No matter how you line them up, this is going to be a presidential nomination race for the ages. In the end, it's going to come down to who the party thinks can beat Donald Trump in this year's election.
Can Joe Biden's middle of the road, establishment background win him votes from those that Trump has alienated? Or does Bernie Sanders have a better shot at beating Trump because he'll bring out the young voters?

Biden vs. Bernie on the issues that matter most to voters
Don't know who you want to vote for yet? Now is the time to get up to speed on where the candidates stand on issues that matter most to you. Bernie Sanders has unquestionably been the more consistent of the two candidates, still promotion the same political positions he's had since the 1960s. Sanders is a self proclaimed democratic socialist, a term that has scared away many less educated voters who don't understand the differences between democratic socialism and communism. Bernie is well positioned as a candidate of the people, which is a stark contrast from his rival Joe Biden.
Biden is the establishment candidate, known best for his previous experience as Vice President under Barack Obama. While this experience helps gain the confidence of voters, it also comes with some issues. Previous controversial statements, positions and policies where Biden has since changed his rhetoric show a lack of consistency.
The Democratic Nominee vs. Donald Trump
There is no question that both Biden and Bernie are more fit for office than Donald, but there is still a good chance that Trump wins yet again in 2020.
