Former Vice President Joe Biden is going to get crushed so badly in New Hampshire, maybe coming in as low at fifth place, that he’s cancelled his appearance at an election night party and is headed to South Carolina.
Instead of completely bailing on New Hampshire supporters, Joe and his wife Jill Biden will participate in a video conference.
Former Vice President Joe Biden abruptly announced on Tuesday morning that he won’t spend primary night in New Hampshire as planned and instead is flying to South Carolina to headline a kick-off rally in the state he’s long considered his campaign firewall - Fox News— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) February 11, 2020
I have no idea why you would announce this so early in the day. Wildly demoralizing to your NH staff who is still GOTV’ing. And not great for after work voters who were still making up their minds. https://t.co/deetAgB8wt— Sarah Isgur (@whignewtons) February 11, 2020
The abrupt move came after Biden spent the morning undermining his candidacy.
But it wasn't always this way.
Biden, 95 days ago, filing for the New Hampshire ballot: “I plan on trying to win New Hampshire. I’m not here to come in second. I never enter anything to come in second.” https://t.co/7TG53tvO86— Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) February 11, 2020
Meanwhile in South Carolina, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senator Bernie Sanders are gaining on Biden.
"Momentum proof leads" don't exist in places like SC and FL.— Kevin Madden (@KevinMaddenDC) February 10, 2020
If current trendline holds in NH, Biden could see double-digit poll drops in SC and FL in 48-hr period after Tuesday. https://t.co/mm4Dfqlex1
