Gallup: Biden Approval Rate Falls to 50%, the Lowest Yet

My butt got wiped!

The honeymoon appears to be waning.

"President Biden‘s latest job approval rating of 50% is down from 56% in June. Before this month, his ratings had not shown meaningful variation during his time in office, and the current figure marks the lowest measured for him to date," reported a new Gallup poll released Friday.

"Currently, 90% of Democrats, 12% of Republicans and 48% of independents approve of the job Biden is doing. His ratings among Democrats and independents are the lowest to date among those groups. The new poll marks the first time he has less-than majority approval among independents," Gallup said.

"The new rating is from a July 6-21 Gallup poll, which also finds that 45% of U.S. adults disapprove of Biden's performance and 5% do not have an opinion," the pollster noted.

Meanwhile, Democrats -- overt Democrat operatives and covert ones in the media -- begin blame-shifting for an anticipated 2022 loss, saying that Republicans are rigging the election by imposing rules to improve vote confidence.


Isn't it awfully strange that Democrats can endlessly allege vote fraud and the media amplifies their claims? And no one ever deplatforms them for it?

Corporate neoliberal grifter organization Fox will entertain Democrat complaints about a rigged election, while telling Trump to fuck off with his own complaints about genuine fraud.

Politico regurgitates the Democrats' "They're rigging the election" conspiracy theory even while ignoring their own reportage that people are sick of the Democrats' racial extremism.

Kaplan, [a Biden voter who is against CRT], set up meetings with state legislators and recruited people to meet with their school boards to discuss ethnic studies, is representative of Democrat-leaning or politically moderate suburbanites interviewed by POLITICO in six states, all but one of which were won by Biden. They are up in arms over their school systems' new equity initiatives, which they argue are costly and divisive, encouraging students to group themselves by race and take pro-activist stances. Proponents of the initiatives say they are a long-overdue step toward getting rid of systemic racism in the school system.

On the national level, Democrats have insisted that the brush fires over critical race theory -- which has become a political punching bag even for unrelated equity initiatives -- are largely the work of right-wing activists who willfully misrepresent what it means, and they blame Fox News for fanning parents' anger.


...

But those Democrats appear to be underestimating parents' anger in places where critical race theory is top of mind. Objections to new equity plans are not the sole province of conservatives but extend to many moderate and independent voters, according to POLITICO interviews with school board members, political operatives and activists in Democratic and left-leaning communities including the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.; Palm Beach County, Fla.; New York's Westchester County; Maricopa County covering Phoenix, Ariz.; and suburban Detroit.

Parents who are showing up to school board meetings and have helped launch a spate of recall elections say they are angry about a host of issues, including what they see as a myopic focus on diversity at school boards, ongoing frustration over a year of closed schools and school lesson plans that they say are becoming too progressive, too fast. While those complaints have often been branded in the media as "anti-critical race theory," the causes of the anger are varied, and are being ignored, parents say.

The stakes aren’t lost on Amanda Litman, founder of the Democratic organization Run for Something, which works to elect school board members and other local officials: "This is a perfect storm of something that can appeal to, or draw back in, some of the suburban parents that might have voted Republican in 2016, Democrat in 2018 and 2020, but could be drawn back to the Republican Party in 2022."


...

The parent -- who asked to not be named because of the heated politics in Novi -- said she has in the past voted for Democrats, but she considers her daughter’s ideas "radical." She and other parents formed an anonymous group to question the school board.

"Based on everything I have seen in the last year, starting with Covid, I cannot continue [voting for Democratic candidates] in good faith," she said.
