I am super excited to announce the March Madness edition of the 2020 Democratic Candidates Power Rankings!
I’ve invested over 20 hours into my rating system since last month’s version ran. In February I ranked the chances of 2020 potus candidates regardless of party.
This month it is strictly Democrats. The new version of my system is much slicker and contains a couple of totally new metrics.

I have added social media mentions and a proprietary “news popularity” metric to the data I was collecting previously. My system now uses four criteria types, each containing multiple sources of information.
I am tracking 50 potential 2020 democratic candidates. These rankings represent the top 25 democratic candidates on a scale from 1 to 100 at this point in time.
I could tell you more about my system but I have to get permission from the lovely Teresa Gail before I release anything…
Marianne Williamson and Eric Garcetti could not even make it to 1, so my system still needs some small tweaks. I’ll fix that and add some additional sources before I trigger it next month.

Biden, Bernie, and Beto all improved from my last survey.
Mark my words: If O’Rourke can leverage social media to the extent Obama ( or even Trump ) did/does, he could be a force to be reckoned with.
Tulsi Gabbard had the biggest slide of any of the top half of the candidates from last month. Main stream news hit jobs are still effective evidently… John Hickenlooper made a nice move up from the bottom rungs to solidly in the middle.
Tune in next month to see how these ratings change. As always, feel free to tell me how I am wrong in the comments section.
If some proprietary data collection and analysis could benefit you, we should talk.
