Summary

The expectation-setting is typical of campaigns, who have a lot of incentive to avoid a spiral of negative news coverage if their candidate does not perform up to expectations.But it's an especially tricky prospect for Biden, who has been running at the top of the polls for more than a year now.The effort to manage expectations for Biden in Iowa underscores the precarious nature of his frontrunner status, particularly amid the rise of Sanders, whose supporters have an intensity and enthusiasm that Biden has been unable to match.The problem, some Biden allies say, is that expectations for most of the candidates besides Sanders are also low, potentially setting up another moderate candidate, such as Buttigieg or Sen.
