President Biden’s job approval rating has sunk to a new low in the latest Quinnipiac poll, with just 33 percent of Americans saying they approve of his performance.
According to results released Wednesday, 53 percent of Americans disapprove of the way the President is handling his job, putting him a staggering 20 percentage points underwater.
The 33 percent overall job approval rating for Biden marks a 3-point drop from November.
75 percent of Democrats still approve of their Commander-in-Chief, but even that marks a 12-point drop from the previously released poll.
If you wondered what the presidential version of the Titanic looks like, this is it:
In picking apart these numbers, it’s difficult to ascertain which is the most embarrassing news for President Biden’s approval rating.
Is it that they disapprove of his handling of the economy (34-57%)? That they disapprove of his foreign policy efforts (35-54%)? Or that they disapprove of Biden’s handling of the one true reason that Americans thought he might be able to help – the COVID pandemic – (39-55%)?
There’s also the fact that President Biden now has a lower approval rating amongst Hispanics than he does whites, according to Quinnipiac.
It is such a stunning reversal that Giancarlo Sopo, a public relations strategist, described his being -23 points in that voting bloc as “a seismic shift in American politics.”
What must truly stick in Biden’s craw, however, is the fact that his approval rating is worse at this point in his presidency than at a similar point in the Trump presidency.
Not that former President Donald Trump’s were all that spectacular either but, according to Newsweek, “a Quinnipiac survey released in January 2018 gave Trump an approval rating of 36 percent.”
Biden has the benefit of a totally compliant media actively covering for him, while Trump faced constant, wall-to-wall opposition from “journalists.”
That said, being deemed worse by the American people than a man you essentially accused of being a racist, a misogynist, incompetent, and responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths has to be pretty embarrassing.
Biden is being pilloried by the American people because he’s failing on all fronts – whether in addressing the humanitarian crisis at the border or bungling the withdrawal in Afghanistan.
But what’s truly causing his numbers to drop is that he’s failing on fronts that hurt Americans every single day. They know it, they feel it.
President Biden promised to “shut down the virus” and has failed to do so despite a series of multiple vaccinations being forced on the American people. More people have died from COVID in 2021 than they did in 2020.
Americans are feeling Biden’s failures every time they go out to eat or try to buy groceries at the store.
Just yesterday, reports indicate that inflation has risen to 7% over the past year, the fastest pace in nearly 40 years.
The administration’s supply chain woes have continued for months.
Despite the President declaring the supply chain crisis solved, claiming that “packages are moving, goods are being delivered, shelves are not empty,” things have become so bad that the phrase “Bare Shelves Biden” has been trending on social media.
And it’s affecting people all across the nation.
According to one report, the situation at grocery stores is a “far cry from the good old days … empty shelves, empty produce, empty freezers.”
That’s because of the empty head currently occupying the White House.
Yes, President Biden’s failures are not only dragging down his approval rating, they’re dragging down the American people from sea to shining sea.
The only real question is – How could his approval rating possibly be as high as 33%?
