Americans Want To Watch Prices Go Down, Not Biden On CNN

President Joe Biden joined Anderson Cooper on CNN for another one of those gimmicky town halls on Thursday night, and it turns out only a few people watched.
The Biden town hall reportedly drew only 1.2 million viewers, with a meager 271,000 in the key 25 to 54-year-old advertisement demographic — so I guess it was more than a few, but not many more. For comparison, an average 2.83 million people watched Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity on Fox News during the same time slot, more than double the president’s audience. MSNBC’s 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. shows drew an average of 1.39 million.

A clean wind in Europe’s dirty corners

 When a survey last month asked people in Europe if corruption had increased over the previous year, four countries ranked among the worst: Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland. Yet all four now have something else in common. In October, they each saw political stirrings for clean governance or rule of law.
The most dramatic shift was in Hungary, where democracy has been eroded by a populist prime minister, Viktor Orbán. Six opposition parties have united against him and on Oct. 17 chose a small-town mayor, Péter Márki-Zay, to run in the next election.

What Democrats are still fighting over in the budget bill

Democrats are pretty optimistic about their budget reconciliation bill, but they’re not quite at an agreement.
“I do think I’ll get a deal,” President Joe Biden said Thursday. “We’re down to four or five issues. … I think we can get there.”
Whether Biden is correct remains to be seen. So far, Democrats aren’t sure what will and won’t be in the bill, or how much it will cost. But, for the first time in weeks, they appear to be making some real progress.

Democrats must embrace the power they have to save democracy — or risk losing both

There is no point in having political power if you don’t use it. This is one of the first lessons of realpolitik.
Donald Trump is a political gangster who has learned this lesson well.
Under his command, the Republican Party is a de facto political crime family. They too understand power and how to use it.
Some time ago, Democrats understood this lesson as well. Now they appear to have unlearned it, at least as it applies to resisting the rise of the Republicans’ neofascist movement.

A data scientist points to ominous ‘warning signs’ for Democrats in the Virginia governor race

Democrats may control both chambers of Congress, but there are multiple reasons why the party should be concerned about the upcoming statewide election in the state of Virginia.
In a piece published by The Washington Post, data scientist Lenny Bronner notes that the Virginia governor’s race may be much closer than Democrats would like considering President Joe Biden won the state by more than 10 points less than one year ago.
Bronner pointed out that available early voting data suggests Democrats aren’t turning out as enthusiastically for the race as they did in 2020.

Lauren Appell: McAuliffe looks desperate in Virginia, pushes the panic button in tight race

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
With all eyes on Virginia’s gubernatorial race, Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe, once thought to be a sure thing in the bright blue commonwealth – which voted for President Biden by 54% – is pushing the panic button in the final weeks of his campaign. 
A lot can change in a year, and you can almost smell the fear and desperation in the air. After all, Virginia is supposed to be the magic eight ball for the 2022 midterm elections, and it’s not looking very magical right now for the Democrats.

Biden’s Support Among Independents Has Crashed

We are living through the era of unpopular presidents.
Just nine months into his term, President Joe Biden has already achieved something only predecessor Donald Trump managed before him: an average approval rating south of 45 percent in the third quarter of his first year.
According to an Oct. 1-19 Gallup poll of 832 American adults released today, Biden was at 42 percent overall, down from 57 percent in January. Trump at this juncture was at 37 percent, on his way to becoming the least popular president in the modern polling era, never cracking 50 percent in the Gallup survey even once.
