The good news for Joe Biden is, or was, that he won the 2020 election. The bad news for Joe Biden, well, let’s just say he’s got company in the disapproval dumpster. All over the world, voters are engaging in what can only be called payback to the national leaders who ran their lives during the pandemic.

On Sunday, France’s Emmanuel Macron’s centrist party lost its legislative majority, with gains for protest-vote parties on the left and right. In Colombia, the far left came to power this week with the election of a former M-19 guerrilla.
