Donald Trump appears to be confident that he’ll beat Bernie Sanders if the veteran political powerhouse decides to run again in 2020. It seems like Trump is significantly more worried about the potential of facing either Joe Biden or Oprah Winfrey.
Former Vice President Biden was a key figure at the side of Barack Obama during his 8 years in the White House and has a lot of fans in the DNC. The idea of Oprah running has gathered pace after her impassioned speech at the Golden Globes, but so far it seems that the TV star is reticent to run for the highest political office in the world.
“What we can’t let voters do is think they can get the same policies with someone they like better, like Joe Biden—someone who would fight for them but who doesn’t have the crass edge,” one former White House worker
“What we can’t let voters do is think they can get the same policies with someone they like better, like Joe Biden—someone who would fight for them but who doesn’t have the crass edge,” one former White House worker stated to Politico.
Thought they are very worried about Oprah, it seems much more likely that it will be either Biden or Sanders that Trump will face in 2020. It seems that Trump should be more worried about Sanders than he is – a poll by Morning Consult/Politico shows that Sanders would comfortably beat Trump by 42 to 36 percent.
Apparently, that as there is no obvious alternative to Sanders at the moment, it will be the veteran Vermont senator who will face the sitting president in 2020. All the signs point to Trump being embarrassed by Sanders. As the lowest rated president of all time, Trump looks easily beatable in 2020 and there could be a huge swing to the Democrats as punishment for the Trump administration and the way that it has acted since coming to power. It seems that for now at least, the world has had enough of TV stars being in charge of the White House and they would like the return of some sanity to US politics.
