BIDEN: Hillary ‘never got chance’ to speak to white, middle class voters

A four-month general election — and the 12 months before that — wasn’t enough time to connect with white, middle-class voters, according to Joe Biden.

The vice president appeared on CNN on Sunday and faulted Hillary Clinton’s strategy and inability to connect and “respect” workers impacted by globalism.

He told Jake Tapper that he recognized the Democrats’ shift away from economic issues because, as he put it, “we got the car out of the ditch and onto the road and runnin’,” and therefore focused on other issues.

He said solutions to helping people who have been “left behind” wasn’t a “central part of the campaign going forward.”

“We’ve got to speak to those people,” Biden continued.

“Globalization has not been an asset to everybody, some people were left behind. There’s ways to deal with that but we never got a chance to speak to it in this election and I think we paid a price for it.”

Biden didn’t indicate who prevented Hillary Clinton from “speaking to it,” as Donald Trump clearly had plenty of time to do so.
