Joe Biden is preparing to appoint a team of advisors who will help him select a Vice President, stating that he’ll have the team in place by May 1st.
The former Vice President said as such during an appearance on ‘The Late Late Show’ with James Corden on Wednesday.
Biden has previously pledged to appoint a woman as his Vice President, placing an emphasis on the gender identity of his running mate over actual policy. Loyal establishment Democrats such as Amy Klobuchar and Kamala Harris have been touted as likely contenders for Biden’s vice presidential nominee. Biden’s insistence on a female running mate could be a convenient rebuff to calls for him to place New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on the ticket, who some Democrats are hoping will eventually replace Biden at the Democratic convention.
The list of potential running mates touted by supposed campaign insiders largely come from Biden’s wing of the Democratic Party, suggesting that the party establishment figure is uninclined to balance out the ticket by selecting a Democrat from the progressive wing of the party.
Biden stated that his campaign expects to narrow down the candidates for the vice presidential slot to two or three contenders by late July, suggesting that he’s not nearing a decision on his running mate in the immediate future. The Democratic convention is scheduled for August, although the premise of physical political conventions appears to be more in doubt than ever on account of the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
Polls for the Presidential Election Are Tightening, And Fast
This race is getting hot.
New polls for the November presidential election are gravitating in President Donald Trump’s direction, after months of polling that indicated Democratic challenger Joe Biden was dominating the race.
Polls from Rasmussen and the Hill have indicated that the race is close, and even within the margin of error, with the President regaining several percentage points. Polling aggregator RealClearPolitics reveals that recent polls show the President has gained 3-5 percent support.

Polls in battleground states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania show a race that is statistically tied. A Zogby Analytics poll of North Carolina, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania showed a razor-thin race in the latter three states, with Biden leading by no more than three percentage points in all of them.
Trump’s gain in recent rounds of polling may be a product of a refocused campaign strategy, with the President branching out to the constituency of white working class voters that proved essential to his shock 2016 election victory after former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reassigned.
Razor-thin election margins could mean the election is once again decided by the electoral college, as Biden’s lead in national polling places undue consideration on large margins of victory in reliably Democratic states such as California and New York.
Biden has been reluctant to appear in public, scheduling only a handful of events in which he’s received questions from the press. The President’s increasingly focused coronavirus press briefings may have signaled his intention to successfully control the pandemic.
