Ex-Vice President Joe Biden launches 2020 presidential campaign

Charlottesville officials not commenting on Biden’s possible plans

Critics say his standing in polls is largely a function of name recognition for the former United States senator from DE, whose more than four decades in public service includes eight years as President Barack Obama's No. 2 in the White House.

That division was the theme of Biden's campaign launch video, which cited Trump's declaration that there were "very fine people" among the white supremacists whose 2017 march in Charlottesville, Virginia, resulted in the death of a protester.

Tell us what you think!

It's not a surprise.

Biden, 76, had been wrestling for months over whether to run. He's also been known to invade the personal space of women at public events.

The latest University of New Hampshire poll has Biden as the second most preferred Democratic candidate in that state, garnering support from 18 percent of likely Democratic primary voters.

This is viewer supported news.

No pressure, Democrats! If you screw this up, we get "grab her by the p***y" for FOUR MORE YEARS...

David Schultz: Actually, we can reverse this here. Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren; Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke; and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

The Republican Party wasted no time seeking to undercut Biden's record, releasing a video on Wednesday questioning economic growth under Obama and Biden while resurrecting conservative arguments against Obama's health care law and a failed investment in green energy company Solyndra. I think the real issue is going to be for the Democrats is how they narrow a field of twenty candidates and rally behind one person and one narrative.

The Democratic Party is more diverse in 2019 than it was in 2016. So, right now, again, I put Trump as the slight favourite, but the Democrats have to figure out how to unify around somebody and a message to be able to beat him.

That tension was already evident Thursday morning in a statement from the progressive group Justice Democrats opposing Biden's nomination. In your view, who has the main ground here?

The Delaware native was long thought to be priming up for a presidential run this cycle, but several things had been dogging his potential campaign - not least of which is his age.

Sanders began his reply by accusing the Trump administration of discriminatory "demagoguery" before touting plans for comprehensive immigration reform, universal health care through Medicare for All, and raising the minimum wage to "15 bucks an hour". If Hillary Clinton was the cookie-cutter career politician, Joe Biden is the gaffe-prone but gregarious career politician.

Since the big Mueller Report reveal, the reaction from both political parties has been infuriatingly predictable: The GOP continues to lie and ignore the report, while the Dems reliably tip-toe along with slow, deliberate caution as Trump continues to violate every presidential norm and commit what could be lasting harm.

Biden enjoys a lead over all of these candidates, and, according to one Politico poll, over Trump himself, by a margin of eight points. He appeals to the same white working class type of people that Donald Trump appealed to back three years ago and which he still has a strong grip on.

"I can not be satisfied by simply saying I'm sorry for what happened to you", she told the paper.

"Joe Biden is loved in the party but even that pales in comparison to Obama", a former major Obama fundraiser said.
