GOP House leader says Biden’s bad poll numbers due to ‘irresponsible’ actions

While President Joe Biden has long struggled with waning popularity, the president’s political outlook grew even more bleak last week when a poll from Quinnipiac University found that his approval rating had dropped to just 33%.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) argued the survey is just more evidence that Biden is guilty of failing to deliver. 

“Irresponsible actions”

“It’s the wasteful, irresponsible spending that has led to higher prices and inflation,” the Washington Examiner quoted McCarthy as telling Fox News Sunday host Mike Emanuel.

“It’s the irresponsible actions of this president along the border that has led to an immigration interventional crisis,” the Republican lawmaker continued.

“It is the irresponsible policies of this administration that has led to dangerous streets, ineffective schools, that has got to stop. It’s got to be more than just to criticize them.”

McCarthy then went on to contend that the GOP will offer voters an alternative to the Biden administration’s policies in this year’s midterm elections.

“What Americans want, need, and deserve, is a clear, commonsense alternative, and that’s what’s happening with the House Republicans,” he insisted.

The California lawmaker insisted that he has “never seen our party more united,” stressing that Republicans “are not focused on individuals” but are instead “focused on the country first and the policies.”

“Democrats are worried”

“What we find in the Republicans is that we will have a very clear, commonsense alternative that will secure the border, make us energy independent, give it a fiscal policy to stop runaway inflation, to have our parents have a say in our kids’ education,” McCarthy said.

“I believe America is united when you look at the polls from independents, Democrats, and Republicans alike. They want a new direction.”

The Examiner noted that conservative analyst Jed Babbin recently agreed with McCarthy’s assessment. He was quoted as saying, “Even Democrats are worried now about the November midterm congressional elections.”

“They know that ‘improving their messaging’ isn’t going to change the price at the gas pump or the grocery checkout line,” Babbin added.
