Election 2020

Joe Biden Appears to Indicate He’s Running in 2020

Senior Democratic aide suggested the former president has his eye on a bid for the White House — 'I'm giving it a shot,' he said

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is in trouble.

If reports are true, Joe Biden — the former senator and vice president — will be joining the 2020 Democratic presidential race and that all but ends the run of Bernie Sanders.

Biden is more charismatic and emotional than Sanders, who, in this writer’s view at least, is just mean and angry.

A report released the other day claimed that 50 percent of young people polled said they wanted socialism — but they haven’t heard Biden speak.

Neither man can beat President Donald Trump in the general election, but Biden will make it a lot closer than Sanders would.

Years ago, when Biden ran for president, he couldn’t poll higher than two percent milk.

But after spending eight years in the White House, he might have some bonafides to reach 35 to 40 percent in a general election.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will run for president in 2020, a senior Democratic lawmaker told The Hill on Tuesday, a move that will shake up the crowded Democratic primary field and make him the clear frontrunner for his party’s nomination against President Trump.

“I’m giving it a shot,” Biden said matter-of-factly during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker within the past week — a conversation the congressman recounted to The Hill and interpreted as a sure sign that Biden will run in 2020.

In the brief phone call, the former vice president asked if he could bounce some campaign strategy ideas off the lawmaker and invited the lawmaker to sit down with him in person in the near future.

Biden also said he hoped to have the lawmaker’s support, something the lawmaker did not commit to.

Biden responded that there was no harm if they keep talking, according to the lawmaker who spoke to The Hill on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the phone conversation. (source: The Hill)
