Beto, Sanders & Biden
Who would beat Trump??
I don't think any of those would have much appeal to Indies and Mod Repubs who are sick of Trump and that is who they would need in their camp to win. I'm hoping Kasich will make a run as an Indie or challenge Trump in the Repub primary.

I wouldn't vote for Kasich. He's a Dem lite.

If the Democrats want to actually win, there is only one choice: Biden
Anyone else and they are being ideologues and not serious.
I'd be genuinely curious to see how the Biden nomination would go inside the party in the #MeToo era.

I'm not accusing him of any wrong-doing, he just comes off as a touchy-feely creepy old man. Granted that worked in the 2016 election cycle.

It all comes down to a choice: do they want a nominee who has a few flaws who will get more of the Midwest and Rustbelt to vote Democrat and can go toe to toe with Trump, or do they want a "woke" idealogue who will turn off moderates and will get destroyed by Trump in the debates. 2020 is not about who's loud fringe group will win. That will lead to more chaos. It will be about which side can inch their way toward recovery, because both sides are fractured and weak.

Whoever can get the silent moderates will win.

I'd vote for Kasich over Trump & Hillary, he'd be a good candidate if the goal was to get left leaners to vote red. But since it'll likely be Trump vs a Democrat, I think Biden is a safe choice, excluding the slight creepiness. I'd still vote Beto or Sanders vs Trump, but I'd be nervous they were the candidates. This all pending the special counsel of course. We may get president Pence :p

I would vote for neither. I don’t play the game of lesser of two evils. I cannot vote for a candidate that I do not support 100%.
If that was my two choices in a primary, I’d probably have to sit it out.
I can understand your positions on this and can't criticize even if I disagree. I felt the same way in 2016 with Trump and Clinton and that's why I wrote in Kasich. I view him as a conservative leaning moderate who seems to be focused on trying to unite a deeply divided country (probably an impossible task) and recognizing and willing to address the runaway debt crisis. He is an extreme longshot but from the potential field of candidates his values align the best with mine.
