Although there are only
a couple of weeks left until Election Day, there’s still margin for at least a
few unprecedented events. Even though the wave of pessimism has taken over
slightly, chances of Joe
Biden taking over the Oval Office next year remain
Below are five reasons
affirming why America will not select a psychopath as its next president:

As you know, the
Republican National Convention was a chance for Trump to regain his power and
optimize from the four nights of free airtime on the network. Unfortunately, he failed to leave a mark and improve his
status at the polling.
In August, when the Democrats
kicked off the convention series, Biden
was already leading by 7.7 points and now the figure is down to 7.2, suggesting
that Trump did improve. However, this is a small gap that he managed to fill
and he still needs to make a gigantic leap to even make it a 50/50 game.
A police officer shot
an unarmed Black man seven times on August 23rd, after which a
number of nonviolent protests ensued. A couple of days later, a 17-year-old
Trump fan traveled from Illinois with an AR-15
rifle (no idea how it came to his possession)
to keep “law and order.” Anyway, the kid ended up murdering two innocent people
– and Trump, of course, defended his actions.
After this unfortunate
event, the Democrats began to feel insecure as flashbacks from 2016
elections came to revive. Honestly, any major event can
change the fate of America at this point and, historically speaking, the Republicans
use public safety to manipulate and gain sympathy votes from the already afraid
This fear is overhyped with the results of a
survey conducted after the Kenosha incident. The popular consensus stated that “if
Joe Biden is elected, things will be as bad as they are now”. However, one must
not get carried away and think of this as a reason for concern.
Another poll revealed
to 39 percent people believe that Biden can do better
on the issue of public safety as compared to Trump.
Like Hillary Clinton, Joe
Biden is a familiar face. And what gives him an edge over
her is the fact that he’s not been villainized by the right-wing media
throughout his political journey. This means Trump can’t make personal jabs at
him. And really, even if Trump tries, who would believe him?
In the last election,
Trump and Clinton collectively raised $233 million to run their respective
campaigns. Joe Biden surpassed both of their collections in August by managing to raise $300 million on his own! In fact, Biden’s funding is historic
as it breaks the record set by Barack Obama!
He’s using ads to
convince people to buy his plans to end the pandemic and prosecute looters.
This surely has Trump riled up and confused.
There’s no stop to the
increasing number of COVID-19 cases for now. In addition, winters are just
around the corner – a major threat to outdoor dining. These are all
contributing factors to the already damaged businesses prospects so it’s
obvious that the economy is experiencing yet another hit. Mass unemployment and
bankruptcies are lurking in the shadows, and if Trump continues to cap the “keep America great” campaign, he’d be
no less than a joke.
