CNN’s King: It’s Not ‘Impossible’ for Far-Left Candidate to Win 2020

Not long after CNN wrapped night one of the Democratic Party presidential primary debates Tuesday night, the post-debate analysis boiled down to how the so-called “moderate” candidates on the stage did against the extremely far-left ones.

In that vein, CNN’s chief national correspondent, John King argued that just because a far-left radical had never won a national election (that’s not true) doesn’t mean it can’t be done in 2020.

Setting himself up to make the case, King pointed out how “we're in a primary where you want to love a candidate, you want passion, you want someone to represent you. There is a hunger in the Democratic Party for ideas.”

From there, he seemed to suggest that simply pointing out how Democrats might lose the battleground states due to a candidate’s radical proposals wasn’t good enough argument against a far-left candidate.
