Trump’s aces are peace, prosperity, border security and his Democratic opponent. He doesn’t have a lock on reelection because a straight flush beats four of a kind. But in 2016 he was drawing to an inside straight, and still won.
Back then his opponent’s best argument was that she wasn’t Donald Trump. In 2020 the Democrat will have the issues of white male privilege, soft socialism, and I’m-not-Trump. Not good enough.
It looks like Sen. Kamala Harris has the best chance for the nomination. Nate Silver seems to believe so. Blacks vote for their own, and she’s just as smart and smooth as Obama. But she’s no straight flush, and Trump’s aces should beat her.
