According to Pete Hegseth, the presidential hopefuls of former Vice President Joe Biden fade after a new poll showed him a virtual link with two progressive candidates.
Biden's campaign appeared to be largely based on his potential to defeat President Trump in the 2020 general election – but with two other candidates appearing to erase his lead, the point becomes moot, Hegseth said Monday in "The Five" .
"I think Biden has finished," he said, pointing to a Monmouth University poll showing Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., at the head of the Democratic group with 20% each, while the former vice-president counted at 19%.
"I never thought that he had a chance from the beginning, he managed to sell his best seller, and his best seller is" I can beat Trump "."

"If voters start saying," Can he? "- He's there – he's finished," said weekend host "Fox & Friends".
"And that's what's starting to seep into their minds." He's not in tune with his party, it's not a "moderate" moment at all. . "
