Former White House strategist Steve Bannon made a bold prediction at the recent Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C. “President Trump’s not only going to finish this term,” he said, “he’s going to win with 400 electoral votes in 2020.” Predictably, the mainstream media scoffed at the idea. The editors of Vanity Fair were only giving Trump a 30 percent chance of finishing his first term, and Bannon was already predicting a second victory.

In the past 50 years, the only incumbent president to win with more than 400 electoral votes was Ronald Reagan, with 525. Bill Clinton got 379 electoral votes in 1996, George W.
