While it was fairly obvious that the Democratic Party has found themselves between a rock and a hard place for the coming 2020 election, I don’t believe too many of us would have believed that the situation was this dire.
For starters, there truly are still too many candidates vying for the nomination. Andrew Yang, for instance, has no place in the field anymore. Deval Patrick’s candidacy was over before it began, even though it’s still technically moving forward. Michael Bloomberg’s $35 million advertising buy only managed to net him about 4% in the polls.
Still, they all remain invested in the idea that they can tear down the frontrunners and that this will somehow strengthen the party in order to beat Trump in 2020.
They may have to rethink that belief, however, after a new poll reveals that their primary woes are far, far worse than imagined.
She’s not running for president — yet — but Hillary Clinton was the top choice for Democratic voters in the Harvard-Harris national poll released last week.
Mrs. Clinton drew 21%, followed by former Vice President Joseph R. Biden with 20%, when registered Democrats were asked whom they would support for the 2020 party presidential nod if she and former Secretary of State John Kerry were added to the mix.
Placing third in the hypothetical race was Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders at 12%, followed by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 9% and ex-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 7%.
Young Democratic voters tend to despise Clinton, however, after her blatant rigging of the 2016 primary race was exposed by the work of Wikileaks. Her entry into the race, at any point and under any circumstances, would likely alienate that key voter demographic and create yet another uphill battle for the White House come next November.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
