    Mark Sanford has withdrawn from the race 68 days after declaring his candidacy.

    Hillary Clinton is very unlikely to run, while Michael Bloomberg is very likely to run.

      "I’m running for president to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America."

        Honestly, most of the democrat field is full of insincere billionaires that are trying to cover for their own business interests.

        A lot of their foreign policy seems to be a repeat of the Obama era which isn't exactly appealing.

        Some of the candidates aren't really backing any sort of change to the healthcare system.

        For that reason the only two candidates I'm really even considering are Bernie and Gabbard. The rest come off like robots that don't hold up to scrutiny.

          I agree with that, but I would support any of them over Trump.
