I think Bernie Sanders is strong candidate for 2020 elections!

Assuming he is still alive, Trump has a good chance at winning again. The factors that allowed him to win in 2016 are still true today.

I'd agree with carnap. The divide and conquer bit among government is quite strong now, so any push to get him out of office will be met with strong resistance. I'm expecting 2020 to be a record year for voter turnout.
Alcohol may have been a factor.

I think Bernie lost a lot of support from non-partisan voters. (Like myself. I hate Democrats and Republicans!) Do you think he could rally his base again, and get enough "middle" voters to get elected?

Bernie Sanders would get killed in a general election, the republican establishment didn't attack him because he was attacking and feeding into anti-clinton rhetoric.

I voted Warren, but it could be more hopeful than anything. Trump is delivering a lot on America first and America jobs getting factories opened and moved in a way that other Presidents may not have done. This may be a dumb move in the long haul, but as long as the employment and other economic indicators stay positive by 2020, he has a decent chance. Some people voted for him because they said he would do this stuff, even though they didn't believe it, just on the off chance. I think he will even attract new voters from the right wing anti-establishment crowd who didn't vote at all last time.

I also think the Democrats will get more votes though as well (i.e. higher overall turnout). Those last time who thought Clinton and Trump were both awful, and didn't vote, will go for the Democrat this time. Every time Trump says something offensive, it adds another few voters from the young or left wing crowd who might not have voted at all last time. This time the anti Trump crowd will have grown amongst young people who didn't pay attention last time.

I also think some people voted Green last time because they thought Clinton would win, a few of these will tactically vote Democrat this time. Admittedly that's a very small shift.

I kind of expect this as well, but I’m unsure. Don’t you think the persistence of the factors that allowed him to win in 2016 will be perceived as an inability to achieve his campaign goals?
I haven't played Papers, Please in a long time so I don't feel justified in keeping my old signature. Ergo, I have a new one.

No, he can just blame Congress.
