Vice President Joe Biden still hasn’t said whether he will join the Democratic race for president in 2016, but one very well-placed observer is convinced he will.
News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch tweeted on Monday that Biden already appears to be running and will likely win the nomination. He didn’t elaborate.
Looks like Biden already running. Very likely he wins nomination and be hard to beat.

Biden has been the subject of speculation recently as front-runner Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers have suffered amid questions about the private email server she used as secretary of state. He has declined to give an answer as to whether he is in fact running, but has noted privately that he still is recovering from the death in the spring of his son, Beau.
Biden is currently polling third to Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, but a candidate often gets a poll bump once he or she becomes a declared candidate.
