It is true that just about any of the Democratic Party candidates could beat Trump now, but that could change by November 2020.
Politico, January 29, 2019: Poll shows trouble for Trump, Dem voters undecided on early 2020 field
"The survey found that 56 percent of all respondents would “definitely not vote for" Trump to be reelected, compared with 28 percent who said they would “definitely” vote for Trump and 14 percent who said they would consider voting for him".
Among the Democrats and Democratic leaning polled, "Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris of California split the top billing, though they garnered only 9 percent and 8 percent of the vote, respectfully. Among the 44 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Trump both received 4 percent, while 3 percent volunteered former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke."
Joe Biden's 9 percent is hardly a mandate. He is the front runner only because of name recognition. I doubt that many people know what his agenda is. Kamala Harris's 8 percent is "good" considering that she just entered the race and has had little name recognition until now.
But Bernie Sanders has lots of name recognition, and he is only polling at 4 percent of Democrats. That says something.
I don't think the country is ready for another Bernie Sanders "people's revolution" style campaign. If Clinton is not welcome in the Democratic Party camp of nominees neither should Sanders, who right now is not even a member of the Democratic Party. He is officially an Independent.
