Dem Congressman: ‘Trump is Going to Win’ And Democracy Will Be Fine

Democratic Congressman Jared Golden criticized his panicking colleagues in an op-ed Tuesday, accusing them of fearmongering in the wake of President Joe Biden’s feeble debate performance. While Golden says he will not support Donald Trump in the election, he admitted Biden did a “poor” job at last week’s debate and that a second Trump term is likely imminent. Still, he said the outcome did not “rattle” him, calling Democrats’ fears about the end of U.S. democracy overblown.

“[T]he outcome of this election has been clear to me for months: While I don’t plan to vote for him, Donald Trump is going to win. And I’m OK with that,” Rep. Golden of Maine wrote in the Bangor Daily News.

“There are winners and losers in every election. Democrats’ post-debate hand-wringing is based on the idea that a Trump victory is not just a political loss, but a unique threat to our democracy. I reject the premise. Unlike Biden and many others, I refuse to participate in a campaign to scare voters with the idea that Trump will end our democratic system.” ~ Rep. Jared Golden

Golden noted that this week’s Independence Day will mark the country’s 248th birthday. “In that time, American democracy has withstood civil war, world wars, acts of terrorism and technological and societal changes that would make the Founders’ head spin,” he said, explaining why he did not share his colleagues’ fears.

Golden is the latest elected Democrat to come forward since last week’s debate and express a loss of confidence in the Biden Campaign. On Tuesday, one of his colleagues in the U.S. House, Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), called on the Biden to be replaced on the ticket. Lacking Golden’s measured response, Doggett stoked fears of an “authoritarian takeover” by Trump should Democrats continue to run Biden.

“President Biden has continued to run substantially behind Democratic senators in key states and in most polls has trailed Donald Trump. I had hoped that the debate would provide some momentum to change that. It did not,” Doggett wrote in a statement.

“I represent the heart of a congressional district once represented by Lyndon Johnson. Under very different circumstances, he made the painful decision to withdraw. President Biden should do the same,” ~ Rep. Lloyd Doggett

Doggett’s remarks were later cited by former Obama cabinet official Julian Castro. In an interview with MSNBC on Tuesday, Castro called on a “stronger” candidate to replace Biden on the ticket. “I actually don’t see a path now for President Biden to stay in this race in the long term,” he said. Castro, the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, previously ran against Biden in the 2020 primary.

“I believe there are stronger options out there for Democrats. We have a stable of folks that I think could do a better job, including Vice President Harris, who today in a poll was within two points of Donald Trump, whereas President Biden was six points behind Donald Trump.”

Since Biden’s widely-criticized performance, national polls have swung in favor of Trump. In a poll published by CNN this week, Trump was found to lead Biden by six points, at 49 percent compared to 43 percent.
