Biden arrives in Nashville ahead of final presidential debate

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden arrived in Nashville Thursday (October 22) ahead of his final debate with President Donald Trump.

Aides say Biden, 77, needs to deliver a disciplined performance to appeal to the undecided voters and not to allow Trump to get under his skin with attacks on his family, especially his son Hunter, a favorite target of the president’s.

One Biden adviser said the Democrats’ aides want him to counter Trump without seeming un-presidential. He is expected to again bash Trump’s handling of the pandemic, with cases on the rise in several states, while arguing that the outbreak has had a disproportionate economic impact on low-wage workers.

September’s contentious first debate between the pair was watched by at least 73 million viewers. Trump, 74, passed up another planned debate last week after it was switched to a virtual format in the wake of his COVID-19 diagnosis.

The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll showed Biden ahead by nine points nationally, down from 12 points during the first week of October. He retained a sizeable edge in the competitive states of Michigan and Wisconsin.
