He doesn’t really like man. The bad news for Biden, according to the latest poll by the US Democracy Institute voters, is that most voters think Trump was too weak, and Biden largely AWOL, about the protests and unrest still going on in the city . However, the bad news for Biden is that the majority of voters think he is literally losing his mind. Literally.
When voters think you are experiencing the early stages of dementia, you may still like them, they may feel increasingly sorry for you, but they also threaten to derail your apparent walk (according to most American media polls) to a victory autumn.
Between today and election day, the factor that will most influence the end result will be the debates between President Trump and his democratic opponent.
If Biden regains some of his past skills to overcome these encounters with moderate and trivial comments released with a smile, a little humor and Everyman’s behavior, he will keep good chances of enjoying a very competitive election.
But, if Biden had even one “senior moment”, during which he forgets what he’s saying, or where he is, or the question he is asked, his chances of beating Trump will be somewhere between thin and nobody.
Joe Biden seen by voters as “AWOL”
The mainstream American media that support Biden will not play the alarming clip in a seemingly endless loop, as Trump should similarly do.
However, Fox News will do just that, and the Fox News audience will reduce that of its competitors.
In addition, Trump’s campaign is so loaded with money that he is spending $ 100 million through television, radio, online and digital platforms to drown Americans in Biden’s alleged cognitive decline.
If Biden were to perform in each of the debates as he has done so far in most of his meetings with the media, written by script, Trump could win in a landslide.
Excluding the collapse of the Biden debate, our survey brings elements of good news for the Democratic candidate.
He remains generally well-liked and is seen as sincerely wishing everyone to get along with each other in the way they behaved in the good days (now considered by many pretty bad Democrats) before Barack Obama became president.
The Biden campaign can continue to exploit Trump’s political vulnerability in the management of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In cold-blooded political terms, the greater the perceived danger from an increase in coronavirus cases, the more likely voters will view the election as a referendum on the incumbent president, which will neutralize some, perhaps many, of Trump’s benefits.
It will also strengthen Biden’s image as a calm pair of hands to place the keys of the White House and, above all, the keys to the presidential nuclear codes.
In this sense, most media outlets are doing Biden’s hard work for him.
After dropping the pandemic cover from wall to wall for two weeks while applauding the national protest movement, the media returned to covering the pandemic with renewed taste.
No voter is unaware that coronavirus cases are on the rise, although many are unaware that fewer Americans are dying in most affected states.
Donald Trump “too soft”, say US voters
A more prevalent virus with, in critical terms, less fatal consequences would be relatively good news for Trump’s reelection effort.
It is a narrative that the Biden campaign and its media allies will challenge every day until November.
The other referendum question requested by Biden will concern Trump’s economic management.
Democrats won’t talk about the pre-pandemic economic recovery because that superb economy has almost guaranteed Trump’s reelection.
Biden needs most voters to be very anxious, if not downright injured, economically for at least another 16 weeks.
If they are, which would likely guarantee a return to a freeze state in many states, it will be difficult for Trump to prove that he has repaired the American economy for the second time in a single term.
Biden “needs voters to harm financially”
While potential new blocs are a political cloud on Trump’s election horizon, the dark cloud hovering over Biden’s candidacy is how the US economy is already recovering from its deep dive earlier this year.
Not only are jobs, housing, restaurants, bars, shops and the stock market going up, but the growing economy is occurring much earlier than experts predicted.
And voters have noticed and are growing optimistic on this issue.
Economic historians may discuss President John F. Kennedy’s famous claim that “a rising tide lifts all boats”.
The indisputable thing is that an economic high tide in the next four months would certainly bring Donald Trump to a second term.
