Joe Biden, good guy or court jester?

After a term serving as Vice President of the United States, the public has two very disparate views of Joe Biden.

On the bright side, a new poll from The Washington Post and the Pew Research Center shows words such as “good,” “honest,” “vice president” and “OK” are among the most common single-word descriptions of Biden.

But wide segments of the public also see him less as a statesman and perhaps more as a court jester. [cont.]
