Democratic Megadonors Pressure Biden to Drop Out

Democratic megadonors are reportedly pressuring Joe Biden to drop out of the presidential race, according to a recent report. The news comes after Biden's poor showing during an ABC News interview, which was intended to calm the nerves of those uneasy about his reelection campaign. However, polling expert Nate Silver claimed that the interview did more harm than good.

Silver, who has joined the growing chorus of Democratic voices calling for Biden to step down, said that the president's interview was "incoherent" and included a "non-sequitur" complaint about a New York Times poll. Biden incorrectly claimed that the poll had him down 10 points before the debate, when in fact it was actually 3 or 4 points.

The New York Times editorial board had previously published a statement last month suggesting that Biden should bow out of the presidential race. The newspaper's plea came after Biden's lackluster debate performance against former President Donald Trump in late June.

Other well-known Democratic voices, such as comedian Bill Maher, have also echoed the call for Biden to step down. Maher said that Biden did not even show up to his own debate, adding that "Trump told lie after lie. He never would have gotten away with that if Joe Biden was there."

Silver had written a morning column about Biden's campaign, but he said he "wimped out" and deleted a line that urged the president to begin transitioning the presidency to Vice President Kamala Harris. However, following the ABC interview, Silver reiterated that it was time for Democrats to find another candidate to run against Trump.

Despite the subpar interview with ABC, Biden claimed that the reason for such a poor showing was that he was both ill and exhausted. However, it remains to be seen whether Biden will heed the calls of his own party to step down and allow another candidate to take his place.

In the meantime, the Democratic Party is facing a crisis of confidence in its own leadership. With Biden's approval ratings continuing to plummet, it is clear that the party needs to find a new standard-bearer who can inspire confidence and enthusiasm among voters. Whether that person will be Harris or someone else remains to be seen.
