Step Aside Joe campaign responds to “disastrous” Biden debate performance

The Step Aside Joe campaign, sponsored by, released the following statement at the end of the Biden-Trump debate:


Joe Biden’s dreadful performance in the debate underscores his severe liabilities as a candidate. Biden is manifestly not up to the task of combating Trump’s lies, vitriol and neofascism — nor is he capable of articulating a coherent progressive vision capable of galvanizing voters this fall.   


There is still time before the party convention to decide on a different nominee for the party. Democratic leaders must finally heed the clear preference of Democratic voters and reconsider their backing of Biden’s candidacy. We need a swift intervention to make Biden voluntarily a one-term president so a Democratic nominee can be up to the job of defeating Trump. The stakes could not be higher for the future of the United States, and the world.
