On Tuesday, while speaking to FNC program America’s Newsroom, Lindsey Graham pegged the New Hampshire primaries.

In the senator’s view, the whole thing signals “the demise of the Democratic Party.”

Lindsey explained that Trump is in a can’t-lose situation:

“The President’s in a spot where he really can’t lose as this plays out. Biden’s going to win South Carolina. You’re going to have three different winners in the first three states.”

Graham believes former NYC mayor, billionaire Mike Bloomberg, will see some action, too:

“On Super Tuesday, I think Bloomberg is going to make a real dent. He’s going to make a real presence. You’re going to go to this convention with Biden basically collapsed. Somebody’s going to fill that lane, it’s not going to be (Democratic Sen.) Amy Klobuchar. It’s going to be Bloomberg.”

In the congressman’s view, Amy “doesn’t have the juice.”

“Amy is a nice person, but at the end of the day she’s not going to be able to compete with Bloomberg. He’s got just too much money.”

As for Joe’s “collapse,” he hasn’t exactly nailed it in front of the camera, offering instead a long line of flubs and gaffes.

But the deathblow has surely been Ukrainian mud through which his own party has mercilessly dragged him. For some reason, they decided it was worth throwing his candidacy in the trash for the opportunity to shoot spitballs at Trump via a doomed-from-the-start impeachment strike.

And now here we are, with Bernie and Pete in the lead (here and here).

In Lindsey’s view, if a nomination isn’t determined during the first round of voting, it’s sizably “going to help President Trump get reelected.”

And:

“[I]f you can’t find a nomination on the first round of voting, the Democratic Party as we know it is going to completely implode.”

It’s the total obliteration of a national institution:

“You’re seeing the demise of the Democratic Party that your grandfather and grandmother knew, and we’ll see how that affects America.”

Well, ideologically, he certainly seems to be right. When socialism can get such a high-five, we’re no longer talking about a party of moderate liberals.

But who’s the most potent challenger to the President? Lindsey’s betting on Bloomberg, albeit to the pulverizing disappointment of those who are psyched to see socialism finally fix everything.

Host: In a general election matchup, who do you see putting up the biggest fight for the President? Is it going to be a Mike Bloomberg?

Graham:  Yeah. But if Bloomberg’s the nominee, you lose the Bernie people.

You sure do.

I have to say — it’s shaping up to be an interest race. At least it will be, up through the primaries.
