Voters exhausted over possible Biden-Trump rematch



Here we go again. It is looking increasingly likely that the next matchup for President of the United States will be Joe Biden vs. Donald Trump. Trump has already announced his candidacy, and Biden is reportedly planning to make his official announcement this week. Never mind that Biden is 80 years old, and would be 86 at the end of a second term. That is a factor for potential voters, many of whom consider Biden too old to take on a second term. But polls also show that even if they don’t want Biden to run again, they will support him if he does. If Biden and Trump are the nominees again, it would mark the first time since 1892 that the incumbent and his defeated predecessor compete in the presidential election. That isn’t exactly the matchup most are hoping for, and in fact, we’re getting tired of having only Biden and Trump as our choices on the ballot. A new poll by Yahoo News and YouGuv asked people how they feel about a Biden-Trump rematch. The answer? Exhaustion. That was by far the top emotion cited by those polled. After that, the top answers are fear, and sadness. Not so inspiring to potential voters. It seems most voters would like to have another choice, even if that choice is “anyone else.”

    This is a sad commentary on the American voters. We have Biden who has been an absolute catastrophe and has lied from the beginning to the American public. He has no direction, no spine and is a disgrace.
    We have Trump who should have been charged last year except that the Democrats are so bad that they need him to stay free.
    We, the American people, have allowed this to happen.
    The problem in this country now is that you cannot have an honest conversation about any subject. There is a fix but it would be very painful to a lot of Americans.

    Trump supporters aren’t “exhausted” by the prospect of a rematch. That’s like saying nobody wanted to see the rematch at the end of ROCKY III. This AISI sounds like lefty projection to me.
