Posted on 09/14/2017 9:27:24 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Bernie Sanders leads the pack of potential Democratic 2020 candidates with 28 percent of the vote, followed by Joe Biden with 17 percent and Elizabeth Warren at 12 percent, according to a new poll by Zogby.
Between the three of them, they have 57 percent of the vote. Their average age on Inauguration Day 2021 would be nearly 76 years old. Okay, Trumps no spring chicken either, hed be 74. But so much for the Democrats injecting new blood into their leadership, at least for now.
Of course, the poll shows several potentially attractive to leftists anyway but unproven younger contenders, including Kamala Harris and Mark Zuckerberg, and well as veteran pol Andrew Cuomo. But Id say overall, these are leftist candidates out of step with most of America whom Trump can beat in the same way he sunk Hillary Clinton.
What a terrible bench.
I see the list conveniently omits Hillary.
Prunes for the proletariat!
The Democrats have a history of letting a newcomer come forward in Iowa &/or NH cycles like these. In 1976 it Was Jimmy Carter, in 1984 it was Gary Hart (who sabotaged himself), in 2004 it was Howard Dean (who also sabotaged himself). They go to war horses like Mondale, Kerry and Mrs. Clinton when no one steps up or someone who steps up falters.
My prediction is that there will be a newcomer or a second/third tier player who is not a white man who will rise to the occasion, possibly with Sander’s blessing. I believe the default candidate would be Elizabeth Warren, who will go down as all Massachusetts’ candidates since JFK have gone, but she might keep the factions together.
Hillary’s camp will push McAuliffe.
so much for my appetite. Thanks a bunch! LOL
No Hillary, Deval Patrick, Cory Booker, Mitch Landrieu?
Cakewalk, except far too early to know what will emerge closer to 2020.
I thought Not Sure became President sometime around 2505, but maybe I’m wrong.
