Biden’s Hard Turn To The Left Fails To Draw In Young Voters

Published

on

Former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden recognizes that a critical demographic he needs to reach is young folks, many of which were pulling for Sen. Bernie Sanders during the primary race, both this year and back in 2016.

This is why he turned sharply to the left on several important policy issues, hoping this would attract that coveted demographic, but it seems his best efforts to trap the young vote have failed spectacularly.

A recent poll that was conducted by Morning Consult has found that 40 percent of the Democrats polled under 45 said they want their party to pick a nominee other than Biden to run for president, compared to 26 percent of all Democrats.

Much of the reaction against Biden, a former two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator, appears to stem from the allegations from former Senate aide Tara Reade, who claims Biden sexually assaulted her in a congressional hallway in 1993. The poll found 53% of younger Democrats thought Biden’s denial of Reade’s allegations to be credible, compared to 67% of Democrats over the age of 45. A Monmouth poll found that 45% of all voters aged 18 to 34 said they thought Reade was telling the truth.

A focus group conducted by NextGen America found a lack of enthusiasm by younger millennial and Generation Z voters in 11 swing states, including Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida. Most of those voters said they preferred Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s socialist message and didn’t see the former vice president as relatable, while others cited concerns about Reade’s allegations.

Believe it or not, the sexual assault allegations are only the tip of the iceberg. It turns out another reason young people aren’t too keen to pull the lever for Biden in November has a lot to do with his close ties to corporate interests, which to many makes him appear like your typical, run-of-the-mill career politician, something the younger voters despise with a passion.

This lack of excitement about Biden’s campaign could spell disaster for him come November, especially if Trump is cleared to hold some rallies, which always turn out to be massive events that mobilize and fire up his voter base. The left lacks this kind of enthusiasm at the moment and it really seems unlikely that Joe Biden will be able to throw some fuel on the flames to get his base all fired up.

Barr Labels Seattle, New York City, And Portland As ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions’

Published

Attorney General William Barr has come out and labeled the cities of New York, Seattle, and Portland as “anarchist jurisdictions,” stating they have “permitted violence and destruction of property to persist,” after the president signed an executive order to limit federal funds sent to these places in the U.S. The announcement came via the Justice Department on Monday morning, saying the leadership in these three cities “have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities” for months now following the death of George Floyd, which led to an explosion in violent protests, riots, and looting. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said Monday. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” Trump’s early September memorandum stated that “it is the policy and purpose of the United States Government to protect the lives and property of all people in the United States from unlawful acts of violence and destruction” and that “without law and order, democracy cannot function.” The president said that “anarchy has recently beset some of our States and cities” and claimed that “for the past few months, several State and local governments have contributed to the violence and destruction in their jurisdictions by failing to enforce the law, disempowering and significantly defunding their police departments, and refusing to accept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.” He…

Tom Cotton Weighs In On Filling RGB Seat: Democrats Who Voted For Kavanaugh Won Reelection; Those That Didn’t, Lost

Published

on

Sen. Tom Cotton made a very good argument for why Democrats should vote in favor of filling the SCOTUS seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by pointing out that those Democrats who supported Kavanaugh got reelected, while those that voted against him didn’t. This is a great strategy. What most Democrats want more than anything is to do maintain power and stay in office so they can get paid to do nothing, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Cotton knows that, hence, bringing up this very valid point. via The Daily Wire: “In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.” “So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.” Cotton later added that people should not “discount Democratic votes either” in the upcoming hearings after President Donald Trump announces who he is nominating to the nation’s highest court. https://youtu.be/0N2I3GVO_q4 We absolutely need to make sure that a true, pro-life, conservative appointee is confirmed and placed on the Supreme Court, as…
