Who's Going to Run Against Joe?

It’s still too early to place too much faith in what the polls say may happen nineteen months from now, but the latest surveys show that Joe seems to finally be heading in the right direction and Trump is in the reverse. Back in December, Real Clear Politics (RCP) had Joe at 41% approve and 54% disapprove. As of today, Joe is at 44% approve and 53% disapprove. Not that much of a change, but at least the numbers are better, not worse.

Meanwhile, the latest on Trump-o shows him at 39% positive and 56% negative, which isn’t something to be taken lightly, because most of these polls were taken before the New York DA slammed Trump-o with 34 indictments, none of which are as chicken-shit as Trump-o would you himself and everyone else to believe.

Meanwhile, according to FiveThirtyEight, the bad-good gap for Joe is 10 points, for Trump-o the gap is the same for the gap with RCP, namely 17 points.

What all these polls show is that right now, respondents to political pollsters don’t particularly like either of the major candidates, which doesn’t come as a great surprise given, if nothing else, the fact that both Joe and Trump-o are basically seen as a pair of old farts.

Trump was exciting when he first came out back in 2015, but his excitement was for all the wrong reasons and now everyone, or almost everyone is sick of his act. Yesterday one if the media stations interviewed a Trump-o supporter in Florida who said that she would be so disappointed if Trump lost in 2024 that she might never vote again. As grandpa would say, ‘gai gezinta hai,’ (read: good for you.)

Meanwhile, Joe has been so quiet since Trump-o got kicked in his fat ass by the Manhattan DA that maybe Joe is no longer around at all. Actually, at today’s Easter Egg Roll party for kids at the White House, Joe told NBC that he is planning to run in 2024 but just hasn’t decided when to announce his re-election plan.

As far as I’m concerned, Joe shouldn’t make any announcement at all. He should just show up at the Democratic convention, which is going to be held either in Atlanta, Chicago, or New York. By the time the actual convention rolls around, both New York and Atlanta may also be hosting criminal courtroom proceedings against Donald Trump. Which would probably mean that Chicago would be the best bet.

In any case, Joe’s strategy of on keeping his mouth shut is a perfect response to the ever-increasing craziness coming out of Trump-o’s mouth. The latest was a nasty attack on his former Attorney General, Bill Barr, whom he called ‘slovenly and pathetic’ after Barr claimed that Trump might have trouble for taking classified materials back to his Mar-a-Lago estate.

I’m going to cut this comment shorter than usual because there really isn’t a lot to say. Joe is quietly sitting in the Oval Office reading some reports, the entire GOP field is a bunch of nobodies at this point who between them don’t arouse the slightest bit of interest or suspense.

Robert Kennedy, Jr., is running for President on the Democrat(ic) line? And he thinks as someone who’s opposed to vaccinations that he’ll get any votes?

He should run as a Republican. He could actually at least get the nomination because of his scatter-brained opposition to public health.

Where’s a really good Trump-o rant? We could use one right now.
