Joe Biden is causing along in the lead in the polls…
It’s been that way for months…
Even as the media keeps shit canning him…
Other campaigns are wishing and hoping for him to fail….
The window is open for just a few more months…
He continues to outdistance the rest of the Democratic primary field in most polls. And his head-to-head lead over President Donald Trump are stronger than anyone else’s.

Many of Biden’s supporters, said Rendell, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, are “nervous as hell.”
In part, the anxiety surrounding Biden’s candidacy is rooted in the lastpresidential campaign. After Hillary Clinton was upset by Trump, many Democrats adopted a more sober view of what it means to be a front-runner.
Doubts about Biden’s durability were widely held even before he announced his campaign: There was his long and moderate record in the Senate, newly vulnerable in a Democratic Party that has shifted left, his history of weak fundraising, his previously failed presidential campaigns and, at 76, his age.

And public support he held before announcing his candidacy — once viewed mainly as affinity for a former statesman and broad name recognition, not an electoral preference — hasn’t faded….
