According to top Democratic strategists, Sanders is leading the pack of 2020's Democratic candidates.


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.

Went to one of his events before with my youngest, and he had more energy and drive than 99% of politicians. Despite his age, he manages to interest and energize his supporters.

Would be interesting to see him run in 2020

He will be 80.
84 after his first term.

So the dems will need to find some younger blood.

Besides, if you think trump has trouble getting things done, wait till you see the resistance to bernie.

Hopefully he doesn't get railroaded this time.

He gives me a sort of "I just don't see it" vibe. Get him a haircut(
) and he'd be viable but.....

If that's a pervasive enough feeling he can't win. It would be interesting though. Cripes did I just say Trump gets reelected?


ETA: Sort of like our NDP.

No doubt, just found their assessment interesting.

I will most likely be casting another Trump vote, provided he decides to run again

He'd be running against Mike Pence. Trump is going to be impeached.

LOL


I think the only real barrier will be his age, although mostly because after so many years of service I think he deserves his retirement

I'm 66...... I couldn't imagine the stress a President would endure. I'm the same age as George Bush junior.

Who knows what a Democrat is these days.

The last "Democrat" on the presidential ticket was anti gay as of a few years ago, has Bush style foreign policy (pro war), and is in bed with Wall Street.

So what exactly is a Democrat now?

Biden would be on OK pick, always respected him and PBO at least.

His "shotguns are all you need speech" hurt his credibility, IMO. He'd still be a good pick. Unsure about Booker, not familiar with him.

Depends if you ask the purist progressives or classical liberals


I can answer for the latter, and don't have a lot of respect for the former. The purity tests and side-issues the former gets hung up on will ensure GOP dominance in government for another generation. The classical liberals/libertarian types would stand a good chance of building a strong & broad base, as they appeal to moderates across the board and would likely lead us into never before seen era of personal freedom and responsibility.

The purity control standards progressives are trying to impose on the party is killing it from the inside out. It is a major reason I left the party last Summer.

Bernies popularity and with a charismatic pretty boy as VP and the GOP has some problems. No wall, no indictment for crooked Hillary and the swamp still filled with lobbyist. uh oh...

Platforms mean nothing....it's all marketing and hype in American politics now.

Last I checked Democrats were supposed to support individual rights and freedoms, as well as promote personal/social responsibility and respect.

That does not accurately represent the party as of the 2016 election. We will see if they are able to act quickly enough to save it.
