Joe Biden Now Top Presidential Choice for 25% of Dems

Joe Biden has finally cracked the ten point mark behind Hillary Clinton, and it’s looking increasingly like he’s the top choice for most Democrats.

Hillary Clinton has all but disappeared from public view of late, as the State Department and FBI continue their quest to glean every last email from her erstwhile bathroom server and Bernie Sanders has remained trapped in the indie concert circuit, so Joe has had plenty of time to ascend through the ranks. Even though the numbers seem to demonstrate that he’s the candidate of “please just someone other than Hillary,” his opportunity is looking sharper ever day

Clinton, once the prohibitive front-runner, is now the top choice of 33 percent of registered Democrats and those who lean Democrat, the poll shows. Biden places second with 25 percent and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is at 24 percent…

Adding to the good news for the vice president: His favorability ratings are on the rise. Since the last Bloomberg poll in April, Clinton’s favorability ratings have dropped 10 points, from 48 percent to 38 percent. Biden’s 49 percent favorable score represents a 3-point uptick. He was the only one of a dozen national political figures and entities whose approval rating improved over the summer.

Biden is solidly beating Clinton with the ladies, as well. Hillary Clinton’s approval rating among women is around 74% with women. Biden’s solidly eclipses her with an 81% approval rating. He also runs ahead of her in favorability among men. Bernie Sanders lags behind both because he looks like he just woke up from an impromptu nap at Starbucks.

The question now seems to be “when,” as in, “when will Joe Biden finally admit that he’s running for President?” The possibilities seem endless. More than likely, he’ll enter the race if Hillary tanks in the first debate, and after Sanders has had a chance to elucidate his socialist policies on live television. That gives him the opportunity to pick up Hillary’s detractors and people who didn’t quite understand that Sanders was serious all these months.
