Vice President Biden may have been hinting at a 2016 presidential run today. At a stop, he was handed a phone by a supporter, who asked him to talk to her Republican brother. The two got into a debate, until the Vice President ended the conversation. He ended it saying, “After it’s all over, when your insurance rates go down, then you’ll vote for me in 2016.”
The latest poll from Marquette University has a eight point lead for the President. The poll interviewed 1,243 likely voters in Paul Ryan’s home state. After Rep. Ryan was announced, there were hopes that Romney could win the battleground state. However, most polls continue to show a lead for President Obama.
Green Party nominee Jill Stein has been arrested. She was attempting to deliver supplies to Keystone pipeline protesters, when police arrested her. The opponents of the highly controversial oil pipeline have camped out in the trees. Jill Stein has recently tried to use Superstorm Sandy to her advantage, saying that climate change is a bigger issue than thought, and that she is the right one to deal with it.
