Feinstein isn't looking so good.

Chuck Grassley, although he may die before january 3.

When Trump dies Im fairly certain he will rise again after 1 day, not 3 like that lazy Jew.

Rugian, you need to award points for correct picks. It should work like 100 minus the age of the selection. So, if senator Grassley dies tomorrow, god forbid, whoever selected him in UP Death Pool would get 100 - 87 = 13 points. And set the end date, whoever gets most points wins

Breyer. Dems will commit murder to make sure they pick the next Justice. No way they leave it to chance four years from now.

Even if harris picks the next justice they will have to get through a conservative Senate.
Even if they get both GA seats they have to get it by the blue dogs like Manchin.

Biden and Trump have about equal number of years left on average (about 8 years).
So you would want to look at risk factors like being a fat fuck, or recovering from a serious self-inflicted illness.
But since we are looking at living presidents in 2021, here is my list.
Bush ahead of Biden due to better health monitoring for a sitting president.
3 of the list was born in 1946 oddly.

One can only hope darth turtle and Richard Shelby (nasa's deadweight) will be soon ash.

"3 of the list was born in 1946 oddly."
Nope, they were created by the alien technology we stole from the Nazis.

Obama is young and relatively healthy, but he is black and a smoker ( or was) but he will probably outlive them all, might be close with W.
