You know the situation is dire with Biden as President, when even CNN reports on how bad he’s running the show.
According to a new CNN poll, the majority of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s first year in office and deem it a “failure.”
“Nearly 6 in 10 Americans disapprove of how Joe Biden is handling his presidency, with most of that group saying there’s literally nothing Biden has done since taking office that they approve of,” CNN detailed.
The survey shows that 58 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s job performance, with 41 percent approving of it. A total of a seven point increase since the last survey, which was taken last year in December.
Past surveys conducted in March, April, August, September, October, November and December, showed a steady increase in disapproval, with Biden’s overall popularity sinking, tanking by 17 percentage points.
Independents also aren’t impressed and it shows with 64 percent of them disapproving of Biden and Republicans currently sit at a whopping 91 percent disapproval rate. Democrats are still holding on to Joe, however, their approval dropped 11 points since summer 2021.
According to CNN, “Some of the shift in Biden’s numbers comes from a change in Americans’ partisan tilt: Republicans and Democrats were about at parity in the new poll, with fewer identifying as Democrats than in other recent CNN polling.”
According to the outlet:
When those who disapproved of Biden’s overall performance were asked to name a single thing he’d done that they did approved of, 56% had nothing positive to say. “I’m hard pressed to think of a single thing he has done that benefits the country,” wrote one survey respondent.
Of those who generally approved of Biden, a smaller 26% couldn’t find anything negative to say. “I totally believe that he has the best interests of the American people in mind,” wrote another respondent. “I think he understands the severity and importance of his job and is doing the best he can.”
Respondents were asked to also rate Biden’s first year as a success or failure. The majority of people, 57 percent, said that his first year has been a “failure.”
Biden’s strong disapproval rating from the public, comes after a year of rising inflation, rising cost of fuel, food and commodities and a skyrocketing crime rate.
The Department of Labor has found that consumer prices have “jumped by the most”, up by 7.5 percent, the highest its been in close to 40 years.
And while polls are quite clearly showing his unpopularity, the residents of Culpeper, Virginia, heckled Biden with shouts of “Let’s Go Brandon,” during a visit on Thursday.
Biden went to deliver a speech about reducing the costs of Healthcare through his Build Back Better agenda at a local community college.
A warm reception was not what he received, as a group of protestors, flying flags that read “Joe Biden Sucks” and “Build Crack Better”, an obvious reference to Biden’s plan to provide crackheads with free “smoking kits,” AKA crackpipes.
After Biden’s Build Back Better bill died in the Senate the president is said to be working on focusing on individual provisions. The event will mainly revolve around Biden’s plan to reduce prescription drug and insulin prices.
Joining Biden, was Xavier Bacerra, the Secretary for Health and Human Services. Bacerra was heavily criticized by the administration for what they called a “passive” approach to COVID-19.
Biden also took the opportunity to plug Obamacare, and promised to “do more” to pay for healthcare and medication.
Biden didn’t miss the opportunity to talk about his own experiences, about when he had suffered from multiple brain aneurysms and his son Beau dying of brain cancer.
“I’ve long said that health care should be a right, not a privilege in this country,” he said.
While speaking, Biden mentioned the soaring inflation rates, the worst since 1982. “Inflation is up,” Biden admitted. “I know food prices are up. We’re going to bring them down,” he promised.
Surveys show no one in America believes him.
