Early Encounter

The 1st presidential debate of the 2024 election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump should be a historic one. We usually never see these debates as early as June, and CNN promises to host this 90-minute debate in a crowd-less studio with the ability to mute a candidate’s microphone when it’s not his turn to speak.

That could cut down on the viral moments, but it is important to hear these candidates actually talk policy and substance for the voters tuning in Thursday night.

From Economy to Indictments

While we don’t know the list of questions from CNN, we can assume which topics should come up:

  • Inflation and the economy
  • Healthcare
  • The Israel-Palestine conflict in Gaza
  • Other foreign policy (Russia/China)

It would also not be surprising if Trump’s indictments are directly questioned, and for CNN to ask if he will accept the results of the 2024 election.

Debate Dynamics

Oddsmakers have made Trump the favorite to win the debate at –150 odds.

Trump, should he follow a measured script and stick to his talking points, is expected to do well on topics like inflation and the economy, immigration, and foreign policy.

Age may not be a factor as the consensus opinion shared by some pundits is that both candidates are too old for office.

Abortion has been a controversial topic for Republicans ever since Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court. This is expected to be a heavy talking point for Biden.

Also, Trump is arguably more pro-Israel than Biden. It remains to be seen how much time Biden will dedicate to the Israel/Gaza conflict.
