With less than three months to go before the US presidential election on November 3, Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, is polling ahead of incumbent Republican President Donald Trump in key battleground states. GoNews’ Editor-in-chief Pankaj Pachauri gives an overview of how the US election, as being conducted amidst a pandemic, will be consequential not just for the Americans but for the world, including India-US diplomatic relations, given Indian-origin Kamala Harris was announced as Biden’s running mate in the White House

Four years later, Biden has an 8.3 percent national lead at 50.2 percent and Trump at 41.8 percent.

At last, does the US economy do better when Democrats are in the White House?
