It appears as though Republicans have found the Biden-Harris campaign’s achilles heel, at least for the time being.
Biden has been a slippery candidate to catch, at least in the polling, as he continues to hold a steady lead in most national surveys. President Trump has had his ups and down, and appears now to be on a steady march to close the gap.
In order to do so, the Trump campaign, (and the conservative media companies who hope to help him), are going to need to hammer on the points that Biden and Harris simply can’t seem to connect on – namely, their obsessive unwillingness to give any answer whatsoever when asked whether or not they’d consider packing the Supreme Court with additional justices should they be elected.
In fact, the focus on this singular issue has been so intense as of late, that Joe Biden is getting visibly annoyed with the whole thing.
Joe Biden (D) said during an interview this week that voters do not deserve to know his position on court packing.
“I know you said yesterday you aren’t going to answer the question until after the election, but this is the number one thing that I’ve been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days,” the interviewer stated.
“Well, you’ve been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans who don’t want me continuing to talk about what they are doing to the court right now,” Biden responded.
When asked if the voters “deserve” to know his answer, Biden said, “No, they don’t.”
“I’m not going to play his game. He’d love me to talk about — and I’ve already said something on packing the court, court packing,” Biden continued[…]
Both Biden and running mate Kamala Harris have been unable to answer the question during debates or out on the campaign trail, leading many to believe that their answer would be unpopular among voters on both sides of the aisle.
