Dem Frontrunner Claims Massive 2020 Field Will Dwindle ‘Pretty Quickly’

Biden may be the leader of the pack, but that hasn’t stopped him from publicly wishing for a whittling of the field.

For Joe Biden’s sake, he had better hope that he’s right about this.

The current democratic frontrunner looks to be pulling away from the field in the middle of 2019, with his closest competitor, Bernie Sanders, trailing him by well over 30 points currently.

Beyond Bernie, Biden has a veritable stable of contenders to deal with, (or not deal with), as he continues to trudge toward his showdown with Trump in 2020.

The former Vice President seems to think that the 20+ person race will be “winnowed” down quickly, however, and has stated such during a recent stump speech.

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday predicted that the vast field of Democratic presidential contenders will be “winnowed out pretty quickly” in early 2020, Politico reported.

Biden noted to a group of reporters in Los Angeles that there is a 15 percent threshold for Democratic candidates in Iowa for the country’s first caucuses on Feb. 3, 2020.

“It’s going to work its way through relatively quickly for all of us,” Biden said.

Biden entered the crowded field late last month but has already surged ahead in the polls.

Biden is polling at 46 percent in recent surveys, with Bernie Sanders a distant second at only 14 percent.

The former VP will certainly have his work cut out for him on the campaign trail, as he defends himself against concerns over his advanced age and more than a half dozen women who have accused him of inappropriate intimate contact throughout his time in politics.
