I Can’t Believe We’re Already Talking About the Democratic Nominations for 2020
It seems like only yesterday that we were watching the madness that was the 2016 election. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not judging. We got a ton of content out of that year. I can remember working late the night the results came in, sitting at my desk as the disbelief settled in that Donald Trump was going to be the next President of the United States. It was pretty wild – and now, we’re suddenly about halfway through his first term and are starting to shift gears to 2020. SBR Sports Picks recently released their odds for the 2020 Democratic nominations.

It’s insane how time flies, guys. I will tell you that much.
I don’t know if I’m ready. You know, that 2016 election took a toll on me. Hell, it felt like it took a toll on the entire country. Whether the media has brainwashed me or not, it feels like our country remains pretty divided. Personally, and fair warning, I’m a bit of a pessimist. I don’t think people will sort this out because I don’t think people want to sort this out. They like their Facebook arguments that change nothing because it makes their lives feel important.
I’m going on a tangent, aren’t I?
Okay, so as for the odds themselves…man, it’s early.
It’s incredibly hard to tell, but I think Sanders is the safest choice right now. There’s plenty of questions there, though. Namely, can he sustain another run?! How much did 2016 take out of him? Biden’s likability makes him an obvious candidate, but we still don’t really know how committed he is to the idea of being President.
Harris and Booker are two intriguing up-and-comers.
As for the long shots, I think it’s interesting to see just how much 2016 damaged Clinton. At this point, it seems impossible for her to run again. It’s way too soon to see another Obama make a run, but I do think there’s a bright future in politics for Michelle should she choose to go down that road. Finally, I can’t believe we’re still talking about Oprah.
Ultimately, if I’m putting money down now and actually want to take a gamble, I’m putting my money on Warren. She seems to be at the forefront of the party right now, but we’ll see. Time will tell.
At this stage in the game, it’s wide fuckin’ open.
