Democratic Party Divided Over Biden Fears

( – The Democrat party is experiencing levels of cognitive dissonance and internal debate unlike anything in recent memory after President Joe Biden’s disastrous debate performance led as much as 60% of the American voting public to call for his immediate removal due to incompetence and senility.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a one-time favorite of the party, said that he thinks voters can determine that Biden’s policies are beneficial and called for “maturity” in making their decisions. Sanders highlighted that the contest isn’t about popularity or debate performance (it’s about both, actually) but rather he believes voters should focus on “who has the best policies.” He added that he was going to do everything within his power to help Biden win the election.

Quietly there is dissent among the ranks, however, with some donors and others within the party wanting to replace him. Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) called for Biden to step down from the race suggesting the stakes were too high for Biden to lose to Trump. Doggett suggested Biden could act as a king-maker and encouraged him to help foster a new generation of leadership.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told the corporate media that it was a “legitimate question” as to whether or not Biden’s issues are chronic or acute. Pelosi added that she hasn’t spoken directly to Biden following the debate, but said she knew he was aware of the stakes.

Privately, associates of would-be Biden replacements like Vice President Kamala Harris or California Gov. Gavin Newsom have suggested conversations are taking place behind the scenes regarding what to do if Biden drops out or steps down from the presidency. One of the major points being discussed is who would be the new running mate with whispers of Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) or Gov. Andy Beshear (D-KY) as potential options.

Election strategist Tim Miller, who’s worked for both Republican and Democrat candidates, said that he’s been maligned by pro-Biden activists who replied to his suggestion that Biden should be replaced by sharing pictures of his family. Miller said he’s hearing the whispers in private that Biden may need to step down.

Biden may not step away due to the substantial size of his campaign war chest, however. They’ve raised $127 million just last month, including $33 million the day of the debate. The numbers won’t be verified until official campaign filings are made later this month.
