CNN Poll Shows Biden Burned Dems To A Crisp- Stick A Fork In Them Already!!
Someone just needs to stick a fork in the Democrats party because according to CNN, they're done! While chewing on the looming big losses Democrats now fact, CNN host John Berman couldn't help but note that Biden is the nail in their coffin. He asked polster Harry Enten to check the numbers. Here's how that interaction went:
HARRY ENTEN: No. So, basically, there's this whole idea, right? Can Democrats sort of outrun Joe Biden? And we want to first take a look at history here. And I think this gives you an understanding, right?
Look at the past presidents at the beginning of their terms, basically 42% for Biden looks a lot Trump. Obama was a little bit higher, Clinton was a little bit higher. George W. Bush way higher!
But look at these gains that we would eventually see the opposition party make when the president's approval rating was below 50%. Forty seats for the opposition party. Opposition party 63. Opposition party 54. All when the president's approval rating was below 50%. The only time when the president's party gained was when the president's approval rating was well above 60.
Joe Biden looks like a lot more like the losers here than the sole winner.
BERMAN: And for Democrats who hope they can outrun Joe Biden's approval rating?
ENTEN: I'm not buying it, John. This is our own poll, right? Which is basically the choice for Congress among voters who disapprove of Biden's performance.
If you look back in June and July, Republicans had a 51% lead. High. But look at where they were in September and October. That lead jumped to 61 points. So, the closer and we get to the midterm elections, seems those voters who disapprove of Biden are more much likely going to the Republican camp.
In short, the only time a party does well when its own member is president is if that president has amazing approval ratings. Biden has the worst approval rating in recent history. While CNN likes to note that Trump's numbers weren't that great, I would argue that he faced two false impeachments and a ton of bad coverage during his time in office. What is Biden's excuse? The press rarely even talks to the guy and when they do, they only toss softballs.
