Pete Buttigieg Now the Leading Long Shot Among Democratic Candidates

It's not a foregone conclusion, as we sit now just under a year from the 2020 Presidential election that we'll have Elizabeth Warren taking on Donald Trump in the general election. Sure, she's the Democratic party front-runner right now, but typically the candidate in the out of power party at this point in the cycle doesn't always get the nomination.

Eventual 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney trailed Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and even Herman Cain during the fall of 2011. Hillary Clinton led the way in November of 2007, not future two term President Barack Obama. And a year before the 2004 election, the talk wasn't about John Kerry at all. Front-runners among the Dems back then included Howard Dean, Joe Lieberman and Wesley Clark.
