Who really has a chance against Trump?

Currently as of today, I really don't know.

Bloomberg was a disaster last night and
unless he changes, he might as well just
drop it and give his money to the DNC.

I guess I'd have to say Bernie. He supports
positions I think are insane but he's the
best we have. And that scares me.

But Trump has to go.

1. Any of the candidates EXCEPT Bernie

 

If he ran as D senator, I might not be so cynical.

3. Far from the best. Biden is best qualified, experienced, knowledgable on multiple fronts related

 

to the presidency including foreign policy. And he makes an emotional connection with audiences,
Had a super town hall. A glaring contrast to Trump.

Latino Victory Fund has endorsed him. BFD. Still beats Trump in swing states by more points than
any other candidate. And this is with MSM bashing and ignoring him. He is our best all-around player.

9. But

 

He doesn't know where he is half
the time.

The VP really shouldn't have run. I feel
sorry for Biden more and more.

This is just killing me and my friends.

10. Your first sentence is nonsense.

 

But besides that... Warren, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar are all better options against Trump.

But besides from that, I really don't
know who is going to excite the
American voter.

14. The American voter is already extremely motivated to remove Trump

 

We just have to give them a non-radical candidate to vote for.


The election will be a referendum on Donald Trump - unless we nominate Bernie. Then we'll make it a referendum on socialism, and we lose that fight.


"Generic Democrat" beats Trump, badly. "Socialist" loses to Trump, badly.

11. No on Bernie,

 

I say Biden. Why?
Because he is the total opposite of Trump-Biden is, good versus evil, right versus wrong, Wisdom, knowledge, compassion and caring versus stupidity, ignorance, meanness, and cruelty. No one will take down Trump with accusations of what he has done now and in the past, what will work is reminding people of who we are as a country, what we can achieve together, and how we can continue to lead and move forward. Biden is the whole package.

16. Only two can beat Trump

 

Biden or Bloomberg.

They both can pick up the center and independents, as well as the reluctant 2016 Trump voters.

20. Every candidate has flaws that are easy for Trump and Republicans to exploit.

 

Which of those flaws will turn off the fewest voters?

With Trump willing to cheat and use the power of the office to corrupt the whole election it's hard to be optimistic.

As noted in a previous post above - he checks a lot of boxes!

He is the only one who will inspire the excitement and commitment necessary to defeat Trump. And only he can attract legions of first time voters.

He's as stale as they come. Trying to remake the 21st century world using models from the early 20th century. Flip side of ...Again.
