Life Cycle Analysis: Donald Trump vs Joe Biden

By: Miftahul Qorib: Mathematical instructor and Life Cycle Modeling Researcher

As we know that this life is unpredictable. Sometimes we have an easy life when everything goes smoothly. We might feel like this life is our hand when everything we do is a perfect one. On the other hand, life frequently feels like as tough as coral reef in which anything we do seems like a wrong choice. We feel like all doors are closed which make us to think that the world does not like us anymore.


In this 2020 U.S. election, I would like to discuss the possible outcome of the presidential election based on Life Cycle Modeling. We will discuss both candidates including their running mates. We will see if there is any correlation between personal life cycle with the outcome of the election. 

According to Life Cycle Modeling, in 2015 – 2017 Trump’s cycle was the Best one (2016 became the U.S. President). His next cycle, in 2018 – 2020, is Careful and high spending. This phase is one of his lowest cycle. If he is not careful, there is possibility that he will fall in a slippery road. Since this is one of his lowest rounds, there is possibility that he might have a hard time dealing with many issues in his life.

This can be a real challenging time when so many things might unexpectedly go wrong. Since the election is in 2020, he might need to work extra hard to win this election. A good thing is that in 2021 – 2023 his life cycle changes to Wealth (a good one). A person in Wealth cycle generally will have an easy way to earn money. There is possibility that he will do well in his businesses. His financial cycle in 2021 – 2023 is zero means that he will spend lot of money during this period. He might do a major spending in this cycle.

Next, let discuss President Trump vice president, Mike Pence. In 2016 – 2018, he was in one of his best time (Vice President). Starting in 2019, Pence’s cycle changes to Sincere. Sincere means that he needs to minimize expectation by accepting anything come up in his life.


An individual in this cycle generally will have a hard time achieving their goals. It might be hard to make one’s dream come true during Sincere period. This can be a very challenging period for him. However, if he can minimize his expectation (increasing sincerity), there is possibility that his life becomes easier.

Since 2020 is the lowest point during Sincere cycle, so he needs to minimize his expectation and be sincere. His cycle will change to Best in 2022 – 2024. His financial possibility in 2022 – 2024 period is 4, so there is possibility that he will do a major spending during this cycle.

Generally, President Trump and Biden have similar life cycles. Based on life cycle table, in 2017 – 2019 Biden might have a pretty rough time (one of his lowest point) and needs to be careful dealing with his daily life. In addition, his financial score is not that good, 4, means low income or high expenses.

However, starting in 2020, there is possibility that his life cycle changes to a better one (Wealth). Since his financial score in this period is zero, there is possibility that he might have extremely high spending. The next cycle (2023 – 2025), Biden will be in Careful period. If he is not careful, he might have a rough time. His finance situation in 2023 – 2025 is zero which means that he might have extremely high spending or low income.

Lastly, in 2015 – 2017, Kamala Harris has a good cycle, Wealth, and a good financial condition. Her good cycle might change in 2018 – 2020 to Sincere. This means that in this Sincere period she might have a hard time achieving her dream. Financially, there is possibility she will increase her expenses or lower incomes from 2018 – 2020. The next cycle, 2021 – 2023, she might have another rough cycle and need to be careful. It seems like her financial situation is not in a good shape, or her income might decrease tremendously.

In conclusion, both running mates (Pence and Harris) has a similar cycle in 2020, Sincere, which means that they might have a hard time achieving their goals. Trump life cycle will change to a better one in 2021, while Biden’s cycle might have already been in a good situation in 2020. 

Based on the discussion, there is possibility that President Trump won’t be reelected in 2020. However, because his life cycle change to Wealth in 2021 – 2023, this means that he will have a successful period expanding his personal businesses. Since his financial cycle is zero from 2021 – 2023, President Trump might invest a lot of money intensifying his companies. 

 On the other hand, Biden will probably be elected in 2020 and he will still be in a good period until 2022. Even if he is not elected as president, he might still be in a good condition by 2022. However, in 2023 – 2025 his life cycle will start shifting to Careful which means that he might be dealing with many issues in his presidency (if elected) starting 2023. If he takes care of the people well, the people will support him once he faces unfavorable period from 2023 – 2025.

Finally, we will see the real result of the election next week in November 3rd, 2020. This analysis is solely based on Life Cycle Modeling using public data gathered from online.

    Very good analysis. The life cycle is predictable and can be a great way of measuring outcomes. Let’s hope that the outcome of this election is for the better of all of us. Thank you for your report.
