Every once in a while, CNN lets loose with a little truth.
We’re seeing more and more of it when it comes to how bad Joe Biden’s approval is and how much in the basement his polls are because it’s just too hard to explain them away.
CNN’s polling data chief, Harry Enten, broke down four of the most recent polls that came out this week for anchor John Berman including the Quinnipiac poll that had Biden at his worst number ever — 33 percent approval. Enten also looked at the Hart Public Opinion Strategies poll, Ipsos Reuters, and CBS News/YouGov. But as Enten noted, three of the four polls were the worst numbers ever for Biden, showing that even though the polls had some variability, they were all in the basement when it came to Biden at this point.
With the midterms fast approaching, Joe Biden's approval rating is showing that Democrats are in a lot of trouble.
"This is a really, really, really bad number."

Berman then asked how Joe Biden compared to President Donald Trump at the same point in his term. The news wasn’t good for Biden. According to Enten, Trump had an average job approval rating of 42 percent at this point in his presidency — that’s despite being under constant media attack so that skews the number. But meanwhile, Joe Biden who has had largely positive coverage from the liberal media — and certainly nothing compared to the attacks made against Trump — is still at a lower number — with 41 percent. As Enten notes, this is the lowest for anyone elected, who didn’t come up unelected through the vice presidency. “This is a really, really, really bad number,” Enten declares, as Berman looks like he wants to swallow his face at how bad it is for Biden.
Biden has dropped in the polls and his numbers have gotten worse since August of last year, after the debacle of his withdrawal from Afghanistan. If it’s possible, his efforts to spin away the polls seem to have only made things worse and angered people more because they show that he doesn’t care about problems like inflation, he just cares about being able to deflect the blame away from himself, such as by claiming inflation and gas prices are due to “Putin’s Price Hike.” Americans aren’t dumb and they know how long the high costs have been hitting them in the wallets, so they know that Biden is lying and trying to insult their intelligence. Americans look at Joe Biden and their eyes are clear about what he is: a confused old man who doesn’t know what he’s doing and who shouldn’t be in the office. And they’re going to deliver a message to the Democrats in November for foisting him on us all.
