Biden Approval Rating Tanks to Record Lows, But You Wouldn’t Know It From Watching the News  


President Joe Biden, whose 2020 election victory was garnered after earning more votes than any candidate in history, has seen his approval ratings tank as of late to abysmal lows.

But you wouldn’t know it from watching the friendly cable news networks.

Last week, a USA Today/Suffolk University poll revealed that just 38% of Americans approve of President Biden’s job performance just one year after his historic election, while 64% of Americans don’t want him to run for reelection in 2024.

This includes 30% of Democrats who think he shouldn’t seek a second term.

However, as LifeNews reported, the nation’s major news outlets didn’t consider these rather remarkably bad polling numbers to be worthy of note last week.

“On Sunday, the CBS Weekend News and World News Tonight avoided the very bad news for Biden. (NBC’s Nightly News did not air.) On Monday, NBC’s Today, ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS Mornings all skipped it,” the pro-life website noted. “That’s a combined seven hours of possible air time.”

On Monday, CBS Mornings merely mentioned the poll numbers in passing, as Nancy Cordes vaguely noted that Democrats were hoping the recently passed infrastructure deal was “going to help shore up some of the President’s poll numbers after the party took a series of hits in state elections last week.”

Over on ABC News, Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos opened the program by touting Biden’s “trillion-dollar” budget legislation victory.

LifeNews notes that the USA Today/Suffolk University poll is no minor poll; it’s a major source of important political data and presidential approval ratings that is routinely cited by major media outlets.

Over on right-leaning Fox News, Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy noted that the polling data was not only bad for Biden, it was nearly the lowest approval rating ever seen by a U.S. president.

“Brand new poll from USA Today and Suffolk puts his approval rating at 38 percent. It’s the lowest rating of any modern president history in history, except as they note, the former president Donald Trump,” Doocy explained.

The Media Research Center, which tracks news coverage of presidencies, noted that the disparity of how the Trump and Biden administrations have been covered is noteworthy.

“MRC analysts looked at the morning and evening broadcast news programs from August 1, 2021 to October 25, 2021 for Biden vs. August 1, 2017 to October 25 2017 for Trump. While ABC, CBS and NBC mentioned Donald Trump’s unpopularity 37 times, they only noted the rapidly dropping numbers for Biden 19 times,” they explained.
