SYNOPSIS: Multiple polls indicate majority disapproval by Americans of Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic - “…the number one issue for voters.” The Trump campaign’s response is to claim that Biden could not have done any better.

That claim was resoundingly countered when Biden recently said that what was needed was better testing, more contact tracing, and use of the Defense Production Act to ramp up US production of tests and personal protective equipment for health care workers.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has stated that it’s time for political games to cease, that we’ve got to do better, and that it’s time for a national “reset” in fighting the virus.

“…The question of what anyone else might have done is a useless parlor game. Its only purpose, as conceived by a desperate Trump campaign, is to get people to ignore the president’s costly failure.”
