The American electorate is sure to be inundated with the idea that 2020 is “the most important election in our lifetime”, which is an easy prediction to make. This is the prevailing tagline that every single election we have endured in our lifetime conveyed.
This is an oft-repeated publicity piece meant to drive turnout to the polls, which in and of itself is not such a terrible thing. We want a large and well populated amalgam of voters here in the United States, as this is the only way to ensure that the wild diversity of our nation is well-represented on election day.
What we do need to be concerned about, however, is the sensationalism of such a dire outlook.
And, speaking of dire outlooks, the Democratic Party has been largely stagnant in their 2020 hopes, with four candidates still duking out in the so-called “top tier”, while the rest of the field falters greatly. Given just how important this election is, (yawn), one prominent Democrat just couldn’t let this weak field limp their way into it.
Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, is opening the door to a 2020 Democratic presidential campaign, warning that the current field of candidates is ill equipped to defeat President Donald Trump.
Bloomberg, who initially ruled out a 2020 run, has not made a final decision on whether to jump into the race. If he were to launch a campaign, it could dramatically reshape the Democratic contest less than three months before primary voting begins.
The 77-year-old has spent the past few weeks talking with prominent Democrats about the state of the 2020 field, expressing concerns about the steadiness of former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign and the rise of liberal Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, according to people with knowledge of those discussions. In recent days, he took steps to keep his options open, including moving to get on the primary ballot in Alabama ahead of the state’s Friday filing deadline.
The Bloomberg emergence is not only a sign that the Democrats aren’t ready for prime-time against Donald Trump, but also that there is no clear consensus among liberal constituents about their vision for the future of our nation.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
