The national headquarters in the City of Brotherly Love will have about 50 staffers to start - a number that could grow as the campaign heats up, and especially if Biden wins the Democratic nomination, according to the Inquirer.

(CNN)Former Vice President Joe Biden will base his presidential campaign in Philadelphia - a move that highlights his personal ties to Pennsylvania and showcases the state's importance in the 2020 race.

A formal announcement is expected Thursday, just ahead of Biden's rally at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Saturday. The former vice president also chose Pennsylvania as the location for his first campaign event - a speech at a union hall in Pittsburgh - after declaring his candidacy late last month.

"Democrats know why they lost" in 2016, Luntz said. "Its storied history and celebrated diversity will serve as an inspiration for Team Biden, and is the ideal setting to continue our fight for the soul of this nation".

Biden went on to represent DE for almost four decades in the U.S. Senate before serving as President Barack Obama's vice president.

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also beats the president, with 46 percent against 41 percent for Trump.

He also argued President Donald Trump can not win the general election with his base alone, and Democrats will not repeat the same mistakes as 2016, putting up more of a fight in rust belt states Trump snatched.

Luntz reasoned: "Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida".

The independent Quinnipiac University poll finds a wider gap between the two among women and non-white voters.
