Distinguished Democratic political strategist James Carville, who worked for the Bill Clinton campaign back in 1992, predicted a victory for Biden in 2020.

In an interview with The Daily Beast published last October, Carville cited polls indicating strong support for Biden in key swing states, like Pennsylvania and Florida.

“First of all, every poll I’ve seen in Pennsylvania—and I’ve seen a lot of them—Biden is up 53 to 45,” said Carville. “If Biden wins Pennsylvania, FiveThirtyEight gives him a 96 percent chance of winning.”

“[In Florida,] if Biden runs 5 points ahead of where Hillary was, I don’t have to look any further. And if he wins Georgia, which he could, it’s over.”

Carville went on to bemoan the behavior of Democrats, claiming that they were “just shaking and trembling and having conference calls.”

“The Democratic campaign culture is the whiniest, most feeble, most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen. Are we going to lose? No, we’re going to win!”
