I think that D's have good chance to win back the top five on the list, and hold on to the states that Clinton won. "Good candidate" seems to be the operative term. D's need a candidate that will inspire and motivate people, especially mellennials and younger, to come out and vote "for" them. Presently, I don't know who that might be.

If I remember correctly, that is what the left and Hillary said when counting the last presidential votes. We will see what we will see! I wouldn't buy too much champagne yet.

 

You may be on to something if the Dems run Maxine Waters/Joe Biden ticket!
