CNN Report Pulls No Punches – WATCH

President Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue to plummet, according to a new Monmouth University Poll. The numbers paint a bleak picture for the Biden administration, with approval ratings as low as 26 percent on immigration and 28 percent on inflation. This comes at a critical time, as both issues are likely to dominate the political landscape leading up to the 2024 election.

Even CNN, a network often criticized for liberal bias, took a surprisingly critical tone in its coverage of the poll. Anchor Dana Bash stated, “You look at the issues and how he fares, infrastructure, jobs, climate change, inflation, immigration, he is down 26%. That is not good. It’s not good at all.”

The numbers are particularly concerning for the Biden administration, as they represent significant drops in approval ratings across various domains, including infrastructure, jobs, and climate change. To try and mitigate the criticism, the Biden administration has recently made diplomatic efforts in Mexico, hoping to demonstrate regional cooperation on immigration issues.

But this may not be enough, as even Democratic mayors in major cities have expressed their frustration with the handling of the migrant crisis. They are calling for more federal support to manage the influx of migrants, directly challenging the administration’s current approach.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, said, “We cannot continue to do the federal government’s job.” He added, “Without significant intervention from the federal government, this mission will not be sustained.”

This criticism from Democratic leaders adds to the pressure on the Biden administration to make significant policy changes, particularly in light of the successful political strategy used by red states in shifting the migrant crisis to blue states. This tactic has strained resources and political capital in these cities and could impact the 2024 election if not addressed.

“This seems to be what’s driving public opinion. There is political danger in pushing a message that basically tells people their take on their own situation is wrong,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

Even CNN analyst Chris Cillizza acknowledged the difficult position Biden is in, saying, “The Biden administration keeps touting their infrastructure investments and a host of positive economic indicators. Those data points may be factual, but most Americans are still smarting from higher prices caused by post-pandemic inflation.”

The network also pointed out that Biden’s current approval ratings fall short of those of former President Donald Trump, with only three out of ten Americans believing that the current president is adequately addressing the issues that matter most to them.

The pressure is on for Biden to make significant policy compromises, as his current approach is not resonating with the majority of Americans. And with the 2024 election on the horizon, the president will need to turn things around quickly if he hopes to secure a second term.
