Joe Biden protected by media, voters say
NEWS AND NOTICES:
Well, surprise. Nearly two-thirds of likely US voters – 63% – now agree that the mainstream media “protects President Bidenby not asking him to weigh in on tough political questions about serious issues, such as the national debt or the US southern border crisis.
Additionally, 59% say the president’s staff “prevents him from speaking to the media.”
So says a new Zogby Analytics poll of 868 likely U.S. voters, conducted May 26-27 and released Monday.
“While President Biden may appear to be on top of the world, and his numbers prove it, he could suddenly be in for more drama. The mainstream media is on his side, but how much longer will voters be on his side? If Biden fails to respect the infrastructure and the Democrats lose their majority in the House of Representatives to the Republicans, Biden’s popularity could take a hit and he could fall from his pedestal,” said a seasoned pollster. Jonathan Zogby wrote in his analysis of the results.
But wait, there’s more.
Nearly half (49%) of those polled believe Mr Biden takes credit for some former presidents donald trump, such as the deployment and distribution of the coronavirus vaccine and the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan. 37% of voters believed that Mr. Biden had accomplished these Herculean tasks alone.
Things could get tough for the White House as the months pass.
“Once this rush for summer fun is over, voters could expect a rude awakening, much like President Biden, if he doesn’t deliver on all his promises, which is quite a difficult task. Not only must he please the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, but he must also be a president for all Americans, and please them too. It’s an even bigger order,” Zogby predicted in his analysis of the results.
REMEMBER THESE FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
There is a ‘civics crisis’ in American schools, say parents and teachers, who remain concerned that genuine understanding of understanding America is in a ‘disastrous state’ according to a new report and a well-focused survey by The Heritage Foundation.
“The survey, which examined responses from 1,003 teachers and 1,012 parents, comes as the radical left imposes the discriminatory tenets of critical race theory into student lesson plans under the guise of education. civic,” the conservative think tank said.
“Two-thirds of parents and nearly three-quarters of teachers share a strong desire to see more emphasis on civic education. Secondary school attracted the greatest interest with 63% of parents and nearly 74% of teachers saying civic education should be given more emphasis,” the research noted.
However, only a third of each group is satisfied with civic education in their schools. The survey also found that 79% of parents and 74% of teachers said they would be willing to spend more time with their children or students to ensure they receive a decent civics education.
There has also been a change in culture. A third of parents said the classroom atmosphere itself had become less civil; 4 out of 10 teachers agree.
“Parents and teachers agree that the most important function of civic education in modern America is practical information and guidance on how to perform the duties of a citizen. Both groups also agree that civics curricula should focus primarily on “the rights and duties of citizenship” rather than critical race theory – the ideology that teaches that people are either oppressed or oppressors, according to the color of their skin,” said angela sailor, co-author and vice-president of the Feulner Institute, an initiative within the Heritage Foundation to restore faith in America’s founding values and principles.
