Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show,” asked one of the fundamental questions that remain after the 2020 presidential election: How is it possible that Joe Biden, a lifelong politician who makes Hillary Clinton seem charming, receives the most votes in U.S. presidential election history?
This is not to say that many Americans could have been turned off by President Trump’s bombast and personality…that happens every four years with elected officials. But Biden, who had an embarrassing showing Iowa during the state’s caucuses, somehow corrected his ship from the cozy confines of his Delaware basement with the occasional hard-hitting interview with people like Cardi B.
“Joe Biden got 80 million votes. Oh my God. I can’t tell you how much this is a shock to those of us who believe that our fellow Americans have the basic ability to discern to recognize that your Biden is a loser,” Sexton said.
Sexton called Biden a “deeply unimpressive Democrat-machine politician” who has never done anything worthwhile for anyone” during his life in public office. One cannot even look to Sen. Kamala Harris, his running mate, for inspiration. FiveThirtyEight.com reported in October 2019, national polls showed her trailing essentially every single candidate, including Pete Buttigieg (which is no easy task).
The website wrote, “Harris positioned herself as a left-but-not-that-left, establishment-friendly figure. But that may not be a great profile and today’s Democratic Party, which has grown increasingly liberal.”
Sexton also pointed out that Patrick Basham, the pollster, highlighted observations that showed Biden underperformed Clinton in every single major metro area except where it mattered: Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia.
Sexton pointed out that Biden managed to somehow secure the presidency even though he lost almost “every historic bellwether” county across the US. Sexton said that for the past 40 years, it has been a given that if you carry these counties, you become president.
“Joe Biden was able to break that trend, that’s amazing,” Sexton said. “Joe Biden must be the greatest politician in the history of the Republic. I mean how could he pull this off? How was he able to do this? He so amazing. I guess we just don’t see it. Hmm, or there’s something else going on here.”
