Former Vice President Joe Biden remains atop the polls to gain the Democratic nomination for the Presidency in 2020, although he is slipping amidst a ton of gaffes that have many questioning whether he possesses the mental fitness for the position.
Biden’s strategy to maintain his lead is to lean on former President Barack Obama, who remains an incredibly popular figure among Democratic constituents.
During an appearance on “Late Night with Stephen Colbert” on Thursday night, Biden even claimed that he would love to appoint Obama, who proceeded over countless violations of the Constitution while serving as President, to a lifetime post on the Supreme Court.
“Have you called [Obama] for advice [on the campaign]?” Colbert asked. “Would you appoint him to the Supreme Court?”
“Hell yes!” he exclaimed to Colbert smiling ear-to-ear. “[But] I don’t think he’d do it. … He’s fully qualified.”
Biden even gave an overture to Barack’s wife, Michelle, implying that she would be one of his top choices for a Vice Presidential pick if he won the Democratic Party nomination.
“Have you asked Michelle Obama for advice?” Colbert asked Biden.
“Only to be my vice president,” Biden responded. “I mean …”
The crowd exploded in response with applause, but Biden was quick to walk back his comments.
“I’m only joking! Michelle, I’m joking! That was a joke,” Biden said afterward.
The clip can be seen here:
If Biden is joking, it is only because the Obamas want nothing to do with him and his embarrassing candidacy. They have distanced themselves from Biden since they left the White House and refused to endorse his presidential ambitions.
Biden claims that he implored Obama not to endorse him, a laughable claim as he struggles to fend off upstart challengers like Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who nip at his heels.
“I asked President Obama not to endorse,” Biden said. “Whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits.”
President Donald Trump has pointed out Biden’s weakness in being unable to secure the endorsement of the man whose ticket he appeared on during two successful and historic presidential elections.
“How he doesn’t get President Obama to endorse him, there has to be some reason why he’s not endorsing him,” Trump said. “He was the vice president. They seemed to have gotten along. President Obama not endorsing him is rather… a big secret.”
“Then he goes and lies and says, ‘I asked the president not to endorse me’… give me a break,” Trump added.
If Biden is unable to convince Obama into getting behind him, he will likely suffer his third failed attempt at obtaining the presidency, having already lost in the Democratic primaries after receiving very little support in 1988 and 2008.
Republican Voter Registration is Surging in Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the Runup to the November Election
This is even more important than polls.
The Republican Party is handily registering more voters than Democrats in the critical swing states of Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the advance of the 2020 presidential election, a strong sign for the GOP in the competitive states.
Republicans have registered more than 135,000 voters to their party than Democrats have since 2016, a handy lead in a state in which the margin of victory was 44,000. Pennsylvania is probably the most critical state in the 2020 election.
Republicans have registered a strong plurality of the new voters to register in Arizona since August, with 43% of these voters aligning as Republican. 26% have registered as Democrats, and 29% registered with no party affiliation or with another political party.
Did some further number crunching on the newly registered 57,000 voters in Maricopa, including those from #VoterRegistrationDay that have been input in the system. So far, good news for GOP.
GOP: +24,753 (43%)
DEM: +14,815 (26%)
Other: +16,966 (29%)

President Trump won the southwestern state by 4.5% in 2016, with rapid population growth and immigration turning Arizona into a purple state.
Republicans appear to be crushing Democrats in decisive fashion in the voter registration struggle in Florida, registering a whopping 41% more voters than the Democrat Party is in the state. The GOP registered 58,000 new Republican voters in August alone, a 91% increase when compared to August of 2016. Leading Democrats have even been sounding the alarm in the state, having lost it in 2016 with a far greater numerical voting lead then they’ll have this time.
The Joe Biden campaign has largely refrained from traditional political activism and door-knocking in the state, preferring to let their candidate speak through appearances on Sunday shows and softball interviews.
If the President wins these three states, he’s in an extremely strong position for victory, even if Biden wins Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. He’d need to hold North Carolina and Ohio to end up with 274 electoral college votes in this scenario.
These statistics are more pertinent than polls with highly questionable methodologies and flawed participant selection methods.
