Maybe not the sitting president, but are we pretending "At least it's not Hillary!" didn't put Trump over the edge?Look, not being actually better but just being less shit than the current sitting president has gotten exactly no one elected ever. Why both parties keep trying that tactic is fucking insane.
Which is why Trump's team wants to stage several debates with Biden. Everytime Biden opens his mouth, he says something stupid and off-putting to people who aren't his base and it's on the news for days. When Trump does it, it's Trump being Trump and no one fucking cares anymore.So far, Biden's campaign strategy "just stay hidden and let Trump campaign against himself" seems to be working just fine. Every time Biden is in the news, his numbers drop. The more he's just "not Trump", the more people like him.
It'd make him look weak. Also, I remember when trump was the one scared to debate. Luckily for him we have the one democratic candidate who can't string two sentences together.If Biden was smart, he'd just say no, fuck off with debates. When questioned just respond with "You can't debate with someone who always lies" and move on.
