Here is what I think happens Novemeber-January. I think Biden wins decisively. In fact, in think he has clearly won on election night. Nonetheless, Trump attempts to drag out the vote counts in order to have state legislatures decide the election rather than the vote. I do not know if he wins that or not. If he does, he stays president and half the country rebels. if he does not, the other half of the country rebels.

the winning side of this conflict will probably be whoever legally should be the president, because the military will mostly side with them. In the ensuing rebellion, the worst of it will be in the eastern midwest, as no side politically dominates in it, it sits on the red-blue state border, it's densely populated and it contains a lot of the nation's industrial capacity.

there are three forms this conflict could take. One is a dedicated insurrection in the hinterlands, think Shining Path, one is a mass uprising pretty much everywhere at once, and the other is a secession crisis, though that I think only happens if Trump attempts to retain power but legally should not be the president.
