Democrats need a united front

The circus will make its next stop in Phoenix, Arizona on March 15, 2020. This is not the normal show with trapeze acts or trained animals, but the circus that is the presidential primaries. 

Another Democratic primary is soon to take place and the left-wing party is still struggling to find the recipe needed to become united.

We all know the ultimate end game is to sweep the presidential elections but is the Democratic party willing to set aside their differences to defeat the common enemy? As a Democrat who has watched the debates, it is disheartening to see so much unrest within the Democratic party.

One thing the Republican party has down to a tee is loyalty. For this very reason, President Donald Trump has remained in office and will continue to preside over this nation for another four years, unless the Democratic Party clarifies the policies they are campaigning on.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is known for throwing the hardest punches at her opponents during the primaries. Some of her strongest jabs were her remarks towards the former New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg.

“[He is] a billionaire who calls women ‘fat broads’ and ‘horse-faced lesbians’,” said Warren. “And no, I am not talking about Donald Trump. I am talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”

Warren, as well as other candidates, have focused a lot of their time on making snide remarks that go viral in the media. The candidates seem to have lost touch with what the primaries are supposed to be about, and if they are not careful, they will lose another presidential election. 

FAMU student Aisha Cobbs said she is anticipating the debate that is coming up to see what punches the candidates will throw at each other.

“I had no idea how low the candidates would go during these debates,” Cobbs said. “It is honestly sad that they are not focusing on the real issues at hand.”

Cobbs hopes for a shift in the atmosphere when it comes to topics being discussed at the presidential primaries.

Hopefully, a change will come with former Vice President Joe Biden’s recent victory on Super Tuesday shaking up the doubts that the Democratic candidate would make it to the big race in November.

What does Biden’s Super Tuesday surge mean for Sen. Bernie Sanders? 

Well, to his supporters it means nothing. They refuse to stand behind Biden despite his sweep on Tuesday, March 3. 

Twitter user @imhere4politics is adamant that Biden should not be our 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.

The user tweeted: “We need to get behind the candidate that can WIN states like #Michigan, #Pennsylvania, #Wisconsin, and #Ohio and #Indiana. That candidate is NOT Biden.”

Everyone needs to set aside their personal feelings and get real when it comes to the nominee who has the best chance at getting into the oval office. Whether it be Biden or Sanders, only time will tell.

Now that the two are the only viable candidates who remain in the race of becoming the Democratic nominee for the 2020 presidential election, hopefully, we can sift through the madness and find the unity needed to win the big game.

The next Democratic primary will take place on Sunday, March 15.
