After Prez Trump was ousted from office, we noticed a great deal of celebration and hope on local social media feeds . . . We're guessing that all of the grumbling was over on Parler and then subsequently deleted.
Now that the nation has settled into the current administration it's difficult to gauge local reaction to the current Prez because he's simply not a very popular topic of conversation.
Polling suggests he's more popular than Prez Trump and a bevy of free money likely has a lot to do with that . . . Of course haters and trolls abound but their criticism doesn't really influence as many people as politicos fear.
And so, for the moment, we'll just make a simple observation . . . Look around local streets: Signs supporting former Prez Obama are apparent, look even more closely and there's still tribute to former Prez Trump. But our current Prez simply doesn't have a significant local following or fan base if local chatter, street signs, bumper stickers or any visible communication provide clues as to the feeling of the local electorate. Of course this isn't a scientific study but it's more independent than so many partisan numbers that are broadcast.
And so we offer sample polling as we take a pause for the overnight . . .

And on the related issue of immigration, Biden stands at 42% approval and 56% disapproval.
