As the midterm elections approach, Americans are paying greater attention to politics than ever before and drawing clearer voting lines.
Both parties are making high-profile appearances and public declarations in an effort to win over voters.
In July, it was reported that Pennsylvania, a swing state, exhibited poor support for Biden. Morning Consult showed that along with Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, “only 2 in 5 voters approved of Biden’s job performance, down by double digits after nearly uniform declines that started in the third quarter of 2021. The latest data based on responses gathered April 1 – June 30 in all 50 states suggests Democrats face a tougher environment than the GOP did in 2018 when it would go on to lose 40 House seats but add Senate seats…”
Reuters reported last week that a poll conducted on Tuesday revealed that 55 percent of Americans disapprove of the president. ” The president’s sagging popularity, which drifted as low as 36% in May and June, has weighed on his party’s chances in November. Republicans are favored to win the House of Representatives, though experts say Democrats have a better chance of keeping the Senate.”
“This week’s poll showed about a third of Americans, including one in five Democrats and two in five Republicans, saw the economy as the most important problem facing the country,” Reuters continued.
One would assume that, despite low numbers, a presence in one’s home state would be met with universal ovation, but this seems to be dwindling.
Both President Biden and First Lady Biden are avid Eagles fans. The First Lady was born in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, hence the Philadelphia Eagles are her hometown team. The duo has previously attended Philadelphia Eagles games.
The current president was present at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII, when the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots led by Tom Brady to win their first championship.
In May of 2021, the president complimented Eagles fans. Biden stated at the time, “Philadelphia supporters are the most knowledgeable and obnoxious fans in the world.”
It appears that these remarks might be prophetic.
On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles were unbeaten and set to thwart the Dallas Cowboys’ effort at a comeback in week 6 of the professional football season. As the two teams competed at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, emotions were high. President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump attended the ceremony.
Sunday, Jill Biden served as honorary captain of the Philadelphia Eagles. Biden led the crowd in a song of “Fly Eagles Fly” and was spotted conversing with Philadelphia 76ers player Joel Embiid. She took part in the coin-toss.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Biden attended the event to support the Cancer Moonshot project of the White House.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
The initiative takes the name “Moonshot” from the technological reference to an “ambitious, exploratory and groundbreaking project undertaken without the assurance of near-term profitability or benefit, and perhaps without a full investigation of potential risks and benefits.” The Biden “cancer Moonshot” program is a relaunch of the same program started during the Obama administration. The Biden’s son, Beau Biden, passed away at 46 from a brain cancer, a disease that “remains stubbornly resistant to treatment.” CONTINUE READING…
