Former Vice President Joe Biden is on his way out and Democrats are reeling. Without Biden as their golden boy, the election is looking even more bleak for them in November.
Biden, embarrassed by his showing in Iowa and New Hampshire, quickly shifted his attention to South Carolina — but a new poll shows him and Sanders in a dead heat in this make-or-break state for Biden.
“The poll, conducted by Change Research for the Democratic group The Welcome Party, shows Biden and Sanders knotted at 23 percent support each,” reported The Hill.
If Sanders continues to surge and even narrowly defeats Biden in South Carolina, Biden will likely be out of political options. Losing in South Carolina would be a campaign death sentence.
Here’s why: Biden is depending on southern states to reinvigorate his flailing campaign, and the Palmetto State is a test of this strategy. He can’t handle a poor showing here going into Super Tuesday.
As much as the Democratic Party is in denial, Sanders is currently the frontrunner for the nomination and Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is surging. This is bad news for Biden.
