A few days after it was apparent that Biden had won the 2020 election all the pundits were clamoring about a Dem mandate and that the country could go about healing from the Trump years.
Personally I think it was BS I did not believe the prediction and still think it was nothing more than a vote against Trump not that the country was ready for a change.
The questions that arise now are simple enough: what caused Trump to lose the election, and to what extent did Americans vote for Biden, as opposed to voting against Trump? Answers to these questions emerge from a careful examination of pre-election polling and Edison’s national exit polling, the latter of which surveyed both in-person and mail-in/absentee voters to collect information on voters’ demographic backgrounds and their political and economic motivations. What we find is that mass anger at racial injustice, the disaster of Covid-19, and the depressed economy that accompanied it, were all chief difference makers in the election outcome.
The closing days of the campaign the polls were showing that Biden had a large lead over Trump in most states….and yet when the counting is done it is about the same as usual….candidates in about n5% of each other…..
So the polls were massively wrong yet again.
Again these so-called “momentary looks” at the election cycle…are made up crap to drive the news reporting not an accurate look at the campaign.
And millions are spent trying to convince the viewers of whatever paradigm they are pushing……
My thought is there is NO mandate…..and unless the Dems change their path they will go down in defeat in 2022 and in 2024…..
Bookmark this post and check me to see if I have indeed predicted the election outcome in the next two votes.
Sadly this nation is in poor shape and I do not think that it can be healed in 4 years….if not then we can start this silly cycle all over again….unfortunately Biden is doing very little to change this country for the better…..
Today, after a contentious election and with the results of the presidential race still uncertain, we are all now looking down at the ground. It’s been four years since Donald Trump dropped the buttered toast of our democracy onto the floor.
After four years face down in the dirt, can our democracy be picked up, dusted off, and restored to some semblance of integrity?
I know…I know….we got that idiot out of the White House…..great….but what will the new guy bring to the country?
So far I see NOTHING new and appears he is trying to remake the Obama years with his personnel….Under Biden we’re set to experience four years (if he lasts that long) of negative creep, a steady recrudescence of the same policies–economic, social, environmental and military–which led us to into the very quagmire where nearly all of us are now inexorably sinking.
Biden is a politician who is unlikely to disappoint his followers for the simple reason that he has few truly devoted adherents and offers them little of substance. Mostly, he delivers on small things, tiny symbolic acts that serve to mask the broader betrayals of movements and aspirations he claimed to represent but never had any real interest in. Unlike Obama, idealism was never Biden’s calling card. His entire career he has sold a brutal brand of pragmatism behind a dental implant smile.
I agree it is early….but the outlook gets dimmer by the day…and we still over a month from the new dude taking the oath.
