Why wouldn't it? Can you show me a stand-out Democrat to take him on, because I'm damned if I can see one. No, this time he'll do better.
Because he's not popular with enough people. He lost the popular vote last time, and scraped the election via, what, a sub-100k vote lead spread across a few states, and won due to the Electoral College.
Biden, iirc, is leading the Democratic polls atm and whilst he comes with a whole heap of issues, and is hardly super-inspiring, Trump is that turned up to 11 except
for his base. Of course, in an election, people coalesce, but if Trump didn't win the popular vote first time, I cannot see his chances increasing after years of his rule, given how his schtick is directed only
at his base. It's not unheard of, of course: Bush Jr's went up from 2000 to 2004, but 9/11 was a singular event - and Trump is nothing if not relentlessly unpopular with a majority of the US population: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_p ... nistration
