Trump vs Biden 2020

It’s now a matter of days until we find out whether President Trump will be sitting in the Oval Office for his second term as President, or will Joe Biden topple Trump and win the race to be America’s 46th president?

Over 60 million Americans have already cast early votes, will many more expected over the weekend. Biden has a strong lead in the national polls, with Trump trailing by around 7 or 8 points. Biden is the bookies favourite, but it’ll go down to who can win the key battleground states including Florida, Michigan, Texas and Wisconsin. How will the exit polls look and results in the Presidential and Senatorial races in real-time as they start trickling in on Election Night and beyond, and what are the next steps for the Democratic and Republican parties? We ask this and much more to our panel of experts that include market gurus, political pundits and betting experts.
