Dick Morris on the Alzheimer’s Man vs. Orange Man matchup. Ironically, the only thing the Republicans have going for them is the Democrats. Trumpism more or less pushed the old guard Republicans aside, and they now have to go along to get along, and the only reliable Republican constituency (middle-aged and elderly whites in the South and Midwest) is shrinking. Trump won in 2016 with 26% of eligible voters and 19% of US residents. Even with these advantages, the Democrats still can’t get it together, with its moderate wing moving right and its liberal wing moving left.

A former adviser to President Bill Clinton has doubts that the Democratic Party will officially nominate Joe Biden to run against President Trump.
“It’s hard to see. It’s like a suicide march with them. But, you know, they’re pretty — pretty stubborn people,” Dick Morris told radio show host John Catsimatidis on Sunday.
Biden has not yet secured the 1,991 delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination on the first ballot but is the only candidate left in the race after Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ended his campaign earlier this month.
Morris pitched New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo as a possible replacement. Cuomo’s national profile has been elevated for his handling of the coronavirus crisis, leading some to speculate that he could launch a last-minute bid for the White House. The governor has shot down any talk that he may run.
