CNN delivered bad news to Joe Biden that he didn’t want to hear
The rumor mill is swirling that Joe Biden is preparing to announce his presidential campaign.
The field of Democrats running for president is a giant mess and many pundits predict Biden would be an instant frontrunner.
But he just got some news that may have him thinking twice.
Biden has been teasing a 2020 campaign for months.
But a small army of candidates have already announced and are picking up their bases of support.
Room for additional candidates is running dangerously low.
To make matters worse, CNN asked a focus group of Democrat voters whether Biden should declare candidacy.
And none of them thought Biden should run.
The Hill reports:
The focus group’s dismissal of Biden is notable since the former vice president, who is expected to join the Democratic primary soon, has been leading a number of public opinion polls and is seen as the potential front-runner.
The Democrats gathered by CNN, however, said they weren’t interested in Biden. Some said they wanted a candidate who was further to the left.
“I think we need a bold, strong leadership, and you’ll find that in the progressives,” Democratic voter Carol Evans said.
“We had the standard-bearer for the kind of pragmatic centrist candidate in Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Donald Trump is now president. He is not your average political candidate, so we really need to try to think outside the box because, you know, it seems like the dude is made of rubber. Anything you throw at him just bounces off, there’s nothing that sticks,” said focus group member Michael Milisits.
CNN’s focus group rejected Joe Biden entirely.
Not only are there too many candidates, the Democrats rejected Biden for being too moderate.
The focus group stated that they wanted to nominate an even more radical candidate.
It’s no secret Democrats are moving further to the left.
However, Joe Biden is no moderate.
Biden’s long history in the Senate and White House prove that he is a radical leftist.
That is how much the party has shifted to appease its more radical wing of socialists and “social justice” advocates.
Biden being perceived as a moderate in the Democrat primary could doom his campaign before it starts.
