This could be the end of the road for Joe Biden’s Presidential dreams.
His campaign is going down faster than the Titanic.
Joe Biden has given up for good. This is how he threw in the towel.
Joe Biden was in number one place the day that he jumped into the presidential race and he’s managed to stay there ever since.
His whole appeal is based off nostalgia for the Obama years and dislike for the radical candidates.
He’s hit huge problems, partly because of his age, poor performances on the campaign trail and now disastrous finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker and recently Andrew Yang have all dropped out of the race.
Their supporters no longer believe Biden is a “safe bet” to take on Donald Trump and are splitting up between Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Michael Bloomberg.
His 4th place finish in Iowa was embarrassing and he lost to both of them in New Hampshire, not even meeting the 15% threshold to get any of the delegates.
This isn’t made better by the fact that Joe Biden disappeared for a day following the Iowa caucus and left New Hampshire before the primary was even over.
If feels as if the 77-year-old former Vice President isn’t even trying anymore.
“Look, we got a lot of good friends here in New Hampshire, but this race ain’t over until you’ve got a significant portion of the electorate that haven’t voted yet,” he told reporters.
“We just talked to the folks down in South Carolina; they’re pretty excited. So, we are going there. Going to stop there probably on the way to Nevada,” he continued.
He’s still got a significant lead in South Carolina of 12.5 percentage points but that’s only a fraction of what his support was last summer.
Joe Biden does hold a huge advantage that the others don’t have, he can draw out the minority vote.
Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg both have trouble getting the African American community to support them, but if Joe Biden wants to be the Democrat nominee, he needs to widen his appeal.
That means he’ll have to run on his own merits. He’s not going to be able to grab the nomination because he was Obama’s Vice President.
But the problem for Joe Biden is that when people focus on him and his record, he doesn’t look very good.
He’s a career politician, who’s done nothing noteworthy, used government foreign aid in a way that benefitted his family and who sometimes gives incoherent remarks.
The only real advantage Democrats have with Biden is that he’s their best chance at beating Trump.
The Democrats were desperately hoping that they could find someone better than Joe Biden but they’re out of options.
