Okay, who agrees with Biden's idea that there will be a Republican "epiphany" if Dem wins. (poll) [View all]


Biden: Republicans will have an 'epiphany' after Trump leaves White House

Presidential hopeful Joe Biden said Tuesday he believes Republicans will have an “epiphany” and be more willing to work with Democrats when President Trump leaves office.

“I just think there is a way, and the thing that will fundamentally change things is with Donald Trump out of the White House — not a joke — you will see an epiphany occur among many of my Republican friends,” the former vice president said during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, adding that the GOP feels “intimidated” by Trump.
