¡Aye, Dios Mio! FJB Hits 60% Disapproval With Lantinexexexes

¡Ayúdemi! Joe Biden se ha caido y no puede levantarse!


Three-fifths of US Hispanics dislike the job President Biden is doing, according to a new survey out this week -- yet another sign of widespread discontent as Americans grapple with the ongoing border crisis, baby formula shortage and skyrocketing inflation.

The Quinnipiac University survey published Wednesday found that just 26% of Hispanics approve of Biden's performance, while 60% disapprove and 13% said they did not know or had no opinion.

The survey interviewed 1,586 adults, including 132 self-reported Hispanics. The margin of error among the group was 8.5 percentage points.

Despite the small sample, the poll result marks a reversal from the fall of 2020, when Biden won Hispanic voters by a 2-to-1 margin over Donald Trump.

In addition, a similar survey done by Quinnipiac at this time last year found that 55% of Hispanic voters approved of Biden while only 29% disapproved.

The poll shows Democrats losing the midterms, of course:

@guypbenson

Biden overall approval 35/57, GOP +4 on generic ballot in this Q-poll

There was bad news for Biden in last week's polling, too: 75% of voters say we're on the wrong track.

Politico published a memo from Democrat pollster Doug Sosnik which argues that the last possible chance for Biden to change perceptions in time for the November elections is the beginning of summer-- and obviously we're right on the cusp of that.


His full memo is here.

He allows for one possible chance for Democrats to save themselves: a massive surge in interest in abortion rights.

For the past six months, over 70% of the public thinks that the country is headed in the wrong direction.

This sense of pessimism in the country has dragged Biden's job approval down to 39%, a significant drop since last summer. The President's low job approval has been driven by a lack of confidence in his handling of a variety of economic and social issues.

If past elections are any indicator, we are heading into the final stage of the election period when voters are beginning to lock in on their views of the state of the country and their expectations for the future. It is during this period - and not the final days of an election - that the public settles in how they are going to vote.

The President's job approval during this stage is the best proxy to determine current levels of support for the party in power. And that window is closing rapidly. In the last four midterm elections, by June the public had made up its mind about the leadership in Washington and how they were going to vote in November. According to Gallup, Trump's 39% job approval in early February 2018, Obama's 41% approval in June 2014 and 45% approval in June 2010, and Bush's 38% approval in March 2006 all matched their job approval on Election Day.

As might be expected based on the incumbents' anemic numbers, the President's party suffered significant defeats and lost control of at least one branch of Congress in all four of those midterm elections.

That is why the stakes are so high as we enter this final period critical for the Democrats to seize the pending Court decision on Roe vs Wade as a way to alter the trajectory of the election. If they are not successful in reframing the terms of debate for the midterm elections around the pending decision by the Supreme Court on Roe, we will look back at Biden and the Democrats' failures last summer and early fall as the reasons for their electoral defeats this November.

67 Surge of interest in Abortion rights? Something fascinating is h appening with regard to the pro-abortion protests at the Supreme Court Justices houses; no one is showing up. They're able to get about 7 - 10 people per night, but that's a far cry from what the organizers wanted. It's obvious that they have paid a few people to try to become the core of protests which they hoped would become much bigger - but they have never sparked any broad public interest, and no one is showing up except the handful of people collecting a paycheck for doing it. (and they went cheap and didn't hire enough of them)

I think this is indicative of the fact that there is actually very little interest or "outrage" in the potential overturing of Roe v. Wade - it's all hype supported by the usual twitter loudmouths.

It might get them out to vote, instead of staying home on Election Day.

The Dems have a huge enthusiasm problem. A voter who's unhappy about the Dems still might not necessarily be willing to vote for a Republican candidate. That voter might have just decided to stay home, instead. The Dems are hoping that they can use abortion to convince the would-be stay at homes to go out and vote.

100 Banking the political fortunes of a political party on the ability to kill a baby?

I'm not sure that's a winning strategy with middle America.

Though, if Democrats want to remain in power in NY, CA, WA and OR, probably a great strategy.

121 Hilarity in Portland - a couple of furious parents posted on Portland Reddit that the Portland Parks children's summer swim lesson reservations window opened online at 12:30, the parents logged in at 12:30 and five seconds, and all the classes were already full. How could this be?

Somebody noted an official statement:

Early Registration: As part of our Parks Levy commitment, we are working to improve access for underserved communities, which include but are not limited to people of color, seniors, teens, households experiencing poverty, immigrants and refugees, and people living with disabilities. PP&R provides information to local community organizations who share early registration opportunities with their community members. This may result in some activities being full prior to general registration.

I.e. all the swim slots went to children with intersectionality points, and none were available to the kids with no intersectionality points.

You mean that when these parents voted for "diversity", "inclusion" and "equity", they didn't realize that meant that their kids would now be at the back of the line for any government-sponsored activity?

179 The next two years are going to be tricky. The Biden junta knows that Slow Joe can't win another election unless something dramatic happens.

The typical way in which failing autocrats get a hostile domestic population to support them is by finding an outside enemy to blame for all the country's problems. And if the domestic population is really hostile, then the junta will try to provoke some kind of war with the outside enemy, to shift the domestic population's attention away from the leader's failures, and onto a common enemy.

223 The abortion paragraph is wishful thinking. The population has already chosen sides. This decision means nothing. Does it maybe erode some loss of unmarried college women in urban blue hellholes? Maybe. But it just as much encourages pro-life voters who can thank a republican president, and a republican senate that confirmed, a pro-repeal Roe majority. They've gotten lip service for 50 years. They final were paid off. They are more likely to say thank you. My guess if the abortion question swings anyway, and I don't really think it does, it swings a tad to the GOP.

The dems are royally fucked. You tried to take their young children. Now your FDA is trying to kill babies. Excellent work.

"He made a racist comment," La Russa said. "That's all I'm going to say." La Russa referring to Donaldson calling Tim Anderson "Jackie" in the first inning of the Yankees' 7-5 win. Tim Anderson was asked about the incident following the game.

"Basically, he was trying to call me Jackie Robinson," Anderson said. "He was like "'Hey, what's up Jackie?' I don't play like that. I don't really play at all. I wasn't really going to bother no body today, but he made the comment, and you know, it was disrespectful and I don't think it was called for. It was unnecessary."

"I kind of feel like today's Jackie Robinson," he said. "That's huge to say. But it's cool, man, because he changed the game, and I feel like I'm getting to a point to where I need to change the game."

Anderson drew the ire of the Kansas City Royals for his emphatic bat flip after hitting a fourth-inning home run off Royals starting pitcher Brad Keller on April 17.

Yes but the Biden junta knows they're not ever getting our votes.

It's their own voters they need to keep on the plantation, and blaming MAGA types for the baby formula shortage or the skyrocketing cost of gas or the border being flooded with illegals is not going to fly. Their voters know who is responsible for those problems, and it's Biden.

So they have to distract their attention from all the Biden-created problems, and a war with an "outside" enemy is the traditional way to do that.

If they are not successful in reframing the terms of debate for the midterm elections around the pending decision by the Supreme Court on Roe, we will look back at Biden and the Democrats' failures last summer and early fall as the reasons for their electoral defeats this November.

Fair point. But I think it is going to be a bit different. because any GOP who aren't fully on the DC is the problem bandwagon will face a primary fight of their life in 2024. Some senators aren't up of course. But some will be.

248 The typical way in which failing autocrats get a hostile domestic population to support them is by finding an outside enemy to blame for all the country's problems. And if the domestic population is really hostile, then the junta will try to provoke some kind of war with the outside enemy, to shift the domestic population's attention away from the leader's failures, and onto a common enemy.

They took Maripul but it took way too many men and too much time. I don't think they can get to Odessa now. And in doing so they lost territory they had up north. It comes down to the Donbas region. Which was under their operational control in some respect before the shooting ever started.

Putin needs a deal before his Siberian oil wells freeze up. He has Europe by the balls on nat gas. But every oil well that goes down does not come back up. Already oil production is declining. It's going nothing but down. And he will never get it back. He's losing money.

329 Putin's strategy to concentrate on attacking maternity wards, children and women first has backfired.

If only Putin and his stooge generals were smart enough to attack military targets first, they may not have lost the war.

Putin is an evil man, but the Ukraine campaign has not been designed to maximize civilian casualties.

A campaign designed to maximum civilian casualties would have involved mass indiscriminate artillery fire into Ukrainian cities, which is not a tactic the Russians are using. Civilian casualties would have been in the many tens of thousands of people, not thousands.

Mariupol has been leveled, but house-to-house streetfighting tends to do that.

I've been saying from the beginning that the China Lung Rot was likely released intentionally, in order to shut down the Hong Kong protests which were getting sporty at the time (the MFM was starting to speculate that those protests were serious enough that they could bring down the ChiCom junta). Releasing it in Wuhan was the ChiComs being clever, as releasing it in HK would have been obvious. Once the West started to overreact and freak out, the ChiComs just rolled with it and tried to take advantage of the opportunity. Which is why so much of their messaging was haphazard at first.

I disagree with the first part -- it was an accidental release because the Chinese are screwups and sold lab animals to wet markets for a few bucks. Proof is that China also was irrational and freaked out for a bit, locking up areas too. The only rational reaction was bribing the WHO to pretend it wasn't Chinese. They definitely did want it to spread everywhere too.

At-home pregnancy tests, which can be purchased in drug stores without a prescription, are 99% accurate in detecting hCG (chemical only found in pregnant women) about 10 days after conception.

There really isn't a good reason for any sexually active woman or girl in this country not to know she's pregnant fairly soon after the event. The tests cost just a few bucks (Walmart has a generic brand test that's less than $1), can be purchased at any drugstore, they can be done privately at home, and no doctor's prescription or office visit is required.

Dems trying to undercut the achievements of every successful individual by claiming that success was only possible because of the underlying system of social support and infrastructure?

And they were not totally incorrect in saying that well developed infrastructure and other systems do contribute to the conditions for success. Just not the welfare state they way they twist it.

Now that those conditions for success have been erased they seem to not have much to say about what a wonderful world of supports and regulations they have built for us all.
