Bloomberg Poll: 1 in 4 Democrats favor Biden

And the guy’s not even running — yet.

Here’s the news from Bloomberg:

One quarter of Americans who are registered Democrats or lean that way say Vice President Joe Biden is now their top choice for president. The findings of a national Bloomberg Politics poll released Wednesday represent a notable achievement for an as-yet undeclared candidate, suggest concerns about Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, and raise the prospect of a competitive three-way race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Clinton, once the prohibitive front-runner, is now the top choice of 33 percent of registered Democrats and those who lean Democrat, the poll shows. Biden places second with 25 percent and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is at 24 percent. The other three Democratic candidates combined are the top choice for less than 4 percent of that base….

Not only that, but almost half of respondents say they think the veep should get into it. Sounds like some of those still with Hillary want a backup plan…

    Joe connects with people. Hillary can’t. Watching her the other week in Iowa tiptoeing up on apologizing for the e mail choice, she was reading from a script. That was terrible. Watching her on Face the Nation Sunday with her over-reacting laughter made me feel badly for her. She tries to be likeable. Joe doesn’t need to try.

    I hope Joe jumps in with a message, theme, agenda, whatever other than more Obama. Although Obama doesn’t get credit for a lot of things, more Obama may not fly.
