Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone gets real about Trump

Still hates him of course, but is not living in a dream world like all those others.

Trump’s Chances in 2020 Are Better Than You Think
...

In a media business geared toward reassuring demographics, audiences during the Trump presidency have been deluged with stories about his vulnerabilities, leaving the impression that his disastrous presidency has fatally wounded him as a politician. We’ve been treated to a succession of wish-fulfillment exercises disguised as news features — a stream of “last days of the Trump administration” pieces reappearing across two years of scandals. These have created the expectation that not only will Trump not be re-elected, he may be dragged out of the White House at any moment. But such cheery stories run counter to reality. By any rational standard, Trump in the past two years has made huge political gains.

For all of his gaffs and low class postings, he has not done a bad job to date. I think the SJWs has shot their was with the "racism" accusations and all they are going to be able to do is to sputter.

I would be that he'll be handily reelected.

The notion that he could be reelected is almost as far-fetched at the notion that he could be elected in the first place.

I remain firm in my prediction that he will be removed from office no later than halfway through his third term.

There have been even more bizarre comebacks...

Marion S. Barry Jr., a sharecropper’s son and civil rights pioneer who became a flamboyant and polarizing mayor of Washington, went to prison on a cocaine charge and then recaptured City Hall in one of the most improbable comebacks in the history of American politics...
