Biden or Trump?: Prof. Lichtman predicts White House winner [Video]

Biden and Trump: a professor of history predicts the winner of Tuesday’s election

Allan Lichtman, a history professor at American University, known as the “Nostradamus” of presidential elections, has pronounced his verdict for 2020.

In a video made for New York Times in August, Lichtman announced the winner.

It is not Donald Trump.

Lichtman is taken seriously by pundits having correctly predicted the winner of every White House race since Ronald Reagan’s reelection triumph in 1984.

Professor Lichtman: Predicts Trump will lose November election

​The professor uses a system of “13 keys” for his predictions that include such factors as the economy, incumbency, social unrest and scandals.

Each key is a binary statement which can be answered as either true or false.

And if six or more keys are false, the current incumbent of the White House is seemingly on his way out.

The “keys” also factor in a candidate’s personal charisma.

Joe Biden gets seven out of 13 keys in his favour, according to the system touted by Professor Lichtman.

“The keys predict that Donald Trump will lose the White House this year,” Lichtman said.

  1. Even a kid knows that Trump will fail. He is bunch of shit! He cannot win and worse still he will serve term in jail.

  2. Truth is bitter. When he predicted in 2016 that Trump will take the lead, nobody attacked him. Now, he has predicted a new face in the White house, he is being attacked
    From his prediction he uses 13 key parameters, which shows he knows what he is talking about

    • What are you taking about? He has a job. He is a tenure history Professor at American University in Washington, DC. He has been doing this for years and he was the only one that predicted that Trump was going to win in 2016. So what’s your beef with him? Why don’t you come out and say that you want Trump to win.
