Biden's congressional address bombed in ratings and the poll touting 85% approval turned out to be a "largely Democratic audience"
· Apr 30, 2021 ·

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the most popular president in American history:

When the ratings report first came out, it looked even worse for Biden (11.6 million). Some outlets have Biden at 22.6 million vs. Trump's 43 million in 2017, while others have 26.9 million for Biden vs. 47.7 million for Trump.

Regardless, you're looking at nearly a 50% dip in ratings – and this for Biden's first major congressional address.

This was also important:

"Nielsen reported that the bulk of Biden's audience — 18.5 million — were 55 and older. The figures include out of home viewing."

Despite major promotion of his speech by the media and widespread coverage on 16 networks (not to mention internet platforms), the man with the most votes in U.S. history had a shockingly poor performance as he told us how he's going to spend another $1.8 trillion.

Another thing to note is how the media treated the speech, praising it directly and touting out an 85% approval rating among viewers.

For those who called an Orwellian foul, it came to light that the viewers were heavily Democrat:

I mean, when Snopes has to fact-check the Left, you know it's bad!

What does this mean for Biden? I'll leave that conclusion up to you!
