(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – The “Keys to the White House,” a predictive model by Allan Lichtman, an esteemed election forecaster known for his accurate presidential race predictions since 1984, currently suggests a narrow lead for President Biden over former President Donald Trump in a theoretical 2024 election matchup.

Lichtman’s model, which comprises 13 straightforward questions, acts as a barometer for election outcomes. Each question, posed regarding the presidential contenders, yields a “key” for a “true” response; a “false” answer awards the point to the opposing candidate.

Presently, Biden has secured five “keys” to Trump’s three, according to Lichtman’s discussion with MarketWatch. This leaves five keys undecided, offering Trump the opportunity to gain ground as the election approaches.

The “keys,” as outlined by American University where Lichtman is a professor, include metrics such as party mandate, incumbency, third-party influence, economic conditions, policy changes, social unrest, scandal, and both foreign policy successes and failures, along with assessments of the candidates’ charisma.

Biden’s advantage includes the incumbency key, as well as a key for facing no significant third-party challenges. His administration’s economic performance and policy initiatives have also contributed to his current lead in the “Keys” model.

On the other hand, Trump has claimed the key related to his party’s control of the House of Representatives. Lichtman also suggests Trump may have an edge in the charisma department and could gain an additional key if Biden does not achieve a significant foreign or military success.

Lichtman’s track record, including his correct forecasts of Trump’s 2016 victory and Biden’s 2020 win, lends credibility to his current predictions for the 2024 presidential race.
