Based on what I've seen thus far and on the polling, I think the nomination race is down to 2 candidates - Biden and Warren. Harris' spike in the polls after attacking Biden has already evaporated (probably because it was a shallow attack to begin with) and Bernie has a reasonably high floor but also a pretty low ceiling. Nobody else has really broken through. If Bernie were to drop out soon, Warren might have a shot. But absent that happening, Biden will benefit the same way Trump did in 2016 - by failure of the anti-Biden people to coalesce behind one candidate.

I would handicap this right now at Biden 80, Warren 15, and the field 5.

Biden vs Trump would be fun. Biden wouldn't completely screw up country either.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

I actually think it would be the most boring of any potential match-up. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, but that would be a bit of a snooze fest.

I think Biden is well past his prime and he looks to me like he just doesn't have the passion or energy to be President.

I want to see Trump vs. Harris, but I unfortunately think Harris is toast. Trump vs. Warren would be fun.

No, but he would partially screw it up, but Biden is the lesser of all the Democrat evils that are running.
Not so sure I agree with the last part of that statement. Tulsi Gabbard and John Delaney both intrigue me. I also have a positive first impression of Montana's governor.

I'm keeping true to my prediction of the past 12+months that Elizabeth Warren will be the eventual nominee.

Seems that not only is Biden a gaffe-o-matic, but I don't think he really wants all that badly to be President. He is tanking in recent polls, which, I'm perfectly happy with someone other than him getting the nomination because Trump should easily beat just about anybody else.

If Trump makes it to election day - he will most assuredly win. Why? Because once again - and with the last four years to improve upon technique - Vladimir Putin’s cyber “election interference campaign 2.0” will force a Trump victory. It does not matter who the democratic opponent is.

It also does not matter whether one of Trump’s republican primary challengers becomes a third party candidate. It makes no difference if Trump has escalated his obvious symptoms of mental illness to even more outlandish sights and sounds. Howling at the moon. Running naked through a public fountain. Nor would it matter at all whether the US House had voted to impeach him. In fact it wouldn’t matter if another school was the sight of a pre-election American-style lethal mass shooting, or several main US bridges had finally collapsed due to infrastructure neglect, or another Flint water crisis happened in a wealthy white suburb in a southern or midwestern state. It wouldn’t even make a difference if we nosedived into a recession. Or if Trump painted Air Force One and all his imagined Space Force fleet in the same color scheme as his Trump private plane.

No matter what - Putin will win.

And once again The United States of America will sink lower into - white supremacy, presidential lies and lawlessness, racial and religious and ethnic divisions, a wider wealth gap, the continued abandonment of safety and environmental protection regulations, no affordable and effective health care for all, and remain the butt of jokes among leadership of all other countries. Especially our NATO brothers and sisters.

The only thing that could produce an election loss for Trump is -China - using superior cyber warfare election interference techniques to screw up Putin’s interference - and help elect someone else.
