Still undecided

I'm still undecided in a crowded field. I live in Tennessee so, my vote is typically a protest vote. Outside of Nashville, the state is regressing. I've worked campaigns for 20 years and always been active. To be honest, I'm probably in the mold of a Warren or Sanders but I like Harris, Beto, Booker, Bullock- even Steyer. Let me say this- the Democratic nominee will get more votes than TRUMP. Period. So, when I look at head to head polls I take them with a grain of salt. How do we get to 270. That is the question. I think we have some canidates that can absolutely win Florida, Ohio and a couple that can put Texas in play. I think our nominee will win the states Clinton won. Who is best suited to win a few more. I think if we win Florida- the election is over. I actually think some of our lower tier canidates are as capable as some of our front runners at that. Enough rambling. I just hope we pick a nominee that is appealing in some key states because all of them will get more votes...

1. I'm looking at Beto and wondering if he can pull enough latino votes to swing Texas...

 

He's really good. I have been impressed with him because of his demeanor at El Paso. I think he can be inspiring, but I want him as VP candidate. I want a woman at the head of the ticket and think Kamala can do it...

2. I think it's good to be undecided, saves wear and tear

 

on the psyche if a favored candidate doesn't make it to the end. Locally, I'm in the same situation in a blood-red district in Georgia.

Fwiw, I find reading about the candidates themselves, digging deep in the web for old nuggets of info and insights, who they are as people, their records and their ideologies, is very useful for ranking, or just plain weeding in some cases. I notice you lump Sanders and Warren together because of issues probably, but I think you'll find they are so very different as people and ideologically that you'll end up favoring one over the other.

3. Welcome to the forum

 

Been playing around a bit with this lately. 538.com has statewide polling.

https://electoralvotemap.com/

Not sure Dems can win Florida this cycle. Trump and Scott in 2016, then DeSantis in 2018 disavowed me of the notion. Similarly Wisconsin and Iowa. Arizona is likelier blue than Texas in 2020 (I live in Texas).

I think the battlegrounds are Michigan and Pennsylvania, so if the Blues can win those two plus NH and one in Omaha, NE, that's 279 EV.

The only state I really cannot predict is NC.

That seems like the path at this very early stage.
