The poll comes after the President addressed Congress to further radical social welfare programs and packages, receiving the lowest ratings in years for any president.
Preliminary data showed nearly 75 percent fewer Americans watched Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday compared to former President Trump’s first address in 2017. About 11.6 million viewers viewed the speech, according to Nielsen’s initial ratings data.Breitbart’s Matt Boyle also reported Sunday Biden has the lowest approval “rating of any modern president at this point in his presidency, excluding former Presidents Donald Trump and Gerald Ford.”Meanwhile, police departments, which have been under scrutiny due to social unrest, endure calls for defunding from celebrities:
