According to the Political Aspie daily tracker, approximately 53% of Americans approve of the President’s job performance. That’s a slight uptick from yesterday. Approximately 42% disapprove of the job that Biden is doing as President. 2 new polls that I have factored into the average are the Reuters/Ipsos poll and this mornings Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking poll.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll showed President Biden enjoying a job approval of 53%, while having a disapproval of 42%. The Rasmussen survey gives the President a job approval of 49% and a disapproval of 49%
The White House welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel yesterday in what will be her final D.C. visit as Chancellor. Merkel has announced that she will be leaving the Chancellor after September’s German Bundstag elections. The purpose of Merkels visit, as she stated was to firm up the “framework conditions” of democracy.
Merkel’s center-right Christian Democratic Union continues to lead in polls on the September Bundestag elections, though the German Green Party under the leadership of Annalena Baerbock is showing some surprising strength in second.
The German Bundestag elections are set to be held on September 26th.
The Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, yesterday, called anti-vax misinformation an “urgent threat to public health.” The present surge of the new Delta Variant is primarily in states that voted for Donald Trump and among the unvaccinated. Polls continue to show high vaccine hesitancy among Republicans and Trump supporters, rather ironically, given that vaccine was successfully manufactured and approved under the Trump Administration.
The Vaccines are safe and effective and they save lives.
