Joe Scarborough: Biden’s Super Tuesday Results Make Him ‘An Existential Threat’ to Trump
As results continue to pour in from Super Tuesday primaries, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough praised former Vice President Joe Biden’s success and suggested that yesterday’s voting patterns were bad news for President Donald Trump.
“Joe, right after he won South Carolina, Joe Biden said if you’ve ever been down and out, if you’ve ever been down and out this is the campaign for,” Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski said.
“For good reason,” Scarborough said. “Just one week ago Joe Biden was out of money. His organization was nonexistent. His support among his base, black voters, had dropped to single digits in most polls. His pathway was cluttered by one moderate after another.”
“These candidates standing between him and the nomination. And Joe Biden was roundly being mocked as a man who had never won a single primary contest despite the fact he’d been running for president since 1987. All of that changed in one night.”
“With Biden showing extraordinary strength from Texas to Massachusetts, from Alabama to Minnesota, and voter turnout in Virginia was so massive that by the end of that contest you could see a combination of suburban voters, fed up with Donald Trump, and black voters wanting to believe again that they created a wall of support that I believe this morning, and I think most people who know anything about politics believes, that combination now poses an existential threat to Donald Trump’s political future.”
