Why Glenn Youngkin won: “How school closures made me question my progressive politics; I’ve never felt more alienated from the liberal Democratic circles I usually call home.” — at Politico.
What Jim Crow?: “Dating back to 1996, black voter turnout has increased in five out of six presidential elections,” Senator Pat Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, writes in The Philadelphia Inquirer. “Ironically, the biggest gaps in turnout between black and white voters are in primarily Democratic-controlled states with supposedly liberal election laws, like Massachusetts, Oregon and Colorado.”
The Left is never satisified: “I think I’ve hit on Pres. Joe Biden’s fundamental problem: he was never a mayor. When you’ve been a mayor of a liberal city you learn one thing right out of the gate: the left is never, ever satisfied. The left lives to be disgruntled. They cannot govern because being outside shouting at the powers that be is in their DNA. They would much rather “speak truth to power” than to have it themselves.” — Dave Cieslewicz
The Gallup poll records “a dramatic shift over the course of 2021, from a 9-percentage-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter to a rare 5-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter.” It’s the largest swing since Gallup started asking the question in 1991.

The incredible shrinking
New poll numbers from Gallup puts Biden’s approval at just 40% with 56% disapproving — the lowest yet.
“President Biden’s Georgia speech is a break point. He thought he was merely appealing to his base. He might have united the rest of the country against him. … The over-the-top language of the speech made him seem more emotional, less competent. … They have no idea how they sound to the non-left, so they have no idea when they are damaging themselves.
“But this week in Georgia Mr. Biden damaged himself. And strengthened, and may even have taken a step in unifying, the non-Democrats who are among their countrymen, and who are in fact the majority of them.” — Peggy Noonan.
“I think millions of Americans have become very demoralized — they’re asking, what do the Democrats stand for? Clearly, the current strategy is failing and we need a major course correction.” — Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“It seems like the Democrats can’t get out of their own way.” — U.S. Rep Tim Ryan, D-Ohio.
Others say that as President, Mr. Biden has fallen out of step with many voters by focusing on issues like climate change and voting rights. — New York Times.
