Joe Biden mocked for 'no malarkey' campaign pledge

The former vice-president pledged first to win the Feb 3 Iowa caucuses, despite recent polls suggesting his standing there has slipped in recent months.

"So we're on a No Malarkey tour, meaning we're telling the truth". And so, I think for us, part of running a campaign is also being able to be able to interact with voters."Iowa and beyondSince September, Biden's team has maintained that the "first in the nation" caucus state is not a "must-win' for the campaign, arguing that for Democrats to be successful in 2020, the party needs a candidate who can win over more than just white voters."If you're going to be the nominee for the Democratic Party in 2020, you need to have a strong multi-racial coalition". But his advisers also insisted he had wide support and remained well positioned to recover any lost ground.

His chief argument - his perceived strength against Trump - was on clear display Saturday. Sidestepping his philosophical tussle with progressive Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders over the party's direction, Biden struck a general- election posture.

He added an emphasis on small town and rural America, an electoral swathe where Democrats have struggled in recent elections, but that could prove critical.

The 77-year-old Biden still enjoys a comfortable lead in national polls. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg appears to hold a narrow edge over Biden and Massachusetts Sen.

Fairly or not, Biden's national staff has fuelled skeptical assessments with pronouncements that he doesn't have to win Iowa to win the nomination. Iowa is overwhelmingly white; Biden's national advantage leans heavily on non-white voters who will help determine outcomes in Nevada, South Carolina and many March 3 Super Tuesday states.

The phrase, emblazoned on the bus he is utilizing to spin all the map thru the most well-known issue of Iowa, dates aid to the 1920s.

They contend that, public enthusiasm aside, Biden has the broadest range of support both demographically and geographically, especially in rural and small-town Iowa and among the growing minority population that, while small, could prove important with so many candidates dividing the overall caucus vote.

Another Biden volunteer, Phyllis Hughes Ewing, said outside media underappreciated Biden's appeal. "I'm on the phones with voters two nights a week for several hours at a pop".

"One of things that I am absolutely, one thousand percent confident of, is that Joe Biden has the heart to be a good president".

The bullishness starts with the viability threshold requiring candidates to get 15% support in a given precinct to have votes counted toward delegates. First, top contenders like Warren or Buttigieg whose support might be anchored in more liberal cities and suburbs would get no practical benefit from first-ballot votes in more rural precincts where they fall short of 15%. Then, they believe Biden will be a top beneficiary of "realignment" - subsequent ballots that allow voters who supported a nonviable candidate to choose another who's still standing. Biden advisers confirmed they already are mapping out realignment ballot strategy. But you know this, that Barack Obama was behind Hillary Clinton amongst black voters until he won in Iowa.

A second suggested on the social network that the arcane language showed Mr Biden was "tired and old". Howard Dean led in Iowa for much of 2003, wowing progressives and drawing large crowds.

Schaitberger smiled as he recalled a newspaper headline in late fall of 2003: "Kerry dead in the water".
