Sanders Likely to Face Donald Trump in 2020 Election

The 2020 presidential election is Senator Bernie Sanders’ race to lose, according to a new survey of more than a dozen top Democratic strategists.

The survey, conducted by the Hill, reveals a Democratic field crowded with old faces. At a time when the party could use some fresh blood, most contenders for commander-in-chief have been around for decades. Sanders, who will be 79 years old in 2020, currently leads the pack.

“His people have never gone away,” Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told The Hill. “And he has a loyal core following out there that will be with him come hell or high water.” Sanders is the most popular politician in America, with an approval rating of 75 percent, according to a recent Harvard-Harris poll.

22. He did not release any FULL returns. Both he and Trump had summaries released-

 

Likely to confuse people that one years partial return is something actually useful or equivent to normal expectations.

Nope, neither of the two released ANY of their full returns and that's another erosion of norms that is quite troublesome. That's going to be a ballot requirement, for sure.

I recently submitted an application to a foundation to get a needed medication for an "off-label" use, meaning it is not one recognized by insurers. A required part of that application was a copy of my 2016 tax return. Not a summary. And I won the grant. Had I included a summary rather than the real thing, I'm sure that my application would now be occupying the circular file.

What matters to MOST voters is their own personal taxes. What Sanders paid or what he published matters little to me unless Sanders was involved in outright tax fraud, and there is no evidence of that.

At the end of day I will support that candidate who will help further progressive issues and who can win the election.

69. I never said anyone was one hundred percent transparent.

 

And don't get what that has to do with anything you are replying to. We are talking about possible Presidents releasing their full tax returns. No small item. Those who don't are clearly hiding things.

"An impossible standard"

I never outlined such a standard. It's extremely clear you have no argument in this area and are just throwing anything out there.

I have yet to meet a single person who thinks it is acceptable for a Presidential candidate to not release full tax returns going back years. You are laughable acting as if it is a high standard that no one can meet, yet they regularly do.

"Who is 100% transparent? An impossible standard."

Out of those running in the last election, who of the twenty some people were less transparent than Sanders? Yet you attempt to make some absurd claim that someone set the bar at 100% transparent. That is a brilliant retort.

to criticize DT for not releasing his.

And we KNOW that DT is corrupt and that's why he refused to release them.

26. Agreed. 2018 is what we should focus on.

Who knows who will run in 2020? To me, by far the most important thing about whoever we run in 2020 is that that person beats Trump. If it's Sanders, and he beats Trump, that's great. If it's someone else who beats Trump, that's great too.

But that's down the road. Right now what we need to do is pick up seats in 2018, and not start fighting about the 2020 primaries.

Democrats should never allow him to run for the parties nomination again period. Only way he runs for President again is as a 3rd party candidate. Of his 75% approval rating how many of those are just republicans who see Sanders as a wedge figure to use against Democrats? There is a reason Trump pretended to be Bernie's best friend.

He's just the guy who came closest to the last nomination without winning it. He won't run third party for the same reason he didn't in 2016. The same article in 2005 would have tapped Hillary, in 2001 would have tapped somebody other than Kerry...

Let's talk about 2018 first. Stop excessive focus on the top of the ticket, especially this far out (it's important, but not all-important, as the gerrymandered Congress and R-controlled state houses should tell us all).

If Sanders makes it to the general election with a (D) by his name, he has my vote. Ditto for Biden, Harris, Warren, Gillibrand... the list goes on. Doesn't matter today who among them would be my first choice; I'll figure that out once we see who runs and when primary season is upon us. I have my favorites, you probably do too, but we have a lot more important things to do now than this.

50. I completely agree. I will vote for the Candidate with the 'D' next to his name.

I just don't think Sen. Sanders will win a Democratic primary in 20.

45. Too old & I like him. This is probably a Russian or Repub

Fake news. They would love for us to fall for this.
I guess Mugabe was 93, but his wife really ran things, like Nancy and Ronald at the end...though Reagan had reasonably competent people in many places.

49. Sen. Sanders will not be the Democratic nominee.

And those who think he will be should prepare for disappointment so we don't have divisions...many great Democrats out there. We will run a great nominee...someone new.

51. Bernie is popular. We are foolish to dismiss him out of hand.

And his message resonates with young people.

57. I dispute...that. I run in very progressive circles and we are preparing for 18.

We are Democrats who generally get out the vote and help raise money...he is no longer that popular even among those who were super supporters before. He has made statements about the Democratic Party that have brought his numbers down with those who vote in primaries...oh sure the Right wing types love him (but would cut off their fingers before voting for him) and the Our Revolution (Democratic party haters) love him. But that won't be enough to win a primary. None of the candidates he backed (Mello, Perriello and Quist) won so I don't see evidence that his message is really taking hold . He is valuable in the Senate....and with Vermont having a GOP governor, Sanders would be replaced with a righty should he resign from the Senate...that can't happen...so this is another reason, he should not run.

54. The caption says "Bernie Sanders (left) and Donald Trump were the winners Tuesday in New Hampshire."

And there's a link to an event in Ghana in 2016.

It appears it was edited and updated, but still was written right after the 2016 New Hampshire primary.

65. This is true...I don't understand why some are desperate to prove Sen. Sanders is the most popular

and will run in 20...He isn't that popular in my opinion with Democratic primary voters, and what makes them think he will win a Democratic primary (assuming he is allowed to run)?

fresh new people are needed and I hope they step up...the DEMOCRATIC PARTY must field and create a new image that progressives and liberals can take hold of an defeat the repthugliKKKan hate machine. The wing leader, an Independent, not DEMOCRAT, who people are touting as the candidate to face trump in 20, is NOT the person to lead this Party. I won't be here, so if you of this minor wing who live in a world of fantasy and illusion, field this minor leader of a minor wing of our DEMOCRATIC, not Independent, Party, so be it and let the destruction of our country/democracy continue. I'm in the 25% not impressed with this minor leader of a minor wing of MY PARTY.

64. That's mighty optimistic.

Republicans have wheezed along for the better part of this decade on gerrymandering and election theft, and each success is shadier than the last. They have to secure near total-control of every districting legislative body in the country by 2020 so that they can gerrymander the country again, or they're forever gone.

I don't think there is going to be an election in 2020. I won't be entirely surprised if neither Trump nor Sanders are around to not run in that non-election.

This post is so negative I can't be sure if all of my double negatives cancel themselves out. But seriously, if any single one of you looked at this fanciful headline and thought for a minute that it could happen, you're bound to be disappointed by what happens instead. I don't think that Democrats can afford wishful thinking at this point.

If Hillary Clinton couldn't beat Donald Trump, the guy who couldn't beat her in the primaries would be toast. Trump would eat him alive by August.

81. Oh NO The fake Poll again! Stop marketing us to death

with these cheap marketing tips.

The Harris Online Poll BS is pt of Mark Penn's marketing pitch-with Bernie has signed up with them or they are pitching their services.

It's a liars poll and Sanders should denounce it.

...here, I know, but my prediction is:

Donald Trump won't be the 2020 Republican candidate.

Bernie Sanders won't be the 2020 Democratic candidate.
