Bernie Sanders appears to have predicted how the 2020 election has played out so far in a viral week-old video.
Speaking on a 10-day-old video of Tonight Show, the video of Senator Sanders is now going viral on Twitter, with people claiming that he "predicted" exactly what happened.
Sharing a clip of the interview, one Twitter user wrote: "It's nice for this Bernie Sanders prediction to come 100% true on election night, just as one last reminder to Americans of what they could have had."
A second wrote: "For anyone that's unsure what’s going on with the US election, Trump's remarks, why the numbers are looking like they do and why the next few days are fundamental for democracy. Here's a shockingly accurate pre #ElectionNight prediction from Bernie Sanders."
Meanwhile, a third added: "So far Bernie Sanders prediction is undefeated. Let's see what them mail in votes say [sic]."
In the footage, which aired on October 23, host Jimmy Fallon asks Sanders when he thinks that the American people will know the result of the election.
He then explained that because of the large number of mail-in ballots, it could be some time before a conclusive result is known.Watch Sanders' election night prediction below:
"You're going to have a situation, I suspect, in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, other states, where they are going to be receiving huge amounts of mail-in ballots," Sanders said in the clip.
"Unlike states like Florida or Vermont, they're not able - for bad reasons - they're not able to begin processing those ballots until election day, or maybe when the polls close," he continued on. "That means you're going to have states dealing with perhaps millions of mail-in ballots."
As of 6 am EST on November 4, the results in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin as well as in North Carolina and Georgia, have not yet been called, BuzzFeed reports.
Meanwhile, Pennsylvania officials have said that the state's votes will not be counted until Friday.
Sanders then explained that a number of studies and polls have found that Democratic voters are more likely to use mail-in ballots whereas Republican voters are more likely to vote in person.
"It is likely that the first votes that will be counted will be those people who came in on election day," Sanders said. "Which will be Republican."[[imagecaption|| Credit: PA Images]]
"It could well be that at 10 o'clock on election night, Trump is winning in Michigan, he's winning in Pennsylvania, he's winning in Wisconsin," Sanders continues in the video, "and he gets on the television and he says, 'Thank you, Americans, for re-electing me. It's all over. Have a good day."
This comes after Donald Trump made a speech at the White House at 2:30 am on election night where he falsely claimed that he has already won the election and wants "all voting to stop," BuzzFeed reports.
