Beto O'Rourke seen as a top contender in 2020: poll

ㅤ”O’Rourke, who earned a groundswell of national attention in 2018, was ranked third with 7 percent, garnering more support than other frequently touted potential challengers.
ㅤThe outgoing Democratic congressman lost his bid last month to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) by a surprisingly narrow margin in a deep-red state. O’Rourke is now leaving the door open to a White House bid.
ㅤ’Beto is the kind of fresh face who could shake up the Democratic race,’ said Mark Penn, co-director of Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll. ‘He starts off by blowing past some well-known names. Biden loses support upon his entry.'”

ㅤô¿ô …Harris would certainly need to bow out or risk starting a race war within the Dem party.

FINALLY! The Democrats Have A Candidate That Can Knock Off Trump!

ㅤô¿ô …The title is meant to be satire. Unfortunately it is not. But the candidate is not John Kerry. It’s Beto O’Rourke. Beto has so many things going for him that I don’t see how Beto could lose:

1) Beto can win Texas in the electoral college.

2) Beto is a White male whose district is 80% Hispanic.

3) Beto will be popular with young voters because he is only 46 years old.

4) Beto was born in El Paso so he can claim first hand experience with illegal immigration.

5) Unlike the rest of the Dem hopefuls, Beto hasn’t achieved sufficient notoriety in Congress to be viewed as a Washington insider. As observed in recent history, insiders are destined to lose.

6) Hollywood is falling in love with Beto.

7) Obama is already praising Beto.

8) Even though Beto spouts progressive rhetoric, he will likely turn out to be a conservative Dem. For example, Beto voted against DACA. Hell. I myself am sick of Trump’s lies not accomplishing anything. I might even vote for Beto.

The future doesn’t look good for the GOP.

Obama says Beto O'Rourke reminds him of himself

ㅤô¿ô …Keep reminding yourself that everything good that’s said about Beto O’Rourke is bullshit. The only thing that counts is Beto would likely win Texas in the 2020 presidential election.

Beto O'Rourke favored in 2020 betting lines, gambling site shows

ㅤ”BetDSI released betting lines Monday that ranked Mr. O’Rourke as the person to beat following his failed bid to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in Texas, giving him +500 odds of capturing his party’s nomination.
ㅤ’With the amount of publicity the Texas race received, as well as the media’s affection with O’Rourke, there’s been a steady stream of bets on Beto in 2020,’ said Brent Corobotuic, head linesman at BetDSI.
ㅤMr. O’Rourke is followed by Sens. Kamala Harris of California (+550) and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (+800) as well as former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Sen. Bernard Senders of Vermont, both of whom come in at +1,000.”

ㅤô¿ô …There is sound logic to a ticket of O’Rourke (TX) and Sherrod Brown (OH). Winning Texas and Ohio would deliver 47 electoral votes that the Dems did not have in 2016. Add those votes to what Clinton won in 2016 and presto…Beto becomes the President in 2020.

Beto O’Rourke: Senate campaign not a referendum on Donald Trump

ㅤô¿ô …Beto’s assessment will be generally true for all midterm elections. Healthcare remains one of the major concerns of all Americans. By anyone’s measure, Congressional Republicans are responsible for not making any improvements to healthcare. The people saw the Republicans’ vendetta against Obamacare at its worst.
ㅤThe Dems and the media can say “Trumpcare” all they want. But the people know better. If Republicans lose seats in Congress, they have themselves to blame. Perhaps the GOP deserves the loss.
