The platform on which Biden is elected, by the standards of modern liberal discourse, can be called quite moderate. The former vice president did not take the most radical ideas of the Democrats like abolishing the police and the migration service, the Green New Deal, or creating state medicine in the United States.
Instead, Biden only promises to move toward green energy, return the old Obamacare system, reform criminal law and raise the minimum wage from 7.25 to $15 per hour.
By and large, the Biden program is a return to the good old days of the Obama era, when there was no Trump. Although Biden at the same time borrowed some items on the agenda of Trump вЂ” in particular, to give a promise to purchase only American goods.
Moreover, in drawing up the program, Biden's team was also assisted by members of the left-wing of the Democratic Party like his former rival Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Alexandria Okazio Cortes. But they were not able to greatly influence the consensus inside BidenвЂ™s headquarters, which states: no radicalism.
To a certain extent, this position can be called winning. Indeed, to be elected on an ultra platform, which Sanders and Okazio Cortes wanted, is obviously more difficult than going to the polls with a left-centered agenda.
However, Biden continues to be haunted by serious misfortune: he does not cause any enthusiasm among voters. Only a quarter of the electorate is very enthusiastic about his figure. Biden is the most uninteresting presidential candidate since another Democrat, Adlai Stevenson, who lost twice to Dwight Eisenhower.
One of the ways to become interesting for voters is to present a bright election program. But Biden here went down the beaten track, promising everyone only a third term for Obama. But the Democrats are no longer interested in this: they want to move further along the path of building socialism, and not return to the time five years ago.
