You clearly read to much msnbc type media.The Covid 19 pandemic has illustrated conclusively the truth of the old political saying "never let a good crisis go to waste". Electorates around the world have clearly demonstrated that the will give politicians who show the right intent in addressing the pandemic a lot of attitude and support. New York is a classic example where Governor Cuomo clearly made some mistakes early in the crisis but consistently showed empathy, trust in science, and communicated clearly. His approval rating went from the 40s to the 70s.
Andrews I think will be judged harshly for what has been a lack of accountability in dealing with what was clearly gross incompetence from his Government. I would say he is now only 50/50 to lead Labour to the next state election whereas 8 weeks ago he was cruising and riding high.
No politician has failed so completely not only to manage the pandemic response but to identify the political opportunity it offered than Trump. He could have guaranteed a second term by taking the pandemic seriously, taking a measured science-based approach, and setting the right example for his followers. Now he is down over 8% in the polls and is almost guaranteed to lose.
Cuomo Biggest blunder was when he forced the nursing homes to accept covid positive patients. It when ripped though at a rate of knots afterwards, it’s why they have a high death toll.
The sad thing about America is Trump is a shoe in for the next election. The damage is already done, Biden was never a viable candidate, the fact that he’s running with Harris(leaked)as his running mate, pretty much sums the position of the Dems.
One wrote the prison bill, the other enforced it, yay to BLM..
They need fundamental change which neither party is capable of.
