Often maligned for speaking too frankly, Vice President Joe Biden's reputation for shooting from the lip might be one of his biggest weapons if he does decide to run against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.Reuters spoke to 22 of the poll respondents who said they would support Biden.According to Quinnipiac polls, 64 percent of voters surveyed in August said Clinton is not honest and trustworthy – up from 54 percent in April.It is late in the nomination contest and Biden is still way behind both Clinton and liberal Senator Bernie Sanders.Only 13.3 percent of 690 Democrats in the Reuters/Ipsos online survey backed Biden while 47 percent supported Clinton and 24.9 percent were for Sanders, who has been attracting much larger crowds than Clinton.All the same, the fact that Biden might be considering a run compounds Clinton's headaches.Though Clinton has wide policy experience, Biden's 36 years in the Senate and almost two terms as vice president count in his favor among supporters.
