Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign teetered on the brink of collapse.
The Ukraine scandal exposed his corrupt dealings abroad and sagging poll numbers threatened to knock him out of his frontrunner status.
And now all hell broke loose when Joe Biden admitted this one fact.
The former Vice President entered the race in April and shot right to the top of the polls.
Biden’s top spot in the polls was built on name recognition and perceived “electability.”
But Biden’s campaign began spiraling downward over the summer.
The former Vice President turned in a series of meandering debate performances.
Biden also routinely forgot names, dates, people and places, raising serious questions about the former Vice President’s mental faculties and if he was suffering from worse than just simple old age.
While Biden’s campaign slowly began to sink, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren surged.
Warren drew large and enthusiastic crowds on stump, issued an endless supply of socialist and anti-American policy proposals and began to make inroads with the other factions in the party behind college-educated white liberals.
As the campaign entered the fall kickoff where voters really start to tune in, a series of early state polls showed Warren leading Biden in New Hampshire and Iowa – the traditional first states to hold Presidential nominating contests.
National polls showing Warren overtaking the former Vice President soon followed.
The final crack in Biden’s campaign was the third quarter fundraising numbers.
Biden reported a desultory $15 million whereas Warren far outpaced Biden, raking in $24.6 million.
The former Vice President’s middling fundraising total put him fourth in the third quarter money race behind not only Warren but also Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Biden’s meager fundraising total comes at a time when the former Vice President is facing fire on all sides.
Not only are his Democrat rivals making the case Biden’s time has come and gone, but the Trump campaign is beginning to unleash its massive campaign war chest to bury Biden in negative advertising.
The Trump campaign is dumping $10 million in negative ads on Biden’s head with one million funding anti-Biden TV commercials in the four key early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.
Trump’s record setting $125 million third quarter fundraising total – nearly double what Barack Obama brought in at a similar point in his 2012 re-election campaign – posed another hurdle for Biden.
The most important quality in a candidate for Democrats is the ability to take on and defeat Donald Trump.
Democrats could look at Trump raising record-setting piles of campaign cash whereas Biden struggled to outraise Andrew Yang and continue their flight to Warren.
Before the campaign started, Barack Obama reportedly warned Biden that he did not have to enter the race.
It appears Obama knew far more about Biden’s weakness than he let on.
