On November 7, 2020, the major media networks called the 2020 election, announcing that Joe Biden had been elected 46th President of the United States. Although Donald Trump continues to pursue legal challenges, his pathway to claiming the 270 electoral votes needed to win appears to be tenuous at best. Accordingly, most people have moved on with a presumption that Joe Biden is not only the President-elect, but that President Trump’s challenges will prove unsuccessful.
In the aftermath of any presidential election with a change in party leadership, the question arises as to the likely focus of the first 100 days. Protiviti has published a Flash Report in which we summarize 10 likely priorities of the President-elect’s administration in its first 100 days. We also present potential implications of a Biden administration on various industry sectors.
Our analysis and supporting commentary are based largely on our review of the Biden campaign’s policy statements. We identify possible sector winners and possible sector losers, presuming there will be a Republican-controlled Senate (to be determined by the January 5, 2021, runoff election in Georgia).
