There’s a New 2020 Democratic Frontrunner, According to Donald Trump

But is this just wishful thinking on the part of the President?

It doesn’t seem to matter just how many hours of brutal political pageantry we have been forced to endure, as the Democrats appear no closer to picking a nominee for 2020 than they did months ago.

The lesser barnacles are being knocked off the ship as it steams toward Iowa, however.  Cory Booker, Julián Castro, and Marianne Williamson have all jumped ship over the course of the last few days with announcements that weren’t all that surprising at all.

This has meant that the top tier of candidates has not changed one bit, with only four candidates duking it out on top of the polls:  Former Vice President Joe Biden, Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Biden has been the de facto frontrunner from the moment that he entered the race, but a rekindling of the controversy surrounding he and his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine seems to be having some effect on his ability to hold onto the lead.

President Trump has certainly noticed.

President Trump’s re-election campaign is deeming Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders the indisputable frontrunner in the Democratic primary, as polling shows the Democratic socialist rising in Iowa just weeks before the caucuses kick off the nominating season.

“There is no mistaking that Bernie Sanders has to be considered the frontrunner now,” a senior Trump campaign official told Fox News on Monday.

The Des Moines Register over the weekend published the results of its latest poll showing Sanders leading in the state. That poll has Sanders with 20 percent, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 17 percent, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 16 percent and former Vice President Joe Biden at 15 percent.

The official indicated the Des Moines Register poll, combined with Sanders’ response to the situation in Iran, is why there has been an uptick in attacks on Sanders from the president and his campaign.

Sanders would undoubtedly be the preferred matchup for Trump during the general election, considering what an easy target Democratic Socialism becomes when inserted into the national conversation.
