Democrats just held their first Presidential debate.
Every Democrat and media pundit thinks Donald Trump is on a downward spiral to defeat.
And now Trey Gowdy just made a major prediction about Donald Trump’s future in 2020.
Democrats are making their pitch to primary voters to secure the Presidential nomination.
Grassroots Democrats have beaten Donald Trump in the election as their number one priority.
So every candidate is making wild claims and promises about their ability to defeat Trump.
But two candidates stood out above the rest.
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Vice President Joe Biden both promised voters they would win the bright red state of South Carolina.
“I think that every state is on the table and there is no reason to believe that it is written in stone that South Carolina must vote Republican all the time,” Buttigieg said.
“I plan on campaigning in the south. I plan on, if I’m your nominee, winning Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, believe it or not,” Biden declared.
No Democrat has carried the Palmetto State since Jimmy Carter in 1976.
And former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy told Fox News that 2020 will be no different.
“I would be willing to bet you, unless it’s a nontraditional nominee on the Democrat side, they are not coming back to South Carolina after they win the nomination. They don’t have a chance in 2020,” Gowdy predicted.
“The only way Democrats can win is if the Republican Party is fractured — and that is how we lost our last statewide race,” the former Republican Congressman concluded.
Democrats may have an opportunity to win some Southern states in 2020.
Party strategists believe North Carolina and Georgia are in play.
Liberals believe changing demographics and an influx of Democrat-leaning voters is enough to push those states into the Democrats’ column in 2020.
But Democrats thought the same thing about North Carolina in 2016 and Georgia in 2018.
They failed both times.
Democrat voters and candidates are looking at meaningless horserace polls and believe that Donald Trump is vulnerable.
But in a May 1983 Gallup poll, Walter Mondale led Ronald Reagan by 11 points.
Ronald Reagan ended up winning 49 states on the way to one of the biggest landslides in American political history.
In fact, the average of all the polls taken this far out from a Presidential election since 1980 missed the final result by an average of 16 points.
Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and the rest of the Democrats will continue to make all sorts of promises about how broad and deep their victory will be in 2020.
But voters should not pay any attention to useless horserace polls and instead look at voting trends and history to see how the Presidential race could turn out.
