What America Thinks: Biden’s Not Running

Well, it’s official: Joe Biden is not running for president. Despite the fact that 69% of Likely U.S. Voters expected him to run, Biden has officially stated he will not seek the Democratic presidential nomination. In September, 35% thought he should run, and 49% thought, if he did, that it was likely he would end up the party’s nominee for president. Still, in a preliminary Democratic primary poll in January, Biden earned just six percent (6%) of the vote, compared to now-frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s 59%. But in a September matchup, he trailed just 34% to 48%.
