U.S.—In a recent Quinnipiac poll, 38% of people still approve of the job President Biden is doing. This is surprising, since Biden has been a complete failure at every aspect of his presidency — the economy, protecting the border, foreign affairs, handling the pandemic — and it’s unclear what those who approve of him think his job is.
“Oh yeah, good old Joe,” said Rufus Reed, a plumber who approved of Biden’s job performance. “He works at the local hardware store, right? He knows a lot about washers.”
Isabel Howard, a nurse, thought Biden was the guy who mows the grass along the freeway. “It’s never very long,” she said. “I don’t know what more you could look for.”
Derek Goodman, who is unemployed and approves of Biden, seemed to have more of an idea who he is. “He’s that guy on TV who does the Grandpa Simpson bit where he just kind of rambles,” he said. “I don’t really understand what show he’s on, but I see clips of him online. He’s hilarious.”
One person was very negative about the current president but just didn’t understand that the president is Joe Biden. “The president is doing a terrible job,” said Joe Biden. “Whoever that guy is, he’s really screwing up this country. That’s what I was telling everyone at the ice cream shop where I work.” One of Biden’s aides then whispered something in his ear, and his eyes went wide. “Oh no!”
