The Democratic presidential candidate also said that Johnson was able to win because the rival Labour Party had moved too far left. 

"Boris Johnson is winning in a walk,” Biden said Thursday, predicting that headlines would say, “Look what happens when the Labour Party moves so, so far to the left. It comes up with ideas that are not able to be contained within a rational basis quickly.”

“You’re also going to see people saying, my god, Boris Johnson, who is kind of a physical and emotional clone of the president, is able to win,” Biden added. 

Biden has positioned himself as a more centrist candidate, different from other front-runners such as Sens.

The former vice president made the comments during a South San Francisco fundraiser hosted by technology entrepreneur Jon Fisher and clothing boutique owner Darla Fisher, who are married. 

About 40 donors attended the event held at South San Francisco’s National Bioskills Laboratories.

Biden is among the top contenders in the crowded Democratic presidential field, consistently polling in the top spot in the run up to the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary.
