Biden changed the state to four different campaigns from Hanover to Keene on Friday and Saturday before he attended a fundraiser in New York City. The Biden voyage was vintage: soft stories, many hands and a few people.
The Biden crowds, who were quite small and older, said that Trump is involved. They see Biden as a uniform with the experience of giving the White House a routine routine, while the Vice-President won the best lines when preaching this unity.
“The president intends to be president on his base. I will be president of every American. People know who Donald Trump is; we must let them know that we are, ”said Biden that he was a huge event at Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire.
New Hampshire is an important state for Biden, who could clean the field if he could win a future and Iowa, the first two of his primary tests next year, said Phillip Barker, a political scientist in State College Keene. But, Barker added, Biden could survive on the losing Granite State, unlike Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who come from neighboring states.
“Victory in New Hampshire and Iowa for Biden would make him an incredible candidate, but he has the money and name recognition to survive,” Barker said.
The tour, which came as most of its competitors attended at the party's annual conference in California, was marked by the fourth visit he gave to the state from his announcement of a president's offer in April, and he promised to return as many people as possible to see him.
Biden is in charge of the large Democratic field in most of the national opinion polls, but his progressive contestants Warren, a US senator from Massachusetts, and Sanders, U.'s Vermont senator, are approaching New York. Hampshire.
Biden joined New Hampshire with positive questions about his ability to energize the party, in particular his progressive wing that gives him insight – and his policies – as anacronistic.
Biden told a crowd in Dartmouth College that his health care plan – which preserves the most popular parts of Obamacare and chooses them with a new public insurance option run by the government – costs about $ 740 billion, rather than the tagged multi-trillion dollar prices on some of his opponents who are pushing Medicare plans for All.
He also said that he would give workers choices, not ones ultimatums.
“If you have a plan that is already working, you are entitled to keep it. If you're not happy, you'll have a public choice, ”said Biden.
Reuters spoke to about 25 people who were present at the campaign events, and the vast majority said that Biden's biggest draw was his election.
Bill Swinburne, a 76-year-old psychiatrist from Marlborough, New Hampshire, said that he personally preferred Warren but if the election was now going he would pull the lever for Biden.
“I don't think Warren can win the Midwest states. The Republicans are trying to brand her socialist, ”said Swinburne.
Steer Biden Saturday into Linder's Diner – a campaign in Keene stops where he ate a grilled sandwich and hooked hook – and took a seat with Molly Lane, a 67-year-old unprofitable worker.
She blocked him and said, “You must get out of Trump and get out of the White House.” Biden replied, “I want.”
Afterwards, Lane spoke to reporters and said: “I stopped him; he was not hugging me, ”he obviously criticized Biden's history that he was“ under pressure ”which came under a new scrutiny in the #MeToo era.
Biden took a few moments at the end of his first adventure on Friday when he noticed that his political heroes, Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, were assassinated and asked students if they could imagine if Barack Omaba was come with the same fate.
Biden was asked about New Hampshire and about the town of Keene outside Lindy Diner on Saturday, and it seemed he forgot where he was.
“Do you not love Vermont in terms of the beauty of the place? This means that a beautiful, beautiful town, ”Biden said to reporters.
While Biden's heritage is part of the gaffes for a long time, when they are 76 years old, they put together new questions about his work for some voters. Some people interviewed at the rallies said that they were attending as they wanted to see it personally to assess its healing and vitality.
“Age is definitely an issue, and I think it must show that it is up to the job at this time,” said Al Cirone, 71, and is waiting online for Friday's Biden event. Cirone stated that Biden is the best choice, citing his experience and moderate standing.
A reporter asked on Biden Saturday if his age was a matter of concern. He replied, “If I don't worry, don't vote for me.”
