Biden and Trump Town Hall Approaches and New Odds Drop

In lieu of the traditional second presidential debate, the Trump and Biden administrations schedule competing town hall meetings for Thursday at 8 PM. The Trump town hall on NBC, and the Biden town hall on ABC.

America’s two knights of politics armor up for the ensuing rating war.

The election campaigns reach a watershed moment with the town halls, allowing voters to pose the tough questions to the Republican and Democratic candidates.

Historically sub-standard in the town hall format, Trump will struggle fielding questions without his horde of cheerleaders. Biden may cope better without his opponent present to neg his rejoinders.

New betting lines provide insight into the meat of both events.

Arrange your cutlery readers and cut open some of these odds with me.

Any voter asks Biden about a COVID relief package?

  • Yes -250
  • No +170

Any voter asks Trump about a COVID relief package?

  • Yes -300
  • No +200

Congress stalemated on an economic relief package for businesses and individuals affected by the pandemic. Voters eagerly await aid and want to know how each campaign plans to catalyze the legislature.

Which town hall will have better Nielsen ratings?

  • Biden (ABC) +155
  • Trump (NBC) -220

The Trump campaign has not elaborated on many vital issues, such as a healthcare plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, COVID-19 response, and tax issues. Voters likely will tune into NBC to hear how the President handles these questions.

Will any voter say Hunter at the Biden town hall?

  • Yes +400
  • No -700

Will any voter say hunter at the Trump town hall?

  • Yes +110
  • No -150

While the Biden administration draws attention away from Hunter, Trump likely expects a Hunter-related question. Trump’s strategic implementation of the Hunter scandal creates space for him to sew dissent among undecided voters.

Will any voter ask joe Biden about court-packing?

  • Yes -120
  • No -120

  • No -160

  • Pennsylvania -200
  • Ohio +300
  • Florida +400
  • Iowa +500
  • Michigan +600

Biden needs Pennsylvania for its electoral college votes; the town hall broadcasts from Philadelphia. Trump trails Biden in Pennsylvania, and his town hall broadcasts from Miami. Trump may mention Florida first, a critical swing state for him.

  • Over 7.5 -140
  • Under 7.5 +100

How many times will Donald Trump say china?

  • Over 11.5 -120

In spite of Donald Trump’s vast vocabulary and highbrow phraseology (not), odds are China, and Biden will make regular appearances in the President’s vitriol.

These odds, and many more not included in this article, will close at 8 PM tonight. Make sure to get yourself some popcorn for whichever dumpster fire you decide to watch burn tomorrow.
