Already making big strides as the US 2020 presidential elections approach, the former vice president Joe Biden, has now launched his new campaign slogan: “No Malarkey”.
On Saturday, Biden kicked off his 8-day campaign of Iowa, which will host the first presidential nominating contest on February 3. The candidate is looking to gain numbers, especially after Pete Buttigieg has also risen quickly through the ranks to be named amongst favorites.
“You might have heard, we’re heading out on an eight-day, 18 county, ‘No Malarkey’ barnstorm across Iowa next week,” Biden said in a fundraising email to supporters this week. “The plan is to meet as many caucus-goers as I can, and we’re going to cover a lot of ground to do it,” he added.
Joe Biden has argued that he would bring America’s economy on track so that it works for everyone, no matter race, gender, sexual orientation or religion. Besides, stating that his prime concern is with the solving the crisis of the middle class American people.
The tour is, thus, an important part of the plan for Joe Biden, who is walking a tight rope at this time. As per the numbers, Biden’s once double-digit lead has also faded and his “No Malarkey” campaign looks to reverse it.
On the contrary, Biden still leads despite losing numbers, but many still say that a slight slip in Iowa could lead to long term consequences. The former vice president is heavily relying on his strong infrastructure, as well support from local politicians, to force an issue in the caucuses.
Yet Biden’s campaign has been criticized for viability of his plans and for letting lose millions of dollars, as third quarter figures revealed. Presently, the potential candidate is trailing by millions of dollars to other major democratic frontrunners.
“Our opponents’ advertising blitzes and cash-on-hand advantage have turned into real support for them in Iowa,” said one Biden campaign email to supporters last week.
The stage is set for everyone as the US 2020 presidential elections approach, but who makes the most of it remains to be seen. For Biden, if “No Malarkey” works and delivers in Iowa, it could be a cherry on the cake. But as most believe, victory in Iowa is far from a sure thing, and first-place finish for Biden is, thus, a dream that might never come true.
