Joe Biden may be President of the United States, but judging from his response when he was asked about his dismal poll numbers, he must be running for Queen of Denial.

While the latest USA Today/Suffolk poll shows him at a historically low 38% approval, he insisted his polls were on par with Clinton’s and Obama’s and that he just saw a poll that had him at 48%. I assume he means the latest CNN poll (of course), but even that one shows 58% of respondents say he’s not paying enough attention to the most important problems. I checked the Real Clear Politics roundup of the latest 13 polls. Even including the Democrat-friendly ones, his average approval rating is 42.8%.

Still, Biden brushed off the question, saying, "But look, the point is I didn't run because of the polls." Darn good thing!

But that was only the tip of the denial iceberg. He also blamed his low ratings on Americans being anxious about COVID. He said, "Even though we've created almost six million jobs since I came into office, we're in a situation where people don't, I mean they don't feel it right now. They don't feel it." (Note: allowing businesses that were artificially shut down by the government to reopen and people to go back to work is not “creating” jobs.)

He went on, “Gas prices are up, exceedingly high…That's why I have the Attorney General taking a look at whether or not these gas companies are gouging people." Yeah, that’s the reason why gas is so expensive! Those same gas companies that were charging $1.89 a year ago suddenly realized they could gouge customers after he coincidentally declared war on the domestic fuel industry.

Supply chain problems? That’s all just COVID, man. But don’t worry, because with the passage of the $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill (about $110 billion of which goes to actual infrastructure), widespread infrastructure projects will begin in "the matter of weeks."

I’m old enough to recall the last time Congress voted to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on “shovel-ready jobs.” Several years later, even Obama later had to admit there were no “shovel-ready jobs.” Because of all the green regulations and red tape that Biden wants to make even worse, no major infrastructure projects could launch without a decade’s worth of environmental studies first.

I’m sure he’ll find a way to ignore this poll, too: USA Today asked people what was the one thing they wanted to see President Biden do in the next year. The top answer was “Resign/retire/quit.”

    I see a year of high drama and self induced trauma and raging psychosis.
    Now It appears God is moving to unearth the corruption on both sides. The RINOs will band with the left in their attempts to destroy what is left. We need to continue in fervent prayer. I pray that all branches if the federal government will be exposed for the rot the rot that has overtaken it

    The nefarious actions of the Democrats and George Soros are remarkable.
    When the next Presidential election begins to gear up, I wonder just what they
    will create to prevent a Republican victory.

    People "don't feel it" about going to work--better income from unemployment and stimulus checks and welfare programs. Oh, and he "created" about 6M jobs--but how about the millions of jobs lost because of things like shutting down pipelines, drilling, etc for energy. And, now those companies have to increase prices because they are forced to buy much more expensive product from opec and foreign companies. He is so stupid if he thinks American citizens swallow his swill hook like and sinker. As for infrastructure, of the $110B that will go to that--did they take off pelosi's SanFran park for $200M (or was it $200B) before it was passed? I think the citizens should rise and demand resignation, not only of biden and his administration, but of every congressperson who voted for this travesty of a bill. Should have addressed infrastructure ONLY. Surely it could have gotten enough votes to pass on that by itself. Anybody who would be holding out for pork obviously does not have American in mind.
