Default Looks like Bernie Sanders can decide who the Democrat nominee will be.

The D field is thinning out, with some dropping out and other fading into "also ran" status. At this point, in my opinion, the D primary race is down to Biden and Warren and who wins will come down to what Sanders does.
First lets make something clear: Bernie Sanders can't win.
Ok, now that we have that out of the way, here is how Bernie can decide the race:
- Stay in the race. If he stays in till the end his Bernistas (loyal followers) will stick with him until the end even though he has no chance. This splits the far left side of the D voters between Sanders and Warren. Biden Wins.
- Drop out of the race. If Bernie drops out his Bernistas will split between not voting and voting for Warren but very few will join the Biden camp. Assuming the majority vote, Warren wins.

My $.02

Sounds about right to me. Either way, it is looking good for Trump. He just has to keep from doing something stupid enough to loose the election.

What about Bernie dropping out and endorsing another candidate? He is a multimillionaire so it will be more expensive to get his endorsement than last time when all it took was a beach house for him to campaign for Hillary.

Speaking of endorsements, Obama has to be sweating Biden's polling lead. Biden was Obama's insurance policy against impeachment who has gone on to lead a weak field of candidates to be Obama's heir. Obama would love for Biden to crash and burn before the South Carolina primary so he can play king maker probably for Harris.

2020 is Trump's to lose, for sure.

Nothing the Democrats have can actually defeat him.

I've not figured Trump out. He's either the smartest President since Jefferson, or the dumbest since Carter.

He also beat 600/1 odds to gain the presidency. Basically doing the same thing he does today.

Crooked Hillary beat Deplorables in the name calling department. MAGA beat Stronger Together and Love Trumps hate. (Who remembers those?)

Pocahontas or Sleepy Joe are just too easy.

I believe Trump will finish his term in 2024.
