If you can hear the primal screaming at night, it is just the Democrats when they realize that President Trump's approval rating today is 10 points higher than it was on Election Day in 2016.
And if that's not reason enough to panic, just watch one of the broadcasts from Joe Biden's home.
That is just depressing........................if you are a Democrat anyways.
Trump's Real Clear Polling Approval rating is 47.3% compared to the 37.5 that it was on election day and remember Trump clobbered Hillary.
The president's handling of the DTMNBN (Disease That Must Not Be Named) crises is one of the big reasons for the surge in his overall popularity.
Add to that the fact that Biden's podcasts are attended by fewer people than a party at the Maytag repairman's house and you can see why panic is setting in and talk is moving to Andrew Cuomo of New York.
His RealClearPolitics average approval rating today is 47.3.
On Election Day 2016 it was 37.5.
And he won.
He’s almost 10 points higher now. pic.twitter.com/v04CumMRRN

This is the highest job approval rating from the RealClearPolitics aggregate of Trump’s presidency, higher even than when he took office.
(Before now, his highest rating was 45.9 percent on Feb. 2, 2017.) Furthermore, it was a lot higher than it was on Election Day 2016.
Trump was helped by the fact that Hillary Clinton was an unusually unpopular candidate. According to the RealClearPolitics average, even at the closest point between the two, on May 25, 2016, the difference between their popularity-unpopularity gulfs was 2.8 points in favor of Clinton.
On Nov. 7, 2016, meanwhile, that gulf was 8.4 points in Clinton’s favor. Clinton’s favorable/unfavorable numbers were 41.8 percent to 54.4 percent, a -12.6-point gap. Trump’s, meanwhile, were 37.5 to 58.5 — a -21-point gap.
