If the following is true then Trump could win a second term...
CNBC: Markets are shrugging off the impeachment of President Donald Trump because he is not expected to be removed from office, and there should be no negative impacts on fiscal or monetary policy as a result.
Investors have instead focused on recent positive developments, like the trade agreement being worked out between the Trump administration and China, which should stop some strains on the economy and earnings.
“Trump needed his victories. He’s got NAFTA, we got a China deal, and we got a budget. He got all these victories while he was under impeachment,” said Daniel Clifton, head of policy research at Strategas. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that the trade agreement with China will be signed in January.
First, Donald Trump will not be removed from office by the Senate barring some shocking revelation about his conduct and that still may not be good enough.
Second, as everyone reading this post knows elections are about the economy. If the economy is strong in November of 2016 then Donald Trump, despite his negatives, can win the election.
Third, the bottom line is a majority of voters will think about their pocket books when they cast their ballots. If the pocket books are full under Trump, people may hold their nose on his negatives and return him to office.
