  1. So what I’m hearing is that we have to get women, African Americans and younger generations to band together and vote then we will win. It sounds so easy when you say it, maybe that’s what makes so difficult to achieve.

  2. Those same numbers had Clinton winning the election. The democrats are losing voters. Hillary will not win this election either. The fact is Trump is doing well despite the left looney media and their fake polls.

  3. Sit back, relax, you don't have to move nor vote, the republicans with Russia's help have relieved you of that burden.

  4. Being female never stopped Maggie Thatcher, Angela Merkel or Theresa May. They just got over themselves and ran.

  5. He's only lost voters not gained any. He'll be gone by January 2021 it's what he leaves behind you should be worried about.

  6. Woman or man just let’s get trump and get the senate to reflect people of the nation. Register mobilize Vote 🗳

  7. COME ON LADIES, WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO BAN TOGETHER AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR EACH OF US AND THE WHOLE COUNTRY. I APPLAUDE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. WE GOT THIS !

  8. Corporate bias.. you guys have no backbone. Report the truth. Stop focusing on the division of voters. Talk about issues the we actually care about. Nobody cares about electability!!!

  9. But but b… Individual 1 is not a man. He is a wimp, a coward and nothing like a real man. So what about that elect ability.

  10. If Trump had a plus and not minus with voters CNN would never admit it so waste of time believing anything on CNN and MSNBC is so biased against the president that they can,t even admit they are lol

  11. Ohhhh Joe Biden!!! You mean the guy who's lost 2 Presidential Bids already? It's sooo disgusting when MSNBC starts picking winners! How did that work last election….and the first Obama election! MSNBC was always there to give us their Corporatist Punk and cast shadows at the better candidates!

  12. Hilary Clinton was unelectable just as much as trump. The media continue to push the narrative that it was her turn and fell on their face. I’d advise anyone watching this video to do their own research and not worry about anyone else’s vote. Above all DONT listen to MSNBC talk about fluffed polls.

  13. These pundits should stop talking about "elect-ability", voters don't want to be told who to vote for but what their policies are. People should vote for who they like, not who some pundit thinks is good enough for them.

  14. but you will not admit that Bernie is way ahead. if you like the way things are vote biden, if you want change For The People, Bernie is the only one that will do it. omg . Look at msnbc not even mentioning Bernie, they want to protect that gravy train.

  15. One issue the candidates could use to get my attention is telling me to what degree they intend prosecute the current Occupant's obstructions of justice, emoluments violations and anything else. He's done real damage, and I want him to regret it. Bigly.

  16. mainstream media bobbleheads in their little bubble. vote for elect-ability, wink, wink… biden.
    pound sand corporate $hills. bernie 2020.

  17. I hope US votes for Elizabeth warren. Smart, knows economy and is humane. Any democrat and almost any republican is better than the lunatic in WH. I fear that with these demagogs in the world we are going to end up in WW3.

  18. If the DNC would not have been so stupid to put the most hated woman ever in American politics on the ballot, then we would have had a Democratic president or even a female president. Hillary was a big nono for many people so they stayed home or give it a try with Trump. Both political parties are in and in corrupt.

  19. I’m not talking to ANY maga here so don’t reply (you guys just talk stupidities).

    Rest of the ppl, I’d be pleased to read your knowledge or thoughts about it:
    Isn’t there a way-anything that can Trump from getting a library named after him when he leaves office?
    Because sometimes I think it’s better to have one more library “not matter” what name it is called than not having it.
    But then I also realize that after seing how violent, racist and problematic these maga people are, that library will just become a just for whites and/or magas place.

  20. It is prime time for democrat candidates especially females, president or vice president. Just be universal not feministic and also be the complete opposite of Trump and heshe will be fine.

  21. Trump is a plague on this land. America eradicates plague or gets destroyed by it. No worries 40% of our nation chose Plague! Imagin 40% of your brain to be paralyzed, FOXidized or diseased. We're F***d

  22. I have no problem with a female or man. My preferences are Warren/Berny or viceversa. But if there won’t be any of them I can be ok w Biden or I should say, Anything but trump nor respublican.

  23. Working SO hard to ignore Bernie Sanders is on the rise and polls better than Biden. CNN and MSNBC are just FOX lite when it comes to being honest about Bernie Sanders and his "elect-ability". The Democratic Party of Wall Street has chosen Biden and will cheat for him just as they got caught cheating for Hillary in 2016. Anyone else notice we don't hear ONE WORD about the "Superdelegates"? They are still out there, just holding their tongues this time. Don't want to let everyone know the DNC has already anointed Hillary 2.0, Joe Biden.

  24. It's divided because propaganda networks like MS-NPC spew racist nonsense that divide people…. get it right, you puppets!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. The Begining of the Trump Recession, US leadership gone, Disrespected around the World, Deficit is 1 Trillion dollars, More than 50% of Americans have zero respect for the President, Most Americans view him as immoral, ignorant, stupid, insecure and racist, the Trump Tax is hurting the Middle Class, a Socialist Bailout for the Farmers in progress because Trump has turned them into welfare Queens, but don't worry Donnie, another Red Wave coming!!! just like 2018. Like the one that put Pelosi in charge of the House#MAGA #EvangelicalsForTrump #KKKLovesTrump #GOPInDownwardSpiral

  26. Yang no mention again. Biden already senile and belongs in the nursing home horrible what kind of news MSNBC horrible

  27. Trump gives derranged dems a reason to live…after his second term is up, they'll go back to euthanizing themselves. move along kids.

  28. once again, all bun no beef and why should we vote for any of these dem candiates, this is not all about beating trump it's all about electing the next president of the united states. if the dem's bring this weak stuff to the 2020 showdown, get out your crying towels and remember, don't operate, heavy machinery for the next 6 years, after being exposed to a sever personal loss. you might find yourself slipping into a deep depression, don't worry, it's just the beginning of your very own "new world order."

  29. Those 5% should just leave the country and go somewhere like say Russia since they're too lazy and stupid to vote. Let them live under someone who rigs votes and ignores the country. That's what those lazy jerks deserve.

  30. You Americans are going to decide whether Russians get a real election or hong Kong's people end up in reeducation camps if you reelect trump nato is done we go back to ww2 Europe it will be a disaster but you have no way around it and if you do the right thing not one European will say thanks because we are very aware that without you we disintegrate and we resent that so good luck

  31. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸Trump wins in 2020. Liberals, your anger, and misery will spike. You will ruin your lives, and careers. I will bask in your sorrow, and laugh for years. MAGA.

  32. H. Clinton won popular vote in a two person election in 2016. Literal rounding error elevated to constitutional control the orange stain from Queens. Jesus wept.

  33. Kamala Harris is not Presidentiable. She may be a good litigator but that's it. she should go back to being a judge or a lawyer. but not as President. Elizabeth Warren is a potential good Presdent. she's wise and smart and looks mature enough to lead however, at the rate donald trump is going … for every single thing he has done to destroy everything good the past president had done.. it will need a calmer and a kinder-gentler heart to turn things around. america needs a father to rebuid the broken house donald trump destroyed.Joe Biden can do that. He would know what to do. not just in words. but in deeds.

  34. Nothing swells the Democratic Party's rolls like the reaction to Trump's ineptness and extremism. The reaction was pretty strong in the 2018 midterms but it will be even stronger by the time the 2020 elections get here and Trump stays way off the deep end.

  35. What if you turned on your television and found hair dye has been banned from news programing, then the A-block of this Morning Joe’s cablecast, would not have looked like this; one black shoe polish dye head, three blond dye heads, and two sets of greasy lips, and just maybe, more time would have been spent on journalism that some could hear, instead of these television ‘show business’ like appearances that everyone can see…

  36. People used to tell me Obama could never win. Then he won and the Tea Party turned crazy and people feared he wouldnt get reelected. He did. The people who would tell me that we always white males. What they really meant is they werw too ignorant to vote for a black male. America was ready.
    Also Hillary did not lose bc she was a woman. She lost because she is a robot and a liar.

  37. This is how the media rigs the elections for their corporate friendly candidates. Instead of the candidates that line Bernie Sanders that are friendly to the working class And why you keep getting terrible candidates winning the nomination. https://youtu.be/T7wE2vQIaDE

  38. Talking head BS! Hillary, as bad a campaigner as she was, still won the popular vote. And if she had actually campaigned in the rust belt …? A good woman candidate can easily defeat Trump!

  39. Just curious about this "Black women are the backbone of the Democratic party". What percentage of total voters do they represent? I am guessing 6 to 7%

  40. DEAR MSNBC PLEASE STOP PUSHING BIDEN DOWN OUR THROATS! You are digging your own graves! The public is wizing up. We don't want a. Zionist shill president! ( Its on video) shaking Netanyahu's hand saying " You don't have to be a Jew to be a Zioniist"

  41. Remember the polls had Clinton as a sure winner. Not only is the Country divided as it always has been but the World population is divided. The United Nations failed experiment to unite people is now defunct. As a family unite we can no longer tolerate our children being taught Gender equality. Lesbianism and Homosexuality is out of the school curriculum. The teachings of Islam and Sharia Law is also out. Drugs and violent games and Hollywood Movies are out. We want some decent VALUES back in.

  42. Tulsi is a patriot and veteran.  Self-annointed "top tier candidate" Harris is someone who kept back evidence that kept an innocent man on Death Row.  Imploding Comcast-TPP-NAFTA-war lover Joe is someone who openly LIED many times about marching with the civil Rights movement.  Bernie Sanders is the candidate Comcast-owned MSNBC and its overpaid, over-rated onscreen pundits hate.  For me as a progressive it can only be Bernie-Tulsi 2020.

  43. Years back I saw an article that said it was women that didn't vote for women. Biden is hopeless. All these corporate clowns want to keep bernie out but they don't have a decent argument. So they say warren is progressive, which she is not.

  44. So many great candidates.
    Elizabeth Warren, Michael Bennett, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Julian Castro
    These candidates will restore intelligence, integrity, stability, and checks and balances to the office of the presidency.
    Hopefully, they will finally rid us of lobbyists and special interest groups.

  45. Give me a woman candidate that has Bernie Sanders policies and history and I will be very happy to vote for her, you idiots still do not get this has nothing to do with gender or race for millions of people. Millions didn't vote for Obama because he was African-American we voted for him because he offered policies that would bring positive change, he gave us hope. We are still fighting for that change.

  46. Of course Americans must stop voting for old white men with wobbly chins and grey hair.
    Wisdom and leadership is not necessarily carried in wobbly chins or grey hair.

  47. Voting for President Trump, not the pro slavery, pro segregation, Jim Crowe law, KKK founding, white nationalist, racist Democrats.

  48. I see a repeat of 2018 with millions coming out to vote out Trump. And I can see those numbers increasing as he just can’t help offending more via his twitter account.
