Some Democrat strategists have expressed concern over President Joe Biden's handling of recent political setbacks.
Some Democrat strategists have expressed concern over President Joe Biden’s handling of hot-button issues such as inflation and abortion amid increasingly bleak polling numbers facing the president.
“There’s the administrative part of the job and the political part of the job, and it seems like this president is leaning more in the administrative role at a time when his coalition is thirsty for political clarity and leadership,” Democrat strategist Joel Payne said in an interview with The Hill published Wednesday. “The president and his team have to be vigilant about providing that and balance the need to do both.”
Biden is underwater in 48 states — including the typically dark blue California and his home state of Delaware — while his approval rating is down to the lowest in his presidency, at only 30 percent approval and 58 percent disapproval, according to the most recent CIVIQS rolling job-approval average on July 3.
While twelve percent of survey participants do not approve or disapprove, Biden’s approval rating is underwater in 48 states. The only two exceptions are Hawaii (45 to 42 percent) and Vermont (44 to 38 percent). The president’s net approval is at negative 28.
Biden has accomplished one positive thing. He has guaranteed the Republican takeover of Congress. Pelosi will soon be losing her gavel.
