It's not just the cultural/social shit, Joe's advisers.

 

Your "nothing will fundamentally change" economic positions are also severely divorced from reality.

At this point, Biden is slowly turning into Franklin Sherman. He’s going to show up tonight without pants on.

That’ll be nothing compared to his opening statement: “As the first black female head of the KKK, allow me to say: AMERICA STINKS!”

Dems won 90% of the black vote. Black voters being 12% of the total votes in 2018. Is the winning strategy about targeting that 10% of the 12% you didn't win? If Dems win in 2020 it's because more white people voted blue. That's not to say Democrats can take their vote for granted, but winning requires more than that, a lot more.

Elizabeth Warren scores an endorsement from the Working Families Party.

 

Quote

On Monday, the Working Families Party, a grassroots political group, announced that it would back Warren in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. After a three-month decision process, Warren got 60 percent of WFP’s vote and Sanders garnered 35 percent. Half of those votes are determined by WFP leaders and the other half by its members.

 

This is a big deal for Warren: WFP has local branches and works closely with unions, activists, and organizations across the country. It has real connections and resources that will be valuable to the Massachusetts Democrat’s campaign.

 

Quote

WFP national director Maurice Mitchell emphasized that people are “lucky to have two strong progressive candidates leading in the race.” Mitchell continued, “Senator Warren and Senator Sanders have both shaped the ideological terrain on which this campaign is being waged. They have proven an effective team on debate stages and in the polls, and we hope that partnership continues. We’re proud to call both of them allies in the fight for a more just America.”

 

Quote

In an interview with the New York Times, Mitchell emphasized that making an endorsement decision right now isn’t just about Warren, Sanders, or whatever candidate the group is going to back — it’s also about organizing against the current frontrunner, Joe Biden. He’s encouraging other progressive groups to get off the sidelines, pick a candidate, and start pushing back against the former vice president as well.

 

It's drawn the ire of some Sanders supporters. On a related note earlier this year, there was some pushback to Sanders getting the DSA endorsement due to his stance on reparations. 

 

Quote

Earlier this year, Democratic Socialists of America endorsed Sanders. As with this scenario, the move was not without controversy: Some of DSA’s members had asked the group’s leadership to withhold its endorsement over the Vermont senator’s stance on reparations. (The independent Vermont senator has declined to back reparations for the descendants of the enslaved in the United States, arguing that broader anti-poverty programs will help address inequality and that it’s not clear what the term “reparations” means.) DSA’s members had already voted 76 percent to 24 percent to endorse Sanders, and the organization’s leaders went ahead.

John Kerry only had 10% support with black people until he won his first primary state. This seems to be the pattern. Even Obama was massively trailing Clinton with blacks until he proved he could win elections. I expect the same of Warren. If she can win Iowa or NH, expect her support to increase in the black community.
