  • Biden is known and respected by world leaders. That will go a long way in repairing the damage Trump has done to foreign relations.
    Biden has and can reach across the isle which makes for a more unified government. That will also him get on the fence Republican votes.
    Biden helped craft the ACA and policies that assisted in the recovery from the great recession. Experience we will need by election day.
    My question about Biden is who will he pick for V.P.?

  • CREEPY UNCLE JOE! He's molested more girls and women on camera than ANY OTHER POLITICIAN. He's certainly the Republican pick for the Dems 🙂

  • Biden is our best choice. He can capture blue collar Americans who voted for trump in the last election. He can also capture socialist Democrats. He is moderate, he is a man of family values, he is progressive, and fiscally responsible. Hes the man for the job. Please Bernie supporters dont give us another trump. Your loyalty is to your country and fellow Americans, not a candidate. Of all the Democrats its Joe biden who can reunite us. He's the man for the job. Just look at his life and record, and his admitted flaws. It's okay to be flawed as long as you grow.

    Also, does anyone consider the fact that he's concerned with announcing his bid because trump hits below the belt. Trump would literally mock the fact that bidens family died in a car crash and that his son died just a few years ago. So I understand why he may be holding back on this announcement

  • Watching all the trolls promoting Commie Bernie while Venezuela melts down into 'The Road Warrior' is just hilarious! HINT: AMERICA WILL NEVER BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY (even if it takes another civil war and a good housecleaning to make it so)

  • Biden will receive no Progressive votes because he represents the failures of the past that have driven us to our present political mess and climate change existential disaster. He does have his place: the woods, with the other neo-liberals, Obama and Clinton.

  • He’s too old! I’m not voting for Bernie so if he wins the nomination I’ll be crying on election night again.

  • Why doesn't he just raise money from small donors so he doesn't have a conflict of interest with corporate donors? OH WAIT BECAUSE HE CAN'T LOL

  • Joe Biden is at 27% just letting people think he "might" run and people are "forgetting about him?" Eye roll… Puleeze, the man knows exactly what he's doing.

  • Biden is a disaster. We don't need any more bridge-building, equivovating, foot-in-their-mouth centrists. We need a ball-busting socialist firebrand.

  • why are they so confounded about warren? bernie is running the same ideas but better, why would they want her?

  • I would say why Biden has not announced is because at the moment he is doing better as the guy who could run…
    This is a VERY different race then when Biden ran before.
    He will face questions like Medicare for all, rising taxes on the wealthy, reparations…and it will be very hard for him to side with popular sentiments.
    He wants to run a campaign where he says as little as possible… unfortunately… while that will work on few of the first states… there are a lot of debates this time.

  • Oh, will he be "forced" to rely on wealthy donors… like he has always relied upon? Really? LOL Just stay home, Joe. You had your day. Stay out of the cesspool and retire with dignity.

  • Unless Biden can raise money directly from voters, then he is doomed as just another Hillary. Democratic voters will NOT vote for a candidate funded by corporations, lobbyists, and wealthy donors. We obviously don't want or need another candidate like Hillary.

  • I don't think Joe Biden wants to run for office. He's had 2 years of retirement and he's probably enjoying that. He served all his life. Why go back into that political rat race?

  • Republican Morning Joke has NOTHING good to say about democrats. Morning Joke voted for and supported candidate donald trump. Morning Joke is just a 7/10 version of trump in ego and talking over his wife meeka. He can say all the crap about the president, he is still a republican and would still support his fellow swamp people all the way to the bank.

  • Perhaps Joe Biden will stand out as the clean, experienced, impassioned, honest choice! He is fair, even tempered, good humoured…..a very smart man that has proven over and over his dedication to our nation! On top of all that he is kind and decent and wants trump and the GOP that have. been involved to be protectors of trump’s crimes
    to be brought to justice!

  • The game has changed and moved past Biden. I love uncle Joe too, but even he knows his time has past. Or he'd be in by now. The best thing he can do now is back who he thinks is the best candidate. Or Bernie for the luls. Uncle Joe + grandpapi Bernie? That's too adorable to say no to. The fun uncle backing the raunchy grandpa could go far!

  • Joe Biden would be the worst candidate on the list. He won´t be president, ever. He will just obstruct innovation. He is old school and he might as well be a republican. He has no democratic views at all. Bernie Sanders is the best candidate, but maybe to old and the other candidates need to go a long way to promote themselves. Warren and Harris are very good candidates, but they will need a lot more promotion.

  • Why are we still debating this? If a candidate can’t raise enough money from small, individual contributions to be competitive they probably aren’t the strongest candidate. I know this is a relatively new concept in modern American politics but I feel like that should have been one of the biggest take aways from 2016…

  • This is ridiculous, unless Joe Biden actually confirms he’s running as a candidate don’t play lip service to him or include him in polls.

  • Bernie, AoC and others don't collect $2700 checks, they mainly collect ~$20 ones. Hundred thousands of 'em. Take the amount of work for raising campaign money $2700 at a time, multiply by 130X.

  • Uncle Joe is ahead in all the polls and he hasn’t even announced running. He will do what he has to do to get the 💵. Go for it Joe

  • There is no way I'd vote for this old anti-cannabis drug warrior! Many thousands of good people have served many years in prison for minor marijuana violations. I really hope the Democratic party embraces almost anyone else!

  • Biden as Hamlet holding up skull and pondering: "Should I or Shouldn't I"
    Audience: Left the building hours ago.

  • The people clearly want Bernie for POTUS. It is mind-boggling that the Democratic Party doesn't seem to be embracing him. I hope they wise-up real soon or I fear we may end up with more years of Trump!

  • Wow 😮 they don’t want to talk about Bernie. Biden who isn’t running and Warren who has 9% support. Are they afraid to talk about Bernie?

  • Biden getting ready with this excuses. He's too late because Bernie has already got the message out that Obama/Biden won their first election with huge majorities in House and Senate and looked towards Wall Street before it brought in Obama care. Biggest majorities in half a century and could have passed medicare for all. No Siree, he's a yesterday man, as in the song.

  • Senator Elizabeth Warren is "right" for the Presidential office in 2020. What's the problem? There are those who feel it will take a man to deal with Trump. All the "boys" have to remember who brought you up? Dad was too busy supporting the family. Who did Dad leave in charge while he was working supporting the family? If MOM can run the house, take care of arranging schedules, keep you in tow, balance the income, earn her keep as a nurse getting you through the flu season, caretaker of the home, in charge of assigning chores THAN WHY CAN'T THAT OR ANY OTHER WOMAN RUN A COUNTRY AND STAND UP TO A BAG OF WIND? WHEN TRUMP GETS "RATTY" she just has to put to him, "are you going to play nice?" Here is a great example. Look how Melania keeps him in check. Trump is a "big kid," and he, definitely in front of millions, cannot negatively confront Sen. Elizabeth Warren and get away with it in an upcoming debate. Well, what other excuses can you come up with to keep Senator Elizabeth Warren out of the Presidency? She is a no-nonsense legislator. Did any other legislator create the CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU?

  • They should mention that Biden dropped 6% since the last Iowa poll…and Sanders went up by 5%, almost completely closing the gap between them. It's very likely that Sanders will continue to go up while Biden will continue to drop.

  • Grandpa Biden should mind his grandchildren; he is a nice guy, but that is not enough for being a president. The fact that almost anyone in this world would be a better human being than the horrendous monster who now rules the US, is not a justification for someone aspiring to do it.

  • Remember when Elizabeth ran to Hillary even before Bernie was out of the race? Elizabeth Warren  talks like Bernie and walks like Hillary! All these years and all that preaching and when the heat is on,  she's standing with Hillary wagging her tail waiting for her treats. $$$

    Did you know? Over 26.3 million voters were
    locked out of tax payer-funded primaries in 2016 because they were not
    registered to vote with the Republican or Democratic Party?

  • We small donors out here only have so much money, yaknow. Bernie is beloved and Warren backed Hillary. That's why I'm torn. As much as I respect and admire her, if I have to choose between her and Bernie, I'll choose him over a first female president. Just like I chose a Black president over Hillary in 2008. Their policies are basically identical, but Bernie has SOMEthing that Warren just doesn'r.

  • Biden is already an establishment tool funded by millionaires and billionaires. I will vote for the only man I can trust, Bernie Sanders.

  • It's funny how the so called "liberal" media is failing to equate individual donors with the majority of Democrats who will be voting, and are expressing who we want to vote for..As we learned in 2016, polls aren't always accurate, a lesson the media refuses to learn

  • I don't believe for one minute that Biden is beating Bernie in popularity. I think these polls are being rigged by corporate entities because Biden is a corporate tool. Their pushing Biden just like they pushed Hillary on us. Bye bye Biden. We don't want the guy who helped Obama go from 2 wars to 7. We don't want the guy who stood by for 8 years while Obama didn't address the core financial and economic problems that caused the big crash of 2007. We don't want the guy who did nothing while the big banks were balled out while millions of homeowners were thrown out on the streets because of the blood sucking banks Obama saved. We don't want the guy who basically wrote the Patriot Act. We don't want the guy who didn't run in 2016 because of a backroom deal Obama made with Hillary. We don't want the guy who gave us Hillary and Trump.

  • For criminy sakes, the 2020 elections are 18 months off. . . Give it a rest! We already have wall to wall coverage of the elections. . . When they talk about The New Green Deal, they talk about what it means politically for each party, but not what it actually is. Try Googling it, all you get is political outcomes and no substance as to what it actually contains.

    This is not healthy for our democracy.

  • We donated to Bernie the day he announced. When Biden announces, we'll donate to Bernie again… when Beto announces, we'll donate to Bernie AGAIN… and so on every time a corporate candidate announces.

  • JOE, Shame on you.! STOP using the Democratic voters for your own interests. I'll never forget what you have said about the decent voters behind the scenes. Thankfully, They have learned and been educated more than you would think. STOP acting like a Democrat. YOU are simply a PROP of the wealthy.

  • Biden is a dinosaur with no chance. He's too old, not in his age, but in his thinking. Someone like him has no chance in the primary.

  • You said in a speech to the Delaware Democratic Party on Saturday night that you had the most progressive record of anybody running. I don't mind you running for President but DO NOT lie to decent voters. We've learned a lot more than you'd think. You have the most moderate record of anybody running. Yes, the wealthy Democratic voters will love you but keep in mind there are much more working people hating your fake affection for us working class.
