President Joe Biden’s plunging public approval rating isn’t his problem. It is a reflection of his problem. 

Biden held a big ceremony this week to sign the bipartisan infrastructure bill, the $1.2 trillion measure passed after months of wrangling in Congress. The public is well aware of it. And yet, in a new Washington Post poll, taken after the bill’s passage, Biden’s job approval rating has hit a new low — just 38% among registered voters, versus 57% who disapprove. So much for those Democrats who thought passing a big bill would boost Biden’s numbers.

To play further off of Jake Tapper’s words, at least it’s not a dumpster fire inside a train wreck!
