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 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.
