Biden launched his strongest ‘election weapon’

Former President Barack Obama criticized his successor Donald Trump in his first live appearance at Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s campaign.

`Donald Trump will not suddenly stand up to protect all of us,` Obama said at a `car rally` event in Philadelphia, October 21.

At the same time, the former US president also warned Democrats to avoid complacency with the results of public opinion polls, even though surveys show that Mr. Biden is maintaining an advantage in Pennsylvania.

`I don’t care about surveys. There have been many polls in the past and it’s not effective,` Mr. Obama said.

The former president is considered an important representative of candidate Biden, when he gave a prime-time speech at the Democratic National Convention in August, appeared in fundraising campaign videos and called on supporters.

Obama’s way of organizing campaign events is also different from Trump’s.

Candidate Joe Biden did not participate in this event.

Before the live rally in Philadelphia, Mr. Obama urged his supporters to vote and avoid making fun of the country’s problems.

`We’re going to be a battleground state, and I think former President Obama’s visit reflects that,` said Cherelle Parker, majority leader of the Philadelphia City Council and local representative for her campaign.

Polling by POWER Interfaith, a progressive group based in Pennsylvania, this month found 72% of black male voters in Philadelphia under 50 and 91% of black voters over 50 supported Biden.

Former President Obama won Pennsylvania twice, partly thanks to the enthusiastic support of African-American voters.

However, David Nakamura, editor of the Washington Post, said that Obama’s appearance in Philadelphia was also a reminder that he could not help candidate Hillary Clinton win this state in 2016.

`If Obama can’t carry Pennsylvania for Hillary, I very much doubt he can do anything for Joe Biden,` said Charlie Gerow, a Republican political strategist in Pennsylvania.

But Obama said he never lost hope in Pennsylvania.
