MATH: Andrew Yang Ends 2020 Presidential Campaign

The unconventional candidate is calling it a wrap.

Andrew Yang is ending his 2020 Presidential campaign after two low finishes in the first two Democratic contests of the primary. The news broke on Tuesday night as initial results from the New Hampshire primary came in.

The unconventional candidate waged a surprisingly resilient campaign, out-polling and outlasting several Democratic senators and governors. After polling in the high single digits, it appears that much of his support in the two early primary states may have coalesced behind Bernie Sanders. Yang took around 5% of the vote in the Iowa caucuses, and early New Hampshire primary returns show him with around 3% in the granite state.

The signature element of Andrew Yang’s campaign was a proposal he deemed the “Freedom Dividend,” in which every American citizen over 18 would be given a universal basic income of $1,000 a month.

The entrepreneur explained his decision to drop out in an interview with the Atlantic, stating that he didn’t want to take money and votes from his supporters if he didn’t feel he could win the primary and general election.

Yang’s campaign received support from some rogue Republicans sympathetic to the concept of a universal basic income, an idea his presidential run will likely be credited for placing on the political map.

With Yang’s departure from the race, the existing Democratic primary field consists of ten candidates.

Yang himself has predicted that many of his supporters would turn to Bernie Sanders, possibly providing a discernible boost to the Vermont socialist senator in future state primaries and caucuses. Early results of the New Hampshire primary shows Sanders leading Pete Buttigieg by approximately 29% to 22%.

Really? Joe Biden Appears to Forget the Words to the Pledge of Allegiance

A new low?

Joe Biden appeared to forget the words to the Pledge of Allegiance during a campaign speech in Wisconsin on Tuesday.

“I pledge allegiance to the United States of America, one nation, indivisible, under God, for real.”

What?

The real pledge, which most fifth graders who don’t attend left-wing public schools can recite, reads as follows.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Biden’s improvised version doesn’t even bear resemblance to the actual Pledge of Allegiance.

Biden’s campaign team may have assumed that the Democrat elder wouldn’t need the promptings of a teleprompter in order to correctly repeat the Pledge of Allegiance, but they overestimated his memory.

The first presidential debate is scheduled for next Tuesday, and Biden’s handlers may be panicking as the Democrat candidate appears slipping into his previous routine of questionable and troubling mental gaffes. If he were to win in November, he’d be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day by far.
