Morning Joe Makes Excuses for Biden’s Pitiful Polling Numbers

When Biden’s going will get robust, his hardest dead-enders within the liberal media get going.

Yesterday introduced the newest polling blow: Biden’s approval score has sunk to an abysmal 39% within the Harvard CAPS/Harris ballot. Professional tip: any ballot that has “Harvard” in its title is certainly not biased towards Biden!

And positive sufficient, the Morning Joe crew was on the market at present, doing its finest to ‘splain away Biden’s dwindling help.

First up was Jonathan Lemire, who in an beautiful little bit of understatement referred to as Biden’s ballot quantitys “not all that top.” Form of like Mario Mendoza’s batting common, Jonathan?

Subsequent was By no means-Trump Republican Elise Jordan, who claimed Biden’s unhealthy numbers are “slightly overhyped,” and that “actually, a lot of it’s situational.” Yeah: the “scenario” being that Biden is a weak President with a horrible file on all the things from the border, to Afghanistan, to inflation, to Covid.

Talking of unhealthy batting averages, up third was Joe Scarborough himself, suggesting inflation ain’t Biden’s fault:

“I do not care who the President of america is. It would not matter who the President of america was, we have been going to have inflationary pressures.”

Simply hold whistlin’ previous the graveyard, Morning Joe! Denying the depths of Biden’s political predicament is not going to assist him dig out of his gap.

Notice: As we have famous right here and right here, this is not the primary time Morning Joe has tried to place lipstick on Biden’s political pig. 

Morning Joe making excuses for Biden’s pitiful ballot numbers was sponsored partly by Casper.

JONATHAN LEMIRE: Clearly, Biden is saddled with slim margins within the Home and the Senate, which I feel is among the perception, like, hey, he is aiming too massive. He needs to be extra modest in what he tries to perform. 

We see his ballot numbers not all that top. However, administration officers say, look, he is truly completed fairly a bit on this first 12 months. Yeah, Construct Again Higher hasn’t occurred but, however they obtained the infrastructure invoice by means of, and the massive Covid reduction invoice. Two out of three, by way of huge items of laws. The place ought to he go proper now? Does he want a course correction, or ought to he plow straight forward?

ELISE JORDAN: You realize, I do suppose it is slightly overhyped: oh, Biden’s approval is thus far down. It is only a actually horrible time proper now. We’re going into 12 months three of a pandemic.

LEMIRE: Positive.

JORDAN: Persons are drained. Persons are simply sick of getting their lives upended. And, particularly for the month of January, did not actually really feel that there was an finish in sight. 

And so I feel, actually, a lot of it’s situational. I additionally suppose he overpromised and he hasn’t truly delivered on among the sweeping guarantees that he thought would occur, like Construct Again Higher. And so, break it down. Simply get by means of Congress what you may get by means of, and what’s palatable. Have one thing on the board relating to midterms.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Yeah. You realize, Willie, it is onerous to think about how issues could be going if we hadn’t had the delta surge, if we hadn’t had the omicron surge. Biden was sitting at 52%, 53%, 54%. And we are able to speak about payments, and laws, and all of the errors Democrats have made, and so they’ve made a number of errors, however you return and have a look at the numbers, they began falling with Afghanistan. However then delta. Then omicron. And inflation. 

You’ve got all of these items, that you’ve a virus that retains coming again as a result of folks will not get vaccinated, first. And secondly, you have got inflation. And I do not care who the President of america is, and, sure, you understand, you and I’ve talked about it, it would not make a number of sense to spend trillions and trillions of {dollars} whenever you’re in an inflationary scenario. 

Nonetheless, as Rattner at all times tells us, there’s $2 trillion sitting on the sidelines. Individuals have not been in a position to spend their cash for a pair years. It would not matter who the President of america was, we have been going to have inflationary pressures. And now, in fact, his problem is getting by means of that.

WILLIE GEIST: Yeah. The president, as Jonathan stated, handed two of the largest items of laws within the historical past of the nation. So, when you’re speaking a few failed first 12 months in workplace, that gives some context by way of what he was in a position to get finished and what he was in a position to get by means of.
