Even though the Biden White House touted the signing of the infrastructure bill as a big win for this administration, the president’s approval rating keeps on dropping. Here’s the latest:
Bottom continues to fall for Biden, in new NPR/Marist poll:
“Biden's approval is down to 42%, the lowest recorded in the survey since Biden took office.” https://t.co/nQkydVojp8

With that, CNN to the rescue! Panelists discussed Biden’s lousy approval even though things, they say, are going fairly well. There’s also blame assigned to corporate greed for being part of the reason prices are up, which Biden’s wrongly taking the blame for, according to this discussion:
Joe Biden is the president, but CNN seems to think that it’s “not quite fair” to hold him accountable for the economic failures of his administration. https://t.co/y4Ytgyjbox

this is genuinely CNN's takeaway on Biden's terrible polling on inflation: Democrats have a "challenge" in "messaging their agenda" because Americans apparently just don't understand how good they have it. pic.twitter.com/eYDfqsbCbg

Here’s part of the exchange, via Newsbusters:
KING: But if you look at these numbers, 5.6 million jobs created since Joe Biden became president, the unemployment rate is 4.6 percent. Disposable income is up two percent. There are positive economic indicators out there, but it’s very hard for a president or his party to sound ‘hey you’re fine’ when people are feeling pain.
FOX: Well, and that’s the delicate balance of going out and selling something like the infrastructure bill or going out and selling this big social safety net bill because you might be able to argue, “look at all these projects coming into your community,” but people might think to themselves, but what about my family? What about the fact that when I go to the store milk costs more than it did two weeks ago?
“Disposable income is up two percent”? How much is inflation up?
They think people are so stupid that they forgot what life was like before March 2020.
Although even that wouldn't help Biden – more people have died from COVID this year than last year.

However, things on CNN might change eventually:
The push by the new CEO to have the channel return to journalism is not taking place fast enough. https://t.co/UrVuqSvB6P
