Default CNN's top 10 Democrats for 2020

https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/13/polit...ing/index.html


1. Elizabeth Warren
2. Kamala Harris
3. Joe Biden
4. Kirstin Gellibrand
5. Bernie Sanders
6. Corey Booker
7. Amy Klobuchar
8. Eric Garcetti
9. Steve Bullock
10. Beto O'Rourke


Trump would win in a landslide over this entire field. Best bet for the Dems is to impeach him before 2020, which I do believe is their strategy.

Aside: Garcetti is a fraternity brother of mine.

Had Biden ran in 2016 i'm sure he would have won. He's a lot more likable than Hill ever was. If he does run I think he gets the nomination.

Would he win? Depends on the dirt that gets slung around IMO.

I like him. His office had a hand in raising the minimum wage, creating more affordable housing, fostering programs to help ex cons find work.

He's hard left. He'd get skewered in a national election for the last one especially. Oversimplify it as tax dollars spent on criminals, or more likely to be said... on rapists and murderers.

"Landslide"

He'd lose to Sanders or Booker. If Dems put forth a female, they'd lose for sure. Trump would jump on that and label her Hillary 2.0 even if she has no similarities other than boobs.

I can't see Bernie being a threat to anyone. Voters were looking at him as the sensible answer to Hillary and Trump. Later we find out about the shenanigans the DNC pulled to get their preferred candidate through the primaries. He lost a lot of steam playing party politics. Meets with Obama, suspended his campaign, and his rhetoric shifted from the american people to... we must defeat donald trump!

it's possible, probably likely given the last 2 elections, that someone no one is even thinking about will rocket to the top.

hussein came out of left field in '08. everyone assumed that whole election was just a coronation for crooked hillary. barry was just some junior senator no one outside of illinois or hawaii had ever heard of outside of a speech or two at conventions.

same with '16- again, choking ass crooked hillary was expected to be the heir apparent. then some crusty old independent socialist from vermont came out of left field and put the fear of the holy ghost in her and the dnc.

at this point, i wouldn't be surprised if we look up 2 years from now and dwayne 'the rock' johnson is the dem nominee. it sounds ridiculous... but who would really be surprised?

also, surprised to not see andrew cuomo or eric holder on the list.

1. Biden isn’t happening. There are way to many videos of him being creepy with women. Including underage girls.

2. Is Bernie a Democrat?

3. I follow politics pretty closely. I’ve never heard of Steve Bullock.

4. Don’t see th Dems picking a white (that includes Pocahontas). They’re clearly telegraphing that they’re gonna run a full-on racial politics strategy.

only during campaign season so he can gorge at the free establishment money/publicity trough for a few months.

i think the dnc de-fanged the super delegates but in exchange said that only actual democrats can run as democrats in the presidential primaries.

The only reason trump would win in a landslide is because a huge swath of american voters view an election as a WWE event where he who can say the most ridiculous things and put on the best show should be president. This is why the rest of the world thinks of americans as dumb.

Has Trump ever said anything as ridiculous as, people in the country illegally should NOT be deported? Because just about 100% of Democrats are saying that.
