[Hillary] Clinton Leads Trump 43 percent to 41 percent.

It's those buttery males. That's how she lures voters in.

This is idiotic. Being well below 50% and within the margin of error is hardly a better than someone who's had a major setback recently.

As mentioned before, Biden has a history of coming back after being down in the polls. Clinton has a history of losing to Trump. Harris has been out of the spotlight for a while and is a wildcard at this moment. If she were to revert back to being like she was in 2020, she probably wouldn't beat Trump.

Being a Black woman? Yeah, she's probably stuck with that baggage.

Doesn't look like Joe is going anywhere. ("An effort by some Democrats to seek an alternative to President Biden as the party's nominee faced new uncertainty Tuesday, with frustrated lawmakers struggling to find a path forward after the president said he was dead set against stepping aside. [...] Inside House Democrats' own closed-door meeting, the mood was somber, with some lawmakers shedding tears in an emotionally wrenching gathering." www.wsj.com )

He's in a toss up race with guy that he beat once before.

A guy who Indies know more and more each day is someone they don't want to vote for... most people don't want to vote for Trump. Or Biden.

44 percent of Republicans didn't want him to run this year.

@#8 ... Doesn't look like Joe is going anywhere ...

At this point, I'd agree.

Yeah, that's not a headline the skeptics wanted to see.


Then I see things like this...

Biden's inner circle kept signs of aging under wraps
www.wsj.com

... Senior White House advisers for more than a year have aggressively stage-managed President Biden's schedule, movements and personal interactions, as they sought to minimize signs of how age has taken a toll on the oldest president in U.S. history.

The White House has limited Biden's daily itinerary and shielded him from impromptu exchanges. Advisers have restricted news conferences and media appearances, twice declining Super Bowl halftime interviews"an easy way to reach millions of voters"and sought to make sure meetings with donors stuck to scripted pleasantries. ...

Factually beat by virtue of being the president now - correct.

But, that election was taken on the backdrop of an unprecedented pandemic - economic shutdowns and fear - and with the mistaken idea that Biden could handle it better (shocker, 2x the people died under Biden). Moreover, this was when Biden was running on 'hopes and dreams' rather than an actual track record. In 2024, Biden will be running on his record inflation and real wages having decreased during his presidency leaving Americans poorer. Further, he singlehandedly proved Trump right on the border and even endorsed Trump's tariffs against China.

Basically, Americans can no longer vote for Joe Biden thinking it is 'a return to normalcy' as the far left ------- policies have fundamentally reshaped life in the US and utterly destroyed long standing institutions like the FBI and Higher Education.

Biden marks one million U.S. COVID deaths after losing political battles (May 2022)
www.reuters.com

... President Joe Biden on Thursday commemorated the COVID-19 deaths of 1 million people in the United States, marking what he called "a tragic milestone" and urging Americans to "remain vigilant" during the ongoing pandemic.
In a statement, Biden acknowledged the impact of the deaths on families left behind and urged the country not to "grow numb to such sorrow."

The United States on Wednesday reached more than 1 million COVID-19 deaths, according to a Reuters tally, crossing a once-unthinkable milestone about two years after the first cases upended everyday life. The loss represents about one death for every 327 Americans, or more than the entire population of San Francisco or Seattle.

Most of those deaths, some 600,000, happened after Biden took office in January 2021 at the peak of a major wave of the disease. ...


So, how many of those deaths were because of fmr Pres Trump's policies?
