A Republican Strategist Explains How And Where Joe Biden Can Beat Trump

Last updated on July 18th, 2023 at 11:25 am

Republican strategist Rick Tyler said that Democrats don’t need a fresh face. They need someone like Biden who rise about the Trump mud, unite people, and flip the Rust Belt.

Tyler said on MSNBC:

I hate to say this. I don’t want to sound cynical, but the Democrats don’t need a fresh face now. They need someone who can beat Donald Trump in a general election. This is not an open seat. This is a seat that’s occupied from someone who people didn’t consider formidable. Donald Trump will be formidable. As Biden said, Donald Trump will drag you in the mud that you cannot go lower than Donald Trump and you need someone who can unite people and rise above it and Joe can do that.

Joe’s a known quantity. He’s experienced. He’s been through this before. He’s not likely to make the kind of mistakes that Joe has made in the past. I think he ran in ’88, he ran long, long time ago. It’s really those rust belt states that need to come back for the Democrats. They need to get back in their column if they want to win the White House, and Joe Biden is the only candidate who has demonstrated that he can do that.


If Biden is the nominee, Pennsylvania is almost a lock to flip back to Democrats. If there is one thing that Pennsylvanians love, it is to support their own, and besides Dunder Mifflin, Joe Biden is the most famous Scranton byproduct in the world. Biden is a perfect fit for Wisconsin and Michigan. He also has already won statewide twice in Ohio.

Joe Biden appeals to those Rust Belt voters who flipped from Obama to Trump. All you have to do is spend five minutes talking to them, and they’ll tell you that they like Joe.

If Democrats want a fresh face, they can put someone like Sen. Kamala Harris in the VP slot.

Trump spends all of his time talking about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) because he doesn’t want to face Joe Biden.
