Economic Models Show Trump on Track for Landslide Victory in 2020

President Donald Trump is on track for a landslide victory in 2020, if economic models are to be believed. According to a new report from Politico, a number of economic factors are boosting Trump’s reelection chances.

The models that are predicting a Trump win in 2020 have “strong track records of picking presidential winners and losers,” according to the report. Here’s why they say he’s in a strong position:

Credit a strong U.S. economy featuring low unemployment, rising wages and low gas prices — along with the historic advantage held by incumbent presidents.

Conversely, should the economy nosedive before the election, the president could find himself in a tougher position for his reelection. Trump’s generally low approval rating also puts him at risk.

But if the economy is the driving factor in the 2020 campaign, the president is in strong position.

“The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it,” one predictive analyst told Politico. “I just don’t see how the blue wall could resist all that.”

His model shows Trump winning the electoral college with 294 votes.

Earlier this month, Gallup found 56 percent of voters said they approved of Trump’s handling of the economy, a record high for the president. Unemployment dropped to 3.8 percent in February and wage growth hit a 10-year high.
