The Democrat Party is headed for an epic wipeout this fall…which means that Joe Biden’s disastrous presidency has about seven months of shelf life before it’s functionally neutered.
For most Americans who have suffered under Biden’s feeble leadership and inane policies, that’s the good news. The bad news is that seven months is plenty of time for Joe to muck things up even more. Bumbling incompetence seems to be his only skill set.
Polling data is a strong barometer of what the November elections have in store for Democrats. On every issue, they’re taking a beating thanks to Joe. The worst national poll by Grinnell College gives Biden an abysmal 34% approval rating. The best poll by NBC News has him at 40% and dropping like the Hindenburg.
On every significant issue, the Biden-engineered train is a smoldering wreckage —gas prices, inflation, the economy, crime, policing, immigration, matters of race and gender, and the overall direction of the country. Joe gets clobbered on his handling of the economy with a scant 33% approval.
There is one certainty in U.S. politics: midterms are always a referendum on the president and his policies. Voters are clearly bitter. There is no sign that their antipathy will change before ballots are cast.
They’re not buying Joe’s vapid excuses that Putin is to blame for our nation’s economic woes. They know that the worst inflation in four decades well pre-dated Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Americans have been struggling with skyrocketing prices for almost a year, even though Biden insisted last summer that it was just “transitory.”
His recent warning that it will only get worse is an affirmation of his earlier lie. And confirmation that he has no idea what he’s doing.
The good news is that Americans know what to do. They intend to exercise their power to kick the ruling party out of Congress. Or at least enough of them so that Republicans regain firm control of both houses.
This will serve as an indelible check on Biden’s authority and a major roadblock to his radical policies of destruction.
Anyone who’s ever paid close attention to Joe Biden’s political career knew that he’d make a lousy president.
His nearly four decades as a U.S. Senator was notable for chronic misjudgments, regrettable votes, temper tantrums, and endless gaffes. As Obama’s vice president for eight years, he was treated like a lamp shade and routinely mocked as a dim bulb —which he is.
But the pandemic breathed new life into his faltering campaign. Joe hid out in the basement bunker of his Delaware mansion as COVID wreaked havoc on the national landscape. His handlers would occasionally trot him out in front of a teleprompter where he would read something written for him. Then he’d retreat into the bunker, never facing any rigorous questions or challenges.
The grand strategy of concealment worked, and Biden was elected. Surveys show that people didn’t vote for Joe, per se. They mostly voted against Trump. They didn’t dislike the incumbent’s policies, but they grew fatigued of the constant acrimony that accompanied his presidency.
That’s one helluva way to elect someone to the highest office in the land. But it happened.
What ensued was entirely predictable. Biden took office and immediately began blindly dismantling everything Trump had accomplished. By executive fiat, he transformed America from energy independence to energy reliant on foreign sources. Prices rose as they inevitably would.
Biden went to war against our nation’s oil and gas industries. He tried to put them out of business, while buying more expensive dirty oil from other countries. It made no sense. And Americans everywhere had to dig deeper into their pockets to pay for Joe’s insanity.
Biden never understood that energy drives every aspect of our thriving economy. Manufactured goods must be transported across our vast nation. Higher fuel costs are invariably passed along to consumers in the form of increased prices.
Then, together with Nancy Pelosi and a Democrat-controlled congress, Biden made matters worse by spending cash as if it grew on trees. They flooded the economy with trillions of dollars by printing more money.
As those dollars saturated the marketplace, prices inflated even more. It was the kind of dire economic fallout that students learn about in Econ 101. Of course, Biden was a miserable student.
This brings us to the present. A recent Fox News poll is a harbinger of the November elections. Americans are hurting and they correctly hold Democrats in power responsible.
A whopping 74% say the U.S. economy is in bad shape, and they blame Biden directly.
Two-thirds of voters disapprove of how he is handling inflation, while 68% blame him for the spiraling gasoline prices.
What’s the solution? Americans want Biden to change course…and re-adopt Trump’s energy independence.
A staggering three-quarters of voters want to increase domestic oil drilling and gas production. Two-thirds want the Keystone XL pipeline project restored.
Naturally, Biden is too arrogant and stubborn to do any of that. To reverse himself now would be an admission that he was wrong and drove America off an economic cliff.
