🚨 POLL: Is Joe Biden Failing?
Hillary Clinton could possibly step into the position of Democratic nominee should Joe Biden fail.
According to The Hill, Establishment Democrats put forward Joe Biden because he was the “safe” candidate.
A recent poll shows that Joe Biden appears to be failing. An Emerson College poll showed 57 percent of likely voters think President Trump will win reelection in November. The Emerson Poll also shows Trump supporters 19 points more enthusiastic about their candidate than Biden supporters.
According to the poll, Bernie supporters are more open to voting for a third-party candidate rather than Joe Biden.
The Biden campaign’s tepid fundraising is a red flag, in comparison to Trump’s $187 million advantage.
On top of that, Joe Biden is in the midst of a sexual assault scandal, where his former staffer, Tara Reade came forward with claims of malfeasance.
It’s possible that Biden chooses Clinton as his running mate, and Clinton spent the last few months she has conducted endless interviews to ramp up her consideration.
More from The Hill:
Biden could choose Clinton as his running mate, and then step down before the election and allow Hillary to run in his place.
Clinton is the only VP candidate who would be able to pull off such a last-minute switch. She has the team, the resources and the experience to be the nominee; Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former Georgia state Rep. Stacey Abrams and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) do not.

Clinton is ready and eager. She is desperate to avenge her 2016 loss (which she still blames on Putin) and has pumped up her public profile to keep herself in consideration. In past months she has conducted endless interviews, promoted the uber-flattering four-part Hulu film about herself, made headlines by attacking Bernie Sanders and Mark Zuckerberg, and fired unending broadsides against President Trump.
Most recently, she joined Vice President Biden in a town hall devoted to women’s issues, during which she effusively endorsed her long-time colleague. She reminisced about their time together in the Obama administration, talked about their mutual love of Scranton, Pa., where her father grew up, and recalled meetings in the Situation Room.
In fact, Clinton talked so much about their shared history that it was easy to forget that she was endorsing Joe Biden. It almost sounded as though she were touting her own resume instead.
Hillary is hideously polarizing, but she would be a more forceful nominee than Biden, has enormous name recognition and, perhaps most important, can begin and end a sentence without major detours. And, she has not been credibly accused of sexual assault.
Hillary may be Democrats’ nominee of last resort. You know she wants it.
