Why Trump Won in 2016 Is Why He Will Win in 2020

In 2016, when Donald Trump was elected, most of those who make their livings prognosticating on politics missed the groundswell beneath his candidacy. They’re missing it again in 2020. And because no one seems to keep score for prognosticators in Washington, they’ll keep on confidently being wrong about Trump.


in 2016, when Donald Trump was elected, most of those who make their livings prognosticating on politics missed the groundswell beneath his candidacy. They’re missing it again in 2020. And because no one seems to keep score for prognosticators in Washington, they’ll keep on confidently being wrong about Trump.


The problem is that they have become estranged from a place called the United States of America. Sure, the Washington media and political elite have always lived in somewhat of a bubble. But the mainstream media’s abandonment of any pretense of impartiality, its cheerleading for Joe Biden, and its tacit support for big tech’s efforts to censor Trump are all next-level achievements in its misconduct. 


Two consequences of this misconduct and ignorance are a failure to detect a groundswell for the president, and a kid-gloves approach to Biden that have left him vulnerable to Trump in the home stretch of the campaign.


The groundswell is real. Two rules of thumb in elections is that energy wins, and strong closers win.


The energy around Trump is unmistakable. It is clear from his rallies, his feisty dominance of arrogant journalists, and his recent debate victory. Unlike most presidents who visibly age in office, he hasn’t lost a step in four years of constant political strife, remaining a happy warrior.
