The Rematch: Biden v. Trump

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 03: People watch a projection on the side of a building as poll reports begin to roll in on Black Lives Matter Plaza in front of the White House on Election Day, November 3, 2020 in Washington, DC. This year’s historic presidential election between President Donald Trump, the incumbent, and Democratic nominee Joe Biden begins to come to a close even though final results are not expected for days to come as states take longer to count historic levels of mail-in ballots.

The Rematch: Biden v. Trump

Chances are, this November 5th 2024 is going to feel a lot like November 3rd 2020 — a bit like Groundhog Day. After a decisive set of Republican primaries, it's increasingly clear President Joe Biden is likely to face off against a familiar foe: former President Donald Trump. A race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden isn't only a rematch, but a contest between two men who have already occupied the Oval office and been in the public eye for decades. This, despite the fact that several polls show Americans did not want a rematch between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. So what is there still to learn about the two candidates, their styles, and the policies they would put in place if they get another four years in the White House?
