      From https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/21/politics/iowa-poll-joe-biden-approval/index.html :

      Just 31% of Iowans approved of how Joe Biden is handling his duties as president while a whopping 62% disapprove. Biden’s disapproval number is below the lowest ever measured by ace pollster J. Ann Selzer for former presidents Donald Trump (35%) and Barack Obama (36%).

      “This is a bad poll for Joe Biden, and it’s playing out in everything that he touches right now,” Selzer told the Des Moines Register.

      Biden’s approval on pulling American troops out of Afghanistan stands at a meager 22%. Approval for his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is now just 36% among Iowans.

      This poll is rightly understood as a blaring red alarm for not just Biden but especially down-ballot Democrats — in Iowa and elsewhere — who will be running in the 2022 midterms.

      It is no help he has Kamala Harris as his V.P.

        And wow is that awkward for her. Could be worse, he could have made her in charge of Hunter’s laptops.

        All kidding aside, it’s looking more and more like that appointment was a clever way to scuttle any hope Harris might have of being the nominee in 2024.

        The thinking being that if Joe couldn’t run it would likely be because the popularity of the administration was under water, and the party would want to present someone who looked untainted by association with Biden’s mishaps as a savior.

        Corey Booker’s moment might be approaching, especially if he got married to Rosario Dawson before the primaries.

            Since when is Wikipedia neutral when it comes to politics?

      apart – legislation that MAY help them over the Next Ten Years?  Or, perhaps, they have figured out that help from the Democrats is to be measured in terms of campaign pandering.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      Their only problem is the Supreme Court. It hears oral arguments on December 1 on a case that seeks to overturn Roe v. Wade. If it does overturn it, the decision will be announced in July or so of 2022. Which means the media, ever desperate to distract attention away from the failures of capitalism, may try to make the midterm elections all about abortion.

      If they succeed, the Democrats might hold on to their majorities in Congress. No worries, though. They still won’t do anything to undermine the oligarchy. It would, however, virtually guarantee a Republican in the White House in 2025.

        … and wouldn’t that be THE opportunity to assure that “We, The People” defeat a patriarchal history of abortion rights in exchange for a well constructed economic trap in what we read, hear, see of feel in an ever-shrinking locus of control over the Empire of the United States?

        I wonder how long the economic trap will last? I wonder how long it will take to see that the U.S. petrol dollar fails?

         

        Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

          For all I know, the Supreme Court will uphold Roe v. Wade. In half, or maybe most, of the states abortion rights have been whittled since at least the 1980s, to the point that for all intents and purposes only women of means can obtain them. If it’s overturned, and if the Democrats want to win, they’ll definitely make that their central issue since they’ve failed to deliver on almost everything else.

          I don’t know if it would work or not.

          I have no answers to your last two questions. I’m continuously amazed at how the oligarchy keeps looting the rest of us and propping up this irrational economic edifice that cannot possibly endure.

          most people see only what corporations want them to see so many will never see the stories about what really affects them – it’s just a presentation of a selected view.

          I mean that seriously – Bill Clinton signed the law eliminating limits on media ownership in 1996 and 25 years later here we are.

          And when I start to see stories like this on CNN I wonder how much longer Biden will be permitted to remain in office.

      It really should drive people into the streets for revolution, but it will probably only drive them to their smartphones.
      Trump: I never voted for him of course, but most expected him to be in-your-face but to not know what he’s doing. He delivered on that.
      Biden: Got into the general election through stolen primaries. Fairly blatant. Had come in 3rd or 4th in all honest primaries he’d been in. Very few actually wanted him except that he wasn’t Trump. Probably the majority of voters actually voted against Trump. I never voted for Trump *or* Biden. Or to put it more precisely, didn’t vote for either of the Big Parties.
      Biden actually has outperformed so far in rushing in the fascism and fight against human rights. But he did get us out of Afghanistan, at least mostly, as of this moment. Summary of Biden: One of the most popularity-resistant (and impeachment-attracting?) Presidents they could have selected.

      Biden’s approval rating is now at 43% according to Gallup, the same number he slipped to when he hit a record low in the NPR/Marist poll earlier in September.
      He holds a 90% job approval from Democrats, according to Gallup. Republicans give him a 6% approval rating.

      Independents Show Greatest Decline in Approval of Biden

      Just like the NPR/Marist survey, Biden has been losing ground among independent voters in Gallup’s version. In January, 61% of independent voters told Gallup they approved of Biden’s job performance.

      Vice President Kamala Harris fared slightly better, with her approval rating landing at 49%, according to Gallup.
      Harris enjoys nearly unanimous approval from Democrats (92%) while receiving very low approval from Republicans (4%).

      48% of respondents say they have a positive view of Trump compared to 46 percent who say they have a favorable opinion of Biden.

      Biden’s favorability is slightly underwater, however: 49% of those surveyed said they have an unfavorable view of the current president, while slightly less — 47 percent — report an unfavorable opinion of Trump.

      The findings are a remarkable shift for Biden, who repeatedly outperformed Trump’s favorability numbers throughout the early months of his presidency.

      Is that they help enable people, and even journalists, to feel truly free to speak their minds regarding the competency, and integrity, of both of them.

      And once it becomes “common knowledge” that Biden is a long shot to get renominated, look out, because there will be jockeying among hopefuls for the 2024 nomination to appear to have been ahead of the curve in having the right publicly held positions in regards the shortcomings of the administration.

      It could get so bad for Harris that her only hope to avoid being a chew toy of those who’d want to eliminate her from the race, is to declare that she won’t be running. Then she can lay back and hope for appointment as Attorney General, or to the Supreme Court.

      Biden crapping out before 2024 is a nightmare scenario for the party establishment. They don’t think that they can’t afford to have Harris be a de facto lame duck upon assuming office, nor have her as the presumptive nominee. And they know that they’d be blamed for the public holding the party at fault for Biden and Harris having gotten so much establishment support.
