2 candidates, 20 voter questions: Comparing and contrasting Biden, Trump town halls

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate, conducted dueling city hall activities on Thursday after Trump, who had tested positive for COVID-19, declined to partake in simulated forms in the Miami second presidential debate that night.

The two municipal halls, moreover, were on the surface as diverse from each other as the individualities of the candidates but parallels still remained, such as the relative period the Biden and Trump spoke, the amount of electoral problems they posed and the subjects debated.

Though the municipalities were more than 1,100 miles away, they took place with Trump in Florida and Biden in Pennsylvania in two of the most important 2020 swing nations.

Here's a study of the two campaign activities' similarities and contrasts.

Who most spoke?

The case of Biden was an hour and a half, about 30 minutes longer than Trump, which offered former Vice President ample flexibility to address questions.

He spoke to Trump's 32 for about 49 minutes total and also had to ask for about about the same proportion of his activities compared to how long their town halls had been going.

Biden City Hall length: one hour, 30 minutes roughly

Trump City Hall length: nearly 1 hour

Biden's period spoke about:

Trump's period spoke about:

This did not take effect until about 30 minutes of the city hall 's conclusion that Biden existed and proceeded to address the query of the electorate.

Trump has listed Biden a number of times: 8

Biden alluded to Trump amount of times: 10 10

Trump should not carry Biden's mask

Images from these activities suggest that although Biden was wearing a mask as the City Hall was about to begin, Trump emerged without a mask after a strong COVID-19 examination after a previous hospitalization.

Though Biden was on stage and far from the polls, Trump invited the crowd from a couple of yards away at an outdoor town hall at the Perez Art Museum, in Miami, in pictures from his rally in Philadelphia 's constitution hall.
