Not since Frank “The Tank” Ricard asked: “Is it bad?” after taking a tranquilizer to the jugular, has something so bad, been so painfully obvious. And that’s exactly how things look for President Joe Biden after a ABC News/Washington Post poll found that just 38 percent of Americans approve of the president’s response to recent nation-wide increases in crime.
The poll, released Friday morning, also found that 48 percent of Americans specifically disapprove of Biden’s response. With the “defund the police” ridiculousness still being a phrase that hovers around too many U.S. communities, the number of Americans who feel as though crime is an extremely serious problem has significantly risen. The poll stated that the number of Americans who saw crime as being an extremely serious problem was at 28 percent, which is a 20-year high. If only we had the law enforcement and resources to right that wrong….
One of the largest examples of the nation’s increased crime is New York City, which has seen a dramatic spike in crime since Biden took office. As of late May, New York City had 17.4 percent more murders, 73 percent more shootings and 24.9 percent more car thefts than at the same point in May 2020. Per Fox News.
Though Biden has yet to specifically comment on the eye-popping increased crime numbers or his poor approval rating, chances are he’ll find the ‘good’ within those statistics.
Like Frank “The Tank” Ricard before him, Biden’s headed for divorce if these numbers stick.
