How Is The 2024 Election Going For You So Far?



Opinion by:  
E. Eugene Webb PhD

As many of you have, I have been following the legal twists and turns of Donald Trump as he moves toward the RNC Convention and the general election.

Of special interest to me, has been the polling interviews all the major media outlets have been doing during the various primaries that ask the question of Trump supporters: will you support Donald Trump if there is a conviction in one of these lawsuits?

Some quickly say yes, some simply say maybe, and a few don't respond at all. When pressed on the issue and ask will you vote for Biden instead, the responses become even more muddled with no, or I just won't vote, and in some cases I think I'll vote for the third Party.

Following the media coverage of this political circus, it is looking more and more likely none of these cases will reach a conclusion prior to the election. So where does that leave everybody?

As I write this, it's hard to tell but an indication is the massive amount of national television network time that's being consumed to encourage the indictment, prosecution, trial, and verdict surrounding Trump.

While president Biden and his campaign try to fight off the image off “the aging elderly gentleman with a failing memory” problem and the Trump campaign tries to delay the trials, the general voting population continues to be confused.

It's going to be a long summer of this campaign.

Those of you who put politics in the background and wait until the last minute to decide about who you will vote for, may want to consider changing that tactic for this election cycle.

While there will be plenty of information around in the last few weeks prior to the election to sort through. Finding the truth and honesty in the campaign ads, the media madness, and all that will surround the election will leave your head spinning.

The concern about that is: that given all that hype, confusion, misinformation, lies, half-truths, foreign interference and myths you may just decide not to vote.

And that would be a tragedy....
