Iowa Caucuses: Biden and Feb

iowa caucuses: Four surprises Surprise number one was Biden's clear victory in the South Carolina primary election on Feb. 29, according to The Japan Times. Having suffered a string of losses in the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3, the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 11 and the Nevada caucuses on Feb. 22 Biden was literally up against the wall and would have had to withdraw from the presidential contest had he lost in South Carolina. And these unexpected developments pose four significant challenges to the new administration beginning on Jan. 20, 2021, regardless of whether the election is won by the incumbent, President Donald Trump, or his rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. But thanks to the support of African-American congressman Jim Clyburn and African-American voters, Biden made a miraculous comeback and won decisively with 49 percent of the popular vote. ; Surprise number two is that by Super Tuesday on March 3, Biden had succeeded not only in winning several key state primaries but also in securing the endorsement of many of his erstwhile Democratic rivals, including Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Mike Bloomberg, Tom Steyer and Beto O'Rourke. Rather, most observers had expected a deeply divided party going into the national convention then scheduled for July 13-16 with even the possibility of a brokered convention. Few had predicted this kind of unity behind one candidate so early in the primary season. ( As reported in the news.
