You may have assumed it. You may have not.
But now you know for certain.
Based on strong evidence, President Trump has an excellent shot at being re-elected to a second term in office.
From Business Insider:
President Donald Trump has been a historically unpopular president for most of his time in office, and his administration has been plagued by record-setting turnover and difficulties getting key initiatives off the ground. Despite all of this, recent evidence suggests Trump still has a good shot of being reelected in 2020.
The president’s approval rating as measured by Gallup stands at about 45%. Trump’s most recent predecessor, President Barack Obama, had an identical approval rating at this point in his presidency and was reelected in 2012.
Comparatively, in mid-April 1995, President Bill Clinton had an approval rating of 46%, according to Gallup, and he was also reelected.
As an incumbent, Trump also has an inherent fundraising advantage, with Democratic funding split among a crowded field and many 2020 Democrats entering the race only in February or March.
The president raised $30 million in the first quarter of 2019 and has about $40 million in cash on hand. Sens. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, who are leading Democrats in terms of money raised, raked in $18.2 million and $12 million respectively in the first quarter.
If you don’t love – let alone like – America, there’s no need to stick around.
Unfortunately, every single contender running for president on the Democrat side continues to push the notion that America was never great.
On Monday in South Carolina, it was South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s turn.
Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg took a jab at President Trump on Monday while delivering a speech in South Carolina, saying America’s past “was never as great as advertised.”
“So many of the solutions, I believe, are gonna come from our communities. Communities like the one where I grew up, which is an industrial mid-western city,” the former South Bend, Indiana mayor stated. “That is exactly the kind of place that our current president targeted with a message saying that we could find greatness by just stopping the clock and turning it back.”
“That past that he is promising to return us to was never as great as advertised, especially for marginalized Americans… and there’s no going back anyway.”

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, says California Senator Kamala Harris will “most likely” be the Democrat nominee for POTUS next year.
Although, Newt says Buttigieg could be “dangerous” in 2020.
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., will “most likely” be the person Democrats pick as their 2020 presidential nominee, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday, but he believes South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg may also be a “dangerous opponent” against President Donald Trump.
“She’s very articulate and I think a likable person, and I think that she represents a new generation in a way that [Joe] Biden and [Bernie] Sanders are going to work very hard to be able to match,” Gingrich told CBS News. He added that Harris’ California base and her personal likability as the assets that will make her a serious contender,
This should terrify all Americans.
