Three weeks with basically no change after the withdrawal from Afghanistan. Biden and Company experienced a 10 drop in their approval or positive numbers during August. But since 31 August, there have remained the same. No improvement, no drop. I had expected to see a slow improvement which isn’t happening. Perhaps these numbers will remain constant where they’re at until the next unforeseen major event. Time will tell.

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.
