If Biden Runs Again, Trump Wins

Polling average comparisons from 538, annotations mine.
Quinnipiac poll from April 13, 2022. Red boxes mine, highlight interesting findings. Only 21% of respondents under age 35 approve. 65+ voters approve at 48%. If you’re 65+, Black, and have a college degree you are Biden’s core support group. 65+ white women with degrees are about the next best. This is not a winning coalition when the majority of Americans don’t have a college degree.
  1. Failure of the wealthy elite to recognize the intrinsic danger posed by the gap between the haves and have-nots leads to people who fear for their future seeking an explanation for their angst.
  2. Entrepreneurs emerge, willing to prey on the bigotries we all hold no matter how carefully we work to keep them in check, profiting by ginning up fear of the other.
  3. Everyone decides their way is right and must be fought for to the last. Conflicts escalates until resources are depleted and the system resets.
