In his nine-minute speech, Biden reminded everyone that overall, jobs are on the rise. “We have created more than 2 million jobs in total since I took office,” he said. “More jobs than have been created in the first four months in any presidency in modern history.” Conveniently, he left out the historic job losses that happened leading up to his inauguration.
Biden also blamed a lower number on vaccination rates, since the data was collected during the first week in May. Back then, Biden said, the vaccination rate for adults was only 35%. Just Thursday is was reported to be at 63%.
Yet, Biden also patted himself on the back for the unemployment benefits under his administration. nearly 20,000 more childcare jobs. “A temporary boost in unemployment benefits that ended -that we enacted I should say-helped people who lost their jobs to no fault of their own.” But, the boost is set to end in 90 days.
“I’m extremely optimistic,” Biden ended his speech, “and I hope you are as well.”

Gallup poll: GOP holds large advantage over Dems in economy, national security
A recent Gallup poll shows Americans overwhelmingly have faith in Republicans over Democrats when it comes to the economy. In fact, the GOP “holists largest advantage on the economy in over 30 years, with 53% of Americans trusting Republicans more than Democrats on the issue” writes the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The poll holds Republicans at a 14-point lead over Democrats for handling the economy better. “The GOP scored 10 points higher on the economy than last year, marking the largest margin between the two parties since 1991.”
Gallup’s publication of the poll is titled ‘Neither Party Well-Liked, but GOP Holds Advantage on Issues.’ It may not be a shock that “The two major political parties remain unpopular in the U.S., with 56% of Americans viewing the Republican Party unfavorably and 58% saying the same of the Democratic Party” but the GOP holds “historically ample leads.”

“Fifty-three percent of Americans believe the Republican Party will do a better job of keeping the country prosperous over the next few years, whereas 39% choose the Democratic Party.”
“A slightly larger majority, 57%, have greater faith in the Republican Party to protect the country from international terrorism and military threats, while 35% favor the Democrats.”
