It’s hard to find a major newspaper more in the tank for the Democratic Party than the Boston Globe but even they acknowledge less than half of Massachusetts voters approve of Joe Biden.
Here’s the Globe’s headline: “In 2020, Biden was a political juggernaut in Massachusetts. A new poll shows voters have soured on him. A lot.”
The article acknowledges that Biden’s approval is tanking even in Massachusetts. From the article:
“In March 2020, President Biden swept through Massachusetts’ Democratic primary with a come-from-behind Super Tuesday victory. He later topped Donald Trump by 33 ½ percentage points here, his second-largest margin of victory in November. Few places lean more Democratic than Massachusetts, according to political forecasters. But even in this deep blue stronghold, Biden has fallen hard. Just 46 percent of registered Massachusetts voters say they approve of the job Biden is doing as president, with about the same proportion giving him a thumbs down, according to a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll.”
Biden’s approval among Massachusetts Democrats is only 75 percent.
You’d have to search pretty hard to find a news outlet that more closely hews to the Democratic line than the Boston Globe. The Los Angeles Times and Minneapolis Star Tribune come to mind. But the list is pretty short.
If even the Boston Globe acknowledges that voters dislike the job that Biden is doing, he must be doing a very, very bad job.
Of course, rather than fix things in the country, Democrats look to fix the results of elections.
From the comments is a post that typifies Massachusetts Democrat thinking:
SAD04 (5/01/22 – 3:27PM) “I don’t think the polls capture what has happened. Democratic voters want Trump indicted. They want democracy restored. They want DC statehood. They want more legislation–which Manchin and Sinema have blocked. Voting rights guaranteed. They don’t want to live under the threat of a GOP return.”
So according to this line of thinking the “restoration of democracy” means one party control (i.e., no “threat of GOP return”). That’s the authoritarian mindset that pervades the modern Democratic Party. It is the same mindset that gave rise to the Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board or pushes for more censorship in social media.
If Democrats and Joe Biden did what the voters want, their approval level would rise, plain and simple. The reason that the public is dissatisfied with their performance is that they are not doing what is in the public interest.
