Juneteenth Gloom Is in the Air, Especially for Democrats

Today is Juneteenth. Let’s celebrate.

Happy June 19th To all those celebrating, I mean everyone on Wall Street. The markets were closed today, but I wanted to bring you Breitbart Business Digest anyway.

Also known as Juneteenth “Liberation Day” It commemorates the day in 1865 when Union soldiers announced their emancipation to black Americans in Galveston, Texas. Of course, the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed some two and a half years earlier, which adds a bit of awkwardness to the occasion, which is probably why the holiday wasn’t officially adopted until recently.

He has served in public office for 50 years and has had a tumultuous history when it comes to race relations. Joe Biden Last year, he suddenly declared that this holiday “must be observed.” He is, above all, a politician.

So here’s the situation: government employees are off, but many private sector employees are still going to work and earning tax revenue to fund their free time.

Making things even worse for Joe Biden, the second most important issue according to respondents was Illegal immigrationThis was the top answer for 19.7% of those surveyed.

It’s only going to get worse for Joe and the Democrats. abortion The survey ranked it last (4.1%). Gun Control (5.8 percent) and Climate Change (5.9%), and all of the Democratic candidates’ major policy issues.

In a national opinion poll paint The presidential election is expected to be fierce as the first debate approaches next week, but Joe Biden’s case is clear. Unpopular with ordinary Americans.

So the economy and Biden inflation could be the deciding factors in this election. People who dislike both candidates Voting against their (perceived) economic interestsWe won’t know until November, but it’s Biden and the Democrats who will have to work hard until then.
