One thing Biden learned from Trump was publicizing his actions early and openly. Trump was shameless, of course, because he publicized outright lies. One of the things Trump did was follow the Bannon theory of "flood the zone with shit." Well, Biden has always been good on TV so every single day he is out there explaining things with that calm, earnest voice and face. He's flooding the zone with facts and hope and good will. He's flipped the story on Trump's "Promises Made, Promises Kept." He's keeping promises and telling the truth. Where Trump was touting his Muslim ban and ramping up his hateful policies, Biden has been making order out of the chaos. He has an excellent team who also don't hide. His favorables have come up in the past week not just because of the terrible things we are still finding out about January 6, they've come up because he shows he is actually doing something.

Not everything is going to come up roses, but the American Public has become so used to an out there president, the RW would probably use him quietly working in the WH against him as "hiding," as they did when he didn't actively campaign with rallies. Well, he's not hiding now but I think the Republicans wish he would.
