NEW YORK (Reuters) - A prominent Democratic donor worried about the party's chances of winning the presidency emailed dozens of fans of Vice President Joe Biden on Friday, urging them to remain prepared to donate if Biden jumps into the race.

The donor, Bill Bartmann, cited new polling showing Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont nearly tied with the Hillary Clinton, eroding the 30-point lead the former secretary of state held at the end of last year. Bartmann and other party insiders are concerned that Sanders, a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist, is too far to the left to win against a Republican in the Nov. 8 presidential election.

"We cannot afford to lose the White House," Bartmann wrote in the email, seen by Reuters.

The email drew a string of affirmative responses, also seen by Reuters.

Biden announced in October that he would not seek the presidency, despite support from a group of backers under the name "Draft Biden 2016." But whispers have continued among some donors who hope that Biden could be convinced to run after all should Clinton’s campaign prove fruitless.

"My sitting on the sidelines has a lot to do with my disappointment that the vice president decided not to get in the race," Patrick Baskette, one of the recipients of Bartmann's email, told Reuters. Baskette, a public affairs consultant in Tampa, Florida, was a special assistant to Biden during his time as a senator.

Baskette said he was not opposed to either Clinton or Sanders. "I don't think that they offer the solutions to our nation's future that Joe Biden does," he added.

Clinton only barely squeaked out a win against Sanders in the Iowa caucus this week, adding to fears that she could lose a nomination that once was thought all but inevitable for her. Clinton is widely expected to lose the New Hampshire primary to Sanders on Tuesday.

"Count me in," Gary Hindes, chief executive of the Delaware Bay Company LLC and a former chairman of the Delaware Democratic Party, wrote on the email chain.

"I am hoping that the stars line up right and that Joe becomes the nominee," Hindes said to Reuters. "Sanders is too far to the left," he added, saying Clinton could be vulnerable as well.

"My heart is with Joe," Hindes said.

I highly doubt Joe is going to step in.

I dont think he is presidential material by a long shot but you have to admit he would be fun hanging around.
Seems like a really fun type of guy if you ask me.

Joe does not want it!

Bloomberg is the next choice and it depends how the GOP primary goes you might see Trump go third party because of Cruz dirty dealings in Iowa!

No way the party infrastructure is going to run an old socialist.
If Bernie wins the primary, there will be a bloodbath at the convention. Calls for Biden, Kerry and or Gore will be heard.

If Bernie somehow survives that, (fat chance) Michael Bloomberg will jump in and run as an Independent.

I actually heard it and I think it was on NBC Today but could be incorrect, but he will not jump in. Plan B will be Bloomberg to run to derail Sanders if Hillary loses the nomination and I am going to say Cruz might have made Trump a true enemy and if Cruz win the GOP nomination I would not be surprised to see Trump run on a third party ticket...

Considering how close the race is, no doubt he does regret it.

He likely thought Clinton had it in a walk too

Recalling that all liberals lie I was convinced upon Plugs' first denial that he WOULD be the Democrat Party nominee.

I still might be wrong but the odds are shifting, day-by-day, in my favour.
