THE ARGUMENT THAT KAMALA IS INSUFFICIENTLY lEFT...:

Dems Prefer Electability in 2020 (Monmouth University, February 04, 2019)

The poll also asked registered Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents about their party's nomination process.  In considering who should be their party's standard bearer, a majority of 56% prefer someone who would be a strong candidate against Trump even if they disagree with that candidate on most issues.  Just 33% say they would prefer a nominee who they are aligned with on the issues even if that person would have a hard time beating Trump.  Democratic women (61%) are more likely than men (45%) to say they would put their policy positions aside in order to get a nominee who could beat Trump.

"In prior elections, voters from both parties consistently prioritized shared values over electability when selecting a nominee. It looks like Democrats may be willing to flip that equation in 2020 because of their desire to defeat Trump. This is something to pay close attention to when primary voters really start tuning into the campaign," said Murray.
