It would seem that one of the most pressing questions of the day is whether President Trump can be re-elected in 2020. Presidential candidate-in-waiting Joe Biden suggests that if the Democrats overplay their hand – especially the impeachment card – Trump could get re-elected. Former GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan has recently indicated that it is possible Trump could lose the 2020 election.
Yes, folks. Its True. It is possible Trump could be re-elected or he could be defeated. It is also POSSIBLE that trump could be impeached and removed from office, decide not to run again or suffer a fatal heart attack. The absurdity of the Biden/Ryan insightful conjecturing did not stop all the press panels of parroting pundits to wax less-than-eloquently on one possibility or the other.
Scores of hours of air time by the nets (the media type, not the Brooklyn basketball team) and yards of column inches by the written word newsies have been expended on analyzing, conjecturing, hypothecating, opining and bloviating on the subject – but to what benefit? At the end of every expressed opinion is the same obvious fact – maybe two facts. First, that Trump could be re-elected, or he could be defeated.
The second fact – and the one that demonstrates the futility of such political nihilism – is that none of those offering up their opinions have the slightest idea what will happen in 2020. At this early stage, predictive punditry is far beyond the limits of fact-based rationality.
Are we really going to have to endure some 20 months of debates over the possible re-election or defeat of Trump?
Perhaps we should create a graphic in the spirit of the Atomic Doomsday Clock that would provide a daily assessment of Trump’s 2020 chances – with the needle fluctuating between zero and 100 percent. We could even tie the movement of the needle to a national poll on that specific question rather than the opinions of a bunch of pundits with preconceived desires and biases. That might actually give us a slightly better reading of reality – although slightly better does not mean good or accurate. Just a little less absurd.
So … after taking in all the predictions advanced by politicians, political consultants, the news media and various and sundry others who pop up on my television screen, I have come to one inescapable conclusion. Trump will either be re-elected in 2020 – or not.
So, there ‘tis.

I certainly hope he will not be re-elected. He is a role model for abusive, deplorable and divisive behavior. Kellyanne Conway’s husband is spot on in his analysis of Donald Trump.
I am a Constitutional Conservative. That being said I voted for Trump because of the promises he made about the 2nd Amendment and the immigration problem. Unfortunately he has been waffling on his promises and his appointments of judges to the extent that I am starting to reconsider not only voting for him again but also because of the other elected representatives selling out the conservative agenda I am considering voting as a Constitution Party voter.
I guess it all depends on if the GOP can get it’s act together and use the power the voters gave them in winning control of all three branches of the government and then losing one of them from breaking the trust the people gave them.
Its a little more than a year until the elections and I am watching closely!
This may not be the usual comment type expected, but… Whether Trump makes a deal splitting Jerusalem will have a lot to do with both his and the USA’s future. The Bible shows all kinds of signs that these are the Last Days, and one warning sounds out loud and clear. Jerusalem belongs to God, and He has chosen His people, Israelis, to populate His land. Anyone dividing His land will also be divided.
The recent two eclipse shadows crossing over the New Madrid quake fault might well be where He will split the USA, should we go against Israel and give some of His land to the offspring of Ishmael.
I hope Trump runs again, he has done more in his short time than Obama did in 8 years. Trump could do more if the Dems didn’t fight him every way.
Welcome to the US if you come in legally, other wise go back where you came from.
We have worked hard most of our lives and you want us to give it to you just because you crossed the borders.
I can’t afford my healthcare, why should I pay for yours???????????????????
I believe President Trump has the numbers (votes) necessary to get reelected, however to assure his win he must do one thing: Stop / eliminate significant democrat voter fraud. It was evident to me, given the voter fraud uncovered and the results of the 2018 mid-terms that democrat voter fraud is widespread and rampant. In may cases there were more votes cast than there were registered voters, dead people cast ballots, and last-minute absentee or late votes swayed the election results. President trump must focus on and eliminate vote fraud or risk losing to the unscrupulous democrats.
Trump all the way. He is the only one running for President or re-election that has an ounce of sense. Every Democrat in Washington DC is either completely ignorant, mentally incompetent or just plain evil.
