Could Joe Biden be the next US President? He was President Barack Obama’s Vice President for eight years, previously serving 36 years a Democratic Senator, so has plenty of experience to draw upon (and plenty of political baggage). His policy goals include affordable healthcare and tackling climate change. He would also, if elected, be the oldest President of the United States. Can he convince US citizens?

President Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. President Trump has already had the experience of being President of the United States, and he is certainly one of the most controversial presidents in recent memory. He increasingly been portraying himself as a ‘wartime president’ in the fight against the coronavirus and has declared international organisations such as the WHO to be the enemy. Nevertheless, recent polling has not been good for President Trump, and he can no longer rely on his record on the economy given unemployment has surged during the pandemic.

Can Joe Biden beat President Trump in the US election? Or will Trump win a second term? Let us know your thoughts and comments in the form below and we’ll take them to policymakers and experts for their reactions!

    Can Joe Biden beat President Trump in the US election?

    What the American people have to realise and quickly is, should Biden, who appears to be suffering some kind of weak health, could, within six months be unfit for his Job. Subsequently the female they have nominated as their Vice Presidential candidate, without further vote, will step into his position. Do they feel she is worthy as leader of the free world?

    I don’t think so.

      As you point out it is in essence a 3 person race. Trump vs Biden and Harris. Both Trump and Biden are very old men, both could die within office and then be replaced by their Vice Presidents. Strangely nobody isn’t even talking about the current Vice President Mike Pence. Trump is not from the house of politics, he is from the house of business, he doesn’t follow the rules that have established themselves among the political class over time, this is what appealed to many voters that voted for him, but it is also something that makes his opponents dislike him, especially because of his mouth. Can Biden beat Trump yes he can, but he will have to explain to the voters why they should go back with a typical political type vs whatever Trump represents. As a US senator Biden voted yes to the Iraq war, a war that resulted in over 1million dead Iraqis and over 3000 dead US and coalition troops, and also a strengthening of Islamic terrorism in the World, as a result we have terrorists in Libya, Syria, terror attacks in Paris, Belgium etc. , over 1million muslim refugees marched into Europe, what will be the consequences good and bad of this migration (5 years from now, 20 years from now, 50 years from now, 200 years from now), we don’t know. I don’t place blame only on the USA, European countries that should have known better supported these wars, in some cases even going so far as to provide political support, soldiers, weapons, logistical support, intelligence, money etc. Now Europe gets to enjoy the consequences of these wars on it’s own soil. We must be smarter and not solve disputes with wars. Political Europe needs to assert itself and defend it’s interests from US overreach (Nordstream pipeline project), just as the USA doesn’t want European meddling in the Americas Europe should have a clear policy of no US meddling in Europe, Africa, Arabia and Asia, basically anything bordering Europe, unless of course it is in cooperation with European powers. I have theorized that it is in fact possible that all these wars have a European reason more than an American one. 20 Years after the Balkan wars these nations are joining the EU, will it be that 20 years after the fall of Ghadaffi, Assad etc. that the countries on the Mediterranean join the EU or the Mediterranean Union, I don’t know. But we know that the EU doesn’t think only in terms of 1 year, they can think in terms of 20 years, 50 years etc.

    Sorry, I take a pass joining the political speculators.

    I read one has a 1:13 chance at a Euro Million award and a 1:9 prospect of a Lotto payout. The political successes ratio is unknown to me and nothing can be won or gained anyways!

    Why not relax, show patience or play where one can win or lose some real money? Try the stock market- or pull matches? On November 3, 2020, the US will reveal all- if not postponed.

      @ Orangepigeon

      All you write is, of course, the political point of view, filled with much indisputable fact. However, I was alluding to the average man in the street p.o.v. American voters, of both genders, do not like the idea of a female President. They look weak and sound flaky, not an image they wish to project globally. And the one chosen appears as an uneducated ladette……. Killery would not have any other in that position…. Certainly the two main players are elderly. Therefore equal on the scale of physically unsafe. However, Pence is a far less threat to American superiority than Harris. Remember, image is the front runner.

      Now, on image the choice has to be Pence. And he is a good back up to Trump. Trump is anti Globalist, which is the saviour of the ordinary Americas. In fact, it will save Western man in general. Trump is jobs, Trump is straight on where he is going economically and socially. Whereas, the truth of the Democrats. without Bernie Sanders is, the return of the money backing Clintons. Big money investors are they, as is their champion, Biden. Covid has not been dealt with well by any Western country and as a result, big money has been made out of it all round. A little research finds Democrats up to their neck in it for decades with big off shore corporations and that well known by blue collar men and women. The one overriding and plausible backing Trump has is, his anti Globalist stand, as that is the basis for Western poverty. Trillionaires grow from that foolish move and as it does, the population becomes destitute. The Democrats fanned it. It was their main invention. Equality my eye.

      And regarding the European situation, Trumps is of Scottish decent, loves the Queen and our historical civilisation as well as its cultural growth. The Democrats, are the opposite. They hated Churchill (Obama) and that British connection, as well as Europe and its massive growth in the EU, as well as all we are as a people. This productivity and culture is hard to beat. Well grounded American middle class are the staying power. And all Americans, ethnic and caucasian, aspire to middle class 1950’s style wealth. Not what they see as ‘deplorable’ Marxist communism presented as the answer to their current downward mobility..

      As long as Trump stays well on the side of US economical prosperity and takes action to show them how he will give it to them, he will win with a landslide. Which means, so do European people.

    I give Biden an 80% chance of victory, and I say that as someone who thought Trump had a 50% chance in 2016. The COVID and economic crises do not work in Trump’s favor. On the other hand, it’s true that Biden and Harris are not exactly inspiring figures. Let’s see!

      Very interesting Derek. What, in particular, changed your mind?

      Derek

      It was alot of things.. after hearing the media constantly attack him for years I got to thinking “there’s no way hes actually this bad right?” So I started listening to his actual speeches whenever the media claimed he said something wrong, and reading his policies whenever the media said he made a new awful one.
      And I was shocked to realize they’re just framing everything he does in a negative light, 80% of the time they intentionally mislead or omit.
      Then I started looking at the democrats and how authoritarian they actually have become and I’m sickened, it’s like 1984 put to real life.
      One of the biggest things for me was watching in real time as the media said trump was racist for putting travel ban on china, then a few weeks later he wasn’t doing enough against Corona, so then he did the total travel ban and the media said he was a xenophobe.
      On top of that hes doing some actually good things calling out China and their bad practices especially with hong kong. I dont see any other politician doing that.
      To me, it makes sense that the guy who’s going after big tech, big pharma, china, and the political establishment would have alot of enemies and be framed as the bad guy by those he puts at monetary risk.

    I can’t understand that, after everything that has been going on, how it’s even possible that Trump still has any support, especially in Europe. It simply seems unbelievable.

      like I said, do the research. I dont listen to what the media says trump said

    No way, he probably can’t stay awake long enough or keep his nose away from some womens hair. Creepy Joe, slow Joe, sleepy Joe.

    -Yes, Trump knew Epstein. He admitted it himself.
    -The photos of them together are from before 2003.
    -In 2004 Trump not only barred Epstein from Mar-a-lago estate, he also placed a bid on property (and won) in Palm Beach that Epstein was looking to purchase.
    -In 2005 Trump revealed Epstein secrets to PBSCO investigation.
    -In 2006, two of Epstein’s victims confirmed they knew Trump had barred Epstein from his estate in mar-a-lago.
    -In 2009 Bradley Edwards (Prosecutor on the Epstein case) made a public statement that Trump was the only individual who helped in the prosecutions against Epstein.
    -Per victim testimonies on the newly released Epstein/Maxwell documents reveal that Trump was not seen on Epstein’s island or anywhere with Epstein.
    -The newly released documents show that the FBI withheld victim evidence in 2009 and in 2014.
    -Who was the President in 2009 and 2014?-Obama.
    -Who was the FBI director in 2009?-Mueller
    -Who was the FBI director in 2014?-Comey
    -Who led the Russia Collusion Hoax against Trump?-Mueller and Comey.
    -Who was Muellers key witness during the Russian Collusion?-George Nadler
    -Who was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison for Pedophilia/Dozens of imagines and footage of children being sexually abused?-George Nadler
    -Who was the Secretary of State under Obama?-Clinton
    -Who did Epstein’s victims list on the pedo island?-Clinton
    -Who funded the Russian Dossier?-Clinton
    -Who fired Comey in 2017?-Trump
    -Who praised Weinstein for being a great human being in 2013?-Obama
    -Who was Obama’s VP?-Biden
    -Who is running for President against Trump?-Biden
    -Who received campaign donations from Epstein’s law firm?-Kamala
    -Who is Biden’s VP?-Kamala
    Research and educate yourself because if you vote for Biden, the victims of Epstein will never see justice for what they have endured.

    The last vote was emotional, and you rarely see a rational follow up for such votes. The covid crisis heated up the things even more, so I do believe it will be an unpredictable mess. The radical Republican wing can not be matched by the radical Democratic wing, because the second ones are still trying to overcome the loss of Sanders. Additionally it showed that they are really sore losers during the last election cycle so support there is questionable.,The moderate Democrats and Republicans are somewhat even, and the undecided voters that normally swing the result are a big question. In theory(and polls) they are leaning towards Biden, but then again many of those are not big on voting and with the covid raging probably will consider remaining at home, so the polls may be misleading. Theoretically if the appointment of Harris as a vice-president manages to rally the protesters Biden might have an edge, but those mobs are a wildcard, and given the development of the riots, I don’t really expect that there will be many votes coming from that alley. I do think that Trump is likely to get a second term, but then again the situation is very emotionally charged.

    The USA does not want Europe or the EU to be a superpower, so I do not know why are you so interested in the USA elections!

    The USA is now declining as a super power. Russia and China have signed a military alliance pact.

    The Democratic party must be insane,this should be for them the most winnable election in history,there’re up against a senile seventy four year old egomaniac,and what do they do?,they pick a candidate that’s even older and more senile than Trump.This election is basically between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris as de facto president.

    The question for America & the rest of the world is do we want another four years of Trump? Take a look at what he has done during his three plus years in office. Pretty much nothing but chaos, no achievements to speak of other than his trillion dollar tax cut for the very wealthy & corporations. His Coronavirus response or lack of response is a disaster. He has destroyed America’s relationships with their most important allies, hurt the EU, NATO, UN, trade among nations.

    So, yes, VP Biden is not young but he has as his VP Nominee a very capable & probably VP who will be the most active VP in US History. Biden has the leadership, experience & the desire to bring America back from the depths of despair it has been in for the past three years. He is known & trusted by our allies & by Americans. So, yes, I think & I am hopeful the American people will see him as the next choice to be President.

      @ Jon

      What has brought chaos is the Democratic Party in the USA, those in bed with BLM. Just the way they are now taking giant steps in this country, the UK, in order to diminish our people, our history and our wonderful steps of advancement for good of mankind.

      Tell me, please, what the rest of the world has done that competes with the great vision of a future filled with temperance and its link related to our past? Who and where, in any other cultures but Western, has made this planet worth living in? And if you can find one, why are their needy souls not taking a rubber boat there, as their millions prepare to drown for a better life far from them?….. Just give a list and name this progress the rest have brought to the welfare of our human race?

      What should be taking place, if cultures where these places stood for right, was, a return to the land of their origins and give service to those they care for. Take their people into a glorious belief system and grant all of them a saviour they are willing to die for to get there. Why are they not doing that? And if they are not, then it is time their culture and ours forced them into it at once.

      Their countries must be charged the total upkeep of every person and child who leaves their land for sustenance without permission to do so. And every penny taken from the Western tax payer reimbursed for their way of life, stolen, since wanton freeloaders set foot in their midst ready to remove it. Just the way those same graspers did to those ‘bad’ colonisers in their own midst. Let them live with what was chosen and leave our continent in that same way they left their own.

      Work and build their own way forward, don’t look at despised people to save their skin. The responsibility lies with themselves, not with those who already have what they want. That is theft which cannot be replaced by destruction.

      Violence and destruction is the cause of chaos other nationals had to flee. Let go of simpleton mentality, otherwise, akin to whence was left, will be nothing to aspire to.

      Joe Biden has just made a statement saying an African person invented the light bulb. It was invented by an Englishman named Joseph Swan who patented it prior to Edison. Eventually the two came to an agreement and settled on Edison-Swan.

      Now why did Biden do that? Could it be he wants to pretend a piece of engineering history belongs to his main backers, whilst he knows the truth is another story? Surely American voters can see his loyalty is not to truth but to a strange connection not afforded to the majority of the American people.

      Are you seriously suggesting this senile old guy is fit to be in the White House as leader of the free world, when he is incapable of looking up a simple historical fact?
