They have to survive their own primary and the DNC first which reminds me, did the DNC change their primary rules yet so some candidate isn't Bernie Sandered? Don't remember hearing about it.

I agree. If Trump makes it to 2020 as President but remains as unpopular as he is now, I think there is a good chance that he could get primary competition. I think somebody with some of Trump's attributes (tough on immigration for instance) but who is a little more moderate and experienced could stand a shot at beating him. It really all depends on how popular Trump is with his base come 2020.

Hilarious. And Democrats say they are "guaranteed" to win in 2020
They said they were guaranteed to win in 2016, so...........

Only if Trump decides to pass on the nomination, and if so, Pence will step up and be elected.

This is not the Democratic Party that we USED TO support, it is something else, I'm just not sure what to call it.

Why would they change something that works for them? They are only interested in changing those things that don't work in their favor, by "their" I mean that core group that is trying to force globalism on us against our will.

What a nice symmetry, the daily news shows how bad the 2016 Rep candidates were and are.

we are 3.5 years out, at least two years from this even mattering in the slightest.

The idea that 2020 can be predict prior to 2018 results is just silly.

If the Dems magically crush it and take control of both the house and senate, in 2018 that would change everything. If the Rs crush it 2018 that changes everything too.
If trump flees to Russia and sets up his own Russian TV show, that changes things again.

It is a little early to know who will even be in the running for 2020, nobody knows at this point. I mean who was predicting Trump even being the GOP pick in 2012?

Again, what primary rule hurt Sanders ?????

Martin O'Malley has done something other Democrats have not, and that is go around the country and support other Democrats and help them win.

He is a party builder, and that is what we need. And yes, I voted for him in 2016

That was the same argument heard before Trump became the nominee. Why revive the same failed message ?
