Behind The Poll:
It’s Confirmed: Joe Biden Now Officially Worse Than Jimmy Carter
Now, Biden has officially hit perhaps one of the worst measures that you can hit — that’s the “Worse than Jimmy Carter” measure. Historically, Carter has always represented the lowest of the low when you’re talking about the economy because of the horrible inflation he faced at the time and his failure to do anything effective to address it. He also made things worse with his “malaise speech” — a speech where he said there was a crisis in confidence.
As we previously noted, the recent ABC/Ipsos poll found that only 28 percent of Americans approved of Biden’s handling of inflation, while 69 percent disapproved. Wholesale prices in November also rose at the quickest pace on record, increasing 9.6 percent over the past 12 months, when it was estimated to be at 9.2 percent. That’s the biggest annual PPI gain on record. Even Democratic pollsters were warning Democrats they needed to quickly concentrate on kitchen table issues or they could face their doom as a party and not just in the midterms.
Meanwhile, in the effort to go full-blown Jimmy Carter 2.0, Joe Biden did a redux of the “malaise speech” with his fear porn COVID speech where he warned America about a “winter of severe illness and death” because of the unvaccinated, continuing to be divisive and antagonistic.
