Allan Lichtman, the historian who has successfully predicted all the presidential elections since 1984, reminds us that that the main theme of such an election is a referendum on how well the party in power governed.
This is good news - the candidate horse race is really secondary to the years of achievement, or non-achievement, which lie before the race. This is as it should be.
The Republican Party has had total control of government for a year. They have done almost nothing with it.
On the basis of Lichtman's findings, I think they are building toward a disastrous 2020.
