    There isn't going to be a Biden inauguration. Biden lost.

    The results say that Biden win, and is expected to win the electoral college vote. Trump keeps crying about mass vote fraud, but doesn’t seem to be able to prove it.

    Biden will be wearing a walking boot from a fracture from a fall (Playing with dogs) over the weekend.

    If he is not around for being sworn in-- what happens? Does it go to the House for Prez and Senate for VP? Harris is not yet and in this situation won't be sworn in as VP in time to step up.

    So Harris sworn in as VP after House selects Prez?

    Or ? ? ?

    Are you asking about the unlikely event that Biden does not go to his own inauguration because he has a hairline fracture in his leg? There is no reason why Biden could not be sworn in wherever in the world he happens to be at noon on January 20, so if he's alive, it's hard to picture why it would not happen. But if that did happen, Harris already would be VP by then (the VP is always sworn in before noon so that the president can be sworn in at noon).

    Suppose Biden dies on Jan 10? Or anytime it occurs before he is sworn in. Thus regardless of VP sworn in or not, there is no Prez to succeed.

    That situation is covered by the 20th Amendment. If Biden dies before January 20, Harris will be president.

    Oh, so when she heard Biden fell and injured his foot and reportedly responded-- dayum, it was planned he hit his head may be accurate?

    I was wondering if he would do a 2024 rematch. ONly took 2 years of obama ( biden will be more of a socialist than obama) turn out. Seems when diversity more and more comes to some areas they get less liberal. The riots this time did not have the effect becuase of how things were with mr floyd and reality is he was not saint. What happened was wrong but he put himself in the situation only argument is that they should have let him up. If i were there i would have let him up within two minutes and then right back down if he resists but knowing people are taping it would be CYOA

    Only one President has managed a "comeback" - with an intervening term in civilian life - and that was Grover Cleveland (a Democrat).

    There *are* similarities: Cleveland lost swing states he'd won in his first election, and it cost him the race. Interestingly, at least one of those swing states (Indiana) was lost due to (verified) Republican voter fraud.

    There are also differences: that election, the Democrats ran on a protectionistic pro-industrial platform (favoring high tariffs) which galvanized the Northern, industrial states.

    In this (2020) election, it wasn't about platforms. There was no voter fraud. It was about one group who loves Trump to a fellatory degree, and another group which was purely anti-Trump (Biden was incidental, just a placeholder of someone not-Trump). Trump has demonstrated that his "brand" is not the winning brand; there's just no strategic reason for him to run again in 2024.

    I think he *will*, H. Ross Perot style... he might even assist in securing a 2nd Biden (or more likely, Harris) win in 2024, since he'll draw support from the "serious" GOP contenders.

    In fact, the ONE scenario I can see for a Harris win *ever* (because it's wildly improbable otherwise) would be a three-man race of Harris versus the Republican nominee versus Trump as an independent.

    I think race or civil war is 3x as likely with harris as biden. Many of trumps policies are popular it seems a majority of americans thought we should have a citizenship question on the census and also think illegal immigraiton should be cracked down on. Now many voters are stupid hence our founders never intended universal suffrage.

    There are many biden voters who agree with trump policies just hate trump. I am not sure if he could pull it off but if things go bad enought they could. Lets not forget even some of the biggest liberals were saying before covid they did not see any democrat "on stage that can beat trump" This election was a covid election. I really am almost positive he would have won/ or came down to 1 state of not for covid. Now with riots and all htat other stuff happening under a biden admit trump could win. Not impossible.

    Trump's brand is so unpopular that he managed to pull in nearly 18% more votes than in 2016. Yeah, his brand really sucks.

    2016 - 62,984,828 votes
    2020 - 74,222,484 votes (estimated)
    Increase - 11,237,656 votes
    Increase % - 17.8%

    Too bad Trump couldn't have been as popular as Black Jesus was.
    2008 - 69,498,516 votes
    2012 - 65,915,795 votes
    Decrease - 3,582,721 votes
    Decrease % - 5.2%
