Why is Biden so popular in the South?
I was just looking at Democratic primary polls. Sanders is pulling ahead almost everywhere, but Biden is a double digit leader in southern states.

I assume some of it is the black vote and his eight years of association with Obama, but does he have some magic pull among Southern whites?

It might all be moot because Bloomberg is trying to buy his fast pass to the nomination.

A certain sector of people in the South are completely ignorant. Louisiana politics should show you that.

Seems more democrats in the South are establishment democrats so they are more inclined to vote the establishment candidate. Bernie isn't seen as one and others like Steyer and Bloomberg aren't.

It’s just his association with Obama.

Most African Americans associate him with Obama and don't care much for Pete, Bernie or Warren.

It's not that he's popular

I know most people don't realize this but a majority of Democratic primary voters in the South are black

Joe biden's opponents in the South are
A gay dude. Blacks don't like gays

Bernie who pissed off the blacks last time for some unknown reason

And a woman who pretended to be a person of color for most of her adult life

LOL. Biden is the default choice in that circumstance

Its funny how the media portrays Iowa and New Hampshire as not representative of the party but shouldnt a Democratic candidate be strong in the states he needs to carry in the fall election? No democrat is going to win South Carolina. So who really cares about South Carolina. . But he better win Wisconsin(87% white) or Michigan (78% white) or Pennsylvania(80% white) to have a chance at winning the fall election.

My Grandfather would always say he'd vote for a dead dog before he would vote for a Republican. Most of those people are gone, they had their last hurrah with Jimmy Carter. The Great Society set this country back years, all for a pandering scheme to get black votes.

He’s very left, but he’s not wacko far left. The libs I know are Southern libs and they don’t like the wackos. That being said, they will still vote D.

"What kind of a chance would a northeastern liberal like Joe Biden stand in the south if you were running in Democratic primaries against southerners like Mark Warner and John Edwards?" Wallace asked.

"Better than anybody else," Biden replied. "And you don't know my state. My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state is the eighth-largest black population in the country. My state is anything from a northeast, liberal state."

Southern Democrats are more moderate than most other Democrats around the country. Biden is seen by many as a moderating figure within the Democratic Party.
