In any presidential election, support from multiple coalitions of voters is imperative. Contrary to certain beliefs, primary elections and general elections greatly vary.
In the latter, it’s not enough just to have a strong backing from one’s own party; bringing in independent voters, swing voters, and even some voters from the opposing side of the aisle matters. This is what President Trump did in 2016.

As the 2020 presidential election plays out, some Americans are wondering about whether Biden will manage to bring over moderate Republicans to his side. The former vice president already has the support of NeverTrump groups, such as The Lincoln Project; however, Biden’s campaign seems to think this is only the beginning.
Yesterday, Jill Biden, wife to Joe Biden, made the case that her husband will win over GOP voters this election, documents Breitbart News.

Why Does Biden’s Team Expect Republicans to Support Him?

During an interview with The View yesterday, Jill Biden made some very interesting comments.
She maintains that during her time on the campaign trails, Republicans have approached her and vowed to support the former vice president. Jill Biden also stated that these alleged Republicans told her that they’ll vote for her husband “because he’s a moderate.”

Then, the former second lady also insisted that GOP voters have referred to her husband as a “steady leader” that they believe in. After this point arrived Biden’s claims that Republicans who support President Trump are “disillusioned” and disappointed with his response to coronavirus and the economy.

Where Do Republicans Stand in 2020?

President Trump has consistently maintained record-high approval ratings from the GOP. Republican voters remain overwhelmingly in support of the president; the minority of anti-Trump conservatives out there are likely the ones branding Joe Biden as a “steady leader” they can’t wait to vote for.

Republicans continue to criticize Joe Biden and point out perceived flaws in his mental health and cognitive abilities. Conservatives with this outlook maintain that Biden isn’t up to the job of running a campaign or a nation; furthermore, conservative voters have stated that Biden won’t be able to handle himself in a debate against President Trump.
Objectively, there are no signs indicating that Republicans en masse will line up to vote for Joe Biden in 2020.
