The poll numbers for President Joe Biden are continuing to plummet by the day, and Judge Jeanine Pirro thinks that she knows exactly why Americans are seeing right through him.
“We’ve all known the guy is not with the program,” Pirro said on Fox News. We’ve known it for a long time. The numbers have been clear as far as we were concerned. But now it appears that it’s not just us. The voters know it. The voters know it. The polling shows it.”
“You know, in the beginning, it’s like America was like, you know, let’s give the guy a chance,” she added. “We elected him. Let’s give him a chance. You know, we’re not going to criticize him. But now it’s like we’re not even in two years. And they’re like, this guy’s a loser. This guy is incompetent. 57% say the president is distracted. 51% say he’s incompetent. 60% say he’s not focused. We’ve got inflation going through the roof. And they want to blame the media.”
This comes after The Hill reported that a Reuters-Ipsos poll that was released on Tuesday put Biden’s approval rating at a measly 36%, the lowest point to date in this poll. This was a 6 percentage drop from last week, and on top of that, Biden’s approval rating among Democrats fell from 76 percent to 72 percent during that same time period.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
Voters have particularly taken issue with how Biden has handled the economy and inflation. However, when confronted with these negative poll results, the White House has claimed that Biden’s agenda is helping the American people, and that officials simply need to get better at communicating that.
This also comes after a Gallup Poll that was also released on Tuesday found that a whopping 83% of Americans think the U.S. has gone off the rails. Just 16% of Americans said that they were satisfied with where the country was going, while the additional 1% said they had no opinion.
Needless to say, this is bad news for Democrats going into the midterm elections later this year.
“With less than six months to go before the midterm elections, the public’s mood is sour, with few Americans satisfied with the direction of the country and approving of Congress, making the Democratic congressional majority extremely vulnerable,” Gallup said.
“Biden’s approval rating is particularly weak among independents and is nowhere near the high level required (typically above 60%) for a president to stave off significant midterm losses in Congress,” Gallup added. “The likelihood of a dramatic economic turnaround before November’s congressional elections appears slim, which puts pressure on Democrats to persuade voters to keep them in power despite the nation’s current struggles.”
No wonder so many Americans have realized that Biden is a “loser.”
