Trump and Biden election news and recap from 2020

Election 2020 is just a memory now. So, this is the right time to look back at some of the differences between the candidates. As each candidate made ambitious and appealing promises, only one would inevitably win the presidency

The presidential election 2020 scheduled for November 3rd, 2020. Before the final round, all the White House aspirants were actively engaging with the public, trying their best to win their hearts so that they could confirm their ticket to the Oval Office.

Among all the candidates, Joe Biden and Donald Trump are the highlights of the election campaign. If you don’t know who they are, Joe Biden is the Democratic candidate for the elections 2020, whereas Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for the United States’ 46th President.

Both the candidates had been campaigning for months. One side, Joe Biden, the country’s Vice Present from 2009 to 2017, presses the public to vote for him if they want record investments in the American industry. On the other hand, Donal Trump, America’s current president, takes pride in the country’s significant financial recovery during his tenure. And promises the nation even more significant economic achievements if he gets another chance to serve his people.

Who did you support? Trump or Biden? Don’t worry if you could not decide between the two because we have compared the pros and cons of voting for both Trump and Biden to determine who you would pick.

Record S&P500:

Since the day Trump assumed the office of the president, he has been very concerned about the stocks’ performance. Many times he mentioned S&P500 and talked about the index. But, there is one thing that gives him the most pride—the highest S&P 500 index in United States history.

Yes, you read it right!

This year on February 19, the S&P 500 raised to the highest numbers ever recorded in history. The president could not control his happiness on this occasion, as he tweeted immediately, “Highest Stock Market In History, By Far!”

Replacement of NAFTA with USMCA:

United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement is a trade deal between the US, Mexico, and Canada. That deal replaced an agreement called NAFTA or North American Free Trade Agreement. Under this new deal, the US farmers will have more access to the Canadian Dairy Market, and experts predict that 28,000 jobs would manifest in the country because of this protocol. If elected, chances are Trump would continue working on the agreements that comply with the policy of ‘America First.’

Building stabilized relations with other countries:

America and North Korea have not been at good terms for the past few years. After Trump visits Noth Korea on June 29, the two nations would now see a round of good relations.

But, what’s so special about this?

The trip is memorable because Trump is the first president in the country’s history to visit North Korea. His journey to North Korea was a step forward to developing stabilized relations with the world’s nations.

Because of his racist remarks:

When the Black Lives Matter protest strikes the country, his message to Whites is unmistakable: Be afraid. Those people — you know who I mean — is trying to take over your land. I will stop them.

He has no self-control:

There is another problem with the president. He can’t control himself. Many times he made obscene comments about people without anticipating the reaction from the public. Previously, he even called the women ‘ nasty,’ who didn’t approve of his policies.

Corrupt team:

Unfortunately, President Trump surrounds himself with corrupt personnel. In the last four years, six Trump associates got charged with federal crimes, and the latest name on the list is Steve Bannon. We’re not saying Donald Trump is guilty by association, but the optics aren’t favorable.

Biden has self-control:

Joe Biden is a man of high intellect. He has complete self-control and maintained good relations with other politicians. President Barrack Obama sent him to Ukraine to try to clean up corruption there. No doubt, due to his honesty and integrity.

Moreover, Biden never passed any lewd or racist remark and supported the BLM protests over racial discrimination. Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, recently had a conversation with Blake’s family, which Blake’s after described as speaking to an uncle and one of his sisters.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

Biden has worked for the right of women. On January 20, 1990, Biden introduced a bill that becomes the Violence against the Women Act(VAWA). This act addresses the problems of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Biden supported the Iraq war:

Senator Joe Biden voted for the Iraq war, which caused 4,424 US soldiers’ death and cost taxpayers $2.4 trillion.

Biden Supported the Mass Incarceration:

Joe Biden favored the Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which resulted in many people spending life sentences for minor crimes.

Biden was against Gay marriage and Abortion rights:

Senator Joe Biden voted for the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, which defied gay marriages. Moreover, in 1982, he voted for a constitutional amendment meant to overturn the Supreme Court decision, which declared abortions legal.

No matter who you decided to vote for, the differences between Trump vs. Biden are stark. But only when looking through specific issues. In a general sense, Trump and Biden have a lot in common. I would even go so far as to say they are two sides of the same coin.

Mail-in voting not going far enough

I’m here to inform you all about the truth about mail-in voting. Specifically, the mail-in vote has nothing to do with suppression. And everything to do with disenfranchisement.

In essence, American politicians are undermining their policies by essentially closing the door behind them. That’s the whole point of the modern political machines. Get into power, and not let anyone follow you. Moreover, don’t even pass the torch.

With that said, the current COVID-19 pandemic only more exacerbates these points. So businesses shutting due to Covid-19 restrictions isn’t irony. It is by design. The government isn’t suppressing the vote. They are completely shutting it down.

Closed-door politics is why we have to continue to fight for our rights. Because nobody else will advocate for us, it is the year 2020, and we still vote like it’s the 1950s. More importantly, it feels as though I’m the only one asking why?

What good is all this technology when we can’t even vote with it? I’m serious too. The internet isn’t secure enough to utilize it to vote. My argument is there is no way something like that can be real unless we are asleep at the wheel.

It’s rather odd how tiny mailing strips of carved up trees is more secure than using a cell phone. But that’s the world we live in; that’s the world people accept. And until we stop taking it, it’s all we can expect going forward.

This voting rights issue is bigger than the right vs. left paradigm. Lack of choice and option affects us all negatively. And without some course correction, it all leads to the end of American citizens having any rights left at all.

If having no rights is what you want, then, by all means, continue the path the corporate overlords wish you to take. But when you are living under martial law, don’t complain to me. Please don’t say there weren’t any advocates for you in the media because we are right here.

We have got to start taking internet security seriously. Safety is paramount to having healthy communities. Right now, we don’t have those healthy communities. We have the opposite of healthy. What we have is more like we all fell down and fractured our ribs.

How wrong the polling was in the election

The election season was at its peak. Campaign rallies and speeches have excited the public. Everyone wanted to know who would rule the country for the next four years. So here is how the 2020 presidential polls looked in the months leading up to the election

It is too early to declare who would win the elections. Before the national vote, national polls are an excellent way to predict who is most likely to be the next resident of the White House.

According to FINANCIAL TIMES, Biden is leading the presidential race with 50.7 percentage points. In this run, Trump is behind Biden with 42.5 percentage points, putting Biden ahead by 8.2%. 

But, some fortune has hit Biden this time.

Because he is top of the list everywhere, yes, that’s true. The results of DAYBREAK also put Biden ahead of everyone with 53.02 percentage points. On the other hand, Trump could only win the hearts of 40.75% of the people. Well, that’s a pretty good margin. Isn’t it? 

By this time, you must know who Trump and Biden are. In case you don’t know, Joe Biden is the Democratic candidate for the 2020 presidential elections. Biden joined politics in the 1970s and had been the country’s vice president form 2009 to 2017. On the other hand, Donald Trump is running for the presidency from the Republican’s camp, and he is the current president of the United States. 

Before we proceed, there’s one thing to note. Polls are not necessarily always correct. As in 2016, the polls were more inclined towards Clinton, and everybody thought that Democrats would steal the show this year. But what happened. Trump won the elections and sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. 

So, we could never be sure about them. The graph may flip 180 degrees before the big day, and we see Trump ruling the numbers. Who knows that. Maybe Trump’s supporters are shy with the polls, and only come forward on November 3rd?

If we talk about the battleground states, Biden is ruling there as well. He continues to lead Trump in…

  1. Michigan
  2. Minnesota
  3. Nevada
  4. Pennsylvania
  5. Wisconsin
  6. Virginia
  7. Ohio
  8. New Hampshire
  9. North Carolina
  10. Arizona
  11. Florida

As clear from there above stats, the competition is very tough, and everything is possible. Plus, it is still early September, and polls are often subjective or cherry-picked to favor one candidate.

2020 presidential polls showed Trump gaining over Joe Biden

From the second half of last year, we have been hearing that Joe Biden is gaining the lead over President Donald Trump, and there are very few chances that the President will serve another term in office. The scenario has somewhat started to shift towards President Trump’s side now, with significant poll results suggesting that President Trump is a difficult opponent to be trounced.

The President comes with a 3-point margin with 48% votes than 45% of Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Although President Trump had a more than 9-point lead in Iowa in 2016, it is still worse for Democrats.

The breakthrough came after the Republican National Convention, which significantly influenced President Trump’s position. A new morning poll conducted after the August 24th convention suggests that the President needed a pattern to bounce his position. These polls suggest a four-point improvement in President Trump’s standing.

The polls conducted before August 23rd involving 4,810 likely voters showed that Biden led 52 percent compared to 42 percent. After the convention, similar polls showed Biden’s lead dropping to 50 percent compared to 44 percent of President Trump. This might not look like a big thing to many it is very likely to have a significant impact on overall poll results to be conducted in November.

Moving forward, the latest edition of Democracy Institution has released the results of its survey. The results show that President Donald Trump is all set to serve the second term as the President in the Oval office.

According to the survey, 48% of popular support lies with President Trump, while 45% lies with Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The gap is even wider in the key states where 49% percent of registered voters supported Donald Trump, and 42% supported Joe Biden providing the President with a seven-point lead.

The Democratic Institution has been consistently showing more neutral and positive results than any other survey institution. Still, the Democratic accuse them of being more favorable to Donald Trump.

The survey was conducted among 1,500 participants who are registered US voters. It was carried out by asking the participants a series of questions answered on phone calls due to the COVID-19 threat. It is important to note that Democracy Institution has correctly predicted the 2016 Presidential Election and Brexit results.

Additionally, the poll results also show that only 3% percent of President Trump supporters and 9% of Biden supporters say that they can change their minds on election day, which further confirms the results’ legitimacy.

Elections are less than two away, and such a significant comeback from the President is a clear indicator that he is all set for his second term and will have a surprising victory just like 2016.
