Not the Indian reservations - brand new reservations located on brownfields and low lying coastal areas and active coal mines and abandoned industrial towns... you know, places where they could practice making America great again!

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

We can also add superfund sites so they can deal with their legislative ecological disasters via their choice to non-regulate capitalist polluters. smile

Here’s the favorable/unfavorable ratings of Biden, Harris, Trump and the congressional leaders: Make of them what you will.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/other/FavorabilityRatingsPoliticalLeaders.html

Here’s the latest polls on Trump vs. Biden.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2024/president/us/general-election-trump-vs-biden-7383.html

And Trump vs. Harris

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/e...neral_election_trump_vs_harris-7386.html

Another for New Hampshire where Trump is leading Biden and leading Harris.

https://www.thetrafalgargroup.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/TRF-NH-22-Gen-1213-Poll-Report.pdf

All presidents have their ups and down, with the probable exception of Trump who stayed down for his entire presidency. Trump never climbed above 48%.. These polls are also taken with inflation, rising prices which turns people off on Biden and the Democrats. Which I’m sure won’t be a problem come Nov 2024. Now for next years midterms, inflation, rising prices could be Biden’s and the Democrats worst nightmare if it continues. The party in power always gets blamed for a bad economy.

The polls leading up to an election, within 4 months of an election are the ones to pay attention to. Not polls 3 years out. I highly doubt Trump nor Biden will be running in 2024, that’s 3 long years from now. One other thing, which I think is big. These polls are basically showing dissatisfaction with Biden and company on the economy. The Trump over Biden, Harris is fueled by dissatisfied, frustrated independents. Now one must remember, Trump has been out of the spotlight, off TV, off twitter, etc. But it would only take a week or two of Trump in front of the camera to remind these independents why they disliked him so much. That in my opinion would change their votes to where they’d once again be voting against Trump.

One last thing, to understand this, one has to look at all of America, especially independents, the non-affiliate swing voters, less to non-partisan voter on how they view the political scene today with its rising prices putting a big hurt on their wallet, making life miserable for many of them. To where they're worried about being able to afford gas, food, housing etc. Not all this other stuff so important and dear to the Democratic Base.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Don't forget: We are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic, not a Pure Democracy. That means we have a Constitution and laws, and don't run everything as a popularity contest. If we were a Pure Democracy, Trump could win in 2024. If we are a Constitutional Republic, Trump should still be in prison in 2024.


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.

I know we're a democratic republic. I'm sick and tired of not having nice things because of Conservatives.

Hmm
