Conservative Historian Victor Davis Hanson Claims ‘Trump Is Having the Greatest Political Comeback Since Nixon’

Conservative historian and scholar Victor Davis Hanson was featured on the Laura Ingraham show last night to discuss the current status of the 2024 presidential race.

Hanson suggested that Democrats are aiming to oust Joe Biden from office, yet they don’t know how or when to do it.

He also noted that while Biden’s situation is nearing a total meltdown, Trump is experiencing a significant surge in a political comeback that appears to be historic.


LAURA INGRAHAM: Joining me now, Chris Bedford, senior contributor at The Federalist. And Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. Victor, we’re seeing a lot of division on the left. Obviously, there’s division on the right as well. But just how big of a problem is this going to be for the Biden campaign as reality begins to set in as they get closer to the general?

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON, HOOVER INSTITUTION SENIOR FELLOW: Yeah, I think we’re getting to a point of no return, Laura, with the corruption issue, the cognitive issue, and the unpopularity and disaster of his agenda, and now this defection within the Democratic Party. It’s more of a question of not if they’re going to try to remove him, but when and how, and I don’t think they have the answers to either one.

It’s really the most remarkable meltdown of a president we’ve seen in our modern era, and it’s juxtaposed with probably the greatest political recovery of Donald Trump since Richard Nixon in 1962. And Donald Trump, the more they try to demonize and incarcerate him or use lawfare against him, the more popular he becomes. So, it’s bizarre how things have just flipped since 2021.

It’s remarkable. I think they’re in a dilemma and they don’t — they know what they have to do, but they don’t know how to do it and when to do it…

HANSON: I’m very worried too. I think if you look at every demographic, Trump is doing much better than he did in 2016 and 2020, especially he’s up to maybe 18 percent of blacks, and 42 or 3 percent of Latinos.

But if you have these swing states that have gone from 35 percent mail-in balloting to 70 percent, and the rejection rate of invalid ballots has fallen from 4 to 5 percent, traditionally, down to 0.2 or 0.3 when they’re flooded with them, then you’ve got a real problem that I think that they’re going to have to win by 4 or 5 points in these swing states to cancel out this advantage they have in mail-in balloting.
