Trump vs Biden 2020 coverage in the GMF

With less than 100 days to go for the U.S. Presidential elections, we take a look at who is better placed to win the race. According to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, Democratic candidate Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by 8 percentage points. He also has a big advantage with undecided voters. What can Team Trump do to claw back the gap? Should Team Biden sit on the lead, or go for the kill? We ask this and much more to our panel of experts that include market gurus, political pundits and betting experts. See the latest guest schedule and join us in the Global Markets Forum!
