Walt Disney Company (The) (NYSE:DIS), (PARA) – How is Joe Biden’s March Madness support doing after his Alma Mater Delaware is knocked out?

President Joe Biden won’t win the perfect March Madness bracket challenge or likely win any NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament pools.

Here’s a look at how Biden’s support is doing during the first weekend of games and heading into the Sweet 16 games.

What happened: Biden continued a tradition started by the former president barack obama which has seen US Presidents make their selections for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Biden did not make a support for last year’s tournament and the 2020 tournament was not played due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Former president donald trump refused to make parentheses and continue the tradition started by Obama.

Biden selected his alma mater the University of Delaware to win the entire tournament as the No. 15 seed, which was never accomplished. The support was signed by Biden with the words “Keep the faith” and shared on Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR).

Biden also picked the No. 13-seeded University of Delaware women’s team to win the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.

“I am proud of all the athletes participating in this year’s NCAA Tournament. But at the end of the day, I’m a @UDelaware guy. Go blue hens! Biden tweeted.

Biden Support Ranking: Biden’s chance for a perfect slice ended relatively quickly on Thursday, March 17, with the No. 9-seeded Memphis Tigers winning Game 3 of the tournament and handing Biden his first loss.

Biden went on to post a 21-12 record in first-round matches. The second round saw Biden post a 9-7 record and get nine of the remaining 16 teams correct.

In the first two rounds of the tournament, Biden would have 390 points on the Tournament Challenge by ESPN, a unit of Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS). That puts Biden in the 61.7 percentile, beating the majority of brackets submitted during the Tournament Challenge.

The rest of the tournament could prove awkward for Biden with the Delaware Blue Hens losing to Villanova 80-60 in the first round in a game seen on CBS, a unit of World Paramount (NASDAQ: PARA)(NASDAQ: PARAA).

Biden also lost to No. 2 seed Kentucky of the Final Four. The team was a popular crowd pick with 13% of ESPN Tournament Challenge brackets having the Wildcats in the Final Four, making them the fourth most popular team to advance this far in the tournament.

Biden’s other two Final Four selections, Gonzaga and Wisconsin, remain alive in the tournament and were selected by 41.7% and 3.4%, respectively, of ESPN Tournament Challenge competitors.

Going forward, the best Biden can do is get five of eight Elite 8 teams, two Final Four teams and one team in the Finals.

The ESPN Tournament Challenge leaderboard shows seven people with 570 points and 13 with 560 points to lead the way.

By mid-Friday in the first round, there were no perfect brackets left, ending the impossible 1 in 9.2 quintillion chance of accomplishing the feat.
