Former Vice President Joe Biden did the right thing to skip the California Democratic convention over the weekend, according to pollster Frank Luntz, Fox News informed.
Luntz stated that the current 2020 Democratic front-runner was wise and did not show up at the San Francisco event Saturday, and he should hold off on voicing contrast until the debates.
“If I were advising him, I would have told him to skip this,” the pollster claimed. “The senator – the vice president – does not want to be compared to his opponents until he gets on the debate stage.”
Luntz charged Biden’s wide lead lends itself to the candidate not wanting to be compared with any other competitor.
“His goal is, you don’t want to be side-by-side with them. You don’t want to be compared to them. You only want to do it when it matters,” he claimed. “So, actually, I think it was a good strategy to skip California.”
Host Laura Ingraham stated that part of the candidates that appeared at the event criticized Biden’s absence.
“There is a debate among presidential candidates who have spoken to you here in this room and those who have chosen for whatever reason not to be in this room,” Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said.
Some democratic hopefuls used their time to speak about their campaign platform.
Californian senator Kamala Harris used the convention to emphasize the fight ahead.
“It’s a fight for who we are as a people,” she said. “It’s a fight for the highest ideals or our nation. And Democrats, with this president, it’s a fight for truth itself.”
