Politics, elections, personality plays a major part. Personality can play a major role in popularity which also plays a major role in politics and elections. Biden won because of Trump's obnoxious, uncouth personality more than anything else in my opinion. Especially among independents who probably wouldn't have voted for a very bland and unenthusiastic, non-charismatic candidate.

Obama had a very good and friendly personality, he won twice. Folks may or may not have liked his policies, but they liked him as a person. Something one can't say about Trump. A good majority of folks didn't like him as a person in 2020.

Personality plays a bigger role along with being charismatic, being able to gather public support than most would think. My two cents anyway.

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.
