Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 21, 2019

A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll is just the latest survey showing the former VP with the biggest lead over Trump. It has Biden up 7 point over the president in a hypothetical general election matchup, 42 percent to 35 percent. Other than Bernie Sanders, who led Trump by 5 points, every other Democrat is either tied with the incumbent or trails him.

Joe Biden is taking his electability pitch to new lengths.

Every Democratic candidate is trying to make the case he or she can beat Trump " but Biden is taking the electability argument farther than any candidate in recent memory.

Biden's emphasis on his ability to win is a risky campaign strategy: It plays directly to Democrats' desire, first and foremost, to oust Trump. But if Biden stumbles in polls, his main argument to voters will vanish. Already, there are signs his favorability ratings, which spiked at the end of the Obama administration, are ticking back down since his return to the campaign trail.

Making the case for Biden's electability goes beyond simply highlighting favorable polls.

Much of the campaign's programming is geared toward building the case that the former vice president is the best candidate to take on the GOP incumbent Democrats want to kick out of office so badly that many are willing to put their ideological preferences aside.

Early general-election polls might not be predictive, but they do offer some insight. In this case, the early polls say more about Trump than they do the Democrats challenging him.


Instead of viewing this election as a left/Democrat/progressive vs. right/Republican/conservative situation ...

Democrats need to see this election as a bottom vs. up election ...

-- People at the bottom struggling just to cover an unexpected $400 emergency expense

versus

-- People at the top who have all the damn money

A poll like this ignores the reality that woever wins the nomination will gain the votes of the vast majority of the other candidate's supporters. Trump has the benefit of the media trying to assist his campaign because the owners of the media enjoy big tax cuts which are bankrupting our country.

Remember "that great Bush economy."

Remember it because it will come back to haunt you under Trump. Same plan, expecting different results? Stupidity.

Ignore the political lawlessness that the last two white male POTUS reveled in.

Vote for more of the same.
