(PoliticalLookout.Com)- Joe Biden might be the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, but it doesn’t mean he’s the most popular guy in town. In fact, following a series of disastrous interviews and a thoroughly lacking campaign so far, it looks like the American people are far more interested in a polygamous libertarian who likes meth and tigers.
Between April 3 and 10, according to The Daily Caller, Joe Biden was searched less frequently on Google than Joe Exotic, the star of the new Netflix documentary “Tiger King.” The numbers are staggering and vary kind of wildly, but in Joe Exotic’s home state of Oklahoma, just 15% of all searches for both names were for Biden, and 85% for Exotic.
In Washington, D.C., the hub for politics in the United States, just 43% were searching for Biden and 57% searching for Joe Exotic. In D.C.!
“Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” is a Netflix documentary that aired on March 20, just in time for many countries to go into lockdown over the Chinese coronavirus. Combined with its wild story of owning large cats, and the erratic nature of private zoo operator Joe Exotic, the show has already gained a cult following.
Joe Exotic, real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, is also a convicted felon after being convicted on 17 charges of animal abuse in 2019. Exotic was even convicted of two counts of murder for hire, and plotting to kill documentary co-star Carole Baskin. The show focuses on the work by Baskin to shut down private zoos in the United States (despite owning one herself,) and the increasingly erratic behavior of Joe Exotic who wants her dead.
Yes, this is a true story.
The Daily Caller ran the numbers and it looks like this wild tale is already more popular than Joe Biden. On April 8, it looked like Biden had just beaten Exotic, but that was only because independent socialist Senator for Vermont, Bernie Sanders, announced he was leaving the presidential race. Even becoming the presumptive nominee for the Democrats wasn’t enough to stay on top, though, as Exotic once again started beating Biden in Google rankings.
In fairness, Exotic is even getting more searches than President Donald Trump – but then again, in the 2020 election, most people voting for Trump already know plenty about him. This is the time when the challenger should be engaging the people online!
Meanwhile, Biden is still at home, getting confused and forgetting his lines.
