If you watch the debate, please understand that such political events differ from academic debates including determine who “winds” the evening. We will discuss this more as the week progresses but sometimes the person making the most salient points can still lose ground based on demeanor. Vice President Biden is in better shape for victor status simply due to his lead in the polls. His goal is one of preservation. However, the President enjoys a great opportunity to highlight Biden’s lack of public activity since the COVID shutdown. Voters have seen little of the Democratic nominee so major slip-ups similar to his primary performance could spell trouble.
