We will likely see the largest and most diverse field of Democrats running for the presidential nomination. Here is our Way Too Early List of which Democrats may be more or less likely to win the 2020 nomination and why.
Superdelegates were added to Democratic primaries after non-establishment candidates George McGovern and Jimmy Carter beat out establishment candidates in 1972 and 1976. It was and is a ploy to allow Democrat elites to overrule Dem voters.
Here we are today with only around 3% of delegates decided (yes logicians, that does mean there are 97% of delegates yet to be awarded), and the candidates that are really winning this primary are Chicken Little and The Hulk.
Today the DNC convention begins and from the advance word, we're in store for less schizophrenia and more rational speeches about reality (one of the top banned substances at the RNC).
Finally! After a two month break from debates, the top ten candidates for president in the Democratic Party gather in Houston to debate. And all of them on the same stage on the same...
Elizabeth Warren is everything Hillary needed to be but couldn't be to win this election. She is authentic, inspirational, a woman of the people, sympathetic, has an enthusiastic following in the Dem base and is a powerful and energizing speaker. She is a fighter for the regular American worker who feels left behind or neglected by their government/society, the very voters Trump used to win election because they felt they had nowhere else to go.
Up until now, though there has been a degree of polarization between Hillary and Bernie supporters, a majority of Bernie supporters appear to be okay with voting for Hillary if she is the eventual nominee. However, just as Hillary alienated many Obama supporters in the 2008 primary by trying to smear him with Reverend Wright/unAmericanism and other falsehoods, Hillary's and her SuperPAC's attempt to improve her polling in this way may have the opposite effect.
Hillary Clinton has been justifiably frustrated by polling that shows young women preferring to support Bernie Sanders instead of her. What is questionable though is whether playing the gender card to turn that dynamic around to her favor, is helpful or will backfire.
The next Democratic primary for president in 2020 will not be a Back to the Future experience, Hillary will not be running against Bernie. Whoever the candidate turns out to be, he or she will be the only hope for America to end the destructive rampage of the Trump regime.
DNC, don't chase after Trump voters. Instead, use the Field of Dreams approach, "If you build it, they will come."
