Every Time Biden Defies Expectations, Trump’s Strength Weakens

“Democrats are understandably cock-a-hoop at the results so far of the midterm elections to Congress so far, which show them to have avoided the electoral massacre they had feared and the Republicans hoped for. Instead, they stand a better than even chance of holding onto the Senate while their probable loss of the House will be by a far lesser margin than many had predicted. One result of the outcome of the midterms is that President Joe Biden will be more likely to stand for re-election in 2024 and former President Trump, who will soon announce if he will stand again for the presidency, has been weakened.” (11/10/22)
