That being said, the extreme left wing radical racist nuttiness of the physcho Dems will probably get President Trump a second term, and rightfully so.

I don't know if I totally agree with that.  We ran a centrist last time.  She lost.  We'll end up running one this time, and if history repeats itself because the Dems would rather preserve what they have and not rock the boat, they'll lose again.
The "extreme" left is a populist movement, much the way Trump portrayed himself in 2016.  That message gets through to more people than "stay the course".

I think you are correct, but it still needs to be a more controlled Left populist candidate.  Right now, due to the GOP PR machine (not Trump’s machine), AOC would be a horrible mistake as a presidential candidate at this time.  The Dems/Left cannot put up a fringe liberal and populist at the same time.  Two different spectrums and platforms. Pushing both would be a disaster similar to 1984.
