Election 2020 Trump or Biden Newsman Picks A Winner

Former AP Newsman Bryant Thomas is fairly sure that Joe Biden wins the Presidency. That, despite the huge and enthusiastic crowds that are turning out for President Trump as he crisscrosses the nation in the final days of the campaign. But Reporter Larry Sparano is not so sure it will turn out that way. Here’s why there is a difference of opinions:

Trump Masking Blame for Covid-19?

Is President Trump “masking” the blame he should be taking for not emphasizing –until lately– the importance of wearing a mask to prevent the spread of Covid-19? CNN’s Erin Burnett thinks so, and says it’s ridiculous that Trump is trying to shift the blame to governors and other officials of state and local governments. Will Trump’s disregard of masks lose him the 2020 election? That’s what Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio are talking about today:

Biden’s Baggage Too Heavy a Lift?

A number of polls still show Biden comfortably leading Democratic hopefuls in his quest for the nomination.

Here’s Larry in discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Biden and Iowa: A Barometer of What?

19 candidates, not including Joe Biden swarmed through Iowa this past weekend, looking for support among voters who will cast ballots for President in the Iowa caucus   –that’s the first-in-the-nation selection of preference for president, and it takes place even before New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary. So, support there is important for any person who wants to become the next Commander-in-Chief.  But polls show that support for Biden in slipping among Iowa voters, down some five to ten percent.  And the same slippage is being seen nationally.  And most surprising, perhaps, are polls showing that the most important attribute voters are seeking in a candidate is someone who can beat Trump.  They consider that more important than a candidate that shares their values. And at this point at least, the perception among voters is that Biden is that candidate.  But will he remain the best bet as we move toward the 2020 presidential election?  That’s what On-Target’s Larry Sparano discussed today with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
