While the mainstream media continues to sing Joe Biden’s praises, ordinary Americans are souring on his presidency.
A recent poll shows the president has lost a significant amount of support. A whopping 55% of poll respondents have said they are pessimistic about the direction of the country.
The loss of enthusiasm isn’t limited to a single party, as President Biden has lost ground with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. Even Democratic pollster John Zogby was forced to give the administration a D-minus score last week due to President Biden’s disastrous CNN town hall, court losses, and a rise in COVID-19 cases even after more than half of eligible Americans have been vaccinated.
Conservative pundit Jed Babbin likewise gave the administration a D- while pointing out additional yet obvious problems such as rampant inflation, President Biden’s chilly response to small business owners who can’t find enough workers, and avoiding addressing the origins of COVID-19.
Biden’s ratings are sure to worry Democrat officials planning for the upcoming mid-term elections. They show a steep decline in favorability among the very people the Democrats need in order to retain control of both houses of Congress. While over 70 percent of individuals approved of President Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in late March, this number has dropped to just 63 percent. Fewer than half of all independents approved of the way the president is handling the economic recovery from last year’s lockdowns. Less than 40 percent of Americans approve of the way the Administration is handling the border crisis, gun violence, and crime.
All told, close to half of all poll respondents say that the President has done a not-so-good or downright poor job of keeping his campaign promises. To make matters worse, the decline in ratings could easily be exacerbated by droughts in the western states, a rise in food prices, mask and vaccine mandates, and especially a future lockdown.
No President is perfect, and it’s impossible for any occupant of the White House to solve all the nation’s problems to everyone’s satisfaction. Even so, President Biden’s rapidly declining poll ratings make it clear that he’s not up to the task of solving anyone’s problems.
Rampant inflation is set to get even worse. Crime is rampant in many large cities as progressive lawmakers call for defunding the police. Most all, Americans just aren’t buying what the regime is saying about the pandemic.
