Biden or any establishment Dem on most of these. Anyone who unabashedly supports free trade for the trade issue, (so I guess only Tom Carper?), and anyone who supports open borders and amnesty for immigration, so no-one. The closest compromise on immigration would just be anyone who isnít Bernie Sanders.

How is free trade and open borders a good policy for Democrats (unless the intent is to be the complete opposite of Trump on every issue)?

I'm only including candidates who *I* think are actually going to run.

1. Brown

2. I'm not really sure. I feel like foreign policy won't be much of a focus in 2020 but Merkley, Booker, and Murphy are on the Senate Foreign Affairs committee so that might be something. Are there any veteran candidates I'm forgetting about? (Not Gabbard..)

3. Harris, closely followed by Gillibrand and Booker

4. Merkley

5. Brown

6. No idea.

7. Merkley

8. Harris

9. Brown

10. Not really sure, first one that comes to mind is Brown but that's probably just because I'm in Ohio.

11. No idea, Castro was at HUD, which is *kinda* infrastructure.

12. Don't know, but Klobuchar is on the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.

13. No idea.

14. Brown

15. McAullife seems like the most Centrist candidate so maybe him?

16. Brown or Merkley

17. No idea.

18. No idea

19. No idea.

20. Gillibrand.

21. Harris

22. Castro

23. No idea.

24. Brown.

25. Hickenlooper.

26. Brown.

27. Gillibrand.

28. Booker.

29. Brown.

30. Murphy.

31. Castro

32-40. See #2.

Final choice? See my username.
