Joe Biden is ahead in the polls and is likely the best hope Democrats have to retake the White House. I think he made a huge mistake this week. He had been under fire for his longstanding support of the Hyde Amendment. It limits the use of federal funds to pay for abortion. After defending his position, he suddenly changed his mind.
I believe it was a huge political mistake. There is a thundering herd of candidates on the extreme left. He is one of the few among the traditional liberal heart of the party. He should stake out that ground rather than chasing after the extreme. It makes him look inauthentic.
Donald Trump will go into the election with a united party and the advantages of incumbency. If a Democrat is going to win, he or she can’t make these kinds of mistakes.
