10 to the Power of 20

DemDebate 2020

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 … Elizabeth Warren continued to surge ahead and Buttigeig has faced some harsh criticism from back home… Joe Biden has caught criticism for comments he made in regards to segregationalist with sharp response to Cory Booker who has spoken out against him… And of course the first Democratic Debate event of the 2020 Presidential cycle has just finished with a few candidates smashing expectations and energizing their campaigns, while some are left questioning the strength of their campaign… And the field has given me a margin of error or 5 with the entrance of Joe Sestak as the 25th announced candidate.

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…
