Petrified Dems Are Desperately Hoping For A Biden Comeback
Establishment Dems are afraid that Bloomberg's money may not be enough to defeat Sanders. So many are now hoping that Biden has gained enough momentum to come out ahead on super Tuesday, but Political Analyst Marsh claims that these Dems are delusional, as the math just does not add up to a Biden win.
"The media is mostly overhyping the Joe Biden "comeback story" after the former vice president's resounding victory in South Carolina, Mary Anne Marsh and Tom Bevan agreed on "America's Newsroom" Monday.
"Everyone loves a comeback story. Joe Biden finally won something in a presidential race, third try, and I'm glad he had that day. But I think we're about to learn this is all about math. This is not about ideology or anything else. This is a math problem. ... It's a numbers game and the numbers are decidedly in Bernie Sanders' favor," said Marsh, a Democratic political analyst and former senior adviser to John Kerry."
"According to Marist College, Sanders is beating Biden 34 percent to 19 percent among likely voters in Texas, with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (15 percent), Warren (10 percent) and Buttigieg (8 percent) within shouting distance."
"YouGov/CBS News also released a poll today confirming that Sanders has a solid lead in California: He gets 31 percent support, while Biden gets 19 percent, Warren gets 18 percent, Bloomberg gets 12 percent and Buttigieg gets 9 percent. Considering house effects, though, Warren is only barely ahead of Bloomberg, 15 percent to 14 percent."
These polls were taken before Buttigieg and Steyer dropped from the race, so these numbers may change a little possibly favoring Biden. The real killer here for Biden is that many of Warren's supporters would probably back Sanders if she dropped out, which would make it nearly impossible for Biden to win. But really this is Biden's fault. The non-stop gaffes, shady deal with his son in Ukraine, and now Obama backing Bloomberg over his old buddy Joe, it seems Biden is not destined to win the primary.
