After Democrats’ epic defeat in last year’s election, they are scrambling to find viable 2020 candidates. According to new reports from CNN, former Vice President Joe Biden might be the next Democrat to take on President Trump.
Biden 2020 vs. Trump 2020?
Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden, was recently asked about the possibility of her father running for office in 2020.
Her response is as follows:
“I hope so. Right now, his focus is on the (Biden) Foundation and Cancer Moonshot, as well as getting other Democrats elected. He’s not there. He’s taking it day by day after the loss of my dear beloved brother (Beau). He’ll make a decision when that time comes. A lot can happen in four years and we know this as a family. If he is in good health, knock on wood, and seeing what the landscape is at the time, yeah, I think he is considering it.”
Foundation Matters More Than The Candidate
In the case of the Democrats, the foundation of their campaign matters much more than the candidate. Whether Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, or Michelle Obama runs is not nearly as important as HOW they run their campaign.
As long as Democrats prioritize identity politics over patriotism and feelings over common sense, they will continue to lose elections. Also, if the Democrats are serious about putting forth a valiant effort in 2020, they need to start denouncing radicalism. This means not turning a blind eye to AntiFa and calling them out for committing violent crimes against Americans. Not labeling conservatives, Republicans, and Trump supporters as irredeemable and racist will be very impactful as well.
The election of President Trump truly exposed the ugliness within the Democrat Party. Biden can run for office if he so chooses, but he will have to resonate with Americans that aren’t Democrats. This is something that liberals have struggled with for quite some time. Bashing Trump supporters is not going to help them win any elections. Hillary Clinton tried this and ultimately failed.
Only Time Will Tell
As stated by Ashley Biden, only time will tell whether or not her father runs for office. If Biden does decide to give it a go, he will undoubtedly have the support of many Democrats. Many liberals who weren’t too keen on Clinton wanted Biden to run for the White House. They just might get their wish in 2020.
However, President Trump will also be running for re-election in 2020. Biden vs. Trump will be interesting but, as demonstrated in 2016, Trump has an innate gift for winning. The likelihood of Biden actually beating Trump in a general election is monumentally unlikely.
