Biden had no trouble using his name as a reason to unite and believe this weekend. During his remarks celebrating Independence Day on the South Lawn of the White House, President Biden referenced his last name as assurance for the American people. He maintained that everything would turn out just fine for Americans.
In those remarks, the president claimed, “Together, we’re breathing life into our economy.” And then, even though the country is clearly divided over his leadership and the partisan nature of his administration, Biden continued, “Together, we will rescue our people from division and despair. But together we must do it. Over the past year, we’ve lived through some of our darkest days. Now I truly believe — I give you my word as a Biden — I truly believe we’re about to see our brightest future.”
The president’s “word as a Biden” guarantees a brighter future for America, and this comes at a time when polls show confidence in him significantly declining.
A new ABC News/Washington Post poll, released Friday, reveals how Americans feel about the way Biden is handling crime. The heading on the poll stated: “Biden is Rated Poorly on Handling Crime.”
The poll found a whopping 48% disapproved of the way Biden is handling crime and only 38% gave their approval. The poll stated, “The number of Americans seeing crime as an extremely serious problem in the United States is at a more than 20-year high, Joe Biden is underwater in trust to handle it.”
The poll was conducted between June 27-30 and it stated that 55% of Americans think increasing funding for police departments would reduce violent crime. A total of 51% say the same about stricter enforcement of existing gun laws and 46% say so about stricter gun control laws.”
“With an eye toward the 2022 midterm elections, Biden’s party shows potential vulnerability on crime in two hotspots: the Midwest, where the Republican Party leads the Democrats in trust to handle crime, 43-28 percent; and in the suburbs, a 43-31 percent GOP advantage,” the poll revealed.
The New York Post pointed out another area of vulnerability, an aspect of the president’s leadership where Americans have lost confidence in Biden. The Post said that many see him weak on immigration:
A new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that a majority of Americans disapprove of the job President Joe Biden is doing on immigration — as illegal border crossings smash records month over month creating an unprecedented crisis. The June 30th survey shows 51% of respondents are not satisfied with the president’s handling of the border crisis while 33% give him a thumbs up. … The poll found that Biden’s overall approval stood at 50%, 2 points down from an April survey, while disapproval held steady at 42%.
It’s not just crime and immigration that should cause concern for the Biden camp, he is experiencing sinking popularity in a third area: the economy. Reuters reported that just among Democrats, the base of the president’s support, Biden’s approval numbers regarding the economy had spiraled downward 12 points between April and June. Reuters continued adding, “Just 35% of the country thinks the U.S. economy is headed in the right direction.”
And the New York Times admitted on June 10, “Consumer prices rose in May at the fastest rate since 2008, a bigger jump than economists had expected and one that is sure to keep inflation at the center of political and economic debate in Washington.”
But you don’t need to worry about crime, the border, immigration or the economy. Because Biden has given us his word as a “Biden” that there is a bright future ahead.
