The Democrats seem hellbent on handing President Trump a landslide in November, don’t they?
First, it seems that they haven’t learned their lesson from 2016 yet, and don’t realize that they cannot win a national election without the youth voting bloc jumping on board with the eventual nominee. The older liberals will vote for who they’re going to vote for, but the youth demographic is the only place that anything can really happen. Without the kids, they’re doomed in the general election.
So, with Bernie Sanders out and his supporters again declaring that they won’t vote for the presumptive nominee, the party is walking directly into the path of a Trumpian landslide, led by former Vice President Joe Biden.
Just how bad is it? Pretty bad.
About 44 percent of respondents said they would stick with presumptive nominee Biden.
And it gets worse.
The likely voters were asked, “Based on what you know today, do you agree or disagree that Democrats should nominate Governor Andrew Cuomo for president instead of Joe Biden?”
Respondents comprised 361 Democrat respondents, 349 Republican respondents, and 262 independents.
“Among people of any party — including independents — who voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, the percentage favoring Cuomo increased to 57 percent,” the Postreported. “Of those who voted for President Trump in 2016, 53 percent wanted Democrats to keep Biden.”
Approximately 55 percent of black voters, who helped Biden defeat now twice-failed presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), said they preferred Cuomo, with 45 percent saying they favored Biden.
Regardless of party affiliation, younger voters ages 25 to 34 tallied 66 percent for Cuomo, as 57 percent of all women picked him, and 58 percent of Hispanics chose the governor.
Meanwhile, in the White House, a party planner is undoubtedly rifling through their Rolodex, trying to snap up a primo venue for Trump’s 2020 victory party.
