Joe Biden is sliding hard in the polls, with his black support dropping by half since early June according to one survey.
Biden is in Iowa, where his invented common-guy image should help him, but Kamala Harris’ race-based attack on Biden at the Democrat debate is hurting him.
Biden has weathered controversy over his inappropriate groping and sniffing of women and children and his past support for segregation, and has been caught telling wealthy donors that nothing would fundamentally change for them if he is president.
Reuters reports: “Polls show Harris, who also was in Iowa around the July 4th holiday, has surged in the Democratic race since she confronted him.
In Iowa, a Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll taken after the debate showed Biden still leading, but Harris jumping into second place ahead of rivals Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, both U.S. senators.
A national Reuters/Ipsos poll also found Biden still ahead, but his support was down 8 percentage points from a similar poll earlier in June. Among blacks, support for Biden was cut in half.
A CNN national poll showed Biden’s support dropping 10 points since May.”
Reuters passage ends
A top Joe Biden 2020 campaign fundraiser informed the former vice president that he is leaving the campaign effort, spelling further trouble for the beleaguered Democrat from Delaware.
“I had actually let the campaign know I’d pulled back my support of Biden for now,” said Tom McInerney, a lawyer from San Francisco and past Obama bundler who also noted “I would imagine I’m not alone.”
“I don’t think he did well last night,” McInerney said in an interview with CNBC the day after the debate.
Biden is also being slammed for previously supporting segregation, saying in a 1975 interview that de-segregation undercuts the concept of “black pride.
The intrepid Alana Goodman reported on Biden’s 1975 NPR interview in which he said the following: “I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride.”
Biden called desegregation “a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality.”
Biden also noted that he asked “the blacks on my staff” if they felt he had a racism “in me that’s deep-seated that I don’t know.”
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden made another revelatory admission in his speech at a Carlyle Hotel fundraiser, telling wealthy financial donors that nothing would change if he is elected president.
“The truth of the matter is, you all, you all know, you all know in your gut what has to be done. We can disagree in the margins, but the truth of the matter is it’s all within our wheelhouse and nobody has to be punished. No one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change,” Biden stated.
Biden’s gaffes on the campaign trail, which continuously reveal his true thinking about race and class, are making him the enemy of the rest of the Democratic field and their supporters, and even a large cross-section of the left-wing media.
Biden is getting roundly mocked for his persistent efforts to paint himself as Barack Obama’s best friend and Obama’s favored candidate in the presidential race, despite evidence to the contrary.
“How many times is Biden gonna say something stupid?” Obama reportedly said on the 2008 campaign trail after somewhat reluctantly choosing Biden as his running mate, as reported by the tell-all book Game Change.
Obama’s top strategist threw shade at Biden when Biden tried to insinuate that he was Obama’s BFF on “Best Friends Day.”
“This is a joke, right?” Axelrod responded to Biden’s Twitter offering of a best friend bracelet to Obama.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
