Professor Alan Lichtman has some super bad news for Democrats who think they might have a chance at unseating President Trump in the 2020 election, and boy oh boy is this going to make the liberal tears flow like rivers.
According to Lichtman, who has accurately predicted the last nine presidential elections, President Trump is all but guaranteed a victory next year, unless he is impeached and removed from office.
The likelihood of said scenario actually happening is pretty darn slim, so this news will probably send the left spiraling into the pits of despair.
Lichtman said on CNN that Trump’s only re-election roadblock will come if “Democrats grow a spine and do their Constitutional duty, and move into an impeachment inquiry.
“It’s a false dichotomy to say Democrats have a choice between doing what is right and what is constitutional and what is politically right,” Lichtman explained. “Impeachment is also politically right.”
Lichtman went on to debunk the idea that impeachment would backfire against Democrats, explaining the road to George W. Bush’s presidency — a major Republican victory — was paved by Republicans pursuing impeachment against Bill Clinton.

For those of us who have been pleased with Trump’s performance thus far, this is pretty good news. With the accuracy rate Lichtman has going on, there’s not much of a shot he’s wrong here.
More than likely the left will pick up their efforts to try and find something to nail the president for, despite the fact they’ve failed time and again to do that, the latest attempt being the Russian collusion investigation followed by screams of obstruction.
They seem to know that if they go head to head with Trump they aren’t going to come out of the situation victorious.
It’s nice to see these folks sweating for a change.
