    Democrat candidates

    For the leftists and moderates here, and for the conservatives who see themselves possibly voting for a Democrat for president: if the election was tomorrow and you could pick the Democratic candidate, which Democrat would you prefer? Feel free to make a distinction between who you'd ideally prefer and who you'd settle for with the best chance of beating Trump, if there's a difference. If you have ranked choices (say, top three), feel free to mention that as well.

    This is purely for my own curiosity.
    I DENOUNCE DONALD J. TRUMP AND ALL HIS IMMORAL ACTS.

    I would pick Elizabeth Warren, because the election would be very entertaining and Trump would beat her by a mile.

    I like Tulsi Gabbard, if any one is asking...

    Andrew Yang would be my candidate if I were voting that way

    Tim Ryan and Steve Bullock were pretty vocal.

    Tim Ryan - “Right now, if you want to come into the country, you should at least ring the doorbell,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said, adding that the president could still separate families even if unauthorized immigration was decriminalized. “We’ve got to get rid of Donald Trump, but you don’t decriminalize people just walking into the United States.”

    Montana Gov. Steve Bullock said decriminalizing unauthorized immigration and giving health care to undocumented immigrants — an idea supported by candidates including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — was “playing into Donald Trump’s hands.”
    “The challenge isn’t that it’s a criminal offense to cross the border,” Bullock said. “The challenge is that Donald Trump is president and using this to rip families apart. A sane immigration system needs a sane leader, and we can do that without decriminalizing [or] providing health care for everyone.”

    They are getting to the point where they need to stop with the pie in the sky leftwing promises and get back to reality if they want to win the nomination.
