    Name Your Best DEM Tandem to Beat Trump in 2020

    IMO, the battle comes down to which team earns the most EVs in the 7 main Battleground States:

    1. Florida 29 2. PA 20 3. MI 16 4. NC 15 5. AZ 11 6. WI 10 7. NH 4.

    These 7 states account for 105 EVs.

    RE: DEM POTUS Candidates- on 2/3/19, I did a General Political Discussion Thread asking posters to name their ONE, TWO, THREE. I listed 1. Booker 2. Harris 3. Warren.

    At this point, I consider a Biden(P)/Harris(VP) ticket the best DEM tandem to beat Trump in 2020.

    In terms of who I like individually: 1. Booker 2. Pete 3. Harris.

    I plan on voting on who I think can win! The Trump/Pence ticket, again IMO, holds the advantage as long as the U.S economy continues to stay strong and grow. Trump's foray into distinctly racist territory this past week give the DEMs a chance to gain ground!

    Too early for me to tell. Biden seems like the safest bet at this point, but the progressives have made their insistence on purity tests very clear, and some of them would sink another election if they don't get their way again in the primary. Russia knows this and will egg them on.

    But this means risking nominating someone who is economically too far to the left for voters in the Upper Midwest, where the election will very likely be decided.

    I know who I currently want to win, but the progressives might not feel as good as I do about them. So I don't know yet.

    Biden hasn’t shown the stamina yet, imo. “Push-ups” aren’t going to help.

    I don't think it matters.

    I think the deciding factor is going to be the effectiveness of the Russian attack on the 2020 American presidential election.

    I just can't see Americans typically reelecting someone as blatantly racist as Trump, I have more faith in them.

    Christ, even Trump admitted it happened in 2016:

    Trump Admits Russia Helped Him Win, Denies It 20 Minutes Later | Vanity Fair

    Before he realized he shouldn't have admitted the truth.

    You have to be crazy to take Trump's racist tweets seriously. Sadly, a few Americans are. ... RIP 8/03 victims

    If it wasn't obvious, I'm not sensing Biden is going to be the one to carry us across the finish line. A big part of his current support comes from African-Americans, and I suppose that this is simply an electability argument.

    If they sense that enough whites would actually get on board with a more liberal candidate, then they might shift support, too. Sort of like what happened in the 2008 primary, when blacks didn't rally behind Obama initially but began to shift their support over the course of the primary.

    At this stage I'm basing my criteria on the ticket that can draw in the independents:

    Biden with Warren or Harris.

    Your fellow Dems just might blow that electoral map all to hell if they get enough states to go along with that "tie the electoral votes to the popular vote" nonsense.

    If these next debates use the Kamala Harris strategy, it’s going to devolve into a food fight. At this point I see a second term, as much as I am opposed to that outcome.

    I agree. Biden/Harris seems like the most likely ticket. As weak a candidate as BIden is, I dont see any of the others beating him. BIden will then, of course, nominate a woman as his VP. Harris seems the most likely to me, but there may be bad blood brewing between them so he might just go with Warren. Either way, I think Trump wins. The idea that Biden brings back the white working class midwestern voter is laughable and I dont see either Harris or Warren helping matters

    Americans don't want to see a food fight, they want to know how they're going to put food on the table.
