A new poll reveals Democrats prefer an imaginary, unnamed presidential candidate over Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, and other top contenders.
A poll by USA Today and Suffolk University reveals a plurality of Democrats would prefer to vote for a previously unheard of candidate to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, with most Democrats choosing the option “someone entirely new” over former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Beto O’Rourke, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Cory Booker, Representative Elizabeth Warren, Governor Michael Bloomberg, Senator Amy Klobuchar, or, in dead last place, failed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
59 per cent of Democrats polled suggested they would be “excited” in the event that an unknown person should decide to run to run, while only 53 per cent shared similar excitement about the prospect of Biden running for president. No other candidates received excitement from more than 50 per cent of those polled.
Assuming no dark horse candidate appears to satisfy Democrats’ desire to vote for an unfamiliar face, Biden and O’Rourke seem well poised to secure the nomination in 2020. Biden and his advisers have reportedly considered running alongside O’Rourke, while establishment Republicans are convinced that a unity ticket between Biden and Mitt Romney could be the secret to unseating President Trump.
As the race for 2020 comes closer, many of the candidates named have already created controversies for themselves. Biden claimed he would have “beat the hell” out of President Trump if given the opportunity, while O’Rourke quietly met with Obama in anticipation and became a target of conservative news in the process, and Cory Booker recently assured voters that he is, in fact, a heterosexual.
It is worth noting that, despite previous complaints from Democrats, the top three named contenders are all straight white men. CNN previously released a poll suggesting Sanders and O’Rourke were the top contenders, and received a flurry of complaints from viewers that the top contenders where all of the same gender, race and sexual preference.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
