Just last month, Issues & Insights reported a poll it conducted with TIPP, the most accurate predictor of the last five presidential elections, regarding people’s feelings about COVID.

Also, some of us recall, earlier this year, that most people associated the flag of Canada not with the dreadful government but with its dissidents. Look, you really had to be here, standing in a blistering wind on a highway overpass, to understand.
It is nature vs. bureaucracy. Finally, the big news is: The flag of Canada came to be that of the people of Canada, not of its horrible government. And, after an old lady was trampled by police horses, everyone really knows this.
