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.
Report: over 85,000 migrant children ‘lost’ could be in labor market or sex trafficked
A report from the Department of Health and Human Services has prompted twenty-two state attorneys general to write a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray.
A report issued this month by the Department of Health and Human Services stated more than 85,000 migrant children could be lost. Tragically, many of those children likely were forced into the labor market or sex trafficked. The attorneys general said the Biden administration needs to find these missing children.
“By law, the Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for keeping these children safe when they arrive,” the attorneys general said in their letter. “That responsibility includes reuniting children with family or placing them with a sponsor who will protect them from trafficking and exploitation. But that Department is not living up to its responsibilities, and the cost of that failure is tens of thousands of missing children.”
The letter asks for information to be provided on when the children were last seen and what safeguards are in place to ensure they are placed with family members.
“The Department of Health and Human Services must ensure that it is not handing over children to criminals and sex traffickers,” the attorneys general said. “It cannot do so if it does not know to whom it is handing these children.”
The Center Square reports that Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird led the coalition along with Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch and Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes.
“Losing 85,000 kids is like losing the entire population of Sioux City,” Bird said. “This is unacceptable. As a mom, it makes me sick to know that many of these missing kids have been trapped into forced labor and exploited by heinous sex traffickers. It’s the federal government’s job to keep these children safe. I’ve joined with 21 other attorneys general in demanding that the Biden Administration immediately locate and protect these children.”
