Gallup: Biden Falls to Lowest Approval Yet

Just one point shy of Trump's approval -- and Trump had the media making up Russiagate lies about him. Brandon's been supported and lied for by the media.

During his first year in office, an average of 48.9% of Americans approved of the job President Joe Biden was doing. Biden's job approval ratings started relatively strong at 57%, but by September had plunged to 43%. A new Gallup poll finds 40% of U.S. adults approving of the job he is doing, his lowest to date.

Among post-World War II presidents elected to their first term, only Donald Trump had a lower first-year average rating, at 38.4%. Bill Clinton's first-year average was similar to Biden's, but all other first-year presidents averaged 57% or better.

...

After a messy U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in late August, marred by a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport that killed 13 U.S. troops, his approval fell further and has yet to show signs of improvement. In the latest survey, 40% of Americans approve and 56% disapprove of the job he is doing, as the U.S. is plagued by the highest inflation in four decades and another surge of COVID-19 cases, this time fueled by the omicron variant of the coronavirus.

It is in the context of this disaster -- and Biden's last loyal constituency, the press, complaining that they are no longer content to cover up for him while he hides in Delaware -- that Brandon will attempt to "reset" his failed presidency with a press conference in which he will change literally nothing about his disastrous policies.

He'll just rely on his, get this, "empathy and compassion" to win over the public.

Or at least the press.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that "for a long time, we saw that Biden no matter what was given the benefit of the doubt from the American people, who would say, 'He's a good guy. He's trying his best.' "

But Afghanistan, she said, proved to be "his first major hit."

"That was the moment where Biden himself looked callous, uncaring, incompetent, and failed in a key moment of leadership," McDaniel said. "The rest has been attrition by covid and inflation and other things. Right now most Americans are frustrated you can't get a test, you can't get anything you think the Biden administration should have been reasonably prepared for."

'He seems weak'

"Old." "Incoherent." "Lazy." "Sleepy Joe."

These were among the first descriptions that came to mind for 10 suburban women swing voters who gathered late last year for a virtual focus group conducted by Democratic pollster Celinda Lake on behalf of several liberal organizations. The results were reviewed by The Post on the condition of anonymity to protect the identity of the participants and the groups.

Asked to elaborate, the women in the focus group said it seemed like "he's trying," but that Biden shuffles and frequently seems to lose his train of thought. Biden is "wishy-washy" in standing up to his own party, one woman said, explaining that she thought the president seemed more like an actor in a "supporting role."

"He doesn't convey being strong to me," she said. "He seems weak."

Others offered suggestions: "If he needs a nap beforehand, take that, because we need him to be there for us."

In an attempt to overcome such criticism, the administration has begun to change its messaging strategy, allowing Biden to more frequently speak directly to Americans who are struggling, a top official said. Aides believe Biden's capacity for empathy comes through in such appearances.

Are you kidding me? He comes across as what he is, an old, senile, angry and bitter man who has inappropriate outbursts when challenged or inconvenienced in any way.

The press hid his dementia from us. They're continuing to hide it from us.

...

Biden's tone has changed as well. In two high-profile speeches this month -- one to mark the first anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection and the other to push for voting rights legislation -- the president took a more forceful approach, directly challenging Trump and Republicans.

And oh yeah, what a triumph that was. A speech so rancid that even the rancid Dick Durbin had to concede that "maybe it went a bit too far."


The more aggressive posture heartened Democrats who think Biden spent his first year too bogged down in the minutiae of legislating and insufficiently focused on leadership. Some allies griped that Biden -- a senator of nearly four decades -- was behaving more like the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman he once was than the president. Several times, Biden traveled to Capitol Hill to push one of his legislative goals, only to get thwarted by members of his own party.

The Washington Post continues babbling -- they really think that Biden's "tone" in his disastrous Georgia speech was helpful.

It pleased hardcore, bitter-ender leftwing partisans -- like the Washington Post "journalists" spinning for Brandon here.

It alienated key allies (like Manchin and Sinema) and further convinced Americans that Biden was out-of-touch, focused only on his own inside-baseball partisan obsessions, and filled with bitter senile distemper.

Unbelievable:


White House officials and other Democrats also argue that Biden inherited an epic mess from his predecessor and deserves credit for a range of victories, from helping to vaccinate nearly 75 percent of Americans against the coronavirus with at lease one dose and reopening the majority of schools to passing both a $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan and a bipartisan infrastructure bill.

"It's important to take stock of where we've come," said Jen O'Malley Dillon, a deputy White House chief of staff. "This isn't a time to, you know, spike the football; there's a lot of work ahead. But there is also just a really strong story to be told about what's happened in this administration over the last year and the president's focus on covid and on the economy and passing legislation to help the American people directly in their lives."

While Brandon continues obsessing over his plan to federalize voting laws, the public has shifted hard to preferring Republicans on the most important issues:

NEW POLITICO/Morning Consult Poll

On the issues that matter most, Republicans hold commanding leads.

R's in Congress are favored over Dems to handle:


The economy (47%-34%)
Jobs (45%-35%)
Immigration (45%-37%)
National Security (49%-32%)

Per that poll, Biden is at 40% approval, 56% disapproval.


The Gallup and Politico polls have brought the RCP average to new lows:

Tom Bevan
@TomBevanRCP

New polls from Gallup and Politico/Morning Consult have driven Biden's job approval to a new low of 40.9% in the RCP Average this morning.

On the same day 4 years ago, Trump's approval was 40.1% and headed upward from his all-time low of 37.0% on December 13. If Biden doesn't improve his standing, Trump's approval rating will eclipse Biden's by the end of January.

52 I'm sticking to my prediction that Biden is gone before the mid-terms. They can't keep covering for him and his administration's incompetence. I suspect that there is a lot of pressure to clean house, as evidence by the sudden push for a "reset" on issues like COVID. But firing his admin wholesale is impossible. The only way you get that big of a change is to have Harris take over and put "her" people into those positions.

If Bidens approval is at 40% in the polls, lets adjust for bias and estimate that the real number is probably closer to 25%. If Trumps approval was also 40% lets do the same and estimate that it probably was 55% after allowing for media bias.

86 We are always told that Biden got 80 million votes, and President Trump got 75 million votes. So, realistically, how many people were "prevented" from voting due to repressed voting? It makes no sense. And if 150 million people voted, and could figure out the complex voting laws, maybe the people who couldn't figure out how to vote are really not mentally capable of choosing a candidate to vote for?

I've always heard this spoken about in generalities, but they've never trotted out such a person to be interviewed. What - they don't have any ID, or any proof of residency that was rejected by a polling place?

141 The Kabul botching probably broke Biden's self-confidence. It seems like one of the few things he actually pushed for against most of his advisors' preferences. And it was a disaster, which is not unexpected because Biden is dumb, incompetent, and generally everything he touches becomes worse for it.

He's basically given up on making his own decisions now (which given the advance senility and on-going stupidity is a good idea in concept) and is doing whatever the staffers/Jill want. But that means the consensus/average view of the 20 dumbest libs on twitter is exactly what Biden will be doing at any given moment.

Yeah, this is a valid point too. This cold is making me gobble MP4's black jelly beans so I have been dipping out more than usual. Something I was thinking about when I woke up:

We assume that a lot of people, if the media actually honestly reported what was going on would reject the commies wholesale. That may be a miscalculation.

Another example: College. The Russian History class I was going over the early days of Stalinism (think Kulaks, wreckers and hoarders.) The prof was talking about the persecution of the Kulaks who were demonized simply because they owned some land and maybe a cow or two. One of the students (an American) pipped up and said 'But... they were Kulaks!' as if that excused it.

I suspect that there is a lot of pressure to clean house, as evidence by the sudden push for a "reset" on issues like COVID. But firing his admin wholesale is impossible.

Since the 90s the establishment has been all in on the fantasy that US airpower can support indigenous local troops trained by special forces, eliminating the need for the US to commit ground troops. It doesn't work in reality, but it looks really good when written up in various defense journals and allows the State Department, intel agencies, and DoD to offer politicos a supposed way to implement their desired foreign policy on the cheap.

240 Carter didn't really broker anything. Sadat was the macher in that situation, he made the key and epochal decision for a separate peace, bowing to sense and military reality. Carter didn't screw it up, but the US was just the benign "guarantor" of it all - and the financier. A cashflow that continues to this day.

Carter's best moves were supporting natural gas and airline deregulation, the former against his own party's geographic and constituent interest (large part of Teddy's challenge run in 1980).

The closest analogy is a cabinet reshuffle in a parliamentary system. Doesn't work very well in presidential systems as no one really knows who are actually making the destructive policies so the only way to get them to stop is removal of the big cheese.

Yes:

||Biden Will Push For Unconstitutional Police Reforms To Be Forced Onto States In Speech On Wednesday

I say it will be an illegal executive order because as far as I know; the Congress has never voted on a power to allow a president to interfere in state law enforcement laws, rules, or regulations. And I don't believe the Congress even has the power to do so. The federal government would have to ask the states for permission to interfere in state law enforcement in the form of an amendment to the US Constitution. The federal government was given only 18 enumerated powers in the Constitution. That means that for every power it seeks to give itself, if it is not enumerated (listed) in the Constitution, then they have to ask for permission from the states.||

They try to portray him simultaneously as America's kindly old grandfather and a total hard-ass. He's the avuncular action star who will comfort you in your hour of need and karate-chop Putin in the neck at the same time.

For one thing, that's incongruous and self-contradictory. But neither characterization is remotely close to Joe Biden. He's not tough and virile. He's old and weak. He's not kindly and comforting. He's old and mean.

Because if they move forward that will be the goal: force DeSantis to hand over Trump and thus kill two campaigns with one stone.

Or her source, who had to be someone at the court, assuming there is a source. Or the justices themselves; I don't put it past them to issue a false press release about the collegiality of the court. They regularly lie about it in public (balls, strikes, umpires, no democrat or republican judges, etc.).

There are spot shortages all over. The other day I was in Giant and not one milk in the refrigerated section. None. All the gallons and half gallons - gone. There was some soy and almond, but that was it. None.

I was in Walmart Sunday. No pasta except for 4 lonely boxes of lasagna noodles. No chicken. About 1/3 the usual selection of beef.

I was in Aldi on Sunday. I got the last two packages of chicken breasts. Then the chicken cooler was empty. So was the beef.

So, what's your hypothesis? There are no shortages and I am making this up? That all the people telling similar stories are making it up? All the pictures of empty shelves are photoshop?

They didn't "create" anything, least of all microbrews. The hipsters like to think they invented good beer in America, but that is not the case. Prohibition killed off the beer industry, and it took about 100 years to start recovery.

Possibly, but if Gorsuch would not go along with Roberts' request that he wear a mask for camaraderie, why would he go along with a mendacious statement? I mean, putting his name to a false statement (that all of his colleagues know to be false) is not something a Supreme Court Justice would do lightly.


Moreover, if you read the transcript of the NPR piece in which Totenberg reported this, she was very much trying to paint a picture of a Supreme Court discordant at historical levels. It being NPR, naturally the radical conservatives are to blame.


That they would issue a joint statement to signal comity on its face evidences that her thesis is false. In other words, even a mendacious "we're all friends here" disputes that civility has truly broken down, as Totenberg posited.

Could be. But it seems every single element of the story has been denied, not just the fact that there was some tiff between Gorsuch and Sotomayor. From the jump: there was no order for the justices to wear masks for Gorsuch to disregard. John Roberts says that. Everything else from there trails off into nothingness.

But Totenberg is a Leftist on NPR, and the mask and COVID are markers for the Left, and hey if we can paint a Trump appointee as a racist who wants to kill elderly, immunocompromised women with COVID just out of spite, well, you can pretty much disregard any decision he played a part in, right? I mean, had he not kept her in a cage due to his mask defiance, she might have been there in person and been able to use her wise Latinx magic to sway the vote to the correct decision.

Excellent advice. .22 LR ranges from about ten cents to twenty cents per round right now and reasonably priced revolvers and semi automatics are out there for a couple of hundred bucks cheaper than centerfire.

Apparently these companies pay the grocery stores to sell them. That's why they stay stocked despite there obviously being no customer interest.

397 No, Sadat made the move. He and the Israelis had been secretly talking for a while. The decision, and will to go ahead with it, for a bilateral peace with Israel was Sadat's alone, and didn't depend on any guarantees from the US, which only came much later.

It's not a criticism of Carter to simply stick with facts. Carter didn't screw it up - though one could very persuasively argue that his administration's MidEast-related diplomatic approach *prior* to Sadat's bombshell actually was a waste of time, even harmful (note: it was a common approach not new or unique to the Carter Admin. - "multilateral" or "comprehensive" approach that clearly had no chance given the realities of Syria and the PLO).

A recent MidEast accomplishment actually involved much more American initiative - though it would be controversial to point out how it was only possible due to earlier American action that changed the realities of the eastern Arab world. Gotta mind one's myths and bigotries and bumper-sticker frameworks around here.

If I had my druthers, I want Angry Joe to come out swinging. At Americans, at the trees, at the air. He'll probably be pumped so full of his drug cocktail that he'll make it through his -- and the "media's" -- script. But I don't think 1) anybody cares what he says and 2) it won't fix what's hurting Americans and their wallets.

We used to ship at least the produce from the "nation's breadbasket" the San Juaquin valley.

Obama killed the valley by shutting off the water and now all our fruits and veggies come from Mexico and regions south. It's obviously a strategic vulnerability to not be growing our own food anymore, and I'm wondering how many of the shortages stem from it.

There needs to be an explicit provision in the next government explicitly prohibiting the Vindmans and Bloombergs from ever holding positions of authority Ann power again. Or you're right back to where you started.

I imagined this was what was running through George III's head when John Adams came to make a diplomatic call on him after the war was over: Basically, you can't have nice things like a democracy because the fcuking sociopaths rise to the top of every organization on earth. The only way to have any chance is to have a hereditary monarchy, that occasionally gets refreshed by the right of conquest. Personally, everything is broken from the jump and any system that doesn't recognize God given rights, freedom with responsibility, and the classic virtues is going to fail quicker, than those that do. Now call me a fundamentalist and a God botherer. Go!

There is a new one that just opened up - has nice indoor facilities but is about $500+/year. Nice facility, but pricey - especially when I factor in replacing the ammo I'll shoot.

What he needs to do is freeze all government contractors 1st.

Then, he needs a RIF-process that allows for only X number of folks across all government functions where X number is the number of active duty and reserve veterans, both disabled and not plus 5% (since some departments are heavier than others for veterans)...while this isn't perfect, it would guarantee most of the very recent zealot hires would be auto-gone and most of the poor performing libs are also gone b/c the "preference of vets" means no "regular" folks can keep jobs if there aren't enough spots after this group...

But you MUST not let them back in the back door as contractors - those folks get all of the employee protections of feds at higher cost to the gov, and once you have a contract, it never goes. So, you have to declare LOTS of fed gov functions gov employee only functions...

516 Sadat and Begin would have found their way to a deal without American participation. The key thing was Egypt, the by-far most important "front line state", saying "it's over". The details were unimportant.

Sadat's strategic shift completely changed the political-military realities. Hussein still was too terrified to move (but had his own longstanding secret relationship and understandings with Israel), Assad of course remained hostile and with no options, the Pals of course became even more dysfunctional and self-destructive, Gulfies continued their checkbook/UN rostrum hostility, Iraq postured.

Simple as usual to put it in logical terms. Would there have been, eventually, an Egypt-Israel formal deal, or de facto equivalent, without US participation? Yes, of course. Not a criticism of Carter.
