the gig. And those of us who are observant and have above-room-temperature IQ know it, too. Look at the numbers, folks!
Biden is hemorrhaging votes among Hispanics, his margin among women is dwarfed by opposition from men, and Black support for Trump is up to 22%, “a level unseen in Presidential politics for a Republican in modern times.”
…. Aside from polls, though, it’s worth looking at how the insiders are reacting, and they seem to be giving up on Slow Joe. Obama insider David Axelrod recently tweeted that Biden should think about withdrawing from the race: “Only @JoeBiden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party. What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it’s in HIS best interest or the country’s?”
Yes, that’s hardly a vote of confidence. THAT is how people like Axelrod publicly try to dissuade Biden from running without looking like a total traitor. Axelrod has to be very careful. He wants to be rid of Dementia Joe, but he also doesn’t want to damage the Democrat party as a whole. THAT is a tricky maneuver!
Me? I dearly hope Biden runs again. But I’m not at all sure he will. He won’t win, and in terms of him not running, Kamala is the hitch in the Democrats’ giddy-up! How do you pass her over for, say, Gavin Newsom without losing voters in the Black community?
With apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein: How do you solve a problem like KaMAla?
