“Last week, in Denver, we saw that Joe Biden has the experience, the expertise, and the tenacity to replace President Trump.”
That’s what Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez said at the start of last night’s DNC dinner in Denver. And it’s true: Biden has many advantages over a full-fledged presidential candidate: the support of top-tier Democratic Party leaders like Perez and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the electability reputation of his husband and an image as a winner who will beat Trump. But there was another reason Biden rallied the party faithful to his side during his home state speech, too: the dramatic surge in polling that Bernie Sanders demonstrated the last time a Democratic presidential candidate surprised everyone by winning a primary.
With up to 17 candidates running for the party’s nomination, no one has become the consensus choice. And with likely caucuses or primaries set for at least 15 states in March and April, some experts predict that by the time the race begins to really pick up, many of the remaining candidates could be locked in a death match — meaning a coronation of the front-runner could be on the horizon.
Joe Biden, it seems, may be the last man standing.
