Five months into his presidency, Joe Biden’s poll numbers show slippage among independents. David Brady and Douglas Rivers, Hoover Institution senior fellows and Stanford University political scientists, assess Biden’s popularity, where Republicans and Democrats depart on COVID vaccines and immigration, plus whether a 2022 midterm election still 500 days away could or won’t resemble 2010’s referendum on the Obama presidency.

    This is another of those strange discussions of American politics which do not a reference the progressive bias of the media and especially social media.

    Professor Tim Groseclose calculated, some years ago, that if the media were closer to even-handed, the United States would look like Utah, with Republicans getting 60+% of the vote.  

    It seems undeniable that, if only the media had merely been as biased as normal for them, and had not actively blocked the Hunter Biden laptop story, Donald Trump would have been reelected by the Electoral College.
