Who Will Be the Democratic Nominee for President? (April 2019)

Who fills this spot in 2020?

Who is it gonna be? It’s time again that we asked Colorado Pols readers to predict the name of the eventual 2020 Democratic nominee for President. When last we asked, you were still rolling with California Sen. Kamala Harris as the most likely nominee.

Mike Harden of the publication formerly known as the Colorado Statesman is pretty excited about the fact that former Gov. John Hickenlooper may have moved from 1% to 2% in national polling. Of course, the Monmouth University Poll that sparked his enthusiasm has a margin of error of +/-5.4%, so it’s possible that Hick is actually polling in the high sevens. The leader in the Monmouth poll is still former Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to officially enter the race.

As always, we want to know what you think will happen here — not what you want to happen or who you personally might support. If you had to place a bet on the outcome TODAY, who do you predict will be the Democratic nominee for President in 2020?

And since there are still a bagillion candidates and we don’t want to take up the entire screen with this one poll, you’ll have to cast your vote after the jump…

    "That Sound Bend Indiana Mayor Guy" — is that a '90's Grunge Rock band?

    We have Booker, Buttigieg, Castro, Delaney, Gabbard, Gillibrand, Harris, Hickenlooper, Inslee, Klobuchar, Messam, Moulton, O'Rourke, Ryan, Sanders, Swalwell, Warren, Williamson, & Yang, with Biden & Bennet likely to jump in soon.

    13 or 14 have qualified for the June debates already (maybe more — I am not following the "polling results" criteria), seven put out tax returns; seven raised $5 million or more.  Doing the trifecta:  Harris, Klobuchar, O'Rourke, Sanders and Warren. 

    I'm still leaning Harris, with Warren or Klobuchar offered VP.

    Two questions;

    Are there really 34 people that think Buttigieg will be the Dem nominee for POTUS?

    Do they have any money?

    Shouldn't Yammy be on the right in that image?

    It is South Bend…not Sound Bend.

    I thought you would have fixed that by now.😉

    Please explain the order of the candidates. Why did you not put them in alphabetical order?

    I voted Warren cause she's my fave, but Bernie has the inside track right now.  Once debates start, and people get tired of his screaming without thought out plans, maybe they'll switch to her, with a similar message, with a nicer package, and more thought through proposals.

      Except, daft one, on one important subject it's bernie being the adult.  He's against impeachment because if the Senate has to try Putin Boy, that's all they will talk about.  Therefore they won't talk about education, health care, climate change or other winning issues for Democrats.   And finally, of course, Democrats lose the vote, with key defections like Manchin splitting their ranks.

      Warren just loves the idea of rushing into that trap.  When it's bernie cautioning against empty posturing, that says something about where Trump Derangement Syndrome is luring the uber left.

      I'm still with Klobuchar, with Ka mela my second choice.  But Buttigieg is moving up, drafting behind the leaders and dreaming of that checkered flag.

      But it’s well to remember, we’ve only gone 50 miles in this Indianapolis 500 replay.
