That's not going to bother Trump at all <snert>.
 
2021-01-25 4:59:36 PM  
I bet at least 30 percent of that is simply for not being Trump

Bold prediction time: Biden's approval rating will never dip below 50%.

/will almost certainly not be the case.

Statistically speaking, some of the people who say they approve of Biden voted for Trump, and I do not understand those people one whit.

If Uncle Joe just focuses on the basics he'll be fine, the basics being COVID, infrastructure, fixing stuff Trump broke.

Yeah, but did you see that inauguration? There were maybe 100 people there max. So lame compared to 2017.

Bet it would have been even higher if he had followed through on his "$2000 checks will go out the door immediately" promise rather than morphing it into "maybe $1400 checks will go out the door in a few months, unless the GOP negotiates me down to a lower number" thing that it seems to be now.

Biden is doing some good stuff, absolutely, and not being Trump is in itself a lot, but there is stuff I think he is doing wrong, like playing too nice with insurrectionists in the name of unity and not sticking to simple promises he made that would please everyone (except for the GOP, who don't want demonstrations of government actually helping people and making their lives better).

Every time I see any article about a poll, I know Turd Blossom (so named because he could reiterate polling language to achieve a ±15% difference for any wedge issue in play) swims in those waters and ups his consulting fee another notch.

Failing to ignore polls was a major component of Hillary losing to Trump. Rove hunts every modifier in the English language to conflate and obfuscate meaningful policy and his techniques are becoming a standard.

Trump got more votes in 2020 (74.2 million) than 2016 (62.9 million). So I am not sure there were that many people who switched. I think it was a lot of people who were turned off by Hillary and didn't vote then horrified by Trump.
 
2021-01-25 11:01:19 PM  
That proves that there obviously was massive fraud during the election, because there is no way that the guy with an approval rating barely twice as high as Trump's could possibly have won from him.

/This is what "stop the steal" derpers actually believe

I wanted him to repeal Trump's bullshiat policies, and he's doing it, so as long as the trend continues I'll be satisfied.

Having an adult in the White House is something we can't ever take for granted again. Not ever. The gentleman's agreement that the President of the United States wouldn't be a malicious, chaos-acting dumbass which existed since George Washington's time no longer exists. Trump sharted all over that, and the office itself.  He has diluted even the worst misdeeds of his predecessors with his oafish, immature behavior, and his embarrassing coup attempt. Now the government has to build trust, and Biden has to make people believe in an office and a role that people aren't too keen on right now. It's a terrible shame that Trump has done so much damage to the office itself that some people don't even believe Biden is the legitimate President. But the good thing is Biden is not a fragile baby like his predecessor. He is not occupied with other stupid shiat, like golf or twitter. He is in the office to do the work of a President, period.

Someone tell the GOP that killing a half-million Americans and ransacking the Capitol isn't good for public relations.
 
2021-01-25 11:05:42 PM  
If Biden accomplishes a smooth vaccine rollout, healthier economy that uplifts the working class AND middle class and either a) immigration reform or b) healthcare reform; his approval rating will not go below 50%.
 
2021-01-25 11:07:06 PM  
He did anything about Coronavirus so he's outperformed what Trump did over about 10 months in less than a week.
 
2021-01-25 11:07:08 PM  
Just a reminder Trump never got above 50%


And that was polling just his family.

Obama got a Nobel Peace prize for not being a Bush, the least Biden can do is get a decent rating.

He's actually competent, press secretary isn't screaming about how bit his inauguration audience was...
Actual response for a pandemic that has taken over 400k American lives...etc...

I've always liked Biden, but this is beyond what I even expected.  And even though 1/3 of Americans are bat shiat insane, the other 2/3 know good management when they see it.

They pay no real attention to what is going on and as long as their situation does not diminish or if it improves then they like the guy who is president right now.
 
2021-01-25 11:23:35 PM  
That's just the rebound effect from Tromp trying to grift a country. Not the people, the actual country. It would make what's her name from that show with Parker blush.

You can't have a 63% percent approval rating when the other person got 47% of the vote without some overlap*.

*okay, technically you can, because not everyone voted and 74 million people is only ~33% of the voting-age populace. So if literally every other eligible voter in the US approved of Biden he could have a 67% approval rating, but that is highly unlikely, since there are probably pro-Trump voters who didn't vote and given how surveys work.
 
2021-01-25 11:30:30 PM  
To be fair Biden is not a scumbag.
 
2021-01-25 11:41:09 PM  
Not Trump was a great candidate, and a good president. I did not vote for Biden. I voted for Not Trump. Subtle difference.

So Joe is Not Trump the Honeymoon grace period, as mentioned. He has done more in under a week for us and not to us, and yea, not Trump, it';s hard to say enough about that.

63% of 941 people from an online poll, I know the stats people are always behind this but they really just seem pointless

Came here to say pretty much the same.  Pulling away the football with the $2,000 check promise is not a good look, and people will remember it.

Though it's nice to think how Trump must be burning up with every bit of positive news about Biden, I'd rather not think about Trump at all.

I'm sure there will be plenty of things President Biden does that I'll disagree with. But can I trust that he'll do them for the good of our nation, not to line his family's pockets or stick it to people who don't support him.
