Biden's job ratings decline amid Covid surge, Afghanistan withdrawal in NBC News poll

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/meet-the-press/biden-s-job-ratings-decline-amid-covid-surge-afghanistan-withdrawal-n1277368

So stupid. Biden's approval in handling Covid went from 69% to 53%. Only 25% support his handling of Afghanistan.

How is the Covid surge Biden's fault? It's not his fault that so many Americans are anti-vax idiots. I knew DeSantis' strategy of killing off Floridians and blaming it on Biden would actually work in this stupid country.

Meanwhile you literally have CNN/ABC pulling "But her emails" part II to blame Biden for the chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal. You have Republicans literally using Taliban propaganda to lie about what's happening over there. They're obviously refusing to talk about how much Trump and Pompeo contributed to this mess.

I'm so fed up with Republicans getting away with everything and Democrats being held to such a stupidly high standard.

1. Biden has the policy strengths and vision

to transcend a rough first year. He's been a pretty standup guy in saying that he takes responsibility for things that happen on his watch.

2. Of course they did.

The media’s been unfairly brutal. But after a few months, when Afghanistan is out of the news, his approval will tick back up especially if we get the infrastructure bills passed. He’s a likable guy, he’ll be ok.

5. That would be nice!

However I doubt Manchin and Sinema would be on board.

7. Job Approval Numbers

are within the MOE (margin of error) of their own polls.

9. Media hysteria and catastrophizing.

Almost gleeful. I avoided most of it.

10. Maybe some "sane" Republicans are leaving Fox and

some other networks have figured out ‘by golly, these folks have to go somewhere,’ so they give them good ole Fox-Light reporting. It’s all for eyeballs and ratings.

Joe Biden was voted in because Americans trusted him to turn the country around. He’s doing it.

12. I support Biden's decision to withdraw

Afghanistan was always rarely covered by the media. It used to be known as America’s forgotten war. Now that Biden is making the correct decision the media remembers we had a war on Afghanistan for 20 years.

It is the right thing to do to end the war and not pass that decision to another President. I also admire he is willing to take a beating from the press to make that decision.

The Delta variant came from India IIRC and they have one of those right wing populists so not much the US can do about that.

14. I don't think President Biden

is too concerned about polls.

His vision is to do the right thing for

the average American family.

Now, if the Democrats run around

spineless and are not resolve in their

support for his vision then they are

their worst enemy.

Joe has nothing to lose at this point

he's already lived a fulfilling life.

15. This was the goal, after all the reconciliation and infrastructure bills must be killed so first

attack the President then blame it on Afghanistan, not the billionaires who are opposed and who just happen to own all the big national news organizations.

This is going along with new topic of this week, the 9 Dem House reps who are opposed to the reconciliation legislation.

16. I'm not worried about him losing because 2024 is three years away

I'm extremely worried about 2022 however.
