So why is Biden so hard to hate? Like Trump, Biden is an established brand with near 100 percent name recognition. We have lived with Biden for decades, and not just as a reality TV star. If he were going to do something either crazily radical or insanely corrupt, we figure, he would have done it already. They’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink at him, but it has proven almost impossible to begrime the Biden brand.

1. K&R

Very perceptive article. Thanks for posting.

I think it also helps that Democrats haven't been attacked from within the party as much this cycle. Hillary was pummeled.

2. Trump focus grouped every line of attack

They found that none had an effect. The country knows Joe and knows he's a decent honest man.

3. Joe Biden is Superman.....

Metaphorically speaking.

Hard to dig up dirt against Joe. Tara who? That story went nowhere.

Even those horrid anti-Joe Biden ads by the Trump campaign are having no affect if Joe is rising in the polls.

4. He's a man.

A middle-class do-gooder liberal like Hillary Clinton was easily turned into Satan. People are stupid.

5. MSNBC discussed this yesterday

Trump is flumoxed on how to run against an old, moderate white guy.

6. Not to forget how Biden has persevered despite personal tragedy:

The car accident that took his first wife and his toddler daughter.
The death of his son, Beau, from brain cancer.
Stepped aside to grieve in 2016, to allow another Democrat try to keep the WH.

Joe may be on the quiet side compared to Trump, but he's rock solid.
