Prominent Republicans have begun to publicly distance themselves from the president because they are concerned about what Nebraska Senator Bensasi has described as a potential “blue tsunami” as the Democrats can maintain the US House while also controlling the US Senate and White House.
In a desperate attempt to alter the current course of the competition, Trump advisers were pleading with him to take a less combative approach on Thursday than he had been in the first debate when he created an almost unseen event by repeatedly boycotting Biden and repeating his remarks with personal attacks on the former. Vice President and Son Hunter.
To avoid a repeat of this chaotic event, the Presidential Debating Committee has taken an unprecedented step to change the rules: The candidate’s microphones will be cut off as their opponent responds to the first question in each of the six segments. Topics for discussion, which will be moderated by Kristen Welker, are “Fighting Covid-19”, “American Families”, “Race in America”, “Climate Change”, “National Security” and “Leadership”. The 90-minute discussion begins at 9 PM ET.
Class candidates were assigned with large plexiglass barriers at the Curb Events Center in Nashville. Cleveland Clinic medical advisers originally recommended septa, but it is now unlikely that spacers will be used because conditions have changed, according to the commission’s senior advisor, Peter Ayer. No further clarification was provided and the components were removed from the discussion stage.
The second planned debate between the two men was canceled after Trump tested positive for the Coronavirus and refused to participate in a virtual debate.
Both men face tough necessities as they face an audience of tens of millions of people for the last time. Biden is trying to improve his margins with Hispanic voters, in part to shore up his numbers in major states in Florida and Arizona at a time when he was doing worse with these voters than Clinton did.
Trump grapples with female voters who are increasingly drawn to Biden. It should also tighten its grip on one of its main constituencies, the white, educated non-college electorate. Trump won these voters by 30 points in 2016, but he currently has only a 19-point margin within that demographic, according to an analysis by Harry Enten of CNN. Biden, born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, has proven himself a stronger opponent than Clinton when it comes to these voters – one of the reasons why he is better off in the Midwestern states than the 2016 Democratic nominee.
To bolster his standing, Trump advisers hope he will focus on the laser economy, an area in which he has traditionally had a clear advantage over Biden. But Trump showed little discipline even in the final days of this race.
This is an urgent story and will be updated.
