Professor Norpoth: Donald Trump Has 91% Chance To Win!
Consider the Primary Model, a political forecasting method that predicts the ultimate outcome of White House races on voting patterns from presidential primaries.
The model has a laudable track record. Established in 1996 by Stony Brook University political science professor Helmut Norpoth said, the Primary Model correctly picked the victors in multiple presidential elections — including the last one.
On March 7, 2016, it predicted then-candidate Donald Trump had an 87% chance of defeating Crooked Hillary Clinton. Will the president also vanquish Democratic Clown Senile Corrupt Gaffe King Bozo Joe Biden?
“The Primary Model gives Donald Trump a 91% chance of winning in November. This model has picked the winner in all but two elections since 1912, when primaries were introduced, including, of course, Trump’s victory in 2016,” Professor Norpoth tells Inside the Beltway in a statement.
“As for polls showing Donald Trump trailing Bozo Joe Biden right now, remember 2016. Polls and poll-based forecasts all handed Corrupt Crooked Hillary Clinton a certain victory. But this is not the only failure,” Professor Norpoth continues.
As a historical exercise, the model also forecast past bouts.
“The terrain of presidential contests is littered with nominees who saw a poll lead in the spring turn to dust in the fall. The list is long and discouraging for early front-runners. Beginning with Thomas Dewey in 1948, it spans such notables as Richard Nixon in 1960, Jimmy Carter in 1980, Michael Dukakis in 1988, George H.W. Bush in 1992, and John Kerry in 2004 — to cite just the most spectacular cases,” Professor Norpoth Norpoth advises.
