Joe Biden does not learn from his mistakes. Time and time again, the former vice president puts his foot in his mouth.
Whenever you think Biden can’t get any worse or any more ridiculous, he does precisely that. As a result of the 2020 Democrat’s bad behavior, he’s slipped in polls, not winning one lone delegate, primary election, or caucus.
One might think that such poor outcomes would prompt the former vice president to reconsider some things; however, he’s merely doubled down on some of the worst behavior that a candidate can exhibit while campaigning: attacking American voters.
As everyone knows, Biden lost the Iowa caucus. This was an election that the former vice president expected to win, even priorly boasting that he would do well. However, after losing in Iowa, losing in New Hampshire, and polling poorly in Nevada, Biden has decided that belittling Iowa voters is his best play, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Reviewing Biden’s Latest Attacks on Iowa Voters
Instead of Biden taking responsibility for how his bad behavior contributed to his loss in Iowa, he passed the buck. During a campaign stop on Monday, the former vice president told Nevadans that Iowa voters are to blame for his loss.
Biden cavalierly dismissed Iowans as all white, “a lot of farming,” and Midwesterners. He then went on to describe his loss as an “unusual thing” before professing that he maintains the “broadest support” across the economic sector. However, if this were true, Biden wouldn’t have suffered such great losses in Iowa and New Hampshire; he also wouldn’t be a low-polling candidate in Nevada if he truly had the “broadest support” behind him.
Pride Comes Before the Fall
The manner in which Biden has chosen to address voters makes it very clear that he views himself as superior. In the former vice president’s mind, he is entitled to the votes of the “farmers” and “Midwesterners” that he so casually denigrates.
Biden’s arrogance and hubris also explains why he has no issues with telling citizens to vote for someone else when they don’t 100% agree with him. Ultimately, the former vice president thinks he’s doing Iowans a favor by running; this type of mindset is precisely what will engender his downfall.
No one should hold their breath in waiting for Joe Biden to stop denigrating the people he wants to vote for him. If he continues on his current course of action (which he inevitably will), Biden will only keep sinking in polls and struggling to raise funds, all while failing to land any delegates or wins in primary states. Eventually, dropping out of the race will be his only option.
