Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign just took a tragic hit.
According to a new report on a study from the American National Election Studies, just 19% of Democrats “who said they’d experienced unwanted sexual advances fairly or very often” chose Biden as their top pick for the Dems’ 2020 nomination.
Reports on the poll, which was published in December, renewed speculation that voters are still harboring feelings of unease over Biden, who has faced allegations of inappropriate touching.
Democrat Primary Battle
So far, the Democrats’ primary race has been rather tame.
Most of the candidates are concentrating their attacks on President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr — but that will start to change the closer we get to the election.
At some point, they are actually going to have to go after their opponents — especially Biden, who some say is the frontrunner.
And with Biden actually cracking jokes about the allegations against him at recent campaign stops, there will be more than enough insults to go around.
Problems for Biden
Indeed, allegations against Biden are likely going to become more abundant as the campaign progresses.
Add that to the attacks that will begin to come at him from the other candidates, and this could become a major problem for the former VP.
How can he stand against Kamala Harris with alleged sexual misconduct on his record?
Biden is going to have to find a way to win Democrat women over, and in today’s climate, that could be a real challenge.
Only time will tell how this plays out.
