Will the 2020 Democratic Nominee be either Kamala Harris or Bernie Sanders?


Although we're still several months away from official candidate announcements, let's put our politics brains in and think about who might be yelling at Donald Trump on a stage in 2019.

So far, the only major candidate to have declared candidacy for the Democratic party nomination is John Delaney, a Congressman from Maryland. That's no surprise, since in the run-up to the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy on April 12, 2015. Donald Trump formally began his campaign two months later, on June 16. Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy on the 29th of April.

Still, it's a fair bet that many of the big names will be in the running early on, including Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and perhaps even wild cards such as Oprah Winfrey, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Joe Biden. But few potential nominees are generating as many headlines right now as Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, who for the purposes of this question, are the frontrunners for the nomination.

Will one of Kamala Harris or Bernie Sanders win the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election?
