    Then you likely dont know a lot of people. I know plenty who like Obama far more than either current candidate.

    In short...not much.
    This will be about getting voters out to the voting booths or sending in their ballots, not really getting new voters.

    I expect Obama to campaign for Joe. He will help turn the Bernie and Liz voters around and hopefully move the non-voter to the polls. Fired up, ready to go.

    Re: Unleash the Obama!

    I would guess that it may be a REAL gamble on whether or not Barack may have a positive or negative effect.

    It's a gamble I wouldn't take. But -shrugs- I'm in no decision making position about such things.

    Someone else, and/or Barack, will decide this.

    So from the 20 there is now 1. Obama can now campaign without showing favoritism to any one candidate.

    How much effect will Obama have?
    He can't push me any farther to the right....
    ...that still, small voice that is in the back of your mind that says: He's right...

IMHO, the 2020 POTUS election will depend on the US economy much as it normally does - if it sucks then out goes the incumbent POTUS, if it is OK or improving then the incumbent POTUS gets another term.
    Considering Obama's vastly higher overall approval rating than Trump's, I'd say many, and no that doesn't necessarily mean you're a "never trumper".

    A lot of the Bernie voters are unhappy with the status quo and just want more disruption and chaos (they haven't had enough yet, apparently, with 4 years of Trump). If they can't have Bernie, and if Bernie doesn't throw his full weight behind Biden, more of them will vote for Trump.

    I liked Obama and thought he was one of the more stable Presidents but he was a supreme bull**** artist.

    If Obama can just gin up the enthusiasm in the African American community to just get out and vote, that alone will be enough.
