He lost his Senate Texas bid, but we’re pretty certain Beto O’Rourke could be elected president of Hollywood today if there were an election.
He’s said he’s not running in 2020 (he is), and now that the media has given him billions of dollars of airtime and plenty of puff pieces about his sweat, his skateboard, and his undeniable charisma, he’s starting to climb in the polls, now coming in at a distant third behind old white men Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are the only two prospective Democratic candidates to garner double-digit support in a 2020 run against Donald Trump.

Sorry, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren. And you too, Spartacus.
Three white guys. That’s funny

No more super old white dudes, thank you very much. And definitely no non-Democrats on the Dem ticket. Buh-bye BS Bernie

Beto is media-created hero, who is in reality a meathead.

Don’t tell that to the people in the comments who still don’t accept that the election’s officially over.

We’ll have you know that celebrity porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is one of those circus clowns, and he’s good at suing people. Scratch that, he’s bad at suing people.

That was just one poll; then there’s this:
2020 Dems: Beto No. 1, edges Harris, Warren, Biden https://t.co/CD6IQyltT6
— Paul Bedard (@SecretsBedard) November 12, 2018
Paul Bedard reports, “According to the online gambling website BetDSI, O’Rourke is at 5-1 odds, putting him in first place and ahead of Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, as well as former Vice President Joe Biden.”
First place? Not bad … but a whole lot of people gambled on O’Rourke and lost.
