Another recent poll from Emerson College indicates that Trump has a three-point lead over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical rematch in 2024. Trump also tops any other Republican in the primaries, including Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, polling 55 percent to DeSantis’s 29 percent.

 President Biden should be less concerned about this early poll than the seemingly daily finding of classified documents he mishandled, the debt ceiling, the war in Ukraine, or the number of mass shootings and the proliferation of gun violence.

 Of course, Biden is hardly alone on the discovery of classified documents. Trump is under investigation for his cache of documents at his home in Mar-a-Lago and now it’s reported that Mike Pence, Trump’s vice president, was in possession of similar documents. Who’s next? Barack Obama, Kamala Harris?

 If we can return to the recent Emerson poll for a moment, the people surveyed said the economy was the top issue for them, followed by healthcare, immigration, threats to democracy and crime. Obviously, we need to take a close look at who these people are and whether they are Democrats or Republicans.

 How and why Biden didn’t take steps to conduct his own search of documents, leaving it to his trusted staff and then delaying going public with the findings, is simply baffling. Even so, these discoveries appear to be no more than one party accusing the other of being less than mindful about handling classified materials.

 Now we hear that Biden and the First Lady failed to salute a Marine upon arrival at the White House from a Marine One helicopter a few days ago. A video of the incident was used in an “ABC World News Tonight” segment and posted in full on YouTube. It clearly shows they did not salute the Marine. 

There is no rule or regulation that requires them to do so, but this is fodder for the opposition, who, over the next several months, will use every gaffe, mistake and decision to undermine Biden’s return to office.

All we can say is “Beware, Biden.”

 Biden’s activities and statements, whether not remembering the name of the person being honored in a birthday song or a misleading report about a failure to salute, will be pounced on by his adversaries. All we can say is “Beware, Biden.”

  1. I’m making 80 US dollars for every hr. to finish some internet providers from home. I absolutely never thought it would try and be reachable anyway. My comrade mate got $13k just in about a month effectively doing this best task and furthermore she persuaded me to profit. Look at additional subtleties going to this
