The fact that a two time loser has a double digit lead over his competitors speaks volumes on how horrible the Dem party is. This guy couldn't make headwaves in 1988 when Dukakis was the frontrunner. Dukakis may have been the worst candidate in my lifetime. In 2008, he was never in the picture. If he wasn't Obama's bitch, he wouldn't even be running for the office.

I never really like the guy's politics or his personality.

He has a couple of things going for him.
1. As already mentioned, he gets a rub for being the VP of a very charismatic President.

2. In a field of crazed socialist liberals, his policies are sane by comparison.

3. Trump's personality alienates a percentage of the population even if he has a long list of accomplishments.

He also has a few things working against him. If he stays moderate, he will alienate the woke crowd. They may take their ball and go elsewhere like they did when Hillary beat Bernie. If he goes left to appease the libs, he might alienate centrist Independents. He has a tough balancing act. He is going to have to answer for a lot of his previous stances, such as the 94 Crime Bill. Also, he seems to have really aged these last few years. Can he take an onslaught of shots from the 83 Dem candidates? If he gets the nom, can he do three or four campaign shows a day like Trump?
