Trump is so egregious that if he hadn't actually been elected, I would not have believed he could be. I would like to believe that with an impeachment pinned to his tail he could not be re-elected, but the weak slate of Democratic front-runners is the least of the party's problems. If the DNC and some media agencies (eg. CNN) are thought to be tilting the table for one of the progressives (Sanders, Warren) and then later on against the progressive in favour of the centrist (Biden), pissed-off voter defections to a third party candidate (eg. Green) can be the difference in key states just as in 2016.
I'm not sure that CNN and that ilk are tilting the table for progressives. Unfortunately, with all his manic and frantic activity, Trump continues to suck all the oxygen from the media's room. They are paying so much attention to his ramblings that whatever message the Democratic candidates are transmitting, is not being received by the public due to the random white noise out there. I may dislike Trump --in fact a lot--but I have to admit, he knows how to make everything be all about himself. (Just take a look at the administration's recent incentive to role back Michelle Obama's healthy school lunch programs in favour of the type of foods Trump prefers. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-administration-announces-proposals-loosen-guidelines-school-meals/story?id=68361208&cid=clicksource_4380645_5_film_strip_icymi_hed) That's not going to stop anytime soon.
