Even the mainstream pollsters can’t make Joe Biden look good.
According to The Daily Wire:
President Joe Biden’s approval rating at the 100-day mark of his presidency is the “third-lowest” since tracking began in 1945, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.
“All told, 52% of Americans in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll approve of Biden’s work in office, lower than any president at 100 days in office since 1945, save Gerald Ford in 1974 (48%, after his unpopular pardon of Richard Nixon) and Donald Trump at 42% in 2017,” ABC News reported. “For the 14 presidents from Truman to Biden, the 100-day average is 66%.”
“Biden’s honeymoon appears to be ending, if it was even there in the first place,” ABC political director Rick Klein said. “What’s so striking here is, you can at the same time say President Biden is in so much stronger position than his predecessor, but so much weaker than almost everyone else that we’ve seen at this point in a presidency.”
One factor that likely played a major role in the difference between the approval rating that Biden and Trump received at the 100-day mark in their presidencies is the media coverage that each received.
The only place Biden is excelling is with a 65% approval rating for his handling of the pandemic, much of which can be attributed to Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
