Why will Trump win again?

Not because people believe his promises or because he is one of them.

He will win again because Democrats present again old political oligarchs...

If democrats keep fighting beetween them, instead unite, the little fascist narcissistic clown will win again..

Biden and Sanders both said that Trump was "the most corrupt president in history,

True, true and 1000 times true !!

As much as I hate to say it, Sanders has no hope and his age and heart attack will be open season for the Republicans if he actually looks like he'll get the nom, and many people will wonder if he can even last 4-8 years. His best bet is to endorse another candidate and try to get a VP position.

Bernie was on point and the clear winner tonight.

Several Democratic presidential contenders launched an attack on surging U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren on healthcare and taxes.

Health care: Do universal healthcare the same way the Japanese do it. I support Warren's idea here.

Taxes: Force multi nationals and big tech to pay up and trim budget waste and fat. But leave the rest alone. Unfortunately, further increases only end up hurting the working class.

Warren and the other candidates face a huge uphill battle to defeat President Trump amidst a booming economy, historically low unemployment and their party terminally infected with racism against whites, identity politics, open border policy, support for slaughtering the unborn at 40 weeks, etc.

Yang has long since passed Booker Buttigieg and O'Rourke in the polls and yet once again the MSM too afraid to talk about Yang, again!

U.S. health care . . . what a mess. Can you believe those stories of people who'd been paying their insurance fees for years, and then when some crisis happens and they inform their insurance companies about their cancers or whatever and these insurance companies say No!

What a scam and they're getting away with it too because, I guess, they're too big to fail.

I’m not sure about Yang’s poll numbers but I like the fact he is bringing something new to the table. I watched a podcast with him being interviewed at length and he’s bright, articulate and clear.

What they really needed was a circular firing squad to thin out the herd of candidates. Still, you know that you're the one to beat when everyone is taking pot shots at you.

Tossing about these tax numbers is misguided. The total cost is what's important. Get rid of the multi-million dollar execs, the multiple layers of insurance company beauracracy, and the stranglehold big pharma has on their captive market and lower the astronomical costs of American healthcare.

Agreed. That's why I believe that basic health insurance should be taken out of the private sector, who put profits above people, and administered by the govt on the people's behalf.

Agree with the Democrats on this one. Shame on Republicans who insist on private sector insurance.

Typical Democrats. The last debate had 10 candidates, so they decided to tighten up the rules for this one. The result? Twelve candidates! Shows what might happen if they are in charge again.

Flop of the night award goes to Beta O'Rourke. Mayor Pete tore him a new one on gun control. Beto and his flapping hands need to go home and spend his wife's money.

I thought Anderson Cooper actually did a good job, loved his last question about a surprising friendship, which most took as an 'across the political aisle' situation. Tulsi (where's the love?) had a great answer, saying "Rand Paul". A lot of the rest were torn on how to answer yet still maintain their 'woke' credentials.

MSM totally ignoring Yang and Gabbard. One the good side all “the squad” endorsing Bernie just confirmed he won’t be winning. Dems screwed the guy again.

And Joe continues to lead in the polls and present the clearest threat to Donnie - why did he have Rudy go on a rogue international smear campaign unless he was scared of him.

And now that the fairy tale regarding Hunter is left to only the Hannity's and Ingraham's of the world to foam over, I think Joe will continue to extend his lead.

I support a single payer Medicare like system - but just not yet - the country isn't ready for it. it has to be weaned off the private insurance industry - by improving Obama-case and offering a public option. Once they realize the public option works, then private health insurance can be phased out.

Let's be clear-eyed - the No.1 objective is to get the Great Orange Moron and Puppet of Putin out of office. I'm not sure he can withstand impeachment, but if he does, we need to candidate that can best win back the blue-collar vote - and that's Joe.

Biden/Warren, Biden/Booker, or Biden/Castro would all be winners in 2020....

Only a true believer could look at that lineup and their performances and not cringe.

What a crew! Hard to believe. I exclude Gabbard from this - she is the real thing and credible. But look what the DNC and leftist media is doing to her. What a farce.

@Lincolnman,

Lets add Biden/Beto to the list and make the comedy complete.

Are you kidding me - the Crazy Rudy "Walking Hand Grenade", show deserves an Emmy for best comedy...though I don't think Dimwit Donnie will be laughing as Rudy implodes and takes him down...

Go Rudy!

What fairy tale? He said he talked with hid father about his overseas job when Joe said he didn’t. He also admitted no board job if his daddy wasn’t VP at the time and also admitted his poor judgement in taking these foreign positions.

not a fairy tale at all. The fairy tale was the same ABC news editing a video of a Kentucky show and claiming it was attacks in Syria.

All Dems have to do is nominate Gabbard or even Yang. But you just can’t!
