(PatriotHeadline.Com)- Just at the time when former Vice President Joe Biden needs to prove to his party that he’s the man to take down President Donald Trump, a poll shows that most Democrats don’t even want him as their candidate. The national survey, commissioned by the Club for Growth, shows that a majority of respondents would prefer New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The likely Democrat voters were asked, “Based on what you know today, do you agree or disagree that Democrats should nominate Governor Andrew Cuomo for president instead of Joe Biden?”
Some 56% of respondents would prefer the New York politician, who has arguably been more visible in the media in recent weeks than Biden. The governor is overseeing the massive coronavirus outbreak in New York City and showing, in his daily press briefings, exactly how he is working with the state and federal government to save lives and slow the spread of the disease.
Imagine if just 44% of the Republican Party wanted to keep Trump as the candidate for November…it would be national headlines! But, other than a report from the New York Post, the story hasn’t gotten anywhere near the traction it would have if the shoe was on the other foot.
The poll was conducted confidentially between April 3 and 6, to ensure that respondents were being as honest as possible. Interestingly, it found that the categories of voters who were most fond of the idea of replacing Biden with Cuomo were young people, women, self-identified liberals, and Hispanics. That’s quite a chunk of the Democratic party right there.
However, it doesn’t look like their hopes will come true. Governor Cuomo has remained vigilant and worked alongside the president to keep on top of the coronavirus crisis in New York and has signaled that is his only focus right now. Last month he explicitly said that he was not intending to run for president.
Joe Kildea, the vice president of communications for the Club for Growth, claimed that with every major news event, the Democrats realize that Biden is a terrible candidate.
Could Joe Biden be a worse candidate than Hillary Clinton? Is that possible?
