40. I would prefer for Biden to choose a black or Latinx man.

Given that he is determined to choose a woman, I think that costs us 2-3% points in the general election, right off the bat. In my opinion, Americans are more sexist than they are racist, for better or for worse. If Biden chooses a white woman, I think that will cost us another 1-2% of the national vote, for a total of -3 to -5% of the vote. If Biden chooses a black woman, I think that gains us about 2-3% in the national vote (due to a massive increase in voter enthusiasm), for a total of +/-0%.

Personally, I hope he chooses a black woman, and I hope he chooses Karen Bass.

That said, I think he could choose Betty Boop and still win in November 2020.
