Biden Campaign Crisis

STAY UP TO DATE AND FOLLOW US ON

This is the moment to choose a different path!

Biden was polling poorly before his debate. Now he’s even further behind, and his chances of making up the ground look worse and worse based on his performances.

We don’t need to resign ourselves to the absolute catastrophe of a second Trump term – and more and more respected Democratic leaders and institutions are joining this call.

*The below quotes are public statements, not endorsements of Pass the Torch.

The public agrees.

Nancy Pelosi

 “I think it's a legitimate question to say, is this an episode or is this a condition? When people ask that question, it's completely legitimate.”

– Nancy Pelosi, Former House Speaker
Julian Castron

“I believe that there are stronger options out there for Democrats. We have a stable of folks who could do a better job … It’s too risky to let Donald Trump walk into this in November.”

– Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro
Angie Craig

“I do not believe that the President can effectively campaign and win against Donald Trump.”

– Angie Craig, Minnesota Congresswoman

Pass the Torch, Joe

President Joe Biden has achieved great things. His administration led us out of the pandemic and has been rebuilding our economy, standing up to corporate greed, taking urgent climate action, and so much more – domestically, he is arguably the most accomplished progressive Democratic President in generations.

All of that – and much, much more – will be lost if Donald Trump takes back the presidency. Democrats need the strongest possible ticket to maximize our chances of winning in November. It has become very clear, based on both long term polling and the recent debate, that Democrats’ current ticket is not the strongest one we can put forward.

We have incredible talent in our party – including a vice president who made history once and could do it again, and governors who’ve proven their ability to win critical swing states. In 2020 Joe Biden committed to being a “transition” president. It is time for him to make good on that commitment, put his country first, and secure his legacy as the man who saved our democracy.

That’s why we, the undersigned, call on President Biden to step aside so the Democratic National Convention can select a new nominee.

But we’re not just making a demand. We are also making a commitment to do everything we can to support our new nominee. As Democratic donors, activists, volunteers, and elected leaders, we pledge to:

  • Unite behind the Democratic ticket. Some Democrats are concerned that Biden stepping aside will be divisive. But all we care about is defeating the existential threat to our democracy that is Donald Trump. We pledge to unify around the Democratic ticket, whoever that is.
  • Contribute to the new Democratic ticket. As donors and activists, we are concerned about investing in a campaign that cannot win. But we are committed to making our biggest contributions yet of both money and time to support a new Democratic ticket.

We simply cannot afford to lose this election. That is why we are pledging to do everything in our power to defeat Trump. President Biden must do the same. That means stepping down as nominee and passing the torch to a new generation of leaders. Trust our Party. We have what it takes to turn this around, together.
