As I documented more explicitly in the post preceding the one you replied to, his standing with Democrats has not slipped.My comment is not about Biden's national standing; it's about his standing with Democrats, and how's that standing looking today?
EXACTLY.tbh I don't recall many people being excited about Biden before trump got busted trying to extort a foreign ally for dirt on him
Let us see where Biden, with his high national poll numbers, is in a few weeks. He may recover, but in the race to the first hurtle -- the nomination -- he is no longer in the lead.As I documented more explicitly in the post preceding the one you replied to, his standing with Democrats has not slipped.
Your problem is that you don't seem to realize that his standing with Democrats was not as strong as some people thought it was in the first place...
It's kind of like Romney in 2012. He didn't excite people, but he was the Repubs choice (based on primaries).
And to help drive this home for NatMorton further...
The reason that Repubs and Trump were so eager to throw out dirt onto Biden in the first place was because of his polling strength regarding Trump v Biden. That's the whole reason I pointed out it has not really slipped in post #107.
But for those who want to fixate on whether or not Biden's standing "with Democrats" was still strong, they didn't really have any good sense of what it was in the first place...

Didn't you know?same thing happened to HRC in 08 against Barry
You really do love to go off on tangents, foundit.
Saying "he is no longer in the lead" is the first true thing you've said on this thread today.
But the reason for that is not what you claim. Looking at his polling numbers, he took a dive starting at the start of February. Obviously nothing to do with Trump's attacks MONTHS ago...
Didn't you know?
Trump made that happen too!
Like when Vice President Bush's son was given 10% ownership in a major league baseball franchise, to be general manager?Don't be obtuse, Clara. If you have kids, you know something given to a child is easily perceived as benefit to the parent.
You are seriously living in a cracked glass house trying to throw that hand grenade...You really do love to go off on tangents, foundit.
Again, you're dodging the point.Back to the point: I think the constant media coverage that mentioning Biden-Ukraine-Hunter-Burisma hurt Biden -- may be not nationally, but with the Democratic voters in Iowa and NH. If you'd like an explanation of why they might have thought this, you can read it here: An emerging weakness for Biden
It is hilarious you say that.There is no getting around the fact that Biden underperformed dramatically, first in Iowa and then NH.
Agree Burisma isn’t the only reason for Biden’s problems. I am, however, increasingly of the opinion that it is one of them.You are seriously living in a cracked glass house trying to throw that hand grenade...
But I get that you are trying to avoid acknowledging ACTUALLY TOPICAL COMMENTS with a quick and dismissive pretense as you ignore them completely.
Again, you're dodging the point.
Everybody gets that you have thoughts.
The problem for you is checking reality AND LOOKING AT THE FACTS repudiates your assessments.
Your "explanation" is full of holes. Like I pointed out, anybody who looks at polling of the Democrat candidates will see that Biden started taking a nose-dive at the start of February.
Trying to say that was due to Repubs spreading lies about the Ukraine and Burisma is laughable.
It is hilarious you say that.
I explicitly acknowledged that in the post you responded to. But you dismissed everything I said and claimed it was a "tangent". Perhaps you couldn't be troubled to read...
The problem, though, resides in THE REASONING for his under-performance. Trump deserves no credit for that. Biden has been pulling some especially stupid stuff lately.
