Here we go again... the end of the Biden candidacy... has anyone kept count?

From the day Joe announced, within a 2 week period, it started.. "is this the end of the Biden candidacy?".. and there was a run to the Primary thread, with repeated and repeated references to "this is it for Biden"

The media went all in on Beto first.. then Bernie.. then Kamala.. I think Corey was in for a week or so.. then Elizabeth.. then Pete.. now Mike (another billionaire.. ayyy yii yii).. and Joe just kept coming back as the polls show.

Like the turtle and the hare(s), Joe will win this race. I have never doubted it for a second.

But as an Iowan, can I just add.. Please dear God no more people jumping in this race already.. if you do not like the top 4 or 5, there are other people in the next tier who have put in the time, sweat , blood and tears and deserve the second look..

If Mike B, got the nomination, it would look like we were completely bought out, just like the Trumpian party. I do not think for a second Mike B wants that either. I understand that it looks like such a great time to run because there is such a buffoon on the other side.. but honestly we have been at this long enough with the 20 plus people who have been in the fray.. some have left already.. but if you have not got a candidate yet.. take a closer look at the people who have been working their butts off already..

Just my unasked for thoughts on the subject

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

2. Biden's standing in the polls is almost exactly where it was the day he announced....

 

....except that he increased his lead by about a point.

4. In other words he is having difficult in appealing to those who don't know him.

 

As nominee he will have no such difficulty - this is an usual election for Dems - above all they will be voting against the Republican.

5. All the finger on the scale behavior of pollsters is an attempt to make Warren into the front

 

runner. It hasn't happened because she is not nor will be the front runner. Six polls ...five show Biden leading....folks say they want a moderate candidate...and the one poll (WI) showing Warren leading within the MOE...is released first to giver her a full day as 'winning the mid west' which she will not do either in a primary nor more importantly in a general. She has my vote of course in the general but I believe as I have stated before she win the national vote and loses the EC. I am heartened thought that despite the best efforts of Warren supporting media and pollsters...Joe remains in first place. I believe he will be the nominee and by then will be fire tested...a nominee in armor.

6. Creative, though thoroughly unsupported interpretation.

 

(hey... I get it. Sometimes we tell ourselves what we have to, objective analysis be damned)

3. Sounds sort of like those old "Apple out of business by Christmas" stories.

 

No one ever said which Christmas, but still ... whatever happened to those ?

8. I keep hearing about Biden's eminent demise but he just keeps on

 

leading the pack. The pundits are pissed that nobody cares what they think.
