WASHINGTON - The drumbeat for Joe Biden to jump into the 2016 presidential race is growing louder.

Almost half of US Democrats want the vice president to enter the field and challenge front-runner Hillary Clinton, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The results come as speculation surrounding Biden's intentions has intensified, with reports having him close to a decision.

The declared Democratic presidential candidates, including Clinton and US Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, her closest rival, will take the stage Tuesday night in Las Vegas for the first party debate.

Biden will not be there, but 48 percent of Democrats surveyed in the Reuters poll wish he were a candidate, compared with 30 percent who said he should stay out. Independents were split on the question, with 36 percent saying Biden should stay in and an equal share believing otherwise.
