Democrats in Las Vegas give brutal assessment of Joe Biden’s condition: ‘He reminded me of my mother five years before she passed away

Democratic voters in Las Vegas are still determined to vote for President Joe Biden, even though they are painfully aware of his mental decline.

Voters attending Vice President Kamala Harris’ rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Tuesday told DailyMail.com they are considering whether they would be okay with her replacing the 81-year-old Biden.

Many said they felt the choice was bipartisan in 2024 and that they would still vote for Biden if he ran for a nursing home, since that would mean they would not be voting for former President Donald Trump.

“He reminded me of my mother for five years before she passed,” Kat, 67, said when asked about Biden’s disastrous debate performance. “She passed away at the end of September and he reminded me of her for about five years before she passed. He’s on that downward trend, you know?”

Harris took to the campaign trail this week as Biden’s team attempts to contain the damage done by the car crash debate between the president and Donald Trump.

“He reminded me of my mother five years before she passed away,” Kat (pictured left), 67, told DailyMail.com when asked about Biden’s disastrous debate performance. “He’s on that downward trend, you know?”

‘We all knew how old he was when he arrived here – and the presidency makes most people age very, very quickly. So it’s not surprising that he slowed down a bit,’ consultant Vivienne Bailey-Reid, 61, told DailyMail.com.

“I think she could run the country in the unfortunate event that he had to step down for whatever reason,” she added.

Many voters claim that they are voting for the Democratic agenda rather than just looking at the man leading the pack. While they also believe that it is “too late” for Biden to drop out of the race, they see Harris as the only natural choice to take his place.

“I think it’s too late,” said 68-year-old retired minister Mark Lukens.

He added: ‘We’ll support whoever they come up with. But right now I think I’d go with Joe Biden if he was doing it over the phone from a nursing home.’

The vice president’s first stop of campaign week was in Las Vegas on Tuesday, where she met with members of the U.S. Olympic basketball team before delivering a speech at the launch of the group Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders for Biden.

On Wednesday, she will be the keynote speaker at a student union event in Dallas, Texas, before traveling to the swing state of North Carolina for a campaign rally in Greensboro.

During her speech in Vegas, Harris indicated she supports Biden, but she did not directly address calls to put her at the head of the Democratic nomination slate in November.

Retired minister Mark Lukens, 68, said: 'We'll support whoever they come up with. But at the moment I think I'd go with Joe Biden if he could do it over the phone from a care home.'

“We always knew this election was going to be tough — and the last few days have reminded us that running for president of the United States is never easy,” Harris said in defense of the incumbent. “But the one thing we know about our President, Joe Biden, is that he is a fighter.”

“And he’s the first one to say that if you get knocked down, you have to get back up. We all know – many of us know what that is. So we’re going to keep fighting and we’re going to keep organizing and in November we’re going to win.”

Peter, a 51-year-old bellhop at the Palazzo Hotel on the Vegas Strip, told DailyMail.com: ‘I’ll crawl through glass to vote for him.

“I love Joe Biden and the administration and I hate the clown — the other guy. I don’t like him,” he said of the perceived binary choice in November. “A lot of my friends say, ‘Oh, you’re just voting for Joe Biden because you hate Trump.’ But two things can be true at the same time.”

Laura Langford, 62, said after the debate that Biden should have “stepped aside and let the next generation come in.”
