One of them will be officially elected as President after November 3, but after dueling Town Hall events which took the place of their planned second debate, both Donald Trump and Joe Biden each earned new nicknames on social media with pop culture references—Archie Bunker and Mr. Rogers.

Both characters, who were the stars of “All In The Family” from 1971-1979 and “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood from 1968-2001,” were used to describe both the President and his Democratic Challenger during their events.

Many quickly took to Twitter to reference Bunker, who as a character exhibited some bigoted and ignorant behaviors on the show, as they watched Trump during his Town Hall on NBC with Savannah Guthrie, stating that they didn’t want four more years of Bunker in the White House.

However, others also noted that it was unfair to refer to Bunker when comparing Trump because while the character wasn’t always perfect, he still expressed humility and had the ability to change—something they didn’t believe Trump had the ability to do.

Meanwhile, comparisons to Mr. Rogers started to appear in relation to Biden, after Trump aide Mercedes Schlapp criticized him by comparing him to the man who hosted the long-running children’s program. That led to others criticizing her for thinking Mr. Rogers was an insult.

With the election just two and a half weeks away, the competition between the two men is only going to be more fierce, as they each try to win over the remaining undecided voters in the important swing states.

As of press time, average polls put Biden ahead of President Trump in several different states and scenarios, with the FiveThirtyEight forecast showing only three scenarios where he could take the Presidency. The projections also state that Trump has a 12/100 chance of winning while Biden has an 87/100 chance, and when it comes to the popular vote, the President has a 4 in 100 chance of winning versus Biden’s 96 in 100 chance.
