Joe Biden's average job approval rating during his third year in office was the lowest of any president since Jimmy Carter. This is unsurprising given the numerous crises Americans face because of Biden's failed Far Left policies.
According to Gallup:
"During President Joe Biden's third full year in office, spanning Jan. 20, 2023, to Jan. 19, 2024, an average of 39.8% of Americans approved of his job performance. Among prior presidents in the Gallup polling era who were elected to their first term, only Jimmy Carter fared worse in his third year."
MAKE NO MISTAKE: The American people know that Joe Biden is a failed president. Biden's reckless Far Left policies are directly responsible for our historic border crisis, which has resulted in over 3 million illegal immigrants being released into our country in FY23 alone by the Biden Administration. Bidenomics continues to fail the American people, costing the average American worker a paycheck and a half per year and the typical American household over $11,400 more a year to buy the basics. Joe Biden's weakness on the world stage has plunged the world into chaos as our adversaries in Beijing, Moscow, Tehran, and around the world have become emboldened.
BIDEN’S BORDER CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:
Since Joe Biden took office:
There have been 8 million illegal crossings nationwide.
There have been OVER 6.7 MILLION illegal crossings of our Southern Border.
There have been 1.7 million known gotaways who evaded U.S. Border Patrol.
In November, there were 242,418 illegal immigrants encountered at the Southern Border.
This is a 236% increase from November 2020.
November was the 33rd straight month, where monthly illegal immigrant encounters have been higher than even the highest month seen under President Trump.
In November, 18 more individuals whose names appear on the terrorist watchlist were stopped trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border between ports of entry.
So far under Biden, 312 of these individuals whose names appear on the terrorist watchlist were stopped trying to cross the Southern Border.
In FY23, 169 people whose names appear on the terrorist watchlist were stopped trying to cross the Southern Border, an all time record.
This total is more than the encounters in all FY17, FY18, FY19, FY20, FY21, and FY22 combined.
Biden’s Far Left open border policies are to blame for this historic crisis.
During Biden’s first 100 days in office, he took 94 executive actions on immigration, including halting the construction of the border wall.
In August 2022, Biden and his Administration decided to make the border crisis WORSE by formally ending former President Trump’s successful ‘Remain in Mexico’ program.
The Biden Administration announced on May 10, 2023, that it would allow for the release of some migrants into the U.S. with no way to track them.
Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has now admitted that 40 percent of catch-and-release migrants have disappeared.
Despite this historic crisis Joe Biden has only visited the southern border ONCE, and it was widely panned as nothing more than a photo-op.

BIDEN’S NATIONAL SECURITY CRISIS:
Joe Biden has failed to stand up to our adversaries in Beijing, Tehran, and Moscow.
Iranian-backed terrorists have launched numerous missile strikes on American servicemembers stationed in the Middle East.
These strikes have injured multiple American servicemembers.
While American servicemembers were under attack, Iranian-backed terrorist Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was MIA, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks was on vacation in Puerto Rico.
On January 1, 2024, Austin was hospitalized the Department of Defense did not disclose Austin’s hospitalization to President Biden, Congress, senior Defense Department officials, or senior White House national security staff for several days.
Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks was not informed of Austin’s hospitalization when she assumed his duties and was on vacation in Puerto Rico.
In the chain of command, the Secretary of Defense serves as the connection through which the President commands and controls our armed forces; it is unknown who was calling the shots while Austin was hospitalized.
House Committee on Armed Services, under the leadership of Chairman Mike Rogers (R-AL) has launched a formal inquiry into Secretary Austin’s failure to disclose his hospitalization and incapacitation.
The Biden Administration allowed a Chinese surveillance balloon to traverse the entire continental U.S. over the course of 7 days,gathering intelligence and flying over sensitive military sites, before taking action.
The balloon entered U.S. airspace on January 28th over the Aleutian Islands in Alaska.
Despite President Biden knowing of the threat and invasion of U.S. airspace violating our national sovereignty, he waited 5 days before issuing an order to shoot down the balloon.
The American people deserve to know why Joe Biden allowed this national security threat for so long, why he tried to hide it from the American people, and what information our foreign adversaries were gathering.
Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan resulted in:
OVER 1,000 Americans were abandoned behind enemy lines for months at the mercy of the Taliban and $7 billion in U.S. military equipment was left behind.
Under Biden, the U.S. Army fell 15,000 soldiers short of their recruitment goal for FY22, missing by 25%.
According to the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Personnel Policy, who testified before the Senate Armed Services Personnel Subcommittee, “This constitutes an unprecedented mission gap.”
The Army projects the number of active duty soldiers could drop by as much as 6% in FY23, below the branch’s budgeted target request for the year.
