2020 US Presidential Election | Primaries

Unread postby Brenden » 5 March 2019, 12:49

At least on the Democratic side, the primary campaigns for the 2020 US presidential election are well underway. So let's discuss!

Who do you support at this point?
What are the major issues you care about?
Who do you think will win the Democratic primary? Republican?
Who do you think has the best chances of taking down Trump? In the (R) primary? In the general?

I know I'm British and thus have no valid stake in this at all but I'm not quite over my obsession with US politics so I figured I may as well chime in.

Who do you support at this point? When the primary started getting rolling I was all aboard for Elizabeth Warren and still really like her as a candidate and potential President. But due to my apparently pathological need to back outsiders the more I see and hear of Pete Buttigieg the more I like him even though his odds of winning are tiny.
What are the major issues you care about? Climate change is honestly the biggest. Outside of just 'get rid of Trump as soon as fucking possible'
Who do you think will win the Democratic primary? Republican? Democratic candidate will be Joe Biden if he runs. If he doesn't I'm thinking it'll end up being Kamala Harris. Republicans are going to stick with Trump because at this point he owns that party wholesale.
Who do you think has the best chances of taking down Trump? In the (R) primary? In the general? I have this notion of John Kasich running against Trump in a Republican primary but there's no way he'd actually win such a contest so the general is the only shot of taking Trump down. In which case I'd tip Joe Biden as the candidate probably most likely to be able to beat him as much as I'd rather that not be the case.
