CNBC Poll: Biden Falls to 41% Approval as Public Loses Hope on Covid and the Economy

The Wages of Trumpalnizure.


Just 41% of the public approve of President Joe Biden's job performance, compared with 52% who disapprove, according to the CNBC All-America Economic Survey.

Fifty percent now approve of his Covid-19 handling, compared with 53% in July, and 45% disapprove, compared with just 38%.

Inflation now ties with the coronavirus as the biggest concern for Americans, up 16 points from the prior survey.


President Joe Biden's approval rating slipped deeply underwater in the CNBC All-America Economic Survey as Americans soured on his economic leadership, lost some confidence in his handling of the coronavirus, and grew increasingly concerned about inflation and supply shortages.

...

Biden's negative 11-point net rating compared with a positive 3 points in the July survey, when 48% approved and 45% disapproved.

Behind the decline is a surge in negative views of his handling of the economy, with just 40% approving and 54% disapproving, a 7-point increase from July.

A bare majority of Americans still approve his handling of the virus, but the margin narrowed considerably. Fifty percent now approve compared with 53% in July, and 45% disapprove, compared with just 38%.

The president's numbers are declining as concerns about the economy, inflation and supply shortages rise sharply.

Inflation now ties with the coronavirus as the biggest concern for Americans, up 16 points from the prior survey. A plurality of 47% of the public believe there will be a recession in the next year, up 13 points from when the question was last asked in 2019.

...

Recession worries come with increasingly negative views about the current and future state of the economy: 46% say the economy will get worse in the year ahead, the most in the 13-year history of the poll and 79% judge the economy as just fair or poor, the most since 2014.

Welcome back to the Obama Economy. Only worse this time, somehow.

...

Just 31% say now is a good time to invest in stocks, the lowest since 2016.

Jay Campbell, partner at Hart Research Associates, the Democratic pollster for the survey, points out that Biden's numbers on the coronavirus are particularly worrisome since he believes Biden's perceived ability to deal with the pandemic was a major reason for his election.

...

The survey clearly shows Americans noticing the supply and labor shortages that are plaguing businesses. Some 60% of the public say goods that were once easy to buy are in short supply, including food and groceries, paper products, and cleaning products.

Also, 66% appear to have noticed labor shortages, saying they have experienced stores closed on odd days or at strange hours when they normally would be open.

Meanwhile, network "news" shows are embargoing the polls.

The Joe Biden presidency is collapsing and the networks donít want you to know about it. Two just-released polls have found the Democrat at record lows. But between the evening newscasts on Tuesday and the morning shows on Wednesday, offered zero coverage of the very bad news for Biden.

Rasmussen has even more bad news for President Turnip Mash: clear majorities do not believe he's mentally competent to hold the job of president, nor that he's even making his own decisions.


Rasmussen Reports surveyed 1,000 likely voters and asked, "How confident are you that Joe Biden is physically and mentally up to the job of being President of the United States?"

A full 50 percent said they are "not at all confident," while another eight percent said "not very confident."

In fact, only 27 percent said they were "very confident" Biden was up to the job of being president, while 14 percent said "somewhat confident."

Basically, only 41 percent of voters believe Biden has what it takes mentally and physically to be president.

Rasmussen also asked, "Is Joe Biden doing the job of president, or are others making decisions behind the scenes?"

Only 38 percent believe Biden is making decisions, while a clear majority of 53 percent say others are making decisions for him.

6 "Loses hope?" Nah. 41% approval ain't in "lost hope" territory. It's in "extremely annoyed or angry" territory. As we get deeper into angry territory, the polls will fall. Once we get to "lost hope," his (or whoever the figurehead is at the moment) will be in the high 80s for approval because they'll stop polling altogether and just make up results.

17 They knew exactly what they were getting when they voted for him. But their TDS was stronger.

Exactly. Beat Trump was all they cared about, because he was threatening their grift, he was ruining everything by reversing their gains, and he was succeeding at pushing back. Not a lot, but some, and that would not be allowed.

You have to understand, after 8 years of Obama, President Hillary was going to seal the deal. They were THIS CLOSE ][ to locking it all in forever. Trump ruined it and he had to pay.

They all knew Biden was an idiot, a scumbag, a corrupt piece of grifting trash, a child molesting pervert, a sneering ahole, and losing what little mind he had. You should have seen my left wing buddies faces when I told them Biden was going to be Obama's VP choice. No way he'd pick that loser. They knew.

But any cost, any price, any method to beat Trump. He was the nominee, so he's their guy, to the wall, forever, no matter what.

I have a guess on this. A few weeks back, Ace posted another poll thread, but about the media. It said that 7% had a high degree of trust and that about another quarter or so had a moderate degree of trust in the press.

The 27% are a mixture of hardcore political hacks who want their bread to keep bettered (no more than 1%, if I had to guess) and the rest are those people who still trust the news for some reason. I suspect that the overlap on the "thinks Biden is very competent" and the "moderate to high degree of trust in the press" Venn Diagram is significant.

40 Has anyone taken a poll to see how party affiliation has shifted since the election? I'm assuming that a bunch of people who would have called themselves moderate Democrats last year now consider themselves Independents and some anti-Trump Independents might now call themselves Republicans. That would change the weight that is given to each group and thus the outcome of the polls.

I agree, strongly and completely. People don't know how to prepare for a massive wave of inflation; but stock prices will almost certainly soar, as money hides there, even as the economy collapses. People still think the stock market is related to the economy, it isn't. It's simply a measure of how much liquidity the treasury and the fed are pumping into the system, and the worse things get, the more they will pump.

86 The reasons are really different than the 70s, though. The Carter years were a combination of things, but a major pressure was the utter collapse of many regional industries which were forced to fire or close. Auto, Steel, Timber, etc.

116 I think a huge part of the problem is the number of people who know that the FNM spin for the Democrats but have no idea of how effective the FNM are at smothering the reporting of facts inconvenient to the commiecrats.

I think this because that was me before 2008. When I found some web news sources and especially AoSHQ and learned how coordinated the FNM are and how they all ignore inconvenient stories it was a shock to my psyche. Also my 81 year old dad still watches hours of local FNM. He knows their reporting on COVID is BS and that they are pumping for the commiecrats but he still thinks he is learning local news facts with all that viewing.

What he intimated without being forced to admit it out loud was that it was an intimidation tactic, a hand up to the Dems who were combatting real dissention from their constituents - just your everyday threatening of federal law enforcement on average Americans that his political benefactors wanted quieted immediately.

I'm pretty depressed about any upcoming Flu Season because it is pretty clear that the mRNA Clot Shots lead to immunodeficiency. This is Fauci's field of expertise in crushing the natural immune system. He learned a lot from AIDS, was disappointed at the relatively low yields and now wants the world to suffer immunodeficiencies so that people slowly die while transferring their wealth to Big Pharma in a pathetic attempt to survive a few more weeks.

269 Nickels are mostly copper. They only add enough to make it silver colored. Nickel is actually fairly toxic if ingested or inhaled.

Nickle is used for currency because of its oligodynamic effects against virus, bacteria and fungii.

Back when we weren't a nihilistic society that actually cared about the well begin of others and society as a whole, items that were handled a lot were deliberately made of metals that kill viruses and bacteria.

Brass door knobs are now made of steel and aluminum. The copper in brass is antimicrobial.

Silverware was made of silver. Stainless steel is not oligodynamic. Real silverware reduces the spread of disease. Stainless steel just cleans nicer. We don't care about health, we care about convenience.

He answered the truthfully (based on his considerable expertise and training at that point): You cannot, yet. The technology isn't there. And it wasn't, then.

But one of the guys at the interview was the man in charge of this particular operation and it was his baby, his big project and he did not respond well to this information.

Yes, that absolutely happens. I've gone blank in a coding interview before. When someone is struggling, I give them time to think, but if they're obviously panicking or take a long time with no progress, I'll start walking them through the thinking process, then I would start giving hints, then if that doesn't help, I'll even write parts of the code and invite them to fill in parts.

I had one place assure me multiple times that the interview would be with one person, not a group. I, of course, immediately assumed that meant it would be a group interview. Sure enough, as I was walked back to the interview, there was a smirk by the guy leading me back and "oh Person X is in court so sorry it's going to be a group interview instead." I smiled back and said "Yes. That's what I assumed. I read the same how to test an applicant articles as you do." That brought everyone up cold.

There was also the place that had me cool my heels for 45 minutes. I figured out where the camera was about 15 minutes in and then, when I finally had it, I took out some paper and wrote "I know you're watching me" and held it up. The guy I was supposed to be interviewing with came out like two minutes later and was laughing oh you figured it out. I shrugged and told him that the only reason I stayed is because I wanted to tell him directly that if a company starts with playing games like that, there is no way I would trust them and I walked out.

409 f they're obviously panicking or take a long time with no progress, I'll start walking them through the thinking process, then I would start giving hints, then if that doesn't help, I'll even write parts of the code and invite them to fill in parts."

Give them homework. Tell them to do this thing over the weekend. Then have an interview once they complete the work and then drill them on why they did it a certain way and could they have done things differently.

You may find some rock stars with that method.

410 > Now I feel 1000% worse. Bozos like that can get interviews?!? Whose dicks did they have to suck, and how big were they?

No dick sucking involved. If they have the degree and a little experience or a ton of experience in a relevant field, we give them a shot.

411 We had this one guy who otherwise checked out as a senior level, but when asked to do a simple coding exercise just went catatonic. it was spooky.

A couple of years ago, before the vid, we interviewed a guy who claimed to be "advanced" or "expert" in just about everything. I scribbled a dozen or so lines of C ("advanced") on the whiteboard and asked me to walk through it with me. He asked me what a couple of the functions I used did. Those functions? malloc() and free().

373 Not to brag, but I've never had a job interview where I didn't get the job. Haven't had a job in about 2 years, but thought I might like to get one for a while and place called back not wanted to schedule an interview, they asked when I could start. Pay was kind of lower than I wanted so I turned it down - nicely.

I've been approached five or six times since I've retired to take a job. All I had to do was say yes over the phone and I'd be hired.

I'd been working since I was 9 years old. I'm tired.

Maybe in another year or two.

>>I like reading Nolte at Breitbart, but I heard him a couple of days agoon Sirius, say Trumps statement on Powell's passing was despicable. That put me off a tad on Nolte.

Nolte is like Alex Marlowe, Conservative but likes smelling his own farts.

They also think that Trumps grow on trees.

It took 30 f-ing years to get someone even remotely Romanesque and Trump is greater than Regan, IMO.

Not a programmer but even I have used those functions before in quick fix code (long time ago though). Yikes!

418 Latest YouGov poll? Congressional approval/disapproval...15/64

Posted by: tj Strong at October 21, 2021 08:57 PM (uAI4S)

419 41% approval, who would have thought so many of the dead were dull enough to approve of the daddy of Hunter Biden, that saint.

420 OK so you go get your two shots, then have a doctors appointment for a seasonal hay fever allergy, and since you have a stuffy nose you have to stay in the parking lot and talk to the doctor about your hay fever because even though you got that vaccine it may be COVID.
You tell the Doc, "So those two shots basically were worthless." he says, "No they work." and you say, "BUT I'm the one standing in the parking lot with hay fever."

421 Of course Biden isn't making any decisions. He can't remember anything from day to day. Mark Belling of WISN 1130 radio made a great point about Biden few days ago. The man keeps telling his Amtrak buddy story so many times even though he's been called out about how his friend "Ang" couldn't have talked to him about his million mile Airforce2 record etc... He's been lying about that so long, he just keeps repeating it over and over. he CAN'T REMEMBER TO STOP TELLING THE SAME LIE! Now if this clown president can't even remember to STOP REPEATING a lie he's been called out on several times and been reminded by his staff not to talk about it, WHAT THE HELL ELSE ISN'T HE REMEMBERING?! He can't even remember to shit in the morning, let alone remember any major current events. He can't even remember his briefing before he gets in front of a camera, yet he's running the show?!?
That's why Turnip mash Brain's poll numbers keep cratering, even the normies and his own "supporters" are seeing this and internalizing it even if they don't actually put 2 and 2 together. They see the signs and the slide in Turnip Joe.
