FEATURING NORMAN SOLOMON – Joe Biden continues to poll high in the 2020 Presidential race, but has dropped 7 points since he first announced his candidacy. Many have cast Biden as the most electable Democrat in a very crowded field, who would be capable of beating Trump. But the former Vice President has not shown himself capable of even releasing a policy platform without being accused of plagiarism. He has continued to inappropriately touch little girls even after being widely accused of invading the personal space of women and girls. And, he failed to show up to the recent California Democratic Party Convention that most other serious candidates attended. Is Joe Biden really the best hope of the Democratic Party?
