Third-party candidate Cornel West is taking a large percentage of the left-wing vote for the 2024 election from Democrat President Joe Biden, the latest polling shows.
President Donald Trump is leading Biden in key swing states ahead of the critical presidential election.
But a new opinion poll shows West is also taking critical votes from Biden.
48 percent of swing state voters would back Trump while only 41 percent would back Biden.
This was before cocaine was discovered in the West Wing of the Biden White House, however.
But the real bad news for Biden is that Cornel West, a left-wing 3rd party candidate, has 3 percent of the vote.
In a race this close, that 3% will doom Biden.
And West is no friend to Biden and has come out swinging against the Democrat president.
As Slay News reported, West recently blasted Biden as “mediocre” and “milquetoast” before telling him to “get off the crack pipe.”
Appearing on KBLA’s Tavis Smiley podcast, West said he is not taking votes away from Biden which is a big fear for Democrats.
West argues that the votes were never Biden’s in the first place because he hasn’t earned them.
He said: “When somebody chooses to vote for you, you’re not pulling votes away.
“You see, Biden doesn’t own any votes.
“He’s got to earn it. He’s got to earn it.
“If the Democrats are putting out mediocre, milquetoast, neoliberal politicians who can’t say a mumbling word about militarism, can’t say a mumbling word about a serious response to poverty, can’t say a mumbling word about serious white supremacist practices — I mean, Biden himself said America is not a racist society.
“I said, ‘Get off the crack pipe.’
“If they produced a candidate that spoke to the needs of precious poor and working-class folk, they wouldn’t have me.
“They wouldn’t have to deal with that.
“They’ve got a corporate wing of the Democratic Party that does not treat the progressive wing right.
“It’s shown over and over again.
“You know, I supported Bernie twice.
“I supported Biden the last time.
“I did because I thought that Trump’s fascism was such that we had to fight.
“Does that mean that we’re choosing between a neo-fascist catastrophe and a neoliberal disaster?
“That every Democratic president can say, ‘I’m not almighty, but I am the alternative. You all have no other choice to vote for me.’
“And then when he gets in there, he wouldn’t be in there if it wasn’t for black folks, especially black women.”
