Forty-five percent of independents disapprove of Biden’s coronavirus performance. Forty-four percent of independents supported the president’s response.
Overall, approval of Biden’s “handling of the coronavirus fell for the second consecutive week to a record-low plus-11, with 52 percent of registered voters approving of his performance in containing the spread of the virus and 41 percent disapproving,” according to the poll.
Additionally, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “fell to an all-time low in voter net approval for its handling in containing the spread of the coronavirus at plus-26 (59 percent approve, 33 percent disapprove).”
On Tuesday, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky predictably blamed the unvaccinated, not the CDC, for reinstating mask mandates. Asked why the vaccinated still have to wear masks, White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed it was due to the “transmissibility of the virus.”
Fact check: neither the Biden administration nor the CDC can be trusted for truth about the virus, which has been weaponized politically rom Day One. Even independents are gradually beginning to figure that out.
