Delmarva Reacts to Biden's Moderate Stance on Politics, 2020 Presidential Bid

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - From Delaware, Virginia, and to Maryland, voters are taking a stance on whether Joe Biden's take on politics would win their votes.
Plenty said no following Biden's announcement to run in the 2020 Presidential Race. Some say he isn't liberal enough to make drastic change while others simply said he isn't from the right party.

Kent County Republican Chairman Hank McCann doubt he'll appeal to even Democrats.

"Maybe he's not the best for the Democratic side," McCann said. "Democrats have moved so far to the left that Biden almost appears as a Conservative, which we all know that he isn't."

Some Democrats agree.

"I think he would do an excellent job as President but I think we need something a little different right now," Susan Olsen, an Indivisible Dorchester activist, said.

Many, like Olsen, worry Biden's political leadership and history won't bring change for what the party wants.

"He has a lot more work to do because of his longevity in politics and many of the decisions he's made while in office," Megan Hart, from Sussex County, said.

Others simply aren't convinced Biden will win anyone over.

"I don't think he's going to be strong enough against immigration, but it's going to be very interested to watch," Mary Loniewski, from Accomack County, said.

"It could possibly be some of the scandal he's been in," Garry Lewis, from Dorchester County, said. "I know I'm not voting for him."

Still, plenty of supporters believe Biden's experience may just be enough to win.

"As far as I'm concerned the rest of them can drop out," Bill Brittingham, from Sussex County, said.

As it currently stands, national polls show Biden is the frontrunner in the Democratic primary.
