“Donald Trump is the glue of the Democratic coalition. At least, that’s the only logical conclusion to be drawn from Politico’s reporting that President Joe Biden’s plan for the 2022 midterms is to turn ‘the campaign into a contrast with Donald Trump and the Republicans.’ This strategy was also telegraphed at the White House Correspondents Association dinner this past weekend, when Biden quipped: ‘We had a horrible plague followed by two years of COVID.’ Maybe the lesson is that Biden doesn’t learn lessons? The hypothesis that Democrats can run and win against Trump when he’s not on the ballot was already tested on a sizable and diverse control group: the commonwealth of Virginia.” (05/03/22)
