Congrats are in order for Joe Biden who finally achieved what every conservative knew he would. And he did it only halfway through his presidency. Brandon has singlehandedly turned his own part against him. Not just politicians mind you. We’re talking the whole kitten-kaboodle. Liberal voters throughout the land are regretting their decisions.
The numbers speak for themselves. El-Presidente has whittled his national approval rating to a toothpick at only 39%. This is among all adults in the U.S., conservative, liberal, or other.
Astoundingly, only 2 in 10 adults think Biden is leading us down the right path. Last month it was 3 in 10. Among his own party, only 33% still believe they elected the right guy. That figure was at 49% last month.
The economic welfare of everyday citizens is paramount to any presidency. But Biden’s failures don’t stop with the economy. Gun violence is an everyday occurrence. COVID-19 is popping back up. Frustrated parents can’t find any baby formula, and this paragraph could run on indefinitely.
Milan Ramsey, 29, a Democrat from Santa Monica, California, and a high school counselor, is at her wit’s end. “I don’t know how much worse it can get,” she said. She and her husband had no choice but to move in with her parents so they could better afford to raise their infant child.
Ramsey won’t lay the entire economic slump on Biden, but she does blame him for back-seating the healthcare and climate change issues that she and every other Democrat voter expected him to dive right into.
He hasn’t delivered on any of his promises. I feel like the stimulus checks came out and that was the last win of his administration,” she said. “I think he’s tired – and I don’t blame him, I’d be tired too at his age with the career he’s had.”
Less than 1 in 10 Republican voters approve of anything Biden has or hasn’t done. This figure hasn’t wavered at all from last month or the month prior.
Gerry Toranzo, a Republican 46-year-old nurse from Chicago, puts the full blame on Biden for having to watch every cent. “His policies are destroying the economy,” he said. Stopping the Keystone XL fuel pipeline was a fatal mistake in Toranzo’s eyes. It’s caused “a vicious cycle of price increases.”
Manuel Morales, 58, from Moline, Illinois, thinks the Ukraine war and the pandemic had more to do with killing the economy than Biden’s policies. But, he’s now having a hard look at Biden’s American Rescue Plan as one of the possible leading culprits.
Morales agrees that the money helped a lot of people out, but then he said, “people did not want to go back to work.”
Charles Penn from Huntington, Indiana, has mixed emotions. “The Democrats, in the long run, have screwed up things by pushing for higher wages, like going from $7 an hour to $15 an hour. The other side of it is that if you had Republicans, they’d cut my social security,” he said.
No matter how you slice it, if Biden’s performance has been this poor at the halfway point, it’s becoming more doubtful that he’ll have a chance to finish his term.
