Joe Biden promised Sunday night that he would “transform” the American if the president-elect while Donald Trump’s attacks on the alleged Democratic candidate continue to fall.
“We are going to beat Donald Trump. And when we do, we will not just rebuild this nation – we will transform it, ”said the former vice president.
Trump’s 2016 slogan, “Make America Great Again,” has made fans nostalgic for America’s “glory days,” while Biden’s new message is to make the country something it has never done. never been before.
It also suggests that the nation has been demolished as Black Lives Matter protests continue to rock the nation and that the coronavirus pandemic is in full swing.
The president’s efforts to demolish his challenger have proven ineffective.
Google Trends data analyzed by Axios in a Sunday report shows that Trump’s mockery of Biden’s “Sleepy Joe” doesn’t generate nearly the same kind of buzz that his nicknames generated in 2016 – like “Crooked Hillary” Clinton or “Little Marco” Rubio.
Joe Biden vowed Sunday evening to “transform” the United States if he became president rather than “rebuild”
Donald Trump’s efforts to bring down his opponent with the nickname “Sleepy Joe” were much less successful, according to Google Trends, than in 2016 when he nicknamed Hillary Clinton as “Crooked Hillary”
Google Trends shows that “Crooked Hillary” (red) increased much more in the 2016 cycle than “Sleepy Joe” (blue) in this cycle
“Crooked Hillary” was a winning nickname for Trump as it became a frequently searched topic last spring of 2016, with 100 being the most searched topic
In the spring of 2020, however, “Sleepy Biden” only hit 10 times on the 0-100 scale
The Google Trends index uses a scale from 0 to 100, where 100 represents the most searches.
In June 2016, “Crooked Hillary” recorded the highest number of visits to the search engine site, while from April to the end of June this year, “Sleepy Biden” hovered around the 10-point mark.
Internet users are more concerned about the recently increased coronavirus pandemic than defiling the Democratic presidential candidate.
Trump’s efforts to turn away from the virus have been unsuccessful, as “coronavirus” is still much more sought after than “statues”, “police” and “Antifa” as the president has caused outrage on these issues.
Polls show that Trump has slipped, particularly among some key demographics, such as among uneducated white voters, and in the battlefield states, another win was needed.
Even some internal polls have not been optimistic, with aides, advisers and allies warning the president that he could lose to the former vice president in November.
Trump has denounced the polls, saying that even his former favorite network, Fox News, touted the “fake” numbers.
Biden’s tweet on Sunday suggests that he is moving more towards a radical agenda, even if he continues to appeal to established and more moderate Democrats.
He turned down calls for protesters to fund the police following the death of George Floyd and the height of tension between the black community and law enforcement.
Biden has played with several campaign slogans, but the one on his official website is, “Our best days are yet to come” – another nod to America in need of repair.
Trump is also struggling to find his place in this electoral cycle after collecting such a clear and resounding message for his base in 2016.
Biden has been much more careful as he returns to the campaign trail, hosting events with socially distanced journalists
The president often questioned his rallies for a new slogan “Keep America Great”, which seemed to be a success before the coronavirus crisis and the Black Lives Matter riots and protests ensued across the country.
He also tried “Promises made, promises kept” at times.
More recently, Trump has taken a more attenuated approach, testing on Twitter, “Transition to greatness,” as he begins to adopt a build and recover approach as in 2016.
Biden, who won enough delegates to become an official candidate last month, was much more in line with concerns about coronaviruses than the president.
He wore a mask when he ventured in public, which the President has not yet done, and he often talks about the threat of the virus.
To date, more than 2.8 million people in the United States have been infected with COVID-19 and almost 130,000 people have died from the virus.
Trump lambasted Biden for not holding a press conference for months while he went on a largely virtual campaign for months, engaging in interviews from his makeshift basement studio.
Biden recently joined the trail by traveling a handful of times – including the funeral of George Floyd in Texas.
