How about 1-year?

But seriously, There have been SO many things that should have prevented him from ever even becoming president, but somehow he keeps on going.

I think 50/50 is about right, today.
Are there odds on this in Vegas?

I mean there technically shouldn't be anything stopping anyone from becoming the president. We pride ourselves on democracy, isn't that the whole point of this experiment that is this nation. I have yet to see any hard evidence to point as to why he shouldn't have been put into office. There's no reason why you or me couldn't be put into office if we got the votes, so why not the man who already has won the votes.

In Nevada, you can't take bets on politics, but you can in the UK and Ireland. Here's one of them:

Don't know why you would think he wouldn't.

I think the Washington D.C. establishment means to hang Trump out to dry and make an example of him for any other outsiders who have any ideas of getting into government. They have had him under intense surveillance since he broke into the scene in early 2016 and they think they got the goods on him and they are building an air tight case to run him out of office. Trump will be lucky to survive.

The only way he's forced out is if the Dems take both houses of Congress in 2018. I would have thought this was a certainty at the end of 2016, but the Democrats are doing everything in their power to leave Congress in Republican hands. They're doubling down on the things that cost them in 2016, they have almost no "bench strength" and their campaign strategy looks like it's going to be "vote for us, we're not Republicans." This probably isn't going to work, especially when their proxies (real or perceived) on TV and in "antifa" are alienating people who would otherwise be looking for a reason to vote against Trump and his enablers. I have a very bad track record on predictions, but I don't think the donkeys have a good idea about how to proceed.

I'm saying he goes the full 4 years and gets re-elected.

Hey - gimme a break. The fact that he was elected in the first place defies all odds. Re-election couldn't be any weirder.

At the end of the day, your politics is irrelevant. We are a nation of laws, not a nation of personalities. This Russia thing has a thousand tentacles, and it will take time to get to the bottom of it all. Who knows what will happen. My only prediction is that this thread will eventually be deleted.

I think Trump will make it all four years, and will easily get re-elected. After a few more years, the liberal media will get tired of talking about Russia, Russia, Russia, and will finally move on to something else. It's sad when you watch the news and all they talk about is Russia. They don't seem to mention anything about how wages have gone up, there's more jobs, consumer spending has gone up, and the stock market has reached a record high.

Watching the news has almost become laughable to me seeing how they obviously lean to one side. They try to make the White House sound like it's in total chaos all the time. When showing images of Trump, they always show a real unflattering picture. When it comes to his wife, they will show a picture taken when she's not smiling to try to make you think that there must be something wrong with the Trump marriage or they will rip her for wearing something that they say causes a "firestorm" on social media. The point that Melania always looks beautiful and the media puts her down, but they continue to run stories about Moochelle Obama making her out like she's some super sexy model just shows you how biased the media is. You can put lipstick on a pig, but you still have a pig.

You were trying to make some valid points until you reached your final two sentences by making fun of Mrs. Obama's name and her looks. At that point your total argument went into the trash.

Maybe the DNC is just going to throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks until their next messiah, Chelsea Clinton, finishes her House/Senate experience, and can make a run for office.

I hope you're wrong. I base my negative opinion of Trump on the actual words that come out of his mouth and his tweets, not the so-called main-stream-media reports. If you read the complete transcripts of his speeches, without knowing who said them, you'd think they were said by a second grader, based on his ability to put together coherent sentences, and his grasp of history, to name a few shortcomings. He's not the best person we could have chosen to represent the USA, and shape policy, by a long shot. He spends most of his time undoing progress that was made in the past.
He said "They are some big, ugly red brick buildings"
...and then they were gone.
