Joe Biden gave an interview to Univision Orlando Tuesday. He’s in Florida to try and shore up support from Hispanic voters, given that he is losing their vote to President Trump if current polling is correct. He is also tied with Trump to win the state in general. Team Biden has pressed the panic button.
While the Biden surrogates will say that Biden can win the Electoral College in the November election with or without Florida, and that’s true, he is not going to passively hand it over to Trump. He wants to win the state as much as any presidential candidate does. For some reason, Biden thought it was a good idea to compare President Trump to Castro and this will likely backfire on him.
The problem with Team Biden is that they think voters are stupid or possess really short memories. Democrats notoriously take for granted whole blocks of voters but this doesn’t necessarily work when it’s Hispanic voters. In Florida, for example, Cuban-Americans vote more conservatively than, say, Mexican-Americans in Texas. The younger generation of Cuban-Americans has been trending more liberal than their parents and grandparents. In other words, Hispanic voters are not monolithic. Apparently, Biden thought making the Castro reference was clever.
“Trump has more in common with Castro than with Churchill,” Biden said, adding, “Look who he admires. He admires Putin, he admires Xi, he admires everyone who behaves in an authoritarian way. I am the exact opposite. I have faith in the democratic system.”
Sure, the democratic system in America has allowed good old Joe to pursue a career in politics that lasted his entire adult life and he has lived off American taxpayers for almost 50 years. He owns three homes and travels by private jet with armed guards while trashing Republicans for not believing in the hysteria of global climate change and calls for gun control. It’s good to be Joe. Now he wants another bite at the apple and a return to the White House.
