An Ohio-based tea party activist remains skeptical that Joe Biden will ultimately be the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party.
Much has been made about the continued problems former Vice President Joe Biden has had trying to formulate coherent sentences during his limited campaign appearances. A Zogby poll in mid-June showed that 55% of Americans surveyed believe the presumptive Democratic nominee has some type of medical impairment like dementia.
In addition, a number of Democrats have expressed their concerns about Biden being able to effectively debate President Donald Trump next month. As recently as 10 days ago, some Democrats were floating the name of John Kerry as a Biden replacement:
"As to switching out Biden for Kerry, it is relatively easy," says a report in The Sun. "The best time to do so would be right after the Democratic convention. After Biden accepts the nomination, he could then be talked into retiring from the campaign.
"At that point, the members of the Democratic National Committee would then name his replacement. Once named, Kerry would then keep the vice-presidential selection made by Biden … and hit the (virtual) campaign trail."
Tom Zawistowski is executive director of the We the People Convention.
"I still believe that Joe Biden is not going to be their nominee," he tells OneNewsNow. "I think it's becoming more and more clear that Joe Biden's illness is getting worse. Dementia's a horrible thing, and so I think Joe Biden is in serious trouble."
Zawistowski contends regardless who represents the Democratic Party, no one can defeat Trump. Still, he believes they will try to replace Biden with someone to lead the revolution.
"They're going to put someone up who's going to lose and then claim it's unfair and say [they] need to burn down this country," he offers. "They are doing it [now] in Portland and Seattle and New York and other cities. We are at war, and we need to fight it like it's a war.
"So I've got news for you: whether Trump wins or Trump loses, there's going to be fighting in the streets."
The Democrats' "virtual" nominating convention is next week (August 17-20).
