Bernie Sanders has suspended his 2020 race for the White House today, setting up the showdown that we always knew was coming.
This latest move by the Vermont Senator has made two things very clear: Former Vice President Joe Biden is now the presumptive Democratic nominee, and Donald Trump will almost certainly wipe the floor with him in November.
Bernie Sanders suspended his Democratic presidential campaign on Wednesday, effectively ensuring former Vice President Joe Biden will be the party’s nominee even as the liberal Vermont senator vowed to continue to lead his “movement” into the future.
Citing Biden’s lead of more than 300 convention delegates, Sanders declared: “The path toward victory is virtually impossible.”
He continued: “I have concluded that this battle for the Democratic nomination will not be successful. … I do not make this decision lightly.”
Biden has been an incredibly unpopular candidate among the liberal left, and that is a voting bloc that the Democratic Party will need in order to stand a chance in November – a lesson that they have seemingly ignored despite the results of the 2016 election.
Further confounding the left’s chances at retaking the White House are credible allegations of sexual assault against Biden by former staffer Tara Reade, whose accusations have been largely ignored by the mainstream media.
