"I don't think it's even going to be close," he told WABC radio's Rita Cosby after his speech at the Democratic National Convention late Wednesday.


“I felt good about it,” he added of Clinton’s chances, according to Politico, which first reported his comments. "We started talking about the things that are consequential and the issues." 

Biden earlier Wednesday delivered a forceful takedown of Trump, the Republican nominee.

“No major-party nominee in the history of this nation has ever known less or has been less prepared to deal with our national security. Donald Trump and all his rhetoric would literally make us less safe.”

Biden, who called himself a “middle-class Joe,” added that Trump would be a disastrous pick for American workers.

“He’s trying to tell us he cares about the middle class?” Biden asked. "Give me a break. That’s a bunch of malarkey.

“This guy doesn’t have a clue about the middle class, not a clue,” he added to applause. "Actually, he has no clue, period.”

Democrats on Tuesday formally nominated Clinton for the presidency, setting up a showdown with Trump this November.
