The protracted crisis is not a theory, but real life
The fall in the rating of US President Joe Biden is becoming irreversible. The latest measurements give him only 36% support, at the level of Trump’s worst performance at the end of his term. It is reported by Fox news citing an opinion poll from the University of Quinnipe. Centers working for Democrats have similar results. At the same time, the democrats bury themselves.
By putting forward from their own ranks, a team selected on the principles of “selective attractiveness” rather than ability to manage, they created all the prerequisites for failure. Biden has become toxic simply because he is not up to the job of president. He turned 79 years old. Let us remind you that President Reagan, who has “fallen into complete Alzheimer’s”, has already left office at the age of 77. For Americans, age-related cognitive impairment in Biden is no longer a matter of debate, but a commonplace.
Joe Biden kind of talks to the press
Donald Trump is triumphant. He talks about his return, stating that he can participate in the 2024 election campaign. Trump is convincedthat “the Democrats have already lost the White House.” As shown poll of Emerson College, Trump is now supported by 45% of voters, while the head of the White House is only 43%. And although the top of the Republican Party is not enthusiastic about the idea of re-nominating Trump, they willingly use his services in undermining the position of the Democrats.

Is it lowered or raised?
The reasons for the rapid disappointment with the Democrats, as always, are mostly internal. Inflation in the United States reached a record high in many decades, exceeding 6.2%. And this is not the limit. According to the consumer price index, the cost of gasoline by October increased by 49.6% compared to the previous year, and the cost of liquid fuel, which is used to heat houses and industrial premises, by 59%. This will inevitably lead to a new spiral of price increases. Certain food categories, including steaks and bacon, have risen in price by 20%. The shortage of a number of basic goods has become an unheard-of phenomenon. GDP this year (in contrast to China’s main competitor) is likely to sag again. The printing press is no longer effective. Trillions of printed dollars have already been pumped into the economy, and this bubble cannot be further inflated.
Leading Fox news Tucker Carlson is outraged that under Biden, power in the United States belongs to “fanatics” who are ready to destroy the country to the ground in order to build a “perfect society.”
The journalist considers the plans of the White House to close after the disconnected Keystone XL another major oil pipeline, the so-called Line 5 – and this is in the midst of an energy crisis. “This pipeline carries over half a million barrels of fuel from Canada to Michigan every day, which we desperately need. Close it? Let’s see what happens to gasoline prices! They are already record high “… In Europe, even the German Greens condemned the new US administration’s sanctions against Nord Stream 2 as interference in its affairs.
Americans are very sensitive to migrants who have become a problem. Having made the fence on the border with Mexico almost the main subject of ridicule of the Trump administration and refused to complete it, Democrats are now reaping the benefits. Over 200 thousand illegal immigrants cross the southern border into the United States every month. The authorities of the border states are languishing, the population is dissatisfied. The stirring up of passions on television over 2-3 thousand refugees on the Polish-Belarusian border only intensifies this discontent – compare the numbers!
With a high level of vaccination, America again came out on top in the world in terms of incidence of covid – up to 100 thousand new cases per day. Two months ago, 52% of respondents were approving of Biden’s fight against coronavirus, 41% disapproving. Today the situation has changed. 49% of respondents do not approve of his work to overcome the “pandemic” and only 47% approve.
The American press has already forgotten about the “Afghan shame”, but it is remembered by the families of veterans and just people who are not indifferent. Assessment of Biden’s actions in the field of foreign policy, according to polls, is one of the lowest: the international activities of the president are considered successful only 33% of respondents.

Following Biden, the Democratic Party is also sinking. In a poll conducted by Democratic loyalists Washington Post and ABC News, it turned out that if the Congressional elections were held today, then 46% of the adult population would support the Republican candidates and 43% – the Democratic candidates. Among the registered candidates, 51% give preference to Republicans, and 41% to Democrats. This is a record high for Republicans. Such a gap in their favor is not remembered even the oldest observers in Washington DC.
This was clearly manifested when regional elections were held in early November in three democratic strongholds – the city of New York, the states of New Jersey and Virginia. Only in New York, Democrat Eric Adams won the mayoral election relatively calmly, albeit with considerable losses compared to the previous vote. In the de facto New York suburb of New Jersey, the struggle for the post of governor went on to the last. When counting 88% of the votes, Republican Jack Chatarelli was in the lead, and only at the very end, under extremely dubious circumstances, the victory, which Chatarelli does not recognize, was given to Democrat Phil Murphy with an advantage of 0.1%.
But in Virginia, this suburban area of Washington, the Democrats were expecting a complete failure. Joe Biden, his wife Jill, and vice-president K. Harris personally campaigned for their candidate for governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe. Even on election day, Biden said as he left the Glasgow climate summit: “I think we will win in Virginia”… However, for the first time in 12 years, Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin, who was actively campaigned for by Trump, won with a confident advantage.

It is easy to imagine that in the wavering states that cast their electoral votes in the last presidential election to Biden, the defeat of his supporters would now be even more palpable. Among the Democrats, voices in favor of the fact that for the sake of the “higher party interests” the president may need to be sent to “well-deserved retirement” before the deadline are growing. Otherwise, the Democrats will lose Congress in 2022, and the White House in 2024.
The situation is complicated by the fact that it is not clear how to deal with the even more unpopular Vice President Kamala Harris. According to a recent collaborative survey USA Today and Suffolk University, its support is even less than that of Biden – 27.8%. At first, they called her “over-ambitious”, they predicted the position of Dick Cheney under Bush Jr. Moving her to the place of the president would mean ruining the party altogether.
Kamala Harris is pleased with herself
The mouthpiece of the Democrats TV channel CNN burst out unexpectedly harsh criticism of the vice president. The report on the topic speaks of growing mutual discontent between the Biden administration and Harris. According to some sources CNN, the administration and among the largest donors to the Democratic Party believe that Kamala Harris is not up to the task, and the Biden cabinet turns a blind eye to “ingrained dysfunction” in her work.
And how can democrats be in power now? Remove two people at once – both Biden and Harris? It’s unthinkable.
Various versions of the future behavior of the ruling team in Washington are expressed, up to the most alarming and fantastic. One thing is clear: the protracted crisis in the United States is not a theory, but real life. At the same time, the “wounded Leviathan” in the image of America, losing control “Over waters and lands”, will “hit its tail” more than once before finally sailing over the ocean. The splashes from these blows can cover many people for a long time.
