In the end, Joe Biden, who bills himself as the most electable candidate in the 2020 US Democratic presidential field, could not convince nearly enough Iowans that he is the best person to take on President Donald Trump in November.

That disconnect between rosy poll numbers and the lack of enthusiasm on the ground is emblematic of the single biggest question that has dogged Biden’s campaign from the start: Can a77-year-old white male moderate who spent more than 40 years in Washington excite Democrats increasingly eager for bold change?

Biden must also account for the success of Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who provided a fresh face to voters looking for a moderate candidate and who made agenerational argument that it was time to look past Biden's era of leadership. "The point is, I count the four. The first four are th ekey," Biden told reporters in Concord, New Hampshire, yesterday.For the moment, however, Biden must endure a new round of questions about electability.
