All eyes are on the rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump as the election clock to November 5th approaches. With both candidates running for reelection against a backdrop of controversy and difficulties, the race for the presidency looks to be a referendum on two divisive personalities.

Current Poll Averages

Recent polling data shows a tight race between Trump and Biden:

  • Donald Trump: Median 45%, Range 40-50%
  • Joe Biden: Median 44%, Range 40-49%

The Political Landscape

The next election will be similar to the one in 2020, with Biden being the incumbent and not facing much of a primary fight from the Democratic Party, while Trump won the Republican primary field. However, there is a lot of controversy and popular scepticism around both contenders.

Biden’s Presidency Under Scrutiny

Economic issues throughout President Biden’s presidency have included rising inflation and divisive industry policy. Overshadowed by persistent doubts about his youth and vitality, his foreign policies—particularly his leadership against Russia’s actions in Ukraine—have been the focal point of his campaign.

Trump’s Campaign Amid Legal Battles

Known for his unorthodox methods, Donald Trump is facing legal issues because of his purported involvement in attempts to void the results of the 2020 election. Trump keeps rallying his supporters by promising to address cultural issues and disparage his legal opponents in spite of legal pressure.

Key upcoming events in the election cycle include:

  • July 15th: Republican National Convention in Milwaukee
  • August 19th: Democratic National Convention in Chicago
  • September 10th: Second presidential debate

Candidates at a Glance

Joe Biden: Notwithstanding reservations about his performance and age, 81-year-old Biden aims to continue his political legacy. His marketing emphasises experience and consistency.

Donald Trump: Trump is a divisive person whose campaign brings up issues from his administration, highlighting immigration and dividing cultures while criticising his legal struggles.

Final Thoughts

With months to go, the election will continue to be unpredictable due to changes in public opinion, conventions, and debates. Voters’ assessments of leadership qualities, policy agendas, and the candidates’ capacity to overcome legal and political obstacles will all play a role in which candidate they choose between Biden and Trump.
