A new report published by Politico Thursday cited multiple economic models and forecasts that show President Trump “is on track for a 2020 landslide” months before the Democratic Party has even chosen their nominee.
“If the election were held today, he’d likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses,” reports Politico.
“Credit a strong U.S. economy featuring low unemployment, rising wages and low gas prices — along with the historic advantage held by incumbent presidents,” adds the report.
“The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it,” added one leading economist. “I just don’t see how the blue wall could resist all that.”

PLAN B: Beto O’Rourke Now Supports Democratic Push to Abolish the Electoral College
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke threw his support behind the Democratic Party’s recent push to abolish the Electoral College Tuesday; saying there’s “a lot of wisdom in that” following the results of the 2016 race for the White House.
O’Rourke was speaking with supporters after leaving Penn State when he was asked if he agreed with fellow Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren in her efforts to end the uniquely American political process.

“Last night, Elizabeth Warren suggested getting rid of the Electoral College. Is that an idea you would support?” asked one reporter.
“I think there’s— there’s a lot to that,” O’Rourke fired-back. “You had an election in 2016 where the loser got three million more votes than the victor. It puts some states out of play all together… I think there’s a lot of wisdom in that.”
PLAN B: Elizabeth Warren Officially Calls for the Abolishment of the ELECTORAL COLLEGE
Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren called for the abolishment of the Electoral College Monday night; saying the US needs a “constitutional amendment” to ensure “every vote is counted.”
Warren was speaking with supporters at town hall event in Mississippi when she called for the drastic reconfiguration of the century’s old American election process.
“I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and makes sure that vote gets counted,” said Warren.
Every vote matters. We need to get rid of the Electoral College so that presidential candidates have to ask every American in every part of the country for their vote, not just those in battleground states. #WarrenTownHall pic.twitter.com/UT3mYHXHQ2

“We need to put some federal muscle behind that, and we need to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws that is out there,” she added. “Every vote matters, and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College.”
