Which Democratic Ticket is MOST Electable Against Trump?


Let’s go back to the phones at (617) 830-4750
where many times people are a hoping to get on. Let’s go to
our caller from the eight six Oh area code color from eight six so maybe down in Connecticut,
is that possible? Eight six. So maybe you have this muted, but I can’t hear you. Eight
six. So going once eight six. So going twice. No, eight six so, all right, that’s too bad.
Let’s try instead. Three four seven. Who’s calling today from the three four seven area
code. Hello? Yes, that’s you. Hey David, I’m a big fan of your show. Thank
you. I have a, I have a question. Do you, which democratic ticket do you think would
be best? Which candidates, president and vice president do you think would win a best? Cause?
I know there are a lot of mixes and matches that would be Trump, but I know there are
a lot that aren’t. There are a lot that wouldn’t. What is your opinion? I have not thought about vice-presidential
at all. So I really couldn’t tell you. I mean w w as far as what the polling says right
now in terms of who could beat Trump in the general, you know, both Bernie and Biden do
really well against Trump and hypothetical polls. Harrison Warren do well, but not quite
as well. I’m just sort of going from memory here. But as far as VP, I mean, listen, in
one sense, I don’t think VP is going to matter that much in 2020. I think that this thing
is going to be won or lost on a couple of things. One turnout in a few key states who
gets slightly more people to vote. Number two, how much voter suppression takes place,
and number three, how well the eventual Democratic nominee is going to be able to fight back
against Trump’s personal attacks and his style during the debates. The VP candidate is ultimately
only going to debate Mike Pence or whoever replaces Mike pence on the ticket. If he’s
replaced, that’s not gonna matter nearly as much as, uh, the, the other things that I
mentioned. So I honestly, I have not thought about VP at all. Hmm. That’s interesting. I, I believe that
since there are a lot of popular Democratic candidates that, uh, that are, could be popular
in one area but really, really unpopular in another area. I know, uh, I know that we have
a lot of, I know I will very much like Andrew Yang. Um, well actually, no, he might not
be the best example, but there are a lot of coastal Democratic candidates that don’t think
could do well in the south. Um, and there are a lot of candidates say, uh, Biden were,
or, you know, actually say Warren or say maybe even, uh, well I guess if we’re not going
to count the straight white candidates that the won’t really make the second round of
debates, but I don’t think people like Warren could really, uh, make the, uh, make, uh,
people in the Midwest or even on the west coast. Uh, very, I know, I, I generally think that you’re right,
you are correct that different candidates will appeal to different pieces of the electorate
to different degrees. I actually think you’re wrong about Warren Warren does really well
when she goes to the Midwest and talks to Trump voters and explains policy. I actually
think that she will do better than people give her credit for. Although I completely
agree with what you’re saying, that the idea of northeastern liberals in the deep south
for example, it, it, there may be some lack of appeal there, but I actually think Warren
does really well when she talks to red state voters. I might look into that. That’s very interesting.
Thank you for, uh, for talking with me. I appreciate it. Yeah, thank you for the call.
Great to hear from you.

  1. It's basically a leftist apocalypse out there. A reasonable Republican has a better chance than any of the Dem candidates. Bernie's a sell out who sponsored war in Serbia.

  2. None of the people you have in the thumbnail can beat Trump.

    Yang or Tulsi could, but the party won't get behind anyone who isn't gonna push the status quo.

  3. It's Simple

    A progressive POTUS with a moderate VPOTUS or visversa…
    Example: Sanders/Buttigieg, Biden/Gabbard, Warren/Buttigieg, Harris/Castro…

  4. Yang and Bernie are the only 2 candidates who are picking up trump voter support in the double digits! Don’t sleep on Yang.

  5. Pete, and Kamala are very unlikable. But they are the smartest candidates. Yang and Biden are too nice and will get strongarmed by everyone. Harris and Sanders have absolutely no chance.

  6. Anyone that thinks Bernie has a chance to beat Trump is a moron. He has the worst chance of all the candidates. The only ones he appeals to is the far left.

  7. Of course, only one person not only deserves the seat,' but issues the most qualified and has the best chance of defeating Trump and THAT IS BERNIE SANDERS HANDS FIRST DOWN! IT'S BERNIE'S PARTY. Every candidate is graded and judged against whether or not they are in favor of one policy or another and it all comes from Sanders's playbook from 2016. He shouldn't even have to do a primary. With the fragile and desperate state we as a country find ourselves in we should be begging him to be president. Either way, I pray for all of our sakes he somehow overcomes mainstreams obstacles and win because the human race can not survive another 4 years of Donald Trump. I truly believe that. So if not Bernie then definitely Warren. Anyone other than those 2 and we're screwed. Only difference is the timetable in which our doom finds us!

  8. I do think VP matters in one sense. For example, a pairing of Warren and Sanders would probably unite each side of the left while preserving the level of excitement, thus potentially increasing turnout.

  9. Non-interventionist foreign policy always wins. Bush ran against Clinton foreign policy, Obama against Bush's, Trump against Obama's. Gabbard is the only one who can beat Trump.

  11. David, what is the best way to get a MSM show to host an informational town hall that covered each of the proposed health care plans. I think most Americans need more information about each plan, both good and challenging parts. I worry that people are rejecting Medicare for All without understanding the details. Also, we need to compare that plan with the others. I know that might be hard for a smaller budgeted independent show, but it seems like someone should do this for America.

  12. Not the centrists, no matter what they tell you. Winning is about two things, overcoming voter apathy. It doesn't matter if someone polls higher, if they don't excited those people polled enough to get out and vote.
    The second aspect is which candidates can get Independents and even take republicans, which isn't don't by running right because anyone who is deep right will never vote for a dem. So again you need someone who's policies appeal to people despite party.

  13. There are a bunch of Dem candidates who will beat tRump and will be good in office, and one of them will get the nomination. The biggest danger will be people who pout because their favorite didn't get the nom and they then refuse to vote or vote for a Narcissistic vanity POS like Jill Stein or Ralph Nader.

  14. BIDEN-HARRIS…
    But I'm open to others we must think centrist now, represent ALL 330+ million… going to far with far left aspirations now with the wreckage that's going to need fixing is pure fantasy.
    We need stone cold TRUMPutin busters😘

  15. of course turn out is important…THAT IS WHY…THERE MUST….be a woman and a WOMAN OF COLOR on the ticket….in order to get the turnout.
    bernie i hope realizes this…

  16. I think the question of who would beat Trump is misleading and a better question is who would lose to Trump. And the biggest thing to take away from 2016 is that you lose against Donald Trump by being the status quo candidate.

  17. If people think Biden, the creepy old sleeping pill, could take on Trump better than Warren that is clear proof of a latent sexism.
    Warren is clearly a much better fighter, much more passionate, has much more energy, has much better and more political proposals and is much more ELOQUENT for crying out loud!!

  18. Well for Bernie and Warren to join their campaigns would be very interesting and I think it would be very good not to have them oppose each other in a few months from now

  19. David, I respectfully disagree with you about the importance of any vice presidential candidate in 2020. We've got 3 major presidential candidates who are septuagenarians. We've GOT to face the fact that no one lives forever, and if the president dies in office the vice president becomes president. That's a lot of power for someone who doesn't matter

  20. I think that we should not forget about Stacy Abrams, as an exceptional (potential) VP. I feel that we need people of color, as well as women in these representative roles.

  21. A Bernie/Warren ticket, I believe is the best ticket out there. Bernie is the leader we need and Warren is an executioner. The two bring together the biggest coalitions, and the progressive agenda is the winning strategy.

  22. Bernie scares the shite out of to many people in the states because he is to progressive. For 40 or 50 years the Republicans have been demonizing and misrepresenting what Democratic socialism is. A good portion are scared to death of it as they equate it with Venezuela and the likes where there biggest problem is governmental corruption at the higgtest level.
    It will take close to a generation to re educate the peole tha don't understand it. It will take a long slow approach to undo the damage that the Republicans and Fox have done so Bernie is not gge right approach. He would be all guns blazing and trying to do it all right now and this will scare people who are still trying to come to grips with it.
    A more moderate slow approach would be much more appealing to a huge portion of the population that should not be ignored.

  23. Any democrat is equally electable against Trump. There is no logical reason to vote for Trump ever. Never has been. Voting for Hitler was a more logical choice back in 1933.

  24. I am good to go with Warren/Sanders or Sanders/Warren don’t care how they run it. Of course, I will vote for “Blue no matter who” – we have no choice we must get the Orange Yeti, Moscow Mitch, Russia’s Rand and Leningrad Lindsey out and THEN a complete house cleaning of all the other unqualified trash brought in to fill positions. (be sure to let them know any money paid to be put in that position can only be returned from the person they paid their bribe, I mean “fee” to, in this case the Orange Yeti and NOT this government)

  25. I could see a Biden-Booker ticket. It rolls off the tounge. Biden called him “future president”. The way identity politics works in the Democratic Party is it can’t be two white males on one ticket.

  26. If Biden or Bernie wins the nomination then the VP will be immensely important. Given that both men would potentially turn 80 while in office people will factor in who’d take over should either of them die

  27. I've long been a Bernie fan, since he was Mayor of BTV and I got to vote for him for Congress, BUT, the best choice now is Warren, for many reasons, from her analytic ability to the need for a woman (Not Hillary, thank god) as POTUS. The Veep then needs to be a thoughtful, articulate man of color, to balance the ticket for broad appeal. So Julian Castro. Biden would make a passable Sec'y of State – elder Statesman and all. Many of these other candidates would make GREAT cabinet choices, but holding down or taking new Senate seats – I'm looking at you, Hickenlooper, Beto and Bullock – is vitally important as well. Warren/Castro.

  28. This guy on the telephone is so lost in his thoughts. They should actually screen callers before they are given to David.
    This call was certainly cringeworthy to listen to.

  29. I think Bernie and Warren are the best bets because Trump won out of people feeling left alone by idling corporate democrats that do not take their problems seriously.
    Biden treats Trump like he is something that just happen as a random event while Bernie and Warren do take the concerns of the lower class seriously and show that they understand why Trump got elected. They treat him like the symptom of a problem they want to address which is why I think that progressives are the way to go instead of trying to meet in the middle with Republicans

  30. Fortunately, I thought about a possible ticket for both President and Vice-President. One of them is the possibility of Biden for President and Barrack Obama for Vice-president. If that was to happen, it would stick in the craw of the Republicans and I believe it would be a big winner!

  31. For what it's worth Sanders has to be the nominee backed up by Stacy Abrams. Ms. Abrams may not have had much experience on the national stage but she is sharp. She will learn the ropes in no time. She is also young enough so she will have a career after a stint as v.p. She has a great personality that connects with voters everywhere and is tough enough to keep the Senate in line if needs be. Lastly, being female and black helps too but probably not as much as you may think with white voters. It's a mixed blessing.

  32. WHOEVER WINS, DEMOCRATS NEED TO STICK TOGETHER, LIKE REPUKES WITH DUMB DONNIE, WILL BE HARD TO FIGHT WITH OUR PRESIDENT PUTIN, BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE 😏

  33. If my magic wand was in good shape…..I would zap the swamp clean and put every one of those
    2020 presidential candidates in the Whitehouse….collectively they ALL have some good visions for our
    Country….BUT…actually we could put a gold fish w/o water in the Whitehouse at the moment and it would succeed far better
    than that pitiful ass DONALD DUCK and MICKEY MOUSE. IJS. AS USUAL DAVID YOU ARE ALWAYS ON POINT G/J!!!!!

  34. BERNIE SANDERS / TULSI GABBARD  That's my wish list ticket. I would also except BERNIE SANDERS / LIZ WARREN. Groping Joe should go away.

  35. I feel sorry for whoever wins in 2020, for the huge mess that they have to clean up, that the orange slimeball made.

  36. The outcome of the 2020 election will be determined by Microsoft. They're installing "Election Guard" in 2/3 of all electronic voting machines. They encrypt the vote counts and the results, and also DECRYPT them.

  37. Who would I want to take over if Bernie’s health failed? Definitely Elizabeth Warren. Who would be a good tactical choice? Kamala Harris. They got those coasts covered, she was an earlyish supporter of Medicare for all, and I do like some diversity! (Although I am aware of her record which is why I would not want her to be president)

  38. I think Andrew Yang has the best chance of winning in 2020. Voter turnout would go up if people are excited to vote for someone instead of just voting for the person who you think can win. Andrew Yang appeals to a large amount of people on the political spectrum. Andrew Yang is a problem solver and he is the one who is most correctly identifying the problems of this country and has the best solutions. Go to any Andrew Yang video, especially long-form interviews and just look at the comments. Like others have said, if Andrew Yang can unite a YouTube Comment section, he can unite a country. And this country is feeling pretty divided right now.
    EDIT- changed a word so it makes more sense

  39. Not running (yet) but best Democrat presidential candidate to beat Trump — Michelle Obama. She is beloved, more respected than Oprah. I have to give credit for this idea to that really annoying filmmaker. Who shall remain nameless.

  40. Yang or Tulsi
    anything less is going to pretty much destroy the county

    automation

    you are all retards

    I mean wiped out!

  44. I’m gonna try to get my brother to vote. We live in Michigan, and he didn’t vote last time. He works at an Amazon warehouse, so I bet that I could convince him to vote for Sanders by talking about how Sanders made it so that my brother makes $15/hour.

  45. VP only makes a difference when that person is very popular or unpopular in their own right. That said, the strongest possible ticket would be with Warren and Sanders both on it. Personally, I think I might rather see Warren as Senate Majority Leader and Nina Turner as VP, but if you just want the best possible chance to beat Trump, it's with Warren/Sanders or vice versa.

  46. Unless one personally polls a large sampling of voters, there is no way to determine which Democrat 'can' beat Trump. Polls are fine until the MSM presents them through their biases.
