Biden said to blame Americans for his low poll numbers

President Joe Biden’s popularity levels continue to get worse, with a Civiqs poll released this week putting his approval rating at just 34%.

Yet rather than taking a look at a his record, a new report suggests that Biden seem to blame his problems on the American people. 

Biden said to be “really twisted” over his lack of popularity

That was the interpretation offered by Townhall contributor Guy Benson in an article published on Tuesday. Benson cited an NBC News story in which Biden is said to be “rattled” by his declining poll numbers.

The author drew attention to a passage in which the president is said to resent Americans for not responding positively to his record.

“Biden has vented to aides about not getting credit from Americans or the news media for actions he believes have helped the country, particularly on the economy,” the piece stated.

“Unemployment rates have dropped to below 4 percent — pre-pandemic levels — but polling indicates most Americans believe the economy is in bad shape,” it continued.

The report went on to describe how “Biden grouses that Republicans aren’t getting their share of the blame for legislative gridlock in Congress, while he’s repeatedly faulted for not getting his agenda passed.”

Later, one anonymous White House insider is quoted as saying that the president is “really twisted” over the fact that his approval numbers are now lower than Donald Trump’s were at this point in his presidency.

For his part, Benson pointed out how “whining about unfairness and lack of credit is not a great look” for Biden to adopt. He added, “It shouldn’t be surprising that a populace getting hammered with inflation isn’t in much of a credit-giving mood on other economic factors.”

Gas prices predicted to break $6 this summer

If Biden is indeed upset that Americans are blaming him for their difficult economic circumstances, then the evidence suggests that his distress is only going to get worse.

Late last month, Fox Business pointed to a prediction from JPMorgan which said that the national average price for a gallon of regular gas could top $6 this summer.

The American Automobile Association states that the average price currently stands at $4.715, up from $3.041 a year ago.
