The upcoming U.S. presidential elections have shaped up to be a highly competitive affair, particularly within the Republican Party, which boasts a diverse array of candidates, each bringing unique perspectives and visions for America’s future.
Leading the Republican lineup is former President Donald Trump, who, after launching his bid in November 2022, stands as the most formidable contender. Trump’s campaign is marked by promises to revamp the government and pursue retribution against political rivals.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, known for his assertive leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his strong stance on educational and cultural issues, emerged as a prominent figure before withdrawing in January 2024 to endorse Trump.

Tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, the youngest in the GOP field, ended his campaign in January 2024, endorsing Trump. He has infact joined forces with Donald Trump.
North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, who ended his campaign in December 2023 and endorsed Trump, was noted for his focus on the economy, energy independence, and national security.
Former Vice President Mike Pence withdrew from the race in October 2023. He was inarguably the least popular candidate.
Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina Governor and U.N. Ambassador, is still in the race.
Other notable mentions are Michigan businessman Perry Johnson, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, Larry Elder, a conservative radio host, Asa Hutchinson, the former Governor of Arkansas, and Chris Christie, the former Governor of New Jersey. Most of them have supported Trump.
So, it is clear that the only challenger in the GOP for Trump is Nikki Haley.
But after Donald Trump secured a significant win in the New Hampshire Republican primary, edging closer to the GOP nomination for a potential rematch with Joe Biden in the presidential race, it is clear that Haley is on her way out.
Haley’s criticism of Trump’s mental fitness and caution of potential chaos under his leadership had limited impact in New Hampshire, seen as a minor obstacle in Trump’s campaign. New Hampshire’s results further narrowed the race, especially after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s withdrawal following the Iowa contest. Trump, who previously won in Iowa, maintained a strong lead with minimal campaigning in New Hampshire.
Haley, aiming to appeal to independents and moderate Republicans, emphasized that most Americans oppose a Trump-Biden rematch. There are two types of losers, good losers and bad losers, Haley seems to be the latter.
Meanwhile, Democrats in New Hampshire also voted, with Biden winning as a write-in candidate amidst a dispute over the primary’s timing. Biden, focusing on abortion rights, criticized Trump’s stance at a Virginia rally. Following the New Hampshire results, Biden’s campaign remarked that Trump’s victory signifies the complete takeover of the GOP by the MAGA movement. Although the old fart forgot to mention that his own party doesn’t exist anymore, what exists now is a group of gender-confused-body-type-maniac-climate-obsessed-illegal-immigrant-loving-russia-hating-rioting-warmongering bunch of idiots.
As far as approval ratings are concerned, Trump ranks highest in being perceived as the “strongest leader” and the “most qualified” to serve as president. Additionally, he scores well in representing voters’ values and understanding their problems.
More than 70% of Republican adults would be satisfied with Trump as their nominee, compared to 57% of Democrats who would feel similarly about Biden. Biden’s approval rating has plummeted to 33%, the lowest for a U.S. president in the past 15 years and lower than Trump’s lowest rating. His approval is especially low among women and Black and Hispanic voters.
In a potential Biden-Trump matchup, Trump is viewed as more mentally sharp and physically fit for the presidency.
So, it’s clear as day that In the most likely scenario of a Biden-Trump rematch in the upcoming presidential election, current indicators suggest that Donald Trump will decisively defeat Joe Biden. The GOP’s robust backing reflects Trump’s perceived strengths in leadership and qualifications, signaling a solidified base ready to mobilize for him.
Contrastingly, Biden’s historic low approval ratings, lack of popularity across key demographics, especially the groups that were instrumental in his 2020 victory, concerns over his mental sharpness and physical health, paint a challenging picture for the re-election bid of the political fossil.
So can Republicans rest easy? Turns out, that they cannot. There is a much bigger opponent that Trump needs to crush. And that opponent is called System.
The 2020 U.S. presidential election, which resulted in Donald Trump’s defeat to Joe Biden, has been a subject of intense debate and controversy. The aftermath of the election was marked by widespread claims challenging the legitimacy of the results, leading to a significant erosion of public trust in the democratic process.
Allegations of widespread voter fraud, irregularities, and manipulation of voting machines surfaced, sparking a flurry of recounts, audits, and lawsuits. Social media platforms were inundated with various theories, many appearing credible, which further fueled public skepticism. This period of uncertainty was characterized by nationwide rallies and a pervasive sense of doubt about the integrity of the election outcomes.
Trump and his allies undertook numerous legal and political strategies to challenge the election results. These efforts, however, were ultimately unsuccessful, as their claims were consistently disputed by Biden and his team and rejected by election officials and courts. Many Independent fact-checkers, too, remained skeptical though.
The contentious atmosphere surrounding the election results culminated in the events of January 6th, 2021, when Trump supporters gathered at the U.S. Capitol. While the event was largely peaceful, it was widely portrayed in liberal media as a siege or attack. Recent revelations indicated the involvement of some FBI officers in the crowd, which later turned violent. This incident not only deepened the divide in American society but also cast a shadow on the integrity of law enforcement agencies.
The handling of the election and its aftermath provided fodder for political rhetoric, notably the issue of “White Supremacy,” which became a prominent theme in Biden’s narrative. This further exacerbated the polarized political landscape and raised questions about the future of bipartisan cooperation and fair elections in the United States.
Several specific claims about the election process remained unresolved in the public eye. Questions about the role of Dominion voting machines and whether they were subject to manipulation lingered without clear answers. Accusations of votes being cast in the names of deceased individuals and illegal immigrants were never thoroughly investigated or conclusively dismissed.
Additionally, concerns about the security and reliability of mail-in ballots, a voting method that saw a significant increase due to the COVID-19 pandemic, were raised. However, definitive resolutions to these concerns were not provided, leaving a segment of the population doubtful about the authenticity of the mail-in voting process.
The 2020 election, with its controversies and unresolved allegations, has had a lasting impact on the American political landscape. It not only challenged the trust in the electoral system but also intensified the existing political polarization. This episode in American history highlights the crucial need for transparency, accountability, and trust in the democratic process, essential for the preservation of the nation’s democratic ideals.
So there! Biden can defeat Viveks and Rons, Nikis and certain rat faced ex VPs but can he win the election? Can he defeat the system? That remains to be seen.
