IMHO, Biden and Sanders are the two candidates who could not beat Trump.

Why would people vote for a 20th century candidate? They won't.
They'd rather vote for the 19th century candidate, Trump?

:yeah:

Following the polls is, IMO, idiotic. It will only plunge us further to the autocratic, racist right. We need people to lead. Lead, and the fucking polls will follow. MOO

Politico: We talked to experts on aging about the 2020 field. Here’s what they told us.

Trump’s brain is not remaining sharp into his 80s. Substitute Pelosi.
