Biden formally clinches Democratic presidential nomination

  • Joe Biden obtained the final votes he needed in primaries on June 2

"And Donald Trump's angry, divisive politics is no answer", Biden wrote in a post on Medium.

But it was his blowout win in the SC primary in late February, fueled by a late endorsement from influential Congressman and House Majority Whip James Clyburn and overwhelmingly strength with black voters, that rejuvenated Biden's campaign and propelled him to a delegate lead that soon became insurmountable.

Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during an event in Dover, Del., Friday, June 5, 2020.

In an interview on the widespread anti-racism protests sweeping America, Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden said that despite 10 to 15% of Americans being "not very good people", the country would overcome its divisions.

Biden has been ahead of Trump in most polls since the former vice president declared his candidacy in April 2019. The firm also said numerous polls depicting Biden's growing lead came after the death of George Floyd on May 25.

"It was an honor to compete alongside one of the most talented groups of candidates the Democratic party has ever fielded - and I am proud to say that we are going into this general election a united party". The country is crying out for leadership.

The process led the AP to allocate 21 delegates to Biden late Friday, after it completed an analysis of votes released by election officials in the three states earlier in the evening.

It's a confluence of events that no USA leader has faced in modern times, made all the more complicated by a president who has at times antagonized the protesters and is eager to take the fight to Biden. This is the 77-year-old's third run for the presidency. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people - bring them together.

The resounding victory was followed days later by a cavalcade of endorsements from some of Biden's key rivals for the Democratic nomination, including Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke.

"Instead of working to heal the raw wound of systemic racism and injustice ripped open once more by the murder of George Floyd, Trump has fomented hate and division", said Andrew Bates, Biden campaign spokesman, to CNBC.

That comment, and protests that have spread nationwide, have increased pressure on Biden to pick an African American running mate.

Mr Trump and Mr Biden have already clashed on these issues, which look set to dominate the polls in November.

At one point, the Democratic primary included dozens of candidates of different races, genders and generations and an openly gay man. "The initial reaction to ongoing racial unrest in the country suggests that most voters feel Trump is not handling the situation all that well".
