Yeah he might.

One of Joe Biden’s most high-profile supporters in New Hampshire warned the candidate during a one-on-one exchange Friday that he and his campaign need to make immediate changes to win the first-in-the-nation primary.

Lou D’Allesandro, the longest-serving state senator and highest-ranking elected official in the state who’s endorsed Biden, spoke with the candidate before a town hall event here. D’Allesandro was blunt in his advice: Listen more. Talk less. Answer succinctly. Get your campaign operation organized.

“I told him that he’s gotta energize his speeches, and they need to be shorter and more to the point,” D’Allesandro said. “He’s gotta zero in on things and address them, and address them succinctly.”

“Yes, I know that,” Biden replied, according to D’Allesandro.

D’Allesandro, who is known as the lion of New Hampshire’s senate, was so concerned he drove more than an hour to get a word in with Biden.

The candidate then held an hour-long town hall that some attendees, including D’Allesandro, described as sleepy at times.

“He went a little too long,” D’Allesandro said afterward. “It’s heartfelt, I understand that. But indeed the people want to hear what you are going to do for them.”

There are multiple reports that Biden’s ground game is lacking and that he is just not inspiring people with his message. 

One top Democrat characterized some of his events as a “clusterfuck.” 

Losing New Hampshire does not predict the eventual winner of the nomination.

Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire in 2008 and Bernie Sanders won in 2016. 

However winning there can also give candidates a boost that carries them all the way to victory. 

Just as the “comeback kid” Bill Clinton. 

P.S. If you are wondering who Biden’s main competition is in New Hampshire I think that this about sums that up.

That right there is EXACTLY what Joe Biden is lacking.
