Does the news cycle ever slow down when it comes to 2020 U.S. Presidential odds? Every week we get another major story that shakes up the odds. This last week it was President Donald Trump getting the coronavirus and quickly recovering. Who knows what this week holds. What we do know is that the latest 2020 U.S. Presidential odds have moved toward challenger Joe Biden and the latest polls show Biden with a solid lead. Does that actually mean anything? That is the question, as four years ago Hillary Clinton had a similar lead and lost. Let’s look at 2020 U.S. Presidential odds.

Odds Move Toward Biden
It was just a few weeks ago that the 2020 U.S. Presidential odds were basically a pick. The odds moved slightly toward Biden after the first Presidential debate and they moved toward Biden again after Trump got COVID-19. It is somewhat surprising that the odds and the polls have moved toward Biden because Trump has recovered quickly from the virus. Most people would view that as a positive, but the media has painted it as troublesome because Trump has downplayed the virus. Most people in the United States want to get back to normal and the reality is that the virus is not that dangerous. When 95-99% of the people who get the virus survive, it is not a national or world crisis, but yet that is what the media wants you to believe. Trump has shown that even someone over the age of 70 can get proper medical treatment and get past the virus. What the media has failed to tell people from the beginning is that almost all of the deaths, and there have been hundreds of thousands in the United States, have occurred among the eldery who already had underlying health conditions. Almost everyone survives this virus and it has been shown that lockdowns do no good. This has never been about saving lives; it has been about getting power and keeping it.
Inaccurate Polls and Odds Again?
Four years ago it was Trump trailing Clinton in the polls and in the odds and there was a supposed bombshell with Trump talking to Billy Bush. That tape was supposed to hurt Trump and while the odds moved, the overall poll numbers were wrong and Trump ended up winning the election. The question is will it happen again?
We know with certainty that there is a great divide in the United States. No longer is the United States a country where everyone is working together for a common goal. Today’s United States is split between people who still believe in values and morals and believe that a bright future is possible with hard work and then those people who believe the government should give them anything and that the United States is a racist country that should be burned down.
There are many people who believe that the country is headed for civil war because of the deep divide. A recent YouGov poll of 1,505 voters found that more than half of the people believe there will be an increase in violence because of the election.
"A close, contested election in our hyper-polarized political climate could very well produce isolated incidents of partisan violence," Alex Theodoridis, an associate professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, said to the media, "My research, and work by others, shows that most partisans are willing to metaphorically dehumanize those from the other party, and that this dehumanization predicts greater tolerance for partisan violence."
What would a civil war in the United States look like today? Would it be isolated incidents similar to what has already occured with the rioting and looting in some of the major cities or would it be armed confrontations in multiple cities? Would the effects be felt in all areas in terms of the economy, sports, civics, etc? Most reasonable people hope that we never have to find out.
