Leftist Professor Who Nailed Last 9 Elections Says Trump Wins 2020 Unless Democrats Impeach

A professor at American University who has correctly predicted the last nine presidential elections says that Trump will win in 2020 unless Congressional Democrats “grow a spine.”

While speaking with CNN, political historian Allan Lichtman said that Democrats have no chance of winning the next election unless they begin impeachment proceedings against the president – which he said would be both “constitutionally” and “politically” warranted following special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

“It’s a false dichotomy to say Democrats have a choice between doing what is right and what is constitutional and what is politically right. Impeachment is also politically right,” Lichtman told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin during a Wednesday interview.

Lichtman has developed a system of 13 “key factors” that help determine whether the party in the White House will maintain its hold, according to CNN. The factors range from whether the party has an incumbent president running to the country’s short- and long-term economic conditions to foreign policy successes and failures. If the party loses out on six factors or more, he says they will lose the presidency.

Lichtman says the Trump administration is down three key factors: Republican losses in the midterms elections, a “lack of foreign policy success” and Trump’s “limited appeal to voters,” CNN reported. Impeachment would trigger a fourth key — scandal over the proceeding’s public nature.The Hill

“Let’s not forget, impeachment is not just a vote in the House,” said Lichtman. “It involves public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry, and, what everyone forgets, a public trial in the Senate in which House prosecutors present evidence, present documents, make opening and closing statements.”

On Tuesday, Lichtman told CNN‘s Chris Cillizza “Democrats are fundamentally wrong about the politics of impeachment and their prospects for victory in 2020,” referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s contention that even if the House impeaches Trump, the Senate would ‘vindicate’ him by refusing to do the same.

  1. IMPEACH FOR WHAT? Democrats are wasting time and American tax payer money. Maybe if Democrats were to be back-charged for making false claims to offset what these charades have costs? They would be less likely to so freely engage in this behavior so frequently. I for one say “charge the opposing party and if proven correct the party receives compensation” if the case they attempt to make fails, That party absorbs its cost! That would put an end to these frivolous charges made and lesson the expense on The American Tax Payer.

  2. How ignorant! The Democrats in the House can file all the impeachment charges they want to, but that is not going to get Pres. Trump removed from office. Articles of Impeachment is similar to an indictment, but the “trial” is held in the Senate and the House members do NOT get to vote there. It takes only a 50%+ 1 vote in the House for the A.of I. but it takes 2/3’s of the Senate to convict and remove a president. There are 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and 2 Independents who usually vote with the Democrats, but that’s 53 to 47. It would take 67 votes to convict and remove. That means that at least 20 Republicans would have to vote with the left to remove Pres. Trump. NOT happening! Some RINO’s might not like Trump, and might vote with the left, but 20? No. Not realistic. MAGA/KAG 2020!

  3. The democrats wanted to impeach since the night that trump was declared the winner . I sit back and wonder if Trump ever threw his hands up in the air and said that’s it i quit the democrats could have their way so this is what would happen . The borders would be open to everyone from every country in the world and the good , bad and even the terrorists are welcome and there is an unlimited supply of welfare benefits and money to support everyone , we would deplete our military, protect the illegals in sanctuary cities but make sure our citizens keep getting arrested because there is no sanctuary for Americans , reverse the tax cuts to mess up the economy while going back to trade deals that benefit other country’s and not us . slaughter all cows so they don’t fart while eliminating air and gasoline vehicle travel and start to build railroads to every country where we now fly and make sure everyone gets a a check even if they are too lazy to work and of course welcome with open arms all of the drugs coming across our border so more Americans could die to make more room for the illegals. If the democrats get their way and squash everything that Trump wants it will only be a matter of time when the United States resembles El Salvador and we will be the ones hopping the fence to get out so we could have a better life .

  4. You think Americans day in and day out care about foreign policy successes? Really…….. Of course that’s how the elite think……..because they’re so smart and all they have to do all day is think about foreign policy successes. Folks, we live in a society that can’t even remember that they have a kid in a child protection seat in the back seat of their care and this guy thinks we’re worried about foreign policy success. Name a few that Obama achieved that made our daily lives better. Obama won reelection because the GOP couldn’t come up with anyone better than Mitt Romney.
