Well the virus has done all it can to help Biden weather any challenge to his likely nomination….but let us look at him and his campaign…..
Before we go any further…NO I will not vote for Biden…..
First Biden has been an opponent of Medicare For All….but is that the best place to be especially n ow with Covid-19 pulling all the strings?
A new poll showing nearly 90 percent approval among Democratic voters for Medicare for All has stirred fresh calls for Joe Biden, the party’s presumptive nominee, to end his outdated opposition to the healthcare solution that would cover all Americans at less overall cost than the current, more wasteful for-profit system.
Arriving amid the coronavirus pandemic that has thrust the nation into a public health emergency and triggered a nearly unprecedented economic calamity in the U.S., the Hill-HarrisX survey released Friday showed overall voter support for Medicare for All 69 percent but that number soared to 88 percent for registered Democrats. Among independents, voters likely to be crucial in the 2020 general election, support now sits at 68 percent while even among Republicans sits at 46 percent.
Time for Biden to do what he always does…make is position fit the facts. (Very Trumpian of him)
I have heard many ask just how does Biden shape up against other Dem candidates?
Depending on who you listen to, you might hear one of two very different narratives about former Vice President Joe Biden. One says he’s a strong candidate: He leads President Trump in most early polls, his folksy demeanor will win back working-class white voters, and he’s moderate enough to attract ex-Republicans in the suburbs. The other says he’s a weak one: He’s gaffe-prone, his fundraising has been anemic and he’s been absent from the public eye during the coronavirus pandemic.
In reality, it’s hard to tell whether a candidate is strong or weak without knowing how he actually performs in the election. But one thing we can do is place Biden in the context of Democrats’ previous presidential nominees. So we picked four easily quantifiable, objective barometers of electoral prowess — primary performance, favorability, endorsements and fundraising — and calculated them for the past seven nonincumbent Democratic presidential nominees: Walter Mondale in 1984, Michael Dukakis in 1988, Bill Clinton in 1992, Al Gore in 2000, John Kerry in 2004, Barack Obama in 2008 and Hillary Clinton in 2016. Then we checked how Biden measures up.
One more thing…..have you heard of the woman accusing Joe of wrong doings?
Lucky for you I have written about it…..https://lobotero.com/2020/04/29/good-enough-for-donald-then-why-not-joe/
I bring this up to illustrate the hypocrisy in the DNC…..something I accuse the GOP of doing……
That coward that the DNC chose to lead it into 2020 has been very vocal on sexual abuse….but funny thing he has not been so willing to step up with the Biden thingy….
Comments made by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez three years ago about women who are victims of sexual abuse are coming back to bite Democrats as former Vice President Joe Biden faces a sexual assault allegation.
After then-Minnesota Sen. Al Franken was embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal in 2017, Perez called for the Democrat to resign in a statement that excoriated elected officials accused of sexual improprieties or crimes.
My question is was he truthful 3 years ago? Or was his support for women just a political prop?
Since Joe has promised to pick a woman as a running mate….how will that play?
Now for the bad news for you Biden supporters.
Looks like Joe is losing his edge against Trump……
The opinion poll conducted on Monday and Tuesday found that 43% of registered voters said they would support Biden in the Nov. 3 presidential election, while 41% said they would back Trump. That makes the contest essentially a toss-up, as the results are within the poll’s credibility interval.
Biden led by 6 percentage points in a similar poll last week and by 8 points in a poll that ran April 15 to 21.
