A U.S. Congressman from California who is known best for promulgating the leftist conspiracy theory that President Donald J. Trump “colluded” with the Russians to win the presidency has announced his own candidacy for the 2020 race.
“U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell said on Monday he would seek the Democratic nomination for president, joining a crowded field seeking to take on Republican Donald Trump in the 2020 election,” said a Reuters report.
The Democrat’s announcement will be made public on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which will air late Monday night. Colbert is a known leftist political operative who masquerades as a comedian.
Swalwell is best known for his voluminous cable news appearances during which he conspiracy theorized about Trump being an asset of a hostile foreign power. Even after Attorney General William Barr released the findings of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s lengthy investigation, which cleared Trump of collusion and obstruction of justice, Swalwell still called Trump a “traitor.”
He also had an internet dust up with Second Amendment supporters who claimed that they would never turn their guns over to the federal government, saying that such a demand would cause a civil war. In response, Swalwell suggested using nuclear weapons on American citizens.
“And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities,” Swalwell said on Twitter.
He enters an already-crowded Democratic primary field, which includes Democratic Party Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Failed U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has entered the race, as have former Obama administration official Julian Castro of Texas, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), Mayors Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
Two heavy hitters, former Vice President Joe Biden and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams are both considering entering the race.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November
They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.
New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.
Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.
While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.
Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.
With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.
The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
