CNN’s Fareed Zakaria doesn’t have the best track record for being right, but a recent admission of his shows that the truth about Biden is becoming harder to ignore.

“He’s one of these people that’s been on air for years, gets almost everything wrong — but here he is, begrudgingly laying out some really, really bad news for the Democrats,” Dave Rubin says, before playing a recent clip of Zakaria on CNN.

“When President Biden made clear he was going to run for re-election, I had a sense of what his election strategy was and thought it was an intelligent path to victory after the chaos of COVID and Trump,” Zakaria says.

“I have to admit, none of this is playing out as I thought it would. Trump is now leading in almost all the swing states, but behind those numbers lie even more troubling details as someone worried about the prospects of a second Trump term,” he continues.

While Zakaria notes that polls aren’t always accurate, they have tended to underestimate Trump’s support rather than overestimate it.

“I doubt that there are many shy Biden voters in the country,” he says, adding, “the shift here is stark.”

He then explains that Trump has a 22-point lead over Biden on whom voters trust more to deal with the economy, which marks a 15-point bump for Trump compared to the same poll in 2020. And on immigration, Biden is 35 points behind Trump.

“Meanwhile, Republicans seem to be uniting behind Trump. Whatever opposition he faced in the primaries has largely melted away, and the trials against him keep him in the spotlight, infuriate his base who sees him as a martyr, and even may serve to make him the object of some sympathy among people in general who believe that his prosecutors are politically motivated,” Zakaria says.

“This happens to be true in my opinion,” he adds, shockingly. “I doubt the New York indictment would have been brought against a defendant whose name was not Donald Trump.”

President Biden's job approval plummets to lowest level since he took office, new poll finds

A new Quinnipiac poll found that President Joe Biden's job approval had tumbled among Americans to the lowest rate since taking office.

The poll says only 38% of Americans give the beleaguered president a positive job approval.

Slightly more than half of Americans, 53%, give Biden a negative job approval in the new poll. These represent the worst approval ratings for Biden from Quinnipiac since the beginning of his presidency.

Just three weeks ago, the same poll found that 42% of Americans said Biden was doing a good job, while 50% said he was doing a bad job. The drop from three weeks in his net approval rating went from -8 points to -15 percentage points.

The Biden administration has been pummeled by critics over the disastrous and humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan, the growing humanitarian crisis at the border, and continuing woes related to the economy.

Among Democrats, 80% said they approve of the job Biden is doing, while 60% of independents said they disapproved of the president.

Biden received the lowest approval rate when Americans were asked about the situation at the U.S.-Mexican border, with 67% in disapproval and only 23% approving. The president received the highest net rating in his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, but it was still slightly negative, with 48% approving and 50% in disapproval.

"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," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy in comments accompanying the poll results.

The Biden administration is currently struggling to pass massive spending bills to mollify the progressive wing of the party.
