Quotes for our Times:

Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: Growing Latino support for border wall, strict enforcement.

But there have been many, many surveys suggesting movement of Latino voters away from Biden and toward Trump. Shifting Latino views on border security are part of that, but remember that the top issue for Latino voters, as it is for everyone else, is the economy and inflation. Put it all together, and it appears falling Latino support will be a major problem for Biden's reelection effort.

Matt Vespa, Senior Editor at Townhall. com: Here's what happened when Google employees staged an anti-Israel protest in their boss' office.

It’s why Democrats have walked a politically schizophrenic line with Israel by bashing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while also saying their support for the Jewish state is ironclad in the aftermath of Iran’s ballistic missile barrage this past weekend. This issue isn’t a hard one, folks. You’re either with the terrorists or not. For the pro-Hamas caucus at Google, they’ve made their position clear. They should be fired, and this contract [Google's $1.2 billion contract it shares with Amazon to provide cloud services and data centers to the Israeli government] will remain.

So, what did this accomplish? If they had issues, find another job. It’s that simple.

Guy Benson,'s Political Editor: What new 2024 polling in six key swing states reveals.

Bidenworld needs to pick: Either (1) Trump's legal peril is a serious matter, and Biden will remain studiously above that fray, to avoid the appearance of politics in the prosecutions, or (2) Trump's trials are fundamentally fair game in the political realm. If it's the latter, Team Biden shouldn't hesitate to dunk on its opponent's travails — in this case at the hands of a prosecutor from Biden's party, presided over by a judge who donated to Biden's last campaign against Trump. I'm not sure voters who aren't already solidly anti-Trump will be impressed by that overall look.

Leah Barkoukis is the online features editor at Reporter corners KJP on gas prices.

But the reporter pushed back, pointing out “it’s only $0.03 lower than a year ago” and “up 52 percent from when President Biden came into office.”

According to the American Automobile Association, the national average price for a gallon of gas was $3.644 on Tuesday, whereas a year ago the national average was $3.669 per gallon. On Jan. 20, 2021, Biden's first day in office, the average price for a gallon of gas nationwide was about $2.39.
