Known as the Nostradamus of US politics, this modern-day seer predicted that Joe Biden will win the next Presidential election.
Allan Lichtman, an author and a history professor at American University, disclosed his prediction with The New York Times.
His revelation is part of The New York Times’ op-ed video published on Wednesday.
There, he burst it out where the pollsters and the pundits got it wrong.
Lichtman said in the Times’ video:
“The pollsters and the pundits cover elections as though they were horse races.”
“But history tells us, voters are not fooled by the tricks of the campaign.”
“Voters vote pragmatically according to how well the party holding the White House has governed the country.”
Lichtman’s prediction model looks at 13 different categories, he called the “Keys to the White House.”
But who is Lichtman, and what were his past predictions that came true?
He is a historian who has correctly predicted every presidential election since 1984.
Two years before the 1984 election, Lichtman predicted that the winner is Ronald Reagan, even before his contender is.
In 1988, he said it will be George Bush, Sr.
He foresaw Bill Clinton winning the election in 1992.
The history professor still got it right when he said former Vice President Al Gore would win the election in 2000. However, Gore won the popular vote, but former President George W. Bush won the electoral college.
In 2004, he predicted that Bush that will win.
He anticipated that former US president, Barack Obama, would win the 2008 election.
He even the guessed that reality TV star, Donald Trump, will take the White House in 2016.
Plus, a bonus, he had also prophesized that he will get impeached.
Push Back From The Trump’s Campaign Camp
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh will not take it sitting down and gave a push back.
“This is an election like no other in history.”
“The choice couldn’t be more clear.”
“It’s Between President Trump’s established record of accomplishment for all Americans and Joe Biden’s 47 years of failure and acquiescence to the extreme left,” Murtaugh said.
