Would it be wise for Democrats to not vote for a certain candidate if they don’t intrinsically agree with their policies, or what they’ve stood for in the past? Is it morally just that someone who is more of a progressive, and finds value in the policies Bernie has put front and centret to vote for a hard lined Democrat like Biden. Vice versa can be said in relation to those who describe Biden as a force to be reckoned with, and someone with a decent record.
When the news broke last night of Biden unexpectedly nabbing state after state on Super Tuesday, Bernie fans were to say the least annoyed. Some supporters on the Biden front saw their responses as those of “sore losers’ ‘. This ever present divide within the Democratic Party looks to be only getting worse. People deciding to not vote if Joe Biden wins the nomination have moved towards this route because they don’t see any other solution. Like people described in the past, it would be like making a choice between “two evils’ ‘.
They also see it as even if they did support Joe Biden with unapologetic fervor, he would still manage to lose to Trump. The stumbling, and lack of an attention span during various past debates has people not believing in Biden. Especially because of Trump’s reputation for being alert and able to do hour long speeches without a care in the world. Trump will be ready to take on Biden, but what some have assessed from watching Bernie is that it could be a harder route for Trump in terms of combatting him.
Knocking Bernie off his game when it comes to conversation is a hard thing to do. Painting the scene now, Bernie and Trump on the debate stage together would be pretty mind boggling. Trump if he takes the traditional maaneveru would find something to attack Bernie on superficially, and Bernie would just go on about healthcare and the facts at hand. This is how Bernie in many people’s minds would be able to defeat Trump and win the presidency. So, when the case is made that Biden is the only one who possesses that ability, there are obvious holes there.
Right now Americans are facing a revolution. Not solely concerning this race, but among other things. Ironically during the start of every new decade changes do present themselves. A united transformation in what we as a society find important, and what we do not seems to be what’s happening here. Although shifts can be difficult maybe that’s what we desire to improve on this not so positive reality. Things that are hailed as abundantly necessary right now, could soon become a thing of the past.
