"Ultimately Americans WANT a government that works for them."
I agree with this.
"They want a government that thinks big"
No, they don't. They see the mess the government makes of all their programs filled with waste and abuse.
"that makes their lives better"
"that fixes roads and bridges"
Given we already pay for that via gas taxes, hell yes. Unfortunately, we know that they do not do a good job at this and the more money given towards these efforts will just get diverted.
"improves rail and broadband,"
No. I learned my lesson voting for HSR in CA. NEVER AGAIN. Broadband? Maybe on a city level but this should be private industy.
"replaces old, worn-out infrastructure like water systems and the electrical grid"
This is supposed to be done by developer fees. The problem happens when people leave Dem run cities and the remaining population cannot maintain all the infrastructure.
"people are looking to government because they see that unbridled corporations have managed to make a few people filthy rich, while the rest of us are falling out of the middle class.

Only for the losers that got useless educations or are lazy and/or stupid. What people see now after COVID is a totally corrupt beast that is intent on crushing your small business, keeping your kids stupid, and ensuring you cannot work so you are reliant on them for a handout. Yes, for some this is an appealing prospect unfortunately.
