Bidenís looming cash crunch
The Politico ^ | October 4, 2019 | Natasha Korecki

‘Biden looks like he can’t compete with Warren, Bernie and Buttigieg. How’s he going to compete with Trump?’ said one GOP strategist.

Joe Biden’s middling $15.2 million third-quarter fundraising haul is raising fresh questions about whether the former vice president’s campaign can withstand a new onslaught of Republican ad attacks while simultaneously waging a battle for the Democratic nomination.

Biden’s campaign has long framed his candidacy around the idea that he can beat Trump in a head-to-head contest, particularly in the battleground states that were central to Trump’s 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton.

But Biden’s polling numbers in the Democratic primary have declined in recent months, and his fundraising has also lagged — he collected $7 million less between July and the end of September than in the second quarter.

His latest fundraising round was more than $9 million behind his closest rival in the polls — Elizabeth Warren. His total also ran well behind Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders.

Please hang on for at least 6 more months.

Bernie’s support will go to Warren; Hillary will announce and the catfight will be epic

Rush should promote another Operation Chaos and help Biden get the nomination. He has major baggage going forward and he has no answers for his son’s sweetheart deals.

The Democrats are going to be digging up dead people out of cemeteries as new whistleblowers—that is their primary constituency after all!

(The new CIA rules allow for zombie whistleblowers-right? ;-) )

I do not believe they will let HRC run again. She is pure poison. She thinks everyone loves her and she’d win, *correcting* the aberration of the 2016 election but all she has done is whine and blame everyone but the dogcatcher since 2016. Everyone is sick to death of her. Plus her most recent tour had to be cancelled b/c no one was buying tickets. Not gonna happen.

Biden is toast.

He just doesn't realize how badly the toast is burnt yet.

We all love folks who use their office to get $1B deals for their dead beat druggie whore-chasing cashiered naval officer sons. Its what we all aspire to. It’s the American way.

Quid Pro Joe is going to need lots of cash to pay for a good legal team. The really bad stuff hasn’t come out yet.

Well, the good part is he took lots of Libtard money and will continue to do so. Bernie probably wont get much more because he had a penalty of infarction.

Obama warned Joe—don’t do it (run for president).

Some guys just don’t listen...

Joe may have a lot of time to think about it from his Ukrainian cell.

My guess is he’ll hang on through Super Tuesday. He’ll lose IA and NH because they’re overrun by over-educated white communists, probably win SC due to the black vote, and get squashed in CA, ending his campaign. That will leave Princess Gray Beaver. I suspect the Witch won’t get in due to serious, undisclosed health problems that will make it impossible for her to run the rugged campaign she’d have to run.

".... a penalty of infarction...."

Lol! Good one.

No one is going to vote for an old guy who has a heart attack on the campaign trail. Optics aren't good.

He may get a few sympathy votes or support but his supporters will probably flee to the other candidate of free stuff, Lizzie Indian.
