With former Vice President Joe Biden still leading the crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips paid a visit to Detroit and asked Democratic voters outside the venue for the second round of debates one simple question:

Can they name a Biden accomplishment?

The breakdown

The interview query seemed to catch most folks by surprise — after which they had a lot of trouble coming up with valid answers. Or any answer.

  • "I don't know."
  • "No."
  • "I don't know of a specific accomplishment of his," one woman replied. "I know there are things that he can put his name and say, 'Well, this was done while i was in office, this was done while i was in office.'"
  • "I'll be honest with you, I'm drawing a blank on what he accomplished," a man replied before adding that Biden "fought for America."
  • "Health care," another woman said, adding Biden was "very instrumental with that." (Uh, really?)
  • "I don't know if i have an answer for that."
  • One man pointed out Biden's "years of service ... and more recently he served with very much distinction with [former President Barack] Obama."
  • Another woman opined that "he's an honest and a decent man, and that to me speaks volumes."
  • "I don't know," one guy said. "I really wasn't prepared for that question, clearly."

And there was more Obama coat-tailing:

  • "Being vice president," one observer said, adding that Biden has "staying power."
  • "His greatest accomplishment was being the vice president for Obama," another guy said.

Democratic voter priorities

Along with his Biden question, Phillips also asked the Democratic voters about their priorities when it comes to naming a challenger to President Donald Trump. Survey says:

  • The economy
  • Health care
  • Climate change
  • Legalization of marijuana

And of course, putting "anybody but Trump" in office.
