Hillary Clinton continues her stunning fall from grace, as the former First Lady and Secretary of State just can’t seem to stem the bleeding that surrounds her corrupt campaign. Each new day sees more disaffected voters abandoning her and moving into one of two other camps – that of socialist Bernie Sanders or undeclared candidate Joe Biden.
In fact, the latest Bloomberg Politics National Poll now shows Joe Biden drawing 25% of the Democrat vote for President! What makes this truly amazing is the fact that Biden isn’t even one of the candidates… yet.
Clinton, once the prohibitive front-runner, is now the top choice of 33 percent of registered Democrats and those who lean Democrat, the poll shows. Biden places second with 25 percent and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is at 24 percent. The other three Democratic candidates combined are the top choice for less than 4 percent of that base…
As Clinton’s numbers have dropped, the vice president has been openly mulling a late entry into the race. But he is delaying a decision to allow himself and his family an opportunity to grieve the death of his son Beau to brain cancer.
The latest Bloomberg survey shows the vice president at par with Sanders, in terms of Democratic support nationally. Adding to the good news for the vice president: His favorability ratings are on the rise. Since the last Bloomberg poll in April, Clinton’s favorability ratings have dropped 10 points, from 48 percent to 38 percent. Biden’s 49 percent favorable score represents a 3-point uptick. He was the only one of a dozen national political figures and entities whose approval rating improved over the summer.
Even tougher for the Clinton campaign is the fact that near half of the Democrat Party wishes that Biden would run against Clinton!
You can see the collapse of the Clinton campaign much more clearly in this interesting graphic from Real Clear Politics.
It seems that even Hillary Clinton can’t withstand having her campaign constantly mired in the disgusting muck of corruption and scandal while still being able to convince people to vote for her. With Biden’s interest in running growing, the Clinton campaign is getting very worried about what the future might look like. Because Clinton’s team has begun to fear “the Rise of Biden,” they’ve also begun to lay the groundwork for Biden’s doom (I’m not kidding).
So, in a struggle to win the nomination, who’ll end up on top – Biden or Clinton?
