Some new polls bring a tsunami of bad news for Democrats. They show that even with the combined propaganda might of the government, the media and social media, you can’t pull the wool over the eyes of most Americans. You can bully some into not saying what they’re thinking, but you can’t keep them from thinking it. And eventually, they’ll get sick enough of being bullied and yell what they're thinking into your face.
First up, a new Trafalgar Group poll finds that 56.5% of Americans don’t believe that Joe Biden is fully executing the duties of his office. That even includes 31.7% of Democrats. Only 36.4% believe Biden is fully in control. These people are also known as “Americans who’ve never watched a Joe Biden press conference.”
Related: No, despite what Biden told the World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, he did NOT hit a 368-foot home run off the right centerfield wall of RFK Stadium in his second Congressional baseball game in 1974. He actually singled out twice, and it wasn’t even played in RFK Stadium. The White House had no comment, and neither did the media. You can imagine the howls of “Lying liar!!!” if Trump had said that, but with Joe, they just assume he confused himself with Mark McGwire and move on.
On to the other polls: A Washington Post/ABC News poll (so I assume it’s heavily slanted left) still found that 51% of Americans disapprove of how Biden is handling the border, with only 33% thinking he’s doing a decent job.
Democrats may be shocked by a new Pew Research poll that shows how many black Americans identify as conservative, moderate or Christian (80%...hardly a shock to me); how many Republican ideas like charter schools and voter ID that they support; and how strongly opposed they are to crazy leftist ideas like defunding the police.
A poll by Forbes/Tate Partners finds overwhelming disapproval by Americans of the Democrats’ “PRO Act” that would kill contract and gig jobs, eliminate right-to-work laws and force workers to pay union dues.
A new poll by Heritage Action finds that 64% of Americans oppose defunding the police (I’m surprised it’s not higher), and only 31% believe the handling of crime is better under Biden. I’m assuming those 31% are criminals.
Finally, and most encouraging for the 4th of July, an Issues & Insights/TIPP poll found that most Americans aren’t ashamed of this nation. In fact, they’re rightly proud to be Americans. 44% say they are “extremely proud,” 23% are “very proud,” 15% are “moderately proud,” 8% are “slightly proud,” and the big voting bloc that the Democrats are aiming for, those who are “not at all proud to be Americans,” comprise 6%.
Despite all the assaults on America as irredeemably racist, 55% of blacks and 57% of Hispanics say they are either “very” or “extremely” proud to be Americans. Only 7% and 9%, respectively, are not proud. They are also known as “CNN commentators.”
Surprisingly, despite the far-left bent of universities and the media's dissing of “low information” patriotic Americans, 75% of college graduates are proud to be Americans compared to 62% of those with only a high school diploma.
It’s worrying that the only group where a majority are not very or extremely proud to be Americans (36% total) are young people aged 18 to 24. I assume this reflects the corrosive miseducation they’ve received from leftist schools, media and social media. Here’s video proof of how woefully ignorant they are about America's history and how incredibly blessed they are to be here:
That problem urgently needs to be corrected by reforming schools and reining in social media. Let’s hope that the current badly-educated generation will come to their senses once they’re far enough away from the campuses and get enough experience with real life to have some sense knocked into them.
