Gallup Poll: Joe Biden’s Favorability Rating Sinks as Low as His Recent Incoherant Attacks


Uncle Joe underwater with favorability/unfavoribility with “We the People”.

What are the odds that there is a correlation between Vice President Joe Biden’s sudden “unfavoribility” and his incoherent rants and attacks on Mitt Romney and Bain Capital at the bequest of the Obama reelect campaign? According to a recent Gallup poll,  Biden suddenly finds himself with a all time low of 42% and a 45% unfavoribility. Most glaring in the Gallup poll is that Independents have a 37/47 favorability of Biden.

Americans are about equally likely to have a favorable (42%) as an unfavorable (45%) view of Joe Biden, which has been the case for most of his tenure as U.S. vice president. Americans were much more positive than negative toward Biden from the time he was chosen as Barack Obama’s running mate through the first several months of the Obama administration.

The May 10-13 USA Today/Gallup poll marks the first time opinions of Biden have tilted negative since he became Obama’s vice presidential pick, but they are not materially different from the closely divided but still net positive ratings of Biden from October 2009-March 2011.

As The Weekly Standard asks, how does a negative favorability help Obama in 2012? However, the reason why Biden has an underwater “favorability rating” is because of Obama and his scorched earth 2012 reelect theme.  The more Obama and Biden attack capitalism and what made America great, the more people are really beginning to question what these two are all about. Both Obama and attack dog Biden are coming off as angry as all they can do is divide and rant about others as they certainly cannot run on their record.

Making matters even worse, Biden not popular in swing states either. Much buzz has been made that Biden should be replaced and Hillary Clinton added to the Obama 2012 Presidential ticket. Never going to happen. Barack Obama would never admit that his image could be dragged down by Biden and would certainly never admit he needed Bill & Hillary’s help for reelection. Obama is all in with Biden.

In the 12 swing states likely to determine the outcome of the presidential election, only 40% of registered voters view Biden favorably, while 54% view him unfavorably. These numbers are worse than President Obama’s who is seen favorably by 50% of registered voters in those same states and unfavorably by 49%.

The 12 swing states in the poll are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. These states are all considered too close to call for the November election.

      Barry, Joe, and the entire assemblage of clowns
      in this regime are garish and hollow folks that
      do not live up to the offices they occupy. The
      cheapness and dishonesty we observe from them
      seems like some kind of nightmare that we hope to
      awaken from in the morning.

      White House Stands by Biden Statement That Taliban Isn’t U.S. Enemy
      Published December 19, 2011

      The White House on Monday defended Vice President Joe Biden for saying that the Taliban isn’t an enemy of the United States despite the years spent fighting the militant Islamic group that gave a home to Al Qaeda and its leader Usama bin Laden while he plotted the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

      Biden said that the U.S. is on a dual track in Afghanistan — keep the pressure on Al Qaeda and support a government that is strong enough to “negotiate with and not be overthrown by the Taliban.”

      “Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical,” Biden said. “There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy, because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.”

      Sen. Joe Biden is the best argument that I can think of making for term limits.

      Does any one find it just down right scary that this guy is next in line to take over if anything ever happened to Obama?

      The MSM made such an issue about Palin, yet this unhinged insanoid is a heart beat away. YIKES!!!

      House speaker Boehner would be next.

      Honestly, did his comments make sense to anyone?

      Maybe it did to some democratic county chairman (pc version –chairperson), but I’ve known a few, and they are all nut jobs.
