The low information voter
If the goal is to paralyze Trump, cause him to wither in the face of constant attack and attempt to appease his tormentors, it isn’t working. He’s standing taller every day, almost as though he’s anticipated this moment all his life. And the people who cared not a whit for politics before the pandemic have noticed.
If the goal is to paralyze Trump, cause him to wither in the face of constant attack and attempt to appease his tormentors, it isn’t working. He’s standing taller every day, almost as though he’s anticipated this moment all his life. And the people who cared not a whit for politics before the pandemic have noticed.

Among America’s 235 million people eligible to cast ballots this fall are low-information voters, or “lowfos,” a sizable subset of the electorate’s independents bloc. Many lead busy lives, don’t venture beyond the headlines, and are generally “a pox on all your houses” apolitical.

During their confinement, lowfos have been watching Trump’s daily tour de force briefings and seen a confident, informed, indefatigable leader taking charge and making decisions.  It has not escaped them that the president was a businessman with real-world experience most of his life while the swamp creatures haranguing him have been Washington pols most of theirs.  Anyone who hasn’t drunk the Left’s Kool-Aid knows that the “loyal opposition” and their media cohorts are doing everything in their power to shake public confidence in the president for political gain.  

When Democrats started the blame game early on, they had already lost the “Trump’s at fault” argument to common sense.  In a recent American Spectator piece, a doctor with an infectious diseases background makes a point about culpability that people not suffering from TDS understand intuitively:
