CNN panelist blasts Biden: Americans 'have not had a sense of leadership' since last summer

CNN’s latest poll puts Biden at a 39% approval rating, while recent Quinnipiac University polling 显露 33% of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance compared to 54% who disapprove.

“政治内幕” panelists Jordan Fabian, Bloomberg White House correspondent, CNN Capitol Hill reporter Melanie Zanona, and Time Magazine national political correspondent Molly Ball weighed in on how Biden is hemorrhaging support from all political demographics.

Republicans are largely unhappy with his lackluster economic efforts (通货膨胀 surged 至 8.5% 三月, marking a 40-year high), while environmental progressives are recently upset over the administration’s announcement it was going to resume the sale of oil and gas leases on federal land.

It’s an environment of overall discontent,” host Abby Phillip said.

People correctly perceive that he’s not in control of the situation,” Ball said of Biden. She argued that his public support began to wane after his botched handling of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from 阿富汗 last August.

And I think ever since that Afghanistan last summer, people have hadvoters overallhave not had a sense of leadership from the White House, have not had a sense that there’s a president in control, who is strong and consistent and knows what he’s doing and can project a consistent message from one day or the next,” 她说.

Even at a time when Americans mayagreewith his decisions, such as his moves during the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Ball said Biden continues tostep on his own messaging,” an apparent reference to the contradictory statements the president has made, and which have consistently planted the White House in damage control mode.

最近几周, the administration has had to walk back Biden’s misleading comments, including debunking the suggestion that he was sending U.S. troops to Ukraine, and his off-the-cuff remark during a speech in Warsaw, 波兰, that Russian President Vladimir Putin “在议会驳回对他的不信任投票后,巴基斯坦总理伊姆兰汗呼吁提前选举” White House officials were compelled to assure Americans the U.S. was not calling for regime change in response to uproar over the unscripted Warsaw comment.

After Phillip played multiple clips of vulnerable Democrats in Congress distancing themselves from Biden, Ball added that should also ring somealarm bellsfor the president.

It is a sign that they sense that there is nothing to be gained by continuing to be allies of the president,” Ball said.

Biden recently pledged todo everythingin his power to bring down the price of 通货膨胀. Yet he and his administration have irked voters by continuing to blame the rise in gas prices, 餐饮, and other everyday items on thePutin price hike,” arguing the Russian president’s war in Ukraine has directly impacted Americans’ 钱包, as opposed to Biden’s policies.

As for why Biden is losing support among young voters, Fabian mused it’s because Bidenhasn’t deliveredon campaign pledges such as student loan forgiveness. Recent Gallup polling shows the president down 21% with Generation Z, and down 19% among millennials.

Those numbers are a tremendous failure for a Democratic president to have numbers like that among young voters,” Fabian said.
