He was served well by Ross Perot, too, who siphoned conservative voters. Who probably should have won in retrospect because he was smarter than both Clinton AND Bush (and Trump, incidentally).

I don't think you intended it but that made me laugh.

I do expect Trump to win. Every time the Democrats think they have him, it has been proven they don't. I stopped that type of thinking about six months into his presidency. It's not that he's teflon because things do stick to him; it's that the electorate just doesn't care. Republicans would rather stick it to Democrats than be principled. Enough independents think that way too - - and the economy is robust enough that other independents aren't going to rock the boat.

So I fatalistically believe Trump will be elected in 2020.

I think Charles Dance said it best in Last Action Hero: "You see, Jack, here, in this world, the bad guys can win!"
