“Biden’s Long Run.”
Within the next few hours, a few days at most, Joseph Biden will achieve his life’s chief political objective to become president of the United States. Despite the promises of the polls, actual voting rates have been up and down, reflecting the dichotomy between urban and rural. Trump’s last explosion of rallies appears to have actually invigorated its base and stimulated a rush of votes. But he couldn’t outrace his negativities, America’s changing demographics of a blacker and browner nation, and the distaste he aroused amongst suburban women.
When the polls close, and the races are cold, the Biden-Harris tickets may garner an incredible 70 million plus votes. Which while not a factor in the electoral college, will be half a million to a million more than Barack Obama’s first run in 2008, which netted 69.4 million votes. For Joseph Biden, the third time appears to be the charm.
