Biden, Trump rallies show sharp contrast amid as coronavirus surges again

President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden gave starkly contrasting messages on Saturday about the coronavirus pandemic, taking their campaigns for the White House on the road to swing states where COVID-19 cases are surging again.

Trump addressed a few thousand supporters at a tightly packed, in-person, outdoor rally in North Carolina, one of the battleground states in the Nov 3 election. He again said America was turning the corner in the fight against COVID-19 and mocked Biden's more cautious campaigning style.

Biden, a former vice president, addressed supporters in vehicles at two drive-in rallies in Pennsylvania and warned of a grim winter ahead unless the Trump administration did a better job of halting the disease, which has killed 224,000 Americans.

Opinion polls show Biden leading Trump nationally, but the race is much closer in the battleground states that will decide the election.

In Lumberton, North Carolina, he told supporters he was offering a fast recovery from the economic damage wrought by virus lockdowns, which have devastated small businesses and put millions out of work.

"It's a choice between a Trump super boom and a Biden lockdown," the Republican president said. "We are rounding the turn," he said, repeating a claim he has been making for months that America is close to getting the better of the virus.

By contrast, Biden warned that the cold months ahead could be even harsher due to a resurgence of the virus, which has killed more people in the United States than anywhere else and is on the rise in several battleground states.

"It's going to be a dark winter ahead unless we change our ways," he said of Trump's attempts to contain the coronavirus.

Biden was addressing supporters in the town of Bristol who had gathered in pickup trucks or cars, many with their windows or sunroofs down, to avoid possible coronavirus infection. Biden's campaign limited each vehicle to a maximum of four passengers.

At one point, Biden called out a group of Trump supporters who were shouting into microphones nearby. "We don’t do things like those chumps out there with the microphone are doing. The Trump guys. It's about decency."

At his event in Lumberton, Trump made fun of the Biden rally, which he said he had seen on television.

"There were so few cars. I've never seen an audience like that," he said. "It was a tiny, tiny little crowd. You could hear the cars: honk honk."

COVID-19 SURGING

The United States set a single-day record of more than 84,000 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, with the spike in infections hitting election swing states Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

North Carolina reported 2,584 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, down from a record high of 2,716 the day before.

Many states have expanded in-person early voting and mail-in ballots as a safer way to vote during the pandemic.

Trump voted in his adopted home of Florida on Saturday, joining more than 56 million Americans who have cast early ballots at a record-setting pace.

Trump cast his ballot at a library in West Palm Beach, near his Mar-a-Lago resort, after switching his permanent residence and voter registration last year from New York to Florida, a must-win battleground for his re-election bid.

In New York state, voters jammed polling places and stood in line for hours to cast ballots on the state's first day of early voting on Saturday. Long lines formed before polls opened across New York City and Long Island, videos on social media showed.

With 10 days to go in the campaign, the pace of early voting could lead to the highest voter turnout rate in more than a century, according to data from the U.S. Elections Project.

Trump has regularly condemned mail-in voting without evidence as prone to fraud, even though experts say it is as safe as any other method.

The large number of early voters is a sign of the intense interest in this year's election, as well as concerns about avoiding crowded polling places on Election Day and reducing the risk of exposure to the coronavirus.

In Pennsylvania, polls show Biden narrowly leading. A Reuters/Ipsos survey released earlier this week showed Biden with a four-percentage point advantage over Trump in the state, down from seven points the week before.

Apart from the coronavirus, the candidates sparred over energy policy, an important issue in Pennsylvania which is the nation's second-largest producer of natural gas after Texas.

Biden denied Trump accusations that he plans to ban fracking, a process to extract natural gas from shale.

"I will not ban fracking, period," he said in Dallas, Pennsylvania at his second rally of the day. "I don't think big oil companies need a handout from the federal government. We're gonna get rid of the $40 billion fossil fuel subsidies, and we're going to invest it in clean energy and carbon capture," Biden said.

At an outdoor, in-person Trump rally in Circleville, Ohio, the crowd booed at a video Trump played showing various times when Biden said he would like to move away from fossil fuels.

Biden got some help from former President Barack Obama, who held a drive-in rally in Miami and delivered a blistering attack on Trump's leadership.

"This pandemic would've been tough for any president because we haven't seen something like this in 100 years, but the idea that somehow this White House has done anything but completely screw this up is nonsense," Obama said.

Of course D.T. does it HIS way, anyone expect anything else?

Repeating what has has claimed all the time - like a tape recorder.

Rounding the turn (wrong direction, my man), vaccine within the next couple of weeks (well, that's quite some statement), making fun of others (what a disgrace), and so on. Just another 9 days and we will hopefully see a real change!

Trump's attracted many who actually believe what they've read on Qanon, RT and elsewhere in wack/fringe media that the virus is a plot launched by alien reptiles, that it's a hoax, that it's just another flu.

I wonder how many will contract the virus at this rally.

As anybody can see on tv, the people at Trump rallies are all wearing masks and are “packed in” outdoors. Trump’s rallies pose no more power of threat than athletes still playing face-to-face and tackling each other , passengers on airplanes and subways , at protests, riots, and demonstrations; people of the ruling class going to the salon and gym and carrying on as normal, etc, etc. It seems everything is ok as long as it’s not a Trump rally—at least according to the media.

Besides, Biden is in no position to criticize. After his last debate, where he stated clearly that his plan is the Trump plan that is already in place, Biden has forfeited all credit on the subject.

The left has an excuse for everything. The 7 Biden supporters they kept in those white circles in the name of the virus a couple of weeks ago was embarrassingly priceless.

"He hasn't shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody except himself and his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show to give himself more attention," Obama said. "The rest of us have to live with the consequences of what he's done. At least 220,000 Americans are dead."

Trump in a nutshell.

He's no emperor, and he sure ain't got no clothes!

Just look everybody!

The contrast is stark indeed.

One candidate is using Covid as a prop for the election and selling a baseless fear campaign to keep Americans scared of their own shadows.

The other treats Covid as any adult with a brain does.

There are too many people that don’t want to admit they’re going to vote for Trump, not even to their own family members. Careful with those. Just saying.

Biden is a wasted “sock puppet” who spent almost 50 yrs with his nose in the public trough. And achieved nothing.

Biden and Harris are yesterday’s train wreck still waiting to come to a halt.

But it will.

That’s America for you. A political class defined by a debauched Democratic Party that is desperately trying to stay ahead of a self promoting reality show host that manages bankruptcy and tax avoidance better than any other business.

Under educated, overweight, over medicated, over tattooed, and overly entitled is no way to rise out moral and financial bankruptcy.

It seems more Trump supporters showed up to the Biden drive-in rally than Biden supporters.

Here we go again folks. Grab the popcorn as the Dem/MSM machine repeats Biden is “up in the polls”. Soon it will be time to cry. Maybe you hate Trump, but when he wins, you won’t see any warmongering. The Dems are now the corporate warmongers. How does THAT sit with ya’ll?

Come on, get real!

This "other" has never shown proof (with "the best words" or deeds) that he has one to boast of. Well, perhaps because he isn't actually an adult (mentally)?

And the 220,000+ dead Americans might disagree (if they could only speak from their graves.)

Biden, Trump rallies show sharp contrast 

Yes, thousands of enthusiastic supporters show up at Trump rallies, virtually no one shows up at Biden appearances.

Opinion polls show Biden leading Trump nationally

Of course, that's going to continue until Trump's landslide victory.

In Pennsylvania, polls show Biden narrowly leading. A Reuters/Ipsos survey released earlier this week showed Biden with a four-percentage point advantage over Trump in the state

That means Biden will lose Pennsylvania in spite of Philadelphia.

Sure, Joe, that's not what you and Kamala said before.

The pubs are ANGRY that Joe was very clear and very believable that he isn’t trying to eliminate fracking, while no one believes trump’s attempt to pretends he’s not racist.

The other treats Covid as any adult with a brain does.

One says in private that the virus is a "killer", "deadly", and "rips you apart"....but tell the public it's "just the flu", and then then holds a super-spreader event that infects over 40 people to include his wife and his son...

Sounds like more liberal desperation rant and nothing better to offer. Hey, did you hear how Trump supporters got under Biden’s skin? Heard not many people there and isn’t it ironic that when Biden holds a rally, the camera never pans at his rallies, but they always pan at Trump’s, now we know why. Lol

The Sun is the definition of a UK trash tabloid. It goes without saying that Murdoch is behind it.

Keep it decent. This isn’t a Trump rally or a Hannity show.

Speaking of the UK, do you remember when Trump retweeted dodgy videos from a UK-based racist organisation and caused the then PM to rebuke him along with other senior members of a Conservative government? He later threw a tantrum and tweeted trash at the wrong Theresa May on Twitter. It caused fury in the UK.

I still can’t work out why the least racist person you’d ever meet did that.

Bob,

Paraphrasing here, but You said one person is screaming nonsense (That’s Trump) and one is dealing with it like any rational adult would (that’s Biden). I know you didn’t mean it that way, but it’s the way any sentient being would interpret it.

I see you misspelled “Kamala”. I can’t tell if you cannot spell, made a mistake, or have more nefarious issues....

Here’s the thing, one party pays attention to public health directives and does socially distanced events watched by lots of others on-line (That’s Biden-Harris, just in case you’re having trouble keeping up)

For example I, from Japan, got to watch Obama rip COVID Donald a new one (several times). Was I “there”? No I wasn’t. Did I see it? yes, I did. It’s called technology.

The other party continues to hold Super-Spreader events for 2 reasons: to feed the ego of a narcissistic sociopath, and to give the illusion of support. (That’s Trump-Pence). They don’t give a fig about the health or well-being of the cultists and rubes that’s crowd in for the chance to hear the greatest hits from 16. It reminds me of the middle-age house wives that crowd the mall to see Rick Springfield’s next comeback tour....

In fact, when asked the most mundane questions, Don can only go 45 out of 60 min.....

These Trump rallies are to feed his cult their dose of fear and hate - to try to get them to turn out at the polls because he already told them voting by mail was fraudulent....even though that's how he voted...

I remember watching Biden on C-SPAN back in the late 80’s and on, and he is not the same guy.

The number of **coronavirus deaths reported in the United States on Wednesday reached its highest in two months***

As the death rate continues to fall. Fantastic, but there is an even bigger problem that Dems never want to talk about...

Everyone knows Hunter had a drug problem.

Worse actually, a lot worse.

Trump tried using it as an attack during the first debate. 

And now the Feds have his HD not good.

Biden gave an eloquent and sincere response, speaking directly to the millions of Americans who’ve experienced drug abuse.

And no one is buying it. Enter the msm doing their darnedest to bury this story.

And now this ‘bombshell’ video is somehow going to damage Biden’s campaign. 

Sorry, I think it’ll have the opposite effect. Not many days to go but trump stays fixated on a 60 minutes interview which hurt his feelings and smearing Hunter. Nice

Well, seems to be working, no one forced Hunter to do the things he’s done and no one told Joe to push his some into this, everyone has a free mind.

Interestingly, the Washington Post did a simulation to account for Bass’ famous oversampling claim (since he’s got nothing else). What they found was that even if the polls, which tend to be correlated (that means they move together, Bass), underestimate Trump support by 4%, which is around the margin of error, Biden still gets 278 EC votes.

In other words, for you who’ve never taken a statistics class, even if the standard deviation is doubled in Trump’s favor, he still loses.

This is the worst case scenario for Biden. If the polls are accurate, He hits 300 EC votes. If they are off by the same amount in the same direction as 2016, 350 EC.

CONDOLENCES.

Or do companies regularly give drug addicts and their Daddy shares in their joint ventures?

Seems to work pretty well for JR, he of the glassy red eyes, excessive snorting and ADHD-level delivery on Faux followed by the crash video delivered from his bed complaining jibberish about Instagram messing with his algorithm.

Cocaine much, JR?

blacklabel: Corruption 101. Give the money to the son,

So what do you make of the NY Attorney General questioning Eric Trump on the Trump family business dealings earlier this month? You know, an actual, real and ongoing investigation into Trump Co?

Fracking is a serious environmental problem.

Air pollution and water contamination due to the toxic chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing are the greatest concerns within fracking sites, while the need for wastewater disposal and shrinking water supplies are also pressing issues directly related to the procedure.

The trumpets never met a conspiracy theory they didn’t like - except for the one that is proven about Russia running disinformation campaigns in America.

That one is too realistic for them. They gain power the more ridiculous the conspiracy theory.

You go on YouTube and Twitter and you see miles of people, Biden you just see him...maybe a car or two. I get why the media doesn’t want to pan Biden’s so called rallies.

Major covid-19 spreader events. Reason why the highest spikes are in republican states. Often people do not wearing masks.

But they’re getting better, death rate is going down and the best part, lower taxes and freedom and No rioting, no wonder liberals are moving there.

Fracking is a serious environmental problem.

So Biden would rather put over half a million people out of work...thought so.

Air pollution and water contamination due to the toxic chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing are the greatest concerns within fracking sites, while the need for wastewater disposal and shrinking water supplies are also pressing issues directly related to the procedure.

And this is the reason why Biden just lost. Big chunk of voters.

225k dead. 80+k new infections TODAY, likely seeded by Covid Don’s super-spreader events.

11 million still unemployed. Democrats passed a second stimulus, which Fed Chairman Powel says is desperately needed, in MAY. The economy is likely slipping back into recession. The first president since Hoover to preside over a net lose of jobs in office

Every qualified Public Health expert says we are heading for a very dark winter, perhaps 500k dead by February.

Take away health care during a pandemic with no plan for replacement (coming in 2 weeks 8 weeks ago) while creating 8 million new people with pre-existing conditions

But sure, let’s fixate on a conspiracy theory that 50 IC professionals have said bears all the signs of a Russian disinformation campaign and that strains credulity to its breaking point.

This is the death rattle of a campaign that is out of time, out of ideas, and out of money.

Isn't that what Trump did with the coal miners? Promised to protect them and secure their jobs but the coal fired stations started to close and coal demand reached its lowest level.

The Covid-19 already took care of the fracking workers.

"The fracking industry has been hard-hit by the COVID-19 economic downturn, and drilling companies are desperate to be included in any federal bailout packages."

no one cares about UK videos you are obsessed over.

Odd, that. Given that the right wing contingent here has often linked to trashy conservative British sites, and their leader, Trump, has retweeted actual British fascists.

Aside from that - this is World News - and whoever "leads" the US happens to affect all of us. For better or (more recently) for worse.

And when President Biden swears in, he should have had plenty of time to learn from his disgraced predecessor's many mistakes in how to handle the pandemic.
