When Joe Biden announced his run for the 2020 presidency, he thought his run would be smooth sailing — and for the longest time the polls reflected that.
Biden’s numbers showed that establishment Democrats were falling in line.
But that suddenly changed last week when he was humiliated on stage at the first Democratic debate.
His momentum has taken major damage so badly, even CNN couldn’t hide the ugly truth.
Biden, who once had 32 percent of support among Democratic voters, has fallen a jaw dropping 10 points, down to 22 percent. The large gap he once enjoyed over his rivals has all-but disappeared.
On his heels is Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who did her part by demolishing Biden on national television.
For months the Democrats were waiting for Biden to announce his run and be the party’s so-called savior against President Donald Trump. But the charm that captivated liberals when he had Obama by his side… well, it’s gone.
And even his close political allies are having serious worries about whether or not he can get it back.
CNN’s Van Jones even admitted that seeing Biden slip was “heartbreaking.”
“Tonight we had a breakdown,” Jones said of Biden after the debates. “He had the most to lose and I think he lost it. He just couldn’t pull it together.”
It seems as those Biden’s days are numbered.
Behind the former vice president and Harris in the poll is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-M.A. with 15 percent of support.
Sen. Bernie Sanders is also close by at 14 percent.
Biden, who was the last major candidate to announce his run, lost the most of any Democratic candidate.
The next debates take place July 30 and 31.
