Joe Biden’s campaign knows that everything will fall apart if they are not careful.
They can’t afford to let the former Vice President come in contact with the public.
Joe Biden made one desperate gamble to escape his worsening mental problems.
On the campaign trail, Biden’s exchanges with voters called into question Biden’s ability to handle the duties of President.
Biden was mostly fine when he stuck to his script, but the moment that interactions with voters forced him off the script, he started to flounder.
When a college student asked Biden why he performed so badly in the Iowa caucus, he responded by calling her a “lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
Biden physically pushed a former Iowa official, telling him to “go vote for someone else” after he was asked if he supports pipeline construction.
That kind of behavior doesn’t win Biden any votes and makes people question whether Biden should be put in charge of the most powerful military on the planet.
The coronavirus has been a godsend for Biden.
It pretty much stopped the Democrats’ nomination process and forced Bernie Sanders to admit defeat far earlier than he would have done otherwise.
It’s also allowed Biden to stay comfortably at home in his basement and hold limited interviews and press conferences and that isn’t going to change.
He’s already committed to stopping campaign events for the rest of the campaign.
“This is the most unusual campaign I think in modern history,” said Biden, who will turn 78 later this year.
“I’m going to follow the doc’s orders — not just for me but for the country — and that means that I am not going to be holding rallies,” said Biden.
Biden claimed that he would miss being on the campaign trail because of the people he would meet.
“We keep social distancing,” Biden said. “Everybody has masks on. Soon as I finish saying something, I put my mask back on… I have traveled, but when I do, I get in, make my case, and take questions and leave. But you know me: I’d much rather be out there with people because that’s where I get the greatest feel.”
He went on to say the internet format allowed him to connect with more people directly.
“They tell me 200 million people have watched what I have done from home and the half a dozen things we’ve gone out and done,” Biden said. “And so the irony is I think we’re probably communicating directly, in detail, with more people than we would have otherwise. But I’d much rather be doing it in-person.”
Joe Biden is definitely not communicating with more people directly since the coronavirus outbreak occurred, and that is one of the reasons he’s gone up in the polls.
