I really wish there were younger candidates but the reality is as long as the stock market doesn't crash, Trump will be reelected so Joe Biden is just going to experience massive frustration. The democrats will probably get the Presidency back in 2024.

-7 ( +4 / -11 )

Well, that seems to be it. Biden appears to be locked in now, and I think that means a second Trump presidency. I'll vote for Biden in the general and I'd love to be surprised, but I think Trump will beat him.

5 ( +11 / -6 )

He swore in the face of a taxpaying citizen, the person he's supposed to serve.

What kind of a politician openly uses profanities and derogatory comments in public.

He's not fit to be president.

-12 ( +12 / -24 )

Good news for Trump supporters. Biden doesn't stand a chance in November.

-6 ( +11 / -17 )

The establishment rallied round and the voters took a closer look at BS and decided he is a bit too adventurous.

Can't wait to see the debates between Big Orange and Crazy Joe.  Maybe CJ will challenge him to a push up contest again.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

I didn't vote for Biden in my state's primary. I don't agree with some of his viewpoints, however if he ends up becoming the Democratic Party nominee, I will certainly vote for him. Sitting out this year's presidential election is simply not an option.

Oh, Burning Bush, you are talking about Trump? I do remember his followers "explaining away" some profanities a few weeks ago, and that "grab them by the pussy" thing is a real knee-slapper too.

14 ( +17 / -3 )

G.O.D. help us all! Hey Biden, you can never go back only forward. You are clearly the wrong candidate!

-11 ( +3 / -14 )

For those convinced Trump will win the election, the bookies have Trump a shade under even money.

How convinced are you?

5 ( +9 / -4 )

All three are too old. Trump-Sanders-Biden.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Biden is coming apart, couldn’t believe he cursed out a supporter. Guy is becoming more and more of a Democrat liability for the entire party.

-12 ( +7 / -19 )

Oh, Burning Bush, you are talking about Trump?

Trump has never sworn at a citizen who wanted to talk about their constitutional rights.

Biden doesn't want to hear anybody talk about freedom or rights.

If he's swearing now, what's it going to be like when he's President.

He's cracking up.

-13 ( +3 / -16 )

Although Biden hasn't been my first choice among Democratic candidates, I'm glad he's beating Bernie. Biden has a much better chance at beating Trump than Bernie does.

Hate to say it, but this election is going to be a referendum on Trump, and I'll support anybody who will get Trump out of office. He's a menace to the country and to the world.

So, go Biden!

couldn’t believe he cursed out a supporter. 

Can't believe a Trump supporter is squeamish about foul language.

7 ( +13 / -6 )

Noticed this article conveniently failed to mention the Alzheimer's-like meltdown Biden had with a voter; swearing at him, threatening him with violence and telling him, "I don't work for you".

Lunch box Joe: The people's candidate.

-5 ( +11 / -16 )

Biden has a much better chance at beating Trump than Bernie does.

Better, but slim.

Hate to say it, but this election is going to be a referendum on Trump

What?

and I'll support anybody who will get Trump out of office.

Probsbly not this cycle, but if Democrats continue on this crazy trajectory of self mutilation, they might not even make it I’m 2024

He's a menace to the country and to the world.

Biden is more of menace to the Democrats and to himself

So, go Biden!

I agree, go Biden!

Can't believe a Trump supporter is squeamish about foul language.

The difference is Trump attacks the media justifiably in my opinion and occasionally uses foul language towards them, Trump does not go to an individual voter and curses them out.

-15 ( +1 / -16 )

I would waste a vote on Bernie to focus on healthcare.

1 ( +5 / -4 )

Trump does not go to an individual voter and curses them out.

No, Trump called Mexicans rapists, although some are good people, when he ran for president.

I think Biden swearing at someone isn’t at that level.

5 ( +10 / -5 )

@The democrats will probably get the Presidency back in 2024.

Not as long as I'm living the US just simply can't afford it anymore. Not that I'm just as glad for the Republicans, but let's face it, historically the US has done much better world wide where it counts the most. If the US was to pull out of the world, which is impossible but if, then a Democratic party would be the best bet to roll. Truth be told, they are both corrupted and dirty, but hey the one's who don't vote or cast blind votes are to blame. To many liars, err sorry lawyers in politics is bad. Lawyers should be kept in document reading, crossing the t' and dotting the i's not making or deciding policy.

-4 ( +4 / -8 )

If Biden is the best they can come up with after 3 years then they may as well wave the white flag now...

-4 ( +6 / -10 )

With Donny making a mess of the Coronavirus crisis and looking like a bigger fool every day, anyone can beat him.

Looks like it might be Biden, but not giving up on Bernie yet.

2 ( +7 / -5 )

zichi:

All three are too old. Trump-Sanders-Biden.

Trump is the youngest of the bunch, and he is running for only one term. Can you imagine either Sanders or Biden 8 years from now?

-8 ( +1 / -9 )

-- this election is going to be a referendum on Trump

What?

Sorry, I forgot that you might not understand what 'referendum' means.

Biden is more of menace to the Democrats and to himself

OK, then. You agree that Trump is a menace to the planet but that Biden is a menace to himself and his party. I'll take the latter. How about you?

I hope JT isn't spending too much money on its one-trick pony.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Biden will defeat Trump, both in the EC and the popular vote.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

He swore in the face of a taxpaying citizen, the person he's supposed to serve.

You don't like swearing?

Neither do I.

What's your stance on a political candidate who encourages supporters at a rally to 'knock the crap out of' protesters? And promising to pay their legal fees when they get arrested for assault?

Personally I find that a whole lot worse than one-on-one verbal sparring.

What kind of politician openly incites violence and physical assault?

He's not fit to be president.

No, Trump’s words were taken out of context, let’s look at the entire quote.

*"When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best," Trump said. "They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."*

Growing up half of my life in LA, it’s not that far fetched and we are not talking about the Mexican-Americans that have lived in the States for 2-3 generation that are law-abiding, hard working and deep moral and religious ethics. Look at the crime stats in Mexico, it’s off the charts. I know liberals want to bury their head in the sand, for them the only thing they want or need are votes and that’s all.

But as far as Trump addressing a voter to their face, he’s never done that. Now I see what they make sure Biden’s rallies are kept under 20 minutes, explains a lot.

.

-11 ( +3 / -14 )

Biden will defeat

In a Jerry Bruckheimer movie, I’m sure.

Trump, both in the EC and the popular vote.

ROFL! Impossible

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

Profanity is not the real issue. But presidential candidate Biden telling a potential voter, "I don't work for you" is a much, much bigger concern.

-6 ( +4 / -10 )

as far as Trump addressing a voter to their face, he’s never done that.

Because he's a coward. He only attacks people on Twitter or if he's in front of an adoring MAGA mob at a rally.

It’s o.k., because you’re going to get four more years of Trump, so don’t sweat it.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

@bas4ffor them the only thing they want or need are votes and that’s all.

Are the D's altering videos to help get those votes? Shaking down nation's to do so? Flat out lying? I was under the impression some Trump supporters said all's fair come election time.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

The GOP doesn't get how mad everyone, including many Republicans, are about Trump.

Biden was the only candidate who could beat Trump and he. Sanders was going to beat Trump, regardless of what the NE and West coasties believed. The rest of the country doesn't want a democratic-socialist.

Dems need to get some 50-something people into key positions and start working their succession plans so we aren't stuck choosing another old white guy over 60 as President after 1-term Joe is done.

"'... Joe Biden is going to be the Democratic nominee,' Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil said on Twitter..."

Joe Biden is going to be the loser to Trump in the election in November.

There. Fixed it.

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

Do you think Biden will tell his followers to check out a non-existent sex tape featuring the man he swore at to really get at him? Maybe track down a photo of his wife and post it on Twitter?

You know, telling it like it is and not taking any crap. Isn’t that what presidential candidates do?

5 ( +5 / -0 )

I don't know why the media keep putting the adjective "democratic" in front of the noun "socialist" when referring to Senator Sanders. A socialist is a socialist, which is only one step away from being a communist, which Senator Sanders pretty much is, if you look at his collective works.

Not that former Vice President Biden is much better with all the corruption that lays in his wake.

I desperately want someone other than President Trump to become president, but the Democratic Party has offered no one that can garner the support needed to do so.

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

Correction:

Sanders was going to beat Trump

should be

Sanders was never going to beat Trump

Ptownsend:

Err... yes to all of the above. Interesting you bring that topic up.

And, what concerns me even more: Have the D's been ilegally been warmongering and destryoing countries? Yes, they have. And the only D candidate who addresses that gets the Trump treatment. Go figure!

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

@willibHave the D's been ilegally been warmongering and destryoing countries?

If I understand the point I think you might be suggesting your media sources have been reporting Republican Bush had no connection to the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions. And that right now Republican Trump has no connections to the US military being in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and other places around the globe.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Sanders is the only candidate who has the energy and intelligence to know what needs to be done to help working-class Americans, women and minorities push back against the toxic contagion of right-wing ideology that has too long led and misguided them down the perverse path to self-harm at the ballot-box. Apart from his terrible past record representing the interests of the privileged and the military-industrial complex, grandpa Biden is mentally coming apart at the seams before our very eyes and, if he becomes the anointed one, Trump can only lose if he defeats himself before November, or if the election, as others have mentioned, turns out to be a referendum on the 4 years of living derangedly while Trump golfed.

1 ( +5 / -4 )

Biden is literally disintegrating, at this stage he is a walking corpse, it is clear he is suffering from cognitive degeneration. The Democrats are just handing re-election to Trump on silver platter.

0 ( +5 / -5 )

Because he's a coward.

He should be. Why on Earth would you want to attack a voter, I wouldn’t, I’m too chicken to do that. Biden on the other hand has NO excuse, because she’s in a rapid mental decline, he just can’t help himself, half of the time he doesn’t know where he’s at and blurts incoherent things every single time. I do agree Trump says think sometimes that I cringe worthy sometimes after Mark, but he says things because he believes them and he says them on purpose, buying is not doing that, buying is just saying stuff because he’s just not all there anymore.

He only attacks people on Twitter or if he's in front of an adoring MAGA mob at a rally.

And?

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

Are the D's altering videos to help get those votes?

He doesn’t have to alter anything, just sit at a Biden rally for two minutes, that would get you up and out of your seat and run for the exit door

Shaking down nation's to do so? Flat out lying?

What?

I was under the impression some Trump supporters said all's fair come election time. 

LOL

I felt the same after leaving seeing the liberals take over.

Only the other day Trump supporters said the president can say anything he likes, rue or false, all are good. I guess they don't care about playing a double game.

He doesn’t have to alter anything,

True. He can just retweet doctored videos going round the net. The White House retweeted a doctored video from infowars in the past. It’s easier and quicker than doing it yourself.

Not doctored, but watching the video and seeing how Biden stumbles like that would make me hold my vote for a guy like that.

Not quite as big a concern as immigrants trying to interject themselves into US politics instead of going back to their countries of origin and making them better places, don’t you think, Tex?

Beating 17 Republicans and established ones at that and then beating in established former first lady, I would beg to differ.

Trump crush the entire Republican establishment party and Hillary by himself and then the Republicans said they’re going to keep trump in line, no they did not and no they could not.

The right wing might lack in thinking ability, but violence is like second nature to them

Lacking?? Democrats never heard of a thing which is called tax cuts, never would’ve thought about corporate tax cut rates, never thought about injecting the private sector and supporting small businesses and deregulations. If Democrats start like that, they would win single-handedly and silently general elections all the time.

this is great news: now Bidens mental condition will further deteriorate as we get closer to the debates and make it easier for Trump to dominate.

Beating 17 Republicans and established ones at that and then beating in established former first lady, I would beg to differ.

That says more about the people who voted for him and the type of agenda he espoused !! Nothing to do with courage.

Republicans said they’re going to keep trump in line, no they did not and no they could not.

The fact that someone like Trump, a corrupt businessman and someone devoid of morals can still win support in that party, says more about that party.

 Democrats never heard of a thing which is called tax cuts, never would’ve thought about corporate tax cut rates, never thought about injecting the private sector and supporting small businesses and deregulations. 

ROFL, Democrats have been lobbying for tax cuts for a long time, just takes a bit of reading and intelligence to realize that.

The Dem/Media establishment/swamp dwellers have derailed Bernie Sanders again, in favor of an increasingly incompetent looking Joe Biden. They don't care about Biden's fast fading mental health and cognitive abilities as long as they can prop him up long enough to help them grab power.

Dems are about to choose a soon to be octogenarian with fast fading mental capacities in a desperate attempt to grab power and implement their policies of economic mishandling, border chaos, misandry against men, racism against whites, exclusionary identity politics, social re-engineering, baby slaughter up to 40 weeks, etc.

I cannot see the U.S. electorate supporting this in 2020 over President Trump's spectacular economic success and common sense approach to social issues.
