Bill Maher Admits Biden's 'Pandering' Isn't Working - What He Says Spells Big Trouble for Joe

Bill Maher thinks that Biden shouldn't have run; that he should have stepped aside. He's still suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. But he hasn't been shy about expressing his concerns about Biden's campaign and how he thinks he's going to lose. 


On Friday, he listed more reasons as to why he thought Biden's campaign was heading for failure — that he's losing the people who are supposed to be in his camp to pocketbook issues.

"People seem to be saying we care about the pocketbook issues," Maher said during a panel discussion on Friday. "This is across the lines of race, of gender. Everybody seems to be saying the same thing. It's inflation. It's pocketbook issues. It's things like that, that hit us every day, in our everyday lives. And you guys are talking about Ukraine, and Gaza, and Israel and democracy. I really think democracy is on the line. It just doesn't seem to connect with the people."

"I mean, I could go through the stats here of the people he's losing. It's a little scary because he's losing the people who are supposed to be the ones in the Democratic camp," he exclaimed. 

Maher called out Biden for pandering but said it wasn't working because he was losing all those people he needed. That he lost 14 points with Hispanics going from 59 percent in 2020 to 45 percent now, according to Maher.

"He went to Morehouse. He said, ‘What is democracy if you have to be 10 times better than anyone else to get a fair shot?' That seemed like pandering to me. Black voters under 50. He led by 80 points in 2020. Now, by 37. Still a lot, but he's lost 43 points off the key constituency!" Maher said. 

"Student loans. He's forgiven $144 billion in student loans. Only 36% of student debt holders like it! I mean, if you can't win the people you're pandering to," Maher continued. "I mean, I get it. Politics is somewhat about pandering. That's not even an insult. You're supposed to do what people want to a certain degree, also be a leader. But if you're not winning these groups, and he's lost 8% off women since 2020. “And yet I read in the polls he pulled ahead this week. Explain that to me.”

Trump is still ahead, according to the RCP average, although the polls still have the race tight. I think Maher's referring to the Fox poll this week that had Biden ahead. But yes, with all that movement away from Biden, you would think that the numbers may be worse for Biden than what the polls are showing. 

Maher also made the obvious point that seems to fly right over the head of most Democratic politicians like Biden. They don't seem to see "Latinos as Americans" who care about the border too, he said, noting Trump has a 23-point edge with Latinos on the issue of border security. 


That's "kind of racist," he observed. Indeed. 

But that's the Democrats who just see people as "groups" to pander to or to try to control. Biden doesn't know how to deal with people as Americans and not as "groups," that's why there's a different background/origin story that he has for every "group" as opposed to just making things better for Americans.
