that’s certainly my impression, too
not sure at all
very difficult indeed to judge, when you don’t live there
the media is filtered, even there - and in Europe even more so, i think, regarding US political and social issues
quite a few people i know in the US say they’ll vote for Trump, if they can, as a probable “lesser of two evils”
one could be forgiven for getting the impression that neither major US party ever fields its best or strongest candidate! it feels kind of hard, to me, to understand why they have to have a choice between Biden and Trump, but what do i know about it?!
i hope Trump isn’t going to jail, anyway - i find it hard to see how that would really help anyone? but it’s easy to see some of the risks of that, and the anger it might provoke in some quarters??
edited to add: you can’t tell what the sentiment is for those living in the US from US opinion polls, either, partly because they’re all paid for by someone with an agenda, and partly because they’re also selectively reported and publicised according to other agendas!
