I don't claim to know a lot about Joe, but I do know that he was raised by a single mother, and managed to get elected to the U.S. Senate at the tender age of 29. This alone has puzzled me, as he doesn't strike me as the type of guy who is that much of a go getter.
He has also been in the senate for 6 terms, and is now the sitting VP, so I figured he must have amassed a sizeable nest egg over the years. I did a google search, and it turns out I'm wrong.
His net woth is about $215k, which is much, much smaller than I would ever guess.
I have also learned that he was a practicing lawyer, with his own firm, prior to running for the senate at age 29. I'm really puzzled as to how someone who has what it takes to get through college and law school, have his own law firm, get elected to senate at such an early age, doesn't have the money sense to do better than this.
Either he's an extremely honest man, a very poor thief, a very poor money manager, or especially good at hiding his assets. I'm ruling out the first option.
You can do a google search on "joe biden net worth" and find a number of hits.
