Trump Polling Worse on Pandemic Than All 50 Governors

A survey of nearly 23,000 Americans across every state shows Donald Trump’s response to the pandemic gets a lower rating than every governor in their own state.  While this is not too surprising considering none of the governors (to my knowledge) has mused about people being injected with cleaning fluids, it is interesting to see how…

New poll shows Trump trailing Biden … in Texas

We’re months away from the election, it’s just one poll, it’s the slimmest of slim leads, etc., etc. All the usual caveats apply.
