Why is there so little enthusiasm for Biden? Because he is a career politician with a track record of failure?

    this time last year, the DNC  Primaries were still boasting "the most-diverse, most-progressive slate of candidates EVER"... the biggest names in the party were Bernie, Mayor Pete and a group of young women in Congress who made their names defeating longtime DNC soldiers in the primaries and immediately voicing criticism at party leadership, including Nancy Pelosi...

    it really looked like 2020 would be the Democrats' turn to purge the entrenched, same-old/same-old elements in their party and let people outside DC and the major TV markets on the Coasts select much-needed new leadership...

    things were looking even better when Warren and Harris, clearly the "show pieces" hand-picked by the Old Gard establishment  to be their latest mouthpieces, sank double digits in the polls behind Bernie and trailed outsiders (Mayor Pete) and moderates (Gabbard, Bloomberg) alike...

    but then the Old Guard...still unwilling to let go of the party and its purse strings....decided to go all in with Biden.. at first, it appeared Joe was only there to actually make Warren and Harris look better (if you recall, Harris opened by calling out Joe for his past "racism" while Warren was purposely paired with Bernie in the early debates)...

    suddenly, the DNC race became about race, gender and class....and the TV networks ate it up like crack-laced candy... instead of finding a message to move everyone ahead, the DNC fell back into doing what it had done for over a decade... identify victims and victimizers while assigning blame...

    think I'm just spouting "conservative bias?".... look at the county maps from the 2020 DNC California Primary (which took place before the pandemic, by the way)... Bernie won over 50 of the state's 58 counties including San Francisco and ALL of Southern California.

    think about that... Biden lost Hollywood and Beverly Hills.... he lost in Chinatown, East LA and South Central....he lost among tech workers in Silicon Valley and longshoremen in the ports...what's more, he lost to Bernie among moderate and  fiscally-conservative democrats in Orange County and San Diego...

    Biden represents a step back some 28 years for the Party...when a populist named Bill Clinton said the country was tired of the rich old country-clubbers from the Northeast that the DNC churned out year after year...

    Biden doesn't represent workers...he doesn't represent farmers ..he doesn't represent entrepreneurs... he doesn't represent liberals and her most certainly doesn't represent progressives..

    Biden represents a very small, very old faction in DC.... he represents a style of government by a self-appointed elite that had been marginalized within his own party since the 1970s.

    Clinton knew it back in 1992.....voters still remember it today...

    so honestly.... after all this time, what reason IS there to be excited?

    Biden up by 12 points with almost 75 million mail-in ballots cast.

    I'd say that is a lot of enthusiasm.

    Why is Trump continuing to lose the support of white women? The elderly? Veterans?
