In what can only be classified as fake news or living in some types of delusional world, President Joe Biden was asked about his first year in office, and he proceeded to say that he “outperformed” and delivered “enormous progress.”
As the Hill reported, “I didn’t overpromise, and what I have probably outperformed what anybody thought would happen. I think if you take a look at what we’ve been able to do, you’d have to acknowledge we’ve made enormous progress.”
Maybe President Biden has outperformed President William Henry Harrison, but not many Americans think he is performing, let alone “over-performing.”
According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll, 37 percent of registered voters give the president an “F.” While 12 percent give him a “D.”
Biden received worse marks on handling immigration, the economy, and “restoring unity” — one of his big campaign promises.
It is also important to highlight that 68% of respondents believe the nation is on the “wrong track,” and his overall disapproval numbers are 56%.
So what do these numbers mean?
Think about it this way. If you were the boss of such an employee with Biden’s numbers, do you think you would give that person a raise, a promotion, or the opportunity to keep their hands driving your business going forward?
Those numbers are so stark there is only one conclusion. Joe Biden has lost independents, he’s lost some Democrats, and he’s lost the working-class American who only wants a fair shake in life. And the future isn’t looking any better?
Gas prices are expected to increase. The supply chain problems haven’t been fixed, and now Russia is looking to invade Ukraine while the COVID-19 virus continues to sweep the nation and world.
The Biden promises have not materialized, and I don’t expect any significant changes in the coming months because Democrats will be voting for their political survival. In contrast, Republicans will do everything to remind the American people of Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer’s failed promises.
What’s more, Biden may regret his words … “what do Republicans propose differently?” The answer will be a policy agenda that lowers gas prices, fully stocks shelves, a coherent and consistent strategy and message on COVID, and an America that doesn’t walk around trying to figure out how things went wrong in such a short time.
Biden should hold on to something because this will be a bumpy ride.
