President Joe Biden is not doing so well. After a laughable performance at the G7 summit, he is facing several issues at home that threaten to render his presidency impotent.

However, despite CNN’s optimism, it is unlikely that Democrats will be able to put enough butter on these bills to slide them through. Even with the advantages that Democrats have in the House and Senate, ramming through what would essentially be a federal takeover of state elections
