Biden Gets Rejected Big Time on Ukraine, SCOTUS, Economy – Opinion

Joe Biden’s recent efforts to try to improve his position with the American public on the economy aren’t helping him. They may actually be worse.

Biden has been claiming that he brought about the “fastest economic growth since 1984.” That just skipped right over the truth that people returning to work from a shutdown pandemic economy is not “growth” — and no thanks to Biden. He didn’t help his cause by releasing a rigged chart to make it look like the economy had grown more.

A new poll by ABC News/Ipsos found that no one liked the pitch.

Only one percent of Americans believe that it is “excellent.” Only 23 percent think it’s “good.” Meanwhile, 75 percent think the economy is “not so good/poor.” Sixty-nine percent of Americans disapprove of his handling of this key issue. So, if he thinks he’s buffaloing people, it’s not working. His numbers have been steadily declining.

Biden then stated that he will only be considering a black female candidate, and not all possible candidates. The poll showed a very negative reaction to the statement, with only 23% supporting it and 76% wanting him not to take into consideration all candidates.

Although the poll’s sample size was not large enough to break out results for Black people, only a little more than 1 in 4 nonwhite Americans (28%) wish for Biden to consider only Black women for the vacancy. Democrats are more supportive of Biden’s vow (46%) than Americans as a whole, but still, a majority of Democrats (54%) also prefer that Biden consider all possible nominees.

So, if Biden thought that was going to re-engage voters on his behalf, that doesn’t seem to have worked.

In terms of another big story in the news — Ukraine — Biden’s moves are not going over well either. On the issue of sending ground troops to Eastern Europe to discourage Russia’s actions against Ukraine, 32 percent of Americans “don’t know” enough to say, 38 percent oppose sending troops, and only 29 percent support it. It’s not an encouraging endorsement.

Even worse for him, he is 56 percent unhappy with his handling of Ukraine and Russia in general. So, if he’s trying to “wag the dog,” the dog is having none of it, too. It doesn’t help when the Ukrainian president has to tell him to calm down the hype about an invasion, and Biden reportedly takes the toughest sanctions against Russia off the table.

His disapproval numbers seem to be getting worse across the board – with them now in the 60s, including handling of gun violence (69 percent), crime (64 percent), immigration (64 percent), and the country’s economic recovery (56 percent).

I’m not sure what he could do at this point to get out of the killer numbers that just seem to keep getting worse and worse. Biden is Biden. He always finds a way to get lower. He wants to get more involved with American citizens. Do more of these things and you will see the numbers fall even further.
