New York Times columnist and pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson is saying that Donald Trump is now seen as the ‘return to normalcy’ candidate.
This is a shocking turn of events for anyone who has been following political news for the last several years. When Trump won in 2016, liberals all over the country started saying “this is not normal.” It became a common talking point.
Then in 2020, Democrats claimed that Biden would be the ‘return to normalcy’ candidate. Everyone can see how that worked out.

NYT Pollster: Donald Trump Seen as the Return to Normalcy Candidate
Voters perceive former President Donald Trump as the return to normalcy candidate after President Joe Biden failed to “put things back in order,” pollster and New York Times columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson recently wrote.
Anderson’s observation highlights Biden’s failure to restore America to a state of predictable stability following three years of his chaotic policies:

– Record high invasion on the southern border
“The 2024 election will not be fought along the conventional axis of left and right or even change and more of the same,” Anderson wrote in the Times. “Voters very much want change; they have made that clear with the absolutely abominable ratings they give our leadership in poll after poll.”

It’s amazing to hear this from a liberal at the NY Times.
If you think Trump is a chaotic menace and that voters in November will obviously agree, consider this a warning.
Right now, a non-insignificant number of voters look back at the prior president’s term with some fondness, at least relative to today. https://t.co/Lz8uYpQ163
