Biden enters the field as frontrunner, with considerable built-in advantages. He leads the early nomination polling by a significant margin, and performs the best in the field in hypothetical, head-to-head matchups against President Trump. What’s more, despite ample attention given to the party’s left wing, roughly half of Democratic primary voters consider themselves moderate or conservative.
“Biden looks most like the person who could beat Trump,” says David Ignatius, “And that’s Job One.” He adds, “Progressive activists within the party are generating ideas and energy that could galvanize a country that wants a fairer economy and a cleaner government.” None of that matters, Ignatius says, “unless a Democrat wins.”
