An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll out Wednesday noted a record low approval rating for President Joe Biden at just 36 percent approval, his lowest since taking office, with support from independents especially dissipating. A full 58 percent of registered voters disapprove of the president’s job, with 44 percent strongly disapproving.
Nearly half of registered independent voters — 46 percent to be exact — say they “strongly disapprove” of the job Biden is doing, combined with 19 percent who simply said they “disapprove” of his performance for a total disapproval rating of more than 65 percent from independents. That’s a huge shift from a year ago when nearly half of independents approved of Biden. Now, only 28 percent approve.
Biden’s 36 percent approval rating from voters overall reflects a 4 percent slip since the end of June. With only 12 percent of voters saying they “strongly approve” of the job he is doing, almost four times that number “strongly disapprove,” at 44 percent.
Even PBS had to admit that “Biden’s numbers are trending more negative than any other modern president in a midterm cycle, according to 538’s tracking of approval rating polling averages.”
Another NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll from April 2022 gathered that independents favor Republican candidates over Democrat candidates by 7 percentage points (45 percent compared to 38 percent) ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The poll noted that pluralities of Americans think Republicans are better equipped to deal with a plurality of issues, such as the economy and inflation, gun laws, and curbing crime.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
