The Democratic party is still clearly very unhappy with its presumptive nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden.
According to a Rasmussen poll released on Monday, though the majority of the respondents agreed that Joe Biden is the best nominee, it’s clear that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has officially exploded onto the Democrat party’s radar, garnering 45 percent of the vote.
Biden still struggling
The fact that Biden is failing to get a true grip on Democrat voters is stunning at this point. President Donald Trump has had a rough few days and is even starting to get called out by publications on the right after his Monday press conference.
Even as bad as the last week has been for Trump, Democrat voters continue to look for alternatives to Joe Biden. The beneficiary of that doubt is Gov. Cuomo, who has become the media darling during this pandemic.
The mainstream media fails to report how he neglected the state’s stockpile before the outbreak and now touts him as the de facto leader of the country.
This has led to significant support for the notion of replacing him as the nominee. Former Clinton adviser Dick Morris even suggested that Cuomo can win this thing as a write-in candidate.
Cuomo, however, has maintained he has no interest in running for president during this election.
Support for Cuomo growing
It is very easy to understand the growing support for Cuomo, even though he is not on the ballot and is ineligible to run on remaining ballots due to missed filing deadlines.
That, however, has not stopped those looking for someone better than Biden from spinning up this narrative. The latest to join the Cuomo bandwagon is Craig Snyder, the former chief of staff for former Sen. Arlen Specter.
Snyder penned an op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer suggesting Biden simply step aside and give the nod to Cuomo. Snyder wrote, “Andrew Cuomo for president? Joe Biden should make it happen.” He added that Biden should do this “out of a calling to do something good.”
Biden has always maintained his main reason for running was to stop Trump and even though Biden now leads in national polling, most believe when push comes to shove, he will get crushed.
Even with the rising calls for nominating Cuomo, though, it seems unlikely Biden’s hubris would allow him to step aside and let someone else take his moment in the spotlight.
