If the White House appears to be running around in a panic that’s because they are. The USA Today/Suffolk polling shows a massive collapse in Joe Biden approval far below anything previously registered for President Trump.
According to the reports of polling outcome, overall approval for Biden is 41% with disapproval at 55%.
Additionally, Biden barely has 50% approval for his handling of the pandemic, but a mere 39% approve of his handling of the economy. THAT is a major issue what has the potential to infect the entire Democrat platform.
THAT is also why Nancy Pelosi is pushing the agenda so hard right now. They have lost the American public and the tsunami consequences are creating massive voter backlash.
According to USA today, “while he has held the backing of 87% of Democrats, only 32% of independents say he’s doing a good job,” again, that’s a major problem.
(USA Today) […] Half approved of his handling of the pandemic, 39% of his handling of the economy, 26% of his handling of the Afghan withdrawal.
“Today, President Biden’s overall approval has taken a turn for the worse due to his awful job performance rating on Afghanistan,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk Political Research Center. “His approval on immigration and the economy are also upside down. The only issue keeping him remotely in the game is his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, where he is barely at 50%.” (more)
Politically with these collapsing polling numbers it becomes much harder for the leftists to keep the pressure on their more centrist peers. When the president loses support, the party support for a failing administration starts to weaken. The party leadership can whip the representatives harder, but each lash draws less and less reaction.
As long as the American people keep dropping support for these failed policies; and there are real checkbook issues with inflation making it impossible for them to ignore; it becomes much harder for Biden to carry any political weight.
That problem has wide consequences as the COVID vaccination propaganda is also starting to blow up in their face. Keep in mind all of these issues are happening with a U.S. media that is largely still supporting and propping up the Biden administration. If MSM support starts to soften it will only make things exponentially worse.
