Joe Biden’s PR team went to great lengths to perfectly time their candidate’s entrance into the 2020 race.
They couldn’t arrive too early and allow another big name, perhaps Hillary Clinton, to overshadow their announcement. They also wanted to make sure that Biden’s groping accusers got out ahead of the announcement as well.
If they came into the already crowded space too late, however, they risked appearing like a spoiler…and we all know how the democrats like to root for the underdog.
So they came up with a point in time that they believed would skyrocket Biden to the top fo the polls, (which it did), and then just hope that ol’ Joe doesn’t gaffe too hard and ride that moonshot into the primaries.
For awhile, it seemed as though that might be the case. Today, the first signs of a a struggle for Biden have emerged, however.
A poll of Minnesota Democrat presidential primary voters released over the weekend shows that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has overtaken former Vice President Joe Biden as the frontrunner in Minnesota, a major development that highlights both Warren’s national surge and Biden’s weakening lead ahead of the first debates.
Warren, at 21 percent, leads Biden’s 20 percent in the Change Research survey, conducted June 8 to June 12. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) comes in third with 19 percent, while home state Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is in fourth at 16 percent. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is next with 11 percent, followed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) at 4 percent, former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) at 3 percent, Andrew Yang at 2 percent, and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, and former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julian Castro all at 1 percent…
Biden’s campaign has been criticized for its slow pace, with far fewer speaking engagements on the schedule than other candidates in the crowded field.
This has only helped to further affirm Donald Trump’s chosen nickname for Biden, “Sleepy Joe”.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
