Seems Democrats may have the same ‘old rich white person’ problem in 2020 that they had in 2016. Interestingly enough, the main pushback candidates like Joe Biden are receiving is coming from people in their own party.
Well, they call themselves Democrats but we’re pretty sure they’re Socialists …
Take a look at this.

Yikes! Check out that laundry list of crazy.
Democrats created a monster, and now they can’t control it.

I mean this sincerely. There is NO HOPE of Medicare for All or anything else if McConnell is leader. The Democratic nominee cannot just defeat Trump. He or she must win a landslide and elect 3 Democratic senators in Colorado, Alabama and Arizona. These aren't progressive states!

THEY CAN’T ALLOW ANYONE TO VOTE AGAINST THEM!
Imagine having ideas so great you have to force them on your fellow Americans.
So in 2020; Puerto Rico will not become a state? Illegal Aliens and Dreamers will not be made citizens? There will be no border security? Sounds to me like the same politics just different candidate

We cannot have another Hillary situation. We must not choose a candidate based on their amount of experience. Republicans adore @realDonaldTrump because he supports their ideas. We need a nominee like @PeteButtigieg that we all can support, whether we are centrist or socialist.

I’d support him over Trump if it comes to that, but he has such a failed history with the war on drugs that destroyed communities of color. And even recently, he was in a video showing how out of touch you are with medical cannabis and his views haven’t changed.

Thought it was libertarians who were all about legal marijuana?
The @TheDemocrats new HRC has entered the race. Have they learned anything from 2016?

No, no they have not.

Ouch, Uncle Joe.
But on that note, plenty of Biden supporters were none-too-pleased with the Justice Dems giving their guy a hard time:
Biden is the only one on the left side of the aisle that I would even consider voting for with all the ridiculous bs the rest of the candidates are trying to push right now.

Your platform is a losing one in 2020. Please stop or we’ll get another 4 years of #DerangedDonald

It's probably worth noting that while this group, Justice Democrats, calls Biden "out-of-touch" with the "center of energy" in the Democratic Party, only 26 of the 79 candidates it endorsed last year won their primaries, and only 7 of those went on to win the general election. pic.twitter.com/kHPsqgrp35

So maybe not necessarily a deal breaker … either way, 2020 is gonna be fun!
