    Julian Castro is a pragmatist with a largely blank slate on the national issues. He misses only name recognition. Anyone smart will try to put him on their ticket as VP, setting him up for a 2024 or 2028 run. He was smart to jump on the ticket now to woo money that might otherwise get caught in Beto mania.

    Someone with name recognition at the top and Castro for veep would likely unseat Trump.

    The market has probably already priced in everything, since a downturn has been anticipated for so long. and will probably recover throughout the next 18 months without a true bust, depending on Trump/China trade war. If that happens. Trump will have the economy, barely, but is polling pretty bad everywhere else.

    As long as the Dems don't go to far left during the primary, they will enter the election with a likeability factor, healthcare, and an economy that is a little more competitive from the political standpoint on their side. The GOP totally bombed everything when they had no healthcare plan after 8 years.

    This isn't going be a cakewalk for Trump unless the economy gets hot hot hot again and the Dems shoot themselves in the foot with an unlikeable candidate.

    Independents will make the general in 2020 just like 2016, but more so.
    What do they want?

    What does the electorate care about right now?

    [​IMG]

    Some polls with some potential candidates tossed in for NC to keep you thirsty until larger national polls start in the coming months

    Its interesting to see the same trends over and over. People don't like Trump, but they REALLY don't like Congress. Not sure that's a presidential win for Trump though if the Dem candidate can escape that congressional blame.

    Clever California puts themselves in play

    With earlier primary date, California seeks 'larger role' in 2020 election process

    "While politically Ojeda considers himself a moderate, his views have been likened more to left-wing populism, running on a Medicare for all, legalization of cannabis, anti-lobbyism and government accountability platform."

    ^^^^^^ that will lose him some trump voter votes. is he trying to legalize weed on a federal level? because it is legal recreationally in a lot of states now you can just walk in to most dispensaries and buy things like if you were at a liquor store without a card.

    canada has a third party. all it does is split the vote. we have had several parties. the NDP is far left loonies that split the liberal vote and reform was a right wing party that split the vote with the conservatives. .all it does is get you endless minority govts

    I hear ya
    I just find the two party to be flawed...I don't trust either
    Right now I do trust the Republicans more because the Demo's are corrupt to the core...But there are some real Criminals in both parties at the highest levels
    Picking the lesser of two evils is what I see now
    Personally I think they are both infiltrated and corrupt
    Anybody supporting Killary and Black Jesus is totally confused IMO

    I wish it was no party...not gonna happen but that is what I would prefer

    TLDR It is all fucked up

    We can't do it alone, though.
