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.

Lindsey Graham Weighs In On Mattis Criticism of Trump, Says He’s ‘Buying Into A Narrative’

Published

on

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham weighed in on some rather brutal comments made by former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis about President Donald Trump, stating that he was “buying into a narrative” after slamming the president for his handling of the riots and protests in light of the death of George Floyd. Graham made an appearance on Fox & Friends where he said that Mattis isn’t understanding, despite the several years he spent serving in his administration, that Trump is the victim of a political blame game. “The one thing I would tell Gen. Mattis is that you don’t quite understand that from the time President Trump wakes up until he goes to bed, there’s an effort to destroy his presidency. … Nobody wants to send active-duty troops into American cities unless they are invited and unless they are absolutely necessary,” Graham said during the interview. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “But I would say that Gov. Cuomo should have called out the National Guard early on, and I would ask Gen. Mattis to look at the behavior of the politicians in these cities and see if you can find fault with them,” he said, referring to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “It is so fashionable to blame President Trump for every wrong in America, and he can be a handful, and can he do better? Yes. But the problems we have in America today weren’t caused by Donald Trump, and hopefully, he can help the nation heal some of these problems.” Mattis claimed that Trump was ordering the National Guard to “violate the constitutional rights of their fellow citizens” so that the president could have a “bizarre photo op” in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House on Monday. Trump responded to Mattis’s condemnation by tweeting,…

A Thirty-Foot Ladder Has Appeared On Border Wall In California

Published

on

New reports are indicated that individuals involved in the practice of human smuggling have created a makeshift ladder out of PVC pipes to scale the 30-foot border fence located in Calexico, California. The ladder itself appears to have been built by one or more individuals and then placed on the fence. There are 10 plastic plumbing pipes spaced out every three feet that makes it possible for a person to climb over from one side to the other. The construction on this portion of the border fence is part of President Trump’s border security agenda. The construction on it started last fall. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: An old photo of the shorter wall that was replaced with this taller one shows it is directly on the international border and separates a neighborhood in Calexico from a neighborhood in Mexicali in Baja California, Mexico. Local media cited “coyotes,” or Mexicans who help people illegally enter the United States, as the likely builders of the ladder. Mexicali’s director of firefighters, Ruben Osuna, said the department has received 10 calls to rescue people trapped on top of the wall. Police officers in the Mexican town have detained more than 65 people who have attempted to cross the fence or damage it. Customs and Border Protection has not, at the time of this writing, responded to the reports nor for comment requests. Back in January, the Border Patrol, along with the San Diego Fire Department rescued three individuals who were stuck at the top of the fence in southwestern California. Before that, in December of 2019, photographs were captured by a journalist of someone attempting to use a rope ladder to scale the fence. https://twitter.com/fotornelas/status/1202065077328924672
