When I see an article from Politico I usually avoid it like the plague. But when the title is “The General Election Scenario That Democrats are Dreading” How can I resist? It seems that the rebound of the economy will come along just in time to make the November election a bad time to be Joe Biden.
The upshot is that a V-shaped recovery will relieve the anxiety people have suffered under the COVID-19 crisis at exactly the right time to convince Americans that President Trump knows how to handle the economy best.
“On Election Day, we Democrats need voters to ask themselves, ‘Are you better off than you were four years ago?’ Republicans need voters to ask themselves, ‘Are you better off than you were four months ago?’”
And knowing how humble the President is I hope he remembers to remind Americans that he was the one pushing to re-open the economy while the Democrats wanted it to remain shutdown for up to a year.
