Yeah... a judge says he's a fraud, and nobody anywhere globally is surprised.
Tomorrow...just wait until we hear the innuendo and theory at the Biden impeachment hearing. The GOP leaders have conceded there is nothing new...but the world is about to end if we don't impeach Biden (as a means to eliminate one of the potential weaknesses of the twice-impeached former Prez).
National polls are pointless. An election based on electoral college votes makes 7 states with the potential to go either way (MI, MN, WI, PA, NC, GA, AZ) the only thing that really matters. Including likely or registered voters from CA or TX means absolutely nothing. Florida used to matter...but it's clearly red these days.
In the primary season, state-by-state polls can be interesting because there is an orchestration/timing to the votes, and one state's selections can impact the fundraising and momentum of states later in the mix (see: Biden 2020 - Super Tuesday).
The reality of voting is that people today aren't focused on the choice of Biden vs. Trump for the next 4 years...they're focused on the current news cycle and the past. When it comes time to vote next November, beyond the fact that Trump may well be facing jail time, the recent history of Republican losses in special elections and 2022 results are likely to continue for voters. Abortion is a huge deal. The SCOTUS was changed by Trump appointees...and overturned a ruling that provided rights to every woman of child-bearing age in the US. Rightly or wrongly, Trump is to credit/blame.
If Biden does anything with the border, and inflation / a recession don't go crazy... it's hard to imagine Trump can win in heavily unionized states like those that can swing the election. He's going to try to say he's pro-labor now...which is pretty amusing. He'll say it...and the trolls are going to make silly comments about how "Joe has America on strike"... but if Americans somehow vote Republican for their support of organized labor, we are indeed living in bizarro world...making the GIF above a generally consistent worldview.
PS - I think the branding around Bidenomics is a mistake for Joe. I think the economy, when looked at on a global basis, has proven to be amazingly resilient... but people don't think beyond their own wallets and when gas and groceries are high, telling people it could be a lot worse doesn't work. Add in the non-stop grievance and blame machine on the Right...and placing your own name on what people are negatively experiencing is foolish.

So Kurt is defending his 3 nominees...and Trump's not.
In an interview Sunday, Trump said on NBCâs Meet the Press that he thought a Republican primary rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, had made a âterrible mistakeâ by signing a law that bans abortion at six weeks, before most women know they are pregnant. His rambling remarks also suggested support for a federal ban on abortion: âWhatâs going to happen is youâre going to come up with a number of weeks or months. Youâre going to come up with a number thatâs going to make people happy â¦ I would sit down with both sides and Iâd negotiate something, and weâll end up with peace on that issue for the first time in 52 years.â
In Trump world...suggesting he's the guy who can fix this...after throwing gasoline on the fire... is just another day in the office.
Can we NOW agree it wasn't an accomplishment...when the guy who did it denies responsibility?
Depends where you stand. Both pandering to/appeasing the reactionary religious right and fans of FedSoc is an accomplishment of sorts. Cui bono?
