The Fix is In: Amy Klobachar Quits Dem Primary, She & Mayor Pete to Endorse Joe Biden to Stop Bernie

The establishment is coalescing around Joe Biden.

Sen. Amy Klobachar (D-MN), the establishment-friendly moderate who billed herself as the uniter needed to defeat President Donald Trump in this year’s election, is out of the Democrat presidential primary.

Klobachar quit the primary on Monday, shortly after South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg also threw in the towel. These withdrawals come after former Vice President Joe Biden’s domination in the South Carolina primary this weekend. Both candidates are expected to formally endorse Biden today.

“Klobuchar outlasted several better-known and better-funded Democrats, thanks to a better-than-expected third-place finish in in New Hampshire. But she couldn’t turn that into success elsewhere, as she struggled to build out a campaign that could compete across the country and had poor showings in the next contests,” the Associated Press wrote about Klobachar’s sudden departure from the race.

The Democrat establishment has apparently picked Biden as their best chance to defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), despite his frequent gaffes on the campaign trail and his incredibly poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.

“You launched Bill Clinton, Barack Obama to the presidency. Now you launched our campaign on the path to defeating Donald Trump,” Biden said after his victory in South Carolina on Saturday.

“My buddy Jim Clyburn! You brought me back!” he added.

Biden took shots at Sanders, the independent candidate who has emerged as an unlikely front-runner in the race.

“If the Democrats want a nominee who’s a Democrat—a lifelong Democrat—a proud Democrat—an Obama-Biden Democrat—then join us!” Biden said.

“Most Americans don’t want the promise of revolution. They want more than a promise, they want results,” he added.

If it wasn’t obvious enough that Biden is the choice of the Democrat Party establishment, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has come out with an endorsement of Biden as well.

“Democrats need a candidate who can assemble the largest, most diverse coalition possible to defeat Trump and lead our country following the trauma of Trump’s presidency,” Reid said in a statement released on Monday. “That candidate is Joe Biden.”

Billionaire oligarch Mike Bloomberg and Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) remain in the race as mainstream candidates who could dilute the vote from Biden. Sanders still has a strong chance to be the Democrat’s presidential nominee, but the establishment will not make it easy for him heading into the all-important Super Tuesday, which is tomorrow.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November

They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.

Published

on

New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.

Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.

While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.

Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.

With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.

The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
