6 to the Power of 20

Swalwell Moulton Ryan

20 Days Ago…

I’ve continued the Power Ranking of the 20 Democratic Candidates for the 2020 Democratic Primary to be concluded on its 20th iteration the day of the 2020 Iowa Caucus.

Since the last list… Pete Buttigeig has continued an increase in popularity, polling and more importantly name ID and pronunciation… Two members of congress from the House of Representatives have entered the race, Eric Swalwell of Califronia and Tim Ryan of Ohio… Where Elizabeth Warren has struggled with fundraising, Kamala Harris released her fundraising numbers from the first quarter and is doing quite well… Meanwhile Bernie Sanders has promised to release his tax returns soon… Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is waiting to enter the race, has gotten into hot water with multiple accounts of women who have reported being made to feel uncomfortable around him…

Reminder, this is a “power ranking” and not a list of my favorites in the order I’d like them. But taking in the news cycle over the last 20 days and other pertinent data, this ranking is just a snapshot of where I think the candidates are and where the voters are in their likelihood to select them as the Democratic Nominee for the 2020 Presidential Race.

So don’t be mad at me. Tell your candidate to get better.

So without further adieu…
