Maybe they want him to pick . . . the best person for the job.
Or someone who can finish his sentences.
No, I don’t mean someone with whom he is so Sympatico that they finish each other’s sentences. I mean someone who can help him finish his sentences.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Despite calls that Joe Biden pick a woman of color as his running mate, most Americans don’t agree or are unsure and only 51% of blacks said the Democrat should select an African American, according to a new 2020 survey.
In the poll taken right after Minnesota Sen. Amy Kloubuchar withdrew from consideration and called on Biden to pick a woman of color, the latest Economist/YouGov survey found that only 32% support picking a black, 21% don’t, and 47% were “not sure.”
And, said the poll, just 51% of black Americans said “Yes” to the question, “Do you think Joe Biden should select an African-American person to be the Democratic Party nominee for vice president?”
Even among partisans, only 50% of “liberals” said yes to picking a black vice presidential nominee.
In a question about picking a woman, Americans are split as 39% agreed, 20% said “No,” and 41% were not sure.
