Democrat Joe Biden’s popularity and job approval ratings have sunk even further, according to polls accumulated after his disastrous first State of the Union address to Congress and the American people last Tuesday.
Democrat pundits continue to deny the fact that Biden is leading the party into a mess for the 2022 midterms as they scramble to distort Biden’s numbers.
The Democrats conveniently ignore all data outside of the data that makes them feel better. In other words, Democrat voters want to be lied to apparently, because even their own polls show a looming disaster for Biden because of his policies. But their media gives them “happy talk” so they can “save face”.
“If they wanted Biden‘s true approval rating, they’d poll people as they’re buying fuel,” one Twitter poster commented in response to the recent polling data, where Democrat enablers of Biden’s are claiming POTUS is rising in popularity.
Conservative Brief reported the following numbers- which should be humiliating for Democrats if they ever grasped reality:
A Civiqs daily tracking poll shows that only 35 percent approve of Biden’s job performance.
Similarly in the Rasmussen daily tracking poll, just 45 percent approved of Biden’s performance.
One NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll did find the president’s approval rating jump 8 percentage points from last month’s 39 percent to 47 percent after his State of the Union message, but it seems to be an outlier.
NPR attributed the improvement in their poll to a “rally-around-the-Ukrainian-flag moment” for the commander-in-chief.
The Real Clear Politics average of polls still finds Biden nearly 12 percentage points underwater with just 41.6 percent approving and 53.5 percent disapproving, which is around where he has been for months.
That’s not the only lousy polling news that has hit Biden recently.
Last week, a Washington Post/ABC News poll found that a majority of adults in the United States believe Biden is mentally unfit to serve as president while also revealing the lowest job approval rating (37 percent) from the poll since becoming president over a year ago.
“The recent poll revealed that the ‘underlying weakness’ is to the degree that most adults ‘have doubts about his personal capacities.’ When the respondents were asked if he was a strong leader, 59 percent said no, while 36 percent said yes. In fact, those percentages resemble his job approval; 37 percent approve and 55 percent disapprove,” Breitbart reported.
Here is where the rescue mission begins:
Left-leaning, The Hill, reported on the left-leaning NPR- PBS’s post-SOTU polling- which was designed to artificially inflate Biden’s numbers and give some comfort to those in the Democrat party who are awake enough to be panicking over a disastrous Biden year.
They say he is seeing a boost!
Joe Biden is seeing a boost to his approval rating following his first State of the Union address this week, with a poll released Friday showing him at 47 percent.
The latest NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist National Poll found that 47 percent of Americans surveyed approve of the job he is doing as president, which is a jump from the 39 percent approval rating he had in the same poll last month.
“This is an unusual bounce,” Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, said in a statement. “It gets him back to where he was pre-Afghanistan.”
The last time Biden had a higher approval rating was in August, when it was at 49 percent. While presidents can sometimes get a bounce after a State of the Union, one of more than 4 points in an NPR poll has happened only six times since 1978.
Here is what they are covering up. What they don’t want you to look at is the Independents:
The poll also found Biden’s approval rating among Democrats is on the upswing on issues like Ukraine and COVID-19. Fifty-five percent of Democrats approve of how he is handling the coronavirus pandemic, up from 47 percent in February. Ok- that is their big story. Now for a deeper look at their data:
Also, from the NPR-PBS Poll, 89% of Independents disapprove of the job Biden is doing (See Page 3). With 80% of Independents saying they “strongly disapprove” of Biden (see page 5). 89% of Independents say they disapprove of how Biden is handling the economy. According to NPR-PBS, 76% of independents say they disapprove of how Biden is handling the Pandemic (see page 9), 50% of independents disapprove of how Biden is handling Ukraine.
Radical far left-leaning Forbes was desperate to push the idea that Biden was rising in popularity after the SOTU. Here is how Forbes propagandized the same NPR-PBS polling data:
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has led to a spike in gas prices—but many respondents don’t mind. A 69% majority of respondents said they support economic sanctions against Russia “even if it results in higher energy prices” at home, including 58% of Republicans.
While Americans approve of how Biden’s handling the conflict, they’re still fearful of what may come next. A 78% majority say they’re worried about potential Russian cyberattacks against the U.S. or that war will break out in Europe, and 70% are afraid the conflict will lead to the use of nuclear weapons.
That is a surprising tangent. It is unclear if tainting messaging on poll data and misdirecting the American people on the sinking popularity of Biden is going to help them at the ballot box- when nothing Biden or the Democrats is helping the American people at the gas station. That is where pollsters really could start gauging the American voter’s coming response to Democrats in 2022. And is free for the asking there- 24/7.
Just heard shouting at the gas station, this is what he said, “F*ck Joe Biden.”
