Biden Scores Higher than Congress, Supremes, Cassidy Crashes and Burns

 Althouse notes an oddity, "Biden With Higher Approval Than US Congress & Supreme Court."

"The latest Emerson College Polling national survey of US voters finds..."
....a majority disapprove of President Biden, Congress, and the Supreme Court. Biden has a 40% job approval, while 53% disapprove of the job he is doing as president. Since last month, Biden’s approval has increased two points. The US Congress has a 19% job approval, while 70% disapprove of the job they are doing. The Supreme Court has a 36% job approval; 54% disapprove.
That's a very nice way to deliver Biden's low approval rating. Everyone else is even less popular.

I believe any residual popularity for Biden is the result of the "sunk costs" fallacy. Congress deserves it's low approval, and, as for the Supreme Court, their job is not to please people. At RCP, David Axelrod: There Is This Sense That Things Are Out Of Control And Biden Isn’t In Command. At Haut Hair, AllahPundit whines about Axelrod: There's a sense that things are out of control and Biden's not in command. At Wa Free Bee, Who’s In Charge,? "Biden's drift and weakness." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 07.01.22, the Victory Girls wonder Are Democrats Losing Confidence In Biden? At Breitbart, Jon Voight Calls for Impeachment of Joe Biden: ‘He Has Wronged This Nation’s Glory. I don't put much stock in celebrities, but he has a point. Paul Bedard at WaEx thinks Voters are itching to punish Washington on border crisis, 67% fail Biden. David Harsany opines that Democrats Are Fooling Themselves on the Popularity of Abortion. Stephen Kapustka at Am Spec reports No Dem Bounce from Roe Repeal: Emerson Poll, "Voters continue to disapprove of Biden and favor Republicans." Capt. Ed at Haut Hair reports on Midterm blues: Greens about to abandon Beltway Democrats? "“We don’t have to pretend anymore,” said one activist." However, G Elliot Morris claims An analysis claiming one million voters switched to the GOP last year was fatally flawed

From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 07.01.22, The Geller Reports Trump Still Winning Big In Polls Despite Jan. 6 ‘Witch Hunt.” At Election Central, Will Trump Launch His 2024 Presidential Campaign on July 4? "Unlikely, but anything's possible with Trump." AllahPundit wonders Are you ready for "Ready for Ron"? "It’s probably Mike Pence who’s behind it. You know how devious he is." OAN, Fla. Gov. Ron DeSantis Gaining Popularity As Front Runner For Oval Office In 2024. Politico reports that the W.H. takes aim at DeSantis — even as Florida slips away from Dems, "And funds from national donor groups have dried up."

Wa Free Bee, These House Dems Are a Rubber Stamp for Biden’s Agenda. They’re Trying To Distance Themselves From the President Anyway. Capt. Ed cites a CBS/YouGov poll: Beto still doing about as well as you'd think after Uvalde stunt. At Da Caller, Rust Belt Democrats Silent On Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Endorsements. Sister Toldja at Red State thinks Liz Cheney’s Reputation Rehab Tour Flounders Badly During Stop at Reagan Library. At Da Caller, Dem State Senate Candidate Invites Republicans To Her Next Gyno Visit. Umm no, just post it on line. KT at Haut Hair reports on Democrat congresswoman among 180 arrested during D.C. abortion ruling protest. Judy Chu, Wash. Clearly a dangerous insurrectionist. Lock her up and throw away the key.

On Tuesday, many primary races took place across the country, including in Colorado, where Democrats made news for meddling in Republican primaries, a move in violation of state and federal law, which backfired terribly. Overall, Democrats looked to have spent what looks to be $14 million, including an estimated $10 million in the Senate race.

Through several different channels, Democrats attempted to meddle in races for governor, as well as U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. Each one of the candidates that they attempted to prop up lost.

I expect Merrick Garland, and his FBI and DOJ will get right on this. Tim Young @TimRunsHisMouth, "You know how I know Trump wasn't on Ghislaine Maxwell's list? It wasn't leaked." KMBC News, Missouri enacts photo voter ID law before November elections ""What you’re trying to do is take us back to Jim Crow,” Democratic Rep. LaKeySha Bosley said during debate last month."

What? Wrong Cassidy? Drew Allen at Town Hall claims The J6 Committee Promised a Bombshell But Delivered a Dud.  Jeff Lord at Am Spec, The Credibility of the January 6 Committee Implodes, "Secret Service refutes “star” witness Cassidy Hutchinson." The redoubtable Julie Kelly at Am Great, NeverTrump Hearts Cassidy, "NeverTrump is up to its old tricks: bashing Trump, berating his supporters, and cheering his latest nemeses who almost always end up as farcical as NeverTrumpers themselves. " I&I, When Small People (Like Cassidy Hutchison) Have Big Moments. Victory Girls covers how The Washington Post Runs Cover for Cassidy Hutchinson’s Trainwreck of Testimony. At Twitchy, ‘What a POOR justification’: Brit Hume goes SCORCHED EARTH on January 6 Committee Hearings and their defenders and just wow. Nick Arama at Red State, Adam Kinzinger Can’t Handle It When Brit Hume Serves up Some Truth About the J6 Committee and accuses the Secret Service of lying to protect Trump. It's a shame he'll be out of a job soon, amIright? AllahPundit proudly publishes The dubious "Trump reaching for the steering wheel on January 6" video. You can't see a damn thing. At WaEx, Former Trump staffer says she put Hutchinson in touch with Cheney Alyssa Farah Griffin. From Madeleine Hubbard at JTN, Donald Trump questions why Jan. 6 witness Hutchinson isn't prosecuted for lying under oath, "If I was so evil, why did she fight so hard to stay a part of the MAGA TEAM? This is all documented in writing!" Politico, New details of Jan. 6 panel's mystery messages emerge, Former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson told the committee she was contacted by an intermediary for Mark Meadows, according to a person familiar with her final deposition.   At WaPoo, cited by MSN, How Trump World pressures witnesses to deny his possible wrongdoing. At CNN, Hutchinson was one of the witnesses Trump world sought to influence, sources say, proposing to charge him with 'witness tampering.' But as Althouse questions Is it wrong to confront the witnesses against you?

Insty, IT’S A SHOW TRIAL, BUT THE SHOW HAS LOUSY WRITERS AND CHEAP PRODUCTION VALUES: Byron York: The Jan. 6 committee charade. “This is very serious, Cheney said, but I won’t tell you anything else. In what way is that the purpose of a congressional investigating committee?” I'm shocked the WaPoo published this opinion by Gary Abernathy, The Jan. 6 committee’s zeal to impugn Trump is in danger of backfiring
Never have we seen such a scripted production masquerading as a congressional hearing. Narration and questions are carefully read from a teleprompter. The witnesses even appear to have been coached to pause at specific points to await the next prepackaged query. While chair Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) and vice chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) do the heavy lifting, other committee members sit in zombie-like silence, unless it’s a day designated for one of them to perform, too.

The unsinkable Mollie Hemingway at Da Fed, The J6 Show Trial Is Lying About Election ‘Fraud’, "The January 6 show trial is partly about persecuting political opponents. But it’s also about covering up the truth of the 2020 election." Dan Gelernter at AM Great, Trump Is the Greatest Man Alive "What leftist, on the verge of losing his power in Washington, and yet possessed of the means of retaining it through violence, would have walked away as Trump did?" Chilton Williamson at Spec World (cited at Haut Hair thinks Liz Cheney is the GOP’s worst enemy "Yet in her unhinged, monomaniacal efforts to destroy Donald Trump Liz Cheney has probably gone too far even for the establishment wing of the GOP by aiding and abetting Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party in their months-long attempt to discredit the Republican Party as a whole — not Trump alone — by staging a very public partisan circus calculated to reverse the Republicans’ advantage in the coming midterm elections."

At NYPo, Pro-abortion protesters target Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s home. Where is Merrick Garland? At HE, Jack Posobiec: Biden Has Weaponized the FBI and DOJ Against His Political Opponents— The GOP Needs To End It. Dan Greenfield at Front Page wonders Will the Antifa 11 Face Justice in San Diego? “Antifa is known to use force, fear, and violence” for the Democrats. Julie Kelly again, Whitmer Lawyer Seeks Recusal in ‘Kidnapping’ Retrial, "Totten’s recusal memo would shed light on what Whitmer and her office knew and when they knew it—which is why the Justice Department appears desperate to keep it under wraps."

Enough for now! On with the 4th of July weekend! Enjoy.
