LETTER: I predict Trump will pull out of the race by mid-October

The Republican presidential nominee loses in the Electoral College race as opposed to the popular vote and will refuse to concede a loss to Hillary Clinton.

In the end, this may not be the usual election.

Connect the dots with possibility and probability.

I predict Trump will pull out by mid- to late October.

Remember, it is the Electoral College, not the popular count, that decides a win for the White House.

Given the numbers today, Clinton wins.

Because Trump is Trump, he will not concede a loss and will deny a win to Hillary by quitting the race.

It will be more of a coronation (Queen Hillary) than an election to U.S. president.

You heard it here first.

P.S. I think both Republican and Democratic candidates for president are losers.
