    President Biden thread

    I read several articles that the first six months Biden gained a lot of ground with Independents. https://www.newsweek.com/joe-biden-approval-rating-soaring-independents-1610378 https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/meet-the-press/biden-buoyed-independents-100-days-n1265336 But also as that support slips or might slip it could be important. https://www.rollcall.com/2021/07/14/election-day-2022-will-be-independents-day/ I think this is true. Republicans that were so turned off by Trump that they voted for Biden certainly aren't going to vote Democrat in the mid-term and Independents who can swing either way might be a crucial element to both parties. I don't think they will be swayed by the sky is falling tactic that America is being destroyed because Biden and extremist hate America, etc. They don't like partisan politics, they are younger (I.e. likely to have some student debt) and are more issue oriented and lean towards LGBT rights and abortions, but also support liberties such as gun ownership. I was democrat-leaning registered Independent most of my adult life until I decided I wanted to vote in primaries a couple of elections ago and Florida locks out registered Independents from primaries.

    No the article mentions republicans and breaks it down. I mentioned republicans in my post as well, so I'm not understanding this. I don't think antivaxers had a major impact in his falling numbers since more than likely they didn't approve of him from the get go. In my opinion.

    That would mean that anti-vaxxers gave a positive approval rating prior to now and now disapprove. Doubtful as my opinion would be covid anti-vaxxers voted for Trump and disapproved of Biden from the get go. Trump is not relevant but it is not unusual for approval ratings to drop. Republicans have always and will always disapprove so there's 50% disapproval right there. The far left wing is probably dropping some of their initial approval due to his lack of aggression with their agenda, and are middle of the road people with continued poor vaccination rates and the border issue don't necessarily approve. Then there's inflation. People are worried about this and blaming him. Fox News and conservative media are certainly making a big deal out of it since jobs and the economy are going well they have to have something. But everyday people are worried about this as well.

    I'm working this weekend and really don't have time to look into your "corrupt enough" issues that have no links that I can quickly read, although I'm good with Google and may nor may not check into it. But wanted to acknowledge I read your post. Again, I might point out that is a Democrat that represents and comes from Trump country (and coal country for that matter) and acts accordingly even though he's a Democrat. He's not like AOC or even Pelosi, and they need him, not to destroy him. The Republican strategy of punishing Cheney was widely criticized by liberals, so doing the same to him would be lame. But Republicans don't need Cheney, and at the end of the day she's very much against Biden and votes party line anyway. Have a good day.

    Conspiracy theory or do you have evidence, or you just presume long-term congress people have to be corrupt?

    You're entitled to your opinions but really as someone on the sidelines I really don't like this bullying. You insult yourselves with posts full of arrogance, superiority and insults and babbling. I hardly read them anymore.

    I quoted it, so I don't necessarily need to go back and see that you were talking about a specific person. But thanks for the clarification.

    We have to live with the worst of our party that the other side doesn't like. My father is conservative and voted for Trump. As a younger man he was a Democrat but switched. He's a veteran and is no way no how is against Democracy because he fought for it. He's pro-gay marriage (which is great having a gay son and all), he's not a racist and he's vaccinated. I for the life of me can't understand his voting for Trump but I do not part of it is that he's from Texas and is very much against illegal immigration. We don't talk about politics much. All three of his kids are die-hard liberals. Don't feel bad, I'm part of a group that hates America, is a communist, wants to come for your guns, wants an open border where anyone can walk in and get free stuff, wants to destroy the economy, will let covid destroy our civil liberties, wants everything for free without working for it, and wants men in dresses in bathrooms to rape your daughters. As Beerman said another "Democrat idiot". It's my lot in life to be viewed this way. https://democracy.psu.edu/poll-report-archive/americans-not-only-divided-but-baffled-by-what-motivates-their-opponents/

    Maybe Biden can take to Twitter and make some sexist remark about her to belittle her, or make a slur about her being a bisexual. Democrats are putting on the heat on her. She might not tow the line on every issue but she's been an advocate for women's right and the LGBT community. She's not a traitor to be vilified. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/progressives-crank-filibuster-pressure-sinema-million-dollar-ad-buy-arizona-n1271498 One really can't expect someone who represent states that went for Trump to be as progressive as we want them to be. They know who they're representing. Maybe because I'm a centrist, I don't expect people to vote along progressive left ideas all the time. I rather like someone putting the brakes on them.

    Democrats from Biden on down to congress have repeatedly called out Republicans and their shenanigans. I don't think they are being "polite" about it, but as I've said it's nice that they are being professional, with honesty and integrity on their side as they sling the mud. But you don't get Republicans to vote against Republicans or go away or change by letting "them know we know that they are full of *** and are *** people. " That only emboldens them to act more foolish. Lay people are far more vocal as well. https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2021/07/17/third-california-venue-cancels-plans-to-host-marjorie-taylor-greene-and-matt-gaetz/?sh=72d023b06ca2

    HELP: Deciding between MSN, ADN, or BSN

    Depends on what your goals are if you want to get the MSN. If it were me I would do one of those accelerated programs for the BSN that is designed for people with an existing Bachelor's degree. There's a gazillion debates over ADN vs. BSN but go for the BSN as it's preferred even though entry level nursing is the same with an ADN or BSN.

    I agree. I do hate to always bring up Trump, but a lot of what we're seeing even today in low vaccination rates and consequently a new surge from a new variant stems from his poor leadership in politicizing a medical issue.

    His leadership has been pro-business and anti-lockdown which is why even during the Summer surge of 2020 we stayed open and why he is saying today "Don't Fauci My State". We locked down for two months and opened up earlier than most states and stayed open. However, the rise in covid cases is because of the unvaccinated and it's not like DeSantis isn't making the vaccine available and isn't promoting it. However, I can agree his overall leadership in all of this has been poor from the start. His statement about leading the nation in infections was that no restrictions or mask mandates will happen, and that the old and vulnerable are protected and this is largely true. Boomers and elders and the ill are vaccinated at very high rates. The mindset of not getting vaccinated I don't think is a choice people make because of him, but it does seem to be more of a Republican, conservative Christian, or somewhat crazy choice people make, particularly all over the south not just here in Florida.

    I remember reading about "the politics of handsome" or something like that. That being handsome helps but isn't everything. I can't seem to find the article but it was a long time ago. Looks somehow have a psychological impact. But that's interesting about the colors. Didn't Palin wear a lot of red? The MAGA hat is red as well.

    Florida is 3rd in population in the country. DeSantis must have known bad news was coming in the numbers on Friday because says prior he published "Don't Fauci my state". Florida releases numbers only weekly now. However, at this point I don't blame DeSantis all that much. He perhaps should be doing more to promote the vaccine, but vaccines are widely available to anyone that wants one any time for free without waiting in multiple outlets and there is outreach door to door, and can be administered in people's homes. I blame the increase in covid cases here on the unvaccinated. Studies have shown that counties that voted for Trump here have lower vaccination rates and clearly as a state that went for Trump as a whole it's inevitable that cases here jump with our low vaccination rates.

    Like I have said before I don't think Republicans hearts are in the right place and want to make voting "more fair". One of the main targets and themes throughout the Republican lead states making changes is targeting voting by mail or other convenient ways of voting that were particularly used by Democrats. This is without evidence that this has been abused. The Florida governor tweeted and bragged at how smooth the election ran and how Florida was a model for the rest of the country. But yet still felt the need to changes things up in the vote by mail and drop box which were widely used by Democrats. Since he clearly bragged there was no fraud, what's his agenda then? It's clear to me where the agenda lies. https://apnews.com/article/health-government-and-politics-texas-voting-coronavirus-pandemic-9bc36a6e8c967757340ab25f49b8ddbf I think it's important to expose and call out Republicans for what they are doing in the name of "fairness" and continue to ask for the proof that the election was fraudulent. But at the end of the day Democrats won't find it all that hard to vote.
