A new AP/NORC poll is raising eyebrows because it claims that President Biden has an overall approval rating of 63%.

Considering he had an approval rating of 54% shortly after taking office, and almost all Republicans and even some Democrats are appalled at his far-left lurch, where did those 9 extra points come from? Are there people who actually like having a crisis on the border, more racial animosity, exploding crime rates, disappointing jobs numbers, rising inflation and higher prices for gas, when you can even find it? The only thing Biden’s touched that hasn’t been a disaster is the COVID vaccine developed under Trump that he takes credit for.

Personally, I always take polls with a pillar of salt, particularly ones that claim their sample is representative of the population, but don’t give any details (the population of the New York Times editorial room, maybe.) But this one seems especially mind-boggling in light of another new survey from Gallup.

It shows that the economic confidence index which measures Americans’ confidence in the economy fell from +2 in April to -7 in May. That’s where it was in March, so confidence in the economy is moving backwards even as the pandemic is ending. The survey also found that only 43% of Americans think the economy is getting better, while 53% think it’s getting worse.

If James Carville was right, and what matters to Americans is “the economy, stupid,” then anyone who really believes Biden has a 63% approval rating when 53% of Americans think the economy is getting worse must be pretty stupid about either polls, math or both.

    Poll: A method of asking certain people, certain questions, in order to get the resulting answers you want. Once you have culled those that give the wrong answers, you start your official poll with only those persons that gave the answers you wanted, and you get the desired poll responses you can publish.

    The Social Security question should NEVER be in question. Of course NOT.
    Social Security is a payback for money paid in and illegals have NOT paid in.
    STUPID QUESTION.
