Media loses hope after poll shows Biden trailing candidates


DANA PERINO. THIS IS THE FIVE. JOE BIDEN’S CAMPAIGN GETS OUT OF CONTROL AS DOUBTS CREEP IN ABOUT HIS ELECTABILITY PITCH TO VOTER VOTERS. SLIDING 13 POINTS IN A NEW POLL. THIS CAMPAIGN IS PUSHING BACK. IS THE DAMAGE ALREADY DONE? THE MEDIA IS STARTING TO DOUBT HIM. WATCH.>>I THINK THERE’S A SENSE THAT HE COULD FALTER AND THEN SOMEONE ELSE WOULD HAVE TO RISE.>>IF I WERE IN THE BIDEN CAMP, I WOULD BE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE FACT THAT RIGHT NOW, HE’S HOLDING HIS OWN IN THE TOP THREE AGAINST A WHOLE BUNCH OF OTHER PEOPLE.>>WE ARE USED TO SEEING HIM NOT DO TOO WELL UNDER FOLKS UNDER 50.>>Dana: I WOULD IMAGINE THAT THE BIDEN FOLKS SAY THAT HE STILL HAS THIS COMMANDING LEAD.>>Juan: RIGHT NOW, I THINK HE’S UP PLUS SEVEN. I THINK THIS IS REASSURING FOR BIDEN’S TEAM. BUT ALSO, IT’S INTERESTING TO ME, THE QUESTION ABOUT YOUNG VOTERS AND BLACK VOTERS. YOUNG VOTERS, REALLY DEAD, AS YOU JUST SAW THERE IN THAT LITTLE GRAPHICS, I MEAN, THEY’RE JUST NOT EXCITED ABOUT JOE BIDEN. I THINK WHEN WE TALK ABOUT CROWD SIZE WITH ELIZABETH WARREN, EVEN BERNIE SANDERS, YOU DON’T SEE IT, AND I THINK YOU DON’T EVEN LEVEL A PASSION. IT’S MORE LIKE, YEAH, I’M SETTLING FOR HIM, BECAUSE I THINK HE CAN BEAT TRUMP. THE SECOND PART OF THIS, THOUGH, AS BLACK VOTERS. BLACK VOTERS ARE THE KEY.>>Dana: AND ELIZABETH WARREN HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO –>>Juan: ELIZABETH WARREN IS, I THINK 15%. PETE BUTTIGIEG HAS A TERRIBLE TIME WITH US TOO. ESPECIALLY LOOKING TOWARD SOUTH CAROLINA. IT HAS NOW SUSTAINED BIDEN.>>Dana: GREG, ONE THING ABOUT THESE POLLS IS THAT BECAUSE THE MEDIA LIKES TO HAVE A FIGHT, IS THERE ANYTHING THAT SHOWS THAT THERE IS SOME MOVEMENT, IT’S AMPLIFIED.>>Greg: YEAH, AND I THINK THAT IS WHY JOE IS OUT OF THIS RACE. I AM A PART OF THE MEDIA. IT’S A SELF-FULFILLING PROPHECY. IT GETS EVERYBODY THING HE THAT THE POSSIBILITY IS THERE. NOW YOU HAVE A BERNIE, JOE, AND LIZ WARREN THREE WAY, WHICH IS LIKE A SEQUEL TO COCOON 2. EXTRA LOUD AND CRANKY. I MEAN, IT IS. IT’S GETTING UP THERE. I GO BACK TO MY THEORY THAT YOU STOLE FROM ME LAST WEEK. BIDEN NEEDS TO GET TO A NUMBER THAT’S LARGER THAN BERNIE AND LIZ COMBINED BEFORE BERNIE OR LIZ DROPS OUT. BECAUSE, WHEN ONE DROPS OUT, THE OTHER ABSORBS THE OTHER LIKE A STRANGE DEMON. THEY ONLY BECOME POWERFUL IF THEY ARE TOGETHER. HE’S GOT TO GET THAT PLURALITY ABOVE 40.>>Dana: WHAT ABOUT ELIZABETH WARREN? SHE’S GOT ALL THESE BIG CROWDS. HE’S BEEN NICE TO HER SO FAR.>>THAT WILL END AT ONE POINT. THERE WILL BE A MOMENT OF TIME BY WHICH THEY HESITATED AS TO WHO THEY GO TO. BUT IT WILL BE ELIZABETH WARREN LONG BEFORE JOE BIDEN. IT AFFIRMS A SENSE THAT PEOPLE HAVE THAT JOE BIDEN CONFIRMED FOR EVERYBODY, WHEN HE SAT IN FRONT OF A TINY CROWD AND SAID, YOU KNOW, YOU MAY NOT LIKE HIM, BUT I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO HOLD YOUR NOSE AND VOTE FOR HIM. HE WASN’T EVEN TALKING TO THE PRESS AT THE BEGINNING OF HIS CANDIDACY. I SHOULD HAVE RUN IN 2016, BUT IT WAS HILLARY TIME, SO I GUESS I’M GOING TO RUN NOW. I’M RUNNING UNDER THE OBAMA LEGACY, WHICH THE PARTY NO LONGER WANTS.>>Dana: THERE ARE A COUPLE MORE PEOPLE THAT ARE RUNNING. I THINK THAT WE HAVE THIS TAPE THAT WE CAN PLAY FOR YOU. THIS IS, REMEMBER, BETO O’ROURKE, HE STILL IN THE RACE. LET’S EAT. DO WE HAVE IT HERE? THEY WANT ME TO READ IT. BETO O’ROURKE THOUGH, HE HAS BEEN MARKED FOR THIS. IT WAS ABOUT COOKING BURGERS. I THINK THAT PEOPLE HAVE A LOT TO SAY ABOUT IT. WATCH. OKAY, SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?>>Greg: I DID WHEN THE CHAMPIONSHIP. FIRST OF ALL, WHERE’S THE GRILL? SECOND OF ALL, YOU PUT IT ON THE ENGLISH MUFFIN?>>Dana: I KIND OF LIKE THAT, THOUGH. HAVE YOU EVER EATEN A HAMBURGER ON A ENGLISH MUFFIN?>>YEAH. ONLY AT BREAKFAST TIME.>>Dana: HE WAS GETTING IN A WORKOUT. EMILY, WILL HAVE YOUR COMMENT ON THIS. HE’S GOT TO HIT THE GYM.>>Emily: YEAH, I FOUND THAT PAINFUL TO WATCH. I’M NOT GOING TO LIE. CAN I MAKE A COUPLE COMMENTS? IT WAS A LITTLE AWKWARD FOR ME. IF I COULD MAKE A COUPLE COMMENTS JUST ON THE BIDEN THING. I THINK THAT IT’S BECOMING QUITE CLEAR THAT HE IS THE START OR NOMINEE. HE IS WHO EVERYONE CAME OUT OF THE GATE SUPPORTING WHILE THEY FIGURED OUT WHICH CANDIDATE RESONATED WITH THEM. REGARDLESS OF THE, THERE IS A TREND. A REAL CLEAR POLITICS TREND. IT’S CLEARLY DECREASING. INTERESTINGLY, THE HEAD OF THE INSTITUTE FOR POLE AND CAME OUT AND SAID, LOOK, YES, I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS LATEST POLL SHOWS THAT HE STILL HAD IN IOWA. BUT, I DIDN’T MEET ONE BIDEN VOTER WHO WAS EXCITED ABOUT VOTING FOR BIDEN.>>Dana: THERE IS EXCITEMENT AROUND BILL de BLASIO. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE SOME TAPING OF HIM?>>Greg: NO. I DO NOT LIKE HIM. THUS THE PHENOMENON WHERE A ROBOT OR A HUMANOID CREATURE RESEMBLES A RESEMBLANCE TO A REAL HUMAN. ROBOTS WHO DON’T LOOK HUMAN FREAK US. THAT’S WHAT BETO IS. HE’S ALMOST, BUT NOT QUITE HUMAN, BECAUSE HE KEEP DELMONT KEEPS TRYING TO MIMIC THE BEHAVIORS OF HUMANS. HE’S A HUMANOID ROBOT. TRUMP IS THE BEST AT IT.>>Juan: WHAT HAS BETO DONE BEFORE CUSTOMER CHANGED A TIRE. WE ALL KNOW THAT SOCIAL MEDIA DRIVES POLITICS.>>Greg: TRUMP IS THE MASTER.>>Dana: THIS IS SOCIAL MEDIA. THIS IS AN ACTUAL INTERVIEW FROM BILL de BLASIO. WATCH THIS.>>YOU WERE ELECTED TO BE PRESIDENT, YOU WOULD BE THE TALLEST PRESIDENT EVER. ABRAHAM LINCOLN CURRENTLY HOLDS THAT TITLE. HE WAS 6’4″. YOUR 6’5″.>>I THINK THREE TIMES ONLY. THERE’S ONLY THREE EXCEPTIONS IN THE HISTORY OF THE REPUBLIC. IF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF DONALD TRUMP, WHO IS THE TALLEST CANDIDATE?>> SPEAK ALL RIGHT.>>Greg: ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT. EVERY PRESIDENT BUT ONE HAS BEEN WHITE. SO, YOU SHOULD HAVE A WHITE PRESIDENT, BECAUSE EVERY PRESIDENT HAS ONE EXCEPT FOR ONE, WHO IS WHITE. THAT’S HOW WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT HEIGHT AS HIM IN THE FUTURE. 14 YEARS AGO, THERE ARE GOING TO PLAY THIS VIDEO AND SAY, “MY GOD, THAT’S ALL THEY TALKED ABOUT SHORT PEOPLE?” YOU HAVE HEIGHT PRIVILEGE.>>Juan: IS THAT RIGHT? LET ME JUST SAY, HOW COME YOU DON’T PICK ON TRUMP?>>Greg: THAT’S GREAT. HE’S NOT DRUNKEN. BILL de BLASIO WAS JOKING. I DON’T BELIEVE THAT BETO O’ROURKE ACTUALLY LIKES
