lol bernie would squash trump in 2020.
2016 was not the election of Donald J. Trump. It was the rejection of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
as long as the dems don't rig the primaries for a corrupt establishment dem, they'll win easily. and even if they try, i'm not sure it'll work this time as bernie's popularity has only gotten larger.
bernie would win all the states hillary did, plus the rust belt, plus possibly florida.
trump has done nothing the past two years, and will do nothing in the next two, but alienate african-americans, hispanics, women, and young people from voting for him. and in fact, has encouraged them to show up to the polls in droves against him with his stances and policies on child separation at the border, the national anthem, failing of puerto rico recovery, his blatant disrespect to women with is unwavering loyalty to scum like roy moore and brett kavanaugh, and of course those god-awful tax cuts that only benefit the rich.
people like me who sat at home on election day in 2016 have all the more reason to get out and vote in 2020. and if you give us someone who excites us with popular populist policies... then lordy, it'll be a bloodbath.
i live in a deep red state, so most of my family is conservative. yet half of them told me they would've voted bernie instead of trump in 2016 if he'd have been the nominee.
turns out, populist policies like getting money out of politics, medicare for all, college for all, and ending the wars are bipartisan issues to the majority of americans.
