The blow-back from the four-month-long impeachment saga has already begun, but will it mean anything for the 2020 elections, which are still eight months away?

Robertson is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown. 


“This party is trying to figure out what they want exactly. Do they want the energy and progressiveness and the younger voters on the left, the movement that Bernie Sanders has created? Or do they want a little bit more of a pragmatic approach to everything and someone that can beat Trump and also propose legislation that will be incrementally inching things down the field which is what Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar represent,” said chief political analyst David Brody on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.

Brody says the key time-frame will be between the South Carolina primary and Super Tuesday, when the pragmatic-left candidates may need to bind together behind whoever seems to be the front-runner in an effort to stop Bernie.
