Fox News Poll: Biden more trusted on coronavirus, Trump on economy

The latest Fox News Poll finds voters trust Biden to do a better job than Trump on health care by 17 points, coronavirus by 9, and relations with China by 6.  Trump is trusted more on the economy by a slim 3-point margin.

In the 2020 ballot test, Biden leads Trump by 48-40 percent.  Biden’s 8-point advantage is outside the poll’s margin of error.  However, given that 11 percent are undecided or plan to vote for someone else, neither candidate hits 50 percent support.  The race could go either way.


  1. What are you going to do if (when) Trump wins this time?

    Whatever you do, don't blame Russia again please. That would be extremely boring.

  2. Torah thought on this week’s Haftorah to במדבר from Hosea:
    “The word of the Lord that came to Hosea son of Beeri, in the reigns of Kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah of Judah, and in the reign of King Jeroboam son of Joash of Israel. When the Lord first spoke to Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea, Go, get yourself a wife of whoredom and children of whoredom; for the land will stray from following the Lord. So he went and married Gomer daughter of Diblaim. She conceived and bore him a son,” (Hosea 1:1-3).
    In the Haftorah for במדבר we read: “Rebuke your mother, rebuke her— For she is not My wife And I am not her husband—And let her put away her harlotry from her face And her adultery from between her breasts.” (Hosea 2:4).
    Hertz Chumash p. 582:
    “plead with your mother. The ‘mother’ is collective Israel, and since this is addressed to the Israelites individually, it is equivalent to saying, Plead with one another (Kimchi). she is not My wife...hisband. An ancient formula for divorcing a wife (Cassuto). God is casting Israel off, because she deserted Him for Baal-worship. harlotries. The image appropriate to a dissolute woman is continued. The false teachers and corrupt worship of the surrounding nations are meant (Kimchi). Let her put these things away, and in repentance return to God.”

    “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged the Palestinian Authority to keep the security agreements in place, saying they keep Israelis and Palestinians safe. “I am not exactly sure what to make of his statement, but I regret that he has decided to abrogate these agreements,” he said of Mr. Abbas while speaking to reporters at the State Department on Wednesday. Mr. Pompeo said the Palestinians have so far refused to agree to the Trump peace plan as a basis for negotiations, as the Israelis have. “We hope that the leadership in the Palestinian Authority will see that that’s in their people’s best interest and that we can move out in that way,” Mr. Pompeo said.”

    My theory. Trump is king. The captain of his palace guards is Pompeo. Pompeo follows the wishes of Trump beautifully and faithfully. Did God really tell Hosea to marry a member of the resistance, Gomer? Surely it is meant figuratively.
    Figuratively = used to indicate a departure from a literal use of words; metaphorically. "we left a lot of people literally and figuratively in the dark"

  3. when he loses I will blame the chinese

  4. See

    When asked why there are politics surrounding the use of hydroxychloroquine, Dr. Zelenko said, "I would think you would want to know more about the actual treatment, how to publicize it, how to really end the death and the misery and the suffering and the economic disaster....instead of trying to get me into politics, political rhetoric."
    "I can give you reasons why there's resistance, it's very simple. It's called politics, profit, arrogance, and fear."

    Can we do less politics and less political rhetoric and more Torah, Daas Torah?

    It's like Moshe Deleon claiming his book was written by the Tanna Rashbi. People wanted to believe it, and that's how it came to be accepted.

  6. Torah thought on parsha נשא
    “Speak to the Israelites: When a man or woman commits any wrong toward a fellow man, thus breaking faith with the Lord, and that person realizes his guilt, he shall confess the wrong that he has done. He shall make restitution in the principal
    amount and add one-fifth to it, giving it to him whom he has wronged.” (Numbers 5:6-7).
    Kiddushin 35a
    “AND ALL NEGATIVE PRECEPTS etc. Whence do we know it? Said Rab Judah in Rab's name, and the School of R. Ishmael taught likewise, Scripture saith, When a man or a woman shall commit any sin that men commit [. . . then that soul shall be guilty] [Num. V, 6]: thus the Writ equalized woman and man in respect of all penalties [decreed] in the Torah [negative precepts involve flagellation]. The School of R. Eliezer taught: Scripture saith, [Now these are the judgments] which thou shalt set before them [Ex. XXI, 1]: The Writ equalized woman and man in respect of all civil laws in Scripture.”
    Allow me to show here my letter today to NYS Ct of Appeals:

    “2.My motion return date 6/1/202 Exhibit A Judge Prus Order May 6, 2020 states: “Good afternoon Mr.\ Aranoff: In reference to your email to Justice Prus, please be informed that attached order is a final order and there are no other issues to address. Thank you.”

    3.My motion return date 6/1/202 Exhibit B: Judge Prus Final Order November 16, 2016 states: “Mr. Aranoff objects to the payment of 55\% of his TIAA-CREF pension to the defendant. The papers are replete with statements, letter, and materials that have no bearing on the application or the underlying matrimonial proceeding and its resolution.”

    4.Allow me to elaborate on my question I pose in my letter May 20, 2020: “Question: Once a husband gives a Jewish get to his wife in a rabbinic court in NYS, is her status changed in any way under the laws of NYS?”

    5.I seek the NYS Court of Appeals to clarify the law of NYS that if a NYS resident and USA citizen (Susan) receives a Get in a rabbinic court in NYS before witnesses, she and he (Gerald) are both free to remarry.

    6.Judge Prus falsely claims May 6, 2020 that there are no other issues to address. Judge Prus notes November 16, 2016 that I seek to free my pension but then falsely claims that I don't address that issue at all.

    7.Judge Prus is overreaching, defined as the gaining of an unconscionable advantage over another especially by unfair or deceptive means. Judge Prus is overreaching saying I cannot submit more papers to him. Judge Prus controls my pension. I understand that Judge Prus is Jewish and believes in the Bible. The Bible states: “A man takes a wife and possesses her. She fails to please him because he finds something obnoxious about her, and he writes her a bill of divorcement, hands it to her, and sends her away from his house; she leaves his household and becomes the wife of another man;” (Deuteronomy 24:1-2).

    8.Susan got her freedom to remarry when she received the Get in Rabbi Aryeh Ralbag's rabbinic court before witnesses February 17, 1993. According to NYS law Judge Rigler could no longer issue an order of separation based on abandonment to Susan after Susan received a Get. According to NYS law I became free to remarry and have more children after Susan received the Get. This is an important issue for the NYS Court of Appeals to address. Women rights groups fight recalcitrant husbands who refuse a Get to their wives. This was Mendel Epstein et al main activity. NYS is in urgent need of clarification of the NYS law on the Get.”
