So right now we have at least 21 declared candidates for the Democratic nomination for President in 2020. Â They vary in age from the youngest at 37 (Mayor Pete) to the oldest at 88 (Senator Mike Gravel). Â It’s probably the most diverse crowd ever, but still more than half of them are white men. Â As new coverage goes, the white men tend to get the most coverage. Â It’s hard to put into words, but yet it was brilliantly tweeted, as evidenced below:
*Reporters watch Beto Oâ€™Rourke play shirtless volleyball for six straight hours*
Reporter: â€This is fantastic, but I wish these candidates would talk about the issues more.â€
*Liz Warren pulls up a truckload full of policy proposals and honks, but nobody even notices*

Couldn’t have said it more perfectly, right?
The good thing is, that polling is showing that Democrats are ahead of Trump. Â In multiple head-to-head matchups, Trump is beaten more often than not. Â And while Trump’s campaign manager wants to try and flip New Mexico, Minnesota, Colorado, and Nevada (of which they have very little chance – but don’t think they won’t resort to cheating and/or dirty tricks), the thing that they don’t tell you is that right now, Biden beats Trump in the great state of Texas. Â Yes, we’ve been talking about Texas turning purple over the last few years. Â But we seem to be at a point where Trump is so unpopular that we even might be able to flip Texas.
And all I know is this: Â I’m personally for Mayor Pete, because it would be good to see an unabashed intellectual in the White House again (I miss Obama). Â But whomever ends up being the nominee is who I’m going to vote for. Â Period.
