A Trump ‘surprise’ victory is in the offing — here are the 10 tea leaves pointing to it, by Tom Del Baccaro

SLL predicts not just a Trump victory, but a Trump landslide. From Tom Del Baccaro at foxnews.com:

As November 3 approaches, many prognosticators are trying to convince Americans that former Vice President Joe Biden is a lock to win the presidency. Of course, they said the same about Hillary Clinton’s chances in 2016 and it didn’t come to pass. Just as in 2016, there are tea leaves, if you will, indicating that President Trump will win again.

Here are ten of those tea leaves:

1. Pennsylvania Voter Registration 

American presidential elections are decided by the Electoral College as President Trump and Joe Biden both know.

In 2016, Pennsylvania and its 20 Electoral College votes were key to President Trump’s victory. He won Pennsylvania by a slim 44,292 votes out of nearly 6 million. That November, the Democrats had nearly a 900,000 voter registration advantage over the Republicans. That number is now down to a 700,000 registration advantage and has narrowed by 100,000 in the last year.

No one can logically say that improves the Democrats’ chances to win Pennsylvania in 2020.

2. Florida, too. 

In 2008, Democrats held nearly a 700,000 voter registration advantage and Barack Obama carried the state by 236,148 votes. By 2012 that advantage slipped to 558,272 registrations and Obama won there by 74,309 votes.

In 2016, Democrats had a 327,483 registration advantage and Trump carried the state by 112,991 votes.
