Let the Democrat 2020 Three Ring Circus Beging … Dems 2020 Problem: Too Many Candidates, Too few Minority Staffers

AND THE MSM MADE FUN OF THE MANY GOP CANDIDATES IN 2016

As reported at Politico, the Democrats problem in 2020 will be too many presidential candidates and too few minority staffers for those campaigns. Remember in 2016 when the MSM made fun of the multitude of 17 GOP candidates for president? Did anyone bother to take a look at and criticize the all white and old Democrat ones, including Hillary? Of course not. But now ahead of the 2020 elections, the Democrat candidates are slowing showing their intentions, as well as others that are expected to run, and the number could far outweigh the amount of Republican 2016 candidates. How many stages and children’s tables will be needed for a debate? However, veterans of Democrat campaigns also seem to think that if the candidates have few African-Americans or other minorities in its top leadership, they will fail. In an era where President Trump is making inroads with minorities, Democrats will be all in playing the race card and optics.

Potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates in the early stages of assembling campaign staffs are running into an uncomfortable truth: Among the already small pool of capable operatives, there’s an even smaller pool of nonwhite campaign managers and senior advisers.

The shortage could have serious repercussions given the large number of expected candidates and the diverse makeup of the Democratic electorate.The party’s base is increasingly young and diverse, and candidates, especially older ones, need staffers who understand how to stitch together coalitions across racial and economic lines.

The emerging campaigns of some would-be candidates have tried to get a jump on the problem, compiling spreadsheets of potential minority staffers and holding discussions with the candidates about the need to assemble diverse teams. Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown and Kirsten Gillibrand have had African-Americans in senior-level positions in their past campaigns, putting them in position to reactivate them if they run for president.

But interviews with more than a dozen Democratic operatives — including aides to several likely 2020 contenders and veterans of past presidential campaigns — produced a consensus that there simply aren’t enough minority operatives to staff what’s expected to be a sprawling field of candidates.

Veterans of past Democratic campaigns say that a campaign that doesn’t have African-Americans or other minorities in its top leadership is going to hit a wall very quickly.

“Here’s what’s going to happen. If you don’t have any people of color on your national team or if you don’t have them in those early states … you’re going to be hamstrung,” said Jamal Simmons, who has served as an adviser for multiple Democratic presidential campaigns. A candidate campaigning in a largely white state like New Hampshire is likely to be asked about issues that voters in minority-rich states like South Carolina care about, Simmons said, and will have trouble responding if their team isn’t prepared.

Bruce Springsteen Says “I don’t see anyone who can beat Trump”

SPRINGSTEEN SAYS NO ONE CAN BEAT TRUMP IN 2020

As reported at the UK Daily Mail, liberal rocker Bruce Springsteen says, “I don’t see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump.” These are tough words coming from an individual on the far LEFT. In other words, Trump is ‘Tougher than the Rest’ for what they Democrats would put forth in 2020 as the rest of the Democrat candidates will be ‘Dancing in the Dark’ because Donald Trump in 2020 was ‘Born to Run’.

Donald Trump thumbs up

‘I don’t see anyone who can beat Trump:’ Bruce Springsteen believes Trump will win a second term in the White House because the Democrats don’t ‘have an obvious, effective presidential candidate’

The rocker said he believes Trump will get reelected because of division in US
He also said Democrats don’t have an ‘obvious’ candidate who could beat Trump
Singer said Democrats need someone who can ‘speak same language as Trump’
Springsteen, a long time Democrat, said that there are a lot of reasons people ‘became Trump voters’

Bruce Springsteen believes that President Donald Trump will win a second term in the White House.

‘I don’t see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump,’ the rocker told The Sunday Times Magazine.

Springsteen, who is a long-standing Democrat himself, said the political party doesn’t ‘have an obvious, effective presidential candidate’ who can ‘speak the same language’ as Trump.

Stormy Daniels’ Attention seeking Attorney Michael Avenatti in Iowa, Says ‘I’m exploring a run for the presidency of the United States’

YEAH WHATEVER AVENATTI, AND I’M EXPLORING THE LOST CITY OF ATLANTIS, BIG FOOT AND THE LOCH NESS MONSTER …

From the Des Moines Register, porn actress Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti  is in Iowa and says he” is exploring a run for the presidency of the United States.” Isn’t that rich. It’s more like he is exploring ways to keep himself on TV. What’s the matter Michael, have you been out of the media eye for too long a period of time and felt the need for some self-gratification? I thought he was representing Stormy Daniels or down on the border helping illegals? I guess not. Wow, what a formidable opponent Avenatti would be for the Democrat 2020 presidential primaries. Bit unlike the LEFT who look to squelch free speech, we say Run Michael, run!!! We beg you. Both you, Maxine Waters, Al Sharpton and the rest of the island of misfit toys, please run. Remember when the liberal MSM made fun of the 17 qualified GOP candidates who ran in the 2016 presidential primaries? I wonder if they will do the same when the gaggle of unqualified Democrat candidates do the same in 2020?

Michael Avenatti has arrived in Iowa.

After three canceled flights and a 700-mile road trip, the lawyer known for representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her case against Republican President Donald Trump, is ready to put his stake in the ground in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.

“I’m exploring a run for the presidency of the United States, and I wanted to come to Iowa and listen to people and learn about some issues that are facing the citizens of Iowa and do my homework,” Avenatti told the Des Moines Register in an interview Thursday.

Avenatti, who rose to prominence as an outspoken critic of the president, toured the Iowa State Fair Thursday posing for selfies with fans. He is scheduled to speak at the Democratic Wing Ding fundraiser Friday night in Clear Lake.

Democrats Questioning Whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren Can Take on President Trump in 2020 … Win Back the Rust Belt?

CAN POCAHONTAS TAKE ON TRUMP?

From The Hill comes the following as Democrats question whether Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren can really take on President Trump in the 2020 elections. The question is, can a far-LEFT Progressive who calls for the abolitionism of ICE really win back blue-collar Democrats from President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? Can a liberal Democrat elite win or even come close in a southern state? The answer is likely no on both accounts. There lies the problem for the Democrats. The problem is that the Democrat party has gone too far LEFT and is being pushed off the cliff by the likes of self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. Now you have the likes of Warren, a progressive made from the same cloth as a possible challenger to Trump to change the minds of the blue collar Dems in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? Hardly. In fact, Democrats might just lose the “rust belt” forever.

Elizabeth Warren

Can Elizabeth Warren win back blue-collar Democrats from President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania?

It’s a question many Democrats are pondering as Warren — one of the leading contenders for her party’s presidential nomination, if she chooses to run in 2020 — goes back and forth with the president over immigration and other issues.

Warren (D-Mass.) has shown an ability to rally and excite progressives, she’s a proven fundraiser and she has policy bona fides from her work in the Senate.

Yet there are creeping doubts among some Democrats that she’s the best candidate to take on Trump.

Some worry the former Harvard professor will have a tough time winning back the Rust Belt centrists and independents who abandoned Hillary Clinton and Democrats for Trump.

“I just can’t see a blue-collar, Rust Belt guy voting for her,” said one Democratic strategist who has worked on presidential campaigns. “I think the party needs to be realistic about that.”

“I just can’t see a blue-collar, Rust Belt guy voting for her,” said one Democratic strategist who has worked on presidential campaigns. “I think the party needs to be realistic about that.”

Some Democrats almost certainly remain shellshocked from the last election after Trump’s surprise win. He became the first Republican to win the states of Pennsylvania and Michigan in a presidential election since 1988 and the first Republican to win Wisconsin since President Reagan in 1984.

If Democrats don’t retake those states in 2020, their chances of winning the Electoral College will fall.

Could It Be Possible … Is Hillary Clinton Planning to Run in 2020?

COULD IT REALLY BE POSSIBLE, IS HILLARY CLINTON GOING TO RUN YET AGAIN?

In an OPED by Michael Goodwin of the New York Post, he speculates that Hillary Clinton, could yet be running again one more time in 2020. Personally, I doubt it but I would certainly be in favor of it. The more the merrier in the Democrat Presidential primary food fight. There really is no leader of the Democrat party, the so-called front runners Jone Biden and Bernie Sanders are dinosaurs. Who are Hillary’s competition, Sen. Kamala Harris in California, Sen. Cory Booker in New Jersey and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York? Really? It is yet another disastrous situation left from the Obama years, the Democrats have no bench.

Hillary Clinton lost the race in 2016 no one thought she could ever lose. She has all but never accepted her loss to Trump and has blamed everyone but herself. Could she be that delusional to run one more time. Oprah appears to be out. Is it really possible that Democrats have no one else but Hillary Clinton to run again?

Hillary Clinton3

The messages convey a sense of urgency, and are coming with increasing frequency. They are short, focused reactions to the latest “outrage” committed by President Trump.

Some end by asking for money, some urge participation in protests. All read as if they are sent from the official headquarters of the resistance.

Hillary Clinton is up to something.

Five times in the last month alone, she sent emails touting her super PAC’s role in combating President Trump. Most seized on headline events, such as the family separation issue at the southern border.

Under the message line, “horrific,” she wrote June 18: “This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.” She said she warned about Trump’s immigration policies during the 2016 campaign.

Three days later, she was back again, saying that her group, Onward Together, raised $1 million and would split it among organizations working to change border policy, including the American Civil Liberties Union and a gaggle of immigrant, refugee, Latino and women’s groups.

[...]

Here’s how I believe she sees the playing field, and why she can’t be ignored.

First, because there’s no clear front-runner for the nomination 18 months into Trump’s presidency, Clinton remains the closest thing to an incumbent. She’s also got numerous advantages, from name recognition to campaign experience to an off-the-shelf cabinet, that could give her a head start.

Second, a crowded, diverse field diminishes the chances of anyone knocking her off. Recall how Trump outlasted 16 GOP rivals by having a committed core of supporters that grew as the field shrank. Clinton could be in a similar position — unpopular among many, but also unbeatable by a single opponent.

Third, looking ahead to the 2020 primaries, she sees no reason to fear the favorite daughters and sons in key blue states. She would almost certainly beat Sen. Kamala Harris in California, Sen. Cory Booker in New Jersey and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York.

And please — forget Sanders and Joe Biden. Sanders is already 76 and Biden, at 75, has never been a viable candidate for president and still isn’t.

Fourth, money is not an issue. Some donors will resist Clinton at first, but any Dem nominee can count on all the money in the world to run against Trump.
