This year will be one of the most important presidential elections in the United States, and there are many indicators that indicate that on November 5, the world will witness a repeat of the duel between Donald Trump and Joe Biden four years ago. But this time, the results may reverse and the Democrat may lose. Donald Trump has a good chance of returning to the White House — for several reasons.
Trump is confident of achieving a landslide victory
One factor behind the increase in support for Donald Trump is Americans' dissatisfaction with Joe Biden's politics. The current President of the United States' approval ratings do not look promising. This is due to two problems.
First, Democratic voters are frustrated that the party does not offer an alternative to the 81-year-old, who may not be able to lead the world's largest economy in the long term. After all, the United States is a world leader in supporting Ukraine in its war with Russia, and plays an important role in controlling the situation in the Middle East.
Second, despite the strength of the economy and labor market, inflation is making the cost of living in the United States too high for many residents.
In addition, there is still Trump's strong influence on his supporters, and thus on the Republican Party, which has not weakened during the four years of Biden's presidency.
Everything indicates that Trump will win the spring primaries. In the polls, he is well ahead of his party rivals – Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley. Therefore, he is confident that he will achieve a landslide victory in the vote that will take place today in the state of Iowa.
The Trump paradox
How could he be Donald Trump – a politician who has 91 allegations and charges still pending against him Four criminal cases – Can he become the most powerful person in the world of democracy?

Trump's supporters also welcome his many tirades against immigrants, the Biden family, judges, government officials and left-wing activists. The former president reinforces the idea that Americans have fallen behind and are increasingly strangers in their own country, where elites impose a way of life on them from above.
