Sen. Ted Cruz said he thinks President Trump could “absolutely” be defeated in the 2020 election and predicted there could be “staggering” Democratic voter turnout.
He said in an interview with PBS’s “Firing Line with Margaret Hoover” that aired Friday that he believes the presidential election will be a “coin flip” and placed Trump’s reelection chances at “50-50.”
Asked if Trump could be defeated, Cruz responded, “Absolutely. I personally handicap the 2020 election as a coin flip. I think it’s about 50-50.”
