Things around American elections are just getting heated more than ever. This Sunday marks the 100day count-down for President Trump. Critics say the times ahead in the USA are undoubtedly one of the most tensed and interesting ones for the country.
The nation is currently facing two major changes; While the first one being the COVID-19 which is taking a toll on the nation in all ways – economically, socially and politically, the second reason is the fight between Joe Biden,77, and Donald Trump, 74 – making the upcoming elections the most interesting one in the nation’s history.
The success rate in Corona fight
The nation has already taken sympathies from critics who felt that the country’s worsening situation in the fight with corona was due to the lack of strict control and lockdown measures straight from the government itself. As a result, the country is struggling with 140,000 deaths as of date with more than 4,170,333 active cases.
All the figures undoubtedly made the people lose trust in the existing leadership. Thus, regaining and rebuilding the trust in the capacity of his rule and the governmental institutions is undoubtedly a challenging aspect for Trump himself.
Racism and riots adding fuel to fire
Another challenge that recently entered into the picture is the racism and the police brutality. Though the country has always been facing the problem, its impact during the election times cannot be negated. Thousands of people are raising their voices against racist behavior of the policemen and the issue has not subsided yet.
Rivals in the arena
Adding to these social aspects and communal challenges, it is the presidential candidature of both the candidates that makes the upcoming elections worth watching. Both the candidates are business magnates of their status. The verbal fight between the giants has been so personal that many times Trump derided Joe to be “weak,” “sleepy” and mentally incompetent.
Nonetheless, Hoe Biden keeps mentioning that his fight is for the “soul of America”.
While one is a born billionaire, others have had deep political experience in the Senate and served twice as Vice President under Barack Obama’s rule.
Despite all the odds that are never virtual but are promisingly challenging, Donald Trump seems to have his confidence that he would emerge as the winner in November. He was once belittled to be a clown, and most surveys proved that two-thirds of the citizens do not trust his leadership in the backdrop of coronavirus havoc.
In Texas, it is Republican who has the stronghold while Democrats are aiming at getting a hold of the senate by some means or the other.
Both the parties had canceled their meets due to Corona, which was planned a few days back.
Fake polls and invisible enemies
Media when questioned the president about his opinion on the polls and the surveys, President Donald Trump has an interesting answer. He shoos away all the polls to be ‘fake’ and says they are as old as 2016 and hence they are ‘even more fake’.
Many times, Trump mentioned his fight is with “the invisible enemy” – referring to COVID. No surprise to mention that he is fighting with two now, including Biden.
The presidential campaign lost the charm, blame it all on the Coronavirus. With Trump running campaigns from homes, with occasional press meets and media interviews, critics are wondering about his ‘bunker strategy’, and are keen to watch if this would be a lucky charm for him or not.
