Alan Dershowitz is one of the more respected legal voices on TV today.
While he has regularly railed against Hillary Clinton and backed Trump over the last two years, Dershowitz revealed he will probably vote for Joe Biden come election day.
He IS a Liberal
The shock and awe that blew up social media after Dershowitz’ reveal was a bit of a surprise. While he has defended Trump regularly, people seem to have forgotten the fact Dershowitz is a registered Democrat and a noted liberal.
People may have forgotten this fact because, over the last two years, Dershowitz has regularly taken up a position behind Trump as Democrats continue their attacks on Trump.
Dershowitz has also been very critical of the way Robert Mueller handled both himself and the investigation into collusion between Trump and the Russians.
His ferocious defense of Trump seems to have made people forget his actual political ideology.
On Biden, Dershowitz stated, “I’m a strong supporter of Joe Biden. I like Joe Biden. I’ve liked him for a long time, and I could enthusiastically support Joe Biden.”
The one Democrat candidate Dershowitz was adamant he could not get behind in 2020 is Bernie Sanders.
The fact that Sanders supported Jeremy Corbyn was enough to turn Dershowitz away from Bernie.
While he did not say he would actually vote for Trump in that scenario, he did say he would definitely not opt to support Sanders.
If Biden’s campaign continues down the path it’s on right now, Biden is going to need that vote.
Biden’s 41% and 27-point lead have all but disappeared over the last two weeks, with several candidates now within single points of the former VP.
