President Trumpís approval rating is ticking upward. Should Joe Biden be worried?
The Chicago Tribune ( New York Times reprint) ^ | March 27, 2020 | Frank Bruni

Posted on 03/27/2020 7:33:54 PM PDT by PBRCat

Joe Biden watches from the far reaches of the upper balcony as he waits and waits to be declared the de facto Democratic presidential nominee and assume leadership of his party. The coronavirus has postponed state primaries, prolonged the contest, yanked him out of the news and left him in political limbo, where he wonders if Bernie Sanders will ever acknowledge defeat and shivers in the shadow of another Democrat, Andrew Cuomo, who didn’t even run for president.

Biden has, for the moment, been dealt a remarkably frustrating hand. Sanders is sending the signal that his battle presses on by calling for another debate. Sanders holdouts and Biden-skeptical progressives are undercutting Biden by circulating videos of his most awkward recent interview moments, a pattern of behavior vividly documented by The Washington Post’s David Weigel. In his terrific newsletter “The Trailer” he noted that an MSNBC clip of Biden “was featured on ‘Rising,’ the Hill’s populism-branded morning show, in a segment titled ‘Biden CRASHES AND BURNS in multiple TV appearances.’ ” One of the show’s hosts, Krystal Ball, said to viewers, “Just ask yourself, is that the man that you want leading this response and this crisis right now?”

Bob Kerrey, the former governor of Nebraska and senator, told me “The longer this goes on, the more likely (Trump) gets reelected.”

Why should Joe be worried?

He won’t be the one running in November.

The "home" was only able to get sugar-free apple sauce instead of pudding. Should Joe Biden be worried?

Face it - Biden’s real problem is that he is senile.

Dems as usual are wrong in thinking the longer this goes on the more it hurts Trump. People will be wanting to stay with what they know, than what they don’t.

Lets be fair. Is Dementia Joe even aware of where he is?
worrying about Trump is the last thing he will be doing.

If Joe is worried today, he won't remember it tomorrow.

Trump doesn’t need to campaign. He’s showing exactly how he’s handling the 3am phone call live on TV.

And the majority of Americans will re relect him for his leadership, not for any SJW woke issues.

Biden is too demented to be worried.

The ‘Rat controllers? Yeah, they are worried.

The ‘Rat times between now and Milwaukee are going to be great entertainment.

In a couple of months the only thing he’ll have to worry about is whether they’ve run out of roast beef at the early senior buffet.

THAT's a real problem. Some serious backpedaling is in order.

...that crap like he did with Massie.
_________________________________________

Massie teamed with Amash and they got shot down in two votes in the House.

Regardless of Massie’s motives, he did not have the backing of the conservatives in the House.

No negotiation and no bill is ever clean. Everyone gives something or nothing happens. Trump is a pragmatist and so are the majority of Americans.

Yes he will. Why he is leading Trump by double digits in a new Faux poll. Never knew the senile and stupid had a poll.
