    Why is Trump so far behind in the polls? Why can Biden stay home?

    Here’s one reason. Only the true-believer MAGAs believe he’s doing a good job against a pandemic that has killed 135,000 and counting.

    Two-thirds disapprove of the job he is doing fighting the pandemic.

    Even retaining 33% is rather mind boggling, at this point the guy basically doesn’t even acknowledge there is a problem. Totally failed leadership. I saw somewhere he hasn’t even spoken to Fauci in 2 months.

    If Trump would do the same, his poll and approval numbers would go up.

    Yes it is. But he’s dropped 7 points in less than a months on the Coronavirus, and things will get a lot worse before it gets better.

    It is an historically bad blunder. Many governors, including Republican governors like Hogan and Devine, have treated this crisis seriously and their approval ratings are way up, and deservedly so. Americans usually rally around their presidents in times of crisis. Not this guy. Hasn’t earned it.

    Instead, Trump whines about how unfair it all is—to him.

    The only way you guys can react to a real news story, something that actually happened, is to make up lame stuff ... ? ... "Oh yeah, well Joe ... ..."
    Jeezus, guys ...

    I think Trump and his people decided the weather might depress attendance. They'd be left standing in a drafty, echo-y airplane hanger, with a light rain drowning out Trump's erudition. If he thought a rally would be wildly successful, he'd hold it in a hurricane. It's certainly not about the safety of the attendees.

    "Forecasts from the National Weather Service did not indicate a “big storm” in coastal New Hampshire. Tropical Storm Fay was forecast to sweep through the New York’s Hudson Valley and upstate region into Canada by Saturday afternoon, weakening to a depression."

    "The weather system was predicted to bring periodic showers to Portsmouth on Friday night and Saturday, with the chance of rain falling to less than 40 percent by 5 p.m. Saturday and below 20 percent by 8 p.m. Winds were forecast to reach 10 to 15 mph Saturday."

    Alabama? Really?

    Based on Trump’s highest approval rating that would be 2006 Alabama, which went 6-7 (46.7%).

    They finished the season with 4 straight losses. So, good analogy!

    Weather.com's forecast for tomorrow in Portsmouth. They scheduled their convention in Jacksonville ... in August ... and 15 percent chance of rain is scaring them off?
    Oh, boy

    Of course. That’s my point and it favors Trump.

    Then somebody needs to follow Joe Biden around with a giant flashlight behind his back for the next 4 months. Let him keep hibernating and leave the self immolation to Trump.
