Biden’s Support Among Dem Voters Slumps After Poor Performance During 2020 Democratic Debate

After taking a fumble during his first 2020 Democratic presidential debate, former Vice President Joe Biden’s is seeing a decline in support among Democratic voters.

Biden — who caught a lot of attention even prior to his official announcement that he was running for president — has led the pack of Democratic hopefuls ahead of the 2020 presidential election thus far.

However, as a Morning Consult/FiveThirtyEight poll revealed on Friday, Democratic voters said they find Biden “somewhat favorable” after Thursday night’s debate. He had 76.5 percent favorability among Democratic voters prior to his debate, decreasing to 75.6 percent afterward.

Before the debates when voters were asked would they would vote for if the election were to happen tomorrow, Biden received 41.5 percent of the support. However, his numbers took a dive following his debate performance, as 31.5 percent of Democratic voters polled expressed their support for the candidate.

Additionally, the poll shows that Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro caught fire as the winners of the debate, gaining favorability with their performance.

During Thursday’s debate, Biden faltered when asked questions about his record under the Obama administration, as well as his past comments on working with segregationist senators, as IJR Red previously reported.

While Biden was declared a “loser” after the second night’s debate by Real Clear Politics and a report by New York Magazine Washington correspondent Olivia Nuzzi claimed Biden’s 2020 campaign team was “freaking out” after the debate, his campaign tried downplaying that report, as IJR Red also noted.

“A source close to the Biden campaign tells me his staff is ‘freaking out’ about his poor performance tonight,” Nuzzi tweeted, as Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield responded, “Nope.”

Don’t think I’m crazy folks but who could possibly swoop in to save the Dems? Gee, the one and only Hillary? Here she comes to save the day…throw in Kamala Harris as VP? Hits all their PC points; women, ethnicity, LGBTQ, Progressive, liberal, both swamp dwellers. Don’t count this out, mark my words. The Dems are crazy enough to put this witches brew together.

Biden is a doofus and a hump. His ‘best’ days are long gone and he should retire into obscurity.
Where’s rich-ass Al Gore?

I love Joe Biden! I give my vote to him!
I think he is the only one that can beat Trump! He also does not want Medicare for all! That would raise our taxes! Biden is right that we need to build on the ACA!

Looks like “slumping” is becoming a common factor among running democrates! By the time Trump goes after them…they might feel they’re in a sinking hole!
