American University Professor, Allan Lichtman, has accurately predicted every U. S. presidential election since 1984 and now he’s calling 2016 for Trump. Lichtman uses a system he calls the “Keys to the White House” which he developed after studying every election cycle from 1860 through 1980.
Lichtman’s “Keys to the White House” are the following 13 true/false questions, where an answer of “true” always favors the re-election of the incumbent party, in this case, Hillary. If, however, the answer to six or more of the 13 keys is “false” then the incumbent loses.
Here is how Lichtman answered his “13 Keys to the White House”:
1. Party Mandate: After the midterm elections, the incumbent party holds more seats in the U. S. House of Representatives than after the previous midterm elections. Lichtman Answer: False – “They got crushed.”
2. Contest: There is no serious contest for the incumbent party nomination.
Lichtman Answer: True
3. Incumbency: The incumbent party candidate is the sitting president.
Lichtman Answer: False
