Democrats have the most unique strategy in presidential races: hide their candidate as long as possible.
And who could blame them?
Former head of the DNC admits this openly.
FOX News reports:
EXCLUSIVE: Top Joe Biden surrogate Terry McAuliffe told a videoconference meeting of Virginia Democrats over the weekend that the former vice president should remain in his basement — where he has famously campaigned remotely during the coronavirus pandemic — and that Democratic officials are broadly “preferring” that Biden stay out of the limelight.
Fox News has obtained a video of McAuliffe’s Norfolk comments, which came after Biden has made a series of gaffes in his already-limited public appearances as he social distanced from home — including by declaring that African-Americans who support President Trump “ain’t black.”
“People say all the time, ‘Oh, we got to get the vice president out of the basement,’” McAuliffe can be heard telling the “monthly breakfast” of the Norfolk City Democratic Committee. “He’s fine in the basement. Two people see him a day: his two body people. That’s it. Let Trump keep doing what Trump’s doing.”
Democrats should be careful what they wish for. Because what Trump keeps doing is working circles around the left. Trade problems? Trump solves them. Immigration problems? Trump solves them. Economic problems? You get the idea…
On the flip side, when you have a demented candidate, you MUST hide him. Not doing so allows Biden to do what Biden almost always does: put his foot in his mouth. Like Obama said, never underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up.
Of course @JoeBiden's team would prefer that he stays in the basement.
Every time he speaks, he reminds us that he's too confused to be president. https://t.co/bmc4Mk18cd

Unfortunately for the left, the convention forced Biden into open waters. And the sharks smelled the blood right away.
If there’s anything good about the Democrat National Convention this year, it’s the fact that the entire thing was a virtual event. I’d hate to know people spent their hard earned dollars on fights and hotels to see that fiasco in person.
Here’s the painful truth. As Zero Hedge reported,
In what can only be described as a media disaster, only 5.7 million people tuned in to the first night of the Democratic National Convention on the major broadcast networks, cutting the viewership from 2016 by more than half as the virtual event which many dubbed “as exciting as an infomercial”, proved a dud compared to the traditional live gathering.
According to Nielsen, from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern, Monday’s convention debut drew 2.1 million viewers on ABC, 1.9 million on NBC and 1.7 million on CBS. This is less than half the 11.6 million people who watched the first night of the event on those networks four years ago between 10 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., the website TV by the Numbers reported at the time. Cable ratings will be available later Tuesday.
Or as Kevin Jackson put it:
Democrats in 2020 drew only half the audience of the year Hillary Clinton got her ass kicked by Trump. Factor that into the equation as you ponder Trump’s chances for a repeat.
No wonder Democrats want to register illegals, dead people to vote, and demand mail-in ballots. Because they have no shot at beating Trump.
Place Your Bets!
Whether you’re taking it a Vegas bookie of some online gambling platform, you’d be smart to put your dollars behind the president. He isn’t ruffled by the daily polls. Instead, Trump continues to get things done, because that is how Trump energizes his base. He keeps promises.
According to Sports Betting Dime:
On Monday, the leading online sports-books listed Biden at odds of -144, on average, to win the Nov. 3rd Presidential election. Today, Biden’s betting line has faded to -138.
Republican incumbent Donald Trump continues to improve his chances of winning reelection. His odds moved considerably, from +116 to +104.
Equally worrisome to the Democrats should be a prop wager on which party will win the White House come Nov. 3rd. The Republicans made a significant gain from +125 to +107. Meanwhile, the Democrats slumped from-156 to -136.
Trump has made slow but steady gains in the betting odds for about a month now. His approval rating is also showing improvement. Currently, 42% of Americans approve of Trump, his best number since June. Biden’s average lead over Trump across nationals polls also slipped slightly, from 8.3% to 8%.
As of today, there are 83 days until the election. And the way it looks now, Biden needs to buckle up. Because it’s gonna be a bumpy ride for liberals. Of course, he could always head back to the basement.
