Joe Biden ended his Presidential campaign with one shocking confession
Former Vice President Joe Biden entered the Democrat Presidential primary as the “electable” candidate.
While his polling numbers nationally and in South Carolina looked strong, there was serious trouble beneath the surface.
And Joe Biden ended his Presidential campaign with one shocking confession.
There is no ideological or personal love for Joe Biden among the Democrat primary electorate.
Voters support Biden out of a cold and calculated decision that he would be the best bet to win in 2020.
But candidates running on electability can’t afford to have any chinks in the armor.
And at a closed door fundraiser, Biden admitted he can’t win key battleground states like Georgia.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Democratic strategists see Georgia as one of the party’s most promising electoral opportunities in the 2020 race against President Trump.
But Joe Biden on Tuesday poured cold water on that notion. The former vice president said at a fundraising event that Georgia, with 11 electoral votes, may be too tough a climb if he captures the Democratic presidential nomination next year. But the 36-year Delaware senator said he could boost prospects of downballot candidates.
“I may not be able to win Georgia. I think I can, but I may not be able to win it. But I can help elect a United States senator from Georgia,” Biden, 77, said at a fundraiser in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Tuesday night, according to a pool report.
Many Democrats believe the party’s presidential nominee has to win Georgia, a traditionally Republican state, in the 2020 presidential election due to changing demographics and increased voter outreach efforts.
Biden’s rivals will most certainly seize on those remarks and claim that Biden’s perceived “electability” is a fraud.
This misstep combined with leaks that Biden only plans to serve one term paints a picture of a doddering candidate that is physically and mentally incapable of performing the duties of President and is not even confident of his own abilities to win.
