Skip to comments.‘Weaker candidate than Hillary’: Democrats cast deep doubt on Biden’s 2020 value
Posted on 02/12/2019 8:13:31 AM PST by Olog-hai
Joe Biden is everything a Democratic political consultant should love: Hes experienced, well-liked, and his poll numbers look great against Donald Trump.
And yet many party strategists have a bleak assessment of his potential 2020 campaign: Its a bad, bad idea. [ ]
McClatchy interviewed 31 Democratic strategists pollsters, opposition research experts, media consultants, ex-party officials, and communications specialists from across the country about a potential Biden campaign. Nine agreed to speak on the record; all others quoted anonymously do not plan to be affiliated with any candidate running in the presidential primary.
Strikingly, these conversations yielded a similar view: The Democratic political community is more broadly and deeply pessimistic about Bidens potential candidacy than is commonly known. While these strategists said they respect Biden, they cited significant disadvantages for his campaign from the increasingly liberal and non-white Democratic electorate to policy baggage from his years in the Senate and a field of rivals that includes new, fresh-faced candidates.

OLD and WHITE are DEAL BREAKERS in AOC’s Democrat Socialist Party.
“....Hes experienced, well-liked,....”. I’d be willing to bet there are a lot of ladies who might disagree with that. Photos in 3,.....2,....
I dont know.
Hillary was the weakest candidate I ever saw.
Shes so out of shape that they had to toss her into her van like she was a sack of old bats.
He will be 78 next year. He’s an old line Democrat, he’s a white heterosexual male. He’s probably perceived as not being radical enough for today’s Democrats.
He’s just not going to excite the radical Democrats of today.
Now there are hit pieces on Biden. Lol. It is so obvious that Soros has selected the ignorant slut Camel Harris as his chosen one and he has instructed the media to toe the line.
Democrat, Joe Biden is a 100% “ZERO”. He always has been a low life zero and he always will be...Mr. Biden is simply, dumb, dumber & dumbest...period.
Anyone that even considers Biden as POTUS “material” and would cast their vote for him is either stoned with smoking too much reefer, drinking too much alcohol or is simply totally insane.
Biden is an ass, but when he was a U.S. senator he had a reputation for going to bat for his constituents. If the economic and political climate are “right” (meaning they both suck for average people) I think he’d have a fair chance of getting elected.
Baseball bats or vampire bats?
You just know that there is a #metoo in this guy’s closet. Not to mention a lot of his “colorful” statements will be brought up.
And one of DemAOCrats will spring it in the primaries.
Mustn't forget the freshest face of all dedicated to stopping global warming...
But then, I "snorted" all the way to November 2008, too.
The article neglects to mention that he emits a serious gaffe every other paragraph. State-run media would have to run cover for him every speech or public appearance, or tie him rigidly to a teleprompter. They’d need to control him as a mouthpiece for the real writers.
He frequently sounds like he’s had major brain surgery a few times.
I recall early in 2008 someone telling me there was NO WAY a person with the name "Barack Hussein Obama" would be elected President of the United States. And I believed him.
Because what America needs is somebodys crazy, old pervert Uncle running the show!
Against Trump? Think again.
Remember, Reagan swam upstream against Democratic Congresses and won with his agenda.
There’s no “probably” about it. The radical leftists are taking over.
So many of us said the same thing about an empty suit who gave the keynote at the 2004 DNC Convention and then announced February 10, 2007. At least he was young then.
Obama won with the help of the RINOs that ran against him, never mind the RINO that preceded him.
they are admitting that Hillary is a weak candidate ?
She really is the best of what they got...
Will they attack each other or just Trump ,LOL
