Most the media will SAY that Biden won the debates yes. But he will not win the debates.
It's like election night. Trump will won & most the media will say "too close to call- we need to get more of mail in votes and there have been some accusations of voter suppression in key states that we gotta clear up before we play trucks victory speech."
Then they'll recount votes until they have enough to beat trump.
They will declare Biden the winner. Promise.
That's even if he asks u to vote him to congress again or shits himself
They said Hillary wiped the floor with him after every one of their debates, but all anyone remembers of those debates is Trump's one liners. Trump CLEARLY won those debates in terms of memorable moments, yet the press unanimously said he failed miserably. The same will happen with Biden.
However, I do think there is reason to be concerned in the Trump camp. They have set the bar RIDICULOUSLY low for Biden in terms of what people expect out him. If he is anything short of a total fucking disaster, he will exceed expectations. That could be a problem, as people might start questioning whether the swiss-cheese brain dementia Joe narrative being pushed by the Trump campaign holds up, and might lead to backlash if fair-minded people judge it to be bullshit.
absolutely. who needs a depth of understanding of issues and a coherent policy when people remember one liners and that's what matters.
How many voters do you think actually understand issues and policy positions?
Hint: it's a TINY minority. Most people vote for the person that made the biggest impression on them, or who does something memorable. That's why incumbents almost always win, despite their constituents being dissatisfied with their performance. It's also why so many spouses and children of long-time incumbents cruise to victory after that incumbent retires/dies. They vote for that familiar name, not policies.
It's also why obviously charismatic candidates win votes over boring, staid, technocrats. It's why so many of the same people in flyover country who voted for Obama in 2008/12 voted for Trump in 2016, despite them being polar opposites in almost every way. They voted for charismatic candidate that was foremost in their minds.
Trump's greatest strength is his charisma and making an impression on everyone who sees him and being memorable. That helps him win votes. Will it be enough? Who knows. We'll find out in a few weeks.
