If you follow the polls, you know that the overwhelming majority of Americans want someone other than Joe Biden on the ticket.
For that matter, the majority are also saying that they would prefer someone other than Donald Trump.
Both are being dismissed because of their ages, yet both of them are dominating their respective primary races.
To that point, Biden campaign co-chair Mitch Landrieu believes there is no way that Joe Biden will ever quit this race on his own.
Joe is Staying
Biden can barely remember his own name these days, but the primary race and polling numbers just don’t jibe.
Voters have an option in Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), but they refuse to pull the handle for him in the primary races.
Phillips gave up his committee assignments and decided not to run for re-election to the House solely to give voters the option they were asking for, and they have completely ignored his campaign.
I have often stated that Biden is in this for the long haul to protect Hunter Biden from prosecution, and I still believe that.
And while I do believe that Democrats could force Biden out of the race, I think it will be very difficult to push him out of the race.
The special counsel report on Biden’s handling of the classified documents has given Democrats all the ammo they need, but we are seeing a massive pushback on that from both Democrats and the White House, so it does not appear that the 25th Amendment will be activated to remove him.
Landrieu is now openly stating that Biden has no intention of stepping away, and his focus is now on pushing Biden's alleged accomplishments.
He stated, “I’m in the process of doing it right now. And demonstrating that the president’s accomplishments have really been second to none, and Joe Biden’s going to get up every day.
“The one thing Joe Biden is never going to do is — count on this — he is never, ever going to quit. Because that’s not what he’s done his entire life.”
This race is going to be Trump v. Biden 2.0, no matter what polling says about who the American people want in this election.
Both sides had a chance to remove these men from the picture in primary races, and both sides have chosen to move forward with candidates the polling says few want to see in the general election.
