It may be boring for the Political media…
But the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination IS For Biden’s to lose…
He leads the field by almost 2 to 1….
And his lead IS solid and continues from before he even declared.. ….
It isn’t just a bounce since he announced….
Biden actually seems to be working on a general election effort against Trump as he campaign’s in the states he and Obama won , but Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in 2016…
With the introductory stage of the Democratic presidential primary now over, the lines of engagement are beginning to take shape. And what is emerging is a primary that is no longer one nominating contest, but two.
The first, occurring wherever Joe Biden materializes, is the front-runner’s campaign against himself — his history of failed presidential elections, his propensity for gaffes, his need to adhere to new “boundaries of protecting personal space.”
The other includes everyone else.
Nowhere were the two tracks of the primary more stark than over the weekend, when Biden positioned himself in Ohio, far from the horde of other Democratic contenders. While more than half the field jostled at the Californian Democratic Party convention here — the largest single state party gathering in the nation — the former vice president had the lectern to himself at a Human Rights Campaign dinner on Saturday, contrasting his candidacy not with any Democrat, but with the Republican president.
His counter-programming appearance served the latest reminder that, with large leads in national and several early state polls, Biden is running a race in a vacuum, adhering to his own rules and schedule…
While the media keep the narrative that parties left was in ascension ….
The fact that Joe Bide, who is a moderate , owns the lead in polling across the country for the nomination race points to the media missing the boat…
This shouldn’t be a surprise…
The lefties in the party did not dislodge the Clinton march to the nomination either….
In the end?
Democrats on the whole?
Are centralist and even more?….
Pragmatic in what they want….
The liberal wing of the Democratic Party launched a sudden volley of attacks against presidential candidate Joe Biden and his allies over the weekend, showing a new urgency to wrest control of the party from moderate forces that had seized an advantage in recent months.
Some of the most scathing, if veiled, admonitions came Sunday from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who repeatedly condemned “middle ground” policy ideas and appeared to criticize Biden for not attending a Democratic gathering where Sanders and 13 other White House hopefuls spoke.
“We cannot go back to the old ways,” Sanders warned in a speech at the California Democratic Party convention here as supporters cheered and waved signs bearing his name. “We have got to go forward with a new and progressive agenda.”
On Saturday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) delivered a fierce rebuke of Biden’s professed faith that Republicans will be more cooperative once President Trump is out of office. The crowd showered her with loud cheers. Before Warren spoke, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi faced shouts from the audience in her hometown demanding that she and other Democratic leaders move to impeach Trump.
The broadsides amounted to the loudest warning yet from the party’s left flank that it intends to aggressively challenge the centrist ideas and cautious politics that have gained a foothold eight months before presidential balloting begins with the Iowa caucuses. After signs of promise earlier this year, when Sanders topped the polls and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) quickly asserted her influence on Capitol Hill, the liberal movement has stagnated….
