Joe Biden is having a tough time in the 2020 presidential election. Not only has he dropped massively in the polls, but he’s also taking various hits from all around the board. The former frontrunner’s multiple blunders have caused members of his own party to cringe and question whether Biden has the spine to truly go up against President Trump in a general election.
Now, Biden is facing censure from Elizabeth Warren who is presently leading him in the polls. On Sunday, Warren spoke before an audience of roughly 15,000 at Seattle, Washington’s International Fountain Park.
During this time, she seemingly issued an indirect response to Jill Biden who urged Democrat voters to “swallow a little bit” and vote for Biden, branding this as the best strategy to defeat President Trump. Warren had some choice words for the Biden camp in an apparent response to this sentiment, reports The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Reviewing Warren’s Message to Biden
Warren essentially made the case that in order for Democrats to win the 2020 election, they have to do more than simply be against President Trump. This is a commonly-held belief amongst progressives; many members of the progressive wing maintain that radical reforms, such as the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-All, etc are the best ways to ignite and energize voters. Critics of these policies, however, have stated that exclusively appealing to the far left is not a winning strategy for Democrats.
When speaking about this issue, Warren also tied in her thoughts on why she is the best candidate to win her party’s nomination:
“We’re not gonna win this by just saying ‘not Trump.’ It’s not enough to be ‘not Trump.’ I know how to fight and I know how to win.”
Playing the Losing Game
Regardless of where Democrats stand, they’re not in a very good position and President Trump will certainly be getting a second term. The reality is that the choices Democrat voters have are either radical progressive or a pseudo-centrist who cannot keep his foot out of his mouth.
No matter who Democrats nominate, their candidate isn’t going to do very well in the general election. Biden, with all his gaffes, would be absolutely destroyed on any debate stage with President Trump. Likewise, the radical policies of Sanders and Warren will serve as a turn off to Americans who are not hardcore progressives; this includes moderate Democrats, Independents, Republicans, and others.
