Agreed, it’s way too early for anyone (who isn’t planning on running) to be thinking about the 2020 election, but that hasn’t stopped some people from sizing up the field as it now stands.
As Twitchy reported back in mid-October, the first Granite State poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire, put Bernie Sanders on top of the Democratic pile for 2020 at 31 percent, followed by Joe Biden at 24 percent and Elizabeth Warren at only 13 percent.
For its part, The Hill interviewed around a dozen prominent Democrats to have them size up the next primary field, and once again, Bernie Sanders stood out, on top of Joe Biden in second and Elizabeth Warren, who persisted in coming in third.

This is like a ‘make-up call’ from the DNC. They cheated Bernie in 2016 so now it’s ‘his turn.’
That’s worked out so well for them in the past. https://t.co/ZbCRZMeXKV

He does have the advantage of not actually being a Democrat, so that’s one thing.
The socialist that isn't even a Democrat that owns three houses and whose wife in under investigation for fraud… https://t.co/YUshVfaWgm

This is why they can no longer call themselves democrats. They are the Socialist Party of America. Just admit it people. https://t.co/imNU2GRfRq

Just stop. Can we please have a candidate born later than the 1950s? My patience has run out waiting for the generational shift in leadership that our country needs. https://t.co/uPfEdhAPxD

All Dems have to do to win the next election is put forth a somewhat sane, non-communist, somewhat toward the "center" candidate . . . but no, they'll put forth Bernie lol. https://t.co/36plj93e50
