It’s no secret that President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have plummeted in his short time in office. What may not have been known, however, is that the president has fallen to an even lower approval rating than his vice president, Kamala Harris.
According to a poll conducted by Gallup, 43 percent approved of the way Biden is handling his job, versus 51 percent who disapprove. Vice President Kamala Harris narrowly beat her commander-in-chief with a 44 percent approval rating. Her disapproval rating, however, was higher with 53 percent.
For the poll, 800 people were randomly selected to be interviewed by telephone between December 1st and 16th. The poll asked one simple question of the sampled adults: “Do you approve or disapprove of the way each of the following is handling their job?”
The following eleven U.S. leaders were named: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, Director of the NIAID Dr. Anthony Fauci, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Attorney General Merrick Garland, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, Vice President Kamala Harris, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, President Joe Biden, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts received the highest approval percentage at 60. Roberts received a 34 percent ‘disapprove’ mark. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell received the lowest approval rating, coming in at 34 percent. His ‘disapprove’ percentage was 63.
Vice President Kamala Harris tied at 44 percent approval rating with Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. 54 percent disapproved with how Harris is handling her job. However, the veep still beat her boss, who came in third from last with an approval rating of 43 percent and a disapproval rating of 51 percent.

FL bill bans critical race theory in schools, businesses to end ‘discomfort’, ‘psychological stress’
Florida has introduced a new bill to combat the woke culture of teaching “critical race theory” or CRT. The bill aims to avoid making people “discomfort” when being taught CRT by banning it from public schools and private businesses.
On January 18, it passed the state Senate Committee on Education with six ‘yeas’ and three ‘nays.’ It now moves to debate among state senators. The bill states individuals shouldn’t be made to “feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race, color sex, or national origin.”
Additionally, the bill states educators and businesses cannot teach that “one race, religion, ethnicity, or sex is inherently superior to another race, religion, ethnicity or sex; an individual, by virtue, the individual’s race, religion, ethnicity, or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive whether consciously or unconsciously.”
In June of 2021, Florida’s state Board of education banned CRT from public school classrooms for the purpose of guarding children against lessons that could “distort historical events.” Governor Ron DeSantis supported the measure in front of state senators in Wildwood, Florida in December of 2021, saying:
“Nobody wants this crap, OK? This is an elite-driven phenomenon being driven by bureaucratic elites, elites in universities and elites in corporate America and they’re trying to shove it down the throats of the American people. You’re not doing that in the state of Florida.”
Naturally in politics, there are plenty of those who are against the idea. “Students deserve the best education we can provide, and that means giving them a true picture of their world and our shared history as Americans. Hiding facts doesn’t change them” said Florida Education Association (FEA) President Andrew Spar in a statement to ABC News. “Give kids the whole truth and equip them to make up their own minds and think for themselves.”
