Why Donald Trump Actually Might Not Need Help Defeating Sleepy Joe?
Endorsements for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has poured in from all sides — Former President Barack Obama, co-contenders like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. But will uncle Joe make it?
Highlights! A Trump-free America narrative isn’t enough to convince the American voter
- Barack Obama Breaks the Long Silence
- Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement for Integrity
- Bernie Sanders Pledge for Trump Free America
- Biden’s Lacking Charm
Under a week since Sen. Bernie Sanders quit the race to the White House, Joe Bien has emerged as the presumptive Democratic nominee. With support from former US President Barack Obama and 2020 presidential contender Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren
Biden has acquired three hi-profile endorsements by far and looks like America’s sole hope against slumping economy and public health crisis. In a post-pandemic world, these factors would prove very significant to American voter in the coming General Elections 2020.
Between Trump and Biden, the tax-paying American voter has the choice between practical ‘America First’ and character who could ‘heal.’
Barack Obama Breaks the Silence
On Wednesday, former President Barack Obama endorsed Biden in a 12-minute-long video. It made us nostalgic to see Obama once again addressing people.
Biden has served as the Vice President of United States during Obama’s presidency. The former President is highly popular among Democrats and his endorsement will prove fruitful in cementing presumptive nominee’s candidacy.
Addressing pandemic affected America’s need for good leadership, Obama said, “This crisis has reminded us that government matters. It’s reminded us that good government matters.”
Furthermore, the former president who had reserved his comments during the primary cited Joe Biden’s experience and character essential in healing America. Remembering his leadership during the Great Recession and Ebola Crisis Obama said, “Joe has the experience to guide us through one of our darkest times and heal us through a long recovery.”
President Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign is touted as most ‘inspirational’ in modern history. He managed to assemble African Americans, white working-class voters, suburban women and crucially young people. He was the most ‘savage’ president on the internet.
Taking a dig at the Republicans without mentioning any names Obama said, “The Republicans occupying White House… are interested in power.”
Elizabeth Warren, Saving Lives and Livelihoods
One of the 2020 contenders of the presidential race Sen. Elizabeth Warren also backed Joe Biden for the President of the United States. Warren and Biden have never been on the same side of the issues. During Primary, however, Biden has supported Warren’s bankruptcy proposal.
Commending Biden’s ability to take a stand Warren explained, “When you disagree, he’ll listen — and not just listen, but really hear you, and treat you with respect no matter where you’re coming from.”
When America is staring at unemployment and financial crisis Biden’s long democratic experience is being relied upon. Warren spoke of working with Biden to set up Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Elizabeth Warren endorsed Biden on the belief that he can lead a government that works for American people. She said, Biden, knows that a government run ‘with integrity, competence, and heart will save lives and save livelihoods.” Mentioning Donald Trump can’t continue to endanger lives and livelihoods.
Bernie Sanders‘ Call for Trump Free America
On Monday, Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed Joe Biden’s presidential campaign in light of uniting people; sending his supports a clear message to support to align accordingly.
He appeared on a live stream about coronavirus and said, “I am asking all Americans, every Democrat and independent, I’m asking a lot of Republicans, to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy, which I endorse.”
Sander’s pledged his support to make Trump one-term president. He said, “We’ve got to make Trump a one-term president. I will do all that I can to make that happen.”
After Sander’s endorsement, there is a consensus among the progressives to support Biden but there’s growing skepticism too. The progressive leaders feel that Biden’s platform and political history are out of step with young Democratic coalition.
But the Problem Is…
Backed with his vast experience and by three hi-profile endorsements, 77-year-old Joe Biden still lacks his appeal with the young. His to be predecessors Trump and Obama have a showman appeal that grips the young. Bidden lacks charm.
In a post-pandemic world the young ‘woke’ American would not only look for a stable economy or Trump Free America – he’d look for a face that can appeal to his modern sensibilities.
For an average voter, the issue of healthcare is a determinant factor in his vote as much as good social media presence. Biden’s Town Hall videos fail to impress a good chunk of his expected voters.
Before the General Elections, to get it right at the state-wide-electoral college, though endorsements are in — Biden has to break out of his ‘sleepy Joe’ image as Donald Trump calls him.
Maybe Joe Biden should take a leaf from Obama’s book along with his endorsement of the presidential campaign!
