Sanders and Gabbard take 25 percent of votes in Biden’s hometown

Pennsylvania’s primary election was held on Tuesday, June 3, and polls are reporting that Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is projected to win 19 percent of the state’s votes, as well as 19 percent of Lackawanna County’s votes — Joe Biden’s hometown. Tulsi Gabbard is projected to take three percent of the state’s votes and 6.5 percent of the votes in Lackawanna County. 

Though he’s the last man standing, Biden still could not capture more than 74 percent of voters in his own hometown.

Biden became the presumptive Democratic nominee on April 8 after Sanders suspended his campaign. As the nation grappled with the fallout of the coronavirus, Biden remained holed up in his basement, refusing to hit the campaign trail. 

Though many on the Democratic side would want Americans to believe that the coronavirus is what held Biden back, with much of the nation closed as “experts” encouraged all Americans to shelter-in-place until further notice, it has become more and more apparent that Biden remained hidden away because he is a weak candidate, Tuesday’s election being the perfect illustration of that fact.

Biden has made blunder after blunder. About a week before the death of George Floyd, and the nationwide protests and riots that have followed, Biden suggested that if you don’t vote for him in November, well then “you ain’t black.” 

In March, sexual assault allegations from Tara Reade, a former Biden staffer, came to light, and when finally pressed on the issue, he said: “I think they should vote their heart and if they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me. I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”

Though Biden has finally come out of the basement, his deficiencies are becoming more obvious. On Monday, when speaking with black community leaders in Wilmington, Del., Biden suggested that a way to end police brutality against black Americans would be to train officers to “shoot [unarmed persons] in the leg instead of in the heart.” 

Of course, this comment had nothing to do with the death of George Floyd, who was literally choked to death — it was just another one of Biden’s sad attempts to appeal to minority voters, further proving his inability to understand complex issues and create real solutions, or, you know, pay attention. 

Biden has proven to be an ineffectual speaker and a lackluster leader. The only things going for him are his Barack Obama endorsement and his promise to select a female VP, though many are upset over his choices there as well. 

Maybe America should follow the lead of the 25 percent of voters in Lackawanna County and dump Biden this November.

    I believe that the only way you coutld vote for joe biden if you totally hated donald trump. I have watched his videos many times and it boggles my mind how confused he is and how disjointed his speaking is. I did watch the video of yesterday that he gave, I think somewhere is pennsylvania. In a million years he couldnt have written this speech. He constantly looked at the prompters so that he wouldnt flub anything. He said that he wasnt going to throw stones and then proceeded to trash trump for the balance of the time. This speech had nothing to do with caring about the death of George Floyd-it was only an election speech and not a very inspiring one at that. This man talked about all the wonderful things he was going to do for the blacks after he was elected. Just where has he been-he had 8 years with Obama in the white house where they did absolutely nothing for the black americans. and in all the years prior when he was in the senate the best thing he did was to feather his, his sons, his 2 brothers and his sister’s nests. He made them all tremendously rich. I think he might be in trouble in Ukraine where I believe an investigation into his and Hunters deeds are beginning. This is just a joke. Trump has done more for the american blacks in his three and a half years than Joe Biden did in 35 years. But—–he is a democrat and apparently no matter how weak you are, if you are a democrat thats all that matters-at least to the american media. Oh, what a mess the country would be in if joe biden ever were elected president. the 25th amendment would come to pass very soon after he was elected. of course joe had a very close relationship with
    china so he could send lots more jobs to china and wouldnt that be just so keen. oh, what a mess this country would be in and I suppose they would deserve it. Just think of how wonderfully effective joe biden would have been trying to look after this horrible pandemic-lol

    I agree with your sentiments exactly. All the Obama administration did was divide this country along race, religion, gender, public safety and political lines. Oh how I miss the days when everyone was allowed to have an opinion & you could speak your mind without being called a racist. Thank you for your great comments.
