Biden asserted that his time serving as vice president has helped him establish a voter base within the African American community and in some key states, including Pennsylvania, Colorado, Virginia and Florida. It's one of Biden's favorite phrases, one his campaign hopes will play into voters' perception of Biden as authentic and honest - drawing contrasts with Trump, but also with his Democratic rivals, whose plans on issues like health care and college tuition Biden has criticized as unaffordable and politically impractical.
"He may have said that". "If you notice in our campaign I was the one that had the intimate relationships".
On his prospects in Iowa and beyond, Biden said that if he won the first caucus state, it would be "awful hard to stop me from winning the nomination". "Oh, great, she had a showing in Chicago", Biden said, according to Politico.
He added: "You don't see [grassroots support] with Warren". "By the way, that's a wonderful thing". "I got a lot, I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun, and the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again".
"Look at the polling everywhere".
During a press scrum on Monday, Joe Biden declared that he "didn't need" the endorsement of former president Barack Obama because voters already knew of their strong association. "Tell me. Tell me where the polling has manifested itself", Biden argued. Biden acknowledged before saying that it's not fair to judge this campaign by his involvement in previous ones. "No, he doesn't have the enthusiasm and the moderate - moderate plan".
Biden lamented media coverage that he said dismissed his candidacy because he was too moderate.
Biden then told reporters that if it had been him "stealing" Buttigieg's plan, "I would be a plagiarizing, no good, old man who did bum bum bum".
A recent poll from Quinnipiac University shows that Biden holds "a huge lead among black voters", in SC with 44 percent.
Biden is now in a three-way tie for second place in Iowa with Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders.
