Bernie Sanders Casts Doubt On A Biden Win This November
Bernie Sanders has come out of the woodwork to tell Biden how to properly run his campaign against Trump. Sanders claims that Biden is going to lose a large number of progressives with his shift to the center. He wants Biden to focus on social programs and other winning topics that will cause him to lose moderate voters. Sanders talked to WaPo about how he feels Biden is alienating progressives.
"The Washington Post reports that Sanders has “told associates that Biden is at serious risk of coming up short in the November election if he continues his vaguer, more centrist approach, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive talks.”
"Sanders is chiefly concerned that the younger, more progressive wing of the party isn’t getting the attention “it deserves,” per The Washington Post, and that Biden has sacrificed the future of the party — Democratic socialists and far-left Millennial and Generation Z voters — in order to win a larger percentage of the electorate."
“The senator has identified several specific changes he’d like to see,” the outlet notes, “saying Biden should talk more about health care and about his economic plans, and should campaign more with figures popular among young liberals, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).”
"He also encouraged Biden to focus more on Latino and young voters, groups that broadly supported Sanders during the primary. Biden has struggled to build enthusiasm among young voters, and some Democrats have expressed concerns about what they see as the campaign’s lack of outreach to Latino voters, which Sanders echoed on MSNBC.
“We got to reach out to the Latino community. You know, a lot of young people, you’ve got a lot of Latinos, African Americans who may not vote. They’re not gonna for Donald Trump, that’s for sure, but they may not vote at all,” Sanders said. “How do we bring them into the political process? How do we get them to vote?”
A Biden campaign adviser, Symone Sanders, was asked Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” whether the campaign would take Sanders’ advice.
“We know that we have work to do. And we have said from the beginning, and Vice President Biden has been very clear about this … that we are really working to earn every single vote in this country. And we want to earn the votes of the Latino and Hispanic community,” she said."
Bernie Sanders is really one of the last people that anyone should go to for advice when it comes to winning a presidential election. So far he has struck out twice, clearly, America is not interested in his far-left policies and really Biden can't afford to alienate moderates that are on the fence when it comes to Trump. How anyone can be on the fence between what seems to be an old man that likely can't tie his own shoes and Trump is just a mystery.
