Beto continues to bomb, overshadowed by Biden, Bernie, and others

For democrats hoping to stand out in the crowded 2020 field, the time is nigh.

The twenty four candidates in the race mark a new record for modern American politics, and a number of challenges for the media, the American people, and for the would-be nominees themselves.

Joe Biden, the former Vice President and current frontrunner of the field, entered late into the fracas, garnering himself a large enough splash to essentially capsized most of the other campaigns involved.  Only Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Liz Warren, and maybe Pete Buttigieg remain truly hopeful of catching the longtime Washingtonian’s wake for a bump of their own.  The rest, to put it bluntly, are dead in the water.

This includes Texan Beto O’Rourke, whose entire campaign began with a proclamation that he was “born” to run for President.

Nowadays, Beto’s just happy if someone remembers he’s running at all.

Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman who nearly won a U.S. Senate seat last year in the reliably conservative state, is struggling in his White House bid and has lost support from young voters and minorities, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos national poll.

The public opinion poll released on Thursday shows support for O’Rourke among registered Democratic and independent voters slipped by 3 percentage points since a May survey to 3% overall.

During the same time, other leading Democratic presidential candidates saw their support increase. The poll found 31% of Democratic and independent voters would vote for former Vice President Joe Biden, 14% supported U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and 9% backed U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

The youthful Texan performed several skateboarding stunts during his 2018 campaign for the US Senate, drawing the admiration of the democratic youth.

Now, with the liberal focus for 2020 solely on beating Donald Trump, Beto’s spry antics no longer hold the weight they used to.
