Democratic Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden kicked off his tour of Iowa with a new slogan that has mixed reactions from voters.
Iowans are both a bit confused and intrigued by the campaigns new slogan, "No Malarkey."
As VP Biden's bus tours through eighteen counties across the state this week, young voters are reported to be confused by the new slogan.
Politico reported that some negative responses to Biden's slogan "highlights a potential problem with a term that Biden has put at the center of his candidacy in the first-in-the-nation caucus state. And some of the complaints about it are an extension of how Biden skeptics feel about the candidate himself" (Politico).
Many voters claim "they don’t quite get it" (Politico), which could put Biden further out of touch with young voters. Additionally, "Biden was mocked all weekend on social media for the slogan, with detractors saying it highlighted his disconnect with voters."
While Biden competes with Buttigieg who is high in the Iowa polls, his new slogan may not illicit the response he needs to get ahead in the polls.
