Three Dog Night once crooned that “One is the Loneliest Number.” Maybe back then. But that was before anyone saw Biden’s latest poll numbers. Those could make a man feel like he’s all by himself on a desert island.
39. That’s the percentage of Americans who approve of his presidency.
80. That’s how old Joe is.
86. That’s how old he would be at the end of a second term. Let’s just say that Americans are “concerned.”
58. That’s the percentage of voters who feel that Bidenomics have made conditions in the U.S. worse. And that number is trending up.
70 percent. Yep, seven out of ten Americans think that things are “going badly.”
67. That’s the percentage of Democrats who say the party should nominate someone other than Biden.
Ok, but who? Kamala Harris? Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.? Marianne Williamson? You see any viable options there?
Depth, or “bench strength” can mean as much in politics as it does in football. And the Dems’ depth is, uh, very shallow.
In 2016, Democrats nominated the only human being on Earth who could have lost to Donald Trump. History may repeat itself eight years later.
Who is the big loser in this dilemma?
Special Counsel David Weiss has let it be known he will seek indictment of Hunter Biden on gun charges. OK. Go where the evidence leads you. I have no sacred cows. Light him up if he has it coming.
But I have yet to see convincing evidence to indicate Daddy Joe profited from his son’s international business dealings or compromised American security. We’ll see where it goes. However, perception is reality when it comes to voters. And a growing percentage of them now perceive that Joe did cash in. No evidence, of course, but welcome to America 2023.
One more depressing note on my way out the gate on a Thursday morning. We are about to be right back in the COVID soup. And if you think people behaved badly and selfishly at the pandemic’s early peak, wait till you see the chaos and even anarchy that ensues this time.
Hey, what’s for lunch?
