The American economy is so bad under Joe Biden that even CNN can’t ignore it anymore.
The liberal, anti-Trump network is now reporting that Biden’s economic ratings are worse than those of former President Jimmy Carter, who was voted out of office after just one term.
You know things are bad if CNN is saying this.
Biden’s economic ratings are worse than Carter’s
President Joe Biden is struggling in the minds of the American public. While his approval rating is down on a slew of issues, his difficulties are perhaps most noticeable on the economy.
Biden now sports the lowest net economic rating of any president at this point through their first term since at least Jimmy Carter in 1977.
In the latest CNN/SSRS poll, Biden comes in with a 44% approval rating to 55% disapproval rating among registered voters on his economic performance. This makes for a -9 point net approval rating. The average of all polls taken in December is quite similar with Biden at -13 points on the economy.
To put that in perspective, the average president at this point in the last 44 years (since we have been polling on the topic) had a net economic approval rating of +5 points. That means Biden’s is 18 points worse than the average…
Notably, Biden’s net rating is worse than his two immediate predecessors, Barack Obama in December 2009 and Donald Trump in December 2017. Both Obama and Trump had net approval ratings on the economy of -4 points.
Did you think you’d ever hear this from CNN?
Joe Biden has surpassed Jimmy Carter on becoming the worst President in United States history.
And we are only a year in.

Biden's dark and incoherent speech makes Jimmy Carter's "malaise" speech look like a walk in the park.

Is CNN just trying to clear the way for a different Democrat to run in 2024?
