Joe Biden Struggles with Visibility, Enthusiasm and Sexual Assault Allegation


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Branko Marcetic, a staff writer at Jacobin magazine and a 2019-2020 Leonard C. Goodman Institute for Investigative Reporting fellow. His new book is called Yesterday’s Man: The Case Against Joe Biden.


With the coronavirus pandemic bringing the country to a screeching halt and changing life as we know it in the US, the most important election of our time has also seemingly been halted in its tracks. The biggest story before the pandemic was declared was the primary race for the Democratic nomination for president.

Turning his candidacy around at the last-minute former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to be a front runner with a nearly insurmountable lead. But now, with much of the country under quarantine is Biden’s campaign also on life-support?

Not only is Biden struggling with visibility, he also faces a growing enthusiasm gap. And, most troublingly, in recent days, an allegation against him of sexual assault has emerged.
