Trump's constant lying and BSing is the exact opposite of "tells it like it is", and voters do not find that refreshing in the least.

some voters are.
But what im thinking of is, that he's in the office already, and things are sailing along fairly well. So people have no harsh reason to switch out captains at this point.
that's the inertia i'm talking about.

I think a lot of people have a lot of issues with Trump... buuut... he hasn't wreck the ship and they don't know much about these new folks... so inertia... equals win.

Some of the same ol swamp creatures from the Bush and Reagan eras sitting next to Trump now.
I guess people are used to them and don't seem to really care.

Biden is out of step with the far Left socialists running the Democrat party today. He recently had to bow and scrape with an apology for the sin of suggesting Pence was a good guy. It's doubtful the open minded Progressives ascendant in the would choose someone who had expressed such traitorous sentiments.

Bernie has his core of dedicated supporters but he fails the identity politics test. Like Biden he is old, white and male. Add to that the personal wealth he has accumulated over a career of public service which has yielded remarkably few advances in the socialist agenda he relentlessly touts. The same attributes, incandescent anger, class warfare, racial bias, government give aways for vote buying, and above all hatred of Donald Trump are available in much more identity politics friendly packages in other candidates.

Even fake-o Beto, a rich white man so egotistical he films his teeth getting clean has gotten a far warmer reception than Bernie.

Tulsi Gabbard is gaining traction with many Ds but the establishment hate her more than they hated Bernie.

Gaining traction? Where is the evidence?

Gabbard has fallen from grace with her policy stances.

Quote:
Gabbard staked out foreign policy positions that shocked her allies. She joined Republicans in demanding that Barack Obama use the term “radical Islam.” She was the member of Congress most willing to advocate for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. She dubbed herself a “hawk” on terrorism. Reporters documented worrying ties to anti-LGBTQ groups — including one run by her father — and anti-Muslim Hindu nationalists.

California will put one of the many D. candidates with the best chance to win the nomination. Our Primary is March 3, 2020 a full three + months than in the past. With 10+ percent of the US Population the winner will get a big push and collect big bucks.

That said, I wonder if Trump will have a Republican compete to be their parties nominee, I'd truly love to see Romney or another credible Republican kick trump's ass in the primary here.
