Since entering the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden has managed to dominate. He is beating all his opponents in the polls, despite facing intense censure from hardcore progressives.
It appears as though Biden is looking to make the most of this momentum. Later today, the former vice president will appear in Philadelphia, Pennslyvania.
Released excerpts from his campaign have revealed Biden’s forthcoming talking points.
The Theme of Unity over Anger
In Biden’s upcoming remarks, he will take shots at his Democrat opponents. The excerpts for Biden’s speech later today reveals that he will stress the importance of unity over anger.
The aforementioned excerpts read as follows:
“Some say Democrats don’t want to hear about unity. That they are angry – and the angrier you are – the better. That’s what they are saying [you] have to do to win the Democratic nomination.”
Biden will then go on to express why this isn’t his philosophy…before getting in a dig at President Trump.
See for yourself:
“Well, I don’t believe it. I believe Democrats want to unify this nation. That’s what we’ve always been about. Unity. If the American people want a president to add to our division, to lead with a clenched fist, closed hand and a hard heart, to demonize the opponents and spew hatred – they don’t need me. The already have a president who does just that.”
The former vice president will also affirm that he is running in order to better America for “Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.”
How Would Biden Fare in a General Election
Since Biden will appear in Philadephia later today, the reaction to his forthcoming statements remains to be seen. However, the former vice president’s lead has raised questions about how Biden would fare in a general election.
In both liberal and conservative circles, Biden is largely regarded as a centrist and one of the more moderate Democrat candidates. This, in and of itself, makes Biden likelier to appeal to a wider audience of Americans than the more hardcore, progressives candidates within his party.
Earlier this month, the president of the United States predicted that he will face Biden in the 2020 general election.
