I want to thank our left-leaning forum friends for their spirited defense of President Joe Biden.
However, to balance the discussion, I would like to offer some polling data that show a remarkable collapse of confidence in the present administration.
In the most recent USA Today/Suffolk University poll, Biden has an approval rating of just 37.8%.
Even worse, Vice President Kamala Harris' approval rating now stands at 27.8%, a full 10 points lower than our president.
By a 7:1 ratio, independent voters said that Biden is doing a worse job than expected.
In an earlier poll, 59% of respondents said they believed Biden would be unable to complete his first term and 38% believe him to be suffering from some form of impaired mental capacity.
If you go to "Election Betting Odds," you will see that only 15% of people believe President Biden will be reelected in 2024.
As troublesome as these polls might be for some readers, it is the relentlessly downward direction of the data that should be even more worrisome.
