Democrats’ Top Choice for 2020? “None of the Above”

With the 2020 presidential season soon to be underway, Democrats apparently have a rather significant problem on their hands. Their crew of potential candidates has yet to connect with the party’s base, meaning that it will be a long uphill climb for whichever White House hopeful wants to secure the nomination…and especially to defeat Donald Trump in the general election. While the Republican base has rallied around Trump in a way that hasn’t been seen since the days of Ronald Reagan, the Democrats are lacking that one big star who might actually have a shot at victory.

According to a poll run by American Barometer and The Hill, party loyalists cannot even choose among the candidates expected to run. In fact, when presented with a list of them, more voters chose “none of the above” than any other candidate!

From The Hill:

Thirty percent of the sample said they would prefer that “none of the above” become the Democratic nominee when asked to choose among former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D), California Sen. Kamala Harris (D), former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Twenty-five percent of respondents said Biden would be their preferred nominee. Sanders, who ran in the Democratic presidential primary in 2016, came in second with 18 percent.

Twelve percent of the independents and Democrats surveyed picked Clinton, Sanders’s one-time presidential rival, who signaled a willingness to run again, saying in an October interviewer that she would still “like to be president.”

Ooosh, that stings.

We continue to believe that Hillary is going to make another run for it, as ill-advised as that may be. The reason is two-fold. One, there really is no one else to take the fight to Trump. Biden is at the top in this poll (well, second after “none”) because he’s the one people have actually heard of. Meanwhile, as Rush Limbaugh said, he can’t “fill a phone booth” at his rallies. He thinks he’s got a shot at beating Trump? Um, no. Sanders is a non-starter, too. He’s popular with the one demographic guaranteed not to vote: College-aged liberals. That leaves Hillary as the only viable candidate with a shred of name-recognition.

Mark our words, she’s going to try again.

Only because “none of the above” can’t actually get a spot on the ballot.

  1. Just a couple of questions. Has Bernie’s wife been put in jail yet? Has there even been a trial? Secondly, has Bernie moved into the fourth house he owns yet? Seems to me for someone who doesn’t seem to have a job other than running for political office he sure has a bunch of money!

      • Those on her staff who went against her will mysteriously died or disappeared, truly cognizant patriots wish to believe that there is no way Trump lose in 2020 do not be so complacent how many more twisted minded children will be of voting age by then and unlike the past 30 years leading up to the 2016 election where most people between the age of 18 and 25 did not vote in major elections that is no longer the case not to mention all of the election corruption.

  2. The DemocRATS are leaderless. They have zero people that have positive ideas on how to lead this country. They are all far left socialist, communists and we do not want that type of government. Not one has succeeded and the only one is a small northern European country that now is in trouble because of allowing some immigrants that do not contribute to the society. The DemocrRATS want free this and free that but nothing is free if the person receiving free things does not contribute in some way then the system will fail. California is on the brink of disaster because of the stupid people electing incompetent liars and clueless on how to fix anything. There solution raise taxes, more regulations and open borders a disaster.

  3. In 2020 the democrats will run either Bernie Sanders and Liz Warren or beto O’rouqe (sp) and Camelia Harris, this gives them a party plan of liberal/socialist or a Spanish speaking socialist with black female and have no doubt that Clinton AND Obama will be the puppeteers.
    BUT the kicker is, Trump will win re-election!

  4. Well, this becomes a bit scary, because they have 2 years to come up with some one-okay, not quite two years-but they just might come up with a newcomer who will connect with the people who are ignorant of the shenanigans and criminal behavior of Clinton and Company, and do not realize that Uncle Joe is nothing more than a lecherous old man, who milked the grieving father thing for all it was worth. And if Clinton stays quiet-not likely, but could happen,-and Obama can be given some shiny object to distract him so he does not speak, they may just have a viable candidate. Certainly not those mentioned, but I suspect there are more Dems out there who are hungry for the power than just those mentioned.

  5. SANDERS? The man loved Fidel Caastro. He went to Russia on his honeymoon. He wants anyone who worked hard, saved it for retirement and he wants to take YOUR $$$$$$ and give it to muslims, illegals and deadbeats. But guess what? He doesn’t want his touched. Oh yha, he wrote a book on jerking off when he was a young man. Dats Right.

  6. Hillary MUST stay in the lime-light… because as soon as she is in the background she knows the Republicans will go after her and she likely will end up in prison. While she’s at the forefront of the news no one will dare attack her character since that would be looked at as pure political animosity. But she has to be locked up!

    • You are spot-on James Green, however I, for one, couldn’t care less about being accused of political animosity. The left has been spewing hatred and division for years and have now come to the point where they openly call for violence against anyone who disagrees with them. Time to take off the kid gloves and stop playing nice.. sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.

    • If you think there’s anything communist about California you are a clueless ignoramus who doesn’t even know what communism is . Just because they have a liberal,progressive governor and there are a lot of liberals there does not make this state “communist “.
      Remember- liberals are not communists and communists are not liberals .
      The only people in America who get “free stuff ” are those who are already rich and the big corporations ! Because of the criminal Republican party , there are millions of Americans who are out of work through no fault of their own, and millions who are woking but struggling to get by . The GOP has caused wages in America to stagnate for years while allowing the cost of living to increase steadily . This has been absolutely disastrous for America, and that traitorous bastard and con man is only going to make things far worse !

  7. Well we had “Opie (Oprah), “ Dopie” (Obama), “Jumpin- Joe” (Biden), and the “wicked witch” (Bill gave ‘Heary’ her broom back so she could fly overseas and bash the GOP publicly to help the Dems. That didn’t do much. So, you got Avanati the pimp slayer, Ocasio-Cortez (who will fix America quicker than Obama went from senator to President, Kamala ‘nobody “ Harris who has inside dirt on everybody, the clown running for Senator in Texas, and of course,” Pokiehontas”. What a bag of real front runners. Oh yea, oops I left out the thieves, wife beaters, and other really desirables.

  8. Unless the demoncrats buy & manipulate all our US Elections

    as they’ve actually done in Arizona and still trying to do in Florida, Georgia and in every US State

    they they can in every US Election, because they know they can’t win with actually

    TRUMPing promise keeping, tell the truth persuadings

    because the demoncrats have to believe that it’s human right to rule over US public

    and to replace Us US public voters anytime WE believe our need to rid any/all politicians that

    refuse to let the corrupt hateful neverTRUMP politicians rule the way they want

    and WE US voting public need to either more disciplined OR to be done a way with

    and this is the TRUMPing Truth!!!
