We are officially in the silliest part of the electoral season, with candidates making sometimes forceful final pushes in order to win over undecided voters, or perhaps even turn a few previously-decided voters to their sides.
There are more than a few ways to pick up steam in these late stages of an election, as we’ve seen from the campaign trail this week.
For Joe Biden, it’s unleashing the full force of the Democratic party in key battleground states, very specifically calling on his former boss, Barack Obama, to make long and vitriolic speeches in Florida and elsewhere, both targeting President Trump and reminding the nation that Biden is Obama’s buddy.
For Donald Trump, this late push includes large, raucous rallies, mostly. But, late in the race, a major endorsement has now rolled into camp.
The Boston Herald endorsed President Trump for reelection, declaring that America doesn’t need the “unfeasible spending spree in the name of a progressive utopia” that would occur if Democratic nominee Joe Biden won on Election Day.
“The 2020 presidential election is about what people don’t want as much as what they actually do want. For the left, getting Donald Trump out of office tops the wish list. It’s been that way since the day after the 2016 election. For them, everything the president has done is bad, every move sinister, and every policy one more nail in the progressive coffin,” the Herald’s editorial staff wrote.
The Herald endorsement didn’t come without some levity though.
“To be fair, Trump hasn’t done himself any favors with his incessant Tweets, revolving door cabinet and mixed messaging on the coronavirus. Biden allegedly offers a return to ‘normalcy.’ But, what’s normal in 2020? Biden’s platform is a risky love letter to social justice warriors and those who believe capitalism is the root of all evil,” the endorsement continued.
National polling hasn’t looked terribly comfortable for President Trump as of late, however, leaving some to wonder if this endorsement may have been a buck short and a day late.
