Is Pete Buttigieg going to be the Democratic nominee?
“The longest-serving African American man on the South Bend, Ind., Common Council is endorsing Joe Biden for president, a rejection of Pete Buttigieg that highlights the South Bend mayor’s struggles with black voters.
Councilman Oliver Davis told POLITICO that while it’s nice to see someone representing Indiana in the Democratic presidential primary and bringing national attention to South Bend, Biden is more experienced. …
But Davis also scolded Buttigieg, saying the mayor’s woes attracting support from communities of color “is not a new problem for him.”
“For us, this has been a consistent issue that has not gone away,” Davis said.
Asked if Buttigieg could win a general election, given his current low levels of support from people of color in the Democratic presidential primary, Davis said: “I doubt it. I sincerely doubt it.”
But Buttigieg, who is polling at 0 percent with black voters in Quinnipiac’s latest South Carolina survey, didn’t have to answer for some of his campaign’s recent racial miscues, such as the revelation that some South Carolina black leaders were surprised to see themselves named as supporters of Buttigieg and his Douglass Plan for black America. “
No, it has been obvious throughout the campaign that he has virtually no black support, especially in South Bend, IN. Even if he became the Democratic nominee, he would lose to Trump because he would depress black vote in the Rust Belt even more than Hillary Clinton.
Butt-mentum is a manifestation of wine track voters in Iowa and New Hampshire and isn’t reflected in the national polls because those lily White states are full of college educated Yankee progressives who are his base. There is no way a candidate who is polling at 0 percent of the black vote in South Carolina a little over two months out from the start of voting in the 2020 primaries is going to become the Democratic nominee for president.
Note: After Mayor Pete implodes in South Carolina, his voters will go to Warren. It will likely come down to a Biden vs. Warren race.
