Let’s start with Biden’s primetime address last night where he went directly after Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans.
It’s clear that he sees a genuine threat to democracy. But did this help his standing with Democrats and even more important – Independents and some Republicans? Or was it just political theater?
What happens next as we inch closer to the midterms? What about populism’s role in both parties?
Next, we’ll talk about today’s jobs report which showed 317,000 new jobs. It’s impressive but shows growth slowing. Is this a good sign for Biden and the Democrats?
Finally – what are the chances of an October surprise or contested midterm races?
Next week we’ll feature some of the results of our new polling of moderates and independents, and the supply chain.
