    Agreed. And that’s generally the case.

    Thanks... that's very interesting. And surprising almost to the point of unbelievability.

    Just seems odd that it would take them that long to assess how the virus spreads.

    How can that one "poll" imply success because of Trump while at the same time other polls have him trailing Biden by nearly 10%.

    ...doesn't stack up.

    One of the biggest screwups in this whole screwed up response, that's for sure. The other was the total disaster of testing preparations. The biggest was letting Trump anywhere near a microphone.

    The reason I didn't vote for Obama is that I felt like his soaring rhetoric during the campaign never matched his governing, which was far more prosaic. Smart, dignified, capable, transformational - all true, but too often, he didn't aim high enough IMO.

    Clinton did a good job of running his administration, but I think he'd fail #MeToo miserably.

    Funny, the same poll showed overwhelmingly that people thought the country was worse off.
