Biden’s approval rating falls lower than the lowest-rated governor as it dips to below 30% in 17 states
The Daily Wire reports on how Biden’s approval ratings have fallen in a number of states.
Democrat President Joe Biden’s approval rating is so low that he now has a lower approval rating than every governor in the U.S., and his approval rating has dipped to as low as 18% in one state.
According to a recent Morning Consult poll, five of the six least popular governors in the U.S. are Democrats, with Oregon Democrat Governor Kate Brown having the lowest approval rating of 43%.
A recent poll from Civiqs, an online polling and analytics company, found that Biden’s approval rating is 37%, with his lowest marks coming in from West Virginia.

One interesting thing is the Texas poll results
I find it interesting that Texas did not poll Biden under 30% (as did a number of other conservative states).
Although I don’t doubt the results of the poll, I wonder if the following might have affected the outcomes:
- I have heard reports on the radio suggesting that Texas households make more use of caller id than households in other states. I know that I use caller id to avoid unknown and unwanted calls. If this is the case, Texans might avoid calls from pollsters. However, I cannot prove the state-wide use of caller id.
- I suspect that, with Bidenflation, more people are taking multiple jobs. Therefore, people may not be available for polling.
The Biden vaccine rule for health workers gets blocked in 10 states
The Times Union reports some good news for healthcare workers across 10 states and bad news for Dementia Joe.
A federal judge on Monday blocked President Joe Biden’s administration from enforcing a coronavirus vaccine mandate on thousands of health care workers in 10 states that had brought the first legal challenge against the requirement.
The court order said that the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid had no clear authority from Congress to enact the vaccine mandate for providers participating in the two government health care programs for the elderly, disabled and poor.
The preliminary injunction by St. Louis-based U.S. District Judge Matthew Schelp applies to a coalition of suing states that includes Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. All those states have either a Republican attorney general or governor. Similar lawsuits also are pending in other states.
The federal rule requires COVID-19 vaccinations for more than 17 million workers nationwide in about 76,000 health care facilities and home health care providers that get funding from the government health programs. Workers are to receive their first dose by Dec. 6 and their second shot by Jan. 4.
The court order against the health care vaccine mandate comes after Biden’s administration suffered a similar setback for a broader policy. A federal court previously placed a hold on a separate rule requiring businesses with more than 100 employees to ensure their workers get vaccinated or else wear masks and get tested weekly for the coronavirus.

This doesn’t come as a total surprise
Even Dementia Joe expected these overreaches to be brought in — he just didn’t know how long the courts would allow him to get away with his lawlessness and how well the press could cover for him. Just as he knew his lawless eviction ban would be overturned (several times), he knew that the vaccine mandate always stood on shaky ground.
Federal judge blocks Biden vaccine mandate in three states
According to a 30 November 2021 article in the Daily Wire, U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove ruled against Biden’s vaccination mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.
A federal judge in Kentucky issued a preliminary injunction on Tuesday against Democrat President Joe Biden’s coronavirus vaccine mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in three states.
The Lexington Herald Leader reported:
U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove, who serves the Eastern District of Kentucky, issued the opinion and order Tuesday afternoon. It came in response to a challenge from Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who joined many other state attorneys general in challenging the mandate.
“This is not a case about whether vaccines are effective. They are,” Van Tatenhove wrote. “Nor is this a case about whether the government, at some level, and in some circumstances, can require citizens to obtain vaccines. It can.”
He said the case was about whether Biden could impose vaccines on the employees of government contractors.
“The question presented here is narrow,” he said. “Can the president use congressionally delegated authority to manage the federal procurement of goods and services to impose vaccines on the employees of federal contractors and subcontractors? In all likelihood, the answer to that question is no.”
“Once again, the Court is asked to wrestle with important constitutional values implicated in the midst of a pandemic that lingers,” he said. “These questions will not be finally resolved in the shadows. Instead, the consideration will continue with the benefit of full briefing and appellate review. But right now, the enforcement of the contract provisions in this case must be paused.”
The order blocks the Biden administration from enforcing the vaccine mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in all covered contracts in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.
