A presidential candidate’s spouse can be one of a campaign’s most important assets. Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, is no exception. However, according to Fox News, Dr. Biden gave her husband a strange endorsement.

“Speaking at a bookstore in Manchester, N.H., Dr. Jill Biden urged voters on Monday to consider the ‘electability’ of her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, ahead of the 2020 Democratic primaries, and how they may have to ‘swallow a little bit’ with the Democratic front-runner in order to defeat President Trump.

“I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race,’ Dr. Biden said.”

Dr. Biden went on to note that for any Democrat to win the 2020 general election, he or she is going to have to attract independent and Republican voters. She also suggested that most people, even Republicans, cannot be “proud of” President Trump, largely because of what some see as his off-putting behavior.

She ended her talk by saying, “So yes, you know, your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, healthcare than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”

Usually, when someone is touting someone for political office, especially the presidency of the United States, one aspect of the sale is the candidate’s agenda. The person running for office will create jobs at home, make peace abroad, give more people access to healthcare and education. Jill Biden acknowledged that on policy issues alone, Biden is out of sync with most Democrats. Biden is an old, establishment politician. Democrats like things like Medicare for All or the Green New Deal.

However, Fox News also notes that, at least according to its polling, Biden has the best chance to beat President Trump; in 2020. Biden is ahead 50 percent to 38 percent. The poll numbers have caused Trump to wonder “what is going on” at Fox News? To be fair, most analysts believe that head to head poll numbers over a year before a general election are meaningless. Trump was behind Hillary Clinton in the polls days before he won in 2016.

A more recent CNN poll has some good news for Biden and little but heartburn for his Democratic opponents. Biden is polling at 29 percent, up seven from a late June poll. Kamala Harris, who seemed to threaten the former vice president after giving him a thrashing in the first Democratic debates, has plunged from 17 percentage points to just five. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren round things out at 15 percent and 14 percent respectively, Mind, Iowa and New Hampshire are still months away.

Still, the poll numbers tend to prove Jill Biden’s thesis that Democrats should care who can best beat the president than someone pure on the issues.

“Biden is also bolstered by those voters who say their top priority is choosing a candidate with a strong chance of beating President Donald Trump, a group that makes up 54% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters (35% in that group support Biden). That group has shrunk slightly since June when 61% said defeating Trump outweighed nominating a candidate who shares your positions on major issues.

“While Democrats do not appear sharply divided on this question by ideology (53% of liberals and 57% of moderate or conservative Democratic voters say beating Trump is more important), race (54% among whites and non-whites prioritize beating Trump) or partisanship (52% of self-identified Democrats prioritize beating Trump as do 59% of Democratic-leaning independents), there are notable divisions by age and by education among whites, which highlights the challenge facing candidates when they attempt to appeal to those on both sides of this line.”

The bottom line, according to political analysts, is that Biden’s main strength is that he polls well against President Trump. The question that arises is that what if the vice president’s continued gaffes start to cast some doubt on this idea? If Biden proves to be not up to the rigors of a campaign, how can he be expected to handle himself against Trump, a man with a great deal of vigor, especially for a man of his age? The question, looking at history, will only be answered as the various primaries start and the huge slate of candidates start to be winnowed down.

  1. Someone who poles well this far out from the election is meaningless against President Trump. When the Democrats pick their candidate then the polling will make a little more sense. Having said that, the Trump followers are somewhat hard to pin down as we found out in the last election

  2. Mrs. Biden hasn’t the vaguest idea what elections are all about.
    Mrs. Biden, elections are about placing in office the very best candidate.
    Never has there been an election to place second, third, fourth . . . twenty-fourth least best in office. I can not believe you were ever a teacher. God help all the students you infected with your ignorance. You are one anti-American if ever there was one!

  3. Good grief.Does Jill think we can take a deep breath and swallow for 4 to 8 years. Everyone will have to walk around with GasX tablets.That much air will surely put us all in competition with the cows.

  4. I think most Americans suspect polling results. They have a sense of who stands for something and who is worthy of their support. For me all the polling showing Biden defeating President Trump is ridiculous because all former VP Biden has done since entering the race is mess up, make mistakes and say things that make a person question his capacity to govern. I think if President Trump had his choice he would love running his reelection campaign against Biden. I do not imagine that he is all that concerned about any of the announced democrat presidential candidates. They are border line marginal candidates that do not seem capable of capturing wide spread support from main stream citizens.

  5. Like who gives a rats ass about what any of these liberal pie in the sky and ‘freebies for all’.buffoons have to say? Really they’ve nothing to offer America and the American people but more socialistic BULLSHIT along with the appurtenant demise that comes along with socialism . It’d be great if these clowns called themselves ‘socialists’ up front but they won’t as many here in America have experience with this failed political concept These idiotic liars and thieving buffoons are only good for good for a laughs if that,. But beware these liberal snakes in the grass are deceptive and are doing and saying anything and everything to get back the White House in 2020. Thankfully the American people are smart and have had their fill of socialism after the 8 year luxury vacation of the worthless black POS obozo in which nothing got done for middle class Americans, a class this thieving and lying black bastard promised to help, and in the end only a select few get obscenely rich while the rest of us get SQUAT..Hopefully ‘good ole ‘touchy feely’ joey biden’s got as much chance of getting the nomination as mickey mouse, Hopefully the American voters realize these liberal buffoons have nothing to offer America or the American people, period! Time to wake up America, these idiots are only good for a few laughs at that.

  6. How can anyone vote democratic after what they put Trump through. They are the most corrupt people that has ever been in Congress. Pelosi needs to retire where she can stay home and be drunk all the time. Maybe the tax payer will keep more money if she’s at home not buying alcohol . They need to vote the squad 4 out of office. They are against the American people so they need to go.

  7. The phrase “re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic” always springs to mind whenever I read about the demonrats trying to decide who has the best chance of beating Donald Trump in 2020…short of DJT running over a superfluity of nuns, nothing is going to stop him winning a 2nd term as POTUS…

    My humble prediction is that DJT will not only will re-election by a landslide but also that the Republicans will regain the House by a huge majority. Can you imagine if Donald getting 100% support from Congress and the House how the USA will flourish.?

    His first move when he does get re-elected MUST be to imprison both of the Clintons, James Comey, the entire ‘squad’, Pelosi, Maxine Waters and anyone else involved in the Russian Hoax, the swamp or Jeffery Epstein’s assisted suicide or pedophilia …his second move should be to declare that a sitting President can serve at least 5 terms.

    If the American people just open their ears and eyes, it will be a very long time before the demonrats even come close to getting back into the White House or House.

  8. If anyone wants to lose your american freedom , then yes vote for a Democrat. Joe Biden will make sure you lose everything including your freedom! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Looks like Joe’s wife is as foggy as her husband.
    Can’t imagine either on of them fulfilling the white House duties.

  10. Hello to former Vice-President Biden’s Beautiful wife Jill. I am a WW II Disabled Veteran an I’ve read your entire article concerning the upcoming 20 -20 Presidential election!!! You certainly gave your husband a STRONG boost. Jill there some very bad Democrat items on their Dogma, that turn off many older American voters: eg: abortion, “freebies” for all persons, including ALL ILLEGALS. Your dogma includes a plea for foreigners to come to America, and you know that is a violation of IMMIGRATION LAWS that have been lacking FULL enforcement for, far too many years!!!
    Our current President Donald John Trump, in office for just two years has accomplished more for The United States of America that Illegally elected Obama did in TWO FULL TERMS in office, and Jill if you will just be totally HONEST you know that is absolutely the truth,

    Much love in Jesus Christ and for His great cause; Saving sinners like me, you and the rest of the world!!!

  11. vote for Biden need some kind of leaders up there that know something for the people by the people that looks in the future a little way anyway.

  12. Jill say hold your nose or hold your hose ,is that really what’s best best for AMERICA, ,,kick her ass, out with creepy JOE… units in government .
    Walk away from the Democratic Party ,,, now is the times for all good men to realize the Party has been Wrong at everything. …
    Vote Republican and yes Donald Trump, ,,Absolutely Yes…

  13. “Joke” Biden is incoherent, confused, rudderless, mealy mouthed, and incompetent. He is the perfect democRAT candidate for the WH.

  14. HEY JILL YOU ANALOGY OF ” SWALLOW A LITTLE BIT ” IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR A WOMAN WHOSE HUSBAND IS TRYING TO CLEAN UP HIS IMAGE.
    FIRST HE IS A DEMOCRAT AND A BROWN NOSE OBAMA LEFT OVER! wE DON’T WANT HIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE.WE DON’T WANT SOCIALISM /COMMUNISM IN THIS COUNTRY, SO THE BUNCH OF MISFITS THAT REPRESENT THE DEMOCRAPS HAVE NO CHANCE OF GETTING THE VOTE IN 2020!
    CONSERVATIVES WILL SEE TO IT! YOU CAN IMPORT AS MANY MISFITS AND UNEDUCATED VOTERS, AND PAY THEM THE DOLLAR A DAY, BUT IN THE END, YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY!

  15. I would like to point out that Jill Biden never said that voters should “hold their nose” and vote for Joe. This has been widely misreported after Sean Hannity asserted that on his show. She said “swallow a bit” but the “hold their nose” part was inserted by Hannity.
    I am a big fan of Hannity and not a fan of Biden, but this type of shameless lying needs to stop.

  16. Howdy very nice web site!! Man .. Beautiful .. Superb .. I’ll bookmark your blog and take the feeds also…I’m glad to find a lot of helpful info here within the publish, we’d like work out extra techniques on this regard, thanks for sharing. . . . . .
