Biden will win and, by all indications, will take the Senate along with him. Obviously, the entire country is still a little shell-shocked from 2016, when Clinton was expected to prevail. This year, however, is much different. Biden has consistently led in the national polls for months. Also, his lead in a handful of states like Arizona and Pennsylvania is well outside the margin of error. Trump’s approval rating has hovered around 43%, while Biden is above 50. It’s very difficult, but not impossible, for an incumbent to win reelection with those numbers.
