Former Vice President Joe Biden’s troubles are continuing and after a disastrous month capped off by a debate debacle, the frontrunner is rapidly losing ground.
According to a new poll, lunch bucket Joe’s numbers have dropped below 30 percent for the first time since he declared his candidacy and was all but crowned by the media as the presumptive nominee.
But things quickly began to fall apart for the geriatric human gaffe machine who just can’t stop tripping over his own tongue, looked lethargic and old during his campaign speeches and was quickly savaged for being a white man.
Eager to interject the race card into the equation, both Kamala Harris and Cory Booker pounced on a Biden comment during a fundraiser when he praised two pro-segregationist Democrat senators and good old Joe has been battling the perception that he is a racist ever since.
Not only has Biden fallen below 30 percent according to the Hill-HarrisX poll, but he has fallen a staggering 17 percent from the same poll taken in May.

Via The Hill, “Biden support slips below 30 percent in new poll”:
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s support in the latest Hill-HarrisX poll of Democratic voters has fallen below 30 percent, his lowest mark in the survey so far.
The poll, released on Monday, found that 29 percent of likely Democratic primary voters support Biden as their first choice for president, while 16 percent back Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
This marks a 4-point drop for Biden from an identical poll conducted two weeks ago and immediately following the first 2020 Democratic debates. It also represents a 17-point drop from when same poll was first conducted in May, a month after Biden formally launched his campaign bid.
Perhaps more alarming is that according to another recent poll – this one from Morning Consult – Biden’s dropoff has been particularly sharp among black voters which shows that Harris and Booker have been successful with their sleazy insinuations that the ex-veep just may be a racist.

A third poll by Reuters-Ipsos confirms that Biden is hemorrhaging support that key demographic.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the early front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, has lost support among African-Americans after taking heat on racial issues during the party’s first debate, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
The survey, conducted from Friday to Monday in the days following the debate in Miami, found 22 percent of adults who identify as Democrats or independents said they supported Biden, down 8 percentage points from a similar poll conducted earlier in June.
Support for Biden among blacks, a critical Democratic voting bloc, was cut in half, with about two out of 10 saying they backed President Barack Obama’s former vice president, compared with four out of 10 in the June poll.
African-Americans largely supported Biden when he entered the race for the right to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.
But they appeared to be looking elsewhere after Kamala Harris, a U.S. senator from California also seeking the presidency, criticized Biden for opposing mandatory busing to integrate schools in the 1970s and for his cooperation with segregationists while he was a young senator.
The idea that the self-anointed champion of the working class could be a racist after eight years as the vice president for the nation’s first black president is ridiculous but the media doesn’t provide that key bit of context.
In even worse news for Biden, despite being sent a friendship bracelet from his former second banana, the ex-POTUS and Dem kingmaker hasn’t uttered a peep in his defense.
Now that the Democrats have made it official that they are openly embracing anti-white racism after siding with the venomous quartet that is “the Squad” look for the hostility to be ratcheted up with fearmongering designed to get black voters to the polls next year.
Poor old Joe, when will he realize that the Democrats are no party for white men.
