It Wasn’t The Science That Changed, It Was The Polls

This end of the Pandemic, the Endemic, is becoming the most confusing situation since the government manipulated the COVID data to their benefit. I wrote earlier this week that we would have to pull the power from the dead hands of Democrats, and they are proving this true.

The science hasn’t changed since the birth of Omicron, but the CDC, Fauci, Biden, and Democrat Governors were not ready to give up the control. Reluctantly, states are starting to roll back mask mandates, but school boards and teacher’s unions in some states are saying not so fast. Airlines, trains, and school buses are still hiding behind federal regulations, so they do not have to make a decision. It is always easier to point at the other guy as the bad guy.

We are watching the Democrats struggle to decide whether to go with the Razzle Dazzle or have Biden drop back and launch a Hail Mary. The Dems have waited too long, and time moves quickly in politics. As the ratings continue to slide for Biden/Harris, the down-ticket candidates feel the impact. Campaign contributions will dry up as donors do not throw money into a sinking ship as rich as they are.

Here in New Hampshire, Senator Maggie Hassan faces a tough challenge for reelection. She is not popular, and the once Red Granite State is returning to its roots. In the last quarter of 2021, Hassan ran ads on FOXNEWS every 15 minutes. Who was she trying to attract on the right-leaning network? The ads were annoying and drew attention to her desperation to preserve her political future. The ads have disappeared, and so has her chance of returning to D.C. Politicians are not graded on results but polling numbers. She falls short on both.

The Left is working hard to put some of their signature stances into reverse. Defund the Police, and COVID restrictions are but two. We saw Biden travel to New York last week to show his support for Police and fighting crime. His visit fell flat as he forgot his cape and mask in Delaware. Not everyone has gotten the message on Cops as Corey Booker pledges to continue her crusade to dismantle the Police. Ilhan Omar is probably in Booker’s camp but really, who cares? She is irrelevant.

The sudden changes in Mask Mandates in Blue states show the Democrat desperation. Suddenly overnight, the science has changed for them, or they are protecting Stacey Abrahms and Gavin Newsome, who can never find their masks. Biden is not onboard with the Governors, setting up confusion in the ranks. The CDC is stuck somewhere in the middle. The Real Clear Politics approval rating for Biden came out this week, and at 39%, the Dems have to hit the brakes.
