SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – OVERNIGHT: 

THE REMARKABLE RACIAL CHANGE – OVERNIGHT, FROM DAILYWIRE:    Joe Biden’s approval rating among African-Americans has dropped significantly during his presidency, as his approval overall continues to slide.  A focus group of African Americans in the states of Michigan, Texas, and Georgia, conducted by Democratic surveyor Navigator Research, found that Biden’s approval among black people fell 10 percentage points over the course of the year 2021, from 86% in January 2021, shortly after Biden took office, to 76% in 2022. Even more surprising, Biden’s approval among black voters under 35 declined by a full 25% over the past year, from 88% in 2021 to just 63% in 2022.  Biden’s base of support was very tepid, the focus group found, with neither enthusiastic support nor intense disapproval. Asked to grade Biden’s “progress report” so far, voters gave him mostly “C” grades, with a few “Ds,” and even fewer “Bs.”  It's possible that a new generation of African Americans will realize that the Democratic Party does little for them, but only values their vote.  This comes as Republicans are finally waking up and reaching out to minorities, with some amazingly positive results.  Never consider any group lost. Or won.  The Dems have taken blacks for granted, as they have Hispanics.  And new polling suggests that both groups are fed up.
