    The Spin

    Narrative A

    Comback time? Although Clinton hasn't given any clear indication if she intends to run for president, with Biden's old age and low approval ratings and Harris' unpopularity, a return would be welcome.

    Narrative B

    Harris and Biden's numbers at this stage may be poor, but so are Clinton's . This shows that Democrat voters want new choices and the party is in chaos. Meanwhile, the GOP seems ready to galvanize around Trump.

    Pro-Trump narrative

    Clinton sounded a lot like a presidential candidate in her speech, and that's great news for Trump. According to a recent poll, if she makes another run for the presidency Trump would beat her by 10 points.
