Election 2020: Trump 'Will Be Reelected", GOP To Maintain Senate Control
Election 2020:Trump 'Will Be Reelected" GOP To Maintain Senate Control, Romney Predicts
Republican senator Mitt Romney from Utah, the most voluble Trump critic among Senate Republicans, believes the GOP will retain control of the Senate after the November 3 presidential election. Incredibly, the only Republican senator that voted to convict Donald Trump for abuse of power (the first article of impeachment) on February 5, again predicts Trump will win reelection.
Even more stunning is some people close to Romney say the senator won't even vote for Trump in November. Citing people familiar with the way Romney thinks, The New York Times reported Romney could again write the name of his wife, Ann, on the presidential ballot (as he did in 2016) or cast a different vote. Romney was the Republican candidate for president in 2012. He lost to Barack Obama, who won a second term as U.S. president.
"I'm confident that we will keep the majority in the Senate," said Romney Wednesday. "And I actually have long predicted the president will be reelected. I continue to think that's the case." Romney, who has referred to Trump as a "con man," predicted Trump's reelection as far back as 2018. On June 8 of that year, Romney said Trump will "easily" win the GOP presidential nomination in 2020 and "solidly" win a second term because of the great economy.
“I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages,” said Romney at the time.“But I think it’s also true because I think our Democrat friends are likely to nominate someone who is really out of the mainstream of American thought and will make it easier for a president who’s presiding over a growing economy.”
In light of current knowledge, the Democrats didn't nominate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, as its presidential candidate. Romney had formerly accused Sanders of being way too far left and out of the mainstream of American thought.
The Democrats' candidate is Joe Biden, who will be formally nominated in August. Poll after poll has shown Biden beating Trump, and the newest ones predict Biden will even win the battleground states that allowed Trump to win the presidency in 2016.
Even the strong economy Romney referred to in his 2018 prediction is gone. The raging COVID-19 pandemic plunged the U.S. economy into recession in February. More than 40 million Americans are now unemployed -- a fourth of the entire U.S. workforce -- due to the massive economic damage inflicted by the pandemic. Some analysts predict the country's GDP will be slashed by an unimaginable 40% this year. A full recovery for the economy is predicted only by 2030.
peluang Trump utk menang masih tinggi krn suara republican terkonsentrasi ke Trump. dan para pendukung tetap abaikan isu rasial. sejak era Clinton klo ga salah, masyarakat AS sudah masuk trend 2 periode. jadi sejak itu presiden AS selalu 2 x berturut turut terpilih. ini bukan berarti prediksi. cuma selingan aja bahas peluang Trump.
