The Biden revival is also beginning to look like a Democratic tour de force [View all]


Biden goes from rags to riches
Rick Newman, Senior Columnist, Yahoo FinanceMarch 5, 2020


Bidenís presidential bid was moribund and broke heading into the Feb. 29 primary in South Carolina, with poor showings in all three prior elections. Then Biden broke through with a thunderclap win that drove competitors from the race and led to a pile of Super Tuesday victories on March 3. Biden has overtaken Bernie Sanders to become the Democratic frontrunner and assuage fears of a failed socialist revolution. Bidenís revival has been so dramatic critics would call it treacly and unrealistic if this were a Hollywood film.


The Biden revival is also beginning to look like a Democratic tour de force. Just two months ago, the Democratic primaries seemed a shambolic mess, with too many candidates bickering over ancient grievances and trivial policy differences in almost unwatchable debates. The entrance of the multibillionaire Bloomberg into the race triggered Sandersí and Elizabeth Warrenís class warfare impulses, leading to more interparty attacks rather than a unified assault on Trump.

Now, the once-disorderly Democrats are becoming remarkably unified, avoiding the multi-lane free-for-all that allowed Trump to win the 2016 Republican nomination. Moderates have quickly closed ranks around Biden, who may now be the best-funded candidate in history, if Bloomberg does his bidding. Itís still a two-man race, with Sanders likely to remain competitive. But Sandersí main advantage has been a handful of moderates splitting that part of the vote, while he gets most of the liberal tally. That advantage has evaporated. Moderates still outnumber liberals in the Democratic primaries, and with all of their vote going to Biden, Sanders is in trouble.

It goes on to say that Biden is not witout flaws but Sanders is even more flawed.

The Biden movement is in full force. Come on board Liz, Harris and Booker!

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
