BERMAN It is almost ░░░░░░░░ that Democrats will field ░░░░░░░░ largest list of presidential ░░░░░░░░ that Democrats ever have ░░░░░░░░ that s all going ░░░░░░░░ begin now 2020 is ░░░░░░░░ So who is best ░░░░░░░░ to challenge President Trump ░░░░░░░░ s Chris Cillizza and ░░░░░░░░ Enten they have their ░░░░░░░░ 2020 power rankings They ░░░░░░░░ gone through and they ░░░░░░░░ ranked them We couldn ░░░░░░░░ book Cillizza but we ░░░░░░░░ have Harry Enten ENTEN ░░░░░░░░ couldn t get up ░░░░░░░░ early BERMAN We do ░░░░░░░░ Harry here So Harry ░░░░░░░░ s get The Forecast ░░░░░░░░ Give us your top ░░░░░░░░ list This is based ░░░░░░░░ polling and money and ░░░░░░░░ reporting political activity behind ░░░░░░░░ scenes ENTEN Sure Right ░░░░░░░░ re still a very ░░░░░░░░ ways away from the ░░░░░░░░ Caucus Well not that ░░░░░░░░ away So we re ░░░░░░░░ that statistically inclined yet ░░░░░░░░ there s a secret ░░░░░░░░ that we re using ░░░░░░░░ put on some indecipherable ░░░░░░░░ sauce And our secret ░░░░░░░░ suggests that we re ░░░░░░░░ to count it down ░░░░░░░░ Casey Kasem used to ░░░░░░░░ in the good olden ░░░░░░░░ Now at number 10 ░░░░░░░░ Gillibrand She s obviously ░░░░░░░░ junior senator from the ░░░░░░░░ of New York She ░░░░░░░░ a number of things ░░░░░░░░ for her She has ░░░░░░░░ large New York media ░░░░░░░░ She has the most ░░░░░░░░ Trump record of any ░░░░░░░░ States senator She s ░░░░░░░░ woman And keep in ░░░░░░░░ that women won in ░░░░░░░░ numbers in 2018 Democratic ░░░░░░░░ That being said she ░░░░░░░░ a number of flaws ░░░░░░░░ instance she came out ░░░░░░░░ against Al Franken which ░░░░░░░░ lot of progressives hold ░░░░░░░░ her Keep on moving ░░░░░░░░ ll talk about a ░░░░░░░░ who s in the ░░░░░░░░ Julian Castro who comes ░░░░░░░░ at number nine Look ░░░░░░░░ s the first in ░░░░░░░░ we know he s ░░░░░░░░ so that is a ░░░░░░░░ to have him on ░░░░░░░░ list if nothing else ░░░░░░░░ Exploratory committee ENTEN He ░░░░░░░░ an exploratory committee sure ░░░░░░░░ I m exploring going ░░░░░░░░ get lunch later today ░░░░░░░░ m definitely eating lunch ░░░░░░░░ I m eating I ░░░░░░░░ t know But yes ░░░░░░░░ s definitely jumping in ░░░░░░░░ he s a Latino ░░░░░░░░ was in the Obama ░░░░░░░░ He ran HUD He ░░░░░░░░ an interesting character but ░░░░░░░░ know I think in ░░░░░░░░ year of the woman ░░░░░░░░ m a little suspect ░░░░░░░░ having too many men ░░░░░░░░ the upper tier And ░░░░░░░░ than that who is ░░░░░░░░ I think a lot ░░░░░░░░ people might get him ░░░░░░░░ with his brother Joaquin ░░░░░░░░ if you watched his ░░░░░░░░ video I think it ░░░░░░░░ a little to be ░░░░░░░░ HILL Also interesting that ░░░░░░░░ dipped here you know ░░░░░░░░ after we get that ░░░░░░░░ but he s actually ░░░░░░░░ in your rankings ENTEN ░░░░░░░░ he actually has dipped ░░░░░░░░ our rankings And part ░░░░░░░░ that we ll get ░░░░░░░░ a little bit later ░░░░░░░░ But it might be ░░░░░░░░ fellow Texan which is ░░░░░░░░ of this HILL Ah ░░░░░░░░ ENTEN Sherrod Brown who ░░░░░░░░ the senior senator from ░░░░░░░░ state of Ohio Look ░░░░░░░░ you want to win ░░░░░░░░ the Midwest there may ░░░░░░░░ be a better man ░░░░░░░░ this guy When all ░░░░░░░░ Democrats were losing statewide ░░░░░░░░ year in Ohio he ░░░░░░░░ by 7 percentage points ░░░░░░░░ is a state Donald ░░░░░░░░ ran away with in ░░░░░░░░ So if Democrats want ░░░░░░░░ play this is an ░░░░░░░░ state for an interesting ░░░░░░░░ for them I will ░░░░░░░░ out though another white ░░░░░░░░ I m very suspect ░░░░░░░░ that this year going ░░░░░░░░ a Democratic primary with ░░░░░░░░ doing well and the ░░░░░░░░ American base of the ░░░░░░░░ Party I m not ░░░░░░░░ it s the time ░░░░░░░░ nominate a white man ░░░░░░░░ Klobuchar number seven She ░░░░░░░░ dipped a little bit ░░░░░░░░ we ll get into ░░░░░░░░ little bit why other ░░░░░░░░ have risen recently But ░░░░░░░░ Midwestern senator She won ░░░░░░░░ 24 percentage points in ░░░░░░░░ She wins easily in ░░░░░░░░ Midwest And more than ░░░░░░░░ she s right next ░░░░░░░░ to Iowa But that ░░░░░░░░ a little bit boring ░░░░░░░░ And more than that ░░░░░░░░ doesn t have that ░░░░░░░░ of a record Number ░░░░░░░░ Bernie Sanders Same ranking ░░░░░░░░ we had Look he ░░░░░░░░ gotten over 40 percent ░░░░░░░░ the Democratic primary vote ░░░░░░░░ 2016 He has a ░░░░░░░░ within the party He ░░░░░░░░ the infrastructure in place ░░░░░░░░ being said a very ░░░░░░░░ guy And if you ░░░░░░░░ at we spoke about ░░░░░░░░ I think it was ░░░░░░░░ week among Iowa Democratic ░░░░░░░░ they re a little ░░░░░░░░ of nominating an older ░░░░░░░░ BERMAN And maybe not ░░░░░░░░ much the outsider anymore ░░░░░░░░ gets us to our ░░░░░░░░ five right now which ░░░░░░░░ really interesting ENTEN Our ░░░░░░░░ five Right Number five ░░░░░░░░ Warren who has dipped ░░░░░░░░ our rankings but is ░░░░░░░░ in the top five ░░░░░░░░ I think she s ░░░░░░░░ a rough few months ░░░░░░░░ with the DNA test ░░░░░░░░ didn t exactly go ░░░░░░░░ way I think she ░░░░░░░░ it would She was ░░░░░░░░ up against Donald Trump ░░░░░░░░ it seemed like she ░░░░░░░░ that battle More than ░░░░░░░░ she didn t have ░░░░░░░░ favorable polling numbers in ░░░░░░░░ home state Yes she ░░░░░░░░ by a wide margin ░░░░░░░░ her re election but ░░░░░░░░ came in under Hillary ░░░░░░░░ s margin I think ░░░░░░░░ s trouble going ahead ░░░░░░░░ four Cory Booker Cory ░░░░░░░░ I mean if you ░░░░░░░░ been following politics for ░░░░░░░░ while right Cory Booker ░░░░░░░░ someone a name that ░░░░░░░░ ve known the former ░░░░░░░░ of Newark His detractors ░░░░░░░░ would call him a ░░░░░░░░ neo liberal That s ░░░░░░░░ word you know and ░░░░░░░░ put in quotes and ░░░░░░░░ s big and scary ░░░░░░░░ he s actually had ░░░░░░░░ pretty anti Trump record ░░░░░░░░ gets his name out ░░░░░░░░ the press pretty well ░░░░░░░░ s very personable More ░░░░░░░░ that in the state ░░░░░░░░ New Hampshire Ray Buckley ░░░░░░░░ the chairman up there ░░░░░░░░ hey there s no ░░░░░░░░ who did more for ░░░░░░░░ party in this midterm ░░░░░░░░ than Cory Booker did ░░░░░░░░ New Hampshire is of ░░░░░░░░ a very important state ░░░░░░░░ Biden number three Look ░░░░░░░░ s led in all ░░░░░░░░ these polls He s ░░░░░░░░ in all of them ░░░░░░░░ again and he s ░░░░░░░░ the vice former vice ░░░░░░░░ to the most popular ░░░░░░░░ in the Democratic Party ░░░░░░░░ another old white man ░░░░░░░░ we re a little ░░░░░░░░ BERMAN And leading in ░░░░░░░░ polls has a lot ░░░░░░░░ do with name recognition ░░░░░░░░ brings us don t ░░░░░░░░ it away yet the ░░░░░░░░ two And this is ░░░░░░░░ it gets really interesting ░░░░░░░░ This is where it ░░░░░░░░ really interesting Beto O ░░░░░░░░ who was at number ░░░░░░░░ has come all the ░░░░░░░░ up to number two ░░░░░░░░ think he s the ░░░░░░░░ name the biggest jump ░░░░░░░░ our list What s ░░░░░░░░ on with Beto O ░░░░░░░░ Look they had a ░░░░░░░░ org poll straw poll ░░░░░░░░ said you know progressives ░░░░░░░░ throughout this country he ░░░░░░░░ in at number one ░░░░░░░░ actually beat Bernie Sanders ░░░░░░░░ got I believe 78 ░░░░░░░░ of the vote last ░░░░░░░░ around in that moveon ░░░░░░░░ poll when they endorsed ░░░░░░░░ More than that he ░░░░░░░░ shown an ability to ░░░░░░░░ money Nearly 80 million ░░░░░░░░ his Texas Senate race ░░░░░░░░ has shown an ability ░░░░░░░░ get young people very ░░░░░░░░ excited about politics And ░░░░░░░░ were mentioning to me ░░░░░░░░ air I think that ░░░░░░░░ part of the reason ░░░░░░░░ Julian Castro got in ░░░░░░░░ race so early is ░░░░░░░░ he is making people ░░░░░░░░ move move BERMAN I ░░░░░░░░ it s the main ░░░░░░░░ I think Beto is ░░░░░░░░ the race I think ░░░░░░░░ s the one who ░░░░░░░░ Castro to jump in ░░░░░░░░ think he s the ░░░░░░░░ who has the Bernie ░░░░░░░░ most nervous saying things ░░░░░░░░ about Beto O Rourke ░░░░░░░░ may be driving the ░░░░░░░░ ENTEN Exactly He is ░░░░░░░░ the narrative in the ░░░░░░░░ going It s still ░░░░░░░░ and that s part ░░░░░░░░ the reason why he ░░░░░░░░ not actually number one ░░░░░░░░ Harris remains our number ░░░░░░░░ Look she s in ░░░░░░░░ She has the big ░░░░░░░░ market She had she ░░░░░░░░ appeal to African American ░░░░░░░░ She has a very ░░░░░░░░ record And she sort ░░░░░░░░ checks off two boxes ░░░░░░░░ Americans and women who ░░░░░░░░ nominated in record numbers ░░░░░░░░ 2020 But of course ░░░░░░░░ such a large field ░░░░░░░░ would still bet on ░░░░░░░░ not being the nominee ░░░░░░░░ if there s one ░░░░░░░░ I was forced to ░░░░░░░░ it would be her ░░░░░░░░ All right How about ░░░░░░░░ BERMAN How about that ░░░░░░░░ ENTEN I used every ░░░░░░░░ of the five and ░░░░░░░░ half minutes you given ░░░░░░░░ me BERMAN You certainly ░░░░░░░░ using the top ten ░░░░░░░░ You really did You ░░░░░░░░ don t know what ░░░░░░░░ re having for lunch ░░░░░░░░ That will be later ░░░░░░░░ Maybe John and I ░░░░░░░░ have lunch together Erica ░░░░░░░░ can come too BERMAN ░░░░░░░░ m HILL Thank you ░░░░░░░░ the invitation BERMAN I ░░░░░░░░ booked for the next ░░░░░░░░ to be clear Harry ░░░░░░░░ you very much.”
