And the damage isn’t over yet.
Now, the former Vice President was left in the dust by his own campaign for one shocking reason you won’t believe.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is quickly turning into the biggest bust in politics today.
He was supposed to be the obvious successor to Barack Obama, who he served under as Vice President, to take on Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
And while he maintains a lead in the Democratic primary polls, that edge has almost completely evaporated since he jumped into the race earlier this year.
For Biden, all the signs keep pointing south.
But the problems aren’t over yet for Biden.
In fact, they’re just beginning.
And that’s because the former Vice President keeps being his own worst enemy on the campaign trail with a series of gaffes that could end up costing him the Democratic nomination or the White House if he happens to go up against Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.
The Hill reports, “Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president’s schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days. The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.”
For Biden, this is horrendous news.
It shows that even his own team has little confidence that he won’t continue to screw up on the campaign trail.
And they have every reason to want to push this new policy as well.
“Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time as the campaign intensifies in the fall,” adds The Hill.
If Biden is taken away from the campaign trail, it could end up hurting his electoral chances in more ways than one.
Not only would voters see less of him, meaning he would have fewer chances to win them over, but his own rivals in the Democratic field would inevitably attack him for it.
No matter what Biden’s campaign thinks, they can’t hope to win the election by hiding him from voters all the way to November 2020.
The former Vice President will have to get out there, risk making more gaffes, and continue to speak with voters if he hopes to win the nomination and then the general election against Donald Trump.
And if he doesn’t do that, it could mark the beginning of the end for his campaign.
Do you think that Biden shouldn’t run away from meeting voters if he hopes to become the President?
