Biden says family more important than missed campaign trip

Biden says family more important than missed campaign trip

In a free-ranging back-and-forth with reporters on the White House lawn before departing for Iowa, Trump ripped into Biden as "loser" and claimed he wants to run against the former vice president because "I think he's the weakest mentally".

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, whose quiet, Midwestern approach and profile as 37-year-old Afghanistan veteran and married gay man has captured some Iowans' attention, also not so subtly challenged the idea that Biden's experience made him the best party standard bearer. Kamala Harris comes closest at 7%, and other numbers within the poll indicate some underlying strengths for her.

The six Democratic primary front runners could beat President Donald Trump, a new Quinnipiac University poll revealed Tuesday.

"That reminds me of Crooked Hillary", Trump said. "The others have much more energy". New Hampshire will be the nation's first "primary" state, and Iowa will hold the first caucuses.

Nineteen of the 23 Democratic presidential candidates descended on Iowa this weekend, each one looking for a way to stand out from the pack.

Therefore, it is not surprising that Biden's lead is more commanding in "national" polls than what one finds in Iowa.

Nowhere was that more evident than Cedar Rapids on Sunday, where 19 of the 24 candidates showed up for a cattle-call, ready for action.

Biden aims to draw a contrast between President Trump and himself on several key issues, namely: climate change, tariffs, and restoring "American values".

Surprises often happen in the Iowa caucuses. "Fully 72% of Black Americans say they are dissatisfied with the economic situation for Black Americans today (including 37% very dissatisfied), compared with 57 percent who are dissatisfied with the state of the USA economy in general". Bernie Sanders with 16 percent, Massachusetts Sen. Reagan, of course, went on to win both the nomination and the general election that fall over Jimmy Carter.

Although he was booed at the California Democratic State Convention in San Francisco recently for trying to appear "moderate", Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is the candidate who is most in the mold of a Carter. Including in Iowa and at the Wing Ding a year ago. Then he flies to central Des Moines, the state's biggest city with more than 200,000 residents, for a dinner and fundraiser with state Republicans.

After months of jabbing from afar, President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden are overlapping Tuesday in Iowa, a state that's critical to their political futures.
