who are these people anymore, why do they want to congest the democratic primaries, and why does it seem that every one of these people have sketchy pasts? (in Swalwell's case, he accused his predecessor of being a member of the Tea Party, even though said predecessor was an atheist, and more of a classical liberal than anything)
Well the Tea Party was classical liberal for about five minutes at the beginning before the evangelicals hijacked it

How many of the hundreds of Dems apparently running have a platform beyond "I'M NOT DRUMPF".

To be fair, this always seems to be the what the guy running against the incumbent uses. Kerry used I'M NOT BUSH, Romney used I'M NOT OBAMA. You'd think folks would eventually realize it's a losing proposition.

The higher ups probably know it's political theater and are using the opportunity to purge the less marketable or desirable candidates in preparation for 2024.

a candidate no one's really mentioned is mike gravel an 88 year old senator from the 1970s who is running just to get in the debates to force the candidates as far to the left as possible. he's also a 9/11 truther lol. he's only running because 2 teens heard about him through chapo trap house and asked him to run. i'm not left at all but anti-war so his foreign policy is fine to me and it's definetly entertaining seeing a candidate being so brutal calling out others as sellouts and even war criminals. i'm skeptical how much of his tweets are his own views since it's confirmed everything posted is made by his teen staff so it's all just regurgitated chaptraphouse talking points. his views from the looks of it are chomsky-esque anarcho-socialism so it'll be interesting how much he could influence the party.

I'm not a Trump supporter in any sense of the word, but I still think he's gonna win the 2020 election.

He's an incumbent during a period of relative economic prosperity, the Mueller Report turned out to be the load of nothing we all knew it would be (essentially torpedoing the "Russian bot" tactic's effectiveness among normies and centrists), the only wars ongoing are the ones he inherited from Bush and Obama (and we even managed to defeat ISIS militarily), the DNC keeps tearing themselves apart with their woke purity spirals that also have the effect of alienating the normies, and most of the normie fence-sitters are getting sick of TDS online even if they don't like Trump.

Most importantly, the DNC keeps dividing itself further while Trump has managed to unify the different factions of the Republican voter base.

The more Libertarian and Classical Liberal wings of the GOP view him as "their guy", the old guard Neocons are pragmatic enough to work with him to stop the Democrats, and the remnants of the Religious Right support him despite his moral failings, mainly due to Mike Pence as his token VP and because of the increasing contempt for anything remotely Judeo-Christian coming from the modern SJW Left that the DNC so eagerly panders to. Especially after the new abortion laws in certain states like New York and Vermont that are less about reproductive rights and more about rubbing salt in the wounds of the already de-fanged conservative Christian movement.

(I'm staunchly pro-choice and even I found those new laws to be extreme)

Oddly enough, the three figures who have the best chance of beating Trump are also the ones least likely to get nominated and supported by the DNC. Of course, I'm talking about Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Tulsi Gabbard.

Joe Biden is a cis white male and he's recently gotten the #MeToo treatment which has sank any goodwill he may have built up during the Obama years. Granted, the SJW mob is treating him with kid gloves compared to people like Al Franken, Brett Kavanaugh, or Vic Mignogna. But he's done, and any chance of him announcing his candidacy is over.

Bernie Sanders is also a cis white male and while he still has supporters, he's lost a lot of the momentum with the base that he once had in 2016. The DNC Establishment still hate him, and the SJW's who supported him in 2016 won't support him like they used to, mainly due to the fact that he's no longer the only "socialist" type of candidate in the race, and in addition to being a dreaded white male, he's against the idea of reparations for slavery, which further damaged his reputation among the woke crowd.

Bernie is very old, and while his age wasn't as much of a factor in 2016 (Bernie was 74, while Trump was 70 and Hillary was in her late 60's) he's up against younger candidates and if he were to win, he'd be 80 by his inauguration, making it very likely that he would die in office like FDR did, especially if he somehow made it to a second term,

Tulsi Gabbard is a woman, but has the dilemma of being hated by both sides of the Democrats. She's not corporate enough for the Establishment Democrats and not woke enough for the SJW Democrats.

Honestly, given the DNC's current trajectory, we'll probably get Kamala Harris as the candidate in 2020 (and possibly 2024) since she's a "Woman of Color" and is pro-censorship/pro-Silicon Valley, which appeals to the woke Millennial SJW's but her actual voting record is mostly in line with the corporate wing of the Democrat establishment, so she's the best of both worlds and can reach across both isles of the party, having a built-in appeal for both the Justice Democrats and the Establishment/Old Guard Democrats.

Elizabeth Warren has a similar appeal and approach as Harris, but she's white and effectively killed any goodwill she had with the coastal hipsters and college SJW's by LARP'ing as a squaw for so long (the DNA test was the final nail in the coffin for her candidacy)

Corey Booker is black and a "woke capitalist" as well and there's also Peter Buttigeig as well, although both are male and while Buttigieg is openly gay, he's also white and seems to be more in common with the old liberals of the 1990's and 2000's than with the current 2010's SJW zeitgeist (he still has his "woke" moments but not quite to the degree as Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, or the Justice Democrats) so they're not quite as an obvious choice as Kamala Harris.

Howard Schultz, Beto O'Rourke, and Mike Gravel are essentially throw-away candidates at this point with no real hope of gaining any traction at all. Schultz and Gravel seem to be in it for publicity.

As for why Beto would even consider running for President after getting his ass kicked in the Senate race by Ted Cruz of all people.

Remember that Ted Cruz is seen as an Evangelical relic these days and is widely disliked by both Democrats and a lot of Republicans as well, and yet he still beat Beto if that says anything about him as a candidate.

(My guess is that Beto knows he's gonna lose the primaries but is using the publicity and internet buzz about him for another Senate race in 2022 or maybe see if he can be VP for someone like Harris or Booker)

Andrew Yang would be in the same dead-end category as Beto were it not for his internet meme following and his policies being the most in line with the Silicon Valley tech commissars, so he has the potential of unexpectedly catching up in the primaries as a wild card dark horse candidate even with the rampant corruption in the DNC oligarchy (The DNC does get a lot of the same funding from the tech elite circles that Yang came from).

Remember that Trump was also a joke candidate at the beginning of the last election cycle with a similar ironic meme following at first, but he caught on with the base and ended up winning.

Now, I don't think Yang would win against Trump and he'll probably lose to Kamala Harris in gaining the nomination but I could see him being the unexpected challenger and runner-up in the same manner that Bernie Sanders was in 2016. Odds are he's not even gonna make it that far, but his strange online following and ties to the tech commissars puts him just a step above the obvious dead-end contenders like Beto and Schultz.

That being said, even in the bizarre chance that Yang is able to beat the odds against the DNC elites and trounce Kamala Harris in the primaries, he'll still get his ass kicked by Trump.

It doesn't help that the Establishment views him as a joke while the woke crowd doesn't like him because he's male, a "tech bro", and Asian (who are basically Honorary Whites in the eyes of the SJW's/Progressive Stack crowd)

Honestly, Yang is the wild card meme candidate of 2020, like Ron Paul was in the 2008 and 2012 election cycles, and Bernie and Trump were in 2016. The fact that Bernie was the runner-up in 2016 and Trump was the winner has lent further credibility to politicians with a major internet following.

You had meme candidates in the 2000's as well (Dennis Kucinich for the Democrats and Ron Paul for the Republicans) and it could even be argued that Ross Perot was the proto-meme candidate in the 90's but they all eventually failed and were crushed by the establishment despite their massive online popularity.

When Trump and Bernie announced their candidacies in 2016, they were derided as meme candidates at first but the former ended up getting elected while the latter was the runner-up (and would have probably very likely secured the nomination were it not for blatant DNC corruption)


TL;DR-Kamala Harris is most likely to get the nomination, although I wouldn't rule out Corey Booker (or a freak accident nomination of Andrew Yang). Donald Trump is probably going to win in 2020 either way

The teens who run his account are irony leftists, but Gravel himself seems to be a basic bitch liberal with hippie conspiratard tendencies. Realistically he'd vote with Joe Biden most of the time. I think the spat with the chapo guys comes from them pointing it out. Those zoomers are dumb and social media has poisoned their brains into thinking memes are real.
 
Oh man, I just thought of something. Imagine Yang does somehow get the nomination. We're going to be suddenly hearing asian people say very asian supremacy type things. Will they just be careful to not show too much "Glorious asian master race #1" type stuff?

In my experience, even american liberal asians become fucking ultra racial supremicists when the topic of asians comes up. The only thing they love more than talking about how great asians are is talking about how the kind of asian they are is so much better than those other asians.

chink here, agree and eagerly waiting for the rise of an asian nationalist movement. something funny with asians is that even though the majority vote democrat, they can get away with some really conservative and nationalist views. a few years ago an asian cop accidently shot a black man and a bunch of asians protested in defense of the cop because they felt he was being charged for manslaughter because he's asian. i think even if black people had a protest for a black cop that did the same thing they'll be an outrage from blm. it's telling that the only two protests i can recall with a big asian prescence recently were ones against affirmative actions and a pro-cop one.

Perhaps someone else had already mentionned it, but the 2020 DNC convention will be in Milwaukee.
https://www.jsonline.com/story/news...nvinced-democrats-2020-convention/3140864002/ ( http://archive.md/yqZmw )

You could easily sell this as a Cinderella story, how Milwaukee outflanked Houston and Miami and grabbed one of the biggest political shows in the world.
But to those who brought the 2020 Democratic National Convention to Milwaukee, there was nothing little about the city, the bid or the stakes.

"I don't like to think of us as any sort of underdog, some David versus Goliath matchup," said Alex Lasry, the bid committee chair who is a Milwaukee Bucks executive. "This was Milwaukee outing itself as a top city in the country. It was Milwaukee showing everyone what it is we see when we live here, what we believe."

It was a big lift that played out over a year and a half of planning, showing off facilities and even nailing down commitments for hotel rooms, with Mayor Tom Barrett's chief of staff at one point quipping that he felt like he worked for Hotels.com.

They got $11 million in fundraising commitments. They cobbled together a $10 million line of credit that would be used only as a backstop, with a $7.5 million promise from a still unknown donor and another $2.5 million promise from unions.
In addition, about $750,000 was raised from Milwaukee's corporate community to cover expenses through the bid process.

How convenient for selecting Milwaukee who had once elected in the past 3 socialists mayors. :smug:

If Andrew Yang is smart enough not to let slip any of his views on the "Taiwan Question", he'll probably have the ethnic Chinese vote locked down. He has given some interview to Taiwanese media, but so far no foreign policy gaffes that would draw the wrath of the Communist Chinese.
