Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday said that judging by the state of the Republican presidential primary, Ronald Reagan himself would not be able to win the nomination.

“If Ronald Reagan were alive today seeking the nomination he could no more get the nomination of the Republican party than I could,” Biden said in a question and answer session following a meeting with the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates. “I’m not joking. What you see is this movement to the extreme in the Republican party.”
