Skip to comments.And the Democratic Party frontrunner for president in 2020 is...uh-oh
Posted on 04/16/2018 9:55:26 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
As unpopular as Donald Trump is, as much as he's hated by Democrats, and as much as he is a target of the media, the president may well win a second term in 2020.
Why? Polls show that the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 is former vice president Joe Biden.
Biden has been running for president since at least 1988. He will be a few days short of 78 years old on election day in 2020. That he is the frontrunner says a lot about the Democratic Party, even in the age of Trump.
What Biden should be asking is whether the party wants him, and not just whether he should seize his last chance.
His advanced age – Biden would be 78 years old at the time of his swearing-in – isn't the main obstacle. While Biden's age would be a nonstarter in most presidential elections, if he continues to appear hale and hearty it would not be an insurmountable problem against Donald Trump, who would be 74 himself in 2020.
Trump would also provide cover for another often-discussed Biden drawback: the overly familiar mannerisms that seem terribly out of place in the #MeToo era. Next to Trump's "Access Hollywood" tapes and the litany of sexual misconduct charges levied against the president, Biden's hands-iness barely registers.
The bigger issue is whether there's a place for him atop the Democratic Party that's taking shape after the ruinous 2016 election cycle. This new iteration is unsentimental and unforgiving, and Biden has more than a few conspicuous Senate votes that demand a reckoning in the Trump-era Democratic Party.

Maybe we’ll get to see the two men fight live on stage during the debates.
That’d be fun!
They’ll pull another Barack Obama out of their arse. They need a minority to gin-up the taker class to actually get off the couch and go vote.
Yep, going with an old white guy would be a step back from their progress
Run, Joe, run!
Grope, Joe, grope!
Keep on runnin’ yet mouth, Joe!
Harris from CA.
We need to all agree that Biden could win (wink, wink) and that we’re fearful that he’ll pick up steam and run.
brainless joe provided he can rig it to cop a feel outta the deal for him...???
Good old Joe.....
Staring at his bowl and wondering why they call them Fruit Loops.
Nobody knows about Joe’s inaapropriate touching and stuff because the MSM hasn’t and won’t report it. Ergo, it never happened.....................
They already have one: Kamala Harris... half-black and full socialist.
Kamala Harris is NOT a Natural Born Citizen, just like Jindal and Rubio aren’t.
Of course, it is of no concern nowadays.
I think Slow Joe might just be on the inside track to the 2020 Democratic nomination.
I still wouldn't rule out Jeb running as a Democrat. He might win that way - (D)'s pull the lever for whoever's on the ticket, and Bush might peel off enough NeverTrumpers from the (R) party to win.
It's as good a theory as "Joe Biden/Kamala Harris/Warren/Sanders/Oprah".
We shouldn’t rely on the Democrats being stupid. They do teamwork better than the Republicans, who split votes and allow the perfect to become the enemy of the good.
