A man trying to topple Donald Trump and win the presidency has spent a lot of years in his Basement. Never has America seen a candidate racking up so many hours from the comfort of his own home. In the past month he has selectively hit the campaign trail, only to hunker down again in recent days. He's always cites safety-His team hoping voters will recognise and reward his prudence. But there's perhaps a MORE subtle strategy they're also employing-let Mr Trump do the talking and make mistakes, so Joe doesn't have to. His opponent would describe life in the former Vice President's hometown of Wilmington as suitably sleepy right now. The local theatre, where his team has built a studio for occasional events, shows some very subtle signs of life. There's rumour that the restaurant we're eating in across the road might be used by him on Election night. It IS about as humble as you can get for possible political coronation when you think of the glass-cover colossus Hillary Clinton fatefully chose in New York. But this IS the candidate who's rail against big rallies and showy moments-man pitching to restore civility and normalcy to American political life. Holding a potential star-stud COVID-fest wouldn't exactly help his cause. Polls will tell you Biden's cautious strategy has pay dividends-He's leading in double digits nationally. But down at the local skate park in Wilmington, young voters sound either unimpressed or fretful about his socially distant low-profile approach. Michael has a different take, claiming Biden's past is politically and pushing him outside IS geriatric abuse, anyway. Heading North up the Delaware River to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, there's less scepticism about what IS a key swing state. And just as well for Joe Biden. He needs big turnout among black and Latino voters in urban centres like this. It could make or break him. He insists Democrats will get big numbers, that all his friends are voting and that Biden will do much better with people of colour than Clinton. Why? I asked him. Because I think a lot of people are thinking what I'm thinking-if Biden gets elected President there's not gonna' be no talk about building walls right after the first year. Democratic strategists believe four years of racial division in the United States and big demographic changes, including a growing hispanic population, will make a difference this time round. The fact he's draft in Barack Obama to stump for him in the city today, though, IS proof his team know he needs a boost. It's push to add some stardust from one of America's most popular political figures while reminding everyone Biden work by his side. There's even wild talk he might get the kind of turnout his former boss did in 2008. That would be stunning for a white guy in his 70s who has mixed record on race and would say a lot MORE about the moment than man.

Debate challenges abound

To some voters, Joe Biden is an everyman-scrappy champion of the working class from Scranton, Pennsylvania. To others, he is a creature of the Senate who spent 47 years in a swamp. Supporters see the former Vice President as a savvy moderate who can reach across the aisle. Critics charge hes aging relic, or even Trojan horses for socialism. Mr. Biden is, in other words, different things to different people. But almost everyone agrees on who he isnt: President Donald Trump. Tonight, Americans will get to see a contrast themselves, when Mr. Biden and President Trump go toe-to-toe in their first televised debate. And as the nation faces what may be its most consequential election in generations, race may ultimately pivot to this question: Is being anti-Trump enough to win Mr. Biden the White House? Polls show the former longtime Senator from Delaware doesnt inspire intense passion so much as a kind of basic comfort. But the flip side is that he doesnt seem to inspire hatred, either-even among Republicans. Hes 77-year-old comfortable shoe, say Ari Fleischer, who served in George W. Bush's administration. People have feel for him. Hes not Hillary-hes likable enough. In the summer of 1999, law student Michael Migliore was working as a legal aide in then-Sen. Joe Bidens ' office in Wilmington, Delaware. While at a staff picnic at Biden Home, he ran into Senator himself in the basement. We ended up talking-Im not kidding-hour and a half, said Mr. Migliore, now Counsel to New Castle County Council in Delaware. We talked about everything under sun-family, law school, civil rights, legislation he had worked on. Whether youre royalty or regular person, he has a knack for really relating to people, which most people dont have, Mr. Migliore add. He makes you feel special. Stories like this about Mr. Biden, Democratic nominee for President, are legion. And if they involve personal struggle-love one lost, battle with stuttering, as he has had-Mr. Biden is on it. His own stories of loss-of his first wife and baby daughter in a car crash and the death from cancer decades later of his son Beau-have given him a of empathy and sense of purpose. This is a personal Mr. Biden that many constituents and those around him know. To some, he is an everyman, scrappy champion of the working class from Scranton, Pennsylvania. To others, hes ultimate Washington insider, creature of the Senate who spent 47 years in a swamp. Supporters see the former Vice President as a savvy moderate who knows how to reach across the aisle. Critics charge hes aging relic, hopelessly out of step with his own Party and even, to some Republicans, Trojan horse for socialism. After 50 years in politics, Mr. Biden is, in other words, many different things to many different people. But almost everyone agrees on who Mr. Biden isnt: President Donald Trump.
