Stories like this one published by the Washington Post are surfacing that indicate party leaders (and I would add, donors) are deeply concerned about the prospects of winning in 2020 with the current slate of presidential candidates.
“Party leaders and activists are citing weakness in all of the leading contenders, including former vice president Joe Biden, who has been forced on the defensive about his family’s ethics, performed haltingly in debates and set off alarms with his poor fundraising. They also fret that the two other top-ranking candidates, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), are too liberal to win a general election.”
Their concerns are well-founded, because president Trump, despite the ongoing impeachment-inquiry saga, continues to rake in money in record amounts, in stark contrast to the Democrats; and Warren and Sanders are not just too liberal, but too leftist and radical to win a general election.
As I have written about it on this page, when donors are saying we are not voting for Elizabeth Warren if she is the nominee; and then adding that they would even consider voting for president Trump if she is—that tells you how divided and broken the Democratic party has become.
To make the bankruptcy and demoralization of the party even more evident, some Democrats are encouraging Hillary Clinton to run again!
Do we need more proof that this party has lost both its political and moral compass?
