Joe Biden Just Doesn’t Win
Joe Biden is assumed to be one of the front runners for 2020. And he was a Vice President for 8 years. But that just doesn’t tell the whole story.
Joe Biden simply has never performed electorally very well outside of Delaware. When he ran for Vice President he ran on President Obama’s coat tails. He ran for President himself, on his own, 3 times, in 1984, 1988, and 2008. When he ran on his own he was barely an asterisk. His electoral performance was dismal, at best.
NH Democrats who want to win in 2020, and who also consider President Trump a very dangerous person, well, they might want to look for someone with a more likely chance to have a reasonable electoral performance.
Joe Biden is a really nice guy. And nice guys are rumored to finish last.
