As Joe Biden Drowns, Some Pollsters Are Trying to Pull Him Up
You don’t have to be a political junkie to know that Joe Biden’s job approval ratings have been in the toilet since his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. Even as Afghanistan faded from the front pages, Biden hasn’t managed to recover. Most polls now have him underwater, and several of them are double-digits negative. Last month, Gallup had Biden at -10 approval.
Yet, there are a few polls that curiously show Biden in positive territory.
Who do they think they’re fooling? Biden’s RealClearPolitics average is -8.2 points. Do these polls that still show Biden in positive territory think they’re accurately reflecting what Americans feel about Joe Biden? Several polls have shown that Biden has lost significant support from independent and unaffiliated voters. For Joe Biden to be in positive territory right now, he’d have to be in positive territory among independent and unaffiliated voters… and it’s safe to say, based on the overwhelming majority of current polls, that he’s not.
Seriously, CNN and the rest of you… who do you think you’re fooling?
We know Biden has lost the voters’ faith, and bogus polls showing Biden’s approval from a plurality of voters won’t magically make it accurate.

Notes from the Editor
This should hardly come as a surprise; since 2016, we have seen leftist-leaning polling sites try to skew numbers to make their candidates look like they were doing better than they were. No place showed us this more clearly than the 2016 elections, where the polling was done not to get an accurate read, more to try to discourage people from voting.
The difference between then and now? Back then, the Democrats tried to be sneaky about this; today, they openly do this. They could care less if you call them out for this or not. Polling sites are not seeking facts; they want to sway public opinion, thus making them another outlay for the DNC.
