During the 2016 Presidential election between Hillary Clinton (D) and Donald Trump (R), polls indicated that Hillary Clinton would be the United States’ 45th president.
As it turns out, that wasn’t the case. And, since then, people are cautious on the results of polls.
Though she won’t be entering the race as it was previously rumored that she would, Clinton says that she has been warning the 2020 Democratic Presidential candidates that they should be careful moving forward because the election could be “stolen” from them.
In an event in Los Angeles for her “Evening With the Clintons” tour with President Bill Clinton, the former Secretary of State commented that “you can run the best election, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden knows a thing or two about running campaigns considering that this is his third try at the Presidency.
Though his 1988 and 2008 runs were unsuccessful, he did become President Barack Obama’s VP, and Biden is looking to make the case to the American people that his eight years in office have provided a good foundation for him to embark on another four years in the White House.
However, it will be difficult to convince the American people considering that President Trump was elected because of a dissatisfied electorate with the Obama administration.
In Arizona, a poll shows VP Biden leading President Trump by five points. Roger Stone, infamous political consultant, took to Instagram to discuss the results of the poll, saying that “any polls taken 18 months before an election are worthless and ALL polls taken recently give Biden a temporary boost based solely on heighten [sic] media coverage surrounding Biden’s announcement.”
In addition, the political figure noted that if you “let Joe talk,” “his numbers will slide as voter’s get turned off by his pomposity and high self regard.”
Stone then called for the need to “let voters learn about his role in the mass incarceration of millions of young Black men in his turbo/charging the racist war on drugs and the corruption surrounding he and his son and he will drop like a rock.”
