Democrats Speed Towards Contested Convention – And That Would Give Trump A 2020 Lock


Democrats are in a pickle, wouldn’t you
say? They know that whoever wins their 2020 primary,
has to go up against Donald Trump. President Trump has a stellar record, despite
overwhelming opposition and fake news. Democrats seem pretty worried about finding
someone that can beat him. They started with over 20 candidates. And even today, with the first primary vote
in less than a month, there is no real frontrunner. Biden is hardly their top contender, with
several others close behind. It’s possible we could have a contested
convention, the first in a long while. And that has huge implications for the 2020
race! From Real Clear Politics: While it is not likely the 2020 Democratic
nomination will be brokered in a backroom – rule changes have made that more difficult
– it is possible that the convention could be contested, which means it would require
more than one ballot to select a nominee… Despite forces working against it, a contested
convention with multiple ballots is possible. While such a thing hasn’t happened since
1952, unique circumstances surrounding this election have increased the odds. According to some reports, the weak 2020 field
might lead to a contested Democrat convention. Meaning, the party is unable to decide on
a clear candidate. That’s pretty bad because, according to
history, it spells the left’s doom. The last few times Democrats faced even the
rumor of a contested convention, they lost big time. That includes George McGovern, Jimmy Carter
(who lost re-election to Reagan), and Walter Mondale. Today, we don’t see a single clear “winner”
among the left’s 2020 candidates. Biden, Warren, Sanders, and even Buttigieg
struggle to come out on top. Does this mean the party will be split come
convention time? Will they be able to settle on a single candidate? Will that candidate stand a chance against
Donald Trump? I think you know the answer to that.
