Former Vice President Joe Biden officially entered the 2020 race today and instantly assumes the role of frontrunner. He is leading all other Democrats in polls for the nomination, moved back on top in terms of Social Media Support, and leads President Trump in General Election polling.
Of course, with 20 candidates in the race, being the frontrunner does not guarantee victory. The Democratic Party has become younger, more diverse, and more liberal in recent years. That could present a challenge for a older, white male candidate who has traditionally been viewed as a centrist.
However, he is the frontrunner for now and has a serious chance of winning the right to challenge President Trump.
It’s worth noting that a majority of the social media chatter about Biden is now positive. A few weeks ago, most of the chatter was negative.
