Joe Biden will appear for an interview on “Fox News Sunday” — his first with the conservative network during this presidential election cycle — as he strains to regain steam ahead of Super Tuesday.
The former vice president, once the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary, has not appeared on the Chris Wallace-hosted Sunday program since 2007.
Biden was badly beaten in the first three primary and caucus contests, finishing fourth in Iowa and a humiliating fifth in New Hampshire.
After a distant second-place finish in Nevada, polls show Biden poised for his first win in the South Carolina primary on Saturday, potentially allowing him to build momentum into Tuesday’s 14 state contests.
Biden’s poor performances in early states jeopardized his standing as the leading moderate alternative to socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who has won the popular votes in each of the first three races.
As Biden faltered, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has risen in national polls, fueled by a massive ad campaign despite suffering his own blows with poorly rated debate performances.
Unlike early-voting states, Bloomberg will be on Super Tuesday ballots and will directly compete with Biden and other candidates for more centrist voters.
The outcome of voting next week in delegate-rich California, Texas, North Carolina, Massachusetts and Virginia may determine if Sanders is stoppable in his quest for a leftwing political “revolution” that concerns establishment Democrats, who fear President Trump will be reelected in a landslide.
