Democrats have supposedly been pushing for Biden to run in 2020, many believe that he would have a fair chance of beating Trump. Biden had originally expressed doubts about a 2020 presidential run.
But now he is claiming that his family and friends are in support of a 2020 presidential run. So we could be seeing more of creepy uncle Joe.
“From being pushed, prodded by my son Hunter, and my wife Jill, and my daughter, we just had a family meeting with all the grandkids too, and there is a consensus that they, the most important people in my life, want me to run,” Biden said.
Originally there were claims that Biden would be a shoo-in and some polls put him in the lead at 20%. At least 10 points ahead of most Dems. But now polls are not being as kind.
“Joe Biden’s big lead in early Democratic 2020 polling might be a bunch of malarkey.
While most polls show the former vice president hovering around 30 percent of the Democratic primary vote, well ahead of second-place Sen. Bernie Sanders, two recent surveys paint a starkly different picture — raising the question of whether Biden is a real front-runner or just has big name-recognition. Those polls show far more Democratic voters undecided about which candidate to support, and they pegged Biden’s backing at a much less intimidating 9 to 12 percent.”
A big part of Biden’s decisions concerned his past transgressions. Biden went through a messy divorce in 2017, was discharged from the Navy after testing positive for cocaine, and had an affair with his late brother’s widow. If that were not enough his niece was also found guilty of credit fraud and has assaulted a police officer.
But despite all that damning character evidence he is still thinking about pushing forward.
“I don’t want this to be a fool’s errand, and I want to make sure that if we do this, and we’re very close to making a decision, that I am fully prepared to do it,” he said.
Biden indicated that he was nearly ready to announce a decision.
“I have not made the final decision, but don’t be surprised,” he said.”
