Biden campaign rebukes Trump effort to push for more debates

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign on Thursday rejected reported plans by President Trump’s reelection campaign to push for scheduling further presidential debates between the two.

Kate Bedingfield, the deputy campaign manager and communications director for the Biden campaign said that now that Trump is dipping in the polls, he wants to refocus attention on his campaign for additional debates. 

“Six months after announcing he did not want to debate, Donald Trump — now trailing in the polls — wants to change the subject from his failed leadership, and launch a ‘campaign’ for many debates. But there’s a catch: he’ll only do it if he can pick the moderators,” Bedingfield said in a statement.

Biden campaign's @kbeds declines the new Trump request for more debates, after he'd previously threatened not to attend any debates, saying Biden will abide by @debates rules. "We are not going to ride the roller coaster of the ever-changing Trump campaign position on debates."

Recent polling has shown that Biden is continuing to move up in the polls further ahead of Trump as the two move toward the November election. 

A Fox News poll released Thursday showed that Biden leads Trump by 12 points nationally. The newest poll comes as many Americans expressed concern about the way the president handled the protests demonstrating against the police killing of George Floyd. 

Bedingfield continued, saying that the former vice president's campaign would not "ride the roller coaster" of Trump's "ever-changing" position of debates, but rather, participate in the events that have already been officially scheduled.  

*******************************************

None of the polling matters until the first debates happen, as everyone will get to see how well Biden does after hiding all Summer in his basement. When Obama had his first debate with Romney he did horrible, and Romney took the lead in the polls. Only after panic mode and Romney faltering later did Obama come back and win the election.

You got everything wrong once again.  Big surprise.   Romney was doing horribly in the first debates.  Then he switched strategy.  When Obama said you are on record for saying this ... Romney simply lied and said 'no, I didn't'   Obama was gobsmacked and didn't know how to react.  He hadn't foreseen that Romney would simply come out and lie about everything.  So to most that is when Obama lost his first debate to Romney.  We all know he later recovered.

Of course Biden wants to have a say in who will moderate the debates.  They will have to put a lot of tough questions to Trump.  Kids in cages.  Self dealing with Russia, Ukraine. Health care.  DACA.  The environment.   It is no wonder that Trump didn't want to debate anyone.  Now he has no choice.  He is floundering.

Trump will just lie every time out of the gate so what's the point anyway?  He's classic now.  He lies about saying things that are on tape or in print.

Who are you going to believe?  Me or you own eyes and ears?

Biden has not proven to be a particularly effective debater but he improved in his later debate performances. Expectations for Joe on the debate floor will probably be pretty low which will clearly be to Biden's advantage. Joe will have to be ready to call out Trump on his lies which means he will have to call him out constantly.

Joe has to make the big contrast between himself and Trump, his empathy for people vs Trump's lack of empathy, Joe the uniter of the country vs Trump the divider, etc..

But how much real impact will these debates have anyway? Clinton arguably won all three of the debates in 2016 (though, if memory serves me correctly, one of them was close). Yet Comey undid her 11 days before election day. Comey had a far bigger impact on the election than did the debates. Something else big, another October (ie Comey) surprise could play a far bigger role in the election outcome than anything the two candidates say to one another on the debate floor.
