Cameron Hilditch of the National Review had a column published in late September that was titled “The First Debate Showed Why Biden Will Win.”
Hilditch argued that Biden had the advantage of not being Hillary Clinton and also believed that Trump’s performance in the first debate was especially horrible.
“The truth is that Donald Trump as a candidate was tailor-made to beat Hillary Clinton, but his style of politics doesn’t adapt very well to less hated opponents,” wrote Hilditch.
“Put him in a room with a candidate even marginally more sympathetic than Hillary and he comes across as little more than a latter-day Biff Tanner, tormenting whichever hapless McFly is unfortunate enough to be in close proximity to him.”
“Not being Clinton was enough for Trump to win. It stands to reason that not being either of them will be enough for Biden to win as well,” he added.
