    Biden Uncut Could Rival Trump's Reality Show

      These candidates all seem to endorse "diversity." That is, unless, it's diversity of opinion. Even Ray Charles could see that.

        I'm no yuge fan of Trump on a personal level, and I didn't vote for him (voted Libertarian for the first time on a presidential ticket), but not all of his policies are terrible; only a minority are. That said, I really think the only person that would likely beat Trump in 2020 is Biden, because he appeals to the same particular subset of voters as Trump did in 2016. However, Biden will never get there because the fringe left will character assassinate him prior to the primaries. He's a dead man walking, and the early shots were fired before he even announced. He has a bullseye squarely on his back, and it wasn't placed there from anyone in the Republican party.

        If you are a Trump fan, the balance of the field sans Biden would probably leave you licking your chops. They are all so far left (or they will end up there by necessity) that they essentially make all prior Democratic presidents look centrist or even perhaps a hair conservative. It's crazy! I mean Trump is not a traditional conservative - some of his policies are very big government and interventionist - but by and large he sits on the ideological historical right policy-wise (meaning you exclude the tweet behavior and his prior personal life). The Dem candidates on the other hand, outside of Biden, will eventually be so far left that they will alienate huge swaths of the Democratic base - much like the prior cycle did with rural and working class dems that switched and voted R.

        If Vegas took money on presidential races (they probably do), then Trump is a fairly reasonable bet at this point, no matter what generic ballots or popularity polls say.

            This is correct. Bernie is Trump's only competition. Harris is the 2nd place choice. Biden is 93 yrs. old and senile. That being said, if any Democrat were to beat Trump, I would hope it was Biden. I'm sure most Republicans would agree with me. The rest of the field are bat **** crazy.

          As someone who considers himself squarely a Trump "voter" and not necessarily a Trump "fan" (I presume there's a difference?), it's not hard to envision Biden doing the exact same thing that the Witch did in '16. That would be insulting 1/3 (at least) of the population because they agreed with a lot of the current President's policies.

          For some reason his (the President) opponents then, and obviously now, can't leave the identity politics strategy alone. I thought it was reckless and irresponsible the way Democrats presented themselves at the convention in the summer of '16, with all the non-stop blathering about phobias and hate, and I still do. Talk about dividing the Country! While they were patting each other on the back Trump was releasing a list of judges he would nominate if elected. What more need be said? Now here comes that old pervert talking about what?... The President is a white nationalist!

          Why doesn't Biden bring up the border crisis? Is he really as stupid as Trump says he is (Symone Sanders)?

              That's a group of people that wanna' hear about nothing, and nothing but, policies geared towards economic stability. Clear-headed common sense folk who ain't got time to listen to some career politician talking about who uses whose bathroom at Target, and if you disagree you're a nationalist. Easy pickin's.

              Biden is a walking gaffe machine. He will slit his own throat.

                Dude is hilarious.

                His first "presser" is must-see comedy relief. I guess sometimes it's better to laugh in the face of tragedy (sort of).

              Is there an honest person in our country that truly believes that we've somehow screwed the rest of the world in the last 2 years?

              Maybe our international social welfare is down a tiny amount, but sheesh. I give $100 to BBBS last year and this year I give $85 and I'm a Nazi?

                  These are the same people that honestly believe they're morally superior. See the difference?

                  That is both sad and intellectually stunted.

                  Biden is so old, his lawn signs will say, "Get off my lawn".

                    I think Kamala Harris is hot. She must have been smokin when she was bangin the old married mayor of Frisco. He's the one who gave her a "leg up" in politics...…..

                      Not sure about "hot", however she's not 'cold'; more like 'lukewarm'... but I would say she's extremely "hot" compared to Hillary.

                    Of all the Dems, I like Yang a lot. Boo dud edge is okay....I’m not voting for any of them, but those two stand out as candidates I don’t hate.
