Joe Biden wins enough delegates to get the Democratic nomination

This is Joe Biden's best path to win in 2020

Biden has been the alleged Democratic candidate since April, when Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders dropped out of elementary school. His election victory in Guam on Saturday it allowed him to exceed the 1,991 delegates necessary to request the appointment to the first ballot of the party convention, to be held in August. Biden currently has 1,992 delegates, according to CNN’s count.

“A little over three months ago I went on stage in South Carolina and told the American people that ours was a campaign for all those who were shot down, counted and left behind. Those words take on an even greater resonance today, in a time when so many Americans hurt and suffered so many losses, “Biden said in a statement. “So many feel depressed by the public health and the economic crisis that we are experiencing. So many feel counted and left behind by a society that for too long considers them less equal, their lives less than precious”.

He added: “It has been an honor to compete alongside one of the most talented groups of candidates that the Democratic Party has ever fielded – and I am proud to say that we will participate in a united party in these general elections. Between today and November 3 fighting to win the votes of Americans across this great country so that together we can win the battle for the soul of this nation and make sure that as we rebuild our economy, everyone comes. “

The moment comes after the coronavirus pandemic has postponed most of the primaries scheduled for April and May and has stopped the campaign in person.

Seven states – Indiana, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and South Dakota – as well as Washington, DC, held primary presidential elections last Tuesday, from which Biden gathered a large number of delegates. He is expected to make more money next Tuesday when Georgia and West Virginia hold primary competitions.

CNN’s poll on general election confrontation polls between President Donald Trump and Biden finds 51% of nationally registered voters Biden while 41% support Trump. This represents a shift in favor of Biden since April, when CNN’s poll survey found support for Biden on average 48%, while Trump posted an average of 43% support.

Biden’s candidacy for nomination comes after more than a week of riots in the United States, with protests against racism and police brutality that shocked the country after the death of a black man in police custody in Minnesota. Biden, on his first trip outside Delaware in months, gave a speech in Philadelphia on Tuesday condemning Trump and facing protests taking place across the nation.

“‘I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.’ The last words of George Floyd. But they didn’t die with him. They are still being listened to. They are echoing in this nation, “Biden said.

“They talk to a nation where too often only the color of your skin puts your life at risk. They talk to a nation where more than 100,000 people lost their lives due to a virus and 40 million Americans have asked for unemployment – with a disproportionate number of these deaths and job losses concentrated in black and minority communities, “said Biden. “And they speak to a nation where millions of people every day – not the moment they lose their lives – but throughout their lives – they say” I can’t breathe. “
