“Morning Joe”: Let’s face it, it’s impossible to square Biden’s positions on the All-Star Game and the Masters – By ALLAHPUNDIT (Hot Air) / April 07 2021
Well, yes. Which is why I wrote yesterday that something must be going on behind the scenes to explain Biden’s boycott enthusiasm for the All-Star Game and subsequent neutrality towards the Masters. There’s no way to reconcile those positions logically. His “evolution” can only be explained by political pressures to which we’re not privy.
Or maybe he just hates baseball?
It could be that the White House has gotten some polling in the last few days to make them think twice. A new SurveyMonkey poll for the Daily Wire finds that Americans are leery about sports becoming more politicized and warmer towards parts of Georgia’s new law than the “Jim Crow 2.0” demagoguery would lead you to expect:
Another interesting finding of the poll is that, despite an avalanche of negative media coverage, key provisions of Georgia’s new election law are actually popular. 78% of respondents, including a majority of Democrats, MLB fans, non-white Americans, and all age groups, support the law’s ID requirement for absentee voting. 63% of respondents, including a majority of non-whites, and 48% of Democrats, support Georgia’s law restrictions on the handing out of gifts, including refreshments, to voters near polling stations and voting lines. Meanwhile, 67% of respondents, including a majority of Democrats and non-whites, support Georgia’s new policies regulating ballot drop boxes.
