Bernie's a bit old, but he could do well.
Gabbard is probably the best chance.
If they choose Warren, they're handing the Reps four more years.

She has no real experience. Not running a business, not being a politician. Maybe she is a good person, but I think it would be unwise to hand arguably the most powerful job on the planet to someone who began building their resume 4 months ago. Maybe she can give it a go around in a few election cycles though, after America knows what she is really all about!

Edit: Also she is a socialist.

People still think anyone other than Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, or Elizabeth Warren have the smallest chance at winning the nomination?

Beto, Gillabrand, Klobuchar, and Yang combined have a 0% chance of winning. And please, if the impossible does happen and one of those later four wins, call me out on it later. Because it won't happen.

But if it does, I will change my profile picture to their campaign poster and my quote to their slogan.

I feel for the OP. Must have been a rough week.

Just imagine oscillating between the second and third stages of grief (denial and anger) for years because, well... I'm not sure I want to speculate, not having the knowledge of knowing the OP personally.

But its possible people suffering like him do so because they are fragile and dim. People so weak-minded that they can't come up with a single original thought for themselves. Believe everything they hear on CNN.

Love the facts not in evidence he bases his assumptions on. "beat president pence in 2020" He thinks he's really smart. Kinda like the question, so, do you still beat your wife?

Well, I don't beat my wife, and Pence isn't going to be President in 2020.

Again, presenting his denial of basic facts. There is no plausible way that Pence will be president, unless some leftist (e.g., the OP) do what leftists do and use violence to force their agenda on others.

Unlikely Trump wins. He still has an approval rating of 42%, and disapproval rating of 52%.

That's a more positive outlook than he has in say, 2017, but he's still one of the most disliked presidents in US history.

Only way I see him having a chance is if he runs against Warren, and even then she'd only lose on the simple basis of being female.

Note, I am not saying a woman cannot make a good president. I am saying a woman does not make a strong candidate due to the amount of people that will not vote for someone strictly because they are female.

No, Warren would lose because she's an idiot. There are plenty of people who would vote for the female candidate just because they're female, probably as many as those who would never vote for a female candidate.

really capturing the essence of how people spoke about trump 4 years ago mate

@Joey I was more asking about why AOC should be "cancelled" already, since she's so new. she's too young to even stand for president, so of course she can't stand in this (or even the next) election, that's not the question. also on her being a socialist, she doesn't seem to support abolishing private property (afaik), she seems much more in line with the progressive taxation / social democratic model, so I don't see how any of her positions (aside from maybe abolishing ICE) could put her out of the running.

@OxTheAutist I am sorry if we had a misunderstanding, I guess I am not sure what you mean by 'cancelled'. What I was trying to get at is that we know nothing about her, she has no track record, she hasn't really done anything other than soak up media attention. Hell, check out her "Issues" page on her website(https://ocasio-cortez.house.gov/issues/economy), she hasn't even filled it in, the issues are empty. I thought that is enough to disqualify someone from being President. Otherwise that would similar to asking, "Whats wrong with The Joey [being president]?"

As for the socialism bit. I mean yeah, I am not sure how to respond. From a pragmatic view, I don't think the US would elect a self described socialist yet. Bernie was the strongest self proclaimed socialist candidate ever, with a long and clean track record. If he couldn't even win his parties nomination, how would Cortez? Maybe she could in a few election cycles, but certainly not in the current state of the US. Then from an economic point of view there are huge issues with any form of Socialism.

Buttigieg may well be the Dems best chance. He's charismatic and young, which helped Obama win in '08 - and I'm sure many people will be itching to elect a gay president, potentially outnumbering those who will vote against him because of it.
If Trump dies, resigns or is forced to quit, then I think that Pence would have almost no chance. If Trump goes up against hin, I think, if the economy goes on the same trajectory, the odds are 40-60 in Buttigieg's favour, with no other Dem exceeding 50% chance to win.

For someone who is as educated as aoc, she tends to make herself look like an idiot frequently (not like Trump, but still)

"Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family."


Besides the fact it is clear she does not understand how unemployment works, the fact remains that people with 2 or more jobs remains 7 million in a workforce of 150 million.

People often say, how are you gonna pay for it? And I find the question so puzzling because, how do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent? How do you pay for—you just pay for it.


Whatever your stance on universal health care, dodging the question of how Medicare for All would be paid for with "you just pay for it" is baffling.

And so I do think that right now we have this no-holds-barred, Wild West hyper-capitalism. What that means is profit at any cost. Capitalism has not always existed in the world, and it will not always exist in the world. When this country started, we were not a capitalist [nation], we did not operate on a capitalist economy.


This needs no explanation.

"$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions ‘could not be traced, documented, or explained.’ $21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon. And that’s before our premiums."


The $21 trillion figure refers to a cumulative amount of individual transactions — including some double- and triple-counting — not a single pot of money that was misspent.



"Just last year we gave the military a $700 billion dollar budget increase, which they didn’t even ask for," Ocasio-Cortez said July 26. "They were like, we don’t want another fighter jet! Don’t give us another nuclear bomb. They didn’t even ask for it. And we gave it to them."


Congress gave the military a $61 billion increase from fiscal year 2017 to 2018. The total military budget for 2018 was $700 billion. That includes the Department of Defense and elements of other agencies, chiefly Energy Department programs pertaining to nuclear weapons.

For 2018, that’s more money than President Donald Trump’s budget requested (roughly $668 billion). The 2019 spending level, $716 billion, is exactly what Trump requested.

"As a matter of fact, ICE is the only criminal investigative agency, the only enforcement agency in the United States that has a bed quota. So ICE is required to fill 34,000 beds with detainees every single night and that number has only been increasing since 2009,"


It requires ICE to maintain 34,000 available beds a day, not people.

Lolno.

Arguing that Warren is an idiot is certainly not a way to be taken seriously.

I don't even need to defend her to make this view look silly. She'd be running against Trump, there's no question who the larger idiot between the two is - it's certainly not Warren.

There are some people that would certainly vote for a woman, but you're kidding yourself if you think being a woman is an advantage. Sexism is much more a systemic part of our country than racism is. Almost any black woman will tell you she has been discriminated more in her lifetime on the basis of being a female than she has for being black.

If a white person calls a black person a nigga, or a nigger, it's seen as a major faux pas, and can end their career if they are in a position of power. Meanwhile calling a woman a bitch is much more widely tolerated and considered a trivial offense.

Yes, she does. She annoys me. I want to be her biggest fan but I just want her to go away.

And she will eventually. She'll make some big mistake and the Republicans will fry her. No way she's still a national politician in 10 years.
