It is just about over for Joe Biden.
The former Vice President under Barack Obama looked poised to cruise into the 2020 Democratic nomination without much of a struggle. Upon entering the race, Biden was considered the de facto frontrunner until just very recently, and boy, how he has stumbled.
Ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, Biden himself skipped town early, understanding what lie ahead for him in the Granite State.
“Sleepy” Joe instead touched down in the State of South Carolina, where he began campaigning among the black community, where he has traditionally garnered a great deal of support.
This was strategic, of course, particularly now that Biden’s most prominent rival on the moderate side of the Democratic Party is Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Indiana.
Buttigieg has been widely criticized by his stark lack of support from people of color. Team Biden understands this explicitly, and is likely looking to exploit this weakness in the southern states.
Juan Williams and Jesse Watters weighed in on former Vice President Joe Biden‘s dismal performance in New Hampshire’s primary, with Watters calling the candidate a “hot mess” and Williams saying South Carolina is a “must-win.”
“He’s got to do well there,” Williams said on “The Five,” before looking at Biden’s chances in Nevada. “I just I think he’s got to beat Bernie. And it’s going to be a tough one.”
Biden may very well be putting all of his eggs in the race basket as well.
“He can’t get a crowd,” Watters said of Biden. “He has no ground game, no fundraising. He looks terrible at the debates. And he got pummeled over impeachment and never even really fought back that hard. So he goes down to South Carolina and pivots to now a race-based campaign. It’s all about black and brown people.”
The struggle between Biden and Buttigieg may be all for naught, however, as radical leftist Bernie Sanders appears poised to simply run away with the race should the two moderates begin work to dismantle the other.
