The tone being set by the White House right now is simply unforgivable for many Americans. They see a lackadaisical and reluctant President who has a hard time looking interested in the job until they put him behind the wheel of some new vehicle in some new factory in some midwestern city.

Perks of the job, I suppose.
But outside some of those events, which feel a little like a monarch visiting his more industrious peasants, Joe Biden has been pretty much unwilling to take serious, meaningful action on some of the issues that face our nation, desperately, as a whole.
The polls are being to show it, as well, pushing the White House into a two-pronged fight; against the mood of the nation, and against the media that’s feeding it.
Seventy-two percent of Americans say the nation is headed in the wrong direction, a Sunday NBC News poll revealed.
As rising inflation, coronavirus chaos, supply chain woes, and foreign policy blunders have impacted Americans throughout 2021 and into 2022, 72 percent of respondents believe the country is on the wrong track, up one point from October’s NBC News poll.Advertisement - story continues below
Only six times have 70 percent or more of Americans believed the nation is headed in the wrong direction in consecutive surveys.
And that wasn’t all. Oh, no.
The polling also revealed both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s approval ratings remain in the 30s. Biden: 39-48 percent. Harris: 32-49 percent.
According to the poll, the economy and jobs are the most important crisis facing the country (42 percent), with coronavirus (29 percent), election integrity (25 percent), and border security (22 percent) subsequently ranked.
Biden has had a year to overcome whatever messes that he may think Donald Trump left him, and it appears as though that’s about as much time as America was willing to give him to fix them.
