    not a great chance given state of economy and the long list of accomplishments Trump can cite BUT...

    Amy Klobuchar is BY FAR, Trump's biggest threat, if she can make it through primaries.

    Joe Biden - nice guy but he has been tarnished by impeachment were he and his son were dragged through the mud. His gaffes, how he seemingly forgets things and his age are too many strikes against him. He really really looks too old and too weak.

    Buttigieg - well spoken, smart guy but not even 40 and gay. I have nothing against gays but i don't think America is ready to vote for a gay president. Unquestionably, many americans, will not feel good about saying they have a gay president. More importantly, is his youth and lack of experience... he really isn't ready and both of these will be big strikes against him

    Sanders - He could get the youth to turn out and there is energy behind him BUT, when it's all said and done, as people ponder 'What will actually happen if he becomes president?', people will not vote for him. Sanders will raise our taxes and try to decimate private insurance and over regulate, in all areas - banking, environment. He means well but far from a pragmatist, he's an ideological inflexible man. Millions of Americans in workforce are very happy with their insurance and the thought of all of it being replaced by some 'medicare for all plan' will scare the hell out of all these Americans. Who knows how disruptive his government takeover of insurance will be, that will be massively disruptive. Nobody wants higher taxes and people will be scared of what Sanders will do to the economy... which could be catastrophic when you think about all the things he wants to do. People will not vote him into office when it's all said and done. Sanders would actually not get anything done as both democrats and republicans will block his radical initiatives.. he would just be as divisive as trump if not much more.

    Bloomberg - he is already being exposed and flip flopping like there is no tomorrow. I don't see I'm going anywhere. This man has said things and held views that are going to be very difficult for him to explain and he even looks worse when he apologizes and claims he has changed his views, which every knows is a lie. He is a billionaire in a party that is anti-billionaire so... he isn't going anywhere

    Amy Klobuchar - Experienced, moderate, reasonable , rejects socialism, good temperament. Now we have a potential formidable opponent if she can survive primaries. She's not too old or feeble. She's nothing like Hilary who ran a campaign of hate, duplicity and incongruence. Hilary ran a terrible, negative campaign, basically - 'vote for me only because the other person is a loose cannon, racist, misogynist, bigot, authoritarian and i'm a woman, so vote for me. Oh and btw, his base are deplorables'. Amy isn't like this, far from it. I, as a Trump supporter, wouldn't be too worried if she wins, it would be lesser of many evils. I would for sure support Trump but if she wins, i wouldn't be losing any sleep over it, i think she can work with both republicans and democrats and can be pragmatic. Unlike Hilary, she can really get more of the women vote and they represent a large portion of electorate, i think over 50%.

    I agree with your analysis. I was just writing about the same thing on this thread: http://politicalforum.com/index.php...-of-crazy-plans.568181/page-2#post-1071432522

    I think Klobuchar-Gabbard would be a formidable opponent for Trump.

    I wouldn't be so sure. I really like what Im hearing from Bloomberg. And he has the resources and the inside knowledge to take on trump. I didn't know who I was going to support. But Bloomberg caught my attention. At this point he is my pick. And I'm a former Reagan Republican.

    Definitely a maybe. :)
