Trump Vs. Biden – Who is leading?
The coronavirus pandemic had people pretty much occupied. Along with that, Trump’s presidency has also been a target for the opposition. With both his presidency and life at stake, Donald Trump is now fighting bravely with the virus. But what does that mean for the Trump vs. Biden polls?
Is the news of Trump being infected with the coronavirus going to change the polls? Overall if we look at the polls, it looks like Trump is a little bit behind Biden. For instance, in some cases, he has been behind with double digits.
However, the situation seemed to be the same in 2016. Even then, Trump was a little behind Hillary based on the polls. Yet he managed to pull himself ahead in the game. So, it is very likely that history will repeat itself again.
Covid-19 and The Elections
Nevertheless, the on-going pandemic is certainly casting a lot of darkness on the elections. After all, the pandemic is affecting each and every citizen in one way or the other.
Overall, the difference in approaches that both the candidates have adopted towards the pandemic may end up being the deciding factor in the end. Who knows?
Biden VS Trump
Biden has managed to develop the image of a considerate and honest leader. A saviour who has come to save the country during its darkest most times. According to many of his supporters, there is no other man who can save America.
Furthermore, Biden also wants his supporters to know that he is not like Trump. He wants everybody to know that he takes the pandemic very seriously and that the rising number of COVID cases in the US are a cause concern.
On the other hand, Trump seems to have developed the reputation of a lone warrior who never gives up nor steps back. Though for a small while, it felt as if his diagnosis of COVID would play in the hands of Biden.
However, Trump reflected it as a blessing and developed the image of a warrior who will not give up and will continue to work under all circumstances. This unmatched willpower has shown the US that Trump is highly determined and considers misfortunes to be a challenge.
Trump’s Image is At Stake
Based on polls, a big number of people are of the view that Trump does not take the elections seriously. According to them, he does not consider the COVID pandemic to be a national level emergency.
Since he has been ignoring the scientific evidence continuously, it may eventually lead him to losing a lot of votes. That is at least, definitely not playing in his favour.
The main reason why Biden is ahead in the national election polls is because that at least, he takes the pandemic seriously.
Along with that, certain scandals associated with Trump such as the tax avoidance, failure to reduce the risks of coronavirus pandemic, and the failure to take timely actions are all going against him. Hence, there is no wonder that Biden is ahead in polls.
So even if Biden is ahead in the polls, could Donald Trump win still? Well that is very much popular. As we saw in the 2016 election, Trump won despite behind in the polls. This is because when it comes to elections, there are a big number of things that matter and not the polls alone.
The Trump vs Biden North Carolina polls are nothing but a small reflection of the public opinion. Despite holding opinions against Trump, chances are that many people will still vote for him. So, one cannot be certain about the final win/defeat based on the polls alone.
