Romney Weighs in on Trump's Chances of Winning the 2020 Election

Share

Current state and national polls appear to show that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is headed for a victory in the November general election. 

But, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is not ready to count President Donald Trump out. Speaking to reporters on Monday, he said he believes the president has “excellent prospects” of winning re-election.

Last week, he said he thought Trump had about a 40% chance of winning the election. 

Romney, who has been a critic of Trump, said that he “did not vote for President Trump.” However, he did not reveal who he voted for.

And on Monday, he told reporters that he “probably won’t” share who he cast his vote for either.

In June, Romney said, “I’m confident that we will keep the majority in the Senate.”

He added, “And I actually, have long predicted the president will be reelected — I continue to think that’s the case.”

While Romney said he believes the president has a good chance of winning another four years, polls show that Biden has maintained a lead over the president. 

An average of polls by RealClearPolitics shows that Biden has a 7.9 point lead over Trump. Additionally, FiveThirtyEight’s election model gives Trump a 13% of winning the election.

Still, during a phone call with campaign staff, Trump predicted, “Let me give you the real truth, and they know on this, too, by the way: We’re going to win. I wouldn’t have told you that maybe two or three weeks ago.”

“I’m more excited today than I was two weeks ago. Two weeks ago, I was in the hospital and people were shocked that I came out so fast and so healthy,” he added.
