It’s not just the ridiculous statement about the border by White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki. And it’s not just about tanking job approval numbers for President Biden. It’s about America saying no thanks to the Biden agenda.
The ABC News/Ipsos poll, which was conducted using Ipsos’ KnowledgePanel, found that a plurality (32%) of Americans think the bills would hurt people like them if they became law, while fewer (25%) think it would help them. Nearly 2 in 10 (18%) think the bills would make no difference, and 24% said they didn’t know.
Even among Democrats alone, fewer than half (47%) think the two bills would help people like them. A quarter of Democrats think the bills would make no difference for people like them and about 2 in 10 (22%) don’t know how they would impact their lives. Nearly two-thirds (64%) of Republicans think the bills would hurt people like them, and so do about 3 in 10 (29%) independents.
At what point will Mr. Biden acknowledge his failure? Perhaps Tuesday night/Election Night in Virginia?
