    Who will be dem candidate when Hillary crashes and burns?

    Hillary Clinton is practically a republican, so she's my favorite of the dem candidates. However, recent polls show her popularity at an all time low. As in 2008, the more the public hears from her, the less they like her.

    In 08, Obama used this to his advantage, came out of nowhere and beat her.

    This will probably happen again. So who is the candidate in the dem field that will overtake Hillary this time?

    Hillary won't be crashing or burning, so you left out a category, imo.

    I didn't see an option for Hillary Clinton. You should edit the poll.

    Re: Who will be dem candidate when Hillary crashes and burns?

    I have this crazy theory that Hillary is going to stay in the race long enough to absorb most of the attacks from the right, then drop out of the race the day before the convention, and Warren will somehow end up getting the nomination.

    Warren would look fairly unbattered while whoever the republican candidate ends up being will have been beaten up by the other 364 republican candidates plus Clinton.

    Warren ends up winning all 50 states plus carries enough democrats on her coattails to win back the both houses of congress. 78 days later the name of the country is changed to USSA - United Socialist States of America.

    I would be shocked if he ran. Even more shocked if he got the nomination.

    Read the question. AFTER Hillary crashes and burns, who will take her place?

    Re: Who will be dem candidate when Hillary crashes and burns?

    If Hilary crashes, still think O'Malley is the best chance. Sanders plays pretty well to the base, but can't see the DNC or big donors really getting excited enough to take the general election (unless the right puts up a major dud candidate). O'Malley can play the base, but (from what I feel) can show ability to compete in the general election. Can possibly use the metrics approach to show willingness to take moderate positions, probably have a few other things I don't know about yet he could use too.

    Still believe Jim Webb, ignoring skeletons, would have the best chance in the general election but I can't see him getting much traction within the party. Seemed one of the few candidates on the Democratic side that could run to the right of Hilary.
