DNC master mind James Carville made quite a claim this week on MSNBC. The key player from President Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign said that presumptive Democratic Party nominee former Vice President Joe Biden would “wipeout” President Donald Trump in 2020.
MSNBC‘s Brian Williams inquired, “James, everyone I know, everyone I’ve spoken to knows someone who is sick or hopefully recently recovered or on a ventilator or has died of this. What, as you look at this, what’s the short version of what this is doing to Donald Trump, to his presidency thus far?”
As Carville would reply, “First of all, he won with 46.1%. He’s literally lost 95% of the elections that have taken place between the time of his election and right now. His polling numbers are going down, and they’re awful. Usually, in a crisis – I mean, Jimmy Carter was at 67% in the Iran hostage crisis. The prime minister of Italy is over 70%. I’ll bet you 30 governors in the United States are over 70%. I’m totally, totally unimpressed by President Trump’s political prowess. I have absolutely no fear.”
And he stated, “What I do fear is what you had in Wisconsin, which is where they ran amok with the election and stopped people from voting. But if we go to post in November anything close to a level playing field, it’s going to be a Democratic wipeout. People are not going to vote for four more years of this. I hope this crisis abates. I totally do. We have some encouraging numbers even in Louisiana, as the governor said. I watch him every day. And there is some reason for encouragement. But if you look at even Singapore, they’re having a third wave. We’ve got a long way to go.”
Beyond that, Carville added that there’s a rare chance Biden won’t be the Democrats’ presidential nominee. “A lot’s going to have to happen to him if he’s going to lose this election because if he just stands there and does nothing, he’s going to win.”
A rather bold statement for him to make. Time will tell if he’s right.
