The main goal of the Democrat Party going into 2020 is defeating President Trump.
But with a series of wins coming Trump’s way, that is looking less and less likely.
And Democrats just got news proving they can’t beat Trump in 2020.
The Democrat field for President continues to narrow.
At this point, the three top contenders are Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders.
One of the top issues that will decide who ends up as the Democrat nominee is healthcare.
And between the three, there are a lot of differences.
For one, the only candidate with a coherent plan is Bernie Sanders.
His Medicare for All plan is extreme, being outright socialism and costing upwards of $32.6 trillion, but at least he champions it.
As for Warren, she has supported Sanders’ plan in the past but isn’t directly stating what her current plan is.
And Joe Biden also doesn’t have much of a plan but has previously stated that Medicare for All is an attempt to undo Obamacare.
But regardless of where they stand, it is clear where voters stand.
A new Monmouth University poll shows that only twenty-two percent of Democrats said that they would want to eliminate private insurance for Medicare for All, which Sanders’ plan calls for.
The poll also shows that fifty-three percent of Democrats prefer a system to either allow Americans to opt into Medicare or keep their private coverage.
So it is clear that Medicare for All is not a popular idea.
Despite that, many left-wing groups are still pushing it to the forefront of the debate.
Kelly Coogan-Gehr, a director for advocacy at National Nurses United, a top labor union fighting for Medicare for All, makes it clear they will demand Democrats answer on where they stand.
“Up and down the ticket you will see them forced to respond to Medicare for All,” says Coogan-Gehr. “People will hold their feet to the fire like never before.”
This is putting many Democrats in a very tough position.
That is why so few Democrats running are willing to directly state where they stand.
And while the main focus appears to be on the Presidential election, there are also many Democrats simply up for re-election that are avoiding answering questions about it.
Sens. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Doug Jones of Alabama, and Gary Peters of Michigan continue to refuse to state their position.
But as they get closer to their elections, far-left groups are almost certainly going to hammer them on it.
And the only person who appears to benefit from this is President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
It is clear that Medicare for All is not a popular position among the general public.
Even in the Democrat Party, there is intense division.
If a candidate like Bernie Sanders gets the Democrat nomination, it will be extremely simple for President Trump to destroy him.
He will just need to point out that his plans call for the elimination of private healthcare.
Do you think President Trump will win in 2020?
