At Last! The Caddyshack Election We’ve Always Wanted

I believe I have mentioned once before that one simple theory of how to predict an election outcome is which campaign is having more fun. Biden’s campaign is clearly not having a good time right now, and won’t get any better between now and November regardless of whether he stays or goes. Losing campaigns—think George H.W. Bush in 1992—have a definite air of failure, and nothing ever works to turn it around.

Trump, meanwhile, is having a whale of a time, yesterday challenging President Biden to a charity golf match, with Trump offering to spot Slow Joe 20 strokes. Pretty sure the match will look something like this (except make Ted Knight—the perfect casting for Biden—senile):

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi today is expressing fresh doubts about Biden’s candidacy, blunting the momentum yesterday to rally behind Biden. Her caveat is that everyone should wait while Biden hosts the NATO summit this week in Washington, not to mention his “big boy” press conference on Thursday. My hunch is that Democrats who know Biden is a sure loser are quietly hoping for another Biden embarrassment at this summit that will force his removal.

Meanwhile, the polling outlook continues to worsen for Biden and Democrats. Here’s Harry Entin yesterday:


There’s even Dem panic in . . . New York! From Politico:

President Joe Biden has a new problem: a competitive race in deep blue New York.

Elected officials, union leaders and political consultants are panicking over polls showing a steady erosion of Biden’s support in a state he won by 23 points four years ago. They’re so worried they’ve been trying to convince the Biden team to pour resources into New York to shore up his campaign and boost Democrats running in a half-dozen swing districts that could determine control of the House. . .

“We’re still acting like this is a one-party state, which for pretty much 20, 25 years it has been,” Democratic Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine said. “I truly believe we’re a battleground state now.”

Pass the popcorn, with lots of butter please.
