Biden tells potential donors he's close to announcing 2020 run

In the latest CNN poll of voters who say they will likely vote in the Democratic primary, Biden leads with 28 percent, compared to Sanders at 20 percent.

According to CNBC, several donors declined Biden's request to bundle campaign contributions due to their skepticism regarding whether the 76-year-old establishmentarian could survive a bruising Democrat primary.

Biden has yet to publicly announce his candidacy for president, but stories in recent days have claimed he is preparing to launch a campaign.

Democrats running in the 2020 presidential election are mulling the idea of packing the Supreme Court, but possible 2020 contender and former Vice President Joe Biden burst Democrats' bubble as he once called court packing a awful idea.

The leaders noted that Biden's foreign policy track record and longtime commitment to the transatlantic alliance would be a sure way to fix the damage done by President Donald Trump's policy of disengagement, the report said.


Biden's early advantage is driven by his high name recognition and his close association with former President Barack Obama. Abrams is seen as a rising star in the Democratic Party, and as an African American woman, she would bring diversity to the ticket.

It looks like another heavyweight Democratic presidential contender is on the verge of entering the race.

"Joe Biden is someone who sees the differences in our country and inspires us, reminds us of the ways in which we have overcome them in the past and will lift us up", Coons said.

This would not be the first time Biden has sought presidency. "I also don't think Joe Biden's politics and views line up so well with hers", tweeted King.
