4. I thought he was insane last year

But he turned out to be right. Let's hope he is right again.

Prediction prof: Trump will be impeached


By Edward-Isaac Dovere

04/13/17 05:17 AM EDT

The professor who took hell for predicting President Donald Trump has a much longer case for predicting President Mike Pence — and it’s all in his new book, out next week.

Allan Lichtman, a professor at American University, reached meme-status last fall for predicting long before anyone else that Trump would win, using a formula based on the popularity of the party in control of the White House that accurately predicted the eight previous presidential elections. Now Lichtman wants everyone to pay attention to the rest of what came through his crystal ball — that Trump will now be impeached.

The people who paid attention only to the professor’s first prediction include the commander in chief, whom Lichtman says reached out to him during the transition.

“Taking time out of preparing to become the world’s most powerful leader, he wrote me a personal note, saying ‘Professor — Congrats — good call,’” Lichtman writes in “The Case for Impeachment,” an advance copy of which was shared with POLITICO. “What Trump overlooked, however, was my ‘next big prediction’: that, after winning the presidency, he would be impeached.”

6. Do you mean Prof. Allan Lichtman (AmU)?

Stellar statistician Larry Sabato (UVA) also predicted Trump's win, but I'm not sure what he said about impeachment.

8. He could make a lot of money in the predictive markets if he's right

As of this morning, it's $0.15 to buy a $1 contract for Trump to be impeached this year.

9. more likely it won't happen than will

 

I honestly don't understand all the hype about impeachment. How is it likely for impeachment THIS YEAR..when the Re-thugs own everything...the House is going to vote for it when R's control?...then the Senate is going to convict when R's control?...this is wishful thinking that should really be tempered. Yes, we would all like to see it...but we would all like a lot of things...I just don't see it happening, sorry.
