Rating: This claim is FALSE. A socialist agenda would be one that dismantles private businesses so that the government would control production. Biden’s actions during the Obama presidency, as well as his detailed policy proposals as a presidential candidate, does not show that he wants to get rid of private businesses. Instead, it shows an equal focus on expanding public programs such as Medicaid and education, while working with private companies in areas like healthcare and renewable energy.

Do more women support Joe Biden than Donald Trump?

Claim: Multiple polls have shown that a large number of people who support Vice President Joe Biden are women, and that women will be a key demographic in deciding this election.
Rating: We rate this claim as TRUE. Women make up 51% of the American population and these polls show that Biden has the overwhelming support of female voters going into the 2020 election. This is most likely due to his work as a co-sponsor on the Violence Against Women Act, which reduced domestic violence against women by 64%. His work in the Obama Administration also helped raise awareness of the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses and among young people.

It’s based on unverified rumors from Russian intelligence, with no supporting evidence. It also draws attention away from a Senate Intelligence report that said that Russia did interfere in the 2016 election with the goal of electing Trump. Russia is currently interfering in the 2020 election.
