Trump also has “substantially greater support from members of his own party than Biden” from his, “which represents a serious threat to Biden“, said Dukhong Kimassociate professor of Political Science at the aforementioned university.

In the opinion of this academic, Biden “must increase support among African Americans and Hispanics and traditional Democratic Party constituencies” to improve his chances of victory.
