The primaries have started, and the TV news media has been out surveying the polling sites. A few days ago, a reporter asked an older gentleman about the economy. He answered by saying he is really glad that Trump isn’t the president. That’s not an answer. Another day, another reporter asked an elderly woman about the economy. She answered by saying things are the same as they have been, nothing has changed. Where have you been lady?

For the last 18 months, I’ve been asking for a Democrat to let us know why they still support Biden. I finally figured out why nobody has come forward. They are all in nursing homes. Their insurance, relatives, or their own savings are paying for their stay there. They pay for nothing. They receive three meals a day, don’t drive, never go shopping, and have no ideas what anything costs. On TV, there are only reruns of old shows like Gunsmoke, Bonanza and Matlock. They never see the news or read the paper. Along with the Democratic politicians, and people in nursing homes they make up the 28 percent of Biden’s supporters.
