Yesterday, President Trump Tweeted the names of the two candidates he believes will be battling it out head-to-head at the end of the Democratic nomination process. Both happen to be the early leaders in the polls. Both are also the idea candidates for the President to take on next November.
I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists to run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)! I look forward to facing whoever it may be. May God Rest Their Soul!

Most polls show Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leading former Vice President Joe Biden with the rest of the pack far behind the two. But polls this early are meaningless. As 2016’s presidential election showed us, polls may be meaningless regardless of how close they are to the election.
More importantly, we haven’t actually seen the inevitable movement in the polls and popularity of the candidates. Just as Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and Ben Carson had their turns at the top of the leaderboard in 2015, so too will we see candidates rise and fall for the Democrats this year. That’s the nature of the beast of politics, especially when it comes to presidential elections.
There’s something notable about Biden and Sanders that would make them ideal candidates to go against the President, at least from the President’s perspective. They’re both older Caucasian males. One of the challenges the President will face if neither of them win the nomination is that most of the other candidates have some degree of presidential uniqueness about them. Many are women. Some are minorities. One is homosexual. They all pose a stark contrast with the President.
Sanders and Biden are demographically identical to the President and therefore wouldn’t pose as much of a threat as one of the other candidates would.
The best thing that could happen for President Trump’s reelection efforts would be for him to go head-to-head with Caucasian male who’s older than he is. Whether that’s Biden or Sanders, it behooves the President to root for them.
