Former Vice President Joe Biden has kept a busy schedule of public appearances since leaving office which has led to speculation that he will run for president in 2020, according to The Hill.

As he has made the rounds, he has commented on the possibility.

"I may very well do it… at this point, no one in my family or I have made the judgment to run," Biden said Friday at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, The Hill reports.

In April, at a state party dinner in New Hampshire, Biden said, according to The Hill: "When I got asked to speak, I knew it was going to cause speculation… Guys, I'm not running."

Back in January during an appearance on "The View," Biden said he had "no intention of running for president, but I do have the intention to stay deeply involved in everything I've done my whole life," The Hill reported.

The former vice president has not made definite plans, according to Steve Schale, a former campaign aide for President Barack Obama.

"I don't think he knows what he's going to do, honestly," Schale told The Hill — but added that he has not spoken to Biden since Christmas.

The former vice president has been providing support for Democratic races around the country. He campaigned for a state senator in Delaware, helping preserve Democratic control in that state. Next, he plans to work with a Democratic gubernatorial candidate in New Jersey, according to The Hill.

A Public Policy Polling survey released on May 16 suggests that Biden would have a good chance against President Donald Trump — 54 percent to 40 percent edge over the president.

Americans must "regain our sense of unity and purpose," Biden said Sunday at a commencement address in Maine.

"It's time for us to start realizing who in God's name we are."
