Election analyst predicts 2020 Dem ticket will be split between a man and a woman

Elections analyst Henry Olsen said in an interview that aired Thursday on "What America's Thinking" that the Democratic ticket that challenges President TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate GOP budget ignores Trump, cuts defense Trump says he'll nominate Stephen Moore to Fed White House: ISIS territory in Syria has been 100 percent eliminated MORE in 2020 will include both a man and a woman. 

"They will balance the ticket," Olsen told Hill.TV's Joe Concha. "If the man is the choice, the woman will be the vice presidential choice, and vice versa."

Olsen's comments come as a number of Democratic women, including Sens.

Republican pollster Ashlee Rich Stephenson told Concha that it matters more if the 2020 Democratic nominee is a good candidate, rather than if they are a man or a woman. 

"I've worked with a lot of female candidates who have defeated a lot of Democratic women," said Stephenson, chief strategy officer at WPA Intelligence.
