President Joe Biden was riding high when he first took office. With the mainstream media completely behind him, it seemed he couldn’t fail — until reality set it.
Biden’s approval rating has collapsed six points in the latest Gallup poll, Breitbart reported. The president’s job approval now hovers at just 50% — his lowest since taking office.
The poll was taken between July 6 and July 21 reflecting the very latest sentiment for Biden. His numbers broke starkly along party lines, with 90% of Democrats and 48% of independents in favor of the job he was doing. Only 12% of Republicans were happy with Biden’s White House.
During his first months in office, Biden was enjoying high approval numbers for his handling of COVID-19. Of course, he was riding the fumes of former President Donald Trump’s coronavirus vaccine rollout and the waning death and infection rates because of it.
However, the new Delta variant has increased cases and deaths again, though not in the same significant numbers as worst months during the pandemic. It remains to be seen whether the new round of lockdowns coming will cause his approval to talk further, whether they’re the president’s fault or not.
Biden also has to contend with steep inflation, though he tried to downplay it in his latest CNN town hall, according to Fox News. However, it’s difficult to hide the situation from the American people who are paying more at the pumps, grocery stores, and just about everywhere else.
Meanwhile, the Democratic Party is also playing politics with the huge infrastructure deal that’s supposed to be a bipartisan effort. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding it hostage while trying to ram through her $3.5 trillion bill full of redistributionist handouts through an underhanded reconciliation process.
The media have always favored Democrats, and Biden is enjoying all of the perks that come with having the leftist media on his side. However, things are getting worse and Americans are beginning to notice.
