I'm glad that voters are swayed by the phony #metoo bullshit.
I want Joe to win the nomination, with either Tim Ryan or Eric Swalwell as his VP choice.

We'll only beat Trump if we nominate a moderate like Biden. All the Never-Trumpers have said that they won't vote for a socialist. I also think the suburban married women, who voted Democratic in 2018, feel the same way.
Democrats need to stop catering to young people who don't vote. Who cares what they think on Twitter.

Honestly, I wasn't a "huge" Biden fan until the media (and even/especially MSNBC, of which I am a daily viewer) started going after him rabidly. I saw day twelve of the "he raped he shoulders! he's too old! he's 'problematic!'" and thought to myself they're doing it again! This is Clinton email scandal all over, where the media is appointing itself as the arbiter of the election (in this case, primary) and driving coverage of a story that I genuinely believe the vast majority of democrats (outside of the fucking nutso 'twitter' woke brigade) DO NOT CARE about. As time passes and Biden DOESN'T lose support, I'm just waiting for the "woke" pundits to start opining on how the democratic base is "problematic." Go fuck yourselves, we can decide for OURselves.
tl;dr: we (dems) won't let the media decide our primary candidate for us, so STOP TRYING.
|by Anonymous||reply 13||04/13/2019|
Finally, a hill worth dying on, Biden's reticence to keep his hands to himself! Because the Dems don't enough candidates to choose from in 2020. We'll you know, when you eliminate all those useless females anyway.

Once he gets out on the campaign trail, Joe will start showing his age. As, probably, will Bernie. But the real problem with Joe is his long history and paper trail. There's lots of film footage and lots of quotes that will all start "surfacing" -- and more than anything, two words: Anita Hill. That was part of the problem with Hillary: too much baggage, too much oppo research already done and on the shelf.

He runs, Trump wins...guaranteed.
Another John Kerry if ever there was.
The man is a joke. No wonder he appeals to all the pearl-clutching, middle-of-the-road, corporatist Dems on this fucking site.

I think we learned from 2016, that the younger generation do not vote in big numbers, or they think it's funny to vote for Harimbe or Harry Styles. So the landline poll may be more accurate, as these people are more likely to drag their asses to the voting booths on Election Day. The younger people are more likely to support candidates in theory, but will be too busy on twitter trying to get some celebrities attention or making some stupid joke to actually vote.

Who gives a shit what progressives, heavily concentrated in California, want? Winning the popular vote didn’t do dick for us in 2016. This will be a blue collar, middle class election fought in the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin. Transgender rights won’t matter.

You keep repeating fake facts which have already been disproved in other threads, R31. Young people are not voting any less than in the past and the 2018 midterms showed an actual 30 year peak.
|by Anonymous||reply 35||04/13/2019|
We don't need to bash California, please. They are the ATM of any candidate. They voted for Hillary in both the primary and the general election in huge numbers - not Bernie. With that said, this is about the Midwest, keeping VA and being competitive in FL. Woke issues can’t be the focus at the moment
|by Anonymous||reply 36||04/13/2019|
The only thing that matters is 270 electoral votes. That’s what we need to focus on, not the polls which reflect nothing more than the popular vote. It’s time to get back to the nitty gritty of Democratic politics. We’re going old school, and nobody’s better for the job than Joe Biden. He’d already ensure that we add Pennsylvania back to the blue column. I wouldn’t care if he whipped his dick out on the campaign trail, he’s not losing PA to Trump.

1. Biden is NOT Kerry. World of difference, starting with the magic word CHARISMA. Kerry, the literal west-coast elitist, could NEVER make a hall of white male union workers cheer for him, but Biden could, does, and will continue to.
2. I was two years old when the Anita Hill hearings happened. If you think the democratic base, which we are continuously being told is younger and more diverse, cares what happened almost 30 years ago, a time span in which be born, have kids and then the kids could have kids (young, but totally possible), then you are delusional. Anita Hill will have very little impact on this primary (I predict). I certainly won't be voting on it.

Joe is the man to beat. There are some good people running on the dem side, but Joe is the best qualified, and the only one who can beat Trump. That may change later on, but I doubt it. And to top it all off the republicans (and especially Trump) are scared to fucking death of Joe Biden getting the nomination. That's why they will do everything they can to destroy him.
