11 to the Power of 20

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… Kamala Harris and Joe Biden has continued to spar as the polling between the top candidates of Biden, Harris, Warren and Sanders tighten… Joe Biden has finally apologized for his promotion of state’s rights and segregationist… Beto O’Rourke owned up to his family’s having owned slaves. And as the field has been set for the second Democratic Debate… the first candidate, Eric Swalwell has dropped out, while a 26th candidate, Tom Steyer has announced… Seth Moulton has received the biggest endorsement so far, in proportion to his polling, from General Stanley McCrystal.

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…
