Nick Confessore, a political reporter for The New York Times, told “Morning Joe” on Tuesday that President Trump is “the odds-on favorite to win reelection” based on current numbers.

“I’m skeptical of the [Trump] skepticism,” he said. “If I had to place some bets, I’d give him odds.”

Confessore cited the booming economy as the strongest indicator that Trump is sprinting towards a reelection win.

“If the economy keeps rolling ahead, any president is difficult to beat,” Tulane Professor Walter Isaacson commented. He noted, however, that Democrats would deploy accusations of corruption against the Trump administration in 2020.

A CNN poll, released Tuesday, found that Trump enjoys higher approval ratings than both Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton at this point in his presidency. Both won reelection.
