Support for President Biden is dwindling nationwide and Michiganders, like other voters throughout the nation, are making it known.
When President Biden decided to pay the state of Michigan a visit, he was greeted by hundreds of protestors. Signs proclaimed that former President Donald Trump won the last election, and called on Biden to stop the spending and build the wall among other things.
The mainstream media claimed that the area is “heavily Republican” in an attempt to portray the protest as an expected occurrence in a partisan area. However, the claim is patently false. Former President Trump won the district by less than 1% in the 2020 election, and the area has a Democrat representative in Congress. After all, this was the entire reason he was there — Biden is attempting to shore up in preparation for next year’s mid-term elections.
Put simply, it’s entirely plausible to say that at least a few of the individuals at the protest were people who voted for the current President last year, but are entirely unsatisfied with the way he is managing the country.
They are not alone. Thousands of sports fans have taken to spouting obscenities about the president in advance of sports games. Even mainstream news polls show that President Biden’s approval rating is abysmal among not just Republicans, but also independent voters. Hundreds of voters also came out in Idaho last month to protest during President Biden’s visit to the state, while New York City has seen massive protests in the wake of President Biden’s Draconian mandatory vaccine policies.
President Biden’s claim that he would unify the country is laughable. Individuals and states are more divided than ever, and the president has fanned the flames by putting down people who refuse the vaccine and dumping on Republican politicians who won’t support his ideas.
What’s more, members of his own party are even attacking fellow party members to pressure them into supporting progressive legislation. The protest in Michigan makes it crystal clear that voters are tired of the direction the nation is heading. It’s extremely likely that Biden will face even more of these protestors every time he makes a public appearance.
