Biden will be fine as President.

Providing all he has to do is read two speeches a day from an autocue. Having his afternoon nap between each speech.

He does seem a bit senile.

To an outsider, Biden seems like a 3rd thumb. I can see Trump savaging him. What a choice eh. Wasn't Jimmy Carter also omly one term?

Biden will find the debates hard.

Yeah Carter was one term.

Bernie Sanders was a good democratic candidate. I'm not sure why they didn't select him.

Because like Corbyn, he's not allowed to get in to a position of leading national governance.

He was too left-wing for America. https://youtu.be/Z7s-QGtnnSg

Don't you mean senile? People turned against Sanders after he made all that money from his book.

Trump did a lot of good things for the US. Tax cuts, deregulation, big trade deals. Thought he was on a wind up when saying he was going to build a wall, but he has made a start on it.

The economy & stock market was breaking records until the Pandemic. The stock market making a good recovery.

People say Trump didn't handle the pandemic well. But don't say what they would have done differently. He did ban travel into America early on.

There is not much enthusiasim for Biden. People may vote for him just because they don't like Trump.

He's been around a long time & failed in previous presidential bids. He eventually had 8 years in the white house as VP. Was a decent VP from 2008-2016 & should have then enjoyed his retirement.

Has aged a lot over the last 4 years & seems to be a rabbitt in the headlights. Not believing he could actually end up as the most powerful man in the world, while simultaneously enjoying being in the limelight in his twilight years.

Said himself he will be a caretaker President, but caretakers step in when there is an unexpected vacancy. Caretaker football managers usually last two weeks.

Not even sure he will last 4 years, may step down after 6-18  months to give Harris a chance before the next election.

Trump is at least high energy & mentally alert.

Being President is relentless. Bill Clinton said when they see a President make a speach, they think that's all he's doing for the day. However there are constant high pressure things going on behind closed doors.

The wall is actually more of a fence. But it’s better than nothing. It should have been built decades ago if you ask me. The amount of heroin and meth smuggled in by the Mexican cartels and the amount of guns they smuggle out on the way back is probably astronomical.

Is that the new wall?

Bits of walls were built during previous administrations. But not very successfully.

Now it's underway, they might as well complete it. As once built it should last decades. Biden says he will stop work on it instantly if President.

It's not perfect although they have mentioned the wall also has some technology such as cameras which may make a difference.

I thought this might crop up again: the issue of whether the electoral college can survive in a country where the demography is gradually changing. https://youtu.be/flHBp1G7iLc
