Blame CNN fawning all over him and the rest of MSM colluding to cover up the Hunter Biden's scandal and the optics of the shady deals with Ukraine helping to elect him illegitimately. Bernie would've trounced his sorry dementia ridden self had he had the backbone to go low as is unfortunately required in politics in the primaries. I can't attest to whether Trump would've beaten him if the scandal had come out but it merits discussion regardless of Trump's BS fraud claims. Bernie is still sharp as ever even after a heart attack and Biden can't even read off cue cards. Not to mention the endless pandering to the crazy woke mob and escalating the war in Ukraine to benefit defense contractors. And yet, he takes no responsibility for failures and consistently blames convenient bogeyman Russia/Putin for his failures. Trump may have been a clown and horrible but at least in some sick way he entertained me. Biden is just a career politicians
I am not an American but I have tons of conservative friends up here in Canada and many actually like Bernie and if they were American would have backed him over Trump. Bernie would have beaten Trump in 2016 and 2020 and he would have gotten the minority populations on his side. He is essential and doesn't talk about personal nonsense and has no time for it, IIRC one of Hillary attack ads on Bernie has woke language that has nothing to do with anything. For many suburban people this comes off as unpolite and standoffish but to many people who work and just want to get through life someone like Bernie is a breath of fresh air.
If you generally ask people why they hate the democrats its not because of the issues especially economics. Its the cultural nonsense that not many people really like having forced on them. Covid mandates made this worth especially with the hypocrisy of democratic officials in the last 2 years.
Granted I don't want social conservatives forcing their agenda on everyone else which is what the GOP happens to support.
Except Bernie will never win the primary with his lack of appeal to minorities especially African-Americans. Now, TBH Biden then went overboard and more to appeal to Af-Am while ignoring the like of Hispanics, and to this day, still does that. All the talk about "historical first" as if Hispanics are not also (somewhat of) minority and has issues that they care about also.
I think Bernie would have won them over. However the current crop of democrats are doing just fine with minorities .
Every election minority support for the democrats drop in a significant manner because the democrats basically say. We're not those guys and we support BLM, and other minority interests while doing nothing for minorities in their day to day lives. Example being defund the police. No black person who lives in the projects wants less police, they want reform but cops are important. America's problem with cops isn't that there are too many of them. Its that they don't train them as proper professionals.
People voted for Biden because they thought they were voting for a moderate centrist who was going to unite this country.
Instead they got a far leftist administration hell bent on further dividing this nation.
No. People voted for Biden because he was not the other guy. Biden is a centrist. He is a safe choice. The ones dividing this country fly MAGA flags, wear MAGA hats and insist the election was stolen because MAGA. The ones dividing this country throw their head in the sand and scream support for the insurrectionists who tried to hang Pence and Pelosi for following the Constitution. The ones dividing the country are banning books and cancelling free speech. Telling people they can not be gay or black or Muslim. THOSE are the people dividing this country.
Most people voted for Biden because in the 4 years of Trump because much of what he campaigned on he failed to follow through on, also his handling oh Covid did piss a lot of people off.
Had Covid19 not happened or Trump took it seriously then I reckon Trump would have been easily re-elected.
This country is in a "total disaster" because MAGAs are still out there insisting the November election, the one coming up in five months, is rigged. They are training gun toting thugs to reject ballots from anyone other than MAGA candidates.
It's statements like these that make everyone understand how out of touch you are as well as the Democratic party. It's also why Biden has done nothing to help the current state of affairs and why both the 2022 and 2024 elections will be brutal for the Dems. Keep up the good work.
A saw a video recently the GOP campaigns on populism but governs like an oligarchy.
Well the democrats campaign on wokeness and SJW policies and govern like an oligarchy.
Its the same pig and you are choosing on your brand of lipstick.
