Trump vs Biden may not be the match Democrats are hoping for

President Trump is ready to rumble. At a recent rally, he mocked the large field running against him and implored Democrats to “Just pick somebody; let’s start this thing.” Nobody since Bill Clinton has showed such enthusiasm for the fight, or is so good at it.

At the same event, Trump completely obliterated Democrat wunderkind Pete Buttigieg, saying: "He’ll be great representing us against President Xi of China…I want to be in that room. I want to watch that one."

Who didn’t automatically picture the fresh-faced young mayor from South Bend facing off against the battle-tested, remorseless Xi? It is a devastating, and lasting, vision. 

Trump has recently declared “Sleepy Creepy” Joe Biden his likely opponent in 2020, saying the former vice president could keep the pole position throughout the campaign. Everyone else, he says, is “fading fast.” He may be right.

Even as nearly every political soothsayer suggested that his first day as a candidate was likely to be his best, Biden has proven doubters wrong by pulling dramatically ahead. According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, he now leads next-closest rival Bernie Sanders by an average of 27 points, up from 6 points the day he entered the race.
