On Tuesday, CNN’s Don Lemon suggested that the “silent majority” will elect Joe Biden in November.
This was during his nightly exchange with Chris Cuomo. Lemon pointed out that 2020 is not 2016 as he “pointed to Biden’s higher favorability than Hillary Clinton and the fact that President Trump now has a record to defend,” reported Fox News.
“People talk about the ‘silent majority,’ you say you don’t see the lawn signs or whatever, I think that people feel that they don’t have to put up lawn signs and do all of those things because the lawn signs is Trump out every day giving misinformation,” Lemon said to Cuomo.
“And when someone – after someone annoys you for a while… what’s the best way to handle it? You just ignore it… When you ignore people, that is the worst thing that you can do to anyone,” he added.
Lemon also said that he thinks people are “sick of us talking about Trump every single night, leading with him, it’s a bulk of our show. People are tired of it and they’re tired of his antics.”
The Silent Majority
According to Lemon, he believes there is a silent majority who will say, “You know what? I’m done.”
“And they’re not yelling and screaming, they’re not ripping their masks off, they’re not yelling at people to wear masks,” he said.
Cuomo said he understood what Lemon was saying. However, he said the “silent majority” has “turned into the concern of whether or not the majority gets silenced through all of these suppression efforts with the ballots.”
Lemon responded by saying he “wasn’t saying” that Trump or Biden will win, but he emphasized that “this isn’t 2016.”
