When political maven and American University history professor Allan Lichtman predicted Donald Trump would win the 2016 election, I laughed … nervously. When it turned out he’d been right, I wanted to crawl into a hole and die.
When he predicted Trump would be impeached, I was ready to stick my head out of that hole just a smidge, like a diffident prairie dog.
Now? I’m ready to throw off my self-imposed dungeon shackles and start strumming his tune.
Latest national poll from @realDonaldTrump's favorite Fox News is bad news for him. Biden and Bloomberg lead him by 8 points, Sanders by 7 points. In no match-up does Trump get more than 43 percent of the vote! A terrible result for an incumbent president.

Granted, Lichtman isn’t exactly making a prediction here, but such a blunt assessment from a guy who’s proven himself so savvy can’t bode well for the ocher abomination.
The gist of the poll? Trump lags behind every single one of his potential 2020 Democratic opponents. Joe Biden and Mike Bloomberg both lead him by 8 points, Bernie Sanders by 7, Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg by 3, and Amy Klobuchar by 1. In a Fox News poll. And if current coronavirus infection rates hold, either Diamond or Silk will likely get the virus, so his grassroots support is liable to flag ever more.
So, things are not looking up for Suck l’Orange.
Enjoy your weekend.
