Let's admit it: It was really hard to get jazzed up about Joe Biden in the first place.
If you voted for him, it was probably solely because he was a foil to Donald Trump rather than anything having to do with his qualifications.
Biden's mortifying poll numbers really seem to confirm that:
February's Quinnipiac poll shows that just 37% of registered voters approve of Biden's performance in office, while an eye-popping 56% disapprove. Biden's approval rating among Hispanics sits at 36%, with 49% disapproving. He is underwater with women and barely breaking even with college-educated white women.
CNN's most recent poll was even worse. It showed 58% disapproving of how Biden has fared as president, with 41% registering their approval. Among independents, Biden's approval rating was just 36%. Of the respondents who disapproved, 56% couldn't think of a single positive thing to say. The 1 in 4 who approved said much the same thing.
I mean...what can you say about these sorts of results?
It's worth noting that the RealClearPolitcs average of people who "see the country moving in the right direction" is about a 64/28 negative split, with those numbers growing even more in certain polls:
Some individual surveys are worse still. An NBC News poll pegged the split at 72% wrong track, 50 points greater than those who picked right track. Gallup's numbers for "satisfaction with the way things are going in U.S." is near a 40-year low.
But hey...at least President Trump isn't tweeting out mean stuff, right??
We have that at least, right??
