Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Sandra Smith, Kurtz said that although Biden is now the likely nominee for the Democratic Party, the problem is that Biden is “running a virtual campaign from his basement in Delaware.”
‘The problem is, if Joe Biden trying to cater to Bernie and his movement moves too far left, it’s a poison pill for November that could kill his candidacy,” he mused.
“This is where the coronavirus dominating the news…really hurts Biden because President Trump has this huge megaphone right now [at] the daily coronavirus briefings,” he explained.
“And, the only silver lining I see for Biden is [that] this may be a much shorter campaign because it’s just going to be blotted out by the virus for months to come,” Kurtz stated.
“Maybe for a guy who [has] committed a lot of gaffes and missteps during the primary – although he won, beat all these other Democrats – maybe that works to his advantage in the end,” he concluded.
