Trump supporters including you are making the same strategic mistake again. Biden only needs to have COVID behind us (which I think will happen largely by mid-year) and toot his own horn on his accomplishments and the legislative successes, and he and Democrats are looking pretty good. Certainly not the dementia-impaired cartoon character you imagine.
I've never been enamored of Trump. I despise Trump. I think he's despicable.
What I don't get about you, Curt, is your school girl crush on Joe Biden. Inflation is at 7%. Gas prices are still about $1 higher than they were a year ago. Grocery store shelves are still empty down several aisles. My mom's still dead from Covid, which the Flatulent Fool promised to lock down. The US still has people stranded in Afghanistan, though I'm sure the HUFFPO rarely reports it. Boris is still on the border of Ukraine. Teachers unions are still running schools to the intense chagrin of suburban moms. Joe's describing everyone who has qualms about the Dems' new voting rights bill as being in league with Bull Connor.
Will some of those issues be ameliorated, even resolved in time. But, people don't forget.
I despise Trump. I think he's despicable. But, Joe?
The question of who's worse for his party is very much an open question.
What bodes well for the GOPs is that they're honest about their mess. There are GOPs who will say out loud that their Emperor ain't wearin a stitch of clothing.
Dems are still, just like you, Pollyanna-ish about Joe.
In my mind, that makes Joe a bigger threat to the Dems than OrangeMan is to the GOPs.
There is a very real possibility that Trump-backed candidates will win the GOP nominations but will be too extreme for the general election voters.
I don't see that as a problem in the House election. In a few purple districts, perhaps, but not many.
Where it's a legitimate issue is in purple states with 022 Senate seats open...like my Pennsylvania. A bonkers MAGA GOP candidate could easily lose those seats in 022.

Interesting take on the Trump rally.
However, it's misfocused on the SwampMedia: The WaPo, The NYT, etc.
The real story on the rally is the Fox and NYP coverage.

DeSantis will NOT bend the knee to Trump: Florida Gov. says backing ex-president for 2024 now 'is too much to ask' after Trump attacked him for being 'dull' and having 'no charisma'
