It’s finally here! The day on which Americans choose our fate and select the new commander-in-chief is upon us and to call it nerve-wracking is an understatement. Some people deal with the harsh symptoms of election anxiety by obsessively live streaming the results, others prefer to calm down with a drink (or 15) and then some just like to know the odds.
And the odds are extremely important here. Our future is going to be at the will of either accomplished career politician Hillary Clinton or a person incapable of getting a believable spray tan, Donald Trump. Somehow between those two options, the results are predicted to be neck-and-neck.
