Bad news gets even worse for Biden when RFK Jr is added to the mix

A new batch of polls released this week by Bloomberg/Morning Consult show former President Donald Trump ahead of President Joe Biden in head-to-head matchups in seven battleground states. The results are as follows: Arizona, Trump +3; Georgia, +8; Michigan, +5; Nevada, +8; North Carolina, +10; Pennsylvania, +3; and Wisconsin, +5. 

Trump’s advantage increases dramatically in polls that include independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Dr. Cornel West, and Jill Stein. The results show Trump’s lead in Arizona expands to 8 points when these candidates are added to the mix; Georgia, 7; Michigan, 6; Nevada, 12; North Carolina, 13; Pennsylvania, 3; and Wisconsin, 8. It’s worth noting that in 2020, Trump won only one of these states: North Carolina, by a margin of 1.34%.

The Bloomberg/Morning Consult survey is only the latest to show Trump’s growing strength in swing states. In November, a New York Times/Siena College poll found that Biden was trailing Trump “in five of the six most important battleground states.” Other polls have yielded similar results.

What would account for Biden’s dismal performance? One of the best explanations I’ve heard lately came from Dr. Sherry O’Donnell, a Michigan physician, pastor, and 2024 U.S. Senate candidate. Speaking with Christian Broadcasting Network war correspondent Chuck Holton at the southern border on Tuesday, she said, “America is in multi-system organ failure.”

O’Donnell explained that, “In medicine, we have what’s called multi-system organ failure.” If one system is in failure, she noted, the patient faces a 25% chance of dying. If two systems are in failure, the odds increase to 50%. If three systems are in failure, the likelihood of death rises to 99%. And the physician has only a brief period of time to turn things around.

At the moment, polls show that the most glaring “system failure” America faces is the fiasco at the U.S. border, an issue that the majority of voters rank as their number one concern in the 2024 election. 

Incredibly, Biden told reporters this week that he’s done all he can do to stop the crisis. But the reality is that he could end the crisis today with the stroke of a pen – the same way he created it by reversing the extremely effective Trump administration immigration policies on his first day in office. Indeed, not only has the Biden administration abdicated its duty to enforce existing U.S. immigration laws, they are suing the state of Texas for trying to protect its citizens. 

Another major failure is the collapse of the U.S. criminal justice system. The two-tier system of justice, which began during the Obama administration, has exploded on Biden’s watch. Democrats have abused the law to set a legal trap for Trump in the belief that if he is convicted of a crime during the 2024 election season, he will lose. But this strategy appears to be backfiring. 

Many voters seem to be catching on to the illegitimacy of the charges. In fact, less may have been more. One set of indictments against Trump may have had more impact than the four they brought. At a certain point, the law of diminishing returns kicked in, and the new indictments not only failed to move the needle but became a neon sign trumpeting the message that Democrats will do whatever it takes to eliminate this man, even if it means weaponizing the law against him.

The daily images of a former and possible future U.S. president defending himself in a courtroom on trumped-up charges run contrary to most people’s sense of fairness. It may be that the Democrats’ contrived and relentless persecution of the former president is fueling his rise in popularity. Indeed, most Republicans and a growing number of independents see the indictments for what they are: a desperate attempt to destroy a political opponent by a party that has collectively lost all sense of decency.

A third system failure is the Biden administration’s botched handling of the crisis in the Middle East. Desperate to resurrect the 2015 Iranian Nuclear Deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), his administration has turned a blind eye to the Trump-era sanctions (which had crippled Iran’s economy), tried to release frozen funds to the terrorist regime, and failed to respond to attacks on Americans from Iranian proxies. 

After allowing more than 160 missile strikes by Iranian proxy groups on U.S. military targets in the Middle East to go unanswered since Oct. 17, it was only a matter of time before American troops were killed or seriously wounded. Our luck ran out last Sunday, when a drone attack on a U.S. outpost in northeastern Jordan left three service members dead and dozens more wounded. Biden told reporters on Tuesday that he had decided upon a response to the attack. We won’t hold our breaths. 

We could name additional system failures, such as the 20% rise in consumer prices that is now baked into the economy despite the slowing rate of inflation, and the doubling of mortgage interest rates, but the patient — the U.S. — is already close to death. And as Dr. O’Donnell warned, the physician has only a brief window to turn things around.

    Wow! That’s a gloomy prognosis!

    I wonder… can all of these systems failures be fixed by the simple expedient of electing Republicans, can it? Republicans that can agree on little and that, in times past when they were ascendant, they did little to fix the underlying problems, is that what we’re left with?

    Just elect the Republicans and all of these systemic failures will be remedied by some deux ex machina that will somehow just help us solve these problems?

    I get that Republican control will likely be far better than the Dems’ control of government but I just don’t see how the very real problems we have in this country around governance is going to be fixed because few people seem to have a glimmer of an idea on how the governance problem can be solved.

      It’s not that (most) Republicans are “better,” but they suck less. In no way did I vote “for” John McCain in 2008. But Obama in the Oval Office was way too disastrous an option.
