According to a brand new CNBC survey, Joe Biden’s approval rating has reached a jaw-dropping 41%. So much for “the most popular President ever” that the media keeps touting!
“President Joe Biden’s approval rating slipped deeply underwater in the CNBC All-America Economic Survey as Americans soured on his economic leadership, lost some confidence in his handling of the coronavirus, and grew increasingly concerned about inflation and supply shortages,” CNBC reports.
“Just 41% of the public approve of Biden’s handling of the presidency, compared with 52% who disapprove. The poll of 800 Americans, conducted Oct. 14-17, has a margin of error of 3.5%,” they add in their report.
Micah Roberts of Public Opinion Strategies adds the following:
“Last quarter, the economic numbers were flashing yellow for Biden, but now that’s intensified and the light is flashing red, and it’s accompanied by multiple blaring sirens”
“If the economy doesn’t get back on track, and the Coronavirus doesn’t reverse course at some point soon, then this is a presidency that’s going to be in real trouble,” added Jay Campbell, a partner at Hart Research Associates.
In response to these numbers, CNBC’s Steve Liesman was stunned. He claims it’s the “worst” economic polling numbers he has seen in 13 years.
“I’m surprised at how negative things are,” he began.
“And honestly Andrew, we sit here in this bubble that we’re in of the stock market. We see that the stock market is up, and it’s high and it’s doing okay, but Americans are clearly hurting by this inflation and by supply shortages. And that has turned their views sharply negative. I expected to see negative numbers, but I didn’t expect to see some of the worst polling numbers that we’ve registered in the 13 years that we’ve been doing this every quarter,” he added.
Earlier this week, one of Biden’s biggest fans was even forced to admit the truth. CNBC’s Jim Cramer had to swallow his pride and tell his audience that inflation is “much worse than we thought”.
“Let’s talk about the questions that investors are wondering. If you’re worried about inflation, this is a huge issue,” the CNBC host asked Cramer.
“Yeah, I mean look, I think Paul Jones as always is right about inflation. It’s much worse than we thought. I keep hoping the capacity will come on and make it so that it’s not as bad, but it can’t seem to come on fast enough,” replied Cramer.
