- In 2016, Trump managed to build a politically diverse electoral coalition: he will have to reconstitute it (and possibly expand it) if he wants to be reappointed in 2020.
- Positive GDP and unemployment figures are a significant selling point for the outgoing president. However, Trump will face two tricky unknowns: the turbulent relationship with the Fed and the tariff war with Beijing.
- Despite his hard line on illegal immigration, the President has a good chance of extending his electoral consensus among ethnic minorities. In particular, it is possible that Trump will be able to strengthen himself among Hispanics: an element that could favor him in some key states (starting with Florida).
- A considerable part of Trump's electoral strategy is to point to the Democratic Party as a radical and extremist political force.
