Speculation is continuing to mount that Hillary Clinton is planning to join the 2020 race

Democrats are preparing to drop support for the current Democratic presidential nomination frontrunners, and back Hillary Clinton in the 2020 race for the White House, according to reports.

Speculation has been mounting for months now that Hillary is preparing to make a last-minute entry into the 2020 presidential race.

According to reports published Tuesday, members of the Democratic establishment now doubt any of the party’s current top candidates can beat President Donald Trump next year.

While former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) battle it our for frontrunner status, with socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) trailing in third place, it's beginning to dawn on the Democrats that none of them have it in them to take on the powerhouse that President Trump.

Recent reports have stated that Clinton has said privately that she would only enter the race if she was certain she could win the nomination.

Democrats already running, however, claim that Hillary is doing more harm than good for the party by attacking Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) in recent remarks.

The New York Times reported Tuesday, in the story, titled “Anxious Democratic Establishment Asks, ‘Is There Anybody Else?’,” that about a half-dozen Democratic donors gathered in New York City questioned whether former front-runner Joe Biden could stand strong against Trump, citing Biden’s lackluster debate performance in Ohio last week.

They also raised concerns about Biden's fundraising struggles and his need to defend his family’s business dealings in Ukraine amid the ongoing Trump impeachment inquiry.

They also said Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders were likely too liberal to win the general election.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, reported that Clinton was considering a 2020 rematch against Trump after the State Department concluded this week there was "no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information" regarding Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.

The same State Department report, however, found dozens of individuals were at fault for mishandling classified information and found hundreds of security violations during her 2009-2013 tenure, according to Fox News.

Clinton, the first woman to win a major party presidential nomination – and the national popular vote leader with almost 3 million more votes than Trump – remains a popular figure in her party, even after enduring criticism for losing key Midwestern states in 2016. 

For Republicans, she's a perennial target — currently in the Mississippi governor's race, where Democratic nominee Jim Hood, a longtime attorney general, is being attacked for acknowledging he voted for her over Trump.

Clinton’s supporters within the Democratic establishment have also passed around an op-ed published earlier this month in the San Francisco Chronicle by former Mayor Willie Brown titled: “Who should run against Trump? How about Hillary Clinton?” The Washington Post reported.

Both the Post and the Times reported that Clinton was not the only possible last-minute candidate on Democrats’ minds.

Also being considered were: former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Disney chief executive Bob Iger, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and former first lady Michelle Obama.

Earlier this month, Hillary also suggested a presidential election "rematch" between herself and Trump, with the twice-failed Democrat candidate declaring “obviously, I can beat him again.”

Maybe it's time for Hillary to step up and put her money where her mouth is...
