Inside the Ring Road: Voters Not Enthusiastic About ‘Retread’ Candidates

0

The faces may be familiar, but they don’t seem to be in favor as Election Day dawns.

“In 2024, voters don’t want to retread presidential candidates,” Rasmussen told Reports, who asked voters if those who have previously run for the White House should try again.

The nation seems to have little patience for reruns. A past prospect was particularly interesting.

“Media rumors suggest hillary clinton may be planning a comeback, but voters don’t want her to run for the White House again in 2024. However, voters also don’t like other failed candidates who have already sought the presidency,” a said Rasmussen in his analysis of the results – which also measured the popularity of a race by former candidates such as Sens. Mitt RomneyUtah Republican and Bernie SandersVermont socialist.

But back to Mrs. Clinton.

The Rasmussen Reports poll found that 69% of likely US voters think Clinton should no longer run for president. Just 20% think the former secretary of state, US senator and first lady should give it another whirl.

The survey of 1,000 likely US voters was conducted July 12-13 and released Thursday.

THE EARLY-EARLY

Voting in midterm elections begins fairly early in most states. At least this trend gives the press a chance to feature the whimsical, horse-racing style coverage that is so beloved by journalists and political analysts.

They won’t have long to wait.

“During this election cycle, 45 states and Washington, DC will conduct in-person early voting without an excuse for the November election. In states that allow early voting without excuse, a voter does not have to provide an excuse for not being able to vote on Election Day. A total of nine states will begin early voting in September. Another 33 states and Washington, DC, will begin early voting in October. Three states begin early voting in November,” Ballotpedia.com said, in a new report released Thursday.

“The first start date for early voting is September 19, in Pennsylvania, where early voting begins when mail-in/mail-in ballots become available. Three other states – Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyoming – begin their early voting periods on September 23,” the research organization group said.

“Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyoming will have the longest early voting periods, opening September 23 and closing November 7 – a total of 46 days.

A NIXON MOMENT

He is described as “one of America’s finest diplomats, strategic thinkers, and accomplished foreign policy leader.”

It would be Robert C. O’Brienwho has just been elected chairman of the board of directors of the Richard Nixon Foundation. He previously held important positions in the George W. Bush and barack obama administrations, and served as National Security Advisor to the former President donald trump from 2019 to 2020.

“I am extremely grateful to the Board of Directors for entrusting me with this particular responsibility. Throughout his time in public life and in the decades that followed, President Nixon used strategic diplomacy to advance the cause of peace and ensure America’s security. Now, fifty years after his travels to China and Russia – and as we approach the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War – his foreign policy represents the ultimate example of the kind of strategic thinking that should once again guide America Today,” Mr. O’Brien said in a statement shared with Inside the Beltway.

He will also play a leading role in the development of the Richard Nixon Foundation’s inaugural Grand Strategy Summit in the nation’s capital in November. Find the organization on NixonFoundation.org.

A TEACHING MOMENT

The New York Post points out that “two big-city Democratic mayors” are suddenly very concerned about President Bidenthe policy of open borders.

The Mayor of New York Eric Adams and the mayor of Washington Muriel Bowser now has to take care of the basic needs of many incoming and highly stressed migrants.

“But if these two East Coast mayors think they’re in trouble, imagine what the border towns of Texas and Arizona are facing. Eagle Pass, Texas, mayor Rolando Salinas Jr. (another Democrat) says police and firefighters are stretched beyond their limits in his city of 30,000, which has seen 1,000 migrants a day captured, processed and largely released,” the Post said.

“That’s all Biden does. He hung a giant ‘come in’ sign during his campaign and, in power, he intentionally abandoned all of his predecessor’s measures to keep migrants out; the growing flood now has more than 4 million people under its watch. If Adams and Bowser want relief, they better join the chorus of border mayors in demanding that the president finally stop letting everyone in,” the Post advised.
