Democrats In Media Bailing On Biden

His only true love.

Democrat media types can’t get over why Joe Biden is so unpopular. So they make up reasons that make his policies popular, just not him. They also blame the American people. Gee, and they wonder why they themselves are so unpopular.

FNC: “President Biden’s approval ratings have nosedived in the past few months following inflation and supply chain crises, but the liberal media have offered different suggestions and excuses that have largely put the blame on the American people.

Multiple pundits and guests on left-leaning CNN and MSNBC have suggested that one reason why Biden isn’t faring well in the polls is because Americans aren’t engaged enough in politics. CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’ unpacked that idea on Sunday.

Host Brian Stelter asked one of his guests, writer and photographer Chris Arnade, ‘what’s going on’ with Biden’s agenda and approval ratings, suggested the numbers don’t add up. Arnade answered by comparing Americans’ interest in politics to those who are only interested in football when the Super Bowl comes around.”

“I mean, I think the way we talk about politics and the way most people talk about politics – I mean, it’s entirely different,” Arnade said. “We’re like, you know, we’re like – it’s like the NFL and most people treat politics like they’ll tune in to the Super Bowl once every few years and that’s about it. That’s how they view politics as something, you know, they’re not a player in it, they’re just a watcher. They support teams. They support a side. But they don’t feel like – it’s a distance thing that really that doesn’t – doesn’t – they don’t have a say in that much. And so, how politics affects them is very experiential.”

“It’s not about, you know, connecting what’s going on to policy and connecting policy to what’s going on,” he continued. “It’s just not something people do. That’s what we do, but that’s not how people perceive things. And quite honestly, you know, as I’ve written, what people see right now and I’ve been, as you said, walking across America. I go into cities and I walk 20 miles across America and just spend time hanging out talking to people.” That is just idiotic. The man ought to stick to his camera.

“I think they’re seeing gas prices go up,” Robert Gibbs said. “I think they’re seeing their turkey dinners on Thanksgiving being more expensive. People wanted to feel a sense of normalcy going into this holiday season … Unfortunately that hasn’t materialized. I think that while a lot of the president’s agenda is popular, I don’t think the American people know much about it…The process of this has overwhelmed the of specifics of the substance.” Very bad spin from a former chief spin doctor.

Magdi Semrau, a leftist columnist, said, “I wrote about the disconnect between Biden’s approval rating–which appears to be slumping–& approval for his agenda–which remains high. This isn’t just a problem for Democrats. It’s a problem for democracy. The media has a role to play. Biden’s policies are more popular than he is. For the first time in the modern era, the link between president and agenda is broken.” Ah, another media lickspittle who wants the press to be the DNC media office. Orwell much?

These people like Brian Stelter are a bunch of dumb lying so-called news people, the people out in the country can see the real truth, they do not need a bunch of corrupt communist democrats to tell them they do not know anything, the people know plenty they see it and feel it. They do not need to listen to a bunch of lying fools. GOD BLESS A FREE THINKING USA

David, a beautifully written article. You are working your way to becoming today’s Mark Twain on the political front. I admire your work. I’d add to these delusional CNN and MSNBC “commentaries” that the Democrat agenda is not really a political agenda but rather a dictate from the global elite. Democrat politicians have nothing to do with the voters who blindly choose to vote Democrat. If there exists a disconnect—and there surely does—it is because we are witnessing the takeover of the U.S. government by private interests, using the misguided, self-serving sycophants of the Democrat Party as their shills, abetted by a useless emasculated Republican Party doddering on extinction. With the exception of the few Republicans such as John Kennedy, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, and of course Ted Cruz, the rest of the party might as well switch sides to the other side of the aisle. Americans, both Democrats and Republicans, are paying the price for enabling and allowing their government to declare itself its own Class, a “tool” for the Elite to execute their plan to subjugate the public masses.

There’s no high approval for his “agenda”. There’s indoctrinated pollsters asking people if they want free stuff without telling them how much it will cost them and the freedoms they must forfeit.

We are more politically savvy than in the past and why the only ones who aren’t would be the ones willing to hang out with a CNN guy.

His policies approval rating remains high per a lib propaganda type. Really, no wonder he is failing and the libnuts can’t feel it and don’t understand it, Creepy Joe is falling because his whole administration and ALL of his policies are failing. How much of what you earn is supposed to go to somebody who didn’t earn it? Creepy Joe is a JOKE and anyone who thinks he is really running anything and not a sock puppet for, Soros or Obama? Is deaf and blind and probably as brain damaged as Creepy. And we haven’t even started in on the 2nd in command whose only qualifications were race and gender, total complete loser, way beyond the level of incompetence and a BIG AH as a boss and probably as a human.
