As the November Presidential elections continue to draw nearer, both the Biden and Trump Campaigns are beginning to take shape. Trump is positioning himself as the Law and Order candidate against a backdrop of ongoing unrest, protests and riots surrounding police brutality, while Biden is positioning himself as the empathetic, everyday American candidate.
Though recently, CNN’s Don Lemon decided that Biden’s tact of tacitly siding with protestors may not be helping him in the polls, stating:
“It’s showing up in the polling. It’s showing up in focus groups. It is the only thing right now that is sticking. The riots and the protests have become indistinguishable.”
“I think this is a blind spot for Democrats. I think Democrats are ignoring this problem or hoping that it will go away, and it’s not going to go away. “What they can do, and I think maybe Joe Biden may be afraid to do it … he’s got to address it. He’s got to come out and talk about it.”
And on polling numbers, it appears Lemon is correct, with recent polling by CNN showing that Biden has fallen from 55 percent to 50 percent of the polls, while Donald Trump has climbed from 41 to 46 percent.
Though if Biden’s loss in the polls is indeed the result of the ongoing protests, often comprised of Black Lives Matter and Antifa members, the Presidential candidate may find it difficult to distance himself from them — as Antifa.com links to the 2020 Biden campaign website.

Whether this was a decision made by the Biden campaign, a member of Antifa, or just a troll, remains unclear. However, for those looking to find more information on the self-proclaimed anti-fascists, they will instead find themselves looking at none other than the Democrat Presidential nominee.
