Beto O'Rourke announces he's running for president in 2020

I'd guess he'll go to the top and likely be the candidate. He's a younger more Obama like candidate than Biden

 

He's also the Anti Trump

This is interesting:  O'Rourke came close to the vote of Cruz and it was not an increase in Hispanic nor youth vote - he got a good share of the White vote. So throw-in the minority and youth increased turnout of a presidential election and ====

 

 

Nate Cohn: “His relatively close loss is promising for the party because he did not take full advantage of the longer-term trends that might put it over the top sooner than later. His strength came almost exclusively from white voters, not from the growing Hispanic population in the state.”

 

“Mr. O’Rourke’s close result wasn’t because of an exceptional turnout that will be hard for other Democrats to repeat in 2020. Republican voters, defined as those who have participated in a recent Republican primary, turned out at a higher rate than Democratic ones. Neither the Hispanic nor youth voter share of the electorate was higher than it was in 2016, when President Trump won the state by nine points.”

 

“On the contrary, Democrats in 2020 can be expected to enjoy a more favorable turnout because presidential races tend to draw in more young and Hispanic voters.”

What is your idea of a good share of the white vote? 30%? That's what he got.

What state was THE republican state of the 1950s, 60, 70s and 80s?  During that time period, when one thought of what state represented republicans it was California.    Things change.  Democrats could have a popular Hispanic running for Senator and O'Rourke running for President.  Add to that:

 

"Texas is going to be ground zero for House seats pickup. Democrats have a chance to pickup 2-4 House seats, the biggest haul they can expect in any state this cycle."

 

O'rourke and Castor would mean Republicans would have to spend serious money defending the next republican state to flip democrat in the near future just as California did.   Texas Republicans have always been timid on immigration so as not to make that flip come early.  Trump has upset that mood.

If a marketing department designed a candidate to meet the overall demands of the country, it would be him. 

Yeah, just with a little bit too strong a touch of naivete and lack of executive experience.

Just poking fun at your political instincts. 

You mean the ones that predicted Obama over Hillary in 2008? Yeah, I’m not too worried about your opinion...

So did I.

 

But I thought it was obvious I was making a throwback to our positions before 2016 election. I mean we give each other on this board shit like this all the time. I was actually pretty tame. Lighten up.
