    If this convict is worried about Biden quitting, it makes me think all the calls for Biden to step down “because he can’t win” might be originating on the right, not the left.

        So the Democratic right-wing ignoring and supressing the center of their constituency again and pretending they can win without compromise. Sounds about right.

      Sorry, I don’t think I’m following your logic – Trump is worried about Biden quitting, so the Republican party is pushing the narrative for Biden to do just that?

      Also, how in the world is the news “insert moderate Democrat here says Biden should step aside,” originating from the right? It’s literally coming from the mouth of a leftist politician.

      I can see right wingers pushing the “don’t vote” narrative, but the calls to step aside? I don’t think so. We all saw the debate, and we’ve all been saying for years that we wish we had a younger candidate. It just so happens that, after Biden’s debate performance, we don’t think it’s possible to win against Trump without one.

      Really not sure where anyone is getting these “the calls to step down originate from the right” conspiracy theories.

      Edit: Ah, I see. There is no logic. So much for Democrats being about reality and facts.

    While the first half of that sentence is totally on brand nonsense, the latter is likely true.

    EXTREMELY hypocritical coming from the Mango Mussolini of all people, of course, but likely accurate nonetheless.

    Sounds like reverse psychology by Trump, now he may just get his way by ensuring Biden stays in the race to the end.

    If Trump is pissed Biden won’t step down, that kinda gives away the game who’s behind the push in the first place.

      Are you saying the all congressional Democrats, and all liberal voters across the US who’ve called for new party leadership are somehow secret conservatives?

      Where is this coming from? I literally just want the best chance of beating Trump and Biden ain’t it.

        Finding the best candidate is a ship that sailed 2 years ago if not 3… Same with prosecuting and jailing Trump before the elections deadline saving him.

        Mistakes were made, the train is chugging at high speed, pulling the emergency break now, 4!!! months before the election, will not end well.

        It is too late to go find another candidate that has any sort of chance to beat Trump.

        Biden still has a hidden card or two, but if too much attention is laid there certain voters will lose interest for sure.

          Still has a hidden card or two? Sounds pretty absurd to me. Honestly – and I don’t want to sound like a dick, so I really do apologize – but this comment sounds like a deluded sports fan in denial that their team is not going to make it out of the playoffs.

          I don’t think the ship sailed if so many top Democrats and donors called for him to step aside. Evidently they didn’t think the ship had sailed yet, so I’m apt to believe them more than a superfan.

          But right now, it’s looking like the snowball did not gain enough momentum to become an avalanche, and Biden will still be the candidate in all likelihood.

            Well I am not a fan, at all, far from it, Biden is too old, he was too old 4 years ago… But it has absolutely no use to choose a new candidate 4 months before the election and still expect to get a landslide win.

            Because without a landslide win there is nothing against the door to stop Trump claiming victory and destroying the USA just for the benefits of his close friends and family (and keeping himself out of jail).

            Heck, it will be like last time, Trump will be found mostly on the golfcourse (and billing the government for it again) and his family and henchmen will run the country for him, ignoring the law, congress and even the constitution. 4 years later Trump will have installed one of his sons permanently in the white house, without an election.

            Only an overwhelmingly Democrat win will give anyone pause and realize that Trump has no right to claim anything (again).

            Currently there just is no blue candidate that the whole country knows all about and can accept enough to massively vote for, and there just is no time to present and get to know one.

            I would almost say make it a dual Democratic ballot in November, any votes for either of the blue candidates go to the eventual winner. But I don’t think the republicans will allow that to happen.
