Democrats In Media Bailing On Biden

His only true love.

Democrat media types can’t get over why Joe Biden is so unpopular. So they make up reasons that make his policies popular, just not him. They also blame the American people. Gee, and they wonder why they themselves are so unpopular.

FNC: “President Biden’s approval ratings have nosedived in the past few months following inflation and supply chain crises, but the liberal media have offered different suggestions and excuses that have largely put the blame on the American people.

Multiple pundits and guests on left-leaning CNN and MSNBC have suggested that one reason why Biden isn’t faring well in the polls is because Americans aren’t engaged enough in politics. CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’ unpacked that idea on Sunday.

Host Brian Stelter asked one of his guests, writer and photographer Chris Arnade, ‘what’s going on’ with Biden’s agenda and approval ratings, suggested the numbers don’t add up. Arnade answered by comparing Americans’ interest in politics to those who are only interested in football when the Super Bowl comes around.”

“I mean, I think the way we talk about politics and the way most people talk about politics – I mean, it’s entirely different,” Arnade said. “We’re like, you know, we’re like – it’s like the NFL and most people treat politics like they’ll tune in to the Super Bowl once every few years and that’s about it. That’s how they view politics as something, you know, they’re not a player in it, they’re just a watcher. They support teams. They support a side. But they don’t feel like – it’s a distance thing that really that doesn’t – doesn’t – they don’t have a say in that much. And so, how politics affects them is very experiential.”

“It’s not about, you know, connecting what’s going on to policy and connecting policy to what’s going on,” he continued. “It’s just not something people do. That’s what we do, but that’s not how people perceive things. And quite honestly, you know, as I’ve written, what people see right now and I’ve been, as you said, walking across America. I go into cities and I walk 20 miles across America and just spend time hanging out talking to people.” That is just idiotic. The man ought to stick to his camera.

“I think they’re seeing gas prices go up,” Robert Gibbs said. “I think they’re seeing their turkey dinners on Thanksgiving being more expensive. People wanted to feel a sense of normalcy going into this holiday season … Unfortunately that hasn’t materialized. I think that while a lot of the president’s agenda is popular, I don’t think the American people know much about it…The process of this has overwhelmed the of specifics of the substance.” Very bad spin from a former chief spin doctor.

Magdi Semrau, a leftist columnist, said, “I wrote about the disconnect between Biden’s approval rating–which appears to be slumping–& approval for his agenda–which remains high. This isn’t just a problem for Democrats. It’s a problem for democracy. The media has a role to play. Biden’s policies are more popular than he is. For the first time in the modern era, the link between president and agenda is broken.” Ah, another media lickspittle who wants the press to be the DNC media office. Orwell much?
