The report is official, but it isn’t good for Joe Biden.
“A plurality of voters view President Biden as a ‘weaker’ commander in chief for the U.S. military compared to recent presidents,” according to a recent Rasmussen poll.
Breitbart News reported on the internals of the survey:
“Compared to most recent presidents, is President Biden a stronger commander in chief for the military or a weaker one?” the survey asked.
A plurality, 43 percent, said “weaker,” followed by 32 percent who said “stronger,” 18 percent who said “about the same,” and 7 percent who remain unsure.
Democrats are far more likely than Republicans to view Biden as a “stronger” commander in chief, 55 percent to the GOP’s 12 percent. Three-quarters of Republicans view Biden as “weaker,” as do a plurality (44 percent) of independents.
The survey also asked respondents if they believe Biden to be more aggressive or less aggressive than most recent presidents in pushing “what’s best for America” in dealing with other world leaders, specifically.
A majority, 54 percent, said “less aggressive,” compared to 24 percent who said “more aggressive” and 16 percent who said “about the same.” Over three-quarters of Republicans, 78 percent, said “less aggressive.” Fifty-four percent of independents and 31 percent of Democrats agreed.
The survey realist run counter to the narrative Biden’s team wants to spread. They want America to believe that the current President is strong and able to defend America’s interests, both financially and militarily.
The evidence just isn’t there.
