Joe Biden Tells A Majority Of Americans That They Shouldn’t Vote For Him

( Joe Biden has an interesting strategy for winning the presidential election: He’s telling most Americans not to vote for him.
During an interview on MSNBC recently, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president said people who believe Tara Reade’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her should vote for someone else.
“I think they should vote their heart, and if they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me,” Biden said during the interview with Lawrence O’Donnell. “I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”
It’s an interesting strategy Biden is employing here. On one hand, it shows strength. He’s standing behind his consistent denial that Reade’s claims of sexual assault while she was a staffer for him in the early 1990s are untrue. After all, who would say “don’t vote for me” if they were confident in those claims?
On the other hand, it’s just downright stupid. According to two polls, more Americans believe Reade’s accusation than Biden’s denial.
In early May, a Harvard-Harris poll found that 55% of respondents at least “somewhat” believed Reade is telling the truth. Around that same time frame, a Monmouth University poll found 37% of Americans believe Reade’s allegations are “probably true,” compared to only 32% who said they probably aren’t true.
Among independent voters, a large plurality (42%) believe Reade compared to only 22% who don’t believe her. Not surprisingly, 55% of Democrats don’t believe Reade, compared to 20% who say they believe her.
If these numbers hold true, and voters take Biden’s advice when they head to the polls come November, the Democrat could be in a lot of trouble.
The most ironic part about this entire statement from Biden is that if you believe what he’s saying now, and what he’s said in the past about women who have accused powerful men of sexual assault, then you shouldn’t vote for him.
During the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh only two years ago, Biden made it clear that women like Christine Blasey Ford — who accused the nominee of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers — should be believed.
During Kavanaugh’s hearings, Biden said of Ford:
“For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real.”
If you compare the situation with Ford and Kavanaugh in 2018 to Reade and Biden now, they’re very similar indeed. So, again, if you take Biden at his word, then you should at least believe the “essence” of what Reade is saying is real. In a way, this would suggest that even if Biden didn’t actually sexually assault Reade, then he certainly did something that was inappropriate.
The whole situation with Reade is very sticky for Biden and Democrats. To this point, the party has stood behind their candidate.
They’ve chosen loyalty over consistency. They’ve chosen trying to take down President Donald Trump and Republicans over staying consistent in their support for women accusers.
In a word, they’ve chosen to be hypocrites because it benefits them.
