Hollywood star and big Joe Biden supporter George Clooney gave up the game when he tried to pin Joe Biden’s terrible poll numbers on former President Joe Biden. If this is the Dems new plan, to blame Trump for Biden’s debacles, they will lose bigger than predicted in 2024.
Clooney said of Biden’s sinking numbers: “It’s like taking a battered child and thinking everything’s going to be OK his first day in school, there’s a lot of things that have to be repaired, you know? There’s a lot of healing that has to happen, and it’s going to take time.
“Poll numbers come up and go down; I would expect them to go up again. Donald Trump’s went up and down.”
He called Trump a knucklehead who was famous for chasing girls before ripping Trump supporters.
“It’s so funny because he was just this knucklehead. I knew him before he was a president, he was just a guy who was chasing girls. Every time you went out he’d come over and be like, ‘What’s the name of that girl?’ That’s all he was,” Clooney said.
“The idea that there’s this whole group of people that they think he’s the champion of, which he certainly can’t stand in real life, but he’s going to play this out for a while, and we’ll see where we go with it as a country.”
He said of Trump’s chances in 2024:
“My hope is we have a little better sense than to do that again.”
“I turned 60 this year, and I had a conversation with my wife,” he said. “We were working a lot, as we both do, and I said, ‘We have to think of these as the halcyon years.’”
Clooney said he would not run for office in the future.
“No, because I would actually like to have a nice life. I turned 60 this year and I had a conversation with my wife, and we were working a lot, as we both do, and I said, ‘We have to think of these as the halcyon years.’”
“But in 20 years, I’ll be 80 and that’s a real number,” he added.
“Doesn’t matter how much you work out, doesn’t matter what you eat, you’re 80. And so I said, ‘We have to make sure we enjoy and live these years in the best possible way.’”
Last week USA Today reported:
Biden’s approval rating has dropped to 38%, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday. That’s down from 42% three weeks ago and from a high of 50% in mid-February.
“Battered on trust, doubted on leadership, and challenged on overall competency, President Biden is being hammered on all sides as his approval rating continues its downward slide to a number not seen since the tough scrutiny of the Trump administration,” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said in a prepared statement.
While the Quinnipiac poll has Biden at an all-time low approval rating, an analysis of various polls by FiveThirtyEight shows it remains at 44%. That is 6 points higher than the Quinnipiac poll.
While Biden maintains wild popularity among Democrats – about 80% approve of the job he is doing – his approval rating among Republicans and independents, who make up the largest portion of the sample, has cratered, according to Quinnipiac.
About 32% of independents approve of Biden’s job as president. His approval rating among Republicans is only 4%.
