Biden v Trump election rematch looks close

Trump has never accepted that he was beaten fair and square by Biden in 2020.

The Republican put aside his legal and financial problems to win the party's nomination in emphatic style. Now he wants to get back into office.

Biden, meanwhile, has faced concerns about his age and calls to step aside for a younger candidate from some members of his party and the liberal media.

At 81, he is America's oldest president but, in the past month, he has mounted a comeback which began with his commanding State of the Union address. The odds on him winning this year's election shortened.

It is sure to be a bitterly-fought campaign but the closesness of the contest means it should be even more ferocious than four years ago as the pair do battle with America at a political crossroads.
