Experts say the U.S. will likely have to learn to live with the virus. https://t.co/Bd2SdWymco— ABC News (@ABC) September 25, 2021
It has been a slow news week.
There isn’t much to report on except for the fact that the images of chaos coming out of Afghanistan last month have been replaced by images of the chaos on the border due to the Haitian invasion in Del Rio, TX. The Democrats are also bogged down in negotiations over how to use budget reconciliation to pass their two massive spending bills in Congress. No one really knows at the moment how that will ultimately shake out although it seems more likely that the progressives will surrender again to Joe Manchin.
Now that Blumpf has largely disappeared from the public stage, the Biden coalition is falling apart. Specifically, Joe Biden is losing the swing voters who elected him president: suburbanites, White college educated voters, Independents, moderates, women and middle class voters.
“If an election were held today, a substantial number of those who voted President Joe Biden in November wouldn’t do so now, a new I&I/TIPP Poll shows. This comes after a spate of recent polls from TIPP and others suggesting Biden’s political support is in a freefall as Americans question his leadership on issues ranging from COVID-19 to the chaos on the U.S.’ southern border to the recent botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. …
Also interesting is where Biden lost the most support – among women, suburbanites, moderates, and the middle-class. In other words, the key groups that helped put him in the White House.
The poll found that only 49% of women said they’d vote for Biden today, down from 57% who said they did so in November. Among suburbanites, 41% would vote for Biden now, down from 48% who’d actually cast their ballot for him.
Biden’s support among moderates went from 56% to 47%. Among those making between $50,000 and $75,000, it fell from 54% to 44%. …
September was the biggest monthly decline in the IBD/TIPP Presidential Leadership Index’s history, plunging 9.3 points, from 58.7 to 49.8, a 15.8 percent decline.
President Biden’s decline surpasses President George W. Bush’s previous monthly record of 15.6% set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in September 2005.
It is also the largest monthly point drop, surpassing President Bush’s April 2001 drop of 8.7 points. …”
We always knew the Joe Biden honeymoon would end this summer. It turns out though that he has suffered the biggest drop in the polls of any president in the last thirty years.
In the aftermath of the 2020 election, we dissected the election results and concluded that it wasn’t fraud. Trump improved with non-White votes. Donald Trump lost the election because he lost moderates and Independents in the suburbs. He lost because he lost too many White voters who were just tired of him and who thought he was an asshole and who voted for Joe Biden largely because of COVID.
Now that Trump is gone and Joe Biden has failed to tackle COVID due to the Delta variant and “hot vax summer” was a flop and life hasn’t returned to normal as had been promised, Joe Biden is cratering with those people. COVID is driving our politics, the weather is cooling off and fall is here. How bad will COVID get this winter? Will there be yet another variant that is worse than Delta? Can the Democrats hold their coalition together if they are equally exposed as being unable to handle COVID?
Note: Mike Lindell is saying that Trump could be reinstated by the Supreme Court after Thanksgiving. Don’t hold your breath.
