Earlier in 2020, between March and early May, due to a 'rally round the flag' effect at the start of the COVID pandemic.

If the election was held six months earlier, Trump would've probably eked out an EC win, with his OTL states + AZ, GA, WI, and PA. Perhaps even held MI and flipped NV, too.

Anytime except 'Rona, Impeachment, and the end of 2017.

Perhaps just after the first impeachment. Many people saw it as pure theater and a foregone conclusion, since the Republicans still controlled the Senate.

I'd probably say around May 2019 till May of 2020 were the points in his Presidency where he had the best odds at a 2nd term. I would say the end of 2017 and  post May 2020 were the points in his Presidency where his odds were the lowest.

I need to disagree about impeachment. His approval ratings went up as a result of impeachment, and only came down once COVID really took hold in the States and it became clear he wasn't going to do anything about it.

Early 2020, pre COVID

The Democrats were looking like fools between impeachment and the messy primary.

I remember polls showed Trump strongly ahead in Florida and Ohio, with states like WI and PA as tossups. Considering polls always underestimate him, Trump probably would have won a larger victory than 2016.

The first quarter of 2017 and the onset of coronavirus in April 2020. I can also respect the argument for the months immediately before COVID hit, but I think that's about it.

Early 2017 and then 2019 through late spring 2020.

After the midterms and then pre-covid, followed by a brief period after the RNC when BLM and other social issues started dogging the Democrats a bit too much

In retrospect, I don't think he would've beaten Trump before 2020

December 2019.

It was obvious by January that Trump messed up when he refused to close the border to prevent the disease from spreading.

The bleach thing on national TV was the final nail, I stuck 1000 bucks on Biden to win the day after.
