New polling shows Americans have soured on President Joe Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic:
For the first time in his presidency, Joe Biden faces a trust deficit among Americans when it comes to COVID-19, according to the latest Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index. https://t.co/n5tBtpH7Ef

And this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone as the messaging from Team Joe has been AWFUL:
‘If you’re vaccinated you don’t have to wear a mask. Just kidding mask up!’
‘Who’s gonna take the shot?” Actually if you don’t take the shot you’ll lose your job.’
‘We’ll get back to normal at 70% vaccinated. Wait, I really mean 97%.’
Wonder why people don’t trust the guy. https://t.co/CRiRWQzilQ

Case in point, here’s CDC Director Rochelle Walensky refusing to say when we’ll be able to ditch masks:
Shepard Smith to Dr. Rochelle Walinsky: "Are masks with us for a long long time? Years? Forever?"
Response: "I do hope … we will one day be able to get rid of those masks."

Does Wallensky understand how bad this sounds?
People in my mentions: people just need to get vaccinated and we can drop the masks.
CDC director Walensky: "People who have had two doses of the vaccine, they still need to wear their mask." https://t.co/PMGkhXk1dy

Their messaging is awful.

And this, too:
It's beyond messaging. Their priorities are warped.

And one of the major issues is that this fear is being generated by vaccinated people who are the ones who should be feeling safer right now:
