Joe Biden has gone into gaffe overdrive in recent weeks and lots of people have noticed.
Joe may even be talking about it to his staff based on this. During a recent appearance in New Hampshire, he reassured his supporters that he is “not nuts.”
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Biden: ‘I’m Not Going Nuts’
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told supporters in New Hampshire on Friday he was “not going nuts,” when he stumbled over the location of where he spoke at an event a few hours earlier.
“We are so close, so close to being able to do some incredible things for this country. Incredible things,” Biden said. “I just spoke at Dartmouth on health care at the medical school or not—I guess I wasn’t actually on the campus, but the people from the medical school—I want to be clear. I’m not going nuts and I’m not sure whether it was a medical school or where the hell I spoke, but it was on the campus.”
Biden’s quip about “not going nuts” comes amid a series of gaffes from the former vice president over the last couple months. Last week, Biden mistakenly claimed Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated in “the late 70s” when they were both killed in 1968.
In August, Biden referred to former British prime minister Theresa May as Margaret Thatcher. He also said, “Poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids.” After a pause he quickly added, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”

Biden’s gaffes seem to catching up to him. So are his competitors.
The Hill reports:
New poll shows Biden falling badly, three-way tie for Democratic lead
Joe Biden’s support in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination is slipping, according to a new survey from Monmouth University Poll that shows the former vice president dropping below 20 percent.
The survey showed Biden with support from 19 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters nationally, a double-digit decline from Monmouth’s most recent poll in June when he led the pack with 32 percent.
Now, the dynamics have changed, according to the Monmouth survey. Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the primary field’s top progressive candidates, are each at 20 percent, putting them in a statistical tie with Biden and indicating a tightening three-way race.
Watch out, Joe.
