President Biden

Post by verreli »

It appears that Biden beat Trump in the 2020 presidential election however, concerns remain over his health with many believing he's just a Trojan horse for a Harris presidency. I'm one of them. I don't think he'll run a full term before the more socialist Harris takes over and becomes the first female US president. My guess is 20 months but what do you think? Either way it'll be a fascinating few years as Biden deals with the fallout from Covid-19.

The big issue for the UK is not the length of time he serves but his negative attitude to Brexit and lack of interest in a UK/USA trade deal; I bet BJ just wants to pull the duvet over his head and emerge from hibernation in 2023.

Indeed. A Biden win was good news for me and my investments but bad news for the UK. I don't know enough about Harris to make a call on how her possible future presidency will affect the UK.

I think we all want BJ to do that Iain :lol:
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

Yikes verreli, we agree again. That must be, what, three times in the past week :rofl:

Although only a small sample, I think the poll shows a couple of interesting things so far.

1. Nobody, not even his most ardent supporters think he'll run a second term. I think this speaks volumes in itself.

2. Neglecting the two votes thinking he won't get to inauguration, there's a 50:50 split between those that think he'll complete his term and those that think he'll hand over at some point in the next 4 years. Again, an interesting stat. How many other presidents could you say that about at this stage in the process?

Thanks to all those that voted. While just a bit of fun, it's interesting none the less.
