Do you think President Donald Trump will win the 2020 United States presidential election? Why do you believe that?

The two frontrunners are very weak:

1) Biden - doesn't inspire much, low energy, prone to gaffes (unlike the Don he can't shrug them off as easily).

2) Bernie - too socialist for America (don't listen to the SJWs on here who think Bernie has huge support), very bad for Democrats in swing districts, had a heart attack last year which raises questions about his suitability for office.

3) The whackjob lefties like AOC are dominating media time with crazy policies like shutting down ICE etc.

Yes, but I really hope I'm wrong.
As I've been known to be wrong quite frequently before, I have high hopes that I'll be wrong this time too!

Problem is that I can't actually imagine any of the Democrat candidates beating him, though Bernie winning would be the best possible outcome for the US, imo.

I prefer their crazy policies over Trumps any day. A wall, I mean really? The real wackjobs are Trump and his cronies, everyone can see it, but as long as the rich and powerful benefit from having him there, a useful idiot to take the risks and the fall, there he will remain.

The crazy socialist who thinks bread lines are a good thing? No thanks.

It's a pity the Libertarian party is almost non-existent in any meaningful way. They have some solid ideas. Look into Larry Sharpe, that guy makes a lot of sense.

Yes.

The Left hasn't learnt from 2016 and has continued to allow far-left elements to run rampant in the Democratic party.
Even the left is wondering wtf is going on with their leaders and candidates. It's as if the candidates think it's a popularity contest and seeing each other as their chief opposition.... Biden is only there cause he's the sanest one they could find.

...which is scary in itself.

The Democrats need to center themselves quickly. Granted Biden is probably the most center leaning of the bunch, but they do have some candidates, like Gabbard, who would probably not only be more centered, but also better fit the demographic that the far-left elements are pushing for, i.e. more of a "win-win" scenario.

I really don't know, he's unpopular but he was also not very popular in 2016 and he won then, just barely. I don't think it will be a landslide if he wins though. I also suspect he's lost support, rather than gained it, in the 3 years since the election.

The party of diversity and identity politics has chosen a diverse group of old rich white people as their leading candidates.

Ah yes, good old fox news. How can anyone think bread lines are better than poor people starving to death. Really!
Not entirely sure if that's sarcasm. But yes, bread lines are terrible. Having to wait in a queue for your government handout sucks. I'd much rather the free market allow me the choice of either Checkers, PnP or Woolies to purchase my bread since there is adequate supply to meet demand.

Socialism simply doesn't work. If Bernie's ideas were to ever be implemented the US would suffer.
