Biden losing momentum by playing prevent defense

Michael McKenna, Washington Times

Despite everything that has happened in the last six months, Biden has been unable to put away the president. Team Biden has been playing prevent defense for five months now, hiding the candidate and hoping he can hold off Trump for just another 80 days. The problem with that is by allowing Trump to hang around, Biden has placed himself in a position in which the slightest mistake or hiccup on his part, or the slightest bit of good news for the president — a vaccine? unexpected economic good news? — may touch off a surge, even a modest one, for the president that may be dispositive.
