The 2020 U.S. Presidential Race: A Cheat Sheet

The 2020 U.S. Presidential Race: A Cheat SheetIf a candidate leaves a primary and no one was ever supporting him, did he really leave it? And for that matter, was he even ever really a candidate?These are a few of the philosophical questions raised by John Hickenlooper’s exit from the Democratic race, perhaps best pondered with some of the finest cannabis in the Rocky Mountain State, which legalized weed during his governorship; or if that’s not your thing, maybe a pint from Wynkoop, the Denver brewery Hickenlooper co-founded.But enough philosophical navel-gazing and on to practical concerns: As Hickenlooper announces his decision to leave the race on Thursday, he faces the concrete question of and whether to jump into the U.S. Senate race in Colorado against Republican incumbent Cory Gardner.Hickenlooper’s departure is unlikely to leave too many voters without a champion in the race. In the latest Hill/HarrisX poll, he drew…

A Nation of Pundits

A Nation of PunditsPORTSMOUTH, N.H.—Ask any New Hampshire Democrats which of the nearly two dozen candidates they’re voting for in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, which is still six months away, and the reply usually isn’t a name, but a list—a few candidates they like, perhaps, or maybe a couple they’ve ruled out.Ask them what factor is most important in their choice, however, and the response is instantaneous and nearly universal, right down to the words they use: “Who can beat Trump.”These are the electability voters, and they are now driving the Democratic primary. They’re the biggest reason—perhaps even the only reason—that former Vice President Joe Biden remains atop the field: Whether they’re correct or not, rank-and-file Democrats believe Biden has the best chance of defeating President Donald Trump next fall, and that—more than health care, climate change, immigration, or any other single policy issue—is what they care about above all.“Whoever…

Beto O’Rourke Proposes Plan to Punish Tech Companies for Failing to Censor Hate Spee...

Beto O’Rourke Proposes Plan to Punish Tech Companies for Failing to Censor Hate Spee…Democratic presidential hopeful and former congressman Beto O’Rourke announced on Friday that he would like to remove legal protections from tech companies if they fail to police hate speech online. As with previous attempts to interfere with internet speech, the move would be an assault on the First Amendment. O’Rourke joins a growing chorus of lawmakers and political activists who would like to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms from facing lawsuits over potentially defamatory statements posted to those platforms by users. The Texas Democrat sees such protection as untenable in the wake of recent mass shootings, such as this month’s incident in El Paso, which the shooter carried out after posting an anti-immigrant diatribe online. “We must connect the dots between internet communities providing a platform for…

Even Joe Biden’s Campaign Can’t Think of a Good Reason to Vote for Joe Biden

Even Joe Biden’s Campaign Can’t Think of a Good Reason to Vote for Joe BidenCritics are responding harshly to comments made by Dr. Jill Biden Monday in which she claimed that even if Democratic primary voters prefer the policies of other 2020 candidates over those of her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, they should vote for Biden anyway because he’s more electable. Dr. Biden made comments to that effect on Monday in a campaign appearance in Manchester, N.H., reported first by NBC News. “Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, healthcare than Joe is,” Dr. Biden said, “but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘Okay, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.” Dr. Jill Biden urges voters to consider her husband’s electability,…
