A new Washington Post poll is the latest to show President Joe Biden with dismal approval ratings, even after passing the bipartisan infrastructure bill last week.
The poll — by an outlet that Breitbart’s John Nolte pointed out is “one of the most biased and disreputable pollsters in the country, a pollster willing to work any kind of dark magic to give Democrats a boost” — showed Biden’s approval at 38% with registered voters, while 57% disapproved, an overall rating of -19 points.
Even worse, only 19% of those polled strongly approved of Biden, while 48% strongly disapproved.
Biden’s fall has come about as he totally botched the military withdrawal from Afghanistan and left hundreds of Americans behind, spent so many trillions of dollars (and restricted oil production at the same time) that inflation is now skyrocketing, and tried to force 80 million Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine by threatening to take away their jobs.
Support slips even among Dems
Looking deeper into the poll, Biden has even lost some support among Democrats, dropping from 90% down to 80%. Of those, only 44% strongly approved of Biden, not even a majority of his own party.
“No doubt some sane Democrats are looking at what Biden’s done to this country and are worried,” Nolte opined.
Independents have also reportedly seen a huge shift from a majority approving of Biden to only 35% now. Fifty-eight percent of independents disapprove of him.
In Nolte’s view, one of the things hurting Biden the most right now is the stunning lack of empathy that the administration has displayed as they try to downplay the impact of Biden’s policies.
The White House has tried to claim that spiking energy prices are “good for the environment” and made fun of supply chain problems by sarcastically referring to “the tragedy of the treadmill that’s delayed.”
“It’s one thing for a president to face multiple crises. It’s quite another for that administration to ridicule people’s concerns over those crises, especially when those crises directly affect their quality of life,” Nolte wrote for Breitbart.
Defenders may try to argue that former President Donald Trump also had low approval ratings at points in his term, but Nolte points out that the media spent “billions” to attack Trump, while they are throwing all of that same weight and money behind Biden.
The American people are rapidly losing faith in the media along with Biden, and it’s about time that happened.
