Why Biden is Winning

The polls clearly show that Joe Biden is heavily favored to win tomorrow. How did he get there?

Biden has been in the lead ever since he announced his candidacy back in April 2019. He is the candidate most suited to the current environment. After four years of chaos, the voters want peace and quiet: a return to normalcy. This is the normal cycle in Presidential politics: reconciliation after a good guy/bad guy election. As a quiet, older, long experienced politician, he offers exactly that.

Ever since he began his campaign, Biden's strategy has been: sit on his lead and run out the clock. He followed that strategy to win the nomination, then he continued it ever since. He has done nothing newsworthy: the perfect strategy.
