Everyone from Fox News’ Sean Hannity to liberal pundit Michael Moore predicts Donald Trump will be re-elected as President of the United States in 2020, and it’s not difficult to see why.
These predictions might seem a bit shocking on the surface considering Trump’s string of political drama since taking office in January 2017. The mainstream media certainly seizes every opportunity to criticize the president, yet one simple truth remains: the public loves Donald Trump.
Political scientists far and wide agree Trump is a populist and somewhat of a narcissist. These two labels should not be construed as criticisms. Trump is well aware of the fact that mainstream candidates willing to slightly bend their political stances for mass appeal enjoy a meaningful competitive advantage in the game of politics.
Perhaps the most appealing aspect of Trump’s populism is his ability to deliver messages in a captivating way. Trump might be a bit crass on Twitter, but he has what matters most to mainstream America: a sense of humor. Think back to the last time you heard Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or other liberals crack a joke during an interview or speech — that is, a joke that actually makes you laugh. If you cannot remember such an instance, it is because it has not happened.
It’s not just Clinton or Sanders, however — Trump legitimately has no actual challengers thusfar.
New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has emerged as the left’s thought leader in 2018. She will be a mere 31-years-old by the time the next presidential election rolls around, meaning she isn’t a White House threat. Beyond Ocasio-Cortez, the left has a dearth of up-and-coming political superstars. The Democrats have an aging political elite comprised of has-beens such as Joe Biden and Clinton. These career politicians are no longer revered by the American populace. As evidenced by Trump’s election and promise to drain the beltway’s swamp, Americans are tired of the political establishment as a whole — not just Democrats.
Bernie Sanders could rally enough support to be the Democratic nominee for the 2020 Presidential election, yet he will be 80-years-old at that point in time. Trump will be comparably young at an age of 74 in 2020. Elizabeth Warren might have been able to put up somewhat of a fight against Trump if he did not completely destroy her reputation by pointing out the fact that she posed as a Native American to win favor amongst university power brokers. The Democrats lack of viable presidential candidates will eventually become their doom.
Let’s be clear — the idea that Trump will soar to victory in 2020 is not wishful thinking from a bunch of right-wingers. This theory is supported by the same academia that would see him impeached if they could.
Emory University’s Alan Abramowitz rose to fame in 2016 when he accurately predicted a Trump victory prior to the election. Abramowitz’s predictive model projected a Trump victory primarily because it focuses on the importance of the electoral college as opposed to the popular vote. This model also stresses the importance of incumbency and GDP growth. When Abramowitz’s model is applied to the upcoming 2020 election, it predicts Trump will win nearly 52% of the nationwide two-party vote. If Trump were to win a smaller percentage of the popular vote or even lose the popular vote, Abramowitz is adamant he could still win the electoral college in a repeat of the 2016 election.
The 2016 election was primarily decided by white voters without four-year college degrees residing in swing states. These hardworking American men and women are still passionate about Donald Trump and returning America to greatness. We could very well see a repeat of the 2016 election in which Trump’s yet-to-be-named opposition wins the popular vote and loses what matters most: the electoral college.
Trump’s campaign leaders astutely determined the best strategy is to woo the high concentration of neglected and angry Americans in swing states to win the electoral college and conceding the popular vote. The truth of the matter is Trump has been and always will be playing 4D chess while Democrats are still trying to figure which game they’re playing.
