Joe Biden has expressed his willingness to engage in a discussion with Donald Trump. "I don’t know when, but I am happy to debate him," the President stated. On the other hand, Trump humorously suggested they could debate in a courtroom amidst his ongoing criminal trial.

In an interview with the renowned but often provocative radio host Howard Stern on Friday, President Joe Biden articulated his readiness for a debate with Donald Trump. "I am, somewhere, I don’t know when, but I am happy to debate him," Biden said during the live broadcast in New York. This marks the first explicit statement by the current President about a potential election debate with the Republican contender.

Trump took to his social media platform to reply to Biden's suggestion. "He’s in New York City today, although probably doesn’t know it, and so am I, stuck in one of the many Court cases that he instigated as (...) In fact, let’s do the Debate at the Courthouse tonight - on National Television, I’ll wait around!" Trump mocked, taking a jab at Biden.

Who will win elections?

The presidential elections are scheduled for November 5. A joint poll by "The New York Times" and Siena College reveals that, if the election were today, 45 percent of voters would opt for Joe Biden, with Donald Trump slightly ahead at 46 percent. The response "I don't know/hard to say" was chosen by 8 percent of the participants.

In an earlier survey, the former president secured 48 percent of the vote, while the latter garnered 43 percent. The report indicates that Biden's popularity has slightly increased, though he is still less favored than Trump, whom voters view more positively amidst general economic concerns.

Another study conducted by Ipsos for Reuters shows that 41 percent of voters lean towards Biden, and 37 percent favor Trump.

Nevertheless, it's the electoral votes that will ultimately determine the outcome of the election.
