How a one-term pledge could sink Joe Biden

 

Joe Biden is ending 2019 in a pretty good place. His poll numbers are rising and his once-woeful fundraising has vastly improved. Why, then, are sources close to him reportedly telling Politico that Biden is considering a one-term presidency? In this episode of the Point, Chris Cillizza explains why a pledge to serve only a single term spells almost certain disaster for the former vice president's 2020 campaign. #CNN #News #Cillizza

  1. Hey, Chris here — would you vote for a candidate who said they would only serve for four years?

  2. He has no chance at a 2 term president

  3. So people would rather he lie about it, just to appease them?

    Joe’s already sunk, he just hasn’t realized it yet.

  10. Next we ask voters if Joe can feels those muffins

  11. Biden need to give it up because he’s not winning on my vote

  12. He wants 4 years of non stop powerful wet leg rubbing and hair sniffing of every little kids he can get his crept creepy hands on

  14. CNN doesn’t care about Biden liking children hopping on his lap and stroking his hairy anteater. To CNN that’s normal.

    He’s got onset dementia rambles about kids jumping on his lap, roaches wondering everywhere, and his family wants this for him, they’re sick honestly.
