The White House is reportedly working in cahoots with journalists in a desperate attempt to change the public’s perception of President Joe Biden and his disastrous presidency.
These alleged meetings are being held behind the scenes and are intended to get the president more favorable coverage on things like the supply chain crisis and other economic woes plaguing the U.S. which have contributed to his sinking approval ratings.
CNN’s media newsletter reported:
“The White House, not happy with the news media’s coverage of the supply chain and economy, has been working behind the scenes trying to reshape coverage in its favor. Senior White House and admin officials — including NEC Deputy Directors David Kamin and Bharat Ramamurti, along with Ports Envoy John Porcari — have been briefing major newsrooms over the past week, a source tells me.
The officials have been discussing with newsrooms trends pertaining to job creation, economic growth, supply chains, and more. The basic argument that has been made: That the country’s economy is in much better shape than it was last year. I’m told the conversations have been productive, with anchors and reporters and producers getting to talk with the officials…”
Inflation is a top of mind issue for voters night now, especially as the Biden administration seems hell bent on sending it higher and higher. Experts have warned that thanks to current policy decisions being made, inflation could remain high for many months to come, which poses a serious threat to Democrats’ majorities in Washington, D.C.
NABE Vice President Julia Coronado, the founder and president of MacroPolicy Perspectives, said, “The core consumer price index, which excludes food and energy costs, is now expected to rise 6.0% from the fourth quarter of 2020 to the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to the September forecast of a 5.1% increase over the same period.”
NABE panelists also downgraded their economic growth forecasts for the second NABE survey in a row. The median prediction of inflation-adjusted gross domestic product growth from the end of 2020 to the end of 2021 is now at 4.9% — down from a 5.6% forecast in September and a 6.7% prediction back in May.
Biden’s approval rating is so embarrassingly low that he has had a lower approval rating than every governor in the U.S., and his approval rating has dipped to as low as 18% in one state.
A recent Morning Consult poll revealed that five of the six least popular governors in the U.S. are Democrats, with Oregon Democrat Governor Kate Brown having the lowest approval rating of 43%.
A number of political observers have already predicted a GOP landslide in 2022 throughout the nation as Americans display their disapproval of the Joe Biden presidency.
A Washington Post-ABC News poll released in mid-November found that if the midterms were held today, registered voters would vote for Republican candidates for Congress over the Democrat candidates for Congress by a staggering 10-point margin at 51% to 41%. The Washington Post called the findings a “historically strong result for Republicans.”
The poll stated:
“Evaluating survey results in just eight states expected to have the most competitive Senate races – four currently held by Democrats, four by Republicans – raises further hope for the GOP and risk for the Democratic Party.
In these states – Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – Biden’s overall job approval rating is 33 percent, compared with 43 percent elsewhere. On his handling of the pandemic, his approval is 11 points lower than in the rest of the country…
Residents of these states also are less inclined to back their incumbent House member rather than to look around for someone new to support, 19 vs. 28 percent. And registered voters in these states favor Republicans over Democrats for the House by a 23-point margin, 58-35 percent, vs. 7 points, 49-42 percent, in the rest of the country.”
“70 percent rate the economy negatively, including 38 percent who say it is in ‘poor’ condition,” The Washington Post added.
“About half of Americans overall and political independents blame Biden for fast-rising inflation, and more than 6 in 10 Americans say he has not accomplished much after 10 months in office, including 71 percent of independents.”
The report said that a Democrat strategist who advises the party’s major donors said after the House passed Biden’s massive far-left social spending bill that it was “[t]oo late. We’re f***ed.”
