    I wouldn't worry about it, I'm sure he's not taking Donalds calls anymore...

    Exactly, we already have Trump caught committing crimes trying to wind and we're still a year out....

    But the bolded is very disheartening IMO. Biden seems to be the guy leading in the battlegrounds, and the guy with the highest A-A support. If he can pull the liberal base adequately, that pretty much makes him the front-runner - for better or worse.
    Again, it is folly to look at within margin of error polling and call that a 'solid lead' or even meaningful; that was Hillary's mistake, or do you mean within the primary?

    As is, Biden and Sanders are pretty much in a statistical tie vs Trump, which means much more needs to be done.

    As to Warren, she has plenty of time to improve her numbers, so I wouldn't be too dismayed; that goes for everyone in this contest.

    It's the same with every election.
    interestingly, the voters should now know all the things they shouldn't like about Donald Trump.

    doesn't seem to matter with him though. i guess if he represented the Party of God it would.

    Actually, I did mean within the primary. But yours was a good post, regardless.

    It's not about 'appealing to Trump voters' though. It's about appealing to voters, period. As it sits now, the field is playing to the hard left, which doesn't play well with the general electorate either. If you get, say, a Sanders vs. Trump matchup, we'll have another election where most voters don't like either candidate.

    Of course the issue at this time is the overshadowing impeachment. Everything is about Trump. It's hard for ANY of the Democrats to get their message out.

    Calls from establishment Democrats - and other candidates. Trump would probably welcome Bloomberg coming into the race.
