After the Democrat clown-car fiasco in Iowa, their flying circus landed in New Hampshire. Joe Biden, no longer the ringmaster because his performance has not matched his national polling, may very well take another hit. If he doesn’t at least finish third, he’ll have to fall back on his strategy of winning in South Carolina and Nevada and pray for a surge on Super Tuesday, March 3rd.
Joe Biden and his handlers have a good reason to set low expectations in New Hampshire. After all, he’s campaigning in Bernie Sanders’ and Elizabeth Warren’s backyard. Voters are very familiar with them in New Hampshire.
There’s no question that if Biden tanks another primary he’ll start to bleed donors and take another hit in the polls. Democrats may just end up realizing what most normal people know: Joe Biden is unelectable. He can’t even get an endorsement from his former two-term boss, Barack Obama.
To compound his problems, Joe once again displayed his thin skin over the weekend. Apparently smarting after his drubbing in Iowa, Joe’s bizarre response to one New Hampshire voter probably caused his handlers to sweat bullets. Two months after calling an Iowa farmer a “damn liar” and suggesting that a climate activist “go vote for someone else,” he did it again.
The college student asked Biden how he expected to remain competitive in a race after being dumped in Iowa. His answer was astonishingly offensive:
“It’s a good question. Number one: Iowa’s a democratic caucus. You ever been to a caucus? No, you haven’t. You’re a lying, dog-faced pony soldier. You said you were; but now you got to be honest. I’m gonna be honest with you. It was a little bit confusing in Iowa.”
The confusing, or probably alarming, part to the Democrat establishment, is how that exchange illustrates how poorly Joe would do against President Trump on the campaign trail. Joe can get easily flustered when he loses and resorts to calling women “lying, dog-faced pony soldiers.”
All Trump would have to do to win against Biden in the national election would be to run a video of Nancy Pelosi’s ripping up the President’s SOTU speech along with the video of Joe Biden bragging about how he blackmailed the Ukraine government into calling off the investigation of Hunter.
Yes, Joe and his mainstream news cheerleaders know how bad it looks. They stutter and stumble and offer vague assertions that there was “nothing proved.” Joe’s problem is that the proof is self-evident. It’s his description of the events and his admission that he did exactly what the House Democrats couldn’t convict President Trump on.
Biden‘s second problem is that President Trump will certainly point all that out. Will Joe get all macho and challenge the President to a fist fight or a pushup contest? Or will the President just laugh and tell Joe to go pound sand, he has a country to run.
While the New Hampshire primary won’t necessarily signal the end for Creepy, Sleep Old Joe if he comes in fourth or fifth it certainly will show that his polls numbers are lying. No one is voting for him and he’s being propped up by the establishment media.
The real story tomorrow will not be who wins the New Hampshire primary (I predict it will be Bernie Sanders, Buttigieg was a fluke that won’t happen again), but how low voter turnout is for Democrats. It will be significantly down from the 2016 primaries.
The real winner tomorrow, if that happens, will be Donald Trump.
