Biden's approval ratings hit all-time lows in CNBC poll

Anew CNBC poll, conducted by the same polling firms that helm the NBC News poll, finds President Joe Biden’s overall approval rating sinking to 36% among all adults, while his approval rating for handling the economy has fallen to 30% — both all-time lows for the president in CNBC polling.

What’s more, Biden’s ratings are lower than the worst scores ever for Donald Trump (37% job rating, 41% economic handling) or Barack Obama (41% job rating, 37% economic handling) during the entire course of their presidencies, according to both the CNBC and NBC surveys.

The new CNBC poll also shows just 11% of Americans believing the economy is either “excellent” (1%) or “good” (10%), compared with a combined 88% who say it’s “only fair” (30%) or “poor” (58%).

Additionally, 22% say the economy will get better in the next year, another 22% say it will stay the same and 52% think it will get worse.

These rough numbers for Biden — as well as pessimistic attitudes about the economy — come as the U.S. economy continues to add hundreds of thousands of jobs each month, plus as the unemployment rate has declined below 4.0%. But they also come as inflation increased by 9.1% over the past year, according to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

......yet in the most recent polls, if Joe Biden ran against Trump, President Biden would win again, 44% to 41%, how about that?

GOLDBERG: Examining the reasons why Joe Biden is failing

President Joe Biden is in deep trouble.

A New York Times-Siena College poll released Monday is just the latest survey showing profound discontent with the president and the direction of the country. His job-approval rating is a mere 33%.

More than six in 10 Democrats want someone else in their party to run for president in 2024. Only 13% of Americans think the nation is on the right track.

Where did Biden go wrong?

There are a lot of theories about why he’s in such a political mess. My own is that they’re all correct to one extent or another. His predicament is what social scientists call an “overdetermined” phenomenon. Something is overdetermined when there’s more than one plausible explanation for the cause of it.

For example, Biden’s poll numbers started to drop after his calamitous decision to withdraw from Afghanistan.

Then again, high inflation, especially energy prices, are poison for any president, particularly one who was so tardy to take it seriously. He betrayed his “return to normalcy” mandate when he decided to “go big” in a partisan pursuit of a new New Deal.

Biden had recently met with the Saudi crown prince and said he brought up the Khashoggi assassination.
Biden told reporters he was ‘straightforward and direct’ with Saudi leaders about the slain journalist, in a meeting that came after a fist bump between Biden and the crown prince that some saw as overly chummy
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... saudi-mbs/



Only problem is, if you believe you say something, and no one hears it, was it really said? There is a big possibility that Biden frequently lies to make himself look good, at least until he is caught. (and the truth will come out only on Fox News! lol)
EPOCHTIMES wrote: President Joe Biden early Sunday disputed a claim that he didn’t accuse Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of orchestrating the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in private meetings.

After arriving home in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, Biden was asked by a reporter about a comment from the Saudi foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir.
The Saudi foreign minister said he didn’t hear you accuse the crown prince of Khashoggi’s murder. Is he telling the truth?
the reporter asked the president.

“No,” Biden said quickly. “Why don’t you talk about something that matters?” the president then told journalists, as another one asked him about bumping fists with the Saudi crown prince, the de facto leader of the Muslim kingdom, who is sometimes referred to as “MBS.”

Biden added, “I’m happy to talk about something that matters.”

Days before that, at a news conference, Biden claimed that he spoke about the death of Khashoggi several years ago. After his death in 2018, a number of mainstream media outlets often featured the death as front-page news, and those outlets also attempted to tie his killing to the Trump administration. Federal agencies have suspected the Saudi government was involved in his death.

“With respect to the murder of Khashoggi, I raised it at the top of the meeting, making it clear what I thought of it at the time and what I think about it now,” Biden said during a press conference on July 15. “He [Crown Prince Salman] basically said that he was not personally responsible for it. I indicated that he was, and he said he was not personally responsible for it and he took action against those who were responsible,” Biden also said.

What the Minister Said But al-Jubeir, the foreign minister, told Fox News that Biden and MBS never addressed Khashoggi’s death.

This is a thread about the senile old fool Joe Biden. Trump's awesomeness can be found being discussed in other threads.

Why is it getting so common for supporters of these new woke left parties supporters to only resort to immediately trying to deflect from the current carnage of the ones in current power, by heading back in history to people that no longer have any relevance in anything?
We are a complete disgusting mess down here right now.
Absolutely every single piece of bidens campaigning has ending up in a worse position than the one he was attacking before.
Can anyone, like anyone out there prove how much better things are?
Border issue's, crime, division of people, hatred among people, inflation, energy, defunding the police, etc. etc.
Since when is it more important to ignore actual situations, current state of affairs, all for the emotional need of nothing but supporting your needed image through politics'?
It almost looks like some new liberal cult has formed.

Glenn Greenwald explains media shift against Biden: 'Democrats are petrified' he’s going to run again

The legacy media has taken a hostile turn against President Biden in recent months between questioning his fitness and casting doubt on a reelection bid, but independent journalist Glenn Greenwald believes news organizations don't necessarily want to take him down ahead of 2024 but rather Democrats themselves.

"The concerns about his cognitive decline emanated not from supporters of Bernie Sanders nor from supporters of Donald Trump, they came from these kinds of inside DC strategists and operatives who in 2019 were petrified that Biden would win the Democratic nomination basically by inertia—through name recognition, from having been Obama's vice president. And they were deeply worried that he was not capable of sustaining the rigors of a campaign. And they were the ones sounding the alarm in 2019 that he's not the same Joe Biden," Greenwald told Fox News in an interview last week. "And he ended up winning despite that and never had to test himself with the rigors of the campaign things to the COVID pandemic where he got to basically just speak from his basement and speak to a few friendly interviewers. So we'll never have known whether that they were right. They're the ones who are concerned about it."

"And you know, we're now three or four years later and the decline is palpable. I mean, you know, everyone who has a grandparent recognizes what's going on with Joe Biden, on top of which they're likely to get destroyed in the 2022 midterm election because he's become the single most unpopular president in post-World War Two history for a first-term midterm president. So obviously, Democrats are petrified that he's going to try and run again and clear the field," Greenwald continued.

Sen. Rand Paul blasts Biden for ‘begging and bowing down’ to Saudis to ramp up oil production

​Sen. Rand Paul blasted President Biden over his controversial trip to Saudi Arabia — accusing the commander in chief of “begging and bowing down” to the royals to increase the supply of oil.

“Rather than traveling to Saudi Arabia, [Biden] should be traveling to Texas or North Dakota, and he should be … asking our country to ramp up [oil] supply instead of begging and bowing down to the Saudis and asking them to bump up their supply,” the Kentucky Republican told host John Catsimatidis on his WABC 770 AM radio show in an interview that aired Sunday. ​

“It’s not only bad economics, but it’s embarrassing for him to be over there … begging them for more oil. I couldn’t be more opposed to what he’s doing​,” Paul said. ​

In the economic interplay between supply and demand, Paul accused the Biden administration of taking actions to deliberately reduce the supply of oil, causing prices to skyrocket this summer to more than $5 a gallon on average in June.

​”​Everything the Biden administration has done has been to reduce the supply. They’ve banished pipelines. They’ve banished drilling permits. They’ve banished drilling leases. They’ve stopped the expansion of drilling into ANWR, which is a portion of Alaska, which has enough oil to make us completely energy independent​,​ probably for 100 years​,” Paul said, referring to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Biden delivers tough talk on Iran as he opens Mideast visit

President Joe Biden on Wednesday opened his first visit to the Mideast since taking office by offering anxious Israeli leaders strong reassurances of his determination to stop Iran’s growing nuclear program, saying he’d be willing to use force as a “last resort.”

The president’s comments came in an interview with Israel’s Channel 12 taped before he left Washington and broadcast Wednesday, hours after the country’s political leaders welcomed him with a red-carpet arrival ceremony at the Tel Aviv airport.

“The only thing worse than the Iran that exists now is an Iran with nuclear weapons,” Biden said. Asked about using military force against Iran, Biden said, “If that was the last resort, yes.”

U.S. ally Israel considers Iran to be its greatest enemy, citing its nuclear program, its calls for Israel’s destruction and its support for hostile militant groups across the region.

The U.S. and Israel are expected Thursday to unveil a joint declaration cementing their close military ties and strengthening past calls to take military action to halt Iran’s nuclear program. A senior Israeli official said before Biden arrived that both countries would commit to “using all elements of their national power against the Iranian nuclear threat.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity pending the formal release of the statement.

Israeli leaders made clear as they marked Biden’s arrival that Iran’s nuclear program was the top item on their agenda.

“We will discuss the need to renew a strong global coalition that will stop the Iranian nuclear program,” said Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, as he greeted the Democratic president at the airport ceremony in Tel Aviv.

Biden said he would not remove Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the U.S. list of terrorist organizations, even if that kept Iran from rejoining the Iran nuclear deal.

The only news in that article is he pre-taped the comments, likely because he cant do off the cuff public speaking due to advanced dementia.

I like you Biden sunglasses person, you keep lobbing softballs we can knock out of the park.
