    Also, if you do that you have to take into account "president who lost the popular vote the first time then won it the second" as Bush II did.

    Uuh yea, but Bush did the 2nd by popular vote, would Trump really pull that off??

    Besides, pretty much still a rare thing to win by electoral college. Trump cant beat statistics.

    The undecided voter asks only two questions when deciding whether to re-elect an incumbent.

    1. Did the world blow up?
    2. Is the economy bad?

    If the answer to both those questions is "No", then they'll vote for the incumbent.

    I like how the validity of the accusation isn't even questioned for a second. Oh someone called Bernie sexist without any evidence or witnesses again. Well guess it's that time again; he's a dirty sexist. Probably racist too.
    It's not so much that it came out through one of the campaigns; Bernie and Warren had a conversation a while ago as they often do. No one was there except them. And only now Warren is suddenly outraged that he allegedly said this (even though he's been saying the opposite since before most of us were alive) right before the first states will vote and her polling poorly, thus necessitating her campaign to make a bold move to have a chance at winning. At least be a little sceptical guys. Innocent untill proven guilty and all that.

    Back on topic: sadly I also have to agree on predicting that Trump will win. Incumbents always have a big advantage. It's exceedingly rare for an incument president not to win a second term. It's also most likely that Biden will win the primary as he is seen as the frontrunner and the safest choice to beat trump. It will then be very much like 2016; the democrat running as a centrist who doesn't inspire large voter turnout, this time with insane gaffes to boot. The low voter turnout will allow Trump's loyal base and the electoral college to carry him to victory again. I hope I'm wrong of course but I don't want to set myself up for disappointment.

    Pretty easy to win the popular vote when you're opponent is bland and you have half the country drinking your kool-aid and pro america bullshit.

    Trump does has a bad habit of screwing up and getting into controversies, some intentional and some not.

    Case in point, he's already tweeted in support of that gun rights rally in coming up in Virginia. While nothing might happen at that rally, considering history one would think it'd be smarter to not tempt fate.

    Trump doesn't have Osama bin Laden to come out and campaign for him like Bush did though; security was a major issue for late deciding voters.

    George the Lesser is the only President to have been re-elected after first winning via electoral college only.
    Complicating things since 2009.
