Joe Biden is simply running away with the democratic nomination in the still-early machinations fo the 2020 presidential race.
The former Vice President’s team did an excellent job of committing to their timing, despite widespread concerns over Biden’s late entry into the field. This could very well have been an ingenious political maneuver, allowing Biden’s likely candidacy to simmer, forcing all of the longtime politician’s “dirt” to be aired before making anything official.
After hastily dispelling the serious claims of sexual misconduct surrounding Biden, his campaign launched – and democrats supported him in droves, driving Obama’s Vice President to a hefty, double digit lead over his nearest competitor Bernie Sanders.
With this lead Biden is now growing bold, taking pot shots at even his own party in an effort to frame the 2020 primaries as all but a formality.

Biden is set to hold a campaign event Saturday in Philadelphia to officially kick off his White House bid, casting himself as a unifier in a crucial swing state that split its popular vote nearly evenly between Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Uncle Joe is now calling out “the resistance” in an effort to subdue the hysterical democratic party.
“Some say Democrats don’t want to hear about unity. That they are angry – and the angrier you are – the better. That’s what they are saying [you] have to do to win the Democratic nomination,” Biden will say, according to excerpts circulated by his campaign.
“Well, I don’t believe it. I believe Democrats want to unify this nation. That’s what we’ve always been about. Unity,” Biden is expected to say.
Donald Trump has criticized Biden as “sleepy” in a number of tweets, and hasn’t shied away from denouncing the former Vice President’s “low energy”.
The two have traded barbs for years, with each having insinuate on separate occasions their individual willingness to engage in a grade-school style fist fight with one another.
