Democrats seemed a little nervous for a moment as it appeared Bernie Sanders would win the nomination. They’ve done a pretty good job, however, of coalescing around Joe Biden.
Some of them apparently have sky-high confidence in Biden’s ability to win the November election.
Who has that kind of confidence? Why, the famous Democrat political consultant James Carville does!
Carville, who has worked on both Bill and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns, believes that Trump’s response to the COVID outbreak has been so horrendous that Joe Biden will easily him out in November.

It's always interesting to see how Democrats hold such an unshakeable faith in their candidates. Remember how there was greater than a 90% chance Hillary would win the 2016 election?
Fox News reports the latest on Carville's interview:
Democratic strategist James Carville predicted on Wednesday that Democrats would easily achieve victory in November because of the way President Trump handled the coronavirus pandemic.
"I am totally, totally unimpressed by President Trump's political powers. I have absolutely no fear ... if we go to post in November with anything close to a level playing field, it's going to be a Democratic wipeout. People are not going to vote for four more years of this," he said in an interview with MSNBC, adding that Trump's approval ratings are low given that a national crisis is unfolding.
“First of all, he won with 46.1 percent. He’s literally lost 95 percent of the elections that have taken place between the time of his election and right now. His polling numbers are going down, and they’re awful. Usually, in a crisis – I mean, Jimmy Carter was at 67 percent in the Iran hostage crisis. The prime minister of Italy is over 70 percent. I’ll bet you 30 governors in the United States are over 70 percent," Carville pointed out.
MSNBC anchor Brian Williams had asked about the political implications of the president's response, which has faced repeated criticism from Democrats and left-leaning media figures.
Williams also asked former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele if Trump's base would stick with him through the virus.
"This virus doesn't recognize red or blue. It doesn't respect state lines, it doesn't respect states that have stay-at-home orders versus those who don't. How does this affect the Donald Trump base and is it going to be enough for his base to hear him say the World Health Organization made the wrong call?"
