‘That’s not where the American people are right now’

A noted pollster is warning that Joe Biden’s approval numbers, though slightly positive, are a dark omen because they are significantly below most recent presidents.
“The fact he’s only in the low 50s right now is a really bad sign for Joe Biden,” pollster John McLaughlin said in a report by Just the News.
He said the problem is that the president is governing as an extreme leftist – after having promised the American people he would be a moderate.
“He’s taken what should have been very popular issues — COVID relief, infrastructure — that Americans overwhelmingly support and turned those into radical left-wing pieces of legislation,” said McLaughlin said in the report. “Republicans can’t wait to get into election season and talk about some of the things that are in those bills … expanding the welfare state, tax increases, basically open borders. That’s not where the American people are right now.”
Biden is just at 100 days in office and his job approval ratings actually are mostly assessed in polls at being just above 50%.
But ABC has reported that the average approval rating for the past 14 presidents at this point in their terms is 66%.
