President Joe Biden's opening approval rating on Friday came in below the ratings of his two predecessors when they had just started their presidency, according to a new poll by Rasmussen.
Going deeper, 36 percent strongly approved of the job Biden was doing, and 38 percent strongly disapproved, according to Rasmussen. The polling company's daily tracking results are conduced by telephone surveys of 500 likely voters each night and reported on a three-day rolling average.
“The president re-entered the failed Paris climate agreement—a terrible bargain that would set us up to self-inflict major economic pain on working American families with no assurance that China or Russia would honor their commitments. In fact, the U.S. has already been reducing carbon emissions while China and other nations in the agreement have kept increasing theirs. Rejoining will just set us up to kill American jobs while our competitors continue to roar on by,” McConnell said on the Senate floor in Washington.
“The President also unilaterally cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline," he added. "The day-one priority was to kill thousands of American jobs including union jobs, disappoint our strong ally Canada, and reverse some of our progress toward energy security. This is a project that the liberal Canadian government and Prime Minister Trudeau support. An investment in North American energy. Even the Obama State Department concluded it would not harm the climate. But because canceling a pipeline project just feels like the green thing to do, the new administration killed these jobs.”
