Analysis: Biden positions himself as leading moderate
WASHINGTON (AP) — Joe Biden bought himself time. It’s unclear how much.
Biden’s victory in South Carolina on Saturday was emphatic enough to let him make the claim that it had reordered the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. He can now credibly argue he is the overwhelming favorite of black voters who are the backbone of the Democratic Party. And he is positioning himself as moderates’ best alternative to blocking Bernie Sanders’ path to the nomination.
