Joe Biden was dodging reporters for months, refusing to do a press conference.
Finally, his office arranged one, but it did not seem to impress anyone.
He relied on pre-written notes and “talking points.” Frequently, he lost his train of thought. He made outrageous statements that even made the media gasp out loud.
And some suspect he had prearranged who he would call on, suggesting he knew their questions in advance.
America is now weighing in on his performance.
From Rasmussen Reports:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll, Sponsored by SLANTED from Sharyl Attkisson, for Friday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 31% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 43% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -12.
After Biden’s first press conference, his approval is dropping. Rasmussen’s daily tracking has it at 48%, with his disapproval at 51%.
It seems he’s continuing to sink in the eyes of Americans.
Even worse, though who strongly disapprove outweigh those who strongly approve of him. That gives him an index rating that has only dropped since early in his term.
We shouldn’t be surprised that these numbers. Biden’s press conference was a disaster. Even with the media tossing “softball” questions (as Trump called them) Biden underperformed.
This conference comes after growing questions over whether or not Biden is even in charge. In recent days, we’ve learned about leaked phone calls with progressives and reports that Biden frequently consults with Obama.
When we take that into account when looking at his approval, it seems Americans are increasingly distrusting Biden. And it has only been two months since he took office!
It doesn’t appear that Biden has what it takes to convince Americans he knows what he’s doing.
Do you think Biden will be able to turn this around? Or will his approval continue to plummet?
- Rasmussen’s approval rating of Biden continues to decline, now at 48%.
- Fifty-one percent of voters disapprove of his leadership, meaning he’s underwater.
- This comes after his first, disappointing, press conference.
