Who would win a rematch between Joe Biden and Donald Trump if the election were held today?

“Biden, probably,” a fool might say.

Believing that he’d prevail isn’t the foolish part. I agree that Biden would be more likely than not to win, although he’s no better than a 60/40 favorite. And 40 percent odds come through all the time.

The foolish part is giving a moment’s thought to a pointless question. “Who cares? The election won’t be held today” is the correct answer.
