Amy Klobuchar?

George Will averred in a column today that Amy Klobuchar would have the best chance of making Trump a one-term President. As a rule, taking political advice from George Will merits extreme caution for those of us on the left side of the fence. He may not have our best interests in mind.
Still, could he possibly be right? Check out the chart below from an article from David Byler in the Post. The chart compares the margins attained by possible Democratic candidates to Clinton's margins in the same state in 2016. And, by George, the candidate who stands out the most--who outperformed Clinton the most--is Amy Klobuchar!
Now this isn't exactly "proof" that Klobuchar's the most electable candidate. But it is a point in her favor. Read the Byler article for an appropriately nuanced discussion of what these and other data may mean to the electability question.
