Ajay Jain Bhutoria-
Joe Biden is going to win the 2020 election and beat Donald Trump. All National polls till today shows Biden ahead of Trump by 10-11. Trump’s re-election is approaching the danger zone. As Trump skids in the polls, Biden has amassed an increased lead in so many battleground states that he is competing in places once considered out of reach, narrowing the Trump’s path to reelection.
To win the presidency, a candidate needs 270 electoral votes, a majority of the 538 electoral votes available across the 50 states and Washington, D.C. Most states are not very competitive. Their demographics and partisan voting histories make them likely to go to the same party they’ve broken for in recent elections, such as heavily Democratic California and heavily Republican Oklahoma
There are eight states that are toss-ups, plus one electoral vote in Maine, for 114 electoral votes — Florida (29 electoral votes), Pennsylvania (20), Ohio (18), North Carolina (15), Arizona (11), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), New Hampshire (4) and one electoral vote in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.
Recent polling data from Michigan and other key states Trump won in 2016 show Trump trailing presumptive Democratic nominee Biden and Biden closing the gap in some others. Here’s a look at the current polling averages from Real Clear Politics.com:
Biden Leads in below states: Michigan 7.3% Pennsylvania 3.3%, Wisconsin 3.4%, Ohio 1 %, Arizona 3.4%, Florida 3.4%, Texas 2.2 %
Six states currently lean toward Biden for 53 electoral votes, including Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico Virginia, & Pennsylvania.
Of the states leaning toward Biden, Clinton won all of them except Michigan. Trump won Michigan by just over 10,000 votes or 0.2 percentage points.
Biden is a leader; Trump is a Tweeter. America needs a leader. Not a Tweeter.
Choice is clear for voting in Nov. 2020. Biden and supporters are In Battle for the Soul of This Nation:’ Biden Says Now Is Moment for Country to Deal with Systematic Racism, Economic Inequity.
Biden is not running just as anti-Trump candidate, Biden has shared his vision to rebuild the Middle class, economy, restore American leadership in the world, and deal with Systematic racism, economic Inequity, Support for Small Businesses, Immigration Reform, and plan for rural America. Biden has Vision for America and restore the Soul of our Nation and Build upon
Democrats realize Biden’s, years of experience in the Obama Administration & Senate make him a steady, seasoned hand in a dangerous and uncertain world. As the coronavirus crisis unfolded, Biden provided his direction as a commander in chief would do during challenging times; formulating recommendations rooted in advice from health care and economics experts. Those suggestions included making coronavirus tests broadly accessible and free and no out-of-pocket cost for patients to receive an eventual vaccine, either.
The country knows Biden served as vice president in the Obama administration during the passage of the Affordable Care Act, and health care remains a top priority for him, and Biden supports adding a public option to the Affordable Care Act, but opposes “Medicare for all,”
Biden brings decades of Foreign Relations experience as former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and would restore and rebuild America’s role as a leader on the global stage.
The world today is facing inescapable challenges: a rapidly changing climate, the risk of nuclear conflict, trade wars, a rising China and an aggressive Russia, millions of refugees seeking shelter and security, and attacks on universal human rights and fundamental freedoms. The next president must repair our relationships with our allies and stand up to strongmen and thugs on the global stage to rally the world to meet these challenges. We can reclaim our longstanding position as the moral and economic leader of the world. We have to demonstrate respected leadership on the world stage.
Biden is an expert on foreign policy whose heart and values are rooted firmly in the middle class. He has stared down dictators and spoken out for America’s cops and firefighters. He is uniquely suited to lead this country as we work to put our country back on track.
It is time for a respected leader on the world stage and a dignified leadership at home. It is time for equal opportunity, equal rights, and equal justice. It is time for an economy that rewards those who actually do work. It is time for the President who stands for all of us.
It is time to work hard to elect Biden as the next President of the United States.
To make this dream come true, here are 10 things as a supporter you can do to help Biden win this Election.
Give Biden your wholehearted, full-throated support.
Biden is the Presumptive Nominee for Democratic Party. The next President could be Biden or Trump.
I saw a recent Facebook post that said something like, “Never Biden = Vote for Trump; Voting Green = Vote for Trump; Writing in Bernie = Vote for Trump; Staying Home = Vote for Trump.” There is no time or room for protest votes.
And just voting for Biden isn’t enough.
