BTRTN 2020 Vision: Joe Biden Enters the Race and Takes Command

Born To Run The Numbers provides its latest monthly quantitative and qualitative synopsis of the 2020 race for the White House. The big news: Joe Biden comes out strong, and has the numbers to show for it.

Excerpts:"The first few weeks of Joe Bidenís long-awaited 2020 campaign were always going to be utterly crucial to his prospects. Out of the spotlight for some time, would the 76-year-old look too frail or aged to potential voters? Long a poor fundraiser, with neither big-time Wall Street connections nor a small money Main Street online donor network, would he disappoint with his initial numbers? And would he resume his persona as the 'Gaffing Groper' on the campaign trail, master of 20th century retail politics but woefully out of touch with 21st century sensibilities? No, no and no. Joe Biden has passed the early tests of his candidacy Ė demonstrating vitality, clout and adaptability -- and has emerged as the clear frontrunner in the Democratic sweepstakes, dominating a swelling field that now numbers 23, and may still be growing...
"Unlike any of the other candidates, Biden made it clear he was running against Trump, invoking Charlottesville and ignoring the Democratic field. Suddenly Democrats were reminded that while progressives have been the loudest voices within the party of late, clamoring for change, the dominant voting bloc remains more mainstream centrists...
"Bidenís strong start sets up a far different dynamic than was anticipated. Essentially it is Bidenís nomination until he stumbles, and he will continue to run against Trump until (and unless) he has to address a real challenge. Trump is helping carry Bidenís water considerably, tweeting (or re-tweeting) about Biden in a frenzy after the launch, clearly reflecting of the Trumpian view that Biden is the only real threat he faces..."

2. This is true. However with such a large field it will be very difficult

They have to do well in the debates. Really well. And Job B has to do badly.
