President Trump's reelection chances are diminishing every day, reports Brad Bannon of The Hill. Joe Biden has a strong national lead that will be hard to undo. The mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the economy has upset many voters. Eight million Americans have slipped into poverty because of it and the Republican leadership has failed to properly support them in recent months. Polls are clear: voters are tiring of Trump. The fact that Biden's son is being attacked highlights that no serious dirt could be uncovered about Biden himself. Unless Trump can do something extraordinary during the final debate to turns the race, he is done.
Claims that President Trump will lose the election shouldn't be trusted, holds Davider Siders of Politico. In a highly unorthodox election, standard polling and prediction practices will always miss crucial factors. Several key states have seen a rise in Republican voter registration. Issues with mail-in ballots or GOP-led voter suppression could make a big impact. Democrats feel confident now that early voting is giving them a lead, but that advantage might be undone by Republican voters who will largely cast their ballots in person. Biden halting his door-knocking campaign due to COVID-19 fears gave Trump another advantage. This election is far from over.
