It’s far too soon to make definitive forecasts about who will win the presidential election in 2020. But it’s not too soon to offer forecasts about who will not win. Right now Joe Biden tops that list.

Of course he’s ahead in the national polls, but there’s no such thing as a national election in the U.S. Primaries go state by state and the general election also goes state by state through the Electoral College. “National” polls that show Biden ahead by 20 points or more are mostly about name recognition and are not conducted at the state level.

A huge advantage in California and New York (both of which obviously go to the Democrats in the general election) does you no good when the fight is actually in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. When you look at separate polls for the early primary states, Biden’s lead in Iowa and New Hampshire is much smaller.

This article highlights another Biden weakness. While Biden was vice president, he was busy organizing sweetheart deals in the name of his son, Hunter Biden, with China and Ukraine. China gave Hunter Biden over $1.5 billion for a private equity fund. At standard 2% management fees, that means $30 million per year to the fund managers, including Hunter Biden.

Then Hunter Biden received over $3 million as an officer of a Ukrainian energy firm. Meanwhile, Joe Biden threatened to withhold over $1 billion in U.S. aid if Ukraine did not fire the prosecutor looking into wrongdoing by his son. The prosecutor was fired.

With scandals like these (and more) waiting in the wings, Biden’s run for the nomination should be a short one. Look for Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris or one of the other top-tier Democratic contenders to emerge from the pack by next March. Investors should study their economic policies closely (higher taxes, more regulation, Green New Deal) to prepare for what may be coming.

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
