Tucker Carlson suggested that the Democratic Party establishment would find a way to replace primary frontrunner Joe Biden before election day, stating that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo would emerge as an emergency nominee in Biden’s stead.
Carlson was speaking on a podcast about Biden’s campaign prospects.
“I sincerely and totally believe that Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee on election day.” Carlson referenced Biden’s increasing tendency towards mental gaffes and forgetfulness.
“He shouldn’t be working still. I’m not being mean. I know him. I’ve always liked him. But that’s true. And so, those are two trains traveling toward each other at high speed. Two competing imperatives. We’ve got to win, but we’ve got a guy who can’t win. Therefore, they’re gonna replace him.
If I had to bet I would think Andrew Cuomo would be the most likely to replace Biden.”
Cuomo has attracted attention from leading Democrats for his response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic in New York, with his regular briefings on the situation surpassing the media attention devoted to Biden’s rambling and odd recreation room livestream appearances. Cuomo’s public profile throughout the crisis has been second only to President Trump.
A late-game swap of Biden for a more vital candidate such as Cuomo would be essentially unprecedented in American campaign history, but it’s not entirely impossible. With growing questions regarding Joe Biden’s mental acuity and possible cognitive decline, it’s foreseeable that an effort could be made at the Democratic convention to substitute in a candidate like Cuomo. Such a swap would need democratic socialist Bernie Sanders to be out of the picture, as his nomination would be unacceptable to the party elites.
The only recent comparable example to such a situation would be the 1968 Democratic Primary, when Hubert Humphrey emerged as the Democratic nominee for President despite not winning any state primaries or caucuses.
POLL: President Donald Trump Leads Joe Biden Nationally, 48% to 46%
The President has come roaring back.
A new poll conducted by British newspaper the Sunday Express in conjunction with the Democracy Institute reveals that President Donald Trump is leading Democratic challenger Joe Biden by a margin of 48% to 46%. The national poll was conducted last week.
Perhaps more significantly, the poll reveals that President Trump is handily leading Biden in the most crucial of swing states, leading with voters in the states of Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by a handy margin of 48% to 43%. If such polls translate to election day victory margins, President Trump could secure an even greater election night victory than he did in 2016, taking 309 votes in the electoral college by flipping Minnesota red.
Democracy Institute Director Patrick Basham claims that the poll’s methodology accounts for a population of ‘shy’ Trump supporters who are reluctant to respond to polls from corporate mainstream media networks. The poll shows a wide enthusiasm gap in the President’s favor, but Basham claims that 71% of planned Trump supporters are cautionary about revealing that they publicly support the President’s campaign for re-election.
Voters describe the economy as the most important issue in the election, with coronavirus containment coming in second. A majority of voters currently disapprove of President Trump’s coronavirus response in the poll, suggesting the President has room to grow his base of support by making progress in halting the coronavirus pandemic.
The poll is the latest suggesting that the presidential election is far more competitive than methodologically challenged polls from corporate media outlets suggest.
