Nearly one in four Bernie Sanders supporters are declining to support Joe Biden for President, according to a new USA Today poll released on Saturday.
22% of Sanders supporters are planning on either voting for a third party candidate, voting for Donald Trump, or not voting at all.
The count of #NeverBiden Democrats is considerably higher than usual for a party nominee seeking the support of those who supported his primary opponents. Biden has the lowest voter enthusiasm level recorded for a Democratic presidential nominee, with many progressive Democrats either apathetic or cold to the notion of endorsing a former Vice President who has been in elected office dating back decades.
Even more former Sanders voters describe themselves as unexcited for Biden’s candidacy. 60% of Sanders supporters say they’re either not very excited or not excited all to support Biden’s campaign for President.
Earlier polling shows that 15% of 2020 Sanders voters are planning on voting for Trump specifically in the November general election. Institutional Democrats are starting smear campaigns against progressive Democrats who are declining to endorse Joe Biden, with even Sanders himself giving his former campaign press secretary the cold shoulder when asked about her refusal to get on board with the party’s elder figure.
Biden’s struggles to win over enthusiastic Sanders supporters- who form the younger contingent of the Democratic Party’s electorate- may spell trouble for the activist and volunteering prospects of his campaign. Older voters are far less likely to engage in the phonebanking and the neighborhood canvassing that are fundamentals of any serious political campaign.
However, disgruntlement with party nominees from supporters of other primary candidates is common at this point in election cycles, and Biden may prove more successful in uniting Democrats later on in the election season.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
