Assuming no wars that are bad enough for the draft to be resurrected, and assuming no serious recession during his term...

I'd say yes.

All this winning is almost painful at this point, winning again in 2020 would just be such a supreme victory

You might as well ask whether people support Trump or not. The answers you get reflect existing opinions and nothing more

I think it entirely depends who he is up against. Right now, I'm not seeing any really exciting frontrunners in the Dems lineup, and I say that as somebody who leans left

However, I do think that at least some of the "Never Trump" people who voted for a 3rd party as they couldn't stand Hillary either, just might vote D this time, regardless of candidate, in the hopes of getting Trump out. Not all, but some I know who voted 3rd party have already indicated as such.

Regardless, I think it will be a close race- probably closer than 2016.

He may accomplish all of his campaign promises by next year and he may choose not to serve another four years.

Sadly, I think Trump will win. What's more....he jokingly made reference to serving a third term. I donít think he was joking. I fully expect him to try to serve as president for life. We'll find out more after he wins the second term.

They also say he won’t run in 2020. If by some wired quirk, he does run in 2020 - he had ZERO chance.

If believing all those folks makes people feel all warm and fuzzy .... I guess it’s better than hiding under a desk and sucking a thump. Keep on keeping on, it’s working out great so far. MAGA scares the SNowflakes and LIV’s.

What?!? Key Republicans have not only distanced themselves from him but outright opposed him since the day he declared himself a candidate. And nearly all of them have paid a dear price for it. Where's McCain today? Where's Ryan today? Irrelevant. Maybe you missed the story earlier today where Trump-bashing Mark Sanford lost his primary when Trump got involved and admits his political career is likely over?
Ousted Trump-bashing Rep. Mark Sanford acknowledges his political career is likely over | Fox News


If anything, key Republicans are learning not to tangle with him.


That said, it's too early to tell. It looked like the elder Bush was a lock two years out, fresh off a resounding victory in Iraq. If the election were held today, my money would be on Trump. But two years is plenty of time for the economy to crater, unpopular wars to flare up, or a vibrant Democratic candidate to emerge. The latter is the most important and the least likely.


The Dem tactics of ridiculing Trump, opposing everything he does, getting "outraged" over anything and everything, and siding with illegals and criminals over law-abiding Americans have been counterproductive. What they need is a vision that inspires people on their own merits, not a platform of "not Trump".

No, heís too big of a drama queen to get elected again. He spends too much time running to pep rallyís and tweeting about the left and boasting about nothing. The majority of his own party a have had enough of this
Man child president. If Muller isnít able to find nothing oh him heíll finish out his first term.
His lies are enough to keep him from being elected as well.
