Joe Biden got the first question of tonight’s debate in New Hampshire and he used his time to admit he’s going to lose:
.@JoeBiden gets the first question of the night and acknowledges that he’s not likely to win in New Hampshire.
“I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here,” Biden says and stresses he views the first four states as a starting point.

#DemDebate Asked about his 4th place finish in Iowa, @JoeBiden said he took a hit in Iowa & will probably take a hit in New Hampshire. He said @BernieSanders has called himself Democrat Socialist which is a risk to the party & that @PeteButtigieg was a small city mayor. @CBSDFW

“Falls on his face” right out of the gate!
Whoah. Biden falls on his face, sealing his fate with a disaster response to the first question. #DemDebate

Biden went on to hit Senator Bernie Sanders and Mayor Pete Buttigieg:
As expected, Biden immediately lays out why Sanders & Buttigieg should not be on the top of the Democratic ticket.
On Sanders: Biden says Trump will take down a "Democratic Socialist"
On Buttigieg: Biden says he won't pull in minority support like African Americans & Latinos

He really doesn’t look like he wants to be here:
"I didn't perform well in Iowa and I'm going to lose here too." #Inspiring
He reminded me of the basketball coach in Teen Wolf: Look at it this way guys, it'll all be over with in a couple hours.
