White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday came clean and acknowledged President Joe Biden’s sinking poll numbers but shockingly tried to blame COVID for Biden’s terrible approval numbers with the American people.
She said: “I would say that this is a really tough time in our country. We’re still battling COVID, and a lot of people thought we’d be through it, including us.
“And because of the rise of the delta variant, because of the fact that even though it was a vaccine approved under a Republican administration, even though we now have full FDA approval, and even though it’s widely available across the country, we still have 20 percent of the country who have decided not to get vaccinated.
“No question that’s having an impact.
“And of course as the president has said, the buck stops with him.
“That’s far and away the biggest issue in the minds of the American people, and it’s impacting a lot of issues.”
From Fox News:
President Biden’s standing among Americans keeps sinking, according to a new national poll.
The president’s approval rating stands at just 38%, with disapproval at 53% in a Quinnipiac University survey released on Wednesday. That’s down from a 42%-50% approval/disapproval rating for Biden in a survey Quinnipiac University conducted last month.
The president received negative scores in the double digits on all but one key issue asked in the new poll, which was conducted Oct. 1-4. And a majority of those surveyed said the Biden administration is not competent in running the federal government.
“Battered on trust, doubted on leadership, and challenged on overall competency, President Biden is being hammered on all sides as his approval rating continues its downward slide to a number not seen since the tough scrutiny of the Trump administration,” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said.
