    The caucuses in Iowa are less than four months away, and Vice President Joe Biden’s long will-he-run-won’t-he-run drama may be hurting his chances in the early battleground state as his rivals are progressively solidifying their campaign infrastructures

    As Biden mulls whether to jump into the presidential race, the rest of the Democratic field are securing commitments from activists around Iowa, NBC News reported.

    "I'm for Hillary because Joe Biden hasn't started raising money, and he hasn't said anything about a platform," Gloria Gardner, 63, a retired Wal-Mart clerk in Council Bluffs, said on Wednesday. "I think it's too late for him if he even tried. And I don't know if his heart is really in it."

    The Draft Biden effort has just two paid staffers on the ground compared to Hillary Clinton's 78 and Sanders' 60 organizers.
