5 reasons Biden won the 2020 presidential election

Eventually Joe Biden came out on top of the 2020 presidential election and there are some clear reasons why he was the winner.

The 2020 presidential election

The 2020 presidential election was one like no other. With lots of uncertainty and accusations from both sides, packed with massive coverage and debate on social media. In the end, Joe Biden was victorious, winning more votes than any president in the history of America. Whether you love him or hate him, the fact is, he won (whether Donald Trump is willing to admit it or not). There are a few reasons we've outlined why he was able to beat Trump in this latest election - now you can use the same techniques to not only win political elections if you ever decide to run for president, but also to win influence and debates in both your personal and professional life.

So, without further ado here are the defining characteristics and factors that led to Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election:

Understanding the audience

First and foremost, to be successful in any type of debate you need to understand your audience. This comes through detailed research and analysis of the people you are going to be speaking to. Every successful leader in history make sure they understand the audience they are speaking to. Biden’s presidential campaign was no different, his teams took the time to analyse and understand his audience (the American people), but they did not stop there. All his speeches, content, promotion, and his entire campaign were tailored to the needs, wants and fears of his audience.

Supply and demand

Once you have done the necessary research into your audience you will know everything you need to win any debate. As I briefly mentioned before now what you need to do is speak to those needs, wants, desires and fears. Don't just simply tailor your speeches your content and your ideas to this information, by understanding the needs of your audience you can begin creating value that supplies that demand. As long as you're supplying the demand of your audience there will always be potential for success.

Identifying opportunities

Identifying opportunities is one of the biggest defining factors whether you win influence or debate in any situation. Take the time to understand what opportunities are available for you because if you don't know all the options then how can you know that you made the best decision.

In the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden did exactly that he noticed and understood that there was a huge gap in the voting demographic in young voters who haven't yet registered. As a result, a large chunk of his campaign focused not only on getting voters to vote for him but to get these voters to register & up to vote in the first place. Because he already understood his audience he knew that a lot of these young voters were likely to vote for him so it was beneficial for both the country as a whole and his presidential campaign for more young voters to sign up.

Playing against the other guys weaknesses

Every single person on the planet has strengths and weaknesses. This is also true for the presidential candidates in the 2020 presidential election. Donald Trump has a lot of weaknesses and these weaknesses quickly became the strengths of Joe Biden. All he needed to do was understand where his weaknesses lie and use them against him. This could be done by simply bringing them to light which he did in many debates, or something else that bided did a lot took the time to insure himself against these weaknesses by making sure that in these areas specifically, he is strong.

In life, you don't necessarily have to be the greatest possible candidate for an opportunity, in most cases, you simply have to be better than the other competitors. By taking the time to understand your opponent’s weaknesses as well as strengthening yourself in those areas you make yourself as a candidate seem that much stronger and competent.

Playing to your strengths

The last technique Joe Biden used to win the 2020 presidential election is playing to his strengths. As I mentioned before every person on the planet has strengths and weaknesses. Not only do you need to take the time to understand your opponent weaknesses, but you also need to take the time to understand your own strengths and weaknesses. Once you understand these you can begin improving and strengthening the weaknesses, and using your strengths to your advantage.

One prime example of this scene in the 2020 presidential election states. As you may know, some states are historically blue or historically red, and candidates on both sides of the election know this. By playing to strengths like these you can easily generate a momentum which you can then use to carry you forward to success further down the line when times get tougher.
