With another big debate coming – is it time to the thin the field as the DNC looks toward Trump and 2020?October 9, 20192 min read
The Democratic field has narrowed substantially from the summer, but from the initial offering of more than two dozen candidates, each vying to be the one to face off with Donald Trump next November – there’s still a lot of winnowing to be done.
And with 12 candidates taking the stage in Westville, Ohio the expectations will be high for everyone.
- How many candidates need to accept reality and abandon the race?
- Is a field this large hindering DNC chances at victory in 2020?
- What will it take to strive up the polls and survive for another day on the hustings?
- And of the prominent candidates – who is on the bubble and who needs to land a knockout punch to emerge as the true frontrunner?
There will be a lot of speculation, coverage and punditry leading up to this debate – and that’s where our experts can help.
