Yes it is disappointing, but perhaps Trump has had insufficient support within the swamp itself, to drain the swamp - remember his 2016 win margin was in the 1% range, i.e. small, and remember also the ex Republican "never Trumpers" etc., no doubt many presently sitting R's are swamp cretins...

Comparing Biden's rallies of around zero to may be a dozen "supporters" where on occasion there are more Trump people protesting Biden than Biden supporters at Biden's own rally (chanting "4 more years!" :D ), and where Trump, no matter where he goes (regional airports, stadiums), gets usually thousands of supporters, there is something amiss, and the amiss seems to be the media and the polls - there is a total mismatch between reality on the ground of the respective rallies, and the poll results.  Let's hope the DemonRats "the fix is in" fix, is not actually in and that sufficient populists turn out to give Trump a big enough margin that the Red team has no option but to finally allow some real swamp draining.

Good luck USAians.
