VP Joe Biden made his case for why Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
On Sunday’s State of the Union, host Jake Tapper asked Vice President Joe Biden why Hillary Clinton did “so poorly with white working class voters.” (Some exit polls indicate Trump won white voters without a college degree by around 40 points).
Biden, who Tapper noted is known for his connection to the middle class as a “son of Scranton,” said that Democrats “don’t show enough respect” to working- and middle-class people.
Biden added his familiar line about a job being about more than a paycheck, but also “about your dignity.” He concluded by suggesting that Clinton never spoke to those voters in this election, “and I think we paid a price for it.”
Biden is seen as a possible presidential candidate in 2020, after passing on a challenge to Clinton in 2016.
