Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is mulling a White House bid, leads declared and potential Democratic presidential candidates in support among millennial voters, according to a new poll of adults between the ages of 18 and 34. The poll, organized by the University of Chicago's GenForward Survey Project, found that 21 percent of millennials back Biden over Democrats who have entered the crowded primary field, including Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren. Sanders, whose insurgent 2016 campaign was fueled by ardent support among young progressive voters, is a close second at 18 percent.

Probably has something to do with experience. Voters are seeing the fruits of an election where an inexperienced, rudderless, amoral dotard was placed at the helm of the ship of state. Tired of watching folks jump from the promenade deck of the SS Trump? Just wait a year, when those who can will be bailing to become 'political commentators' on local TV stations, talk radio and Highlights Magazine...

They also have a track record that is an indicator of how they will govern.

I think all America should take a lesson at electing a mentally ill corrupt grifter businessman who never had to answer to anyone but his own craven immorality.

Biden will crush Trump in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania - the three states that enabled Trump to eek out an EC victory with only a total 60k margin - if he's the eventual Dem nominee. Trump is deeply underwater in all three of those states.

Biden's always been an advocate for blue collar workers, and they'll respond in kind for him should he be the eventual Dem nominee. Regardless of what Trump supporters think.

AU,

Of all of the names being bandied about Biden has the best chance of beating Trump IMO. I voted Johnson in ‘16. If Biden is the nominee I'd seriously consider voting for him.

Biden will lose ....

He will lose because he is old white, and has $2.7Million dollar vacation home.

MiddleClass Joe ... Pleeeeeeze.....

Biden's always been an advocate for blue collar workers,

DACA isn't advocating for BlueCollar workers, the DNC let that ship sail under Reagan, since then Dems were just pandering a fantasy.....

Democrats, your dream of expanding health care security is incompatible with opening the door wide to the world's poor. Canada immediately enrolls immigrants in its national health care system, another reason for enforcement.

We should want some of the impoverished strivers, but we must also rebalance the entry requirements to, like Canada, favor entrants with needed skills. The hope of restoring blue-collar America is futile if we flood the labor market with low-skilled competitors.

Two paragraphs that state the Democrats logical fallacies so clearly .. it will be ignored.

He certainly cares more about average Americans than Trump ever could.

It blows me away that whether or not to abrogate 4 more years of this dumpster fire would merit "serious consideration."

Screw you, Alex.

In '08 I was adamant that the Democratic ticket was upside down.

I always voted for Carl Levin, BTW.

I like old-school moderate Dems who place the working class above toxic identity politics.

But, by all means, keep nibbling my ankle. It's what you are good at.

You're not voting for obamas vice president and we both know it.

#12 just like I never voted for Carl Levin, right Alex?

You spent 8 years with Obama's sack in your mouth. It's time to move forward.

Party line voters can never conceive of someone voting for anyone outside their party...which is pathetic when you really think about it.

I complained about Obama quite a bit.

I also got racist emails about him from former friends of the right sude. you know, the emails you claim to have never seen, jeff.

Because you are a liar.

Alex,

Serious question: how long do you want to continue this juvenile feud?

I much prefer to deal with you on adult terms...

Trump never said he was middle class.

Do you read the whole post or just get so excited you have something to say, and ignore the rest of it?

Beta may get close if the Dems narrow it down quickly. But you ain't gonna stop the TRUMP TRAIN !

WOOT! WOOT!

It blows me away the Dems could entertain the idea of running someone like Bernie Sanders. Maybe they want trump to win.

Better the dumpster fire I know than the dumpster fire I don't...especially when you consider how similar Bernie and Trump are and the type of people they appeal to.

I'm surprised by this:

Polls show Bernie Sanders popularity among all voters is plummeting

The article does a good job of putting Bernie's declining favorability in context:

The good news for Sanders is that his net favorability rating is at about the same level as the other people who have declared their candidacy for the Democratic nomination. Most of these other candidates, however, are relatively unknown. At least at this point, it's not the case that Sanders is less electable than the average Democrat. It's just that he cannot make the case that he is more electable based on national polling.

Sanders, though, may have to convince Democratic voters that he electable. In our poll, just 30% of Democratic voters believe the party has a better chance of winning the presidency with him than someone else as the nominee. The vast majority, 59%, think they have a better shot of winning with someone else.

That may change, though, when Biden gets into the race. The big unknown is whether Biden, whose ratings are currently sky high, is also going to come crashing down to Earth if and when he declares. It's probably not a bad bet given past history and what has happened to Sanders. Then Democrats will have a much tougher time figuring out who is the most electable.

"Then Democrats will have a much tougher time figuring out who is the most electable."

There are some decent candidates out there on the Dem side. While I don't agree with much of what Delany's positions, he is able to explain his positions and how he intended to address them specifically and realistically. Andrew Yang is so far the smartest candidate running, but I don't know that being smart is an asset when many of the voters you're trying to appeal to already consider themselves the smartest people in the room.
