Joe Biden Should Probably Stop Threatening Voters Who Could Beat Him Up

By Mollie Hemingway |

Former Vice President Joe Biden has long fantasized about beating up Donald Trump, but during the 2020 Democratic primary, he began challenging voters who challenged him. He called an Iowa farmer a “damn liar,” for example, then challenged him to an IQ test and a push-up contest.

At a campaign event at a factory in Michigan on Tuesday, a voter asked Biden a tough but fair question about how he hoped to get the votes of gun enthusiasts who are union members. What followed must be seen to be believed.

Biden tells the voter he’s full of “sh-t,” wags his finger in his face, and when the voter complains, he suggests that they go outside.

Many people have focused on the erroneous comments Biden frequently makes about guns. He falsely claims he has no desire to limit AR-15s (which he calls AR-14s) but he previously told Anderson Cooper he did.    [...more]

Clyburn Asks DNC to 'Shut This Primary Down' to Protect Biden From Something He 'Cannot Overcome'

By Tyler O'Neil |

As the Super Tuesday II results began to trickle in, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told NPR that the Democratic National Committee should "shut this primary down" and even cancel debates if former Vice President Joe Biden won big that evening and became the "prohibitive nominee." He went on to suggest that the party needs to cancel the primary in order to protect Joe Biden from himself.

"I think when the night is over, Joe Biden will be the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination, and quite frankly, if the night ends the way it has begun, I think it is time for us to shut this primary down, it is time for us to cancel the rest of these debates — because you don’t do anything but get yourself in trouble if you continue in this contest when it’s obvious that the numbers will not shake out for you," Clyburn told NPR.     [...more]

Approval of U.S. Congressional Republicans Tops Democrats

by Megan Brenan |

More Americans approve of the job congressional Republicans are doing than of congressional Democrats' performance -- 40% vs. 35%. The rating for Republicans in Congress has risen six percentage points since late October, before the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives. Over the same period, congressional Democrats' approval rating has edged down three points and disapproval has climbed five points, from 57% to 62%.

In general, congressional Democrats have historically had slightly higher job approval ratings than congressional Republicans. The average approval rating since 1999, when Gallup began periodically tracking both, is 41% for the Democrats in Congress and 35% for the Republicans in Congress. Yet, Republicans have edged out Democrats a number of times over the 21-year trend.    [...more]
