The fate of the majorities that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer control in Congress is tied to that of Joe Biden.
A President’s approval rating is the best indicator of how many seats his party will lose in a midterm election.
Now Joe Biden got some bad news that will make Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer sweat.
Joe Biden hit a summertime slump and his honeymoon period is over.
Biden created an illegal immigration crisis by opening the southern border.
Democrats’ multi-trillion-dollar big government spending bonanza drove up inflation and created an economic crisis that’s only starting to hit.
But there are still nine million jobs open because Democrats won’t end enhanced unemployment benefits that pay Americans more to sit at home and collect welfare than go back to work.
Now the administration is facing a credibility crisis telling Americans on one hand that the coronavirus vaccines work while on the other hand telling them nothing about their life will change and they still have to wear masks and avoid large gatherings even if they take the vaccine.
Now the damage from these catastrophes is dragging down Joe Biden’s approval ratings, with a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll showing Biden’s numbers plummeting 10 points in a month.
“A Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released Monday found Biden’s approval dropping to 52 percent. He may still be above water — only 43 percent of respondents disapprove of the job he’s doing in the Oval Office — but he’s down 10 points from where he was in June, when his approval was at 62 percent,” The Hill reported.
Biden and the Democrats got more bad news from the poll in the form of Americans growing more pessimistic about the state of the country and the economy.
The Hill report noted:
The percentage of respondents who say that the country is on the right track fell to 46 percent last month after peaking at 53 percent in June, according to Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll. The percentage who believe the country is on the wrong track simultaneously rose to 47 percent after dropping to 39 percent in June.
Optimism about the U.S. economy fared even worse in the poll, with the number of respondents who say it’s on the right track falling to 43 percent from 49 percent in June. Forty-nine percent now say the economy is on the wrong track, up from 42 percent in June.
Democrats can only afford to lose five seats in the House of Representatives and one in the Senate before Republicans reclaim the majority.
The trendlines in the polls are not good for Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
