    Werewolf Lying Ted: Trump's chances of winning reelection are '50-50'

    The odds are 50-50 & there isn't even a Dem challenger yet

    Lyin Ted is a ally-aka his bitch & he is coming up w/ only 50-50......





    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said he thinks President Trump could "absolutely" be defeated in the 2020 election and predicted there could be "staggering" Democratic voter turnout.

    He said in an interview with PBS's "Firing Line with Margaret Hoover" that aired Friday that he believes the presidential election will be a "coin flip" and placed Trump's reelection chances at "50-50."

    Asked if Trump could be defeated, Cruz responded, "Absolutely. I personally handicap the 2020 election as a coin flip. I think it's about 50-50."

    "I want to see the president reelected," he added. "And I think he certainly can get reelected. But I think we are going to see staggering Democratic turnout in 2020."

    He attributed this possibly immense turnout to "anger" on the left.

    "Anger is a powerful motivator," he said. "The far left is pissed. They are enraged by Donald Trump, and it means they're going to show up, and the big open question is, does everybody else show up?"

    Cruz, an ally of Trump, narrowly won his 2018 Senate contest against former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas), who is now among the more than two dozen Democrats running for president in 2020.

    Overall voter turnout in 2018 reportedly reached the highest level for a midterm election since 1966.

    It is really sad that some in our country have more trust & respect for foreign adversarial leaders than our own loyal opposition.

    “But I suppose the most revolutionary act one can engage in is... to tell the truth.”
    ― Howard Zinn

    The latest polls show that Trump is trailing, by a wide margin.

    And the polls had Trump losing against Hillary on election night... look how that turned out.

    Polls this early in the ball game are notoriously inaccurate and aren't a reliable predictor of anything.

    Clinton got 3 million more votes than Trump did, and lost.

    Rubbish. There was rampant voter fraud (thousands of votes in the 2016 election were illegal duplicate votes), the quality of the voter registration data in some states is very poor, with missing and obviously incorrect information... we have serious, substantive problems in our voter registration system across the country. But beyond that, the electoral college system is in place for a reason... Because of the structure of the Electoral College, a President must receive national support to win an election. This promotes a healthy cohesiveness within the country because there must be a distribution of that support so that a majority of electoral votes can be received. Our founding fathers were geniuses and were ahead of their time in their thinking.

    Every president in Trump's scenario for re-election needed at least 46% of the total turnout to get the EVs needed. Trump continually averages a point and a half to several points short of that. He will need in that 46% at least the 77K votes that swung two upper MW states and one MA state for him. Even with a good economy, his chances are probably about four in ten right now
    This will be the election map for 2020.

    The latest polls show Crooked Hillary leading by 12 points in a “ landslide.”

    3 million in LA county -- but that doesn't win the Electoral college. California doesn't pick the President, just an FYI.
