“President Joe Biden’s job approval rating has fallen to 33%, with more than half of respondents expressing disapproval in the latest poll from Quinnipiac University, released Wednesday.

About 1 in 3 respondents approve of Biden’s performance, while just over half disapprove and 1 in 10 expressed no opinion.

  • 33% approve of Biden’s performance.
  • 53% disapprove of Biden’s performance.
  • 10% had no opinion.

About half of Americans said that Biden is performing about as well as they expected, while about 4 in 10 said that he’s doing worse than they expected.

  • 50% said Biden is doing about as well as they expected.
  • 39% said Biden is doing worse than they expected.
  • 7% said Biden is doing better than they expected.”

Comment: I would like the Republicans in politics and the media to stop talking about how big they will win in November. They are inviting the judgment of the gods on their cause.

Hillary against someone like DeSantis or Noem. Great idea! Hillary against Trump? Bad idea! I live in the belly of the liberal upper middle class here in Alexandria in the midst up many Democrats who hate Trump’s guts. There are many like them. pl

    Upper middle class corporate critters also hate Trump’s guts. They are not too happy with Biden and the democrats, but I sense their revulsion over Trump outweighs their disappointment with them.

    Absolutely we need DeSantis or Noem. Guess we’re going to find out if Trump really is a pathological narcissist or if he really does care about the country (i.e. he is satisfied with making a critical endorsement or he insists on running again).

    Col. Lang,

    IMO, DeSantis is the best bet for the Republicans. He’s demonstrated he can take on the corporate media and the Big Tech propaganda machine. He stood his ground in the face of massive attacks when he reopened Florida including their schools in August 2020. And by the time we get to 2024, it will become more apparent that the covidian policies of lockdown and coercion were a complete failure and an unprecedented power grab by authoritarians. I hope he’ll get on moving the needle to a serious inquiry into the origins. The Republicans have released some of the unredacted communications among key virologists in February 2020 and Fauci/Collins and it is much more clear that what was unleashed is a man-made virus.

    Not only that he’s articulate and substantially more sophisticated than Trump can ever hope to be. He also won’t be easily rolled as we saw happen with Trump. I believe he’ll defeat Trump in the primaries. Sure, he’s not gonna get the diehard Trumpistas in the primary but he’ll get a lot of MAGA types as well as the independents who could vote in the primary & the more traditional Republican voters. The only negative that I see is that he’ll be much more aligned with the neocon warmongers and the intelligence apparatus.

      Hard to come into government service, without prior government service. Trump had an impossible learning curve coming in as an outsider from day one. They knew how to exploit his weaknesses.

      To his credit, Trump still got an amazing numbers of things done anyway. Impossible hills to climb were thrust in his way – by the corrupt deep state and media. But he kept plugging along. For that alone, I would like to see him get a real full term now that he knows how to blast past the internal opposition.

      But also agree, he triggers too much latent voter opposition triggered by the rabid media. Can he exert sufficient control over an alternate media force by 2024?

      I still say it was 10% Trump weakness and 90% media overkill that defined Trump to most voters, and the rest of the world. That is still out there and it is still very potent – by monopoly as well as agenda.

      • blue peacock says:

        Trump got the brass ring. He didn’t execute on the one thing he didn’t require anyone – get the intelligence & federal law enforcement apparatus on the run. He wilted. No guts. No glory. But of course he’s always been seeking the approval of the hoi polloi his whole life.

        DeSantis on the other hand has shown real guts in taking on the covidians who are a real force and were dominant with their authoritarian gambit.

        Difference of opinion.

        • Lysias says:

          As Trump’s VP, DeSantis will be able to prevent Trump’s worst mistakes. If a Trump/DeSantis administration succeeds, that will mean 12 years: 4 of Trump/DeSantis and then 8 of DeSantis.

        • Fred says:


          Hindsight is 20-20. DeSantis has the advantage of seeing what the ‘deep state’ has done. He had better train a lot of subordinates, otherwise Florida will be at the whim of a RINO or lefty as soon as the next election.

      • Lysias says:

        With covid, the media have discredited themselves in many people’s eyes.

  3. Fred says:

    Hatred of most Americans appears to be the motivating factor for most of the liberal upper middle class Democrats. Hilary called them “deplorables” to great cheers from her true believers. Biden calls those same people racists and domestic enemies. Your point about Trump is well taken. He’ll trigger the people motivated only by hate to come out of their gated communities by the thousdands. His acting like a wounded lion lashing out at DeSantis is counterproductive within his own base; but then he’s always been his worst opponent. Noem? I think she fits into the ‘controlled opposition’ catagory. She’ll get eaten alive by the same machinery that went after Trump. Worse would be Nikki Haley, who keeps getting trotted out every now and again.

  4. Deap says:

    Keeping in mind the northern Virginia “white liberal” underbelly includes a lot of government employees. Trump reduced the size of government by 250,000 workers.

    I suspect battle in these Beltway Bubble area is far more government paychecks, perks and pensions versus Trump pink slips. Same applies to California – term limits let government employee unions move into the power vacuum and control the agenda.

    Rabid anti-Trumpism does not run as deep in many other parts of the country. But I agree, Trump does need to abandon his most cringe-worthy bad habits to be a 2024 contender – less thin-skinned vitriol; more confident self-effacement. He has earned the right to be a Great President – and he needs to embrace this honor more fully.

    The issues he championed still need attention: the economy, border security, small businesses, size and scope of government, urban core malaise, shared virtue and values – America first, last and always and then deal with everything else.

    • Eric Newhill says:

      Rabid anti-Trumpism can be found anywhere there is a concentration of liberals. Here in Tucson, AZ there are a lot of liberals and I can assure you, based on personal experience with them, that they hate Trump’s guts. They tend to be the kind of liberal that doesn’t like the “establishment” generally and aren’t very motivated to participate in the political system unless it is to get someone far left, like Bernie, elected. However, they’d come out in force just to keep Trump out of office. That appears to be what happened in 2020 (that and ballot harvesting).

  5. akaPatience says:

    IMO Hillary Clinton’s a contender mainly in her mind only. If she’s the best the Democratic Party can come up with, it’s sunk. After putting forth an obvious dementia sufferer who’s performed atrociously, I can’t imagine another geriatric has-been, and lifetime grifter to boot, would be very inspiring. Instead, I suspect they’ll go with a person of color — they’re already hemorrhaging Hispanics, and after the economic setbacks blacks have suffered under Bidenomics, they can’t afford to lose more of them too.

    Any worthwhile, non-Uniparty Republican (which rules out Haley and probably Noem) will get The Treatment — surely DeSantis will — and since Trump has already run the gauntlet, the made-up scandals aren’t going to work quite like before: been there, done that. Still, the animus certain leftists and NeverTrumpers feel for him is a factor not to be ignored. Neither are his often ego-related shortcomings. No doubt the MSM wants him back to improve their ratings — they haven’t been able to let go as it is — which may be why the polls they commission consistently show him walloping Biden. I do believe he has a formidable following and I’d vote for him again, but I like DeSantis as well – and it’s probably time to pass the baton to someone younger, especially in the wake of Dementia Joe.

    • blue peacock says:

      Hillary brings up the same distaste to middle-of-the-roaders and the right to boost their turnout, just as Trump does to the middle and the left.

    I have no expectation that the Pubbies will do anything substantive even IF (a big if, given the state of election integrity) they win. Their grift is as dependent on the status quo as the Dems is. They are not going to address illegal immigration in any meaningful way (their donors want cheap labor; they themselves need the servants), they are not going to remove us from any foreign entanglement no matter how useless (there is nothing worth dying for in Ukraine), they are not going to address the nation’s increasingly unpayable debt.
    I cheered when Trump questioned “why we are in NATO”; I told my wife that time that the system would get him. They did.
    In the larger view, I don’t see them in general willing to challenge President Obama’s intent to fundamentally change the US into an identity based Marxist, quasi feudal society in which my descendants will find themselves permanently consigned to the bottom of the heap.
    I have to grudgingly respect Obama for accomplishing much of what he said he would do. Few do that.
    I have no use for the Pubbie establishment.
    I live in South Carolina’s deepest blue area, Columbia and Richland County; there is no Republican party opposition or good government watchdog in the area that I see. The Pubbie hierarchy gave me neocon darlings Lindsay Graham and Nikki Haley; rumor has it that the Pubbies funded primary candidates intended to split the anti Graham conservative vote. Haley’s finances may be dodgy (there was a report that she bankrupted her parents)
    At least we have a good governor without aspirations for higher office. My friends that know him personally trust him and tell me that in real life he’s a nice guy. Several state agencies ride herd, for the moment, on the local governments, keeping some of the incompetence and malfeasance at bay. But he won’t be in office much longer, and the actions of state agencies are dependent on who is in charge.
    Glad I’m not young!

    • Deap says:

      Teachers unions have more to gain keeping borders open than any other group, including your alleged Republicans who still need servants.

      Not enough Republicans in California to employee its high numbers of illegals as “servants”, or even in increasingly the mechanized ag sector. The votes are simply not there to support open borders just to ensure Republican donors can have cheap servants. Maybe Hollywood elite is the better market, but they are Democrats; not GOP. The hoary stereotype of the abusive fat cat Republican needs change. At least in California, which has the leakiest border of all.

      However, since 80% of our school K-12 enrollments are now illegals (aka english learners) in California, many Democrat teacher union members would lose their jobs if borders were closed and sanctuary cities were prohibited. Follow the money. There is your support for open borders.

  7. Babeltuap says:

    He got the most votes in history once the fraud is shredded and more minority votes than any GOP candidate in upward of 60 years…meh.

    The anti-Trump movement was and still is a facade. Anyone saying otherwise refuses to look behind the front of that bank building. Nothing in it and nothing behind it but a handful of 2X6’s propping it up. Dislike him all you want but that is the facts.

  8. TV says:

    I personally found Trump refreshing – not a poll tested empty suit – who pissed off all the people I would like to piss off and his policies just what America needs BUT he is a TERRIBLE manager and his ego prevented him from hiring good, and loyal, managers and that contributed to losing the battle with the swamp.
    I want someone less narcissistic and more hands-on who wants to implement Trump-like policies.
    Desantis seems to be the closest.

  9. Marlene says:

    If you allow my uninformed opinion, knowing nothing of De Santis background, these are time of rules not law, times of mafias, like inmediately after the fall of the USSR.

    De Santis, as governor of Florida, may have the knowhow to treat with these elements.
    I would venture that even he has the appropiate face to deal with such fauna.

    Definitely opposing “vaccine mandates” is the winning hand.

    Trump has the stain of pushing the start point for “Warp Speed” to produce the “vaccines” and placing Fauci at his current position where he can command the extermination of great part of not only Us people, but humanity.
    People who resulted harmed by vaccine side effects or dead and their relatives plus those harmed by the lockdowns will not forgive.

    Trump is already burnt. None of the other Trumps will make it. Not enough charisma.

    De Santis is the guy, and will reap a lot of support in Europe.
    I am all for anyone who leaves others alone to live their lives without constant interference

    Biden’s supply chain problems exposed – massive looting along RR tracks along with massive littering of empty shipping packaging in “green” California – causing customers to get notices of “delayed” shipments.

    RR tracks are federal jurisdiction and are rampant crime corridors, because in California because local police are not allowed to monitor them.Drug trafficking, vagrants camps and police no-go territories for years and now prime for Amazon Prime looting.

    This is fantastic!
    Dutch MP Gideon van Meijeren confronts PM Rutte on his connections w/ Klaus Schwab

    We need the people we elect to have balls like this young man.

    This video of young Dutch member of parliament questioning Prime Minister Rutte on the Great Reset and calling it a neo-communist technocracy is beautiful. We need more young politicians like him unafraid of calling bs on the current prevailing political and media orthodoxy.
