Biden Gets Ugly As Cracks Appear In His Frontrunner Image
Biden just learned the hard way that his frontrunner image is not going to carry him through the primaries. Eighty-five percent of the total tallied results have been reported in Iowa, and Biden is not even in the top 3. There is still another 15% of the vote that has yet to be reported, but he would need practically 10% of the remaining votes just to get up to 2nd place. So at best he might knock out Warren and get 3rd, and that's if he is lucky. This new fear of losing has given him more of an aggressive stance as after he admitted Iowa was a tough loss, he lashed out at Sanders and Buttigieg.
"In New Hampshire on Tuesday, Biden insisted he had a “good night” in Iowa. But he was more frank on Wednesday during an event in Somersworth. “I am not going to sugarcoat it, we took a gut punch in Iowa,” Biden said. “But look, this isn’t the first time in my life I’ve been knocked down.”
Biden was quick to attack opponents that he once thought stood no chance against him.
“If Sen. Sanders is the nominee for the party, every Democrat in America up and down the ballot, in blue states, red states, purple states and easy districts and competitive ones, every Democrat will have to carry the label Sen. Sanders has chose for himself,” the former vice president said during a campaign event in New Hampshire, where voters will go to the polls next Tuesday. “He calls himself a democratic socialist. Well, we’re already seeing what Donald Trump is going to do with that.”
Biden said he had “great respect” for Buttigieg but didn’t think the Democrats’ standard-bearer against President Donald Trump should be someone who hasn’t been elected to a higher office than mayor of South Bend, Indiana, a city of about 100,000.
“It’s a risk, to be just straight up with you,” he said."
Sanders is projected to win New Hampshire so it's not going to be an easy road for Biden. But we will have to see if Dems play nice this time around and give Sanders a fair shot. Since they rigged it against him last time with Hillary bankrolling the DNC.
