    Yes, at the Democrat convention . . . it won't be "announced". . . . it will be a televised open vote by state delegates. . . . a lot of back-room deals ahead of time and sometimes it's a foregone conclusion, sometimes repeated ballots when no person has received a majority.

    The nominee isn't "announced' per se, because the selection process isn't conducted in secret. Instead, the Democrats are going to go through a series of primary elections which will determine who becomes the nominee. These race begin in late January 2020 with the Iowa Caucuses, and run into the late spring early summer. The Democrats will hold a nominating convention in late Summer 2020 to formally nominate their candidate (the Republicans will do the same). But the identity of the nominee will be known long before that. The way it works is that each state holds an election to determine how many delegates to the convention each candidate will get. A candidate needs to get a majority of the delegates to win the nomination. We're going to get a good idea of the frontrunner after the first few primaries and a prohibitive favorite is probably going to emerge by mid spring. Sometime in the spring one of the candidates will probably have such a lead that it would be all but impossible for anyone else to win.

    No Matter who they decide on they will lose against Trump as they are to bust cutting each other and making up fake news stories to try to get votes.. NOT ONE DEMOCRIT has a chance of beating Trump from the ones who are running.. THEY ARE ALL CLOWNS who cannot remember what they were saying even as late as 6 years ago.

    After the primaries when one has won more in the primaries than the others. Warren has the best chance, but she will be under attack by fake Democrats and Clinton type Democrats who will try to say she is a danger for offering such radical ideas as medicare for all.....

    Officially announced at the Democratic Convention when the delegates vote on whom they want to be the nominee. In the past, the vote has tended to take place on the third night of the convention (July 15, 2020 this time).

    As far as unofficially anounced, the rules of the Democratic Party's delegate selection process (both at the national level and in the individual states and territories) allocates the vast majority of the delegates to the candidates based on the results of the initial vote in each of the states and territories (and in the congressional districts within the states) with each candidate who gets more than 15% of the vote receiving a proportionate share of the delegates. (While there are some automatic delegates representing around 10% of the total delegates, under the new rules for this cycle, those delegates only get to vote if there is a second ballot.) That means that anybody who follows the results can track how many delegates each candidate has. Usually, while delegates could defect if something happened between the primaries and the conventions, there is a point in the primary process when it becomes clear who will be the nominee. After that point, most of the other candidates concede and endorse the person who is the presumptive nominee. There is no official announcement, but everyone starts treating that person as the nominee.

    As to who has the best chance, a lot of the process depends on who drops out when (or starts to lose support when). Because each state holds its contest on different days, voters in the later states have the opportunity of seeing whom is still viable. If you live in say Pennsylvania which votes in April and your first choice was candidate D who drops out after the New Hampshire Primary in February, you get to opt to vote for candidate C instead. Since different candidates appeal to different factions of the party, there is a significant advantage to being the first candidate to unify a faction behind you do to other candidates that might appeal to those voters withdrawing. (For example, President Obama and Secretary Clinton had a close race in 2008. When the third placed candidate -- Senator Edwards -- dropped out, President Obama did the best job of getting the supporters of Senator Edwards. If Senator Edwards had been a little more competitive and had kept in the race for another several weeks, Secretary Clinton might have won the nomination.) With that cautionary note, however, my read of the race is that Senator Warren currently appears to be best positioned to get the nomination.

    weeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllll ,-----let's hold our horses there for a moment, pilgrim.

    The Primaries start in Feb and will run thru June........ starting with Iowa, then NH, and so on. and by Super Tuesday........most of the pack should be dropping out.......leaving only 2 or 3 frontrunners.......who will no doubt battle it down to the wire........and then the convention in July will make the final selection.......assuming there's any competetion left by then.

    I think ANY of them could win against Trump..........but I still believe BIDEN has the best chance .

    I see the media seems to be pushing Warren, and downplaying Biden for some reason.-....but we'll see if Warren can go the distance.

    Very often early front runners, are often the first to crash and burn.

    McCain was in LAST place, and a hair away from dropping out.....when all the "frontrunners" starting blowing their feet off, one by one, and by process of ELIMINATION.....McCain found himself the last man standing.

    So ya never know..............right now....it seems to be Biden and Warren........6 months from now.......

    it could be Bernie and Buttigieg...............who knows?

    The Democratic convention won't take place until next summer, in July. The nomination will become official then.

    But we'll know before then who it's going to be, on the basis of primaries and caucuses that will take place earlier.

    I believe it's going to be Elizabeth Warren. She has surged ahead of Biden in the polls, and I think she has an excellent chance of knocking off Trump. (Actually, the way things are going for him, a chimpanzee might be able to knock off Trump.) Even Wall Street is starting to believe that she's going to be the nominee and that she can beat Trump.

      Tell it to a shrink, dear. You need one. Oh, and might I remind you that little Donnie and the North Koreans are supposedly on fabulous terms? He loves those authoritarian leaders. By the way, I doubt you've ever met a Jewish person. You don't know anything about them.
