The short answer to that question is “NO!”
The longer is answer is the explanation. Actually, at this point, I seriously doubt there IS a candidate on the left that can win. First of all, Trump’s popularity is on the rise in just about every poll out there. Second, more and more people are starting to laugh at the socialist snowflakes and their whacked out ideas. And finally, that means you’ve got Joe Biden versus Donald Trump in 2020. Could it get any better for the Republicans?
Frankly, I can’t see Biden winning on several fronts. He’s a politician of the 80’s and 90’s in an era that is begging for a new breed of politician. Frankly the Cory Booker’s and Kamala Harris’ of the world just don’t have enough gravitas to carry the day. AOC sounds way too much like she was just handed her college diploma without actually attending any classes and learning anything. And the rest of the field is just like the stuff you throw into a meatloaf…they’re filler. Yes, even Elizabeth Warren.
So, it most likely will be Biden v. Trump. The big thing is that Biden has almost as much baggage as Hillary had in 2016. Oh, he doesn’t have all of the scandals hanging over his head that she did, but there are a lot of comparisons. Both are old. Both are white. Both represent their party’s past. And both make terrible campaigning mistakes. Take Biden’s latest gaffe, saying he can work across the aisle, working with two Democrats who where segregationists. First of all, it wasn’t across the aisle, the two people he mentioned were also Democrats (yes, Virginia…in the South in the 1960’s it was Democrats that tried to stop the blacks from attending school, NOT the Republicans!) Biden’s faux pas has helped soften his position as the party’s leading candidate quite a bit. And while his fellow candidates don’t want to tear into him just yet, his faux pas on the trail are legendary. He will make more of them.
What’s interesting is that there are people out there trying to get the drive-by snowball mainstream media to do slam pieces on Biden. They haven’t quite convinced the New York Times, or the Washington Post, but they did get ABC News to do a hit piece on him. And why? Those in the know in the Democrat party don’t think Biden has what it takes to defeat Trump. They are likening him to a John McCain type of candidacy against Barack Obama…he’ll go out and talk, but he doesn’t have much fight left in him, and he’ll probably concede the election at the convention.
The media has a problem with Biden. The socialist left has a problem with Biden. And there are all sorts of people in the higher reaches of the Democrat party that have a problem with Biden. He doesn’t seem to be the guy that can bring the party together… he seems to be the guy “who’s turn it is to get the nomination”. And I thought only Republicans were that stupid! (I’m looking at John McCain and Bob Dole!)
IF, and there’s a long way to go before the Dems’ pick their candidate next July, but IF Joe Biden is around way down the road, it is going to be a cakewalk for Donald Trump. He will do to Biden exactly what he did to Hillary. You think he was nasty with her? Wait until he sinks his teeth into “Sleepy Joe”.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
