Knowles: 2020 Democrat Party Presidential Field Is Looking Pretty White

Remember the old line about the parties switching in the 1960s? Well, why then does the Democrat Party today seem to prefer white guys for their presidential nomination in 2020? Michael Knowles takes a look at some recent polling data that suggests exactly that on Wednesday's episode of "The Michael Knowles Show."

"Democrats have looked ahead to 2020, and they only want white guys. They don’t want women, not black guys, not Hispanic people, nope! Only white guys," said Knowles.

"There was a poll put out by a group called Democracy for America," he explained. "This was a major poll, this a poll of 94,000 progressives, self-identified progressives. Who is the number one choice for 2020? Oh, it’s not Kamala, oh no no. It’s not Cory ‘Spartacus’ Booker, no no no no. It is Bernie Sanders."

"The next closest competitor was Joe Biden, also a white guy," he continued. "But Bernie got three times as many votes as Joe Biden. Blew it out of the water. So number two was Biden, and number three: Beto O’Rourke. Now, you might be confused. You’d say, with a name like Beto, that’s not a white guy. Actually, it is a white guy. His name is Robert Francis O'Rourke. He is entirely Irish. He is not at all Mexican. So the first three guys, white guys. The first two guys: old white guys."

Knowles pointed out that it is not until number four that you get to Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, joking that "you actually can trace gradations of white all the way down to Kamala Harris."

"Only when you get to Kamala Harris do you get anything even resembling a racial minority," he said. "Which again, I wouldn't even care about, but Democrats make a very big deal about being the party of racial minorities, and women, and this and that. In reality, they’re just the opposite."

"Don’t just take this one poll. This poll is not just an outlier," Knowles added. "Moveon.org, that odious left-wing group, did another straw poll. This one did not put Bernie on top. It put Beto on top. So Beto was on top, then Joe Biden, and then Bernie Sanders was number three. So, again, the exact same top three people born out again from that progressive poll. Same three guys, different order."

Democrats have looked ahead to 2020, and they only want white guys. They don’t want women, not black guys, not Hispanic people, nope! Only white guys. There was a poll put out by a group called Democracy for America. This was a major poll, this a poll of 94,000 progressives, self-identified progressives. Who is the number one choice for 2020? Oh it’s not Kamala, oh no no. It’s not Cory “Spartacus” Booker, no no no no. It is Bernie Sanders. Who, in 2020, I think he’ll be a hundred seventy-nine years old. So, he will be well past the constitutional mandate of being thirty-five. He’ll be many multiples older than that, so he certainly can run. He might be a little old, but it wasn’t even close by the way. Bernie Sanders blew his competition out of the water. The next closest competitor was Joe Biden, also a white guy.

But Bernie got three times as many votes as Joe Biden. Blew it out of the water. So number two was Biden, and number three: Beto O’Rourke. Now, you might be confused. You’d say, with a name like Beto, that’s not a white guy. Actually, it is a white guy. His name is Robert Francis O'Rourke. He is entirely Irish. He is not at all Mexican. So the first three guys, white guys. The first two guys: old white guys.

Only when you get to number four do you get Liz Warren. She’s only 1,023/1,024ths white. She’s obviously 1/1,1024th Native American Indian. And then number five you get Kamala Harris. So, you actually can trace gradations of white all the way down to Kamala Harris. You start with Bernie Sanders. He lives in Vermont. He lives in basically the whitest state in America. Then you get to Joe Biden. Still pretty white. But you know, he’s got a little more rust belt vibe.

Then you get to Beto O'Rourke. He’s completely white, but he’s a fake Mexican. Then you get to Elizabeth Warren. She’s also white but she’s got a little drop of Native American. Only when you get to Kamala Harris do you get anything even resembling a racial minority. Which again, I wouldn't even care about, but Democrats make a very big deal about being the party of racial minorities, and women, and this and that. In reality, they’re just the opposite.

Don’t just take this one poll. This poll is not just an outlier. Moveon.org, that odious left-wing group, did another straw poll. This one did not put Bernie on top. It put Beto on top. So Beto was on top, then Joe Biden, and then Bernie Sanders was number three. So, again, the exact same top three people born out again from that progressive poll. Same three guys, different order.
