It appears the Democrats’ “J6” extravaganza is an epic fail. Some of the proof was offered late Friday.
The pollsters questioned 1,541 adults from June 10 to June 13, which is significant as it started after the first night of the Democrats’ allegedly blockbuster, primetime hearing by the special committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.
The most critical point: The poll “found that if another presidential election were held today, more registered voters say they would cast ballots for Donald Trump (44%) than for Biden (42%) — even though the House Jan. 6 committee has spent the last week linking Trump to what it called a ‘seditious conspiracy’ to overturn the 2020 election and laying the groundwork for possible criminal prosecution.”
“Since Biden took office,” MSN.com continued, “no previous Yahoo News/YouGov poll has shown him trailing Trump (though Biden’s most recent leads have been within the margin of error, like this one is for Trump). One year ago, Biden led Trump by 9 percentage points. In 2020, Biden won the White House by more than 7 million votes.”
Adding more good news for Republicans, MSN.com noted, “Biden’s job approval rating has been atrophying for much of the last year, and the new survey shows that it has never been weaker.”
“A full 56% of Americans now disapprove of the president’s performance — the highest share to date — while just 39% approve. Three weeks ago, those numbers were 53% and 42%, respectively.”
“On average, Biden’s job approval scores are now a few points worse than Trump’s were at the parallel stage of his presidency.”
The poll, according to MSN.com, also revealed that among all Americans, Trump’s personal “favorability rating” is higher than Biden’s, 43 percent to 40 percent. Moreover, 64 percent of independents – or those who swung the last election for Biden – have an unfavorable opinion of the current president, as only 28 percent say they would vote for him over Trump.

Meanwhile, as stories have circulated in recent days that Biden, despite the disaster he’s been so far, is fully considering running for re-election in 2024, MSN.com pointed out “while 57% of independents say Trump shouldn’t try to make a comeback in 2024, far more — a full 76% — say the same about Biden.”
Overall, only 21 percent of Americans say Biden should give it another go in two years – which is almost 20 points lower than those who support the job he’s doing now.
But to return to the “J6” Committee, Breitbart News columnist John Nolte wrote that despite billions and billions of dollars in free publicity from the news outlets that agree with the Democrats, the poll shows the “whole thing is backfiring on Democrats and their corporate media allies.”
“Compared to last year, per an NBC poll (NBC!), fewer people blame Trump for the riots that broke out at what was a mostly peaceful protest at the U.S. Capitol. The whole thing is dumb and partisan, and the American people know it.”
“What’s more,” Nolte continued, “as gas and food prices hit one demoralizing record high after another, voters are disgusted by the lack of focus in D.C. on problems that matter. While working people drown in this morass, Joe Biden is policing pronouns, and [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi’s Congress is putting on show trials.”
“The news from the media and Democrats, though, is Our Trump obsession is more important than your family’s financial woes.”
