Joe Biden in the final stages of preparing for a 2020 presidential bid
"Former Vice President Joe Biden is in the final stages of preparing for a 2020 presidential campaign that is expected to launch next month, according to multiple people familiar with his planning.
A formal kickoff is expected by mid-April and would all but cement the size and scope of the Democratic presidential field that currently stands at 12 formally declared candidates, two still in the formal exploratory stage and others still mulling a bid but waiting to see what the former veep might do."
My comment: He's just about the only Dem so far who has the ability to get major support from moderate to right of center Republicans/independents.
"He's just about the only Dem so far who has the ability to get major support from moderate to right of center Republicans/independents."
I agree. And the fact that he has carved out that moderate lane for himself (so far) gives him a large edge. He can win with plurality (much as Trump did to the establishment candidates) while all the lefties beat each other and get picked off one by one. Adding to that, his reputation is being from working class stock. He'll pick off Trump voters if he gets past the primary hurdle. His main negative is his age and being the candidate of the "establishment".
Biden, right now, is the most electable candidate the dems have to offer. He may very well be the most electable candidate in the country (either party). Do not mistake this for an endorsement <G>.
The election is a long way off.
