Betting odds: will Trump run again in 2024?


 

Will Trump be re-elected? NO!

The Trump's re-election chances are not looking good - He has been behind in all polls since the summer.

If the election had been in June, according to a CNN poll, 55 percent would have voted for Biden and only 41 percent for Trump.

In October the gap even widened a little: In a survey by CNN 57 percent of potential voters said they would vote for Joe Biden. Only 41 percent for Trump.

Self a Trump victory in Texas does not seem certain at the moment - although the second largest state since 40 is a Republican bulwark and is vital to Trump re-election.

In addition: 58 percent hold Joe Biden according to one CNNPoll for more trustworthy than Trump. Biden also has better poll ratings on health, education, and the eradication of racial inequality.

Donald Trump's time as US President should therefore expire shortly ...

This is also the opinion of the best Politk betting providers ...

 

5 reasons against a Trump re-election in 2020

 
First: US economy is down
Secondly: The country is divided
Third: Falling polls
Fourth: frustration
Fifth: Performing in partial and congressional elections
 

1. The economy is broken

Economic success is always cited as the main argument for the Trump re-election forecasts.

Since the US economy collapsed completely in the wake of the corona pandemic, this naturally falls back on Trump.

In addition, there is his inadequate crisis management in the Corona crisis, which has additionally intensified the economic slump.

40 million unemployed will be considering who to vote for in the presidential election on November 3rd. Thus, the Trump re-election chance is dwindling considerably ...

But the fact is he's the worst jobs president in recorded history.

2. Social conflict

The USA has never been so divided as it was at that time - in rich and poor, in black and white.

The United States of America is the result of Trump policies over the past four years.

Many Americans long for peace, stability and reliability again. For a calm, empathic president and not an impulsive clunker.

Mainly because of this, a Trump re-election in 2020 will wobble more than ever ...

3. Falling polls

The approval rate of a president is one of the most reliable indicators of his re-election chances - also for the Trump re-election forecast.

Meanwhile, Trump is in everyone Polls and predictions for the 2020 US election behind Biden.

This value is particularly significant: Anyone who reaches a vote of 50 percent or more in polls in the summer before the election can expect re-election.

However, if the value falls to 45 percent or less, a candidate is placed in a high-risk zone.


Trump re-election forecast: weak approval ratings in the polls

This was the case with Presidents Bush Sr., Carter and Ford, all of whom were later voted out of office.

And that was also the case with Trump in June of this year - he only got 42 percent support for his previous administration. As many as 54 percent were dissatisfied with him at this point.

These polls did not change over the summer until before the election. Biden was or is in front everywhere - sometimes very clearly. And that also in the important swing states.

 

4. Frustration

Another reason that speaks against a further four-year term of office of the incumbent US president in the Trump re-election predictions:

The frustration of the population.

Miss management in the corona pandemic, unemployment, racism demos, police violence are just the biggest issues frustrating the US population this year.

It is therefore more than conceivable that those Trump voters of 2016 who are not to be counted among the “hardcore Trumpists” - that is, once moderate sympathizers - will either change camp and vote for Joe Biden due to the high level of frustration and disappointment over broken promises , or will not vote at all in protest.

 

Trump re-election despite sympathy disadvantage against Biden?


 

This could mean that Trump, who will be dependent on every vote in this tight presidential race anyway, could lose valuable votes.

Especially since, according to surveys, Biden is clearly ahead of Trump on the sympathy factor

 

5. Performing in partial and congressional elections

The Democrats did very well in the 2018 congressional elections, the Republicans suffered heavy losses in the House of Representatives and were in the minority for the first time since 2010.

And that at a time when there was not even a hint of Corona - and Trump could even point to economic successes.

Apparently, even then, the polarization that Trump contributed to the mobilization of democratic voters - especially among the young electorate.

This could also affect the 2020 US election on November 3rd. Because: A high voter turnout usually benefits the Democrats because their base tends to abstain from voting.

Will Trump win re-election? YES!

At almost every Trump re-election forecast at the beginning of February, there was a lot of evidence that “The Donald” will win the 2020 US elections.

The Impeachment as a result of the Ukraine affair Trump - although he is only the third president in US history against whom impeachment proceedings have been initiated - has survived virtually unscathed ...

Even the problems that he mostly caused himself in the course of the Corona crisis and the "George Floyd case" do not harm him in the polls as one would like to believe ...

 

5 reasons for a Trump re-election in 2020

First: Benefit of the office holder
Secondly: Biden is a weak competitor
Third: Promises & Foreign Policy
Fourth: The US economy flourished under his reign
Fifth: The electoral system

 

1. Trump is incumbent

Two historical statistics showed the likelihood of a Trump re-election in 2020 in February:

There have been 18 elections since World War II, and only three incumbent presidents have been voted out of office: Gerald Ford in 1976, Jimmy Carter in 1980 and George Bush in 1992. The incumbent was re-elected eight times.

Means: Like his successful predecessors, Trump also has the advantage of being in office.

This basically gives him the opportunity to determine topics and to satisfy his electorate - apart from that: he is of course much better known than his democratic challenger Joe Biden.

 

Remember, I wouldn't be President now had Obama and Biden properly done their job. The fact is, they were TERRIBLE !!!

In addition: The Trump polls were very good at the beginning of February 2020 - almost every Trump re-election forecast at the time looked accordingly!

A poll by the polling company Gallup on February 4th showed: 49 percent of respondents are in favor of how Trump does his job.

This is the highest approval rating for the US president since he took office!

For comparison: Barack Obama only had a popularity rating of 45 percent at the time of his presidency and was later reelected.

41. George BushRepublican Party1989 - 1993
40. Ronald ReaganRepublican Party1981 - 1989

 

2. Biden is a weak competitor

Not only did the Democrats first have to find a suitable candidate to drive Trump out of the White House, they even had to first agree on a direction.

With Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg on the one hand, and Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on the other, the Democrats were extremely divided within the party.

Ultimately, Biden was able to prevail as a Trump challenger in the primaries.

 

US election 2020: Trump re-election or winner Biden?

If Biden is the right candidate for the presidencyto prevent Trump re-election in 2020?

Biden repeatedly makes sensitive mistakes in public appearances and TV debates: sometimes he mixed up places, sometimes his wife, sometimes the office he is applying for.

Dadruch also rumors of dementia arise again and again. For Trump, these are ideal targets.

It is not for nothing that he likes to refer to Biden as "Sleepy Joe", the sleepy Joe. Such attacks Trump will also ride in the three TV duelsto show Biden as - as he himself says - incapable.

That is why many of the Trump re-election predictions answer the question "Will Trump win re-election" with a yes despite everything ...

 

Biden for President? Opportunities & prognosis

 

3. Promises and Foreign Policy

Despite all of his misconduct, Trump has also achieved positive things.

He has kept promises to his electorate - whether you like it or not, but it's exactly what politicians are always asking for and wanting.

There are also foreign policy achievements. Such as a peace agreement between Israel, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Or the withdrawal of US troops from the Middle East.

The Trump administration has also been able to restrict illegal immigration through agreements with South American states.

In addition, he is the first US president in ages who did not go to war - in contrast to his predecessor, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Barack Obama ...

 

4. The US economy is flourishing

Or he shows his electorate how well he is not and what he has not achieved in his reign so far.

One thing will have to be given to him: the US economy flourished under his presidency! At least until Corona came ...

Economic growth in the USA - in 2018 it was 3.1 percent, in 2019 over 2 percent - is higher than in the EU and the unemployment rate (3.6 percent) is lower.

The growth of the gross domestic product reached almost 3 percent in 2018, one of the highest values ​​since 2000. In 2019, economic growth was still around 2 percent.

Unemployment, on the other hand, was 3.6 percent, its lowest level in half a century.

At the beginning of the year, that was actually another argument in favor of a Trump re-election forecast.

In addition: Since Trump's election, the broad US stock market index S&P 500 has so far risen by almost 47 percent - and thus even more strongly than in the corresponding period during Obama's first term in office.

 

If he succeeds in getting the economy up and running again over the summer and autumn by the election on November 3 and drastically lowering the unemployment rate, this could be a crucial point for Trump's re-election in 2020.

 

5. The electoral system

The president who wins the most electors becomes the president.

Each US state is counted individually, and whoever is ahead receives all electors from that state (“winner takes all”) - their number depends on the number of inhabitants.

For example, while California will send 55 people to the vote on December 14, 2020, Maine only has 4 votes in Electoral College, Arizona with 11, Texas with 38, Pennsylvania with 20.

 

US election results since 1992

Election yearCandidatesvoices
2016Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton 304:227
2012Barack Obama vs. Milt Romney 332:206

2004George W. Bush vs. John Kerry 286:251
2000George W. Bush vs. Al Gore 271:266
1996Bill Clinton vs. Bob Dole 379:159
1992Bill Clinton vs. George Bush 370:168

 

With this electoral system it is clear: For Trump, it comes down to the swing states - the strategically very valuable alternating voter states.

Whoever is ahead there will also win the 2020 US election in the end.

Four years ago, Trump won 7 out of 11 swing states - including the largest and most important such as Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

 

Everything about the Swing States 2020

 

Overall, the Republicans in this system often use their voter potential more efficiently than the Democrats.

In the 2016 election, Trump against Hillary Clinton benefited from this system to such an extent that in the end he was elected 45th US President with 304: 227 votes from the Electoral College (The Electoral College) ...

... although he received a total of more than 2 percent LESS votes!
