While the United States of America continue the battle the crippling effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the country has another important task to perform in the coming months: electing the next president of the United States (POTUS). Of course, since President Donald Trump is still on his first term in office, there is a chance for him to win another four years as the most powerful person in the White House. However, with the issues and controversies that the Trump administration has faced, it is also likely that the American people would decide to vote for a new leader to steer the country towards the path of progress.
The Democrats have finally chosen their presidential bet to go against Trump in the presidential elections this November, which is none other than former US Vice President Joe Biden. There were so many names that surfaced before the official proclamation of the Democrats’ official bet for the election, like Senator Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and most especially Bernie Sanders. However, the entire party seems to have locked on Biden to do the job in beating the Republicans’ Trump.
The big question remains: does Joe Biden have what it takes to defeat Donald Trump? The former’s achievements in politics, no matter how great they are, may not be enough to snatch the presidency from Trump, as the incumbent POTUS seems to enjoy the support of the country by means of popularity.
Biden Could Use His Far Greater Experience In Public Office To Defeat Trump, But There Is More Work To Be Done
Joe Biden is known to be the youngest elected senator in the history of the United States. Since then, Biden has continuously proven himself to the American people as a worthy protector of the rule of law. At this point, he is now the oldest presumptive presidential candidate, and he has with him his decades-long of public service, that even Donald Trump himself could not deny. However, his opponent could also use his advantage as his weak spot: his old age. Looking at the United States’ voting population, it seems that they would rather elect someone that is younger, which is thought to be a requirement to really connect with the people. This is unfortunate since electing a president is very different from finding a popular TikTok celebrity who may have bought many followers from hypetik.
Nonetheless, Biden could also use his opponent’s weakness, which is the government’s sheer incompetence and ignorance. Over the years, President Trump repeatedly made big claims that were eventually proven to be incorrect, which could be tantamount to his removal from office. The country’s current situation in the face of the pandemic is something that can also be blamed to the Trump government that could cost Trump’s reelection bid.
