Biden: Blue Collar Rust Belt Voters 'Love Me More' Than Trump

Former Vice President Joe Biden defended his potential presidential bid Monday, saying he has more support among blue collar workers in the Rust Belt than President Donald Trump.

"You’re going to be 77 in 2020," "Today" host Megyn Kelly said to Biden in an interview Monday morning. “You wouldn’t have any new ideas. You’ve already run twice and lost. You’d have to promise that it would be one term only. And the blue collar Rust Belt-ers who you’d need to get elected already love Donald Trump.”

Biden paused for a moment, then said, “They love me more.”

This was met with cheers from the studio audience before he continued.

"I understand the Rust Belt," Biden said. "Donald Trump has no notion what those people going through. If you take a look — it’s not a criticism, it’s an observation — because look, but for 77,000 votes now, this would be a different race. Come on, let’s take a look at this."

He added, "They call me 'Middle Class Joe.' Well, it’s not meant as a compliment in Washington. It means I’m not sophisticated. But I understand. I understand what built this country. And the only thing I know is the middle class, their hopes, their aspirations. Because it’s where I come from. It’s what I am."
