YAWN … Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton & Bernie Sanders Top 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates in New Poll
POLL SHOWS THAT 3 DINOSAURS LEAD FOR DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR 2020 …
According to a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, with more than two years to go before the 2020 presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden is the early favorite to represent the Democrats, Hilary Clinton is second and Bernie Sanders third. That is correct, the same old tired usual suspects are the leading candidates to take on President Trump in 2020. So the Democrats have the following as their best presidential candidates. Crazy Uncle Joe Biden, did we forget to mention CREEPY was first with 32%, Hillary Clinton, two time presidential candidate loser and the women who lost lost in the greatest political upset in history was second with 18%. And socialist Bernie Sanders was third with 16%. Doesn’t that just make you want to run out and vote? Did we mentions that for the 2020 elections, Biden will be 77, Hillary Clinton 72 and Sanders 78. What is this Jurassic Park 10? Honestly, I just can’t see Hillary running again after her 2016 debacle and her never getting over her loss. Sorry, but Biden and Sanders are too old. However, something tells me that Sanders will run and take the Democrat party of the liberal socialists cliff.
Others making the poll and showing the further lack of a Democrat bench were Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was fourth with 10%, who will be 71. She was followed by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) 6%, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg 3%, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) 2%, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each with 1%. Wow, that’s it? Others who have been rumored to be running are Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, Former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder, Former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick.
With more than two years to go before the next presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden is the early favorite to represent the Democrats and try to unseat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to a new poll.
Biden was the choice of 32 percent of Democrats in a Harvard CAPS/Harris June poll that was obtained by The Hill. The party’s 2016 standard bearer, Hillary Clinton, came in second with 18 percent and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was third with 16 percent.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was fourth with 10 percent of the vote.
Biden, who would be 77 on Election Day in 2020, has been one of Trump’s most vocal critics since the 2016 campaign. On at least two occasions, the former vice president has indicated that he wishes he was back in high school so that he could physically confront the president over his comments about women. (Trump responded in a tweet that Biden would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way” if they fought.)
Although Clinton has given no indication she intends to run again, both Biden and Sanders have not ruled out a run in 2020.
Among other Democrats included in the poll, The Hill reported that Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., got 6 percent, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg got 3 percent, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., got 2 percent, while Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each got 1 percent.
IS BIDEN REALLY GOING TO RUN IN 2020 FOR PRESIDENT?
On Monday Vice President Joe Biden raised the possibility that he might run for president in 2020. When asked whether he was kidding and pressed on his comment Biden stated, “I am not committed to anything, I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.” Surely he was most likely kidding, as Joe is prone to do. The 74 year old Biden would be 78 in 2020. However, all joking aside, those on the Left would probably want Biden to run and he might even be the Democrat front-runner. Which shows just how pathetic the Democrat bench really is. Biden decided not to run in 2016 following the death of his son, Beau. In retrospect, Biden would have made a much better candidate than Hillary Clinton.
“I am going to run in 2020,” Biden told a group of reporters in the Capitol when asked about his political future. “What the hell man, anyway.”
Asked if he was kidding about running, the 74-year-old paused for four seconds before saying he is “not committing not to run.”
“I am not committed to anything,” he added. “I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.”
It would be surprising if Biden decided to continue his decades-long political career, which many assumed would end once President Obama and he leave the White House next month.
Biden will be 78 in 2020 and would by far the oldest person ever to win a major-party presidential nomination if he became the Democrats’ standard bearer.
STOP THE MADNESS … BECAUSE WHAT COULD GO WRONG WITH A GAFFE PRONE BIDEN SPOUTING OFF AT THE MOUTH OVER SEAS?
According to The Politico, Hillary Clinton has VP Joe Biden on the short list to be her Secretary of State if she were to win the 2016 presidential election. Are you joking, is this a SNL skit? America, wake up, this is a “big F’n deal”. Just what America needs, Uncle Joe Biden and his gift for gaffe causing an international incident. This is a bizarre choice of person and position by Clinton. One, Biden would be 74 years old upon taking such a cabinet position. Hey Democrats, what happened to your party, is there anyone under the age of 69 in it? Two, why on earth would Hillary Clinton even reference the position of Secretary of State, the one she head under Barack Obama and committed so many scandals and crimes with the use of a private email server containing classified U.S. documents. Maybe some one should ask Team Hillary is she would allow her Sec. of State to do the same as she did while in the position? Then again, I don’t think Biden has a Foundation to fennel monies to.
What a pathetic attempt by Team Hillary to plant a story at The Politico to pander to Democrat voters who would have much preferred Biden as the Democrat nominee over her. Cuz the Democrats and media complex would never do such a thing, would they Wikileaks?
Joe Biden is at the top of the internal short list Hillary Clinton’s transition team is preparing for her pick to be secretary of state, a source familiar with the planning tells POLITICO.
This would be the first major Cabinet candidate to go public for a campaign that’s insisted its focus remains on winning the election, and perhaps the most central choice for a potential president who was a secretary of state herself.
Neither Clinton, nor her aides have yet told Biden. According to the source, they’re strategizing about how to make the approach to the vice president, who almost ran against her in the Democratic primaries but has since been campaigning for her at a breakneck pace all over the country in these final months.
“He’d be great, and they are spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to try to persuade him to do it if she wins,” said the source familiar with the transition planning.
Joe Biden … Gaffe machine
Rasmussen Poll: Democrats Want Socialist Bernie Sanders as Hillary Clinton’s Back Up If Health Issues Forced Her to Withdraw
THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY. HELL, I AM NOT EVEN SURE IT IS BILL CLINTON’S DEMOCRAT PARTY EITHER …
A recent Rasmussen poll states that 48% of likely Democrat voters believe that self-proclaimed socialist and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton’s lone rival in the 2016 Democrat primaries, should be the party’s nominee if for some reason Hillary had to step down due to health issues. According to the poll results, 48% chose Bernie Sanders, Vice President Joe Biden received 22% and 14% opted for Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the current Democratic vice presidential candidate. Another 9% wanted some one else.
First, unless Hillary Clinton does a header off the stage during a presidential debate, she will never withdraw as she cares too much about herself and she has waited her entire life for this moment. Two, what does this say about the Democrat party that would want a socialist to be their nominee? Three, Bernie fans would feel the Democrat burn as the party would never select him, if such a situation ever presented itself.
Suppose the unthinkable took place, and Hillary Clinton was forced for health reasons to step down as the Democratic presidential nominee. Who do Democrats think should take her place?
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely Democratic Voters believe Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s primary rival, should be their party’s nominee if health issues forced her out of the race. Twenty-two percent (22%) say Vice President Joe Biden should be the nominee, while only 14% opt for Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the current Democratic vice presidential candidate. Nine percent (9%) of Democrats think it should be someone else. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Among all likely voters, it’s a closer contest. Thirty-six percent (36%) choose Sanders, 20% Biden and 14% Kaine. But 21% think the Democratic nominee should be someone else.
A plurality (46%) of voters believes the media is giving too much coverage to Clinton’s health issues. Twenty-eight percent (28%) say there’s not enough coverage, while 21% rate the level of coverage as about right.
I really have to wonder who the hell the 46% is above who thinks the media is providing too much coverage to Hillary Clinton’s health issues. Like the health of the individual who would be president is not an important thing especially when she has a history of collapsing, fainting, concussions, blood clots, not being able to climb stairs and generally looking like she is in just poor health. Where is the too much coverage? The media and the America people should be demanding we know her health history.
HMM, IS THIS A TRIAL BALLOON BY BIDEN IN CASE HILLARY RUNS INTO LEGAL TROUBLE?
In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” Vice President sat down with co-anchor Robin Roberts and stated he “would have been the best president.” He was asked whether he had any regrets not running for president seeing how weak Clinton appears and the surprise surge by socialist Bernie Sanders. However, Biden, who lost his son Beau Biden to cancer, seemed to not have his heart in running following his death. In retrospect, who knew that Joe Biden would have been the Democrat presidential nominee had he run. So are there any regrets … Biden said that ruling out a White House run in 2016 was the right decision for Biden and his family.
“No one should ever seek the presidency unless they’re able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” said Biden, who announced in October following the death of his son that he would not be pursuing the presidency. “And Beau was my soul. I just wasn’t ready to be able to do that.”
Vice President Joe Biden says he “would have been the best president” if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family.
Speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May.
“No one should ever seek the presidency unless they’re able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” he said. “And, Beau was my soul. I just wasn’t ready to be able to do that. But, so, my one regret is my Beau’s not here. I don’t have any other regrets.”
Ultimately I ask myself, how pathetic is it that the so-called Party of the big tent has no real candidate to follow Barack Obama and the Democrat party has no bench. In the end, Joe Biden was their best option, crazy uncle Joe . WOW!!!
