New Report Says Cracks Are Beginning To Form In Joe Biden’s South Carolina Stronghold

Published

One of the biggest strongholds that former Vice President has been able to count on for votes in the upcoming Democratic presidential primary is South Carolina, however, it seems that there might be some signs popping up that indicate not all is well with his support there.

Biden’s support in states like Iowa and New Hampshire has also slipped a bit, leaving him behind Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in the polls, which means potentially losing South Carolina could be a serious blow to his campaign efforts.

Here are more details from The Washington Examiner:

An October Post and Courier-Change Research poll found Biden’s support among likely Democratic primary voters in the state slipped to 30% from 36% in August, while Warren’s increased from 17% in August to 19%, and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg increased from 5% to 9%. Biden’s 11-point lead over Warren in the poll is down from a 31-point lead in May.

Biden’s team has tempered expectations for winning the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, the first two nominating contests in the country, instead turning attention to South Carolina, the fourth state to vote, and to picking up delegates in Super Tuesday states.

The former vice president retains strength in South Carolina in part because of his support among black voters, which make up a majority of Democratic primary voters in the state. Biden led California Sen. Kamala Harris, who is of Jamaican and Indian descent, by 21 points in the Post and Courier October poll.

South Carolina resident and Department of Veteran’s Affairs employee Price Crosby, 38, gave her thoughts as to why Biden was losing support during an event for Elizabeth Warren.

“I think [Biden’s] a little bit too cautious, is a little bit too afraid to make the stand he is going to need to bring voters out,” Crosby said.

One of Biden’s campaign aides recently stated that the former vice president will be focusing on his efforts on picking up DNC delegates in Super Tuesday states instead of winning New Hampshire and Iowa.

However, Biden himself has said he has no plans to change up his style due to falling behind Warren.

“She doesn’t affect my strategy, period,” Biden said, speaking to the Associated Press on Saturday. “And I’m not being facetious. I think she’s a fine person, a good candidate, but I didn’t get involved in deciding to run because of polling or a particular strategy.”

Biden Says Politics Is Going ‘To Come Back And Whack’ President Trump

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden recently decided to take a swipe at President Donald Trump, claiming that politics would “whack” the commander-in-chief, leading many to wonder what exactly is meant by that particular comment. Biden, 76, made the comment during a town hall special broadcast on CNN, in which he attempted to explain how modern day politics had gotten so out of control under Sen. Mitch McConnell and Trump. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Politics today has gotten so mean and ugly and dirty and everybody questioning motive and not focusing at all on trying to put things together instead of disagreeing on substance, you go to motive,” said Biden. “It has become so, so difficult for Republicans to be able to, unless they have real courage, to stand up and take on the president even if they think he should be taken on.” He went on to tie in McConnell and referenced his decision to block a vote to confirm Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Biden claimed he suggested Garland to President Barack Obama because he thought Republicans would vote to confirm him. “They know what they were doing was wrong,” Biden said. He added, “The politics has gotten just so out of whack, but it’s going to come back and whack — heh — this guy.” https://youtu.be/vwzsbIrVn88 Some individuals were upset by the comment, claiming it was a joke about “whacking” — killing — the president. Others mocked Biden for the lame comment. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1194080088582754304 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1194084597270749184 Biden is the current frontrunner in the Democratic Party presidential primary, though it’s been a fight and struggle for him to maintain that top spot in a crowded field that includes Sen. Elizabeth Warren and many others.

Social media companies are starting to crack down on any mentions of the “whistleblower” whose complaint about President Trump’s phone conversation with Ukrainian leadership is responsible for the current impeachment inquiry, according to a brand new report. While the alleged name of the whistleblower has been making the rounds online in alternative media websites, social media giants like Facebook and YouTube are calling the publishing of the individual’s name a violation of their “coordinating harm policy.” Here’s more from Fox News: On Saturday, Twitter was the only major social network to resist the change, with users still free to publish the name of the alleged whistleblower. Tweets from big-name conservative Twitter users like Candace Owens and Donald Trump, Jr. revealing the name have gone viral in recent days. “Per our private information policy, any tweets that include personally identifiable information about any individual, including the alleged whistleblower, would be in violation of the Twitter Rules,” The Post reported.
