#SharterJoe has recovered slightly since he signed the Big Pork spending bill from the -30 he was at, but he's still in the crapper.

This link shows a number of data points apart from the Rasmussen daily approval rating, which is below.

I still wish those who voted for these kinds of spending bills had to have some skin in the game.

I’d love to see people have to show at least a single dollar paid into federal taxes to be able to vote. Just $1.00.

Seems like everyone should be on board with that, but you’d never get it to pass because a lot of folks who would have to show that would lose thousands in federal benefits.

I do think a lot of them would be willing to give up their voting rights for it though. That is, until they realized they could no longer vote themselves more money from the federal coffers.

Couple of different poll results at the link, one of which (Trafalgar) is reported to be biased against Biden and the other to be more Biden-friendly.

The thread running through all of this is the number of those polled who are passionate about their beliefs and opinions, especially for their disapproval of #SharterJoe.

Dems still favor their creaky cretin in the WH, but 31% disapprove or strongly disapprove of him.

I hadn't heard of this Marist poll until today.

The results of this poll are interesting, especially when you see that leftist PBS and leftist NPR are sponsors of it.

1,400 adults surveyed, 1,310 registered voters, margin of error 4.1% for the registered voters subset (which seems high for most polls). 

Quote
President Joe Biden’s approval rating sank to a record low in the latest Marist Poll amid a nationwide surge in COVID-19 cases.

The poll shows that just 41% of Americans hold a positive view of Biden’s performance as president, compared to 56% with a negative opinion.

17% of Americans strongly approve of Biden.
24% approve of Biden.
11% disapprove of Biden.
44% strongly disapprove of Biden.
3% are unsure of Biden.
The poll shows a strong partisan split on Biden’s performance among Democrats and Republicans, while independents are more mixed.

88% of Democrats strongly approve or approve of Biden.
95% of Republicans disapprove or strongly disapprove of Biden.
29% of independents strongly approve or approve of Biden, 66% strongly disapprove or disapprove of Biden.
A previous poll conducted in the first week of December showed Biden with 42% approving and 55% disapproving.

The Hill notes that in the last few weeks of December, COVID-19 rates surged as news broke of a new variant, Omicron, as inflation continued to cause prices to rise across the country.

Marist Poll surveyed 1,400 adults in the U.S. from December 11 to 13, 2021, with a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points.

The "Worse Than Jimmy Carter" Measure

Yep. #SharterJoe is there, according to Nick Arama, author of this article. When CNN acknowledges the dismal numbers, you know it's more than even they can ignore:

Quote
We’ve been covering how Joe Biden’s approval ratings have completely cratered, particularly when it comes to his handling of the economy. Earlier today we noted how his ratings have taken another hit, especially among independents.

Now, Biden has officially hit perhaps one of the worst measures that you can hit — that’s the “Worse than Jimmy Carter” measure. Historically, Carter has always represented the lowest of the low when you’re talking about the economy because of the horrible inflation he faced at the time and his failure to do anything effective to address it. He also made things worse with his “malaise speech” — a speech where he said there was a crisis in confidence.

A new CNN poll is finding that Biden’s numbers are now worse than Carter’s at the same time. When even CNN is noting it, you know how bad it is.

Quote
In the latest CNN/SSRS poll, Biden comes in with a 44% approval rating to 55% disapproval rating among registered voters on his economic performance. This makes for a -9 point net approval rating. The average of all polls taken in December is quite similar with Biden at -13 points on the economy.

To put that in perspective, the average president at this point in the last 44 years (since we have been polling on the topic) had a net economic approval rating of +5 points. That means Biden’s is 18 points worse than the average.

By Comparison:

Quote
Carter’s economic net approval rating of -8 points in an early January 1978 CBS News/New York Times poll was the lowest around this point in a presidency before Biden’s -13 points. The economy, and particularly inflation, was listed as the nation’s top problem in a late October 1977 Gallup poll.

Jimmy Carter lost badly in 1980 as a result.

As we previously noted, the recent ABC/Ipsos poll found that only 28 percent of Americans approved of Biden’s handling of inflation, while 69 percent disapproved. Wholesale prices in November also rose at the quickest pace on record, increasing 9.6 percent over the past 12 months, when it was estimated to be at 9.2 percent. That’s the biggest annual PPI gain on record. Even Democratic pollsters were warning Democrats they needed to quickly concentrate on kitchen table issues or they could face their doom as a party and not just in the midterms.

Meanwhile, in the effort to go full-blown Jimmy Carter 2.0, Joe Biden did a redux of the “malaise speech” with his fear porn COVID speech where he warned America about a “winter of severe illness and death” because of the unvaccinated, continuing to be divisive and antagonistic.

Now, if he’s going to fully follow through on following Carter, he has to end up being a one-termer. But what makes him even worse, even beyond the numbers, is that he doesn’t seem to care that his policies hurt people, he’s just always right — in his mind — no matter what. At least Carter seemed to care. Now, I suppose one might think that once he’s hit Carter level, he could only go up from there. But given Biden’s ability to always go lower, I don’t think I can bet on that.

What's really bad is that CNN is trying to warn the dems and they are absolutely not going to believe it.  They think any criticism of ANY dem is simply dem bashing and must be hidden from their view.

They are going down on a sinking ship and are refusing to not only NOT patch the holes in the boat, but aren't even acknowledging there is water coming in.

Reminds me of that meme with the cartoon dog sitting in the room that's on fire while proclaiming "this is all just fine."

Well, I'd say it is "just fine." Let's watch it burn. Let it burn down to the foundation and when the ashes are done smoldering, the Democrats can redefine themselves - or not.

Meanwhile, their destruction of this country stops and we can go on fixing what they've already destroyed.

Poll: Joe Biden’s Job Approval Underwater in 45 States, Close in California and Rhode Island
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/12/22/poll-joe-bidens-job-approval-underwater-45-states-close-california-rhode-island/

Quote
President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.’s job approval numbers are underwater in 45 states and close to underwater in two overwhelmingly blue states, according to CIVIQS’s rolling job approval average.

More people disapprove of Biden’s job performance than approve in 45 states, according to the CIVIQS poll, which has covered the president’s job approval on a rolling basis since his inauguration. That leaves only five states where more approve than disapprove.

However, two of those five states that are overwhelmingly solid blue states — California and Rhode Island — showed the president’s approval numbers close to flipping, with only a two-point margin in each. Both states showed Biden at 46 percent job approval, with 44 percent disapproval, and both showed ten percent “neither approve nor disapprove.”



California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont are the states that approve of Joe Biden. Delaware, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin are more likely to disapprove.

The #SharterJoe nosedive continues - this poll from CNBC, which, of course, is Leftist Territory.

The narrative is shifting and maybe, just maybe, the legacy media isn't so willing to cover #SharterJoe's ass so much any more. Maybe they ran out of TP....

  • President Joe Biden’s overall disapproval rating reached a new high in December as more voters signaled their unhappiness with his handling of the economy and the Covid pandemic.
  • A 55% majority of survey respondents also signaled disapproval of his leadership during the pandemic, an area in which he previously excelled.
  • Results from a CNBC/Change Research poll show 60% of respondents said they disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy as he nears the conclusion of his first year in office.

It's been more than a month since a post was added to this thread, and I've deliciously been watching the slide in #SharterJoe's poll numbers.

This time, however, we've crossed a new threshold and we should take note:

Quote
He's Fallen and He Can't Get Up: Joe Biden Poll Average Slumps to Under 40 for the First Time

Presidentish Joe Biden, who just had his Build Back Bolshevik agenda declared “dead” by a senator from his own Democrat party, has just hit an all-time polling low.

That West Virginia thorn in Biden’s side, Joe Manchin, could just as well have used the same word to describe the alleged president’s standing with the American people.

For the first time — and barely a year after he was sworn into office — the RCP polling average shows Biden below the crucial 40% threshold of support.

An averaged 39.8% of adult Americans, registered voters, and likely voters give the near-octogenarian a passing grade.

C’mon, man! Biden is, you know, the thing with voters. Corn Pop still loves him, but that’s about it.

What might be most terrifying to the White House — run by those overly-ambitious progressives that constantly put lie to “Moderate Joe” — is the spread between Biden’s approve and disapprove numbers.

It’s nearly 15 points, with the “Disapproves” at a jaw-dropping 54.4%.

Sorry to bug you with so many numbers but this is important.

Biden’s disapproval figure is in “lose by a landslide” territory, and there are only about 5% of voters left who don’t have a strong opinion about Biden one way or the other.

That means his public perception — his narrative as a successful or unsuccessful president, to use the more modern word — is largely set.

Good luck establishing a new narrative once another one is already in place. Doing that would require a big win, somewhere, with someone or something, to turn things around.

Biden’s legislative agenda is dead. His attempt to bust the filibuster is, too, and that means that unlike Westley in The Princess Bride, Biden’s progressive agenda isn’t just “mostly dead.”

It’s doorknob dead. Coffin-nail dead. Completely dead.

Democrat politicians are already snubbing the president, a rude fate usually reserved for second-term lame ducks in the heat of the inevitable second-term scandal.

Beta O’Rourke doesn’t want Biden coming to Texas. Stacey Abrams, The Real Governor of Georgia™ and full-time publicity hound, had a “prior engagement” when Biden came a-calling. Two leading Pennsylvania Dems — Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman and Attorney General Josh Shapiro — also somehow had their dance cards filled when Biden visited to tout his infrastructure law.

You know, the one that doesn’t build much (any?) actual infrastructure.

Just when Biden needs support on Capitol Hill to turn things around, do you know what he did?

Biden, kind of out of the blue, came out in support of letting Capitol Hill staffers unionize.

As you’ve seen from one campaign after another, rarely does even the most pro-union Dem support letting their own people unionize.

But that’s been Presidentish Biden for more than a year now: He’s got the Merde Touch. Everything he touches turns to… you know… but like a three-year-old in a candy store, he just can’t keep his fingers to himself.

#SharterJoe's approval rating dipped below 40% of late, and then he muddled his way through the State of the Union address which wasn't anything more than sticking to his leftist guns.

So now, the NPR/PBS/Marist/Leftist poll comes up showing a 8 point bump post-SOTU.

Or does it?

Ed Morrissey's analysis questions the poll's methodology, which we should do for ANY poll from ANY source.

Quote
Is this a true State of the Union bounce, a rally effect in the Ukraine crisis — or a statistical burp? Joe Biden got an eight-point increase in overall support in the latest NPR/PBS poll conducted by Marist after Biden’s State of the Union address. He made gains on several issues, but none more dramatic than on the conflict between Ukraine and Russia:

Quote
Following a State of the Union address which underscored President Joe Biden’s commitment to promoting democracy across the world, the president enjoys a bounce in his handling of the crisis in Ukraine. His standing among the American people has also improved on the issues of the economy and the coronavirus pandemic. While Biden’s bounce is predominantly among his Democratic base, he also enjoys moderate gains among independents. Of note, rare, bipartisan consensus exists on the issue of sanctions levied against Russia. Most Americans, regardless of party, support these sanctions, and nearly seven in ten favor them even if it means higher energy prices domestically.

There is some reason to suspect that this result is somewhat unreliable, but let’s take a look at its face value first. Biden hasn’t bounced all the way back, but he appeared to make up considerable ground. The prior NPR/PBS series had Biden’s overall approval at 40/55; today’s poll puts him within the margin of error at 47/50. That would be his best job approval rating since a mid-January Fox News poll put him at 47/52.

The Ukraine crisis appears to be driving most of that change, even though — again — the numbers aren’t great. It also doesn’t appear to be lifting Biden’s image as a world leader, at least not yet:

Quote
A majority of Americans (52%) approve of how President Biden is handling the situation in Ukraine, up from 34% last week. 44% disapprove, down from 50% last time. Only 4% are unsure, down from 16%. A plurality of Americans (46%) says Biden’s approach to the conflict in Ukraine is on the mark. 43% say he is being too cautious, and only 6% think he is being too aggressive. …

45% of Americans think Biden’s decisions as president have strengthened the United States’ position on the world stage while a majority (51%) say he has weakened it.

However, Biden’s rating also rose on other issues. Approval on pandemic management went up to 55% (+8) and his rating on the economy rose eight points to 45% too. However, 53% of respondents still disapprove of Biden’s performance on the economy, so it’s still a mixed bag — as well as being only one poll so far showing a bounce.

NPR thinks it might be a rally effect more than a SOTU bounce:

Quote
Biden appears to be benefiting from a rally-around-the-Ukrainian-flag moment. A whopping 83% of respondents said they support the economic sanctions the U.S. and allies have leveled against Russia. That includes eight-in-10 Republicans.

More than two-thirds (69%) said they would still support the sanctions even if they result in higher energy prices. That includes four-in-five Democrats, three-quarters of independents and almost six-in-10 of Republicans.

It’s worth noting too that the polling sample is D+6 (33/27/38), within reason if still a bit friendly to Biden. That may matter when it comes to overall job approval, the bounce of which may have entirely come from rallying Biden’s base. Democrats’ job approval rating for Biden is 90/9, while Republicans is almost the exact opposite at 10/89. The most telling demo here is among independents, which rated Biden’s job performance at 39/58 — a very wide gap that somehow disappears in the overall number of 47/51 among RVs.

It’s quite unusual to see such a wide gap among independents not be reflected in the overall number. That seems especially curious when (a) the two parties almost entirely cancel each other out, and (b) independents make up a significantly larger plurality than either party (38%). It’s very clear that Biden’s bounce isn’t coming among the unaffiliated:

Economy: 38/58
Pandemic: 49/50
Ukraine crisis: 48/50
World leadership: 40/56

From these numbers, it appears that Marist used some sort of calculation that discounted independents while boosting the impact of Democrats. Pollsters use modeling algorithms in every survey to attempt to properly form a predictive model based on the data, of course. However, this appears way off the mark — especially in a political environment as hostile to Biden and Democrats over the past several months. If we gauge Biden’s standing from the independents, there doesn’t appear to have been much bounce at all. If there’s a rally effect here, it might just reflect an NPR/PBS/Marist rally.

We’ll see what subsequent polling series tell us. For now, this one looks outlier-ish, and potentially an artifact of wishful thinking.

Luckily the SOTU address was so shabby and forgettable that he's back to 2-out-of-10 'approval' if the question is asked cold out the blue.

The video may have been scrubbed by now, but the images of #SharterJoe shuffling from Air Force 1 (or Marine 1 - whichever) last night to his limo were NOT complimentary of Joe. He was being aided and assisted by Jill (I refuse to call her "Dr. Jill" because she's an academic pinhead) and if he felt as bad as it looked, he was due for a 10 hour nap -- right in the middle of serious issues that demand the attention of the president.

But #SharterJoe can't be bothered. He's heading off for his nap.  :whatever:

It's hard to watch.  He can't walk, he can't speak, and it's obvious he's not in charge.  Maybe one day we'll know who is pulling the strings.  It definitely ain't Kammie, she's as incompetent as he is.

His approval rating should be in the negative numbers. He doesn't care he has had 50 years of lining his pockets from being corrupt and now he can die after having the top job.
Biden sucks and harris swallows.

Poll: Joe Biden’s Approval Rating Hits 34 Percent
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/03/23/poll-joe-bidens-approval-rating-hits-34-percent/

Quote
The most recent national poll from Grinnell College showed that President Joe Biden’s approval rating was only at 34 percent.

The poll found that only 34 percent of adults in the United States approve of Biden’s performance as president, while a majority, 52 percent, disapprove. There were 14 percent that said they were not sure how they felt about his job performance.

Biden’s approval was down further when compared to the October poll that asked the same questions. The October poll found that only 37 percent approved of his performance as president, while half of the respondents disapproved.

When asked about the coronavirus, still only 47 percent approved of the way Biden handled the pandemic, while 44 percent disapproved and nine percent were not sure. In the October poll, 46 percent approved and 44 percent disapproved.

Regarding the economy, only 31 percent said they approved of Biden’s handling of it, while a large majority, 57 percent, said they disapproved. There was 13 percent who said they were not sure.

Low approval ratings do not occur in the first term. They are more likely to occur towards the end of the second term.

This complete lack of respect and dignity from #SharterJoe and his administration might explain a little bit as to why his approval ratings are in the crapper:

Quote
Breaking with traditional norms of decency and respect for the Supreme Court, the White House and President Joe Biden refused to send well wishes to [Supreme Court Justice Clarence] Thomas until prompted by a reporter.

Thank God Justice Thomas is out of the hospital and recovering at home.

A pox on #SharterJoe and his shithead chief of staff Ron Klain.  :mad:

SharterJoe's "approval" rating has cratered even further than what was last reported. I won't bother to post the numbers, because I think we all know what has happened. Joe is a narcissistic lazy turd who has no clue what his administration is doing, much less what he himself is doing. But I think SharterJoe has sunk to a new milestone, and he woke up long enough to express how he ain't happy about that:

Joe Biden Is Really Upset That He's Now More Unpopular Than Donald Trump

Quote
Most of the time, you can look at Washington D.C. and say that, while some of the things they’re doing there are not pretty, they don’t often have an immediate and direct impact on our daily lives. Usually, the greatest impact to our daily lives comes from local and, at most, state government. All politics is local, after all.

But for months now, the national economic situation (along with the deteriorating border and social climate) has been brought to the forefront of almost every family’s worries. It’s been a news cycle that Joe Biden and his administration cannot escape from.

It’s sort of like how COVID-19 was for Donald Trump. Normally, Trump was capable of changing the news cycle on a dime, simply by tweeting something out. But COVID was a global pandemic, and he couldn’t escape it. It was, in large part, why he lost in 2020.

But Trump had always suffered a low approval rating because of the tweeting and the constant attacks from the press. It was almost impossible for him to catch a positive headline. The same cannot be said of Biden, who has had a relatively good relationship with the press thus far.

So, while Trump’s low approval was virtually always guaranteed, Biden had to earn his. And boy, has he.

That low approval in every category has reportedly irritated him to no end.

Quote
In crisis after crisis, the White House has found itself either limited or helpless in its efforts to combat the forces pummeling them. Morale inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is plummeting amid growing fears that the parallels to Jimmy Carter, another first-term Democrat plagued by soaring prices and a foreign policy morass, will stick.

[…]

The president has expressed exasperation that his poll numbers have sunk below those of Donald Trump, whom Biden routinely refers to in private as “the worst president” in history and an existential threat to the nation’s democracy.

Far more prone to salty language behind the scenes than popularly known, Biden also recently erupted over being kept out of the loop about the direness of the baby formula shortage that has gripped parts of the country, according to a White House staffer and a Democrat with knowledge of the conversation. He voiced his frustration in a series of phone calls to allies, his complaints triggered by heart-wrenching cable news coverage of young mothers crying in fear that they could not feed their children.

Biden is somehow, miraculously, the most powerful man in the world and yet a bystander to all the ills of his country. He was kept out of the loop on the formula issue? Then fire the people who kept you out of the loop. It’s not difficult to do. You are the chief executive of the federal government. All that bureaucracy falls under your fiefdom. Fire people and make an example of the lazy bureaucrats who sat on their hands during a crisis that the rest of America saw coming a mile away.

But it’s not just the baby formula crisis. Inflation has been a constant thorn in the side of the Biden administration, which has tried to make it sound like he can fix it while also saying there are so many factors beyond his control. But, there are some things that he was in control of — like signing the very pandemic aid bill that led to the bulk of the inflation issues we’re now seeing. He can also fire people like Janet Yellen, who are openly saying “Nope, didn’t see it coming!”

The energy crisis? It’s not a difficult fix. You can cut a lot of the red tape that dissuades oil and gas companies from producing on land leases, and you can stop your silent war on offshore drilling. You don’t have to be beholden to the ideological extremists in your party who insist that we will not have any air to breathe in the next 15 minutes due to carbon emissions.

Biden wants to fix the problems the country is facing, but he can’t. He is enslaved by, and a member of, the far-left extremists who insist on fundamentally changing America to match their unrealistic vision of utopia.

What’s worse, his team’s plan to win back favor in the eyes of Americans addresses approximately zero of the problems Americans are facing. Families are gathered around the kitchen table, trying to decide the best use of their dwindling resources and Biden wants to stand before them and decry the (possible) end of Roe v. Wade and the entirely made-up right to abortion it created.

The Biden administration has spent their entire time in power just reacting to news story after news story, and Americans haven’t seen any sort of relief from the barrage of crisis after crisis. So, sure, go ahead and rant about a Republican tax plan no one has heard of while black Americans continue to walk away from the Democrats. I’m sure that’s how you’ll win them back. You don’t need to figure out how to stop inflation from out-pacing wage growth. That’s just silly.

I've watched SharterJoe's poll numbers tumble into the basement and, to be honest, I've been gleeful at the result  :yahoo: (Yes, I want SharterJoe to fail miserably. It's the only way leftists will learn that Joe's been a dangling turd for nigh on 50 years and there's no "bringing him back." He's gone. Mentally, physically, and ethically.)

 Here's an analysis, with links embedded at the link for corroboration:

Quote
Things are not going well for Joe Biden. A super majority doesn’t want Biden to run again and even Democratic operatives like David Axelrod are saying that things look “out of control and he’s not in command.” It looks that way when you need such specific cheat sheets that tell you when to thank people and even when to sit. It’s no wonder that 85 percent of Americans think that the country is on the wrong track, with 78 percent of Democrats thinking that too. All of that doesn’t look good for Biden and spells doom for the Democrats in the midterms.

It’s no surprise then Biden’s numbers have tumbled yet again, with his polling average hitting another all-time low at just 38 percent approval with 57.5 disapproval, according to Real Clear Politics.

But I don’t think it’s done yet. Those numbers are likely to drop still further as Biden and his team continue to be tone-deaf to Americans, seeking to cast blame on anyone but themselves for all their bad policies and not making any effort to change the things they have been doing wrong.

Biden was asked if this was because of the war in Ukraine — as he claimed– how long were we going to have to put up with it? Biden answered, “As long as it takes.”

Then his NEC Director (and former BlackRock executive) Brian Deese delivered a response that people are still talking about when asked about Americans who say they can’t afford to continue to pay $4.85 a gallon.

“This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm,” Deese said. In other words, shut up and deal with it, peasants. Our priority isn’t you, it’s our agenda.

Then, Biden was at it again today, not making any substantive changes, just yelling at companies who run gas stations to lower their prices because he says so.

“My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril,” Biden declared. “Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now,” he demanded.

We’re not in a war (even if Biden wants to take us there and is spending all our money as if we were). Gas prices have been going up ever since Biden took office, due in part to his attacks on the oil and gas industry. But just as Biden tried to blame oil companies for price gouging, rather than looking at his actions, he’s now going after the people running the gas stations.

Blaming Americans for the problems you create is not a good look, Joe. But he just keeps digging that hole deeper.
