34. This is our war and those who oppose it, know that.
Sat Dec 2, 2023, 06:37 PM
Dec 2023

We are supplying the bombs and artillery. Our tax dollars
are funding it.

What you are not considering is the many outside forces
that will feed the animosity in the party through social media
that was not present in 1968. Schisms become fractures and
fractures becomes canyons when massaged by those whose
interests are in causing distention within the party.

This is a very dangerous time for Biden and the administration
knows it. (Hence the change in messaging if not in actions) Netanyahu
would just as soon destroy Biden's credibility with his base in hopes
that the Republicans win. Young and many not-so-young Democrats
already were showing dissatisfaction with the President, feeling
he is out of touch with their lives and interests. When over 60%
of the party are against this war, it builds on that narrative that
he is out of touch.

"Conversely, more than six in 10 Democrats (63%), adults younger than 35 (67%), and people of color (64%) disapprove, as do the slight majority of women (52%)."

HIs overall approval has dropped to 37%. Johnson's was at 36% when
he dropped out of the race. Yes there are intimations of 1968 if this
war continues.
