Republicans In Full Panic Mode As Biden’s Approval Rating Nears 60% In New Poll

After only six months in office, President Joe Biden has an approval rating that is flirting with 60%, and Americans are optimistic about the future, according to a new CBS News poll.

The poll, which was released Sunday, shows that 58% of those surveyed say they approve of the job Biden is doing.

 

Only two other presidents have managed higher approval ratings during their first six months in office: Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan.

Other metrics in the poll are also bad news for Republicans, who have been trying since Biden took office to slag him and suggest that he doesn’t know what he’s doing or that his policies are socialist.

Americans are also optimistic when it comes to how they feel about the future, with 52% saying they’re hopeful and 40% indicating they’re scared.

The main issue Biden was hired to deal with — the pandemic — is also a point of strength for the president. Fully 64% say the administration is doing well with battling COVID-19.

As if all that wasn’t bad enough for the GOP, consider the numbers when it comes to the Biden administration’s infrastructure proposals, which are favored by 59% of those surveyed.

And then there’s the matter of personality, where Biden’s predecessor always scored poorly, with 61% reporting they like the way the president handles himself personally.

Americans like and trust Joe Biden. That’s the worst possible news for Republicans because they have no platform of their own and are still under the spell of Donald Trump, who cares only about himself and is taking the GOP down with him.

Conservatives Have An Online Hissy Fit After Their Favorite Poll Shows Biden’s Approval At Record High

Conservatives love to cite polls from the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports as evidence that their candidates are more popular than other polls indicate, considering it to be the “gold standard” of public opinion polls. Hell, even failed, one-term former President Donald Trump was fond of praising Rasmussen as “proof” that he was going to win a second term in office.

So it comes as a very bitter pill that Rasmussen has just released a new poll showing President Joe Biden’s approval rating at an all-time high in their survey, standing at 54% approval and 43% disapproval.

In comparison, at this point in his presidency, Trump’s approval rating was a pathetic 39%, which means he was badly underwater even though he was still supposedly in the “honeymoon” period of his administration.

It should also be noted that Trump left office (after inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol that left five people dead), with an approval rating of 34%, according to Gallup. The average of his presidency was 41%, a record low, and a full four points lower than any other president when departing the White House.

The Rasmussen poll didn’t sit well with those who voted for Trump twice, so they had a hissy fit on Twitter, accusing the polling firm of being biased, denying reality, and making other outrageous claims, much like their orange god. Take a look:

Ah, the tears of right-wing snowflakes are so damn sweet.

Ron DeSantis’ Political Future Looks More Uncertain Than Ever

There was a time not so long ago when Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis was seen by many in the GOP as a rising star who might even have a chance at one day becoming president of the United States.

But those days are long gone. DeSantis has repeatedly mishandled the COVID pandemic in his state, causing his support among senior citizens (a key voting block in the Sunshine State) to wane right as he’s gearing up to seek a second term in office next year.

And now more bad news has arrived for DeSantis in the form of a poll from St. Pete Polls which shows him running dead even with the likely Democratic nominee, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried.

According to the poll — which was commissioned by Florida Politics — DeSantis looks vulnerable:

“The poll found the incumbent Republican Governor and the potential Democratic challenger both taking about 45% of the vote. A close look shows DeSantis winning 45.2% to Fried’s 44.6%, a difference far smaller than the survey’s 2.2% margin of error.

“The poll finds DeSantis holding 76% Republican support, while Fried has less than 72% among Democrats, showing the incumbent performing better with his own base. But 46% of independents favor Fried, compared to 42% who prefer DeSantis.”

In a closely divided state like Florida, independent voters are the key to winning, and they favor Fried, which is very bad news for DeSantis, who has also been an ardent and vocal supporter of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump. Trump is not seen positively in much of the country, especially among independent voters or the elderly. That raises a larger question: With Trump now calling Florida his home and holed up at Mar-a-Lago, could DeSantis’ connections to the former president be politically detrimental to him as he seeks reelection?

If Fried does indeed announce a run for governor and become the Democratic nominee, she would be a formidable opponent for DeSantis, whose popularity is falling.

Even though the 2022 election is still over a year and a half away, polls are clearly showing that DeSantis can be beaten. And given his own propensity for making the wrong decision no matter the issue, his popularity will likely continue to decrease.

Florida may be on the verge of turning blue. That’s very bad news for the entire Republican Party.

MAGA Faithful Have An Online Meltdown After A Poll Shows Americans Consider Trump A Failure

It seems that everyone except Donald Trump’s deranged supporters know that the current president is a massive failure who didn’t win a second term, was impeached, and is leaving the White House in disgrace, the most disliked American head of state since Richard Nixon.

Proof of that arrived courtesy of a USA Today/Suffolk University poll which shows that 50 percent of those surveyed say Donald Trump is indeed a failure:

“Fifty percent of Americans now predict history will judge him as a ‘failed’ president.

“The survey, taken in the waning weeks of his administration, shows the risks of actions he is contemplating on his way out the door. Americans overwhelmingly say issuing a preemptive pardon for himself would be an abuse of presidential power, and an even bigger majority, including most Republicans, say he should attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration to demonstrate the peaceful transfer of power.”

The overall breakdown of responses in the survey are telling:

“Asked how history would judge Trump’s presidency, 16% predict he will be seen as a great president, 13% as a good president, 16% as a fair president, and 50% as a failed president. Five percent are undecided.” 

Trump’s numbers are also significantly lower than those of his predecessor, Barack Obama:

Then, a USA TODAY/Suffolk Poll found that half of Americans predicted history would view Obama in a positive light, with 18% calling him a great president and 32% a good one. Twenty-three percent called him a failed president.

That poll was all it took for the MAGA minions to lose their tiny minds on social media, where they proved just how clueless they truly are:

What’s going to be even more fun is in a few years when Trump gets ranked by historians as the worst president in American history. The Trump worshipers will probably demand that all the history books be burned. (Yeah, as if they could read them.)

Melania Trump Just Became One Of The Most Despised First Ladies In History

What is it with Melania Trump?

When her husband became president, she announced that her focus as first lady would be cyberbullying, which is certainly a noble cause that needs to be addressed. And yet she’s never once mentioned the fact that the guy she’s married to is one of the biggest bullies on social media.

There was also the infamous jacket Melania wore when she went to visit a detention center for immigrant children. It read: “I really don’t care, do u?”

All of this has led Americans to decide they’ve had quite enough of the current first lady, and they’re making their views known in a new poll conducted by CNN:

“Melania Trump will be exiting the White House with the lowest favorability rating of her tenure as first lady, according to a new CNN poll.

“At 47%, more people have an unfavorable view of the first lady now than at any point since CNN first asked about views of her in February 2016. The poll, conducted by SSRS for CNN, puts Trump’s favorable rating at 42%, with 12% of those asked answering they are unsure of their feelings about the first lady.

“Trump’s highest favorable rating was in May 2018 at 57% according to a CNN poll taken at the time, which came on the heels of the first state dinner and Trump’s attendance at the Texas funeral of the late first lady Barbara Bush. Trump went to the funeral without President Donald Trump.”

How, you’re probably wondering, does Melania’s pathetic favorable rating compare to her predecessor, Michelle Obama?

“In comparison, former First Lady Michelle Obama had a 69% favorability rating when she departed the White House in 2017.”

Yep, Michelle’s numbers were 27 percent higher than Melania’s. And that’s as it should be, especially since Mrs. Obama never plagiarized Melania when writing a speech.

It may sound harsh, but it needs to be said: Melania Trump is despised by a large percentage of the American public. And considering who she’s married to, that should surprise no one. Not even her.
