I am going to predict right now that there is no way he can win. That he has no chance in hell. I am more confident than ever on this.
The reason is simple. The last time around he had NOTHING that people could judge him on as a candidate. No political record. He could talk shit all he wanted.
Today? We know he’s a piece of shit.
There are fervent sewer rats and elderly fools that support him, But the fact is his approval rating has never polled higher than 48%. right now it’s at 43%
He has he lowest approval rating(even with an inherited positive economy) than any president in modern history. Even on a bipartisan level, he is one of the most disliked presidents in modern history.
And we will all be reminded ad nauseam of all the despicable things he has said and done over the past few years.
Sure, like I said there are sewer rats that like that sort of shit, but as we have seen, it’s a minority. A mostly old, uneducated loud minority that is manufactured and has the full promotion of Fox “news”, but still a minority voice.
No chance in hell.

You’re right that he had no political record (or ever held an elected official position) prior to running as a candidate. Only people (mostly New Yorkers) who were aware of his reputation as a bragger with a big ego, a racist/and making racist comments about many people of color, his degrading insults towards many women, and his attitude/actions toward the Central Park Five, had some incite of him. When he ran for president, he presented himself as ‘charismatic’ to many of his supporters, especially to white nationalists m, in which he spoke their language, so-to-speak; many middle-class Whites/White women, and Whites in rural America who felt forgotten. The latter being the ones that Hillary said Obama couldn’t win, but she could. He already knew he had the support of many republicans/conservative base.
Trump has a lot of ‘young’ fools that will vote for him as well. Let’s not forget many of the students that marched the night before the Charlottesville protest, were many of his supporters. It’s sad that anyone would support someone of his character as president, but unfortunately some did/do.
I think a lot of undecided voters who gave their vote to trump instead of Hillary the last time, won’t do it again. However, I do think some of the Democratic candidates currently running, have a good chance of beating him this time.
I look at it this way, even if trump somehow pulls it off for a second term, (because America has a reputation for re-electing the same president for a second term) this would be his last term, and America will not have to deal with him as president ever again.[Edited 6/24/19 4:14am]
