    Default Joe Biden can win the White House

    Will his gaffes and plagiarism stuff come back to haunt him? Does he have enough to hold off the other 21 to win the primary?

    What say thou about the prediction to win it all? And if so, can you live with 'ol Joe? What's your opinion on his chances overall and what you would like/dislike the most about him if he did win?

    Joe Biden can win the White House

    The Democratic primary race has changed, and it has indeed changed fundamentally. Though it has been less than a month since former Vice President Joe Biden announced his candidacy, he has emerged as the clear frontrunner in a crowded field, which expanded to 22 candidates after the announcement of Montana Governor Steve Bullock this week.

    Most candidates are struggling to break out and distinguish themselves, and all but a few have yet to break 6 percent or 7 percent in any poll since Biden officially entered the race. The latest poll by The Hill and HarrisX has Biden capturing 46 percent of the Democratic primary vote, followed by Senator Bernie Sanders with 14 percent. Trailing Sanders is South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 8 percent, and then Senator Elizabeth Warren with 7 percent, followed by fellow Senator Kamala Harris with 6 percent.

    Biden also maintains this substantial lead in key states with early primaries that are crucial to winning the party nomination. According to the latest poll by the Post and Courier and Change Research, Biden holds a lead of 31 points over the rest of the Democratic primary field in South Carolina, the third state to hold its primary in 2020. Sanders trails Biden in a distant second place, garnering 15 percent, compared to Biden with 46 percent. According to a poll by Monmouth University of Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, Biden leads the crowded field by a margin of 18 points with 36 percent support, followed by Sanders with 18 percent support.

    Indeed, it is clear many Democrats are prioritizing experience and electability, and looking to someone who they believe can beat Donald Trump. While the high national name recognition of Biden may in part explain his substantial lead in the polls, his lead is so considerable at nearly double that of Sanders, who is polling in a distant second place, that his message of experience, electability, and an ability to take on President Trump is capturing the attention of the party in this cycle.

    A recent poll by Quinnipiac University asking Democratic voters about electability is illustrative of this, as 35 percent of respondents said Biden has the best chance to beat Trump in the general election. In second place was Sanders at 17 percent. In a Democratic field populated mostly by progressive candidates, many of whom champion policies such as “Medicare for All,” Biden is notably one of the more moderate candidates, which is particularly appealing to voters in Midwest and Rust Belt states that Trump won in 2016 and that Democrats will need to win in 2020.

    Joe Biden COULD beat Trump, the problem for Biden is he probably won't even win the nomination. AOC HATES him ans do all of the progressive Democrats, they may not outnumber the "normal" Democrats, but they do hold key areas.

    Funny as hell, Biden could lose the DNC primary in much the same manner that Hillary lost the general in 2016. Win the popular vote in a contest where popular vote doesn't mean shit.

    Read another article yesterday, a nightmare - stating that the ONLY chance that the Dems have IS AOC when the time comes.

    I don't see any way she would win a general election.

    The truth is her wing of the Democratic Party is small. Vocal yes, but small. They MIGHT get a nominee through because of the way the nominations are held. But there is simply no way a person like AOC could win the electoral college.
