Four months away from November’s midterm elections, President Biden is sinking into the depths of unpopularity. Only about 39% of Americans approve of the work he does.
Some Democrats seem to think abortion policy will save them, as suburban women revolt against overturning Supreme Court ruling Roe vs. Wade. They are renewing their campaign to pack the High Court with two or possibly four other Sonia Sotomayors. A member of President Biden’s commission on court reform, former federal judge Nancy Gertner, says she is “deeply frustrated” with Mr Biden for not meeting the moment.
