President Biden WON the 2024 Presidential Election LAST NIGHT..! (with CNN flashpoll)

Hyperbole? Well, perhaps just a touch... but the way he owned the Republicans last night, and the way he touted the accomplishments of his administration, give me total confidence that he is our candidate, and he will be victorious over whatever 'person' the GQP decides to put forward!

Results of a CNN "flash-poll" after the speech were very positive.

Given the degree of 'polarization' of the country, I don't think we could have hoped for any better. The President's poll numbers increased most dramatically on various issues among independents-- and among those who had been most skeptical of President Biden, per CNN flash-poll results below.

It seems to me that one of the biggest problems has been, that most people are unaware of the legislative and economic accomplishments of the Biden administration... We need to do a better job of 'blowing our own horn'! We have the lowest unemployment numbers in 50 years! That is a major accomplishment that should be trumpeted by every Democratic candidate from the president all the way down to township trustees! The Republicans are never shy about bragging-- (and much of the time they are lying about their results, particularly during the former administration)--- but we have the numbers to prove it! This is DEMOCRATIC PROSPERITY!!!

The alternative, aptly illustrated by "our Republican friends" last night, is chaos, and lack of support for things that most Americans consider to be good and simple common sense...

Ok, on to the poll results:

::snip::

The biggest movement came among those who were skeptical of Biden to begin with. Among those who said in the pre-speech survey that they disapproved of the way Biden is handling his presidency, just 7% said before the speech that they thought Bidenís proposed policies would move the country in the right direction, rising to 45% post-speech. And among political independents, the share saying Bidenís policies would move the country in the right direction rose from 40% pre-speech to 66% afterwards.

Overall, 66% who watched the address said that Bidenís policies would move the country in the right direction on the economy Ė thatís in comparison to 62% of speech-watchers who said the same about his economic policies following his speech last year, and 72% following Bidenís first presidential address to Congress in 2021. The share of viewers this year who felt Bidenís economic policies would mark a shift in the right direction rose 16 percentage points following his speech. That shift was also heavily concentrated among independents, who went from 38% saying his economic proposals would move things in the right direction pre-speech to 64% post-speech.

A two-thirds majority also said that Bidenís policies would move the country in the right direction on foreign affairs (67%) with somewhat more modest majorities saying the same of his policies on gun laws (63%), government spending (59%) and immigration (55%). The share of viewers who said Bidenís immigration policies would move the country in the right direction rose 14 points post-speech.

I recall a theme from history, perhaps more than once, that "you don't switch horses in the middle of the stream"
(most notably from the Roosevelt re-election campaign of 1944).

If that is true, you most certainly do not attempt to switch horses in the middle of the stream,
when you are already riding the WINNING horse!!!

The vast majority of the American people are with us and Joe on the issues!

While many of the younger folks who support our party may wish for "a new flavor"--
(and when I was young, I often wished for "new flavors" also)--
there is NO potential candidate who could adequately replace
President "Fighting Joe" BIDEN at this moment in history!

I don't want to entertain any more "what-ifs" about 2024.
President Biden has said from the very beginning,
that he WOULD RUN for re-election, as long as he was able to do so.

Last night, off-script and under attack by extremists, he proved that he was VERY able!
He OWNED and HUMILIATED the far-right bastards, and forced them to physically "stand up" to protect Social Security and Medicare!
(two programs they have been plotting against for decades, almost 100 years ago Republicans opposed the creation of Social Security when they called it "SOCIALISM"...... ((yawn)) )


Yes, we will still have to "do the work"--
but President Joe Biden is the BEST candidate we could hope for, at this moment!

In 2020, he was also our best candidate, with experience and maturity and empathy!

But now, he is the candidate with RESULTS as well!


"FINISH THE JOB!"

BIDEN-HARRIS 2024!

2. At the moment, DeathSantis best fits that 'description'--- BUT

in his pursuit of the 'deplorable' GQP Republican base voters,
he is also destroying any hope of national support for his candidacy,
among independents and the vast majority who support common sense
and DEMOCRACY.


I was at one point "nervous" about such a 'Trumpist candidate who is not Trump',
but in many ways he is WORSE than Trump--- he is more committed to fascist ideals--

and when reporters ask questions, he runs away!


I think President Joe Biden is MORE than a match for either Trump or DeSantis,
and look forward to what promises to be a nasty contest between them
for the GQP presidential nomination!

In the meantime, President Biden will be the adult in the room,
and the majority of American voters want an adult in charge--

especially an adult who has proven that he will fight for them--
on-camera and unscripted!

3. We know they're REALLY going to try to diminish that

Iím betting that the Sunday Morning shows are rushing to line up critics.

The good news is they are on the defensive.

5. I really try to be an optimist,

although by nature I am not.


Perhaps on Sunday I will watch George instead of Todd.... that might be better for my mental health.

LOL

4. Any whining about not being "inspired" and "new blood," any hint that Democrats "don't fight"

and don't "take on," don't take the Republican threat seriously, "both sides" insinuations, conspiracy theories about the DNC and Establishment:

"Establishment" as an insult has been destroyed. I know it's too much to ask to stop the "Democrats are bad at messaging" thing, but that doesn't work so well anymore either.

Different things to whine about will be needed in the next two years. Would be nice if all the whining were directed at Republicans where it belongs, and that's more likely now, too.

THANK YOU BIDEN ADMINISTRATION ESTABLISHMENT!

8. Amen!

"some people say" that Biden's SOTU "might have been too long"--

but he had my complete attention for the whole thing,
I did find it very "entertaining" (supposedly an important thing nowadays)
and I was never tempted to change the channel!

Frankly, I was sorry when it concluded! I wanted MORE!



I am personally very proud that I supported Joe Biden for the 1988 presidential nomination....
I was right then, but perhaps there was a greater moment waiting for Joe...

11. Ironic that the howlers were the ones who made it go viral and media talk about it.

Without them a lot of people probably wouldn't have noticed the SOTU speech. Ha!

14. That is fine---

as long as we do not speak of Joe "stepping aside".... !




However, after last night, I have no memory of ANY 'sotu' speech, EVER!

It was his announcement of the re-election, campaign, make no mistake--

and a DAMN GOOD one!
