Former US Vice President Joe Biden, who had previously lost in the Democratic internal elections in Iowa and New Hampshire, was unable to enlist the support of Democrats in a third consecutive state.
According to CNN, Biden, who was considered one of the main competitors of the incumbent Republican President Donald Trump, took second place, gaining 19.2% on focuses in Nevada.
He is noticeably behind his party member Bernie Sanders, who received 46.6% of the vote of party activists. He won the primaries in New Hampshire.
In third place is Pete Buttigieg, the ex-mayor of South Bend (Indiana), who won in Iowa, with 15.4%. He is followed by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (10.3%) and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar (4.5%).
Recall that back in the fall, political scientists unanimously called Joe Biden the main rival of Trump from the Democrats. However, after an attempt by his party members in the US Congress to impeach the 45th president, Biden's ratings rushed down.
The Democratic Party was unable to send him to resign, and Trump announced the involvement of Joe Biden and his son, who worked for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, in corruption.
