Should President Joe Biden run again?
How about former President Donald Trump?
How about neither?
A new survey showed Americans have essentially turned their backs on the established two-party system in American politics. The majority of the public does not want either man to run again.
When asked by the CNBC All-American Economic Survey, 61 percent of participants said they did not think Trump should run again, while 70 percent said they’ve seen enough of Biden. The results proved that The Trends Journal was prescient with its recent cover for the Midterm elections titled, “VOTE FOR THE LOSER YOU HATE THE LEAST.”
The results were somewhat jarring because Trump and Biden were unpopular even in their own parties. About 37 percent of Republicans said they think Trump should sit this one out, while 57 percent of Democrats would like to see a new party standard-bearer. About 86 percent of Republicans want Biden to retire after his first term.
Biden’s unpopularity is not surprising. Although he campaigned for Democrats before the Midterms, they were certainly not seeking him out. Trump has drawn negative media attention since acknowledging an interest in running again.
The poll found that Democrats are much more supportive of the U.S.’s backing of Ukraine than Republicans, while Republicans see border security and immigration as their top priority.
TREND FORECAST: The U.S. is ready for a populist, anti-establishment, anti-tax, anti-vax, anti-immigration political movement. Trump showed promise, but did not deliver.
Considering the political restraints for third parties to be on state ballots in the so-called American “democracy,” it would, however, have to initially be funded by the billionaire class of political investors to achieve national success… or by uniting the masses to donate what they can to break the political chains.
For example, instead of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg having spent a billion dollars for his ill-fated run for the White House in 2020 on the Democratic ticket, if a billion dollars was given to fund a new party, the chances of success would be far greater than the money wasted on his defeat.
Billionaires like George Soros and Ken Griffin are just two examples of the big money in control of the political system as evidenced by the hundreds of millions they and others have pumped into the pockets of politicians they support.
Of course, it would be a challenge for any political candidate to break into the big stage because the claws of the establishment are so deep. The media and Big Tech ignore any voice that has not been approved for consumption.
The New York Times reported that Facebook’s appointed oversight board found that the company gave celebrities and established politicians “special treatment compared to the vast majority of its users.”
However, with disgust among much of the general public so high, “It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men,” said Samuel Adams, one of America’s Founding Fathers.
And as we see it, that time is now.
