So far, Joe Biden’s presidency has been distinguished by one tragedy after another, interspersed with hundreds of “senior moments” to instill some confidence. These disasters, however, have occurred because of him, rather than as a result of him.
After a while, even sophisticated propaganda like photoshopped t-shirts and partisan blinders can’t keep the truth from ordinary people. Inflation is something they notice. Totalitarianism is what they see. They notice it in their communities and at their workplaces. They don’t need CNN, Fox, OAN, or MSNBC to tell them what they already know: the president is a failed, flailing mess.
Even in blue and purple states, it’s starting to set in, and it’s starting to show up in polls.
