On Tuesday 3rd of November the US goes to the polls to elect a president and this promises to be one of the strangest and possibly, nastiest contests in recent memory.
Not only is the country suffering the ravages of the pandemic, but the people are politically divided more than ever before.
I'm not American, but it's impossible to ignore the caustic politics of the last four years and yes, I do care who wins, even if it is establishment vs maverick.
The Financial Times is giving Biden a very healthy lead in the polls, but then a week in politics is a very long time, with many headlines yet to come.
Is Biden man enough to withstand the broadsides from Trump? My feeling is that it can only get nastier, but will Biden turn the other cheek and can he afford to?
