Joe Biden was elected president on inauguration day, but has faced a growing list of problems that will define his legacy. These include spiraling inflation, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, resurgence of mass shootings, and the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. In addition, Biden has disappointed one out of every five members of the base. Here are five reasons why he’s disappointed his base. Let’s begin.
Vice President Joe Biden
Vice President Joe Biden has a long record of delivering results for the American people. In his previous roles, he has fought for the American auto industry and saved 1.5 million jobs in the auto supply chain. He is also the head of the White House Task Force on Sexual Assault, a new group aimed at preventing sexual assault on college campuses. The task force will be co-chaired by the Vice President’s Advisor on Violence Against Women and the Executive Director of the White House Council on Women and Girls.
Biden has a large family. He has two daughters and a son. His daughter Ashley Biden is a social worker who works at the Delaware Center for Justice and has five grandchildren. Vice President Joe Biden has also written a book entitled, ‘How to Defend Yourself in the Public Eyes of a Judge’. The book has many other interesting facts about Vice President Biden’s life. Here are some of the facts you might not know about his children.
While Joe Biden’s political career is well-documented, his son Hunter’s background has cast a shadow on his father’s reputation. Hunter Biden had a lobbying career before working in the family business with his uncle James. Both men had clients whose interests overlapped with those of Joe Biden. But these entanglements could create political problems for Democrats, given their own history of mixing business and politics.
While Joe Biden’s family emigrated from Scranton, Pennsylvania, he was only ten years old when his family moved to Delaware. He later attended Syracuse University and earned a law degree. In 1970, he became a member of the New Castle County council and, in 1972, became the sixth-youngest senator in the U.S. Senate. He served in the Senate for 12 years and served as its chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.
His relationship with President Barack Obama
While initially skeptical about Joe Biden’s candidacy, President Barack Obama has increasingly been involved in the vice president’s campaign. Obama even requested a briefing on Biden’s campaign before he officially entered the race. It is clear that Biden hoped to run for president in 2008 and sees no reason not to. The former senator from Delaware hoped to push through a policy he held dearly, which was partitioning Iraq into three ethnic enclaves.
But the two men’s relationships have not always been smooth. During the 2008 presidential race, Biden impressed Obama during the debates, which helped him gain more support. While Barack Obama struggled with the debate format, Biden was a calm and respectful rival. During the final debate before the Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton approached Biden. Both men were sincerely moved by each other’s presence.
His disapproval rating
The latest Gallup poll shows that less than a fifth of American voters approve of the job Biden is doing as president. In a sign of trouble, he is already trailing Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in disapproval among his base. Yet his approval rating still ranks him near the top among Republicans. The disapproval rating is indicative of a wider trend of dissatisfaction with President Obama’s policies, as well.
The survey found that while a majority of Democrats approved of President Obama’s performance, a majority of independents and Republicans disapproved. The disapproval rate is greater than it was for his predecessors. In May, his job approval rating was at its lowest level, and has been below 50% since August 2017. His disapproval rate matches that of his Republican counterpart, who reached his lowest approval rating during his first 100 days in office.
