As a Bernie Supporter I think Biden will lose to Trump if he continues to do these steps [View all]

I like Joe Biden as a person and plan on voting for him in the general however, he has made some mistakes that makes me think will cost us in the general.

1. He has come against Medicare for All, poll after poll says Democrats want Medicare for All and this is going to be a damper on enthusiasm from young voters we need to show up.

2. I'm really worried about his debates with Trump in the fall, he says things that we know of uncle Joe that we know that are off putting to voters and Trump will capitalize on to try to win. I won't name them but you know some of the headlines in the news.

3. He is more moderate in his positions then the democratic party of today in general, he still has positions from the 1970s such as busing, foreign policy, and health care.

4. There is an enthusiasm gap between him and Trump, from the ABC poll 53% are enthusiastic to vote for Trump while only 24% for Biden. This is important because Obama won because so many people were excited to vote for him and if Biden can't replicate that enthusiasm we are going to have a very nervous night on November 4th.

5. I know this going to get heat but he needs to convince Liberal personalities such Joe Rogan and TYT, say what you want but they have a lot of sway in the younger generation crowd. One of the reasons we lost in 2016 because we had a divided left.

I think one of things Joe has gone for him is that he was Obama's VP, he will be President if overcomes these flaws.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
