This website is supposedly run by Edwin Deagel and is very reputable.
The forecast for population for USA is 319 million now -> decreasing to only 65 million in 2025, just 9 years.

That's 4/5 people gone, and only 1 out of 5 left.

I can't imagine such a severe population reduction, even by plague, and nukes would seem like 99.99% elimination. Are they still predicting this? Has anyone figured out why, or if this is just a mistake?

Nukes are more survivable than you think. Still they result in a place that people will be complelled to move away from because no one wants stronium in their bones so total residence would go way down. If one bomb hit say DC then people would try to move to a more stable country. That would include both Canada and Mexico. The Fallout would effect New York and that city would empty as well. Well everything between them would. I've played way too much with that nuke simulator.

According to the site, Canada and Mexico's populations will also decrease.

Disease outbreak is my guess. We have seen small outbreaks of radically different sicknesses (and also different from what the media reports as happening, see: ebola, zika). Chemical weapons attack by "terrorists"?

By the way, no pandemic or nuclear war is included in the forecast.

The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States. The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States. This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy. Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!! We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe - suffering a similar illness - won't be relevant. Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible. Take into account that the Soviet Union's population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then. The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say "Twice the pride, double the fall"? Nope. The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system. When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next. At least younger people can migrate. Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s. The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union's one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result.

Yeh.. SURE/S
