Democrats don’t like dissenting opinions.
Going even slightly off message is forbidden.
And Joe Biden just said one thing that could get him kicked out of his party.
Is Joe Biden The Future Of The Democrat Party?
It’s no surprise that Joe Biden has huge aspirations.
Being Obama’s former Vice President he is one of the leading voices in the party.
But even with that, he can’t get close to a majority of support.
The first polling for the 2020 election shows Biden leading the pack.
But he still only has just over 30 percent support.
So he still has a long way to go before truly being the leader of his party.
He has to compete with a field full of younger, more progressive challengers.
While Biden is far from being a conservative, he is far from being the most liberal on the field.
For one thing, he has a much stricter record on immigration than most Democrats.
He voted for the 2002 bill paving the way for the creation of ICE.
And he supported many of former President George W. Bush’s border security measures.
But this may not be the biggest problem for him going into 2020.
Biden On Impeaching Trump
Democrats are loudly calling for the impeachment of President Trump.
It is one of the driving issues going into the midterm elections.
They are hoping to take back the House so they can push for impeachment.
But as it turns out, Biden isn’t on board with that.
Talking to CBS, he said that “I hope they don’t” impeach Trump if Democrats take back the House.”
“I don’t think there’s a basis for doing that right now,” Biden said.
Biden instead believes Democrats should focus on more important issues.
But he does believe that his position could change depending on Robert Mueller’s report on Russia collusion.
If the report uncovers something worth impeaching him, he doesn’t think it should be off the table.
But considering that Mueller has been silent for recent weeks, that is unlikely.
While this statement is reasonable to most Americans, it is blasphemy to many on the left.
They are dead-set on their goal to impeach President Trump.
So Biden’s statement will likely come back to bite him in a Democratic primary.
And if they get even more radical than they are, it could dismiss him from a future in the party altogether.
Will Democrats Impeach Trump?
Whether Democrats will be able to impeach Trump is unknown.
The last few years have shown that anything is possible.
But their first step to doing that is taking back the House.
From there, Democrats will latch onto every piece of Trump’s dirty laundry through investigations.
And from there they will push for impeachment.
Veteran political operative Roger Stone predicts they will use the same tactics used against Justice Kavanaugh.
Since running for president, dozens of women have claimed Trump sexually assaulted them.
Democrats may use those claims the same way they used the ones against Kavanaugh.
Stone believes the Kavanaugh hearings were a “dress rehearsal” for the impeachment investigation.
Do you think Democrats will try to impeach President Trump if they take back the House?
