Excerpt from “10 reasons why Trump is likely to win re-election” by Global Risk Insights , Nov 2, 2020

There is much speculation and concern about Biden’s health and whether or not it is failing.

Regardless, his age alone has been described as possibly weakening his chances of winning this election. Voters may consider a combination of his age and rumored declining health to be an important factor when casting their ballots.

In contrast, the narrative Trump perpetuates is one of “vigor” – illustrated by his dedication to the campaign trail – despite the current climate.

His quick recovery from Covid (albeit due to the exceptional care and unrivaled access to drugs not available to the large majority of the American public) has given him more opportunity to flaunt that “vigor”.

Voters must also consider the possibility of Kamala Harris becoming President in the event Biden does fall ill (although it should be noted he has recently been given a clean bill of health).

This poses another threat to Biden’s chances this election – as he will have to rely on Senator Harris’ popularity with voters.

It’s hard to say what sort of influence Harris has as a running mate for several reasons – an inability to connect with Black voters, an extremely liberal voting record in the Senate and an overall lack of star power (compared to other possible running mates, such as Bernie Sanders) could put her in a difficult position with a variety of voter groups.
