While covering the fourth and final night of the Democratic National Convention, MSNBC anchor Joy Reid declared that former Vice President Joe Biden appealed to white working-class voters in his DNC speech because "he is a white, working-class voter."
“This night, the whole presentation of it I think was directed directly at white working-class voters, which is what he’s not supposed to be able to win," Reid said, "I think that Joe Biden, he learned a very smart lesson from South Carolina. There was a temptation for a moment that after South Carolina Joe Biden could develop the theory that he is the candidate that can deliver Black voters because that’s what happened in South Carolina, but he’s clearly learned that he brought on a running mate who can expand his coalition and energize the Obama coalition, but that his superpower is who he is."
She continued, "He is a white, working-class voter. He is the thing that Donald Trump pretended to be in 2016, the regular Joe. He’s literally called joey throughout all of these videos by his family members. He’s joey. He’s a guy, you know. He is a white, working-class voter. And he came right for Donald Trump’s base tonight.”
“And he’s not theoretically not supposed to be able to win it, but I’m not so sure he can’t draw even a smidgen of it. He need as small number of a percentage of firemen and guys who, as they say, shower after work instead of before work. He just needs a tiny percentage of those to flip side, and he is relentless in being determined that he can," added Reid.
