New polling from Rasmussen Reports released Monday reveals that a 59% of likely voters don’t expect Democratic nominee to finish out a tentative presidential term in the event he’s elected in November.
A considerable 39% of voters say it’s “very likely” Biden will leave office before completing a full term, and an additional 20% say it’s likely. Even a very strong plurality of Democrats suspect that Biden isn’t going to spend a full term as President, with 49% stating that they expect his Vice President to become President.
73% of Republicans and 57% of independents suspect the same outcome.
Biden’s supporters seem relatively ambivalent about their candidate’s merits, with the notion of simply voting against Trump being enough for the Democrat nominee to secure their support. 45% of all voters described Biden’s imminent choice of a running mate as important to their vote this fall, possibly suggesting that Biden’s vice presidential pick could make or break his candidacy. If Biden chooses someone who the public views as unsuitable for the presidency, it’s unlikely that voters who think he’ll leave office will be enthusiastic about supporting him.
Biden has been consistently questioned for what many are identifying as cognitive decline. The 77-year old former Vice President would be the oldest President to be inaugurated by far, and he has been publicly lukewarm about the hypothetical notion of seeking a second term in office if elected President.
The poll of 1,000 likely voters was conducted between August 6th and 9th.
It seems like the opposite of a sound democratic practice for a major political party to nominate a presidential candidate who is expected to leave office before a full term, but the Democratic Party seems fine with using Biden as a placeholder of sorts for his vice presidential candidate.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
