“In 2020, the Democratic party is facing a president with a record setting economy, complete and total exoneration from the Mueller report, and he’s got a nimble and well-organized reelection campaign and that’s paired with a fully integrated Republican Party apparatus,” said a Trump insider. Trump believes that his turnaround, and the threat he poses to foes in states he is welcomed in, have scared off challengers to his Senate supporters. Some of those who have decided against running are major Democratic Party stars, leaving the Oval Office giddy with their rejection of a Senate run.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee expects the trend to continue as wary Democrats reject wooing from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “Schumer’s struggle to land his most sought-after recruits is a good indication of difficult it will be for Democrats to mount successful campaigns against our well-funded, battle-tested Republican incumbents,” said NRSC’s Jesse Hunt.
“He is the turnout factor and the turnout driver in 2020. And if people thought he was vulnerable, then Democratic candidates would be getting on the coattails of their 2020 presidential candidate and coast into office. And we just aren’t seeing this across the states,” added the insider. McLaughlin agreed and said the Democratic presidential candidates are not inspiring others to run down-ticket. “Although I don’t get invited to the Democratic candidate recruitment meetings, it seems that the dynamics of the anti-Trump derangement derby for president is discouraging down-ticket Democrats.
What moderate Democrat wants to run with socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, or Sen. Kamala Harris? Many Democrats know that Joe Biden is much weaker than he looks and is probably not going to win the nomination. In contrast, since the State of the Union address, the president has been increasing his job approval ratings — particularly on the economy and security,” he said.
The House more closely resembles a Kindergarten play ground than a legislative body.

I've said it here before and I will say it again. Bernie is the only guy crazy enough to debate Trump and potentially gain support.
Tulsi would give Trump the greatest challenge in a debate.
