Bernie’s Felon-Vote Gamble Has Biden Trouncing Him in The Polls

Biden’s team likely smelled the blood in the democratic water after Bernie’s bizarre stance became public, choosing to introduce the centrist former VP as an official candidate just days later.

Joe Biden

Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist from Vermont, is no stranger to off-the-wall ideas and policy initiatives, but he may have gone too far this time.

During a recent town hall even on CNN, Sanders floated a shocking stance he hold:  That incarcerated felons should have the right to vote.  Note the word “incarcerated” in there:  Bernie isn’t talking about the restoration of voting rights for rehabilitated Americans, he’s hoping to put polling stations in penitentiaries.

The idea was so stunning that even host Chris Cuomo was compelled to ask if convicted terrotists such as the Boston Marathon Bomber should have the right to vote from prison.  Sanders responded affirmatively, kick-starting a controversy that will haunt him for months to come.

Right on cue, centrist democrat Joe Biden officially jumped into the race, perhaps smelling some blood in the water as the democrats continue to chew on one another in the crowded pool.

This has worked wonders for Biden according to the polls.

Former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads his closest rival by 14 points, according to a Morning Consult poll released Tuesday.

The national poll of registered voters shows that Biden currently enjoys 36 percent backing, while Sanders only has 22 percent support.

The tracking poll shows a six-point jump in Biden’s support since announcing his run for president, while Sanders dipped two points from the previous week after advocating for criminal felons to have the right to vote.

Biden is running a far more middle-of-the-road campaign than Bernie, directly targeting the working class voters of America while framing his campaign as the antithesis to that of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Now it will be up to voters on the left to make the call.

Gretchen Whitmer Takes Heat For Marching With Protesters After Months Of Cracking Down With Social Distancing Orders

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is taking a whole lot of heat after she decided to violate her own lockdown orders in order to march shoulder-to-shoulder with protesters in a march to support George Floyd who was killed at the hands of a law enforcement officer in Minneapolis. Whitmer was photographed participating in the event, sitting side-by-side with activists who were demanding that police brutality be brought to an end. The photograph has angered many residents, along with GOP Rep. Lynn Afendoulis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Social distancing is critical to stop the spread of COVID-19—unless you have a great photo op. ⁦And control,” Afendoulis tweeted. https://twitter.com/LynnAfendoulis/status/1268623499142279168 Whitmer maintained some of the strictest social distancing guidelines in the nation throughout the coronavirus pandemic, many of which are still in effect — including a mandate to maintain 6 feet of separation in public gatherings. A spokeswoman for Whitmer, Tiffany Brown, denied the governor violated her own social distancing guidelines by attending the protests. “The governor took precautions for engaging in an outdoor activity, including wearing a mask even though it is not required outdoors under the order,” Brown told the Detroit News. She also noted that the order included a provision that said: “Nothing in this order shall be taken to abridge protections guaranteed by the state or federal constitution.” Brown went on to add that “includes the right to peaceful protest. The state’s website has a FAQ section that says any protest requires participants to be six feet apart as per the usual social distancing guidelines. “Persons may engage in expressive activities protected by the First Amendment within the State of Michigan but must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the…

Stacey Abrams Says She’s Not Joined In Protesting So As Not To ‘Distract From Their Message’

Published

on

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams came out and stated that she’s not joined in the protests happening across her state because she’s afraid her presence will distract from the message being pushed by those who are putting on these events. Abrams, who failed to win the governorship of Georgia, appeared on CNN where she revealed the reason for her absence during an interview. “I appreciate the instinct of leaders to join in these protests, but too often, our presence distracts from their message,” she said. Reports indicate that Abrams is actually on the short list of potential vice president candidates for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. Abrams did reveal that she’s helping the movement responsible for the protests by helping to secure money for bail and lawyers for those who are arrested. “I understand the instinct to be there. But having been on the other side, having been an activist and a protester, I have a very visceral reaction, and my conscience tells me I need to stay out of the way and let the attention focus on the demonstrators,” Abrams added. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: As a college student, Abrams helped lead protests after Los Angeles police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King, a black construction worker, in 1992. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died last week after a white police officer in Minneapolis pressed a knee to his neck for more than nine minutes. Floyd lost consciousness and was later pronounced dead at a hospital. It seems more likely that Abrams is just trying to keep herself out of trouble by not joining in on the protests. However, she’s definitely doing her part to keep the unruly chaos active by bailing out criminals and vandals, so perhaps it’s best she not show up…
