Bernie Sanders could defeat President Trump in the 2020 presidential election, GOP political consultant, according to former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove.

“When only 37% of Americans in the RealClearPolitics average think the country is going in the right direction while 56.4% think it’s on the wrong track, Mr. Sanders could be perceived as an agent of change,” Mr. Rove wrote about the socialist Vermont senator in his Wall Street Journal op-ed.

Karl Rove is never right. This is good news.

Karl Rove’s time has long gone. He just makes shocking statements to stay relevant.

one of these guys is a pundit who's almost always wrong; the other is a canned ham wearing glasses:

Stopped watch Karl. Irrelevant & irritating Karl tries to stay in the spotlight with his inside baseball insight.

A few weeks ago he had the white board out and Biden was beating Trump. Hater.

Here’s a guy that uses whatever answer comes up on his Magic 8 ball and writes in on the whiteboard before going on cable news shows.

How did Turd Blossom go from “magnificent b@st@rd” to just “b@st@rd,” and will he ever just go away?

Thanks, Karl hasn’t been correct since Candidate Trump started.

Good new for our side.

Sanders is an “agent of change.”

So were Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot.

Oh, brother. Been following this 'country going in the wrong direction' trend and guess what it's tied to, directly? The Democrats winning the House last November. Rasmussen has the stats. Why people keep giving Rove the time of day, let alone the mantra of 'political guru,' is beyond me. This guy got lucky with Bush, period. When he isn't sticking his finger up his ass, he's putting it in the air trying to guess which way the political winds are blowing. And he's never right.

Sure, Bernie has a chance.

It is not a 50/50 chance... but even 1/1024 is a chance.

I think the point is to not underestimate the possibility. Bernie has a following and could conceivably be a surprise.

Beta O’Rourke is toast, Kirsten JellyBrain is toast, The Injun is toast, The Concubine is toast.

Right now it looks like Bernie/ButtSlammer 2020 for the Dems unless Bernie gets hammered on a gaff.

this is Karl Rove we’re talking about. If Daffy Duck was the Dem nominee, he’ll say this being A Deep State GOPE Muppet..

That’s funny, I was just thinking about how people here called him “magnificent...” back in the Bush years.

I think the country is going the wrong way. Not Trump’s fault. That is why we say MAGA.

Great! All we need now is confirmation by Dick Morris and the election is ours.
