American University Professor Allan Lichtman, predicted a Biden election win last August, using his "13 key factors" system that he designed back in the 1980s.

"The keys predict that Trump will lose the White House," Lichtman stated in a New York Times video op-ed last August, citing factors like the impeachment, “plenty of other scandals” and “social unrest.”

Lichtman had accurately predicted the election of Trump back in 2016, telling The Washington Post blog The Fix before the 2016 election that his "13 Keys" system "point to a Trump victory."

"But I would say, more to the point, they point to a generic Republican victory, because I believe that given the unprecedented nature of the Trump candidacy and Trump himself, he could defy all odds and lose even though the verdict of history is in his favor," explained Lichtman at the time.

"So this would also suggest, you know, the possibility this election could go either way. Nobody should be complacent, no matter who you're for, you gotta get out and vote."
