Joe Biden’s not doing so hot in the primaries.
And that’s not surprising, since he needs a bath.
Joe’s filthy from being dragged through the mud, courtesy of Impeachment Mania — Democrats, for some reason, decided they’d rather punch at Trump in a way that was guaranteed to fail (here) rather than hold onto a candidate who might’ve succeeded.
Hence, he’s no closer to securing a sizable win now than he was a week ago.
Rather, he’s duking it out with Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar for that most coveted of all places, fourth.
In the lead: socialist Bernie Sanders.
From The Hill:
Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) maintained his lead over his opponents for the Democratic presidential nomination in New Hampshire, according to a poll released days before the first-in-the-nation primary.
Support for Sanders increased 3 points from a January poll to 28 percent, according to a CNN poll released Sunday conducted by the University of New Hampshire.
Sanders holds a 7 point lead over his closest competitor in the poll, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
That last part’s even more interesting, given the recent revelation that teenybopper Pete won an essay contest by praising Bern’s stick-to-itiveness regarding that most beloved economic system of 1940’s Nazis everywhere (here).
It seems to me that — of those trying — Joe was a pretty good choice to face Trump in November. Yet, like a wet shirt in Amish country, the DNC hung him out to dry.
More dirt on Hunter’s coming shortly, which won’t necessarily help Joe’s Q.
And so, as noted by The Daily Wire:
[W]orst off is Biden, who, if the CBS Boston numbers hold, will have two fourth-place finishes in a row — quite the disappointment for the man who was supposed to be the nominee.
