    Biden's Pollster: John Anzalone

    Biden's Pollster: John Anzalone

    "Joe Biden was right, and I was wrong, and most people were."

    The president's pollster, John Anzalone, joins Major this week to discuss the key takeaways from the 2022 midterm elections. He believes Democrats showed surprising strength in races across a "toss-up nation," thanks in part to late-breaking independent voters who couldn't stomach voting for "extreme candidates on the right."

    Looking ahead to 2024, Anzalone believes that if Biden runs, he'll beat former president Donald Trump "like a drum."

    Plus: is Florida completely out of reach for Democrats in the next cycle?

CBS is corporate owned . Their agenda is not in the interest of anyone other than the 2% wealthy of this country.

Great conversations with all sorts of people. I do check out on some of the Trump cheerleaders but some of the conservatives do a great job describing their views.
