Democrats are worried Joe Biden made a catastrophic mistake.
In the final weeks of the campaign, the focus of voters’ attention is shifting to Joe Biden and that is bad news for the left.
The 2020 election turned on this challenge Mike Pence made to Joe Biden.
At the vice-presidential debate, Mike Pence challenged Kamala Harris and Joe Biden to take a position on Democrats’ demands to pack the Supreme Court with up to six new liberal justices in retaliation for Senate Republicans confirming Amy Coney Barrett to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat before the election.
Harris dodged the question.
Pence and the Trump campaign continued to hammer Joe Biden over the court-packing issue and at a campaign stop in Nevada, reporters asked Biden if he would declare his position on the Democrats’ court-packing scheme.
Biden responded that voters did not deserve to know the answer to if he supported packing the Supreme Court until after the election.
In an interview with Breitbart during a campaign swing through Florida, Vice President Mike Pence hammered Biden for asking the American people to elect him President while hiding his true intentions as to if he would destroy the institution of the Supreme Court once he got into office.
“It is outrageous that a candidate for the highest office in the land won’t tell the American people what he’s going to do with the highest court in the land,” Vice President Pence told Breitbart in an exclusive interview.
Pence continued blasting Biden and Harris by pointing out that their refusal to answer the question means they support court-packing.
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have got to come clean. They’ve got to tell the American people whether they’re going to pack the court. Honestly, the way I saw Kamala Harris respond in our debate, the way that I saw Joe Biden duck the question in the presidential debate—for them to now say, ‘You’ll know my opinion after the election’ and we ‘don’t deserve to know’ tells me all I need to know. That is Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and the Democrats are going to pack the court if they take the Senate. But we’re not going to let it happen. We’re going to re-elect Donald Trump for four more years in the White House.”
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris hide their support for court-packing because stacking the Supreme Court with additional justices is very unpopular.
One recent poll found that just one-third of Americans supported this dangerous scheme.
If Biden let the American people know his true intentions on court-packing then the election would shift into a choice election from a referendum.
And Joe Biden cannot win a choice election.
