Trump's approval ratings are in the tank. He has earned that disapproval, and he alone is responsible for the situation. It is the first time Trump seems to be paying a serious price for his erratic presidency.
But with Biden choosing the right keywords, the race for the presidency is getting more interesting.
Biden has nursed presidential ambitions for 33 years, and thumping wins in nine of 14 states, including Texas, after being almost down and out just four days ago, should make him fancy his chances.
In societal and political terms, both the United States and India are in a state of unprecedented polarization. Yet, the style of governance style, instincts and fundamentals of both leaders are individually aligned and proximate.
What’s arguably more interesting is that Trump seems to think that part of his role as President is to give a running commentary on the state of the opposition.
If the Democratic campaign keeps to an ‘anyone but Trump’ approach, it will lose. He will eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If Democratic voters are again as divided as they were in 2016, Trump is guaranteed a second victory.
This is the Clinton trap – the trap of “some, not all”.
