Opinion: Biden racks up wins but doesn’t like it
And yet, there is no indication that the president’s position has improved significantly. Biden is winning battles, but he’s not getting much love. Is it only a matter of time before Biden’s polls catch up with the new wave of achievement?
Now, after months of legislative gridlock, however, Biden’s agenda isn’t just moving forward, it’s moving forward at a gallop.
The bill’s two main thrusts — the economy and the environment — have the power to move the electoral needle. For all the disappointment with Biden, which may stem in part from his lackluster rhetorical prowess, Americans are also concerned about wallet issues.
But if the Manchin-Schumer compromise passes, as seems likely, Biden’s standing with Democrats — especially younger voters — could be strengthened. And if gas prices continue to fall, inflation begins to decline, and the stock market doesn’t crash again, most of the country — many of whom aren’t obsessed with politics — could start to feel more optimistic, helping Biden’s endorsement gain traction. .
At this point in his presidency, however, he can rejoice in a winning streak and hope he has turned the tide.
