Poll: Biden is top Dem in 2020 matchup with Trump

Former Vice President Joe Biden fares best among Democrats in a hypothetical matchup against President Trump in 2020, according to a survey from the liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling out Tuesday.

Biden edges Trump by 14 points in a head-to-head race, 54 percent to 40 percent, but he's far from being the only Democrat with an edge on the president heading into the next election.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also fared strongly against Trump in the poll, leading him 52 percent to 39 percent.

Three other Democratic lawmakers in the poll also led Trump: Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Al Franken (Minn.) and Cory Booker (N.J.). Warren led Trump 49 percent to 39 percent, while Franken scored 46 percent versus 38 percent for Trump. Booker, a freshman senator, scored 46 percent support versus 39 percent for Trump.

Trump won't be running in 2020. His feeble mind will be completely gone. If he does run he won't get to second base in the primaries.

Harris would be my choice as well.

At this point though I'm an Anyone But Bernie guy. The Bros will attempt to sabotage anyone but one of their own, and will scream about anyone but their lord and saviour getting the nod, so they should be told to sod off now and avoid the rush. They have done way too much damage as it is, and all they will do is tear the Democratic Party apart. They aren't worth it.

Business Insider
Trump's first confirmed 2020 Democratic challenger is tied with him in a new poll ...

The poll, released by left-leaning Public Policy Polling on Wednesday, showed Trump with 38% support, tied with Rep. John Delaney, a three-term congressman from Maryland who has announced his intention to run for president in 2020. Twenty-four percent of respondents said they were unsure whom they would vote for in such a matchup. ...

Three years out, the poll isn't particularly predictive of 2020: Delaney is by any standard a long-shot candidate who will likely face a packed Democratic primary field of more recognizable Democratic challengers. ...

Still, the willingness of survey respondents to support a candidate that many likely did not know shows the depth of animosity toward Trump, as well as the willingness by many voters to support any candidate who is not the president.

Delaney is an interesting first candidate to announce any 2020 plans — he's a millionaire pro-business, tough-on-crime former banker who has campaigned on reforming entitlements and raising capital gains taxes. He says he craves bipartisanship compromise, even at the expense of achieving progressive goals.
He makes a good point here. The party needs to get out ahead of this stuff:
"I think we're having entirely the wrong conversation," Delaney told Business Insider in an interview earlier this month. "If you go outside federal politics and outside the beltway, if you will, and talk to people about what's really going on in the world about how technology, automation, and global connections are fundamentally changing work, jobs, risk, resources allocation, etc. There's almost no conversation about that at the federal government."

I feel the same way, and guilty that it sounds age-ist, but I do think there's a peak age to be president and late 60s and beyond is not it.
Edit: 44 was a good age.

New York Mag
First New Hampshire Poll for 2020 Shows Trump Looking Vulnerable

Yes, it’s incredibly early to be taking polls for the 2020 presidential contest. But on the other hand, there are places like Iowa and New Hampshire where presidential politics is pretty much a constant preoccupation. So it’s worth taking a quick look at the University of New Hampshire’s Granite State poll, the first to examine the standing of potential candidates in the first-in-the-nation primary.

Among Democrats, what jumps off the page is that there does not at the moment appear to be a deep yearning for fresh faces. Bernie Sanders runs first at 31 percent and Joe Biden runs second at 24 percent. In other words, over half of New Hampshire Democrats currently favor a presidential candidate who would seek to become the first to celebrate an 80th birthday in the White House. Even though she represents a state whose media markets extend well into New Hampshire, Elizabeth Warren is running a relatively poor third at 13 percent. Perhaps, at 68, she’s just a bit too young.

Nine other potential Democratic candidates are named, and they register a collective 17 percent of the vote (Cory Booker leads the pack with 6 percent).

Among Republicans, no potential challenger to Donald Trump is tested, but interestingly enough, only 47 percent say they “plan” to vote for the president in the 2020 primary, with 23 percent saying they’d prefer another candidate and 30 percent being unsure. The same survey at the same point in Barack Obama’s presidency showed 64 percent of Democrats planning to vote for the incumbent, 5 percent expressing support for a different nominee, and 30 percent unsure.

New York Daily News
Just one-third of Americans say they would vote for President Trump in 2020 election

Only one-third of Americans would vote for President Trump if he runs for reelection in 2020, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday.

A scant 18% of people surveyed said they would “definitely” support Trump if he runs in 2020. Another 18% said they would “probably” vote for him, while 38% said they would vote for someone else.

While 2020 is still a small dot on the political horizon, and it’s unclear who will emerge as the democratic nominee or if Trump will face a primary challenge, a full 38% of respondents says they will be voting for someone other than Trump. ...

The NBC/WSJ poll also found that one-third of Americans say that the country is better off than it was when Trump assumed office, while 45% believe it is in worse shape than a year ago.

The Hill
Poll: Biden holds double-digit lead over field of 2020 Dem presidential contenders

Former Vice President Joe Biden has a double-digit lead over the next closest contender in a new poll of potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.

According to the latest data from Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, provided exclusively to The Hill, Biden has 27 percent among Democrats.

The next closest candidate is Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) at 16 percent, followed by 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and media mogul Oprah Winfrey, each at 13 percent.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is the only other candidate to pull double-digit support at 10 percent. Rounding out the field are Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), with 4 percent support each. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) gets 2 percent support and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is at 1 percent.

“Biden is now emerging as a very early front-runner — he beats handily even the celebrity candidates that have been floated,” said Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll co-director Mark Penn.

Are there any good, younger-ish candidates in purple or red states who could fill one or both roles. Political stars, of course. All of the suggestions, including mine, involve pols from blue states or old Joe.

Forgive me if this has been discussed in another thread, but I am assuming someone in the Republican party is likely to try to primary the Orange one. I'm thinking Rubio seems likely, only because he has, on very rare occasions, put some daylight between him and Trump. (but not enough daylight to prevent the base from voting for him.) Does anyone else think he's going to be primaried? and if yes, by whom?

If Cruz is still in the Senate he will definitely do it. I wouldn't put it past Lindsay Graham to take a stab at it, though he would have to reveal if he has a gay partner or not. Romney will be trotting about on his White Horse, with prophecy in his eyes. Carly Florina will definitely throw Demon Sheep filled with money at it again. Hell I wouldnt put it past the whole list of morons we had the last time to take another stab at Trump's diapers.
