The likelihood of the DNC nominating Joe Biden to face Trump in this year’s general election is substantially high.
Despite the plethora of issues surrounding the former vice president (from the Ukraine controversy to countless gaffes and the tendency to lash out when confronted by uncomfortable questions), he’s still very much in the game. Of course, this hasn’t happened without elite super PACs and other powers that be working behind the scenes.
While many Americans believe that Biden will win his party’s nomination, whether or not he has the stamina to handle President Trump is another matter entirely. Reports from Washington Examiner confirm that even the former vice president’s own base doesn’t believe that he’ll be able to effectively deal with attacks from Trump.
Why Biden Can’t Handle Trump
President Trump is known for being sharp, on-the-ball, incredibly focused, and exceptional at debating opponents. The exact opposite is true of Biden who is infamous for his oral errors and tendencies to stammer at the most inopportune times. Regardless of politics, most folks in America can agree that a one-on-one debate between Trump and Biden would result in the latter being completely and utterly destroyed by Trump.
The former vice president’s own supporters admit this themselves. According to banking specialist Julie Polenchar, Biden isn’t always the “smoothest” when faced with pressure. Polenchar expressed that she would hate for this shortcoming to impact Democrats’ chances of defeating President Trump.
Other voters questioned how the former vice president plans to combat Trump’s “dirty tricks” or deal with the impeachment trial which continues to negatively portray Biden.
The Ukraine Factor
Despite his best efforts, the 2020 Democrat cannot hide from his past admission of blackmailing Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating Hunter Biden’s employer. Moreover, Biden cannot escape the fact that he used his power as vice president to get his son on the board of a natural gas company. All of these factors will impact the 2020 general election if Biden is the nominee.
Thus far, the former vice president and his DNC elites have their work cut out for them. Biden may be able to weasel his way into winning the nomination; however, if his own base lacks confidence in him, the likelihood of Democrat voters simply staying home in November becomes exponentially higher.
