USAToday Poll: Biden Approval 41%, Disapproval 55%

Mr. 81 Million Votes' popularity collapsed faster than the Afghan National Army.

Both were paper-only fictions created by the Deep State.

Biden's job approval is now lower than Trump's average, which was usually around 43%.

In Democrat-skewing polls, of course!


For President Joe Biden, the cost of the war's chaotic end has been steep. His overall job approval rating now stands at 41% who approve versus 55% who disapprove -- a big drop in the closely watched barometer of political health. Until last week, national polls generally showed his approval rating above 50%.

Note that USAToday/Suffolk does not mention their last poll findings on this question, and I couldn't find it on Real Clear Politics, either.

So I don't know how bad USAToday's skew is, or what the change is from their last sounding.

...

Now, while he has held the backing of 87% of Democrats, only 32% of independents say he's doing a good job.

...

Half approved of his handling of the pandemic, 39% of his handling of the economy, 26% of his handling of the Afghan withdrawal.

Unlike other pollsters who say that Afghanistan is not a main driver of Biden's collapse, this one claims it is:

"Today, President Biden's overall approval has taken a turn for the worse due to his awful job performance rating on Afghanistan," said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk Political Research Center. "His approval on immigration and the economy are also upside down. The only issue keeping him remotely in the game is his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, where he is barely at 50%."
...


Biden's decision to pull out troops was backed by most Americans, 53%-38%. But almost two-thirds, 62%, disapproved of the way his administration has handled that withdrawal.

Biden gets blamed for this catastrophic withdrawal, but not for the situation in Afghanistan itself -- George W. Bush is blamed by 62% of the public for that.

Biden has been found at under 50% approval in five polls straight.

By my count, this is the 5th straight poll that shows Biden under 50% in approval, but this one is far worse than the other ones (Rasmussen, for example, has him at 46% approval). 41% approval is reaching the depths that former President Donald Trump and former President George W. Bush reached in their lowest moments. This is not the kind of damage that is just repaired overnight either. In fact, it’s the kind of damage that is rarely repaired.

Indeed, the Real Clear Politics average of all polls finally puts this demented fool underwater:

Screenshot (436).png

Republicans are running ahead of their 2020 performance in special elections.

Across more than 30 special state legislative and federal elections during the Biden presidency, Republicans are doing 4 points better on average than former President Donald Trump did in these same districts last year.

...


Such a change is not too large. Remember, too, that Trump lost nationally by 4 points, so a 4-point swing toward Republicans suggests a neutral national environment.

Sure.


But this would likely be enough for Republicans to take back the US House of Representatives, especially considering that they are in a good position for redistricting.

What really jumps out, though, is the trend.

When you look at the first 17 special elections this year (through early April), the Republican overperformance over Trump was just a point. Examining the last 17 special elections, the overperformance has been 7 points. When you splice the data even further, Republicans have been outperforming the 2020 baseline by double-digits since the beginning of July.

Whether such a shift sustains itself can't be known at this point. Things may shift back to Democrats.

It shouldn't be too surprising if the Republican overperformance does hold. Back in 2009, there was a big movement away from Democrats in special elections toward the middle of the year. This foretold Republicans doing very well in the 2010 midterms.

The one thing that is clear is that the special elections this year look nothing like they did four years ago at this point. Back then, Democrats were outperforming Hillary Clinton's performance by 14 points in the average special state legislative and federal elections.

Democrats went on to take back House control in 2018.

Update: Via Huck Follywood, A Federalist/Susquehanna poll found Biden's approval at a Bush-like 38% as Afghanistan crumbled.

Of our last five presidents -- Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump, and Biden -- four have been objectively bad presidents who have left the country weaker and poorer than the one they were elected to lead.

NeverTrump voted against the only good president in that batch -- twice.

Everyone make sure you send them money! They need your money to Fight For You!

They're working on a new, improved Fight For You (F4U) Initiative.

But they need your help, friends!

51 It's really Colon Powell. He was the one who came up with the "you break it, you bought it" bullshit. He convinced Bush we couldn't go into Afghanistan and bomb the shit out of the place and kill the Taliban without "building back better" for the Afghani people. But Bush took the ball and ran with it, believing (against all the evidence and against common sense) that we could build some sort of modern, progressive, western-style nation in Afghanistan that would serve as an aspirational example for its backwards, repressed neighbors. It was always lunacy, and now we're paying the price for indulging this fantasy.

Agreed, this doesn't make sense. Let's assume that nation-building is a fool's errand, for the sake of argument. The beauty - and the drawback - of presidential elections is that a new administration comes in and evaluates existing policy. The bad ones jettison good policies, and the good ones jettison bad. If Obama thought that it was a good idea to stay, it was his responsibility to make it work, not W's.

He convinced Bush we couldn't go into Afghanistan and bomb the shit out of the place and kill the Taliban without "building back better" for the Afghani people. But Bush took the ball and ran with it, believing (against all the evidence and against common sense) that we could build some sort of modern, progressive, western-style nation in Afghanistan that would serve as an aspirational example for its backwards, repressed neighbors. It was always lunacy, and now we're paying the price for indulging this fantasy.

I don't think they realize how a reaction to criticism by laughing at it actually shows deceit at its most obvious. Most anyone who is confronted with a slanderous lie does not laugh. They get angry, and rightly so. Those who laugh, Biden, Harris, Hillary, Newsome, etc. still believe that it has the opposite effect - that it is so outrageously funny,they just have to laugh it off. It it a stupid and childish ruse.

Obama and Hillary (his SoS) also ramped up the political presence in Afghanistan, and spent WAY more money than GWB.
In fairness to Bush, I think he knew that Afghanistan was a backwater nowhere, but he didn't have the gumption to pull us out, leaving the door open for Obama to do his stupidest.

Ok, you've gotten me thinking about something with this comment. Rank speculation, of course. Seriously.

Say you're the US. You're getting your butt kicked by China, they're extending their influence throughout Asia, and you're not into pumping more money into maintaining bases to try to hold them back. Wouldn't you want a gadfly in the area; a loose cannon in the same way North Korea is for China, to keep China and Russia in line? If so, then why not let your CIA head go to Kabul and make a deal? Money for hostages, and autonomy to cause all the trouble you want in the region as long as you leave us alone.

177 Money for hostages, and autonomy to cause all the trouble you want in the region as long as you leave us alone.

The problem is that that only works if the Talis know there's no downside to causing trouble. The PLA would have no compunctions about turning Afghanistan into a depopulated wasteland. As a bonus, it's easier to mine lithium that way. No locals complaining that you aren't creating any jobs.

Also, don't forget that Bush was under a lot of pressure to win in A-stan. It was the "good war." That was from JEF and the dems. I get the feeling Bush knew it was a quagmire but his hands were tied since he had to win Iraq first. So he mostly just let it simmer and not get worse. A lot of this mess goes to the Dems and their traitorous reversal on the wars once things got rough and their base wanted another Vietnam to protest against.

Whole thing boils down to logistics. Afghanistan is surrounded by Iran, and Pakistan (both of whom support the Taliban), and the Ex Soviet stans to the North (which are part of the Russian Near Abroad.

No ports. Few Rail Lines. So the ONLY way we could supply troops, is by air, which is unsustainable. Invading with no clear line of supply was stupid. Staying there for 20 years, with no clear line of supply was EXPENSIVE. Withdrawing troops must now be done by Air, which means we leave a LOT of shit for them to scrounge.

"Worse."
Posted by: portlandon at August 24, 2021 05:55 PM (+oR7L)

The thing comparing the Carter years to today's Democrats, is that at least Carter was somewhat American in thought, word, and deed.
Not today's Democrats. CCP-loving cocksuckers all the way.

Posted by: Braenyard

The Universal Life Church will ordain you online for free, in about five minutes.

Perfectly legal.

They will try to upsell you later (for instance, if you want a doctorate, or want to become a bishop, or if you want to buy their fancy "kits" that contain things like wedding certificates), but the basic ordination is completely free, and completely legally valid.

The people who started this country had had a gut full of centrally-controlled hierarchical religions.

Y'know, if I were an American expatriate anywhere in the world, I'd be seriously planning to return to the US, post haste. I largely couldn't give a fuck about what happens to the rest of the world now, but the simple fact is, Bai-Den has signaled to every savage in the world that Americans are fair game.

Although the US is collapsing, at least you can be armed here so that you have a small chance of going down fighting rather than kneeling and waiting for the dull knife or the bullet.
