Joe Biden was born on November 20, 1942, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. His father, Joseph Biden Sr., worked for a living by cleaning appliances. He also had a job as a car salesperson. His father instilled a life long work ethic in him. Joe's mother was Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Finnegan. Biden went to St. Paul's Elementary School in Scranton. In 1955, the family moved to Mayfield, Delaware. A white-collar working class was being bolstered by the DuPont company.
When Barack Obama won the Democratic Presidential nomination after campaigning against Hilary Clinton, he picked Joe Biden as his running mate for vice president. With his working-class roots, Biden helped the Obama campaign pass on its message of monetary recuperation to swing states like Ohio and Pennsylvania. On November 2, 2008, Barack Obama and Joe Biden convincingly squashed the Republican ticket of Arizona Senator John McCain and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. On January 20, 2009, Obama was elected as the 44th U.S. president and Biden took his place as the 47th Vice President.
In 2019, Joe Biden announced his plan to run for president in 2020. In June 2019, he experienced some backlash from the public when he said that he bolstered the Hyde Amendment which requires the prohibition on government financing for untimely births. After the negative feedback, he changed his position and asserted that he never again was supporting it. Pundits asserted that his difference in his stances was shallow and not a genuine impression of his qualities. He asserted that he altered his perspective since he didn't support what Alabama did a month sooner when they restricted abortins.
In May 2020, a Marquette Law School survey came out with results showing that Vice President Joe Biden had a 46% to 43% lead over President Donald Trump in Wisconsin. After Bernie Sanders conceded the Democratic nomination to Joe Biden, the majority of Democratic voters pushed their support behind Biden. The three-point lead came as a shock to political analysts because they thought Donald Trump's mishandling of the response to the coronavirus crisis would have reduced his support.
Joe Biden has been happily married to his second wife, Jill Biden. They got married in 1977. The couple's daughter, Ashley, was born in 1981. On May 30, 2015, Biden suffered adversity when his child Beau passed away after fighting cancer.
Following the personal tragedy, Biden was thought of as a choice to run for the Democratic party presidential nomination in October 2015. He immediately set out to settle the murmurs when he proclaimed that he would not run for the 2016 Democratic nomination. In the White House Rose Garden with his life partner Jill and President Obama close by, Biden made his presentation, suggesting his child's passing as the explanation that he would not pursue a run for President.
