According to a Yahoo.com report, veteran Democratic strategist James Carville said he believes the President could abandon his run for reelection is poll numbers show he is going to suffer a “landslide defeat.”
“This is not a part that is falling apart,” Carville said on Yahoo News’ podcast, Skullduggery. “This is a party that has already fallen apart. And Trump is going to have to come to grips with (deciding) ‘am I better off saying I’m not running and coming back in 2024 … or getting the living crap beat out of me.’
“He’s going to conclude with Jared (Kushner) that his brand is worth more resigning than it is getting destroyed — and when I say destroyed I mean 1932 destroyed,” he added.
In 1932, Roosevelt defeated Hoover with 472 electoral votes to 59.
Carville’s prediction came a day after polls showed the President falling behind in key swing states, according to the report.
Still, it’s hard to imagine the President not making a run at a second term.
