Trump’s victory knocked everybody for a loop in 2016, and no one really knows whether he possesses some kind of magical understanding of American politics now that will help him generate another unexpected result in his favor.

If that were to happen — I don’t think it will, but who knows — I think we would see the non- and anti-Trump voters in the United States descend into nothing less than a collective panic the likes of which we’ve never seen.

The consequences of that panic might be a deep demoralization. Or they might bring about an even more determined radicalization on the left.

The only thing that’s easy to predict is what happens if there’s a wave and Democrats attain a comfortable majority in the House: impeachment by summer 2019.
