And so I think he stands to take a big hit in the polls — in the overall turnout numbers. The second thing we have to keep in mind is this. And this, I think, explains why, whoever the president, whoever the Congress is, people keep coming, even if the president says don’t come.
And that is, America remains a lighthouse. People want to come here because they see it as an opportunity. And in The Washington Post today, on the story about what’s happening at the border, there was this key quote from this man from Haiti, who said: “‘I have many dreams and don’t give up easily,’ he said. , holding a ticket that, by his estimation, puts his family on the 2,000th spot to be processed by the Border Patrol.”
This is a man for whom America is a destination because he wants a better life. And, you clearly know, as an American, I’m glad people see this as a place where they can live out their dreams. Unfortunately, we don’t have a government that can sustain this or a government that has the political will to fix the problems that make it possible for people to come legally and safely.

I’d like to take a look at that overall job approval number. When you see them now—David, I’m going to turn to you on this one—here he is; 44 percent overall approval of President Biden – the way he’s doing his job; 50 percent reject.
What’s feeding those numbers?
