Bad News For Democrats – A ‘Never Biden’ Movement Is Growing On The Left

Democrats seem to be repeating the mistake of 2016.

Just as four years ago, they are disenfranchising far left supporters of Bernie Sanders, many of whom are already saying they will never vote for Joe Biden.

Democrats obviously hope these people will eventually come around but if history is any guide, many of them won’t.

A ‘Never Biden’ movement vows not to vote for Joe

On Tuesday night, Joe Biden’s campaign was celebrating his latest primary night triumph.

By Wednesday morning, #NeverBiden, #WriteinBernie and #DemExit2020 hashtags began trending on Twitter.

There’s no question it’s been a banner two weeks for Biden. But lurking in the background of his sudden ascension to all-but-presumptive nominee is evidence that at least some Bernie Sanders supporters might not migrate to him in November, weakening him in the general election.

The significance of the problem became apparent in the same string of primaries that put Biden on the cusp of the nomination.

In Michigan — a state critical to Democrats’ efforts to reclaim their general election footing in the Rust Belt — just 2 of 5 Sanders backers said they would vote Democratic in November, regardless of who became the nominee, according to exit polls. Four in five said they’d be dissatisfied with Biden as the Democratic standard-bearer.

Though it’s unclear how widespread or adamant the #NeverBiden contingent is — will they really stay home when the alternative is another four years of President Donald Trump? — the misgivings at least put the Biden campaign on notice that it has significant work to do to bring along Sanders’ base.

You can see examples of this all over Twitter:

This is going to be a big problem for Democrats in November.
