Beto in the Lead? Poll Says Far-Left Voters Want O’Rourke to Run

A straw poll of MoveOn.org members – a coalition of far-left democratic socialists who think the Democratic Party establishment is far too right-wing for their tastes – shows that Bernie Sanders no longer has the magic hold over the young leftist voting base. With 2016 well in the rearview mirror, the poll found that 15.6% of respondents wanted to see failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke to be the Democratic nominee for 2020. Surprisingly, Joe Biden came in second with 14.9% of the vote and Sanders didn’t turn up until third place, bringing along 13.1% of support.

It should probably be noted that the clear first-place winner was “None of the Above,” as it has been for wider, more scientific Democrat Party nominee polls. 29% of MoveOn.org members said they did not yet know who they wanted as the 2020 nominee.

MoveOn’s executive director, Ilya Sheyman, commented on the poll results.

“While the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president remains wide open and MoveOn’s endorsement is up for grabs, MoveOn members and progressives across the country are clear: They’re looking for candidates who will rally voters around a progressive vision of building a country where every American can thrive — whether we’re white, black, or brown, rich or poor,” said Sheyman.

Experience not necessary. Obviously.

In a feature on Beto’s 2020 plans – which include having met with Elizabeth Warren and Al Sharpton, of all people – the New York Times noted that the Texan did not come without his downsides.

“Mr. O’Rourke would surely have vulnerabilities in a primary, including an absence of signature policy feats or a centerpiece issue to date,” wrote the Times. “In his Senate race, he was often disinclined to go negative, frustrating some Democrats who believe he wasted a chance to defeat Mr. Cruz, and he struggled at times in some traditional formats like televised debates. He is, by admission and design, not the political brawler some Democrats might crave against a president they loathe. And his candidacy would not be history-making like Mr. Obama’s nor many of his likely peers’ in the field, in an election when many activists may want a female or nonwhite nominee.”

Hmm, let’s see. He has no accomplishments, he has no signature issues on which to run, he’s bad at debating, he’s afraid to get in there and mix it up with his opponents, and he’s not a minority. The Times fails to mention Downside #1: The oft-forgotten fact that he just LOST to a guy that Donald Trump crushed on the national stage.

By all means, Democrats, go for it. Nominate Beto O’Rourke for president.

We still have a lot of MAGAing to do, after all, and a race against this guy won’t distract Trump much from the job at hand.

  1. He is already a loser…so does he run with Hillary? He is a DUI crime scene runner who’s dad, the judge, got him off! That’s a good Democrat! Wow, the party of trash keeps coming up with more of it! Why not get Joy and Whoopi to run..they are losers!

    • Billionaire father-in-law doesn’t hurt a totally unqualified loser. When indoctrinated millennials with their dumbed down knowledge absorb anything that sounds good but has been proven to be bad, America will suffer. It is time that all Americans who have not had the guts to vote in the past, get off their arses and vote in 2020. Those who don’t vote are the first to complain about the Democrat policies. So, if you are one of them, get off your butt and vote these vermin out.

  2. Let’s hope the 2020 does not come down to another campaign of “who would you rather have a beer with, candidate X or candidate Y”. That is no way to decide who to vote for especially the President of the United States of America.

    And as far as I can tell that would be the only reason for anyone to vote for this pretty boy.

    On the other hand if the 2020 election is about free stuff then we have not learned from our mistake under the obama administration.
    *
    We have a President who is fighting for the Country, fighting for the American citizens, no one should be fooled into believing any of the lies spewed by the progressive socialist democrats and their mouth pieces call the fake news media.

    Yes, President Trump has made some incendiary comments, but we as AMERICANS must remember those comments were not aimed at America or American citizens they were aimed at foreigners and foreign nations. Do not allow yourself to be fooled into translating those comments as if they were aimed at you an American citizen or at America itself, they weren’t.

    As far as being a nationalist remember a NATIONALIST is only a person who loves their country is PATRIOTIC towards their country and being a PATRIOTIC NATIONALIST does not exclude any race, gender, color or other issue that the progressive socialist democrats attempts to fool you into believing President Trump is excluding.

  3. I can’t stand this guy. His first debate with Cruz should have told everybody what they needed to know… He’s funded with out of state money (why is that?), he’s allowed eminent domain for his father-in-law, he’s a hit and run kind of guy. How he got elected in the first place is beyond me. He was a shot to the heart of Texas, and if there wasn’t so much fraudulent voting in Texas, Cruz would have smoked him. Seems like Texas is in the cross hairs of many socialists and democrats who want this state blue. LEAVE US ALONE AND RED.

    • Well if your municipal politicians were not so greedy for outside money they would not have allowed the invasion of Communist business owners from CaliMexifornia to have set up shop simply refused to have issued them a business license.

  4. I laugh when I here the catchy name Beto . Kinda has that “ Obama “ ring to it . Kinda like “ sieg Heil “ . Great syllables for the ranting , chanting left . Just lacking substance . Let the bony little fake Latino on his skateboard run . Trump will trounce his miserable ass .

  5. TRUMP is an incompetent criminal , not Hillary ! Remember- Hillary Clinton was infinitely better qualified to be president and she has more intelligence in one of her brain cells than a million Trumps would have combined . She won the popular vote by three million but the criminal Republican party stole the section from her through blatant collusion with Russia. , blatant suppression of minority votes , gerrymandering and Trump”s countless vicious and inflammatory lies !

    • U R living under a rock, that bitch Clinton is a communist among lots of other things such as treason, murder, I could go on and on but u would not and could understand, get educated, and the 3 million votes were illegals voting that why u Democrats want open borders, that’s the only way Democrats can win anything.

  6. Biden, Warren, Harris, O’Rourke would all lose against Donald, but Donald will definitely lose if he does not take far more interest in having criminal federal judges and the LSM and Social media charged for slander and treason.

  7. My point being fraudulent votes need to be eliminated if the results of the Midterm elections is any indication of that, tragically the fraud was never properly investigated.

  8. Trump needs to have the treasonous federal judges and LSM media and Social media charged with treason or his chance of being reelected POTUS is as likely as many Republicans running for the House was, again shady election results and how they came by votes for the Democrats why Donald did not demand an investigation for every Republican who lost is beyond me.

  9. Of the three incompetents it doesn’t matter they will play Nero to America along with their henchmen. Down with this band of Violin Players

  10. Let’s see what is Beto’s plarform;
    1. No borders for the US
    2. No laws, police, sheriffs, no border patrol, no city, county, state, or federal attorneys.
    3. He will make all necessary laws.
    4. He will personally get a cut of all profits made by his supporters, the Mexican cartels.
    5. He will confiscate all business profits.
    6. All school teachers will work for him to spread his socialist propaganda to the children.
    7. He and his socialist government will own anything of value, i.e. land, homes, businesses, etc.
    Sound familiar, he wants us to be another Venezuala.

  11. DITO FOR THE PREVIOUS COMMENTER. This man does not know God for if he did he would not be supporting abortion calling it women’s health because abortion is neither healthful for women and may even prevent them from having children later on in life. He is acting on such things for convenience to get himself elected. We know that these in the Democrat Party have left the Lord to obtain power in this World and will pay the price in the next.

  12. Far means violent and left means communist. They need a candidate and Charlie Manson is dead so…he gets picked. Social Security and Medicare for all including illegal immigrants? Why stop there? Why not give them to everyone in Central America who wants them? Save them the arduous and dangerous trip.
