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.”

Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have given their lives in the military so that we can be free. It certainly is not a day for politics. But “crooked” Hillary Clinton just couldn’t help herself. From Daily Wire: On Monday morning, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided to celebrate Memorial Day, which honors the veterans who have fought for America, with a tweet that didn’t acknowledge their sacrifice but instead trumpeted her approval of New York governor Andrew Cuomo for his “responsible decisions to keep people safe.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1264912356834004992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264912356834004992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fhillary-celebrates-memorial-day-by-lauding-cuomos-responsible-decisions-ignores-military Here’s President Trump’s address from Arlington National Cemetery… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1264964171457757184?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264964171457757184&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-praises-veterans-projects-optimism-in-memorial-day-public-address From AP News: NEW YORK (AP) — More than 4,500 recovering coronavirus patients were sent to New York’s already vulnerable nursing homes under a controversial state directive that was ultimately scrapped amid criticisms it was accelerating the nation’s deadliest outbreaks, according to a count by The Associated Press. AP compiled its own tally to find out how many COVID-19 patients were discharged from hospitals to nursing homes under the March 25 directive after New York’s Health Department declined to release its internal survey conducted two weeks ago. It says it is still verifying data that was incomplete. CONTINUED: Whatever the full number, nursing home administrators, residents’ advocates and relatives say it has added up to a big and indefensible problem for facilities that even Gov. Andrew Cuomo — the main proponent of the policy — called “the optimum feeding ground for this virus.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNflR2Ia7Hc WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=189&v=APHIYCsHqV0&feature=emb_logo https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1251181566740619265?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1251181566740619265&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fnothing-sitting-home-watching-tv-governor-cuomo-attacks-president-trump-rips-cdcs-bogus-predictions-video%2F

Dem Governor’s Husband Demanded Special Treatment After Whitmer Told People to Stay Away From Lake

Facepalm!

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) seems to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons, as of late. Therefore, it only makes sense that Joe Biden’s team is considering her for VP. Check out what Whitmer’s husband was recently caught doing, via Detroit News: The owner of a Northern Michigan dock company says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband wanted his boat placed in the water before the Memorial Day weekend as Whitmer urged residents not to rush to the region. No longer visible to the public, Facebook posts from NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts have drawn the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the Democratic governor’s family may not be following her guidance for the rest of the state. LOOK: https://twitter.com/RyanMaue/status/1265082748886228994?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1265082748886228994&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwhitmers-husband-asked-for-special-treatment-in-getting-boat-on-water-after-she-urged-people-to-not-go-to-area-report-says More from TDW: NorthShore Dock LLC later wrote a post about the incident, saying: “We simply let him know— Sorry, we have a lot going on with very little time to get it done. We will get you in line to install as soon as we can, ALL our customers are valued and we cannot place you in front of others who scheduled earlier.” […] Whitmer also faced intense backlash after her administration awarded taxpayer-funded coronavirus stimulus funds to Democrat groups, a move that she later canceled. Later, when pressed about the issue at a press conference, Whitmer had to read from notes as she refused to identify who made the decision to award the contracts to those groups.
