56. I did not bracket them together as being all alike in the degree to which they are left leaning,

 

ideological, or share an ideology, but simply to illustrate that Republicansí answer to that question, does not tell us what democratic primary contender is most like a Republican. None of our candidates hold positions similar to, allied with, friendly to or in the interests of Republicans.

Your implication that Biden is like a Republican speaks to the spin you want to put on the results.

Biden is a life-long liberal. Period.

However, he has universal appeal across a wider range of the political spectrum and among a more widely diverse demographic than many widely known democrats. He may appeal more to moderate liberal leaning independents and disenchanted Republicans than other candidates.

You are trying to make a case where you canít and then waxing offended at a case I wasnít trying to make in throwing some more left leaning political figures together.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
