Biden for 2 reasons.

1) He will be easy to beat.

2) If us Republicans lose, at least we won't have a ridiculous extremist for a President.

If we are going to have a dem POTUS, I prefer a really crazy one for entertainment purposes. So my choice would be Warren. She is a flat out loon and would provide AOC level entertainment with wacky, absurd statements.


Joe is a little boring. He would be politics as usual, but would provide a lot of good gaffes and enough hair sniffing to be interesting, but not as much as Warren.


Sanders is a true loon as well, but he is old hat and we have heard all his crazy statement already. I would really prefer new entertainment.


Anyone else?
I dont really want our government to be "entertaining".

Out of the clown car of current dem candidates, Gropey Joe would likely do the least amount of damage. His 39 years of ineffective service in govt is testament to that.

Yet we could still be entertained somewhat by the inevitable handwringing and shrieks from the SJW left over the "trauma" of Biden, being part of the white male patriarchy nonsense they focus on.

I did not vote, not being a conservative, but right now I am liking Tulsi Gabbard. She waylaid Kamala Harris in the last debate, and rightfully so. If I'm going to vote for a Democrat, I want an actual liberal and not some right-wing prosecutor who puts pot smokers in jail, and then jokes about having smoked pot herself.

There are no real good options at this time. The leading Dems have all lined up behind the chant of 'raaaaacist.' I plan to focus more on state and local elections for 2020.

The one that says illegal immigration is a crime and we need a Wall to keep them out.

Still waiting for that one.

Meh, Tulsi has issues also. The dems are in circular firing squad mode right now, so fratricide isnt abnormal.

Why would any conservative prefer any of them?

Never said she didn't have issues but to me she sound the most sane. She doesn't support most of the loony issues like the rest of the democratic candidates.

I don't. But if you must have a democrat (beyond our control), I was just wondering about preferences.


Harris and Biden are the least crazy of the front runners, but just re-hash all the old dem sound bytes and offer nothing new. MOST of the things they advocate they know can never be instituted, and they just float them for votes.


Now Warren and Bernie are a different kind of crazy. I guess we just need to wait as well for AOC to age, as she would be a great dem candidate- she is really off her rocker crazy.

I got the question wrong lol. I thought you were asking which candidate do you hope wins to increase Trump and Republicans chance on winning 2020.



If you meant, if a Democrat were to win, which would you prefer at least... I'd easily say Biden. At least he is center left.
