    If Joe Biden does run for president Opens a New Window. , it will be the culmination of two years of weighing the issue while meeting with donors, many of them Wall Street executives -- and nearly duking it out with one of them along the way.

    President Trump and former Vice President Biden are in a dead heat in a hypothetical 2020 matchup among Texas voters, according to a new poll from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling firm. According to the poll, Biden trails Trump 46 percent to 49 percent in the hypothetical matchup, falling within the poll's margin of error. Five percent of those polled said they were "not sure" who they would choose.

    McClatchy DC Bureau ^ | February 11, 2019 05:00 AM | Alex Roarty
    Joe Biden is everything a Democratic political consultant should love: He’s experienced, well-liked, and his poll numbers look great against Donald Trump. And yet many party strategists have a bleak assessment of his potential 2020 campaign: It’s a bad, bad idea. […] McClatchy interviewed 31 Democratic strategists — pollsters, opposition research experts, media consultants, ex-party officials, and communications specialists — from across the country about a potential Biden campaign. Nine agreed to speak on the record; all others quoted anonymously do not plan to be affiliated with any candidate running in the presidential primary. Strikingly, these conversations yielded a similar...

    Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is in the final stages of deciding whether to run for president and has told allies he is skeptical the other Democrats eyeing the White House can defeat President Trump, an assessment that foreshadows a clash between the veteran Washington insider and the more liberal and fresh-faced contenders for the party's 2020 nomination. Many Democratic voters, and nearly all major Democratic donors, are keenly interested in Mr. Biden’s plans because of their consuming focus on finding a candidate who can beat a president they believe represents a threat to American democracy. But there...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden bemoaned the tone of Trump-era politics at a campaign stop in Iowa on Tuesday, previewing on his first trip to the leadoff caucus state how he might take on the Republican president should he seek the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. “It’s our leaders who need to set the tone and dial down the temperature and restore some dignity to our national dialogue,” Biden said in Cedar Rapids while stumping for Iowa’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate and a House candidate from northeast Iowa.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday likened President Trump to former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, a vocal adversary of the Civil Rights movement and supporter of segregation. “Trump and Republicans settle on fear and falsehoods as a midterm strategy,” Biden said during a rally at Cheyenne Saloon in Orlando, Fla., CNN reported. "No president has ever led by fear. Not Lincoln. Not Roosevelt. Not Kennedy. Not Reagan. This president is more like George Wallace than George Washington.” Biden said, on the other hand, the Democrats are running on hope and unity instead of fear and division....

The potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told CBS “This Morning” Thursday he’s concerned Trump “seems to have a love affair with autocrats” and “coddles” dictators, including North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, Russia’s Vladimir Putin and the Saudi ruling family. […] Biden said he hopes Democrats don’t pursue Trump’s impeachment if the party takes over the House, saying, “I don’t think there’s a basis for doing that right now.” …

    I have a confession to make. I wasn’t sure Hillary Clinton would beat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Sure, I supported Clinton, wanted her to be our president and cried for about three days in the fetal position when she lost – but I wasn’t entirely shocked that Trump won. For years I have seen my own Democratic Party support very intelligent candidates who seem a bit too highbrow for mainstream America. John Kerry was a very eloquent, intelligent and polished speaker who I felt wiped the floor with George W. Bush in all three of their presidential...

    LONDON - Former Vice President Joe Biden predicted on Wednesday that the Democrats would win 40 seats in the House and would also take back the Senate in the November midterm elections. "I predict to you the Democrats will win 40 seats in the House. And I predict to you there's a slightly better than even chance we win the Senate," Biden said in a speech during a visit to London. He said a deep dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump and his administration would result in the Democratic wave. "President Trump is the only president - and I've been there...

    Biden said the behavior of Republican members of the committee was “a degree of invective, blind rage, and brute partisanship that threatens not only the Senate and the Supreme Court — it threatens the basic faith in fairness and justice that binds this country together.” Calling Ford “courageous” and “credible” in detailing her allegations, Biden said she deserves to have the FBI conduct an investigation into the alleged incident.

    One Democrat keeps emerging as the candidate Republicans are worried about most in 2020: Joe Biden. Top Republican strategists and party operatives assessing the potential field of candidates say the former vice president is the Democrat likely to pose the biggest problem for President Trump in a general election. Biden, who has not announced whether he will seek the White House for a third time, would have to win a crowded Democratic primary to get to the general, and that would be no easy task.

    Weighing a 2020 campaign for president, former Vice President Joe Biden says he should have protected Anita Hill from what he called “character assassination” during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Justice Clarence Thomas more than a quarter century ago. Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee during the contentious 1991 hearings. As sexual misconduct again shadows a high court confirmation, Biden said he failed to prevent the all-male committee from putting Hill on the defensive. “Anita Hill was vilified when she came forward, by a lot of my colleagues,” Biden said during an interview on NBC’s Today. “I wish I...

    Shortly after Joe Biden boarded a recent flight from Washington to New York, a string of passengers began stopping at his seat in coach to deliver some version of the same message: Run, Joe, run. “We’re with you,” one said, according to a Democratic strategist who happened to be on the plane and witnessed the scene. “You’ve got to do this,” said another. Biden himself is more conflicted — but he is listening keenly to the supporters pushing him to run for the White House in 2020. Biden is convinced he can beat President Donald Trump, friends and advisers say,...

    A plurality of registered voters, 44 percent, said they’d choose Biden in the 2020 presidential election, while 37 percent of voters said they would vote for Trump. The percentage of Democrats who would choose Biden — 80 percent — was slightly higher than the 78 percent of Republicans who would vote for the president‘s reelection. The former vice president, who ran for the White House in 1988 and 2008, has been floated as a 2020 contender, and Biden himself has said he’s not ruling out a third try. Morning Consult surveyed 1,993 registered voters from July 26 to July 30...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden ripped President Donald Trump and the Republican Party in a speech endorsing New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) for his third term in Albany. At the New York State Democratic Party convention in Hempstead, Biden told the crowd that the party Trump leads is "not your father's Republican Party." "They are not who we are. They are not who America is," Biden said, claiming that the GOP is sending a "distorted" vision of America "around the world." "That is hurting us," he said.

There are enough examples out there of Biden's handsy behavior, but here is just a sample: "In this clip, former Vice President Biden uses a candid moment to fondle the chest area of a little girl -- in front of her entire family. Her visible discomfort is extremely obvious. https://t.co/PXZx68KEGe" https://i1.wp.com/thepoliticalinsider.com/content/uploads/2017/03/cropped-tpiIcon.png?fit=270%2C270&ssl=1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=134&v=DKVNra5eJro That's creepy.
