Joe Biden to announce 2016 decision within 48 hours – reports

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is expected to make an announcement on whether he will run for president within the next 48 hours, according to media reports.

NBC News, citing sources close to the vice president, reported on Monday morning that Biden would announce his decision within the next 48 hours. The network said Biden is expected to announce his decision publicly, though it had no indication whether he would in fact join the race or not. Previous reports from other news organizations had indicated that a decision was imminent.

Biden, who lost his son to cancer earlier this year, has been considering a potential presidential bid for months, but he has repeatedly said he did not know whether he has the emotional energy needed to mount a presidential campaign. "Unless I can go to my party and the American people and say that I am able to devote my whole heart and my whole soul to this endeavor it would not be appropriate [to run]," Biden said in September.

Despite the uncertainty of a Biden run, the vice president's popularity has continued to increase, with some Democratic donors publicly calling on Biden to join the race.
