No matter what you think of Biden's political positions or his age, he has so many other problems to consider. How about the huge number of times he's been on camera inappropriately touching and fondling women and little girls. When I say little girls I'm not talking about 'young women', I'm talking about girls whose age is still in single digits. It's fucking sick. Now that more attention is on Biden we are seeing more and more examples of what really seems to be the early stages of dementia. It would be doubtful he could serve a full term as President if elected and forget about a 2nd term. How the hell any Dem could vote for someone with so many clear and obvious problems is beyond logic. Then again, look at the other Democratic candidates and the problem of choice is evident. Seriously Dems, you hate Trump so fucking much but this group of loonies and hasbeens is the best you could come up with to go against Trump. Trump's wit is still razor sharp and he would destroy someone like Biden on stage. Just go ask Hillary how she felt with Trump's "... because you'd be in jail." comment and how that devastated her. Remember when Megyn Kelly asked Trump about calling women "...pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals..." and he immediately responded with "Only Rossie O'Donnell" and the ENTIRE audience erupted in laughter and applause. None of the dems have that type of rapport with an audience.

His early stages of dementia will be a huge problem. DNC will still try to push him. Then where will I go...Hilary said that whenshe ran her shitty campaign. Not a champion to the working class. Bernie or Warren or stay home. If Trump wins again it's theDemocrats fault. Not the Voter. Centrist Democrats are Just Republicans with a (D) Does not work, But try to convince ClaireMccaskill that.

And this is why dems are jumping ship into unknown waters. Dems lie and then tell more lies when you catch them lying. If joe is the front runner for president then i need tojoin the republicans now so it won't look so much like i ran out because the dems decided the best route was to light their own butts on fire.

Crowd say it all, I like Biden but he seems unable to energize the people the voters , it doesn't matter if he is better fit but he is actually low energy . .his rallies have 600 attendance, Bernie on the other hand attracting equals crowds to trump but he is not favorable to dem party leaders, may be other candidates will have better chances of winning.

I’m in my mid-30s and was recently discussing the upcoming elections with 3 people in their 60s. They were absolutely sure that it can be no other candidate other than Biden but assured me that when it came down to it, they would vote for whichever democratic candidate was elected. By and large the explanation that I kept hearing over and over from them is “Biden is the most electable.” So when I would ask why, the answer would be multiple shades of “because he is the one that can win against Trump and that is the number one goal.” I was left confused as to what makes him the best candidate. I really really really don’t get it. But this explanation and a recent breakdown of polls by Vox begins to make sense of it for me but it still doesn’t sit well. What I see is that Biden is a household name for the older more moderate generation. But this is exactly why I don’t agree that he is the most electable. Trump was supposedly the least electable in his party but he reached the (albeit weirdly angry white) base he needed to reach to gain popularity. Biden is not only too safe but just too old school in his politics—and his creepy ways are, well, yes, in the past, but still occurred no matter how many ways he finds to justify that it was a “different time.” It seems to me, that many in older generations don’t even want to give other candidates a say. I believe it’s because they hear the words communist and socialist being thrown around by the other party and they’re afraid other candidates won’t be able to reach across the aisles. These words were vulgar to their generation. If people would only listen to what the real agendas of each candidate are, hopefully they’d understand that those words are attached to these candidates to damage them but in reality do not describe their agendas. We all need to listen to the candidates and their true agendas. I tend to like the candidates with the most clear agendas and the ones that have been fighting the fight not just talking about it. Sanders and Warren are high on my list because they bring high levels of knowledge of their constituents and experience, but I look forward to listening to each candidate’s ideas. I think Biden has too much baggage and I tend to think he will say what he needs to say for votes. Please, people of all age groups, do not automatically vote based on the “general view of electability.” Listen to each candidate and make your voice heard. Trump is a nasty bully and he does need to go.

Joe Biden. So selfish of him to do what he is doing now. Just give the people what they want. Now its probably gonna be another Trump term. I'm not gonna vote for that Garbage, I'd rather stay home honestly. Biden had alot of trump policies but just hides it under the disguise of a Democrat. We are so screwed and we do nothing about it... I can see why so many older people I know just don't even vote anymore.

Arturo Cardoni (4 months ago)
The reason why Biden is the most known candidate is because he has the support of the media and the establishment. Who try so hard to ignore Bernie Sanders, while protecting Biden from his horrible record! You never say that the reason Obama picked Biden was to appease White voters at the time, because otherwise Obama would appear too progressive. Because that way you're able to create a false association with Obama and paint a different picture in people's minds!

This is supposed to be the list of why people might not vote for him?? What about Policy. He voted for the crime bill, he supported the was in Iraq. He has been on the wrong side of history numerous times. He is still taking massive corporate donations. He hardly has any policies to speak of. He is a terrible candidate for more reasons than the superficial points cover on here.

Actually Biden and Sanders are tied in Iowa. Biden is only running for a single term. Sanders, who would be our first Jewish president, is a few months older than Biden but plans to run for both terms with a significantly younger female VP. While Biden has been consistently wrong on the issues with disastrous results yet refused to acknowledge any error on his part. Sanders has been consistently on the right side of history, often years before anyone else came to understand it. He has proven leadership ability while Biden rides the coattails of others. The only reason he was Obama's VP was to make white people more comfortable with a black President. While Biden is a barely disguised Republican Sanders is a good old fashioned small d Democrat. Biden is notorious for sniffling, kissing, massaging and nose rubbing little girls and women whether he knows them or not. If you don't think the Republicans will hit him hard with that, I've already seen some of what they have lined up complete with video. It's not pretty. They will hit Sanders with Socialism but they will hit every Democrat with Socialism. While the rest will back pedal and go on the defensive Sanders will just double down which is a far better strategy because it allows him to stay comfortably on the offensive. In a debate once you go on the defensive you lose.

A LOT of registered Democrats are conservatives. We just cannot be a part of the racist and misogynistic Republican Party. Between the two of them, the Democratic Party is the lesser of two evils. I don't have a problem with Biden. He proved as vice president that he can effectively work with the other side to get things done. Our country needs that. There is much damage that has to be undone because of trump and McConnell and the congressional Republicans.

Strange hearing the name of Anita Hill again. During the first of my only 2 trips to the USA, a driving holiday through California, Nevada and Arizona with my girlfriend, now wife and mother of our 2 daughters all we listened to in the car was this Clarence Thomas / Anita Hill saga and quite honestly we were shocked at the levels of racism being openly displayed. Regardless, I love US Presidential primaries and general elections. The sleaze and the dirt involved is better than watching a political series from Netflix. Most elections in Europe are nothing short of boring. May the biggest sleazebag win!
