“But overall, Biden has, in my opinion, the best chance of making Trump a one-term president. He’s not too far to the left that centrist Democrats and even some moderate Republicans (yes, they’re out there and they’re looking for an excuse not to vote for Trump) won’t find him attractive. And he’s liberal enough so that he can get at least a plurality of primary votes. In this very crowded field, if Biden continues to poll around 30 percent, he’ll win the nomination. Like I said earlier, only Bernie can compete with him.”
It was a shameless display of cowardice by people who are driving Democrats so far to the left, they are imperiling the party’s chances of not only defeating Trump in 2020 but of holding the majority in the House, as well.
From the start it was clear that Democrats had set their sights on the House. The field of candidates was diverse and strong, a stark contrast from previous election cycles. And, surprisingly, their messaging was disciplined. They ran on ostensibly two issues: healthcare and legislative oversight on the executive branch.
