Joe Biden is crusin on the top of 2020 Democratic Presidential polls…..
One the reasons is the above ….
The left wing of the Democratic party is split between Senator’s Sanders and Warren….
If they BOTH stay in the race next year?
Joe Biden is the odds on Favorite to be the nominee….
Biden will own the moderate and establishment Deomcrats…… with the Black vote probably his?
Neither of the other ‘s have a chance….
The Hill adds a sense of rivalry to the picture….
Oh, and there IS the part about Sanders NOT actually being a Democrat….
Strategists say Sanders and Warren will be hard-pressed to share the same lane, leading to speculation that if both run for the White House, one will have to run to the center, however slightly.
“Someone, most likely Senator Warren, would have to move a little to the center to be successful in a primary and general,” said Smikle, who worked for Clinton and served as the executive director to the New York Democratic Party. “Otherwise you leave yourself vulnerable to the right in both elections.”
Publicly, Warren and Sanders aren’t doing anything that would make people see them as rivals — albeit friendly ones.
Both Warren and Sanders’s office declined to comment for this story.
Democrats say Warren has gained favor within the ranks of the Democratic Party.
On July 12, she was the only senator to attend a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee breakfast at the committee’s Capitol Hill headquarters.
At the breakfast, before a room of one hundred people, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sang Warren’s praises.
She said it was rare for a senator to join the fundraising effort for the House, but that she had been doing everything in her power to get Democrats elected in the midterms, according to sources in the room.
“This is not typical,” Pelosi said, according to a source in the room. “But that’s because she’s done more than anyone else. She’s dedicated to winning.”
Sanders, who put off some Democrats who thought he stayed in the 2016 primary too long against Clinton, also has spent considerable time since that election crisscrossing the country to campaign — and win loyalty — from fellow Democrats….
