An Ipsos poll just released shows two-thirds of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. Not only that, but President Joe Biden’s polling numbers continue to swirl around in the toilet bowl. The befuddled Big Guy has fallen to under 50% approval on every one of the top ten issues Americans care about most.
What’s more remarkable about the Ipsos results is that gun control doesn’t even make the top ten. Could it be that Americans are figuring out that gun control doesn’t work? And that it makes it harder for them to defend themselves? If gun control worked, cities like New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago would likely be among the most peaceful in America.
In Lori Lightfoot’s Windy City, they now stand at
561 564 (Editor: what a difference a day makes!) homicides for the year. One single street in Chicago (pictured above) has seen ten shot and three killed so far this year. The street isn’t in a poverty-stricken slum either. Instead, it’s not far from downtown. In fact, there’s a Chicago Fire Department Station on the same block.
The Daily Wire has the bad news for Ol’ Joe and Kamala:
With less than a month to go until the midterm elections, President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are in the dumper.
Now, a new poll shows just how bad things really are.
Fewer than 1 in 4 people (24%) think America is going in the right direction, the Ipsos poll of 1,003 people found. Sixty-three percent think the U.S. is on the wrong track.
But there was one section of the survey that was shocking: Biden’s approval rating is less than 50% on every single one of the top 10 issues Americans most care about.
COVID-19 — 47%
Environment — 44%
Racial Inequality — 42%
Employment/Jobs — 38%
Unifying Country — 37%
International Trade — 37%
Taxation — 34%
Economy — 33%
Immigration — 33%
Corruption — 31%
And Americans weighed in on what they most want Biden to focus on.
Economy — 55%
Employment/Jobs — 24%
Immigration — 21%
Environment — 16%
Unifying Country — 15%
Corruption — 12%
COVID-19 — 9%
Racial Inequality — 8%
International Trade — 2%
Other — 5%
“The economy has been at the top of Americans’ list for a full year now,” the pollsters wrote. “All partisans agree that the economy is the top issue, with Republicans (40%) most likely to say so, followed by independents (30%), and then Democrats (22%).”
Despite the fact that Ipsos didn’t show meaningful numbers of Americans want the government to focus on further limiting their gun rights, that hasn’t stopped Joe and crew from crowing about their plans to do exactly that.
That shouldn’t be a surprise. Joe Biden has come down on the wrong side of every major issue during he half century he’s been in government.
Keep talkin’ Joe. Just keep running your mouth.
