Dems Worry Biden is ‘Weaker’ Candidate Than Hillary

February 12, 2019

Democratic Party strategists are expressing skepticism about the 2020 presidential chances of former VP Joe Biden, concerned he will make a weaker opponent for President Trump than 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton.

“We’ve seen a whole new level of energy that has emerged through a lot of fresh faces, and the party has moved in that direction and wants to hear new ideas and different messages,” said a former executive of the Iowa Democratic Party. “There’s a lot of reason to think he would wind up a significantly weaker candidate than Hillary,” added one anonymous source.

“I’m not convinced Biden is the right way to go at this point in time,” said another Democratic operative.
