Establishment Dems Are Scared The Corona Virus Killed Biden's Campaign
It looks like there may be an unexpected casualty of the Corona Virus and that's Joe Biden's campaign. The Corona Virus has made Biden nearly irrelevant since he does not currently have a position in our government. He is left just commenting about it rather than taking an active role in helping Americans deal with this pandemic. It could be that he really is laying low too as he is in the age bracket that has an 8% mortality rate. But the risk of death is not stopping Trump or Sanders from taking actions to try and serve the people. So this virus could take Biden out of the race if enough Dems notice his lack of response.
"Just days after his commanding primary victories in Florida, Arizona and Illinois, the coronavirus has turned former Vice President Joe Biden into a virtual prisoner of his Delaware home, where he’s reduced to sniping at President Trump from the family rec room."
“He’s making himself irrelevant,” Saikat Chakrabarti, a former chief of staff to Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told The Post, saying the virtual broadcasts were not helping. “We need action immediately, and Biden can’t do anything real right now.”
Biden has been forced to watch from the sidelines as President Trump steals the spotlight with daily coronavirus briefings that have been a ratings smash.
Though some experts have criticized the president for spreading inaccurate information and promoting untested antibiotics during his briefings, polls suggest Americans are increasingly pleased with his performance handling the deadly pandemic."
"The latest findings from Gallup show the president with a 49% approval rating, approaching a career high he last enjoyed in February during the height of his Senate impeachment trial. The same survey found 60% of Americans now approve of his handling of the coronavirus crisis, including more than a quarter of Democrats.
“I think Trump is being seen as handing the pandemic well by the public even though he was too late to start procuring any [personal protective equipment],” Chakrabarti said, explaining the polling bounce, adding that Biden missed his moment to make an impression. “[Trump] is the only one going up every day and talking to the American people.”
"Sen. Bernie Sanders — whose challenge to Biden for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination is sagging — has been in D.C. helping to hammer out trillions of dollars in coronavirus relief spending. The 78-year has also held several in depth coronavirus town halls via Facebook Live.
But Biden has gone nearly dark. Aside from a call with reporters, and a virtual live-stream appearance at a fundraiser on Sunday..."
Biden could be doing a lot more and getting far more involved. But if you watch his recent appearance he seems to be losing it a bit and maybe he is not really able to handle anything more than interviews from his rec room.
