17 to the Power of 20

Joe Biden Rallies Union Members for Conor Lamb

20 Days Ago…

I’ve continued the Power Ranking of 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… Major candidates like Beto O’Rourke have exited the race… While other candidates like Deval Patrick have officially entered the race. Other candidates like Michael Bloomberg has made strong indications that he plans to enter… Pete Buttigeig have made strong pushes in polling in Iowa, tightening the distance between the top tier of candidates…

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…
