The ship is sinking rapidly for Joe Biden.
After less than a year at the helm, things just went from bad to worse for Biden.
And it’s all thanks to CNN.
Joe Biden is officially handling the American economy worse than even Jimmy Carter did, according to a new poll conducted by no other than CNN.
The fact that far-Left CNN shows that Biden’s approval rating currently sits in the dirt is telling, and indicates that things could possibly be even worse than they appear for the nation’s top Democrat.
CNN reports, “President Joe Biden is struggling in the minds of the American public. While his approval rating is down on a slew of issues, his difficulties are perhaps most noticeable on the economy. Biden now sports the lowest net economic rating of any president at this point through their first term since at least Jimmy Carter in 1977.”
Carter was notorious for leading the country through some of the worst performing economic years ever recorded in America, and he has gone down in history for his horrendous mismanagement of the economic situation he drove the country into.
Ultimately, Carter’s handling on the economy made him a one-term president, and he ultimately lost re-election in a catastrophic defeat to Ronald Reagan due to his inability to turn things around.
Now, Biden’s own handling on the economy appears to be even worse than Jimmy Carter, which should be sending off alarm bells across the country for Democrats.
“In the latest CNN/SSRS poll, Biden comes in with a 44% approval rating to 55% disapproval rating among registered voters on his economic performance. This makes for a -9 point net approval rating. The average of all polls taken in December is quite similar with Biden at -13 points on the economy,” adds CNN.
“To put that in perspective, the average president at this point in the last 44 years (since we have been polling on the topic) had a net economic approval rating of +5 points. That means Biden’s is 18 points worse than the average.”
This is a stunning set of numbers, and it suggests that Biden is one of the most deeply unpopular presidents in modern history when it comes to his handling of the economy.
Traditionally, the president’s handling of the economy is directly correlated to whether or not they win re-election.
And if this CNN poll is even remotely accurate, it suggests that Biden is well on track to getting completely destroyed in 2024.
“Notably, Biden’s net rating is worse than his two immediate predecessors, Barack Obama in December 2009 and Donald Trump in December 2017. Both Obama and Trump had net approval ratings on the economy of -4 points,” adds CNN.
Making matters worse for Biden, the economy remains the top issue for most voters, with a recent Monmouth poll from December showing that the economy – and inflation in particular – is the top issue for over 40% of voters, with only 28% of Americans approving of Biden’s handling of the economic inflationary crisis.
