As Twitchy reported, the latest RealClearPolitics polling average has President Joe Biden at a new low of 40.9 percent, and it shows no signs of turning around soon. CNN’s Edward-Isaac Dovere has a lengthy piece on CNN’s website Wednesday talking about how Biden is leaving Democrats hanging as the midterm elections approach. It’s certainly no hit piece on Biden, but it does seem like a fair look at what’s going on with this White House. Josh Kraushaar zeroed in on one of the most brutal takeaways:
“Focus groups are giving party operatives nightmares. Biden is coming across as old and absent, they say. Real and perceived fumbles play into deep fears that he's not up to the job and that Democrats are incompetent.” https://t.co/FjY9XwNjMA

“In three dozen exclusive interviews with CNN,” Dovere writes, “top Democratic politicians, campaign officials and operatives say the White House political operation is heading into the midterms unprepared and unresponsive even to basic requests for help or information.”
I'd say the focus groups are pretty perceptive. pic.twitter.com/ODsE0rq7XR

You mean the focus groups are confirming what we told everyone two years ago?

So the focus groups see everything the rest of us see. Got it.

It’s not a perception; Biden doesn’t have a clue

I think the Focus groups, aka the voters, are clearly seeing the real fumbles and realizing that the Democrats are incompetent and are having to face the possible nightmare of choosing to stay with Biden or going back to Trump!

Who is stage managing this non-stop toxic dumpster fire of failure? Obviously the "old & incompetent" POTUS needs competent advisers & handlers & Klain & Co ain't that, clearly. The 365-day long clusterfark that is this West Wing needs a total overhaul.

Imagine the nightmares if journalists actually did their jobs and criticized this administration like Republican ones….

It’s a great point … unlike President Trump, Biden has the full support of the mainstream media, although even that began to crumble as the debacle in Afghanistan played out and reporters couldn’t ignore it anymore.
Not sure you can name any "perceived" fumbles. They're all real. Furthermore, intentionally abandoning U.S. citizens to terrorists is not a "fumble". It is gross malfeasance.

Americans have failed Joe Biden

Says Joe Biden.
Again, this is a lengthy, well-researched piece; it’s not a hit on Biden at all. Democratic operatives on the ground are just wondering what the plan is to turn things around before November.
CNN panel diagnoses Biden admin’s messaging challenge as being that Americans don’t realize how good things really are https://t.co/pQICJRIB07
