Biden is the Democrat able to beat Trump

Why I Support Joe Biden:

It’s simple — Joe Biden is the Democrat most able to beat Trump.

Of the 20-odd declared Democrat candidates, Biden is the only one focusing on the No. 1 problem facing our nation: the malignance occupying the White House and the absolute need to remove it. It is questionable if our nation will recover from Trump’s first term unscathed. How about another four? What 2016 should have taught us is Trump has to be taken seriously. He is crazy, but he knows how to win.

The other Democrats, almost herd-like, followed Bernie Sanders to the left. Universal health care, global warming, the growing American education gap, immigration are all huge problems that must be addressed. But the simple fact remains that none of that is going to happen if the Democrats do not take back the White House, the House and the Senate.

The Democratic candidates need to put their egos and personal agendas aside, and focus the party on beating Trump. If they could demonstrate that level of self-control, they would pick Joe. Because Joe is from, can speak to, and can win back the mid-America, blue-collar class that was once the heart and soul of the Democratic Party.

The 2020 election will be won in union halls and small towns across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. I do not see Bernie Sanders doing that. I support Joe Biden because he can.
