Unicorns, pixie dust, and a bajillion dollars in cash.

Yup.

I didn't know we elected anyone because of "promises". I never have anyway. I'm old enough to remember when no President ever was able to promise anything would happen before he got into office - and most of them promised things they couldn't or didn't deliver.

Biden is doing an okay job in my book.

I think if we had a decent Senate who could get his agenda passed, his approval ratings would be 10-15 points higher. People want him to "do something" without remembering what all it takes to "do something."

I think people are just not happy with the post-pandemic supply chain issues and with Putin attacking Ukraine. So they blame it all on Biden because they have no one else to blame and that doesn't feel very satisfying.

But I think Biden is doing a fine job given the circumstances at hand.

Maybe- but at least his "wishes" don't have malicious intent- like lying to the nation about the seriousness of a pandemic and undercutting the credibility of medical and scientific recommendations because he was afraid it might make him look bad; or inciting an insurrection just because he lost an election. That's progress.

Oh boy, another poll thread. :rolleyes:

Guess what, he'll still be president tomorrow and the next day and so on for the better part of three more years. Just wait, once this Ukraine thing settles down and COVID has been reduced to a minor inconvenience his numbers will rebound bigly his last two years in.

Once the COVID dust settles, military freedom from Afghanistan and the benefits of are fully realized, inflation cools down, and Americans realize the importance of World wide alliance's built by Biden, are far better than trumps world division;

America will look upon Biden with a higher level of appreciation.

Biden will leave the Presidency with much more accomplishment and praise than our last POTUS.

Biden will also leave the Presidency without throwing a complete man child temper tantrum as compared to the last POTUS. And guess what Biden will help fully with transfer of power, because he is a true Statement.

I don't get it. I just don't.
You knew Biden was incompetent when you voted for him. When you add in the reality that the Trump administration was very competent, the comparison gets stark for anyone who is not a Trump hater.

The Daily Mail is an unreliable source for comprehensive facts aka right wing propaganda machine.
Says the guy who quotes CNN.

I knew no such thing. Biden is not incompetent! Certainly not deserving of these kinds of numbers.

Meh.

He's doing better than Trump would be.

And frankly I'm less concerned about what he promised when faced with continuation of Covid and now the Cold War waving at us from the past like a specter as if to say it never really left.

That those numbers are so high shows how effective the media is in delivering their propaganda to willing consumers.

Hence your confusion.

Everyone else can see that the Biden administration is essentially run by a committee with no one person having the final say.

It's worse than that. Biden is making Trump look good in comparison.

Learn how to lie about Trump maybe. You can keep that to yourself.

Biden is to blame for everything since taking office.

Biden is doing a shit job.

The numbers would be higher if there wasn't a right wing propaganda machine manipulating idiots for political purposes.
