REPORT: A Year Into His Term, Biden Backers Are Not Happy

The people who voted for Joe Biden are not happy.

It has been almost a year since he was sworn in and he has little to show for his presidency. His supporters have even less.

Anyone who has paid attention to American politics over the years could have told Biden supporters to be prepared for disappointment.

The Associated Press reports:

Biden backers ‘not seeing the results’ a year into his term

Just over a year ago, millions of energized young people, women, voters of color and independents joined forces to send Joe Biden to the White House. But 12 months into his presidency, many describe a coalition in crisis.

Leading voices across Biden’s diverse political base openly decry the slow pace of progress on key campaign promises. The frustration was especially pronounced this past week after Biden’s push for voting rights legislation effectively stalled, intensifying concerns in his party that fundamental democratic principles are at risk and reinforcing a broader sense that the president is faltering at a moment of historic consequence.

“People are feeling like they’re getting less than they bargained for when they put Biden in office. There’s a lot of emotions, and none of them are good,” said Quentin Wathum-Ocama, president of the Young Democrats of America. “I don’t know if the right word is ‘apoplectic’ or ‘demoralized.’ We’re down. We’re not seeing the results.”…

If Biden cannot unify his party and reinvigorate his political coalition, the GOP at the state and federal levels will almost certainly grow more emboldened, and the red wave that shaped a handful of state elections last year could fundamentally shift the balance of power across America in November’s midterm elections.

The AP apparently changed the original title of their article.

Seriously, what did Biden voters expect was going to happen?
