New key state polling suggests he could do better than Hillary
The head of steam that’s building up over a Joe Biden WH2016 bid has received an enormous boost with a range of key state polling from Quinnipac University suggesting that in several battles the Vice-President could do better than Hillary against a range of likely GOP nominees.
This follows an awkward month for the odds-on favourite, Hillary, trying to deal with the email affair as well as seeing her personal favourability decline sharple.
The problem for Biden and any other contender is that the Clinton campaign has just about every possible skilled party organiser and big party donor on its books. It would be a massive task for Biden or anybody to get into the game at this stage.
But as long as Clinton looks weak then the speculation over another serious contender will continue. It might be Biden or it might be someone else.
I started laying Hillary on Betfair when she was 1.21. That’s now 1.44.
