New Book Predicts Victory for Trump In 2020

A new book co-authored by veteran journalist Salena Zito and Republican political consultant Brad Todd predicts that President Trump will win reelection in 2020, and calls his 2016 victory “far from a fluke.”

“The Great Revolt: Inside the Populist Coalition Reshaping American Politics,” which is out Tuesday, examines why Rust Belt Americans who twice voted for Barack Obama switched their vote to Trump in 2016.

The book has received praise from the likes of conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and CNN’s Jake Tapper, for being the first in-depth look at why Americans backed Trump in 2016.

“These voters believe they’ve been misrepresented, made fun of, and disrespected,” Zito told the Courier-Journal in a recent interview about the book.

In a New York Post editorial, Zito wrote:

“Far from a fluke, the 2016 election was a product of the tectonic plate-grinding of our society — a backlash against globalism, secularism and coastal elitism. An August 2017 survey of 2,000 self-reporting Trump voters in the Rust Belt, commissioned by me and my co-author, revealed their motivations, priorities and decision making, and reinforced what we had found in our interviews.”

After interviewing “several archetypes of the new Trump voter” throughout the Rust Belt, Zito says that there is a “better than 50 percent chance Trump is reelected.

Todd adds that Democrats will likely “nominate someone far left of Hillary and of Obama,” when their best strategy would be to nominate a “red stater like (Montana Governor) Steve Bullock.”

Democrats and political pundits should take Zito’s and Todd’s predictions seriously.

As Tapper points out in his review of the book, “Zito picked up on a political phenomenon long before polls or pundits had any idea of what was happening” during the 2016 campaign.
