    Surge Summary: President Biden’s Week included a “State of the Union” that generated limp ratings, a Rally in Georgia which that had strange visuals and polling results that are nothing for him to cheer about.

    Biden’s Odd Choice

    [Thursday], President Biden took a victory lap in Georgia after his unofficial State of the Union address to celebrate his first 100 days in office.

    But going to Georgia is an odd choice for Biden.  He has condemned the state for returning to the days of Jim Crow.  He supported punishing Georgia with boycotts.  Yet the first place he goes after his big address to the nation is Georgia?

    Once again, the visual of his rally was just like the bad optics from his speech before Congress.  It was as if we’re stuck in April of 2020, not April of 2021.  Many at the drive-in rally stayed in their cars.

    And the vaccinated Biden, with his vaccinated wife and his vaccinated Secret Service agents all seemed to panic when he couldn’t find his mask at the podium.

    I don’t understand the message they are trying to send.  This was an outdoor event, and he just told us that we don’t have to wear masks outside.

    Ratings Bomb

    While Big Media continues to act like Biden’s address to the nation was a modern-day version of the Gettysburg Address, the American people obviously disagree.  The ratings are in and Biden bombed.  Only 27 million people watched Biden’s address Wednesday night.

    Apparently, the only time Biden supporters show up is on Election Day.  Strange.

    For perspective, Donald Trump’s first address before Congress in 2017 got just under 48 million viewers.  In 2018, 46 million Americans tuned in for Trump’s State of the Union address.  In 2019, just under 47 million tuned in.  And in 2020, 37 million watched the State of the Union address.

    So, Donald Trump’s worst ratings were still significantly better than Joe Biden’s showing Wednesday night.

    In addition, a new Rasmussen poll asked voters to rank Biden’s first 100 days.  Only 36% said they were a “success,” while 44% said they were a “failure.”

    Asked if Biden has been a “better” or “worse” president than expected, only 26% said Biden has been “better than expected,” while 39% said he has been “worse than expected.”

    Biden’s radical agenda is clearly failing to unite the country.

    I hope you have had a chance to review our list of Biden’s 100 mistakes in his first 100 days.  Please share it with friends and family members, especially those who may still cling to the fiction that Biden is a “moderate.”

    And please support our efforts to stop Biden’s radical agenda.

    We can’t do it without you!
