“Joe-mentum” Continues, As Biden Believes that he is “Nearly Impossible to Beat”
After a landslide victory during the Michigan primary, Joe Biden cemented his status as the Democratic front-runner. With back to back wins under his belt, the former vice-president confidently believed that it would be “nearly impossible” for Sen. Bernie Sanders to beat him.
After winning Michigan, Missouri, and Mississippi, Biden declared that his campaign run is “very much alive.” Biden’s seemingly Lazarus like comeback had made him confident enough to release a path to victory memo, which predicts that Sanders would have a hard time trying to catch up more than 150 delegates that he had netted during the primaries.
He also went on to claim that Republicans have predicted him to earn a total of 400 delegates in his entire presidential run. Biden’s campaign team also expected him to win states such as Arizona, Ohio, Georgia, Florida, and Illinois.
With his wins, Biden even declared himself as the Democratic nominee set to fight against President Donald Trump in the upcoming 2020 general elections, promising that he would do his best to unseat the current president.
Biden also noted in his memo that it would be difficult for Sanders to recover from such huge losses.
However, it seemed that “crazy Bernie” remains firm in his decision to see through the elections. In his speech in Burlington, Vermont on Wednesday, Sanders reminded everyone that the Democratic party should win the nomination. Sanders cited that the party does not stand a chance to win and stand up against Trump without his long lines of eager supporters.
In his post-primary statement, Sanders said: “Today I say to the Democratic establishment, in order to win in the future, you need to win the voters who represent the future of our country, and you must speak to the issues of concern to them.”
He continued to say that the party should not be too complacent in just winning the support of the older generation. Sanders believed that it is also vital for Biden to appeal to younger voters.
Finally, Sanders concluded that although his campaign had managed to win the “ideological debate,” the real issue is electability. The senator ended his speech by saying that he looks forward to Sunday’s debate with gaffe filled Biden.
On the other hand, while the primaries are heating up, the campaign trail had become frozen over the fear and hysteria of the coronavirus. In fact, the two Democratic delegates (with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard) was originally set to conduct rallies in Ohio. However, both events have been canceled with the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
