It looks like Joe Biden is now in pole position for the Democratic nomination after presidential candidate and everyone’s favourite old person Bernie Sanders suspended his campaign. This essentially makes former vice-president Joe Biden the presumptive nominee for a showdown with Republican President Donald Trump in the Nov 3 election.
Sanders made the announcement in a call with his campaign staff, saying that “the path to victory is virtually impossible.”
“I wish I could give you better news, but I think you know the truth, and that is that we are now some 300 delegates behind Vice President Biden, and the path toward victory is virtually impossible,” Sanders said in a livestream after the call. “So while we are winning the ideological battle and while we are winning the support of so many young people and working people throughout the country, I have concluded that this battle for the Democratic nomination will not be successful. And so today I am announcing the suspension of my campaign.”Bernie Sanders
